We have passed the Dole stands but will have to make a point to try them. Too many people like them to resist next visit.

I do like pins and lanyards and wear and enjoy many but don't get the really big pins and over filled lanyards people wear. Aren't they really heavy? Some of those lanyards are so filled with them they must weigh more than I do! I try to imagine what would happen if they went on a ride that goes upside down lol. Do ER see disney pin lanyard injuries lol...

I select a few pins to put on my lanyard each day from a case. Otherwise I spend the entire day with neck ache and looking at the floor! Its a mistake I only made once...

Fantasmic

50s Prime Time restaurant

Turkey legs (not exclusive to WDW; I've tried them at 3 different parks/festivals/fairs and everytime I am too squicked out by the tendons/ligaments/sinewy stuff that I end up gagging and throwing the whole thing away, plus they are so salty with virtually no other flavor, IMHO)

The Poly..Don't get it AT ALL It reminds me of these apartments we used to live in when I was 8 which was a looooooong time ago. IMO, they just need to knock it all down and start over.

I didn't even see the stands at WDW, but there's a stand at another park we go to and I tried one the last time we were there and really liked it.

The cupcakes - nothing worth raving about in my opinion.
I make better tasting ones - filled with mousse and topped with whipped cream frosting.

Beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter food court. We've had beignets at Cafe DuMonde in New Orleans many times over the years and love them. We thought the beignets at Port Orleans were greasy and tasteless. A big let-down.

I totally dig it with fresh pineapple chunks, coconut and those yummy chewy mochi things on it!
There's a Menchies by me, and also another place that have the specific Dole Whip brand. Too bad I can take or leave them. But I love mochi balls and poppin' boba in my frozen treats!

If you want your girls to feel like princesses you can do most of the BBB look yourself.
1-Princess dress from disney store or halloween costume.
1-much more comfortable looking bun
1-can of glitter hairspray(regular hairspray and glitter work if you cant find)
a little blush
and some disney music on your MP3 player
and tada one princess!



My I don't get it is Pin trading if I want one I will buy that one. Trading is just

I'm obsessed with pins, but I don't get trading.
I'm a pin hoarder.
After all, I spent 20 minutes picking out that perfect Star Tours pin, so I won't be trading it for anything!
