The Great Movie Ride. Needs updating AND NOW! I like Dole Whip Floats but not the Dole Whip on it's own. Don't understand the popularity of Zebra Domes or the Oreo Bonbons (formerly at Cape May). Le Cellier (overpriced and nothing special) and Illuminations (change it already!!!)

Something less contrived and grand than the parks, more bohemian if you will (except for a choreographed fountain - that's pretty contrived )
Go at night. Last time we were there we encountered living statues, bands/combos/lone guitar players, a major hula hoop contest and an awesome guy who played a didgeridoo! Not sure you can get more bohemian than that!

Ahhhhh! The ol' dangling modifier stikes again! Thanks for the clarification.

This has less to do with the parks than the Disney community in general, but I do not understand any part of the immensely detailed trip reports that people put out. You can tell that people put an enormous amount of time and effort into compiling them, which I did not understand at all until I noticed that these trip reports are some of the most active threads on these boards, so clearly, there's an audience for it -- which I understand even less. Seems to me to be kinda like when you go over to a friend's house and they start showing you all of their vacation photos. Not a fan.

Then again, I don't really get scrapbooking either, and these trip reports could be viewed as a more high tech, social version of that hobby.

Anyway, to each their own, I'm certainly not going to go into that forum and harp on people for participating in it, but I personally do not see the draw.

I feel you! I am an Ohana's nut. Mo meat, mo better! And the servers are hilarious. Direct quote from our waiter to me and two other guys at our table.

"Ok, cousins, we got a lot of food coming, so you need to be ready. Oh, and we have vegetables too, if you want them." He read that table right.

I've been to WDW three times and gone to Ohana's each time. It's a must-do. I don't know the name of the lady who plays the piano and sings -- my wife calls her the Pacific-Rim Charo -- but she is great and adds to an already fun atmosphere.

I love the place and I love the food.

I supposed for those not on DDP, its a good deal if you drink a lot of soda, but it seems like a lot of hassel to lug it around and all that walking to your resort food court just to get a drink.
Depends on where you are staying at the resort. I always get the mug. It just makes sense when you want to spend a day at the pool or an evening roasting marshmallows at the fire pit. I also abuse the darn thing in the morning. I must have about five mugs of coffee just to get out the door, so, for me it works well. I don't actually take it to the parks, and I don't know of anybody who does. In fact, I don't think you can use it in the parks. I may be wrong, but I agree, taking it to a park is more hassle than it would be worth. Anyway, it doesn't work for you, but it works like a champ for us. Different strokes.

HA!

I never had to deal with this with my kids and I think if we had I'd have bought the dress at home. I just can't imagine spending 189.00 on a costume and sparkly hair.

While this might not really be my opinion since I have never ate there but my family does not enjoy Ohana and does not get the hype about it. My family does not enjoy the meat their mainly but they also aren't thrilled about the family style.
