I've never understood why many prefer Disney's magical express and Disney transportation over renting a car (outside of saving $). Renting a car in Orlando is affordable and easy and driving around WDW is much quicker.

I have hated "Oh, Canada!" ever since the first time I was forced on it as a kid. I have always said that I would never force my kid on that. I also don't do Hall of Presidents.

This depends, though, on the size of your party (thus, size & cost of rental vehicle) and time of year. During high crowd times, you can spend a lot of time stopped in traffic, which is an easy place for me to lose my patience.

Yes this. I never stayed for it but did this last trip last week because of the good reviews and was hugely disappointed. Very boring.

Well, for me, saving money is a pretty big reason. But there's also the fact that I always go solo, and I don't like driving unfamilar roads, especially by myself. (It's not a safety issue; it's just that I have to watch the road as well as watch for the signs that tell me where I need to go.) Also, I like to stay at the parks until they close, which means I might be kind of tired, which definitely is not a good mix with driving. And with Magical Express there's the added perk of not having to wait for my luggage at baggage claim.

How long ago was that, though? They changed the movie in 2007 so that it now features Martin Short. I actually saw it twice in one trip that year, which I'd never done before.

Agreed. The first time I saw 'Oh, Canada' was my last. I always felt Circle Vision was a bad idea in this park. You've just walked miles around the vastness of Epcot, and then you must stand, and watch this film... REALLY?

I've seen it once since then. Still not my cup of tea. Although, in all fairness, I'm sure there are thing I love that others hate, also

School Bread from Norway in Epcot.
It is dry, except for the custard in the middle.

Keep walking to France, then have at it

Haha, seriously! It's in such a cool place, too. Not the dark moldy theater, but the fountain! It could be made into something so much better :/
