You get more for your money by riding through. We go often and most often takes snacks then eat at home.

In the past I have gone for riding, this year I am going for EATING!!! Seeing my kids going on rides, me characters, and all will be fun, but what I am most looking forward to is eating the meals.

There are many places in the world that offer better food, but there is nothing like taking the kids to Disney AND being able to eat good food.

If I were going to a city to eat I would have to leave my kids at home.

Jeez, buzzkill much? To be honest, none of the rides anywhere compare to the thrill of doing a triple digit wheelie on my motorcycle, but seems a bit off topic fo a Disney forum.

Ummm. You asked the question. My response is a direct response to that question and is not in any sense "off topic". If "Ride" is not an acceptable answer to your binary question, then why ask the question? And if "Ride" is an acceptable answer, wouldn't you want to know why? Pakey and I have both expressed the view that WDW is not the best place for us to enjoy a culinary adventure. Sorry if that doesn't fit within your constraints of acceptable discourse on a Disney chat board.

I say rides, or really the whole experience with shows, etc. I love food as much as the next person, but I'm not sure I have had a meal at WDW that has topped some of the best meals I have had in Atlanta. This is based in two trips in the last 4 years. I'm going to California Grill tonight so we'll see if I change my mind.

Exactly what I would do! Especially through the F&W!

I always do both extremely well!

DHS - Morning, small coffee only. I ride Tower of Terror and then Aerosmith's Rocking Roller Coaster, 30 minutes after those two I can eat whatever I want and do the rest!

MK - I can ride and eat without worry till dinner around 8-8:30 pm

AK - Small Coffee - I then face the Yeti and Dinosaur, and then I can eat and do the rest!

Epcot - I snack my way up and down without issue since I no longer do the hard core Mission Space (Once was enough)


And though WDW may not be the culinary mecca of my dreams (it is 4 theme parks), there's more than enough there food/snack/restaurant wise to keep both my interest and my wallet wide open!

Definately eating! I would much rather eat mediocre food than eat in a different country.

MK I would ride but at EPCOT I would eat. HS I also would probably ride and watch shows.
