I agree. I feel bad for them.

I can't even imagine what it must be like to plan a Disney vacation now. We started going in 1985, when there was only MK, EPCOT and Disney Village. Everyone stayed offsite, there was only Poly, CR, Disney Inn and FW. So we have been able to add each new park, hotel, etc. as they happened so it's never been overwhelming. To think that folks are planning their first trip now is incomprehensible, how do you figure it all out if you haven't seen it.

I'm helping a friend at work and I've been mindful to tell her that you have to take HIGHWAYS between theme parks, that it's similar to visiting New York and every theme park is a different borough, etc. I'm shocked that folks feel okay with a 4 day vacation because that's all they need when they haven't seen it yet.

I also feel bad for folks who come on here for their first trip and think they have to do every little "secret" that long timers have figured out. Honestly, that has ruined a lot of those little things like the scuba diver at Coral Reef, etc. I wish every newbie understood they need to read and research, not just jump on here and ask random questions that cause more questions, more threads, more "will I like...".

Yes, I guess I sound holier than thou, that's not my point. I love answering questions from people who know what they're asking. I hate seeing questions from people who have no idea, I won't touch those threads other than to tell them to go away and research. Folks like Robo, and Cheshire Figment, etc. have so much more patience than I and are truly DISboard saints!
