I hate Ariel and I might have to "accidentally" scratch my dd4 DVD so she can't watch that little tart again. Phew. I feel better.

- I love the corny jokes on The Jungle Cruise

- I've been singing "A Pirates Life for Me" on the Pirates of the Caribbean since I went on the ride in DL as a youngster.

- I hate Rock'N' Roller Coaster, which I find too loud.

- Forget Dole Whip, give me a Mickey Bar.

- I like seeing where the CM are from, and striking up a conversation if I've been there (and I've been to or lived in a lot of places).
ALL OF THESE THINGS, well except for the fact that I adore rock'n'roller coaster...

And I'd have to add that when travelling with others it means I love them VERY VERY much if I actually deign to ride IASW with them. I abhor that ride. Passionately. UGH.

Crashed a Jungle Cruise boat when I was 13. I was allowed to "steer" and when they let me try to bring it into the dock I went too fast a slammed the back of the boat in front of me. Pretty sure the Cast member that let me drive got an earful that night.

I'm a bit ambivalent about IASW. I hate the sickly-sweet song that won't die after going on the ride (LOL!) but I enjoy looking at the national costumes and identifying them before seeing the signs.

I'm loving this thread!

Okay, a few more:

I think Tinkerbell is a movie usurper. It was Peter Pan but everything is about Tink, especially now. There's never anything Peter.

It's been four years but I still have a fastpass for Space Mountain in my wallet. We didn't get round to using it.

I'm terrified of Goofy. He's too tall. I keep thinking he's gonna knock a kid out without even noticing it.

I consider the "Parade of Strollers down Mainstreet at closing" a parade in it's own right.

I call Disneyland Paris "diet Disney". Real Disney to me is Orlando. Even more than Disneyland.

I really love WDW. I've totally bought into "the most magical place on earth".

LOL - Many years ago, my family and I were swimming in the CR pool when Goofy came to visit. My sister (probably 4ish) was so excited she ran over and hugged him. He never saw her and bent down to greet another child smacking her in the head with his snout. She went down hard and freaked out (granted it was mostly little kid shock) but I'll never forget the vision of Goofy "knocking out" my sister. Goofy felt horrible.

My new shameful secret - I'm already planning my 50th bday - it's 2 years away and I'm mostly excited that I'm not taking the kids. This trip is all about me. I feel quite guilty being so selfish - but they'll be 17 & 21 and for once I want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

I bought into it, too! I don't know how anything other than WDW could possibly be considered Disney.

I hate amusement parks but absolutely love DisneyWorld! While I will not go on any "Fast" rides or "Flying" rides, I truly enjoy watching my son and DH go on them like the Mountain rides, roller coasters, etc. Truthfully, I went on the Magic Carpets ride last year and almost cried out of fear (Quite scared of heights!) lol

I don't care for the turkey legs that everyone raves about- they taste yucky.

I hate any kind of amusement parks outside of Orlando... I have this weird fear like the rides just aren't safe. The traveling fairs that visit various towns just look to me like the rides are about to fly off the tracks. I only feel safe going on "big" rides at places like WDW and Seaworld.

I can't stand Alice in Wonderland. Spoiled brat should have stayed where she was told.

You know occasionally a DVD gets dropped on the floor and is accidentally stepped on and broken. Tragic, really...

I know! Right? I keep trying to get her to watch ANY other princess but NADA! I could live with the hoarding but the girl went and changed 50% of her body over some guy who's name she didn't know! And then just shows up! (Isn't that the plot to Single White Female?)

LOL! I'm gonna show my age now but I had Mary Poppins on VHS as a kid and I played it so often my dad threatened to record over it. I was so scared he would, I hid the video under a pile of toys. Unfortunately, the weight of the toys broke the tape anyway!
