Duffy

I am currently living in Japan and the Duffy thing is HUGE here. The girls will carry them all over the park with them facing outward to show off who has the biggest, best dressed Duffy. Even more cool if you have a guy with you and they carry it all over the park.

Dolewhips
Duffy
The NEW Test Track
Zebra Domes
Schoolbread (very underwhelming)
The Lego Store
Le Cellier (I have had better steaks locally and in travling around the nation, especially in the South)

A couple of people have mentioned Pick a Pearl. I have not heard of this. Where is this underwhelming and no doubt overpriced experience located so I can add it to my list of things to try and then rate out of ten ( I am building a list for a rainy day based on this thread lol )

Festival of the Lion King. I don't get it. I see people on here all the time say how they like it so much more than Finding Nemo and that is just unfathomable to me. FOTLK was boring and had no plot. Only seen it once and never plan on seeing it again.

There is a whole thread about it here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1520941

I haven't been either, but I've been reading through some of this thread and what I gather is there are three different location. The one at DTD is super over-priced and it sucks, and the one in Japan (EPCOT) is really really nice and they make an 'experience' of the whole thing. When we go, I plan on at least checking the Japan one out.

Starring Rolls cupcakes. They were okay, but nothing spectacular IMO.

I also don't understand the obession with the Dole Whips. Don't get me wrong, it looks yummy and I love fresh pineapple, but I guess I am not a fan of it in soft serve style. I tried it and I really wanted to love it.

I wouldn't say a lot of people rave about this "ride" but I have seen people say they enjoyed it and I just DO NOT understand - Stitches Great Escape! It was thee biggest waste of time ever we thought. The seats were horrible also!

BBB. It just seems so impractical to get all dolled up in fru-fru dresses and fancy hairstyles for a day at the park.
Fantasmic.....I was expecting to be completely blown away by it after waiting so long for it and fighting the crowds....it was just kind meh and I havent been back.
Toy Story Mania....It was a fun ride, but I dont see waiting 2 hours for it...it wasnt any more special than any other ride

One can only hope it replaces 'Hello Kitty' (don't get me started on that...)

I have to agree with the BBB hairdo. They do something similar at the Mainstreet Barber Shop where they took their hair and put it up into a super tight bun and put so much hairspray or whatever into it that it made it look greasy and then they poured glitter or fake jewels all over it. The end result looked awful IMO. I guess if the girls like it that's great.

I had a Dole Whip once and I can hardly remember it so I can't say I get the hype. And I'm a huge sweets and ice cream lover.

I am surprised at the number of people who didn't care for Fantasmic. I would take it over Wishes or Illuminations any day.

It is a pretty awful attraction. The original version though "Alien Encounter" was incredible. So scary and intense. And apparently too much so as they switched it over to Stitches Great Escape. Despite the many warnings parents continued to bring little kids on the Alien version and I can imagine as intense as it was for an adult it must have been absolutely terrifying for a young child. We saw many an inconsolable kid outside that attraction. Such a bummer cause that was a favorite for me.

Alien Encounter was AWESOME!!! We also enjoyed the darker Countdown to Extinction, even though we like the ride as it is now.

My sandwich tasted like plastic and 2 of my kids didn't like the grilled cheese. How do you mess up grilled cheese?
