I also agree with Duffy-I don't get the point isnt your mascot Mickey? You have so many awesome characters to merchandise with why bother with random teddy.

I have to agree with Soarin'. My 'Florida' family (mum, dad, sister, aunt and uncle) rode it on a year I wasn't with them and raved about it so I was pretty excited to try it out for myself. I understand the idea of it and think at that it is a very good idea but for me (who does not do thrill rides at all!) it seems very lacking in movement and sensation of flying. I was most disappointed, especially after waiting 90 minutes in a FP queue to get on it! They also majorly bigged up Dole Floats, something I had seen but never tried before, unlike others here, I was NOT disappointed!!! *dreaming of my next Dole float*

Everybody likes different things and we're lucky that's the way it works.

If everybody liked citrus swirls they would cost $44.50 and you'd need an ADR to get one.

I also do not care for the AK. There are a couple of attractions that I do like there. I see those and leave. On my upcoming trip in April I have no plans
to even go there.

Peter Pan...I just don't understand why wait that long for what it is. I got off the ride and thought..."that's it?"
Le Cellier...it was good not great!
Illumanations...we can watch or not.

For all of you hating on Duffy, I hope that you read his book first. The premise of Duffy if you buy one is to take photographs of him everywhere you visit ( like a travel gnome or Flat Stanley). That is what Mickey did in the book. Minnie made the bear for Mickey, and he took pictures of the bear for her on his voyage.

Fantasmic. I think it's silly and totally not worth the hassle.

The Osborne Lights seem to get universal rave reviews, and I gotta say I don't really get it. Yes, it's a major thrill when they all come on at the same time, but both times I've seen them we've watched them "dance" for 3 or 4 songs while the crowd just continued to swell to the point where we could barely move. Both times we inched our way through to the nearest exit and left. It just wasn't that much fun being surrounded and jostled!

For me, it's AK. We're going this summer and skipping this park completely.

I agree that Spaceship Earth is not worth the hype.
Soaring is a California based attraction. This was a headliner when CA Adventure opened in Anaheim. All of the locations in the movie are located in CA. I was shocked when this ride was copied in Orlando with no changes. I enjoyed the attraction the first couple of times, but do not think it is worth waiting longer than 15 minutes for. Also in CA, they have let the attraction go a bit. It is in need of maintenance as there are visible scratches on the margins of the screen.
I am happy that MK scrapped Mr. Toad. I wish DL would do the same thing. It has no magic. Just some tacky cardboard cutouts and a lot of noise. I would like to see it gone and replaced with Mickey's Philarmagic. Shockingly to me, it often had a line.

The entire imagination pavilion! Not interesting to me at all. I was actually annoyed by it.

I love the AK and Soarin and Epcot for though is the following
1. Jungle Cruise-find it a little lame
2. Tiki Room-this one really grates on my nerves
3. Muppet's 3D-I cannot stand those old men in the balcony.
4. The Hoop dee do Revue-The show wasn't bad but there are better shows in the park that you don't have to pay an arm and leg for and the food was terrible when we went. The ribs were burnt and they misjudged the food and didn't have enough the time we went and they didn't do anything to compensate us for that. But my son did get to go up on stage and get a certificate.

i don't really like Winnie the Pooh ride at MK and there is always a big line.

I do miss Snow White's Scary Adventures though.

I think for me it's TSMM. I mean, it's fun, I guess. But, I don't understand the mad rush and subsequent lines. If I can get a FP or a short wait time, I'll ride, but if we don't ride it, no biggie.
