Disagree with numbers 2 and 20. The princess meal at Norway is one our my family's favorites! We have always had great character interactions, sorry you didn't have the same experience. I also found the Beach Club lacking in the grocery department.

I do love number 27, and have done that very thing! Sent my 21 year old nephew off to get fast passes while the rest of us finished our meal. That kind of became a thing that trip--he would finish eating and then go grab fast passes for everyone while we lingered over our food a bit.

Aren't you a barrel of fun! Thanks to the poster because even though I knew a lot of this I found it fun to read and not preachy at all.

The lovely ladies at the desk where you can pick up your ride picture were able to find the rover number by the picture and retrieve his toy within 10 minutes! We almost NEVER purchase the ride pictures--but I now have a new appreciation for them!

Thank you for your post!
Yes, what I didn't mention was that the people behind desk helped us find the backpack based upon the photo! All was well.

Easy. My experiences of those two things haven't been the same. Doesn't make them wrong, just means I didn't have the same experiences. As I stated, I was sorry they didn't have the same experience at the Princess meal that we have had.

I understand completely. We felt rushed and it was overpriced. Glad you had a good time.

lol Great Post. I really want to stay at the Boardwalk now.

#28!! One of my pet peeves. That and flash photography on dark rides. I'll have to (gently) try the toe stepping thing. -Amanda

Great and humorous list!

I'm amazed on the interwebz there was only 1 troll on this 8 page (and counting) thread, but that speaks to the general civility of this message board.

I've been going to WDW since '72. Sometimes I feel like one of those ex-pats in another country... hollow-eyed and weary and with an attitude of "seen it all, oh wow here comes a fresh-faced innocent". Something like this that makes me smile, so I sincerely thank the OP. Well done!

That was funny! Thanks for taking the time to do it.

I LOVE Universal. What they did at HP is truly amazing. Great tips for both places, which most people do see.
