Wheres your favorite place in WDW?

i was just thinking about how much i love being on Main Street USA in MK, for me theres no feeling like it. I feel so happy and so at home there, i could just walk up and down all day and never EVER get bored.

So i was wondering wheres your favorite place in Walt Disney World?

Hi Jimmy

My favorite place at WDW is the Beach Club Villas, because it offers me access to my favorite Sand Bottom Pool STORMALONG BAY. Also it is the shortest stroll to the International Gate to EPCOT, and I love dining within the World Showcase, and then watching Illuminations. It takes a few minutes to walk back to the Resort, and the only distraction that possibly prevents me returning directly to my Villa, is Beaches N Creme for ice cream.

I love many locations in WDW but my very favorite place is the aviary on the Pangani Trail in AK.

Oh, tough one. Have to go with the World Showcase, but the Gorilla sanctuary on the Pangani Forest Trail is right there too. Love, love, love the gorillas.

In Italy, along the promenade, there is a small fenced in patch of flowers. Right there. Leaning up against it. Glass of muscato in one hand, arm around a friend or my old ball and chain, watching the glow of Illuminations cascade across the landscape and surrounding people.

Can I cheat and pick a place at DL? I've only been there once, but I remember standing in the entrance to the castle, with people all around me, with tears in my eyes realizing that "Walt stood here". In all the trips I've had, I've never felt closer to the man that Walt was.

I used to work there, and I love it too.

There is also a beautiful seating area along the river behind Flame Tree BBQ that I love.

I love the entire World Showcase, but the place that always makes me feel relaxed is the rocky area with the waterfalls in the back of the Canadian pavilion.

Many Favorite Spots

Like many people I have so many favorite spots.

I started working at the studios and find that I love getting a drink and hanging out by the Sunset Ranch Market to people watch. The Citizens of Hollywood are awesome. I have also recently become a big fan of Mulch Sweat and Shears.

My favorite time at Magic Kingdom is a late summer evening. When everyone is running for the best spot for wishes. I try and head over by splash mountain. I love the country feel.

I could spend an entire day in either Adventureland or the World Showcase. But if I had to choose one it would definitely be the World Showcase for the food and booze lol.

I'm going to have to go with sitting down for breakfast at Kona Cafe with my family. It's been our family tradition for many years to have breakfast there on our first day. When I am there I know we are starting vacation at our favorite place in the world...it's a great feeling every time!

My favorite place in all of Disney World is World Showcase at dusk. Just as the sun is going down, the street lights begin to glow, lighted reflections start showing up in the water, and the ambiance turns to warm and romantic. Walking arm in arm, with an alcoholic beverage, and admiring the view... priceless. (P.S. I can't help but giggle like a hormone-raging teenager every time I see that phallic wall in Morocco! I've taken so many pictures with that thing HAHAHAHA!)

This is a tough one. But I can spend the day at MK or Epcot and never get bored.

My favorite place's at WDW is having a delicious lemon drop drink on the porch of Crockets Tavern at Fort Wilderness before going to the Hoop.
And my other favorite place is at Epcot/France - sitting at one of those tables near the lake and drinking a Grande Mariner Orange Slush!!

I love the island off of Italy in World Showcase. It's my favorite spot to catch Illuminations....most of the countries are right in front of you, and, if it's a clear night, you can see Wishes too.
