I cry when I see the castle for the first time and I'm not into Tomorrowland.

Fun topic to add things to:

1. Illuminations bores me, but I'll watch it because it's fireworks.
2. I hated the Broadway Version of The Lion King with the intensity of 100 burning suns.
3. I can't stand Minnie Mouse, I think she's a <nasty B word goes here>.
4. Technically, I haven't been to Tom Sawyer's Island because DL changed the name to Pirate's Landing.
5. POTC = nap time.
6. Don't care about Bambi or Dumbo's Mother, but the Circle of Life in the Lion King movie and when Ariel says "I love you Daddy" makes me cry. buckets.
7. Don't care for DHS's Fantasmic, but will watch it only if I have priority seating.. see secret #1. (Disneyland's version is 100x better)
8. I actually liked the first High School Musical, even though there is a VERY VERY creepy message in it for anyone who understands musical theater.
9. I could ride Peter Pan's flight and Winnie The Pooh's Adventures all day long.
10. The opening of DL's Fantasmic, DL's Fireworks, DCA's World of Color, and MK's Fireworks all make me cry. buckets.

Well, if you know musical theater, MOST of the time the leads in a musical are romantic leads. Especially with the ones that tend to be put on by most high schools. Knowing that the premise of High School Musical is that the brother and sister are upset that they might lose the leads in the yearly musical... well.. i'll leave it at that.

I had to debate with myself on if i should comment or not. Yes more often then not the leads are romantic interest, but there is NO rule about it being so, and there is NO hint of a romance with the bro and sister of the movie....

I think this is just the case of people reading into things that do not exsist. I know of many many many productions where the "leads" are not romantic interests, and even a few shows where there isnt a true "romance story" at all......


Sigh.... Now the Music Theatre Major shuts up

I have not seen High School Musical I II or III... is there a 3? I have not seen all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies either. I did see part of one of the HSM's while it was being watched by my kids. I saw one of the pirate movies not sure which it was.... and am I the ONLY one who thinks that Johnny Depp is totally creepy! I've always preferred the Jimmy Stewart/Cary Grant type I guess.

I saw Broadways Lion King at the Kennedy Center in DC and totally loved it!!

You are totally correct, but I am having fun with it in general. I am really talking more Classical Music Theater: King & I, Sound of Music, Oklahoma, Grease.. the shows the high schools in my area were all putting on. And I wasn't saying that the Brother and Sister were being romantic.... just that it's an icky thought

Now, keeping on topic:

I don't like Mickey Head Ice Cream Bars.
I hate people with double wide strollers - especially in Disneyland where the streets are way narrower.

HI.......

I used to visit Kings Dominion in Dozwell, but now that I'm addicted to Disney there is NO comparison and KD isn't fun anymore.

We live about 1/2 hours drive into the city... you'd think we'd visit there more then!! I'd love to see more Disney musicals there. Going into the city is such a production!

Me neither!! I especially don't like that Nestle Toll house mickey head icecream sandwich. I think it was Mickey head shaped? Anyway, I ate one once and it was sooooo super sweet I thought I was gonna be sick!

Why is it that when you're in a hurry and you're trying to make the mad park dash... you seem to always get behind a bevy of double wide strollers and slow moving scooters. Now, I don't begrudge anybody their scooter or double stroller, clearly they're a "bare" necessity. But when the park is crowded, a person could be run over. In fact, my MIL was a "crazy scooter driver".. I think her scooter had a mind of its own, and she accidentally slightly "tapped" someone with it! It was so embarrassing! Luckily they were just irritated and not hurt. There is a learning curve with those things.

You'd think that with the name 'bear' in your handle, you'd love the honey-loving guy! My nickname is Bear as well and and he's simply a Silly Willy Nilly Ol' Bear! My kids love him!

I think Johnny Depp is a fabulous artist and is able to transform himself into whatever character he needs to portray at the moment. . .lol.

That's a good point.... but he's still creepy to me. There is just something creepy about him. Can't put my finger on it.

Who is that Dole Whip hater? Dole Whips are the most refreshing dessert on the planet!! ---- oh well.... more for me!

I'm more excited to go to WDW this year than my 5 y/o cousin is.
Never have I ever tried a Dole Whip.
I cried when I watched Toy Story 3.
