Animal Kingdom-I mean it's pretty and all but doesn't really have anything that pulls me in. So we've skipped that park on our last 2 trips.

Turkey Legs-It's great if you like them, but blech IMHO!

Imagination-now that they ruined it.

Mission Space-Great if you are interested in space and always wanted to be an astronaut or whatever, but I'd rather not spin around take G forces and . Which would grant me useless and wasting my money in the theme parks for the next few days or whatever.

Peter Pan-It's okay and fun if you have like little to no wait but no way am I waiting in line for more than 20 mins for it. Same goes for Winnie the Pooh.

It's a Small World-I can see going on it if you have kids or first timers with you, but otherwise, NO. It's just too traumatizing and that song...."it's the same old song, it's the same stupid song..." lol. *puts on flame suit*

I'll probably take heat for this too...
The GF. IDK it's great if you can afford to stay there and you like it. But I've been there a few times and just feel uncomfortable. It just seems very to me. I'm a classy gal, I just wouldn't ever stay there. Even though, I do think it's a beautiful resort
I think that's all..

I just think it's a relic of 1960s thinking. Looks like Tomorrowland did before its retro upgrade. Supposedly every major city in the world was going to have an extensive monorail system in place by the 1980s.

Other than the more than occasional hiccups, I realize the monorail is a pretty efficient method of moving people around Disney. It works well enough for its limited purpose.

I doubt Disney will ever remove it unless it becomes too problematic or too expensive to operate and maintain. I suppose they'd use busses if that ever happens.

If they ever do decide to tear it down, they should implode it in some spectacular fashion and charge people to watch. Logistics be damned!!

TIW I cannot get the price to stack up against the savings. But maybe it depends on how many dining and if you eat a lot at Disney. Only 2 of us and we dine both on and off world. So to be fair maybe I just don't get it for us... :-)

The big one for me is Test Track. It just does nothing for me. We did it once since it re opened and now we can skip it on future visits.

I agree about Peter Pan. My daughter and hubby like it, but I just don't get the fuss over that ride. I'd much rather do It's A Small World, Winnie the Pooh, or any number of others.

I agree about the GF too. I'd honestly rather stay at Pop Century than GF. And I'd definitely choose Poly, CR, WL, or AKL over it any day. We found it to be stuffy and lacking in personality. Felt the same way about Boardwalk. We much prefer the themey resorts because those seem more authentically Disney and what we're looking for in a Disney vacation.

Here are my personal ones:

IASW - creepy, creepy dolls
AK - there's really nothing spectacular there for me
Wishes - I know how beloved it is - just don't get the fascination at all
Le Cellier - eh, way overrated
Turkey Legs - just can't over the visual when people are eating them -

But hey - to each his/her own - this is why Disney is so awesome - there is something there for everyone!

OHANA DINNER. I just dont get it. It was incredibly disappointing. I wouldnt even consider it good! Slimy wings, poor quality beef, dry pot stickers. Horrendous pork. blah! When I hear ppl say its the best restaurant on property, I have to wonder...how??

Le Cellier - so over rated.

Dole Whip - Its nothing spectacular. I like the citrus swirl better.

Wait, what? You'd rather do Its A Small World than Peter Pan?? Different strokes I guess, i'd rather sit in my room all day staring at snow on the TV than do Its A Small World.

Soarin and Toy Story Midway Mania. They are both fun attractions, but I don't understand the hype, especially with the rush for fast passes for them. In the age of high definition, I was disappointed by the visual quality of Soarin (especially considering this is supposed to be a headliner attraction at Epcot). Toy Story Midway Mania is fun and the theming and props in the queue area are very cute, but I certainly wouldn't power walk through HS at rope drop to get a fast pass for it or wait in line for an hour to ride it either.

Turkey Legs, Duffy, Dole Whips, Cinderella's Royal Table and O'hana. (These are subject to change after each trip)

However, to be fair, there are things I really look forward to each trip that I am certain others would find silly and a waste of their time. :

My daughter (almost 6) LOVES IASM! I do actually enjoy it too. We always walk right up with no wait and it's a nice long, relaxing ride (i.e. break). I think I enjoy the nostalgia of it as well as all the colors, etc. Yeah, for whatever reason, I genuinely like that ride. We always do it twice during our trip. If I missed Peter Pan, I wouldn't be bothered at all, but DD always insists on one ride on it.

As the PP said, Duffy is a head scratcher for me too. How the heck did that bear manage to get his own store in WS?? He's not exactly ethnic and I'd never even heard of him until we went to Epcot. And the meet & greet ... can't believe I let my DD talk me into waiting in line for it on our first trip. Yep, just don't get why they need that bear.

Boma. Yuck! Read everyone's rave reviews.... Our family of five didn't like it. Ended up going to the food court after. Lol
