Dole Whip.

Epcot.

Soarin' -- the first time two times I rode this, it was great. Now the film is starting to show its age.

Le Cellier -- was a great dinner, lunch, not so much. Now we don't bother.

Star Tours - I'm just not impressed by this minor attraction.

The cinnamon rolls from Main Street Bakery. I was so excited to try one, but it was just meh for me. I do wonder if the ones at Gaston's are better. I will have to try one...for science.

parades; I am just not a parade person I guess

Character meals; I try to avoid them. I just want to eat! Plus it's just my husband and me and he is definitely anti-character meal.

Soarin for me is ok, but I don't get the extreme fanaticism over it. But hey, I love Captain EO, so to each their own.

Mickey premium ice cream bar. There, I said it. They are ok, but definitely not something I ever care to eat again when I have so many better options to choose from.

Toy Story Mania once was enough
Mickey Bars don't love them prefer Mickey Ice Cream Sandwiches
MVMCP way too crowded (esp character line ups) and prefer the regular Wishes
Earl of Sandwich have had better sandwiches
Tangerine Cafe waited so many trips to try and was sooo disappointed

Ohana dinner - AWFUL!

Earl of Sandwich - Its a SANDWICH! Just a sandwich. I just dont get whats so great about it?

Le Cellier - Not awful, but seriously overrated. Steak was disappointing, soup was crap.

Beaches & Cream - NOT a good burger. Fries were good thou.

Dole whip, people rave about these all the time like it is the greatest treat ever.
It's just not.

The only time I hear people "rave" about Earl is because it's so cheap compared to everything else on property.

Turkey Legs - I won't eat it but my husband likes to get one and literally gnaw on it. He looks like part animal/part king and he thinks its the best thing ever. It's usually so salty though that in the morning, he's all swollen and that makes its worth it (in my opinion)

Dinoland was gross. In California Adventure, they have a carinval-like set up from the circus animals in a Bugs Life - THAT is how you do it.

Besides Tower of Terror and the RnR, we were not impressed with HS at all. Spent 1.5 hours there one morning and never went back. Rode both rides 3x though!

Those poor girls at BBB! I can tell you right now that if my hair was EVER pulled back that tight, even as an adult, I would have an EPIC tantrum! It just looks so painful and that makeup is not cute! Why not just "dust" them with a shimmer powder and call it a day?

Dining Plans - I've never had one but I cant tell you how many times we sat down to eat and saw a family of 4 with a MASSIVE amount of food. Does every single member of your family (including the 3 year old) really need ALL of that AND a dessert? It's normal to want the most bang for your buck, I understand that, but it just seems like it ends up being a lot of waste. Maybe some families eat the entire spread, but the ones we saw didn't.

Reservations - I don't get it. I have no idea what I'll want to eat for lunch in 1 hour, much less in 45 days after spending the day in a theme park. Plus, what if you don't want to hang out in a park until your reservation? What if the food sounds terrible to you during that day? I'd rather pick up snacks and counter service meals along the way. One or two reservations are fine, but some people book reservations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for every day! Too much!

Space Mountain...hated it! I was in fear for my life and felt like I would fall out of the ride the whole time, but since I didn't, maybe I would be willing to give it ONE more shot. It was very jerky and uncomfortable for me though and I happen to like roller coasters in general.

I've been on the dining plan several times and I'm not sure what you mean? The serving size is the exact same whether you are paying OOP or are using DDP credits. You get an entree, drink and dessert. The kids get smaller portions off the regular kids' menu.

I agree. I have seen this posted before and I don't get it. The food is the same no matter how you pay.
