Whispering Canyon Cafe - We knew it would be loud but didnt know it would be that annoying.

Chef Mickey's - Character interaction felt rushed. Mickey was in such a hurry forgot the "y" in his signature.

Walking into Magic Kingdom and seeing the castle for the first time thinking wow its not as big as it looks on tv!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Oh I see. I assume there is a 'Le Cellier' & 'BOG' marathon weekend lol. I must admit when they previewed us FantasyLand when we were there last October I loved the Rose you took back to the table that the servers used to identify you and me and DW said oh yes we get that sounds fun and the restaurant was beautiful. But I still would not wait in line for hours for it. I am a whimp! I admire people that do though like those that camp in tents outside a film premiere etc. shows passion.

I did wait in line for the new Star Wars film Phantom menace when it was released back in 1999. Ok so I was disappointed by the film being a hard core Star Wars fan but what a rush lining up with other Star Wars film fans such an experience in itself! I am Disabled now so thats out.... :-) maybe I am just jealous lol.

I love diversity and I love that Disney offers us that so next time I am wheeling through and see people lining up for BOG I will think good for you! You dine what time you like when you like thats why we all come here. We love Disney! You offer so much to so many. Omg what did I have for breakfast? What am I running for Prime Minster lol.

I don't like the Poly.
Yes, it is nice and has spacious rooms, but I don't get it.

When I saw it first back in 2008, I thought there is a construction on the roof (those wooden poles on one building).

I don't want to stay there, but it's a matter of taste.


And I don't like Pin Trading.


There is something for everyone at Disney!

The Poly was really hard to get around from a disability point of view! Outside it was sort of cobbled on the ground and as I have a rollator to help me walk I thought I was on space mountain without a fast pass lol. A right bone shaker!

We stayed CL at Poly and while it was awesome we didn't love the resort.

Dole whips! I can't stand that pineapple soft serve. What I do like is a vanilla dole whip float. Yummm it's vanilla soft serve with fresh pineapple juice.

Fantasmic! It's just ok. Not BAD but we don't need to do it every trip.

LeCellier cheddar cheese soup. Holy Salt Lick Batman! Way too salty and bacony for my taste. Yes I know, "too bacony" isn't possible, well for me it is lol.

Polynesian - We stayed there in 1996 after a friend raved about it and we didn't like it. It seemed dark and musty. I prefer something more bright like GF or BC or BW.

For us, breakfast at WDW is extremely underwhelming. In general breakfast at WDW is extremely overpriced, but the character breakfasts are ridiculous.

Something like a bowl of cereal in my room, a banana and cup of coffee as I leave the room takes me less time and gives me more time in the park for the meet and greets which is better character interaction anyway.

Character meals are overpriced to begin with, but the breakfasts are just insane.

Agreed. We go to walmart get cereal, juice and milk etc and keep it in the fridge. Have breakfast in our room and take more time and money to the parks! :-)
