I've never had beignets good anywhere else. Well, that goes for almost any New Orleans, South MS, cajun, southern food. It's just not as good as where it comes from. I EXPECT to be disappointed when I try them, lol.

I don't get Dole Whips. I've only tried them once. Maybe I just got a bad one - but it wasn't sweet at all. Just too citrus-y for my tastes.

Finally read this whole thread and had to addy own that i don't recall seeing.
Lapu Lapu at Polynesian. Before my last trip saw so many people on here say how good they are I had to try it. It was so strong i had to let the ice melt to water it down to be able to drink it. And i by no means only drink weak drinks but this tasted like straight alcohol.

We now skip AK and DHS. Been there, done them, and now stick to MK and ET. We don't like the food at either Mexican restaurant, nor Nine Dragons at Epcot. DTD--we must do the Lego store, but can do without the rest.

I have a friend who specifically asks if the DISers are raving about something because then she won't order it, lol. Zebra Domes, Tonga Toast, that soup at Le Cellier and the almighty Dole Whip...all were just okay by her - nothing to rave about - except that soup, which she really did not care for at all. "They lie" is her new thing, lol. The Chicken Carbonara at Mama Della's, though, she never stops talking about. And nobody ever mentions it or the restaurant (probably because it is at Uni). :D

Different strokes!

Pretty much all the food at carts and quick service. Dole Whip, blecch. Tonga Toast is like a McDonald's rejects. Everything, everywhere lacks flavor and is overprocessed.

I do like Narcoossee's and some of the other table service restaurants, but I have never had anything at Disney that I would actually recommend to someone else. I always lose weight while there; 2-3 lbs in a week.

And the movie ride at DHS is a snooze.

The whole pin trading thing . I do own a few special pins, would never consider trading them to someone else as I picked them out special as keepsakes. I don't get spending all the time at parks trading with CMs. Definitely not my thing, but I guess others enjoy it

STITCH!

OMG, how could anyone hate that attraction?! It's totally the best attraction in Tomorrowland, hands down.







Ok I'm kidding. I'll never go on Stitch....

I guess mine is American Adventure- I can't stand that show. Seriously.

We saw the Lion King show at AK once, but didn't really care for it. Cap May for breakfast. Crystal Palace - it was beautiful inside, but the food really wasn't very good. The "Imagination Pavilion" - that Figment thing freaks me the heck out. Captian EO - why???? Stitch's Great Escape.

We do actually like Dole Whips. And Peter Pan.

people that compulsively formulate and try to account for everything, then when something goes wrong itís a meltdown of frustration. Youíre at WDW! Holy cow people your only decision is what park to go to that day. Donít plan to the last Nano second itís how you deal with curves that makes your vacation exceptional.
