Just Back

We got Back Tuesday 10/11 and had the most special trip.

we came over for 2 weeks from the 09/25. we had a 2 week ticket to all the parks (wdw,universal and seaworld) and had an absolute blast, my now fiance was worried about all the walking but as soon as she got to the world she completly forgot about it and i didnt hear a word out of her for the duration even though her feet were in agony!!!

Couple of dissapointments in relation to WDW mind with it being our first ever 2 week vacation together since being together and my ladys first trip to WDW, i wanted some really special photos, we took around 50 photopass pics in a variety of locations in all the parks, thinking they knew the best angles,lighting etc but the photographers didnt seem to have a clue (with the exception of a few)

All the pics either had no scenary, bad lighting, shadows covering our faces, for example we had a pic taken to the right of the castle near the rose garden and the lady photographer zoomed right in on us....and u couldnt even see the castle!? !?!? surely the point in that location is the stunning view of the castle.

Thankfully the photographers also took pics on our own camera at the same time and some of these turned out better?!?!?!?!!!!

Queue times were brilliant, with us riding the likes of tower of terror 7 times!!!! i did pull a muscle or bruse a rib on rock n roller coaster as i dont think my restraint was clicked down enough so i was a bit worried about going back on that after that happened.

It seemed to get busier and busier the closer we got to going home i imagine this was due to MNSSHP.

Food in the park was a little frustrating at times, i agree with another post in that the healthy options on offer is quite appalling really (wether this is a uk point of view an this is the norm in the usa i dont know) but everything either had chips or fries...you can offer tasty quick service food thats healthy! i think disney need to move with the times and maybe even make a statement by increasing their offerings.

Im not sure they get enough credit as well but the staff in some of the shops were superb, so friendly and dont get enough credit. Specifically the world of Disney store in downtown disney had some lovely older ladies working there who seemed genuinely interested in each and every person they spoke to

On a positive note i asked my good lady of 3 years to marry me and she said YES!!!!!!!!!! wahoooooooooo i was going to ask in MK but ended up wimping out of it because of the amount of people around, and i opted for a quiet restaurant setting outside of WDW just the 2 of us, it was really really special and something ill never forget.

As for the posts saying Disney is going down hill.....the world is going through some really really difficult times. Disney like anyone else will be trying to remain profitable with the average customer spending less. Our whole experience in what seems to be off season was fantastic! its my 3rd visit to WDW and i felt the same buzz as when i last went 6 years previously....although i love the parks i couldnt go every year, i think although kids adore it they need to see and experience the world because i know when i was younger id get bored of seeing the same things!

I hope anyone going in the next few weeks has a really great time

OP, congratulations on your engagement! We, too, just returned from our vacation on 10/11, and we also had a fantastic time, although we were only there for the weekend. As we usually go to WDW in August, we found both the temperature and crowd level quite pleasing. I think perhaps you felt the crowds were larger over the last weekend because Monday 10/10 was a public holiday for much of the Northeast AND because the weekend of 10/7 to 10./11 is a traditional mid-semester break for many US colleges and Universities. ANyhow, I am glad you enjoyed your vacation, and wish you and your fiancee a wonderful wedding and best wishes for a long and happy life together
