Ride or eat?

If you HAD to choose riding through WDW, or eating through WDW, what would you pick? I'd pick eating.

Can I have both? Ideally I'd do everything commando-style first, then go back and have some nice TS meals while hitting the highlights.

Definitely depends on the park. I'd eat my way through EPCOT...ride my way through MK (more often than not) and split the time at DHS. Could probably also do both at DAK and still have time for a nap!

Riding. Not even close. If I want to go on a culinary adventure to the exclusion of most other activities, WDW wouldn't even make my Top 50 places to go on vacation. If you wanted to eat your way through a vacation, wouldn't you rather go to: Napa Valley; San Francisco; Chicago; New Orleans; New York; Portland (both OR and ME); Boston; Charleston; Memphis; Toronto; Montreal; Vancouver; London; Paris, Burgundy; Provence; Rome; Florence; Bologna; and we haven't even gotten to Africa, Asia or Oceania. Seriously. If I am going to spend a week concentrating on food, it ain't going to be in Central Florida. This Board is very useful in helping people plan to make the best of a bad (or mediocre) situation. But let's not kid ourselves into thinking that WDW presents unlimited options of culinary greatness.

We plan our trips around the food, but we do that regardless of where we vacation. We've been to WDW so many times that we usually only ride 2 or 3 rides a day now. I still enjoy most of them, but my DH wouldn't go for the rides alone. We go to WDW, because it's close, we can be entertained, & eat nice meals w/o needing a car. If it ever comes to a point that we can't get a great meal, we probably won't return. For now, the signature restaurants work for us. The provided transportation is also a major draw.

While I do enjoy eating at WDW, if I could only choose one, I'd pick riding. The rides and shows (and characters) are what set WDW apart from other places.

10 years ago?

definitely eat...post DDP....tough call.

disney not really a "ride place"...it was always more the scenery, diversions, details...and yes the food was a big part of that.

nowadays?

RIding. While I do enjoy vacations focused on food, WDW does not offer it.
