I don't like pre-shows at all. It's a waste of time. Just put me on the freakin' ride already! Test Track is horrible for this. Yes. I know they accidentally pushed the crash test button. Again. There should be a line for those who have already seen the pre-show 43,208,288 times. Heck, I'll carry a certification card that says I have already seen it. I'll even pay $10 more a day just to not have to sit through another stupid pre-show.

The worst is Universal's Twister. A pre-pre-show, a pre-show and then an anticlimactic show. It takes 3 days to get through it.

Oh my GOSH...TWISTER!! I went to Universal for the first time in Jan. '11. I was so confused by that whole attraction. I didn't know what it was about and I was lost as to why we sat through a show, another show and yet another show. Twister was popular AGES ago....time to move that attraction out!

I've got two to add here.

1.) More of a rant here, but I hate it when people are geographically impaired. For example, when I was making my last trip, several of my co-workers were checking to see when it was I was leaving for Disneyland. My response: "Uhm, never (yet). I AM going to Disney WORLD, though." Them: "Whatever, same place." Even funnier is an old friend of mine from Iowa was telling me a story about some guy who was doing some protesting in Disney World in Anaheim. THAT, I knew was a lie but corrected her very quickly.

2.) I don't know where to rank this but you all be the judge. There are two Disney songs that have officially brought me to tears, mainly for the composition and and how moving and beautiful they are. "Beauty and the Beast" from the film of the same name and "I See the Light" from Tangled. True tear-jerkers.... CURSE YOU ALAN MENKEN!!!!!!!!

1. I have routinely forced my DW to take off from work to meet me at Disney. We live in Ohio and she is a schoolteacher. Sorry kids Mrs. H needed a mental health extended weekend.

2. If the Philharmagic and Winnie the Pooh ride weren't in fantasyland. I'd never walk through that area.

3. I sit on parade routes and giggle at the adults having a meltdown. Seriously, your kid is tired and no they don't know how much you paid for this trip. They're kids it's free and magical. Go back to your hotel and chill.

4. I have fallen to the ground while walking on the tiger trek. I laughed and so did others.

5. I have and will continue to tear up when watching fireworks. There's something so right about that castle, the music, and the moment. I'm a 10-year veteran police officer and I am not ashamed to admit my soft side.

Dee

i don't think of winnie the pooh or the muppets as disney. winnie the pooh is like a step child and the muppets will always be jim henson to me...squatters on disney property.

i've only been in the little houses in toon town once (my kids were bored to death so we didn't do it again) we only went back over there for goofy's barnstormer and the princess meet and greet hall. so loosing it isn't that big a deal to me.

i don't get the whole circus thing with the new expansion. i like disney because it moved away from being like a circus. the dinoland in animal kingdom is already to much like that. i like that disney moved away from that feel before (yes i'm old enough to have gone in the days when you could only ride, for instance, pirates once unless you bought more tickets) i like having one card that says do what you want as many times as you want.

i've been to disney probably 30 times since 1972 and have never had a dole whip but i do remember when they had orange juice in those little plastic oranges.

and i really need to know why is it that nestle's hot chocolate only tastes good when you're at the after hours christmas party in mk and not when you make it at home?

We need to emphasize the fun we had that they never got to... and only because we're old. We got to swim in Bay Lake, we enjoyed River Country, we rode Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea! We saw the trolly or rode it. And we got to ride the Skyway from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland!!

And when I'm in the parks.... I'm pretty sure that my grey hairs turn black and my wrinkles smooth out!!
