I don't get making ADRs for a meal at 3:30 etc. what meal is that lol. I would still need lunch, still be hungry later or maybe its just me! I cant go long periods without eating then eat a large meal at the hottest part of the day. If an eating place did not have the time to suit I wouldn't go. I prefer 3 equal spaced meals a day, breakfast lunch and dinner at reasonable times.

Now I hear people line up from 9:00 at BOG for lunch? Waiting for hours. Now with due respect we haven't been yet but is it really that good?

Dole whip: pineapple in ice cream form just seems gross to me.

Turkey legs: haven't had one because they look greasy gross and, yes pink, although now I know what that's from.

The obsession with food at WDW! I've never seen so many people talk about the food in reference to a vacation. I've never once on had a $30+ per person meal every single day on vacation. Why must I do that at Disney world? And the 180 day advanced reservation just to eat? That's crazy. I've done it, of course, to eat in the couple of places I wanted but I think it's nuts to plan a meal 6 months in advance! We do mostly quick service and snacks. No dining plan here. I can't fathom or justify spending that much $$ on food.

First of all what is Duffy? AK was a let down. I fell asleep during the Nemo show at AK, won't do that again ever. Indiana Jones at DHS was also boring.

You read my mind. Only way we do the DP is if it is "free". ADRs drive me crazy and we only make one per trip.

I don't get dole whips, and I love ice cream. Never understood why peter pan is so long of line... Am I the only one who don't get the rides in Mexico and Norway? They seem very boring to me. I am sure I have a bigger list.

For some reason, I just love the mexican boat ride. I have no idea why either.... maybe because it's just a relaxing place to cool off and then you come onto the mexican scene (which is really the people eating at the restaurant) ... and the little downtown market before you get to the boat ride. I love it all.

Then again, I've never been to Mexico, it's the closest I'll ever get.


Me, haven't been since 2005, so I'm still in disney "awe".... over everything. I guess, I wasn't impressed w/ Epcot's illuminations. Much rather do wishes, or fantasmic.

AK, we'll be there for 9days an only plan on going there one day. I did like the tree of life and the show inside it. Also liked Lion King and our son adored the Bone Yard. He won 2 turtles at the games there and had them for years!

For me, it's Test Track.

You probably encountered more daring and dangerous driving maneuvers getting into your parking spot at Epcot and definitely in driving down I-4 than you do on this ride.

Do people seriously ride in a car for hours to get to a park to wait in line for over an hour to ride in a car?

Wife and I agree that Soarin was not all that it was cracked up to be. In AK, we usually do Flametree but this time around decided to try Anandapur/Yak &Yeti CS. Shoulda stuck with BBQ.....

Turkey legs Ew. Pink "hammy" looking turkey blech! My DDs love them tho so I do get them for them...but I have to look away as they are eating.

Oh and Fantasmic...? We saw it once and with a Fantasmic package because otherwise, ya know, you have to line up like 15 hours in advance. For what? I mean yeah it was cute but I don't get the hype at all. Nor do I get the benefit of the package...we were last row in the very far right.. that was our "special seating" Meh.
