This is a great thread! Now keep in mind as you read my dirty disney secrets that I live in Orlando, DH is a CM and I'm former CM and we go to the parks A LOT!!!!

I've never ridden TOT, EE, Rockin' Roller Coaster, or Mission Space and I probably will never ride them because I'm a giant chicken!

However I can't miss Dinosaur and usually ride it twice because I LOVE IT!

The sight and smell of turkey legs make me gag

I cry every single time I watch Wishes!

I've never spent the day at any of the parks by myself or even ridden a ride by myself but I would like to.

I still miss the old Illuminations and usually won't stick around for the new one.

I think that's it for now

I forget where I found this (but it was on the DIS), but if you scroll down you will find it:

http://www.wdisneyw.co.uk/sounds.html

enjoy!!

Right click, 'Save as' and save to somewhere on your computer. Then in Control Panel, choose Sounds and Audio Devices, then click on the Sounds tab. In Program sounds scroll down to Windows Start (that's what I have) and browse to the file just downloaded. You are good to go.

Feel free to PM me if you need further assistance.

Oh, I have to participate in this thread.

*I hate the Matterhorn, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain. That hour I spent in line to ride each of them? I want it back!

*I don't 'get' pin trading at all.

*I miss original EPCOT Center, when Future World was all science and no thrill rides.

*I miss the Monorail Cafe at the DL Hotel & the monorail stop upstairs.

I'm sure I'll think of more later, I've got post-DL brain today.

Ok...here are mine:

*I love the Carousel of Progress.
*The Hall of Presidents is where I go for a nap.
*I'm a touring commando - my family is not always thrilled with this for some reason.....
*I have the most fun at WDW with my brother and sister.
*I, too, am not a huge fan of kids, but I can't wait to take my niece in July.
*I agree with BaciBecky - Tink is a little too sexy these days.
*I listen to MouseWorld radio nearly all day at work.

I always found that the monorail smelled odd and one day it came to me - it smells like used Band-Aid!

Go to live365.com and search for "disney." The two I listen to are Mouseworld Radio and WDWLive radio. All Disney all the time Mostly songs from movies, the rides and the loops around the parts, but the other day the monorail "spiel" was on - fabulous!

I am completely with you on the "Grown-up Only Day" for WDW. My husband keeps saying that he would pay extra for that sort of experience.

I'm a novice to the boards and I'm loving this thread. I went on my first trip to WDW (since 1975) during Halloween in 2007. My friend was going to wait for the Boo To You parade, but I decided to skip it and ride Splash Mountain five times. However, I caught part of the parade when I was walking back and was completely in awe. I hate parades, but this one was freakin' awesome. So, I caught it the second time that night AND then somehow got us tickets to MNSSHP later that week just for the Boo To You parades. This year I have planned two nights at MNSSHP (along with three nights of HHN).

My second shameful secret is that I recently paid several hundred bucks for a hitchhiking ghost collector's edition sculpture. I'm addicted to Haunted Mansion too. I have to be the biggest dork in the history of forever. And did I mention that I'm 40?
