Disney secrets

Hi all.

I don't like roller coasters! No way. When I tell people I'm going to Disney, those who've never been say "If you don't like roller coasters, what do you do at Disney World?" (Can't imagine.)

My other Disney secret is that I just didn't get into into Hollywood Studios. It seemed to lack a good layout, and the tone just felt sort of non-Disney to me. The Magic Kingdom seems to be all about childhood dreams, EPCOT about the future (or at this point, sort of a retro version of the future) and the global village, and of course, Animal Kingdom is about animals and nature, but the Studios seemed to just be about unfocused entertainment.

But! If you're way into Hollywood Studios, to each his or her own. Go enjoy yourself! And rest assured, I'm going to give Studios another try the next time I'm there. Who knows? Maybe this time I'll "get it."

Before I sign off, I gotta throw in that I love about everything else at Disney!

Ok here goes....

I think Illuminations is BORING
I rode EE 20 something times on EMH my last trip......(joked with the cast members and asked if there was a 12 step program for this ride)
I dont get what the big deal is about POTC
Dole whips make me sick
Not a fan of DHS and have never seen the Motorcars parade!

Love this thread!

I have never sat and watched a parade

I have never seen the Indiana Jones Stunt Show or the Lights, Motor Action show at DHS - we tend to leave that park shortly after arriving

DH and I don't like Fantasmic

We have never been to a rope drop (its always on the list for each trip)

I have never been to Tom Sawyers Island

I have never been on Kali River Rapids

I just don't "get" Fantasmic - we waited one and a half hours to see it - what a waste - yet I could see Illuminations every night and not get bored - I love the music, symbolism and never fail to get "teary" each time. Each to their own!!

Oh- and Kat3668- I totally agree about Illuminations, I think that the globe is a total snooze. I liked the previous version of Illuminations much better- there were more fireworks!

Mine is that I am stalking Donald Duck. My goal is to get my picture with him in every costume he wears. Got him in Mexico on this past trip. I often wonder if he has caught on yet.....

My shameful secret is that I do not like the parades or Illuminations at Epcot

I've never seen the fireworks from the hub or main street...so I've never seen Tink or the light shows...and I'm ok with that!

I find Fantasmic to be annoying.

We always watch Illuminations...but I don't remember that much because I've always been toasted.

I hate parades.

Disneyland is my favorite park, and Magic Kingdom my least. In fact, I would be ok going to WDW and not going to Magic Kingdom.

I don't like Dole Whips...and Turkey Legs freak me out.

Turkey legs freak me out too (tried one once and had to get a napkin to politely spit it out--if there's such a polite way)

As much as I love all things Disney, last trip it wasn't until the 4th day that I made it to a park (I love the Disney resorts a lot)

Tower of Terror scares me (I did it twice but will go on R & R or EE 100 times in a row before I ever get on that freefall again)

I fell asleep during Festival of the Lion King. I just couldn't stay awake- it bored me to tears.
