Expedition Everest. We never saw a yeti - and the mob of people running to it at rope drop? We find Animal Kingdom to be generally underwhelming - this is after trying nearly all the attractions there on two separate trips.

We did enjoy the Nemo show, though. (See, no one else mentioned not liking EE, but tons mentioned Nemo - I guess we're odd ).

We also enjoyed the Wishes Dessert Party - thought it was the best $100 we spent on our last vacation.

Downtown Disney = never again for us.

It's interesting how everyone's opinions are different. We have had different experiences at different restaurants over time, too. Our first CRT was AWFUL - but the second time it was fine. We loved Chef Mickey's the first time, and the second time it was a huge disappointment. So much of what happens is luck of timing/day/cast member/weather/everyone's frame of mind at that moment.

I'm underwhelmed with Animal Kingdom (again, rancher, not too impressed with caged animals, I see those everyday at home). If we didn't have Park Hopper, I'd think we would just skip AK..but Everest and Dinosaur are worth it for us!

Some themes here, but it's nice we have our differences

EP: Nemo Ride

HS: GMR

MK: Stitch Ride

AK: Dinoland (except Boneyard for the little ones) + Prim"evil" Whirl makes me want to hurl & I need a chiro app't immediately following it. Did it once, swore never again, but youngest DS begged me & I had never been on it w/ him. NEVER AGAIN will I put my body through that torture!

Resorts: Comtemporary,

Characters: Duffy?!

But you have me seriously wondering my EP dining choices:

Coral Reef--Giving it a 2nd try (last one was 13 yrs ago--so youngest DS hasn't been there)

Le Cellier--always heard people fuss about it & b/c I lived in the Chicagoland area & can get great food of every ethnicity imaginable we've always felt the dinners at EP were ok to poor. Except for Rose & Crown, but DS hates the smell of malt vinegar & swears going there every trip is torture.

We've had 3 meals at Le Cellier and only once would I call the steak truly delicious. The other times the steaks were not as good as Outback. If you're expecting food on par with Ruth's Chris, you'll be disappointed. Not worth 2 credits although no Disney restaurant is worth 2 credits. Le Cellier does have a wonderful ambiance and the wait staff has always been gracious. Everyone's taste is different and you might love it. If there is nowhere else you want to use that extra credit, I would say give it a whirl.

While I am not a rancher we get great grass fed beef locally and I am usually disappointed/underwhelmed by steaks that I order in restaurants so I now tend to go to restaurants where they offer things I cannot get or make at home.
You will likely have to go and decide yourself but I have seen several threads with reviews that indicate the steak is not great.

You can walk to the Yacht Club from Epcot to eat at Yachtsman Steakhouse. The Dining experience IMO is 10x better and so is the steak!

Both Coral Reef and Le Cellier are on the top of my families trip every year. We literally plan our trip around those 2 places every trip and it never disappoints us and we are also from the chicagoland area so I totally get what you mean by that. I don't get why people are dissing le cellier spot much personally. I get why people would be annoyed with the pricing (we happened to be there literally the day before the pricing and menu change and were very relieved) and I also get that everybody has their own tastes but for me personally I don't think it deserves this much dislike. btw this is aimed at all the le cellier haters and isn't directed at you so please don't feel like this is just about you.

Totally agree, Yachtsman Steakhouse is the best.... Far superior to Le Cellier....

Le Cellier is just a glorified Ponderosa .... Wouldn't waste my time, money or credits... Plus they jam too many people in the dining area!!!

Does anyone else find this thread maddening?

I see a distinction between not liking something and not "getting" something. One means, it doesn't suit your preference. The other means you don't understand something. Such a distinction doesn't exist in this thread.

Carry on with the madness!

Not one other person in all 38 pages of this thread seems confused by it, so maybe YOU "just don't get it." .

I've read several posts in this thread where people have questioned what a previous poster didn't get about a certain attraction, restaurant or amenity.

Okay...they've been having a lighthearted debate over things they like or don't like. You had nothing to add to the conversation, other than saying that the whole post is "maddening." So move on....you don't have to read it. There are about 100 posts a day that would make me crazy to sit and read. You know what I do with those? Skip them.

Flame suit on.

Almost forgot...50's Prime Time. To be honest, we've never eaten there...we are afraid! I don't think my meek family would be able to enjoy their meal if faced with even the slightest possibility of being force fed or having to stand in the corner. I think my husband would tell someone to *bleep* off and we'd have to leave. Too bad...the decor actually looks like the kitchen his mom used to have! They should have a non-harassment section for weenies like us!!!!
If you want to try it go ahead and let your server know you don't want to participate in the antics and it shouldn't be a problem. I would also tell the host or hostess at the check in podium.
