You gotta be original because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for?

I hate KD as well (can you say trashy?!) We are passholders to Busch Gardens Williamsburg (and Water country). Since we live South Richmond its actually the same distance.

I see shows in RIC from time to time, or even DC.... but I much prefer to drive 8hs to see it on Broadway!

I, too, don't see the big whoop with Mickey Bars. I've never really liked ice cream bars of any kind though. The frozen bananas though

I'm also a frozen banana fanatic. Best I ever had was at the Marriott hotel in St. Thomas, USVA, but every time we go to the MK, I HAVE TO have one! (easy to put on the DDP at those kiosks)

My turn

Just returned from 4 solo days, so

- I cry during Festival of the Lion King and Mickey's Philharmagic
- I don't think Fantasmic is worth the time and effort
- I could spend hours at Monster's Inc Laugh Floor (and I always text the same two jokes and one of them almost always ends up in the show)
- I sometimes actually wish they still had the millenium parade (Tapestry of Nations?) at Epcot

I found the Tapestry of Nations on youtube and watch it all the time but it pales to seeing it in real life. I also miss the original Journey into Imagination this one just doesnt do it for me. I've never had a Mickey ice cream bar and I don't do Dumbo Is that anti Disney or something.

I dont like any of the rides in fantasyland but still make them a priority

I was slightly disapointed with le cellier (most likely due to all the hype on here! We still LOVED it but all my time on the DIS built my expectations up I couldnt tell you how they could have made it any yummier confusing I know!!)

I start off every trip by booking a Deluxe then I slowly move back down to mod then value eventually I will forget the price difference and finally stay at the POLY or GF!!

I get bored halfway through every parade just because I HATE standing around!

I dont like dole whips

I will eat anything mickey shaped!

I HATED chef mickeys!

I dont like wasting time in AK it does nothing for me! I actually avoided it last trip but Im sure my DH and DS will drag me next time!

I LOVE DHS but I never seem to spend enough time there!

It rains EVERYTIME I go to DHS!

Im pretty sure I get more excited to meet and greet with the characters than my 2 boys do!

I book the character meals for me!

Im jealous that BBB doesnt have an adult package!

I think HS is the worst park ever designed and always get lost no matter how many times I've been there.

I've been over 20 times and still never seen the Hall of Presidents

I change ADRs like I change my underwear... daily!

I don't really get the big deal with DDT

I think the best kept secret of the AP is minigolf prices.

I have never watched a parade and don't care if I do.

I think the bus system was devised by Satan himself and hate it with the fire of a thousand burning suns.

I miss the Walter Kronkite version of SSE.

I get bored at the MK. Quickly.

2. I'm not a Mickey fan.
3. I've never had a Dole whip.
4. I don't like the smoked turkey legs.
5. I think It's A Small World is creepy.
6. Can't stand Stitch.

The parades and Illuminations bore me...

I'm also shy and avoid the characters!

oooo... such a fun thread... I'm gonna post and then go back and start reading all 107 pages!

1. I honestly could care less about the daytime parades (with the exception of Move it! Shake it! Celebrate it!), and would rather use that time to do attractions. But, my partner loves parades, so I stand there through the whole thing... for her. (I do love the night parades!)

2. I've seen Fantasmic only once... in 2005... that was enough.

3. The only reason I really go to DHS is for a butterfinger cupcake from Starring Rolls... and (if it's Christmas-time) the Osborne Lights (though I do try to do TSM if it's not too crowded... yeah right)

4. I don't really "get" the appeal of the Grand Floridian. It's pretty from the outside, but seems soooo "stuffy" inside.

5. I have never seen Lights! Motors! Action!

6. I LOVE the purchase with purchase deals at the different stores.

7. I actually prefer to watch Wishes from the Poly beach instead of Main Street.

I cry when I watch Disney commercials, which is weird because I don't cry at anything else, not even really emotional things that happen to me. That function is only triggered by disney commercials.

Related - I recently spent 2 hours watching kids getting surprised with a trip to disney and disney world proposals and cried through the whole thing. I think it was a release over needing to cry over something else, but as I said, I just can't.

I pour over menus and Disney Res site to find the best reservations possible and change them constantly. I have what I'm going to eat picked out weeks before I even get there.

Some of the best memories (and food) I have ever had have been at Disney World and I've been to 30 countries.

I wish I were there almost every day even though I'm perfectly happy where I am!
Can't wait to move! Time for an AP soon
