It's not WHAT is being eaten to make the connection, but rather HOW it is being eaten.. and maybe I shouldn't have used cannibals.. but referenced Zombies instead.

For me, it's Dole Whips. I love pineapple and was so excited to try it after reading all the rave reviews. So gross! It was a complete *** moment when I tasted it. I dumped most of it in the trash.

Ok, mine is that store in Japan. It's a bunch of Anime junk, clothes no one would wear, and snacks made from lots of nasty things. Yet, my DW and DD's spend hours in there. And don't even get me started on Pick a Pearl, an oyster tank and people yelling and banging on drums for some reason, aye yi yi let me out of here

The great part of this is that no one, and I mean no one, *has* to even eat any meat. *But* the ones that love one, or all of them, can have all they want. At least, to me, the servers have always been very attentive, and considerate. Some have posted on other threads that they never came around. Wasn't our experience.

Disney dining plan. Unless it is free we just cannot get it to add up. Plus we don't want to dine in Disney all the time. Like to eat in places outside like red lobster, olive garden etc as well as disney.

HBD's Grapefruit Cake.
I am with you on this one. I was completely underwhelmed by that entire meal. Absolutely nothing about it felt like it should be worth 2TS credits.

I also was not a Dole Whip fan. I can see how this happens though. Something gets so much attention that when you finally do get to try it, it can't possibly live up to the hype.

I just had to at your comment about pick a pearl. It's been a tradition where my girls always get a new pearl when we go but I just can't stand the yelling and banging and more so the people standing around to watch. That being said, we've go a nice colection of colorful pearls at home.

I too don't get the dole whip and turkey leg. Just the smell of the turkey turns my stomach

grafefruit cake is another one that I didn't like at all and all the icing on the cupcakes @ Staring roll or something like that.

50sPT- I just don't want to be messed with while I eat, just my opinion.
Spaceship Earth- I know It's crazy! But I just don't like it.
Animal Kingdom
and
Mainly- PARADES.
I just don't understand why people wait around for them to see 10 seconds of a character going by on a float. I take this time to ride attractions or shop.

I do love the food and decor, but I agree with you there. Sometimes it can get a little awkward!

I guess I expected it to be more of an experience. Many cities have outdoor dining and shopping areas but there are neat little pockets of entertainment that make it enjoyable; a talented guy singing with an acoustic guitar, the street kids who perform a break dance routine, a fountain that is choreographed to music. Something less contrived and grand than the parks, more bohemian if you will (except for a choreographed fountain - that's pretty contrived )

I don't care for DTD myself but in it's defense it used to be a bit more with all the clubs. It seems like they're slowly reviving it with Splitsville and tentative plans for other things.
