Wheres your favorite place in WDW?

i was just thinking about how much i love being on Main Street USA in MK, for me theres no feeling like it. I feel so happy and so at home there, i could just walk up and down all day and never EVER get bored.

So i was wondering wheres your favorite place in Walt Disney World?

Cool

Hi Jimmy

My favorite place at WDW is the Beach Club Villas, because it offers me access to my favorite Sand Bottom Pool STORMALONG BAY. Also it is the shortest stroll to the International Gate to EPCOT, and I love dining within the World Showcase, and then watching Illuminations. It takes a few minutes to walk back to the Resort, and the only distraction that possibly prevents me returning directly to my Villa, is Beaches N Creme for ice cream.

Phil

Ak!

I love many locations in WDW but my very favorite place is the aviary on the Pangani Trail in AK.

Oh, tough one. Have to go with the World Showcase, but the Gorilla sanctuary on the Pangani Forest Trail is right there too. Love, love, love the gorillas.

In Italy, along the promenade, there is a small fenced in patch of flowers. Right there. Leaning up against it. Glass of muscato in one hand, arm around a friend or my old ball and chain, watching the glow of Illuminations cascade across the landscape and surrounding people.

Can I cheat and pick a place at DL? I've only been there once, but I remember standing in the entrance to the castle, with people all around me, with tears in my eyes realizing that "Walt stood here". In all the trips I've had, I've never felt closer to the man that Walt was.

We spend a lot of time in Epcot's World Showcase. Val & I love to try wine so you'll likely find us near one of the wine shops. That spot Todd mentioned is a good one. Also a similar one across from Germany.

...and sticking with the drinking theme, LaCava de Tequila in Mexico is a favorite spot if you're with somebody special or with a whole group of special folks.

For just walking around, just about anywhere on World Showcase after dark is nice. Again favoring the Germany/Italy areas - perhaps for the lighting and background?

The Mexican Pavillion at Epcot of course. Brings back lots of memories from home.

I have to say, the top of Main Street, when you see the castle in the distance...especially at nighttime. It reflects all my little girl dreams....

I have way too many to count......but among my top favorites are eating breakfast on the balcony of a savannah room at AKL or AKL Villas on a morning when there are lots of animals out. I also love the Tiger viewing areas in the Pangani Forest Trail-----and any great spot on Main St. in MK from which you can see the the nighttime castle show and then the fireworks

Well my favourite spot is definitely not the Canadian Pavilion in Epcot! I'm with Rosie on Main Street USA at night. I love the lights.
