Oh, and to me, it will always be Epcot CENTER and Disney-MGM Studios. I guess the shameful part of that is how irrationally I cling to those names from the past.

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone here ever been down Summit Plummet? I'm hoping to add that to my "shameful secret" list in October. I've seen a couple of videos on YouTube and it looks more thrilling than even Tower Of Terror, Mission Space, etc.

I went on Summit Plummit during my first trip to Walt Disny World! I was about 7 or so and I LOVED it! Has got to be one of fastest water slides I've ever been on! Don't go if your afraid of heights but it sounds like you won't have a problem!

Oh I do have one more shameful secret now that you mention it!

*I think Disney Pirates are HOT!*

Well, I do have a bit of a fear of heights, but I confront it often with rollercoasters and thrilling rides.

Where in NC are you from? I grew up in Durham and lived in Charlotte (3 years) and Boone (6 years). I do miss home.

My Disney secrets:

I don't get pin trading at all and kind of hate that it's taken over WDW

Snow White and Minnie Mouse's voices are like nails on a chalkboard

I don't like the giant Sorcerer's Hat at 'HS'...it's MGM and the icon is the Earful Tower people!! (I'm such a luddite)

If I never ride Kali River Rapids again it'll be too soon. I'm inevitably the most soaked on the raft. Never again.

I tear up at most every Disney commercial. That's how I got to go to WDW every year in high school...I'd get my mom and sister all teary and before we knew it we were planning another trip.

I would never stay at another value resort...camping at FW is a way better value for me.

I own Bambi, Dumbo, and Fox and the Hound but will NEVER watch them because they make me so sad.

I don't like Disney's computer graphic animation unless it's Pixar. Bring back the cell animation!

My sister and I send emails that say "Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas" and nothing else just to brighten each others day.

That's cool, I'm from a small town called Wilkes County, about an hour away from Charlotte! How cool is that?! It's also a little weird, I can't wait to get out of here! I've lived here all my life (Not much of a small town girl and Wilkes County is about as small town as it gets! LOL)

I have another confession!

*I can't watch Lilo and Stitch without crying my eyes out. I was a lot like Lilo when I was younger and still am to some degree. I'm defeanlty an oddball!*

This thread is a lot of fun.

Here goes...

- I use the "Hall of Presidents" and "Carousel of Progress" to catch mid-day naps
- I have never been to a Disney water park
- What is a rope drop?
- I felt really guilty using Disney Transportation when I stayed off-site

It's the park opening. There is usually a big event and countdown before they "drop the rope" to officially open (it's actually more of a "follow the rope" event). I've only seen the ones at Epcot and Magic Kingdom (from inside the park so I didn't get the full effect).

Should a 40 y/o male be this happy about purchasing MNSSHP tickets? I am going two nights also on 10/28 and 10/30 - one with family and one solo!
