Dolewhips
Duffy
The NEW Test Track
Zebra Domes
Schoolbread (very underwhelming)
The Lego Store
Le Cellier (I have had better steaks locally and in travling around the nation, especially in the South)
Canadian steaks are usually pretty good, but you actually have to come here to try them

We LIKE Soarin... but this time we commented on how it need to be updated to HD. I think that would make it better.

Hubby got a turkey leg and said it wasn't all he expected it to be.

We skipped AK this time, and have no regrets.

Waterparks. I just don't think of waterparks when I think of Disney, We never do them.

Parkhoppers. Just a waste of time for us. We pick a park and stay there all day.

ADR... ALL of our ADRs were scratched and turned into new reservations when we arrived. Our party was big, so it was easier for Disney, I guess?

Birthdays: It was my bday on our last trip. It was nice to have random people saying happy bday to me, but there really were no extra perks. My hubby purchased a cake from The Grand Floridian Bakery to have with dinner and it was $60. It wasn't even spectacular.

I miss the old attractions from the 80s. Especially in Epcot. Things just aren't the same anymore.

I start the day off with a ride on SM, move on to Buzz, hop over real quick to HM, or Big Thunder and then it's time for a turkey leg. it just shows to go ya. And, of course, I'm loopy for IASM. And that's really close to Peter Pan and then ... well, you get the idea.
I didn't say we hated the MK, I just said it wasn't my favorite park. Honestly, none of the Disney parks are bad. My boys LOVE meeting certain characters and the look they get in their eye and the smile on their face is priceless. We meet way more of the characters they like at HS and AK than at MK. We also love the shows and parades at HK over the other parks. And walking the worlds at Epcot is sooo fun.

But I do stick by my comment about not liking IASW... sorry!

I'm glad that my list of dislikes isn't long. I'm too busy with two girls running through the parks to have a long list of dislikes. I can add one thing for my list though and that would be the overall price of going. Other than that when I come across something I don't like I skip it and move on to something else. I can say that I wouldn't take my girls to the BBB because of the prices and the easy hairstyles. I've planned to do their hair myself this trip. I love letting them play dress up in the dresses or any costume they'd want to wear there for that matter. It's a magical place and I love letting them be kids and enjoy themselves.

Other than that I do get Duffy (both my girls want one) I am going to try a turkey leg and I love that it's vacation and there are so many different foods to try, you never know what you like until you try it.

The food in general. I'm always amazed that people rave about the food. I mean, I guess Le Cellier is amazing if your idea of a good steak is The Outback or Sizzler. I am convinced that those who think Disney's food is great also think The Olive Garden is Italian food.

Dole Whips. Pineapple is my favorite fruit, but I really just don't get it.

I think is has to do more with what people are given at other parks..

The food at theme parks around here is just awful!!
I would take outback or Olive Garden any day... Over what they have 😝

Disney also offer lots of choices, you wouldn't find in some areas..
I live in the west most my life, finding a good steak was easy..

Now that I live here is MA. I find it VERY hard to find a steak.. And what people claim is a good steak, taste like pork! And is so small I laughed when the brought it out..

However the seafood is the best iv ever had, and would not be able to get on the west coast..

I think tries to offer a little of everything.. And I think they do better the most theme parks..

One of many thing I do get....

Coral Reef:
I get sitting next to the big tanks and looking at the fish why you eat..

But why make the food seafood themed !!

Anyone else find it strange to eat fish why watching fish?

Well said!
it definitely beats anything served at my local cedar fair owned park- in quality and price and sit downs are better than many hotel restaurants.

Also, it's rare that a restaurant is willing to work me to ensure I get a vegetarian meal I'll enjoy. Disney will. I understand that allergic people feel the same.

Wow didn't realise what I had started

And I agree we are all different so we don't all like the same, but some things like CRT it's nice but not the price or hype nice.

Keep them coming I am really enjoying reading it all.

Yes, Angie, you've created a monster. But it was a great idea for a thread. And you know how it gets around here, you start off on one thing and end up on a million others -- and then you realize you forgot to comment on the one thing you were supposed to so you have to go back and get it right.

But you know what I don't get that I forgot to mention? I don't get why there is rarely a line for Spaceship Earth and there is always a line for Test Track. I can go 60 mph whenever I want, but SE is an exceptionally good ride (IMO) and there is hardly ever a wait more than 10 minutes. And this may be weird but I really love the smell of SE; you know, that moldy, greasy smell?

Seems like SE would be more popular then Test Track, but it ain't.

Crystal Palace - Did not enjoy this one at all. It was so loud and so crowded. We waited for an hour past our ADR time, and both DH and DS were extremely irritable by the time we got a table. We were almost sitting on top of the people next to us. I'd bump both of our tables as I squeezed between them when I wanted to get more food. I spent half the meal apologizing to them. The food was mediocre at best, but I felt compelled to eat as much as I could considering how long we waited and the price of the meal. We were there for dinner, and maybe breakfast is a completely different experience, but it will probably be awhile before we give it another shot.

Vinylmation - I've tried to understand the point of this. But I just don't.

Mission Space/Star Tours/Kali River Rapids - Never again. I used to do them for my son's sake, but he's almost 15 and can ride them alone. I've tried to like them - it's not going to happen.

School Bread - It looked so delicious! DH said he wished he had taken a pic when I took my first bite. Apparently my disappointment was quite obvious. I'm glad I tried it, but I seriously don't get why people love this so much.
