Have her do The Pirate League Empress or Mermaid package! Much more comfortable, TONS of fun and a lot cheaper!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

If I am honest its a small world kind of freaks me out lol.

BBB

Turkey legs

So seeing a girl dressed from the BBB eating a turkey leg on its a small world would have me in therapy for months lol.

Illuminations. It's REALLY boring and it doesn't really make sense.

As for Fantasmic, I think DL's version of Fantasmic is 100x better and I think it's because of the viewing distance. There's no stadium for Fantasmic as at DHS, it's right on the Rivers of America and you're really close to all the action. In DHS, I feel you really need binoculars to see the characters.

Turkey Legs for me as well.. they just look gross and people eating them tend to look like cannibals. (They don't sell these in WDW, but I feel the same way about people who pay $6 for a giant pickle and eat that while walking around)

Don't like downtown Disney - feel it's a waste. If I'm not at a park, I would rather be relaxing at the resort.

Flame suit on.

Almost forgot...50's Prime Time. To be honest, we've never eaten there...we are afraid! I don't think my meek family would be able to enjoy their meal if faced with even the slightest possibility of being force fed or having to stand in the corner. I think my husband would tell someone to *bleep* off and we'd have to leave. Too bad...the decor actually looks like the kitchen his mom used to have! They should have a non-harassment section for weenies like us!!!!
I agree about BBB. The girls just look strange. Straight outta Toddlers and Tiaras. It really creeps me out. Plus, how miserable for the girls!!!

As far as the turkey legs - they gross me out, too. I agree with the slimy, meat dripping and hanging everywhere. I have tried 1 bite and it was like slimy bacon. So gross.

We, OTOH, love Boma (Zebra Domes), Ohana (keep the shrimp coming!), and Illuminations (I could watch it all day, every day...).

And 50's PT - ok food, love the schtick. To each his own.

Geeze what's with all the turkey leg hate? I get everybody has their own tastes and preferences but people are actually offended to see others eating a turkey leg and a few wish they weren't sold at the park? One of you actually gets sick to your stomach watching someone eat them? Really people? Large turkey legs offend your delicate sensibilities that much?

If you see someone eating a turkey leg you could, I don't know, not stare at them and your problem would be solved rather than trying to ban them from the park.

It's a theme park people, not Victoria and Albert's. The main dining experience is a burger and fries not filet mignon and lobster tail. Finger foods are part of the experience. Deal with it.

I agree with all of the BBB sentiments. I don't like Fantasmic as much as everyone else seems to but I still enjoy it. I don't really get Test Track either but I haven't been on the new one, I've only seen videos on YouTube, so maybe that would change my mind. Again, I enjoy Test Track but I don't quite understand why people go crazy for it or why it's as much of a headliner as, say, Mission Space or Splash Mountain or Everest.

1 - Animal Kingdom - I love the attractions, and that they seem to treat the animals with a lot of respect and care, but the theming feels too much like my local zoo (granted, we have a nice zoo). It doesn't have that Disney magic (especially in Dinoland! most of which looks like a town fair!), so I won't go there unless I have the PH option and can go somewhere else late in the day for some "magic." Not sure how they could increase the magic feel, though.

2 - Polynesian resort - awesome location and the grounds are gorgeous, but the rooms are no where near worth the price! I've paid $100 to stay at the WDW Hilton and had a more luxurious experience.

3 - Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story Mania - I just can't get into these.

4 - Tiki Room - I think this one is sustained by nostalgia. I don't remember going to it as a child, so I'm pretty bored by it now. Cute though.

5 - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh - just felt like a bunch of painted cardboard sets. It would be fine if the line wasn't so long.

6 - Mission Space - I still can't believe they got rid of Horizons (my favorite ride) for this one. It made me ill and claustrophobic.

7 - Test track (haven't been on the new one though)

Now if you wanted me to list the things I LOOOVE about Disney, it would be several pages long. I'm actually surprised by those who don't like 50s Prime Time. I had low expectations for the food, but it ended up being really delicious! And I love the stores at Downtown Disney, but I only use them to look up products to buy online for cheaper if I can And Fantasmic always blows me away. Love it!

BBB. I "get" it, but the tight hair and the ones who try to walk around in their costume shoes all day - they just look so uncomfortable. The makeup is not my cup of tea either. I wish they put the kids in a more natural look.

I also agree with the PP about staying on-site. Packing 4 of us in an overpriced hotel room the size of a closet for over a week doesn't seem "magical" to me.

I'm so grateful that people's "must do" things vary so much. Otherwise, it would be so much harder to do the things you love!

I don't get:

- Shopping all day at DTD. We love the AMC and Earl of Sandwich and Raglan Road is excellent. We're looking forward to visiting Splitsville and love to get treats at the Candy Cauldron, but I don't consider shopping recreational.
- Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex. I can visit them at local malls and compared with Disney attractions, the audioanimatronics look cheap and boring.

As for everything else, I may not be thrilled by it, but I understand why others enjoy it/them.

Soarin

It's a fun attraction but I wouldn't wait over 30 minutes for it.

Well I might if I just wanted to be inside out of the sun and had a book to read while I waited, but I've passed on it a couple of times when I didn't want to wait for the FP window or the standby line.

It is not so great that I can't skip it and I just don't get the 'gotta ride it' mindset. Maybe the first time, but not after that.

I use to look at the lines of the Earl of Sandwich and not get it. Its just an overpriced sandwich right? That I have to wait inline for? So for years me & DW resisted thinking we don't get it Then one day me & DW said come on then lets see what we are missing.

On this occasion we are totally converted lol. I get it waiting in line with others. So you can be converted you know... :-)

In fact EOS is one of our favourites!
