Agreed! Just got back from WDW and saw people lining up at 10:00 am for lunch. Two hours for lunch. How good can this place be!

Oh and now tried dole whip. I called it 'dull whip' lol. There is a drive thru yogurt place near DTD that is a quarter of the price and tastes much nicer! Or the soft serve at OKW! Maybe it's me....

Definitely the Dole Whip! We have a seasonal ice cream place a mile from our house and they carry the stuff. Really, really couldn't figure out what I was missing! It's basically soft-serve ice cream--same as we get any time!

Space Mountain. Done it, but not impressed. Definitely not a favorite.

Garden Grill. So-so food, poor service, people gawking at your table as it comes around to the front of the restaurant.

Park hopper. Too overwhelming. One park a day is plenty!

What a fun forum! I will say everyone has different tastes and that is why I love Disney so much!
I also like to give things 2 chances at least to see if maybe I was mistake the first time - like Tower of Terror - bad experience the first time, then loved it the 2nd.
I have 3 things for this list:
BOMA - just a very average buffet, actually I would rate it below avg especially considering the price. Tried it twice - dinner and breakfast. Dinner was slightly better - breakfast was pathetic. Do not get how people like this over the 100s of other better choices in Disney.
Soarin - 3 times tried, each time, I left saying - just what am I missing? Nothing special at all about this ride, it is like any other Imax theater.
Dole whip - only tried once here - but so gross, can not even fathom trying it again. This one may be more just personal taste and I can see why some people might like it, but again, so many better choices at least for my taste buds.

Does your local place have pineapple soft serve? Because that's what makes it a big deal to those of us who love it - the flavor. (Well, actually, I always get the pineapple/vanilla swirl. )

Contrary to popular opinion, Via Napoli. I was so looking forward to trying the pizza there on our first trip three-and-a-half weeks ago, but my calamari was rubbery, and all the toppings on our pizza slid off in the first bite and the crust was too chewy. What a disappointment. I also thought the sauce tasted like grocery store jarred sauce; we loved Wolfgang Puck Express though.

I also agree with DHS not having much to do unless you have teenagers.

Everything else was thoroughly enjoyed by us, and the adult slushies in France definitely lived up to their hype for me

EPCOT in general...outside of mission space and maybe having a meal there I would be fine missing the park on my next few visits.

Akershus...we went for one of my daughter's B-Days and....never again...for being one of the pricier CMs the food was...meh.

Planning every minute of everyday at the world...it is a vacation!

For me it is Trading Pins, getting autographs from characters and obsessive planning.

The Dole Whip, Le Cellier, Soarin (the big, black dot on the projector ruins it for us), Test Track, Rock N Roller Coaster (bangs our heads quite a bit), Test Track (new look looks cheap), and the Little Mermaid (also looks cheap.) All of these are overrated (in our opinion.)

Incidentally, we like or love everything else about the 4 WDW parks. No kidding!

very meh, but I've only been once. Got there around 3pm and still feel like I did it all.
Gotta say I agree with this.....our next trip I have a 3 bedroom condo and when I add up the cost of the condo, the estimated cost of our food (we've been often enough I had it down pretty good).....let's just say our trip will be 24 days with the condo and buying our own CS/TS and eating sometimes at "home".....for the same price we can stay at POP with free dining for about 1/2 that many days. So....I can stay in a 345 square foot hotel room with only 2 chairs, even though there are three of us.....eat 3 meals of high calories so-so food, wait for their bus and sit on it with some screeching kid.....or I can have a 1200 sq foot home with a full kitchen, full living room, private hot tub, free laundry, and eat what and where I want (meaning many off site meals and homemade meals) AND stay twice as long. Hmmmmm.....no brainer to me.

Now, we'll have APs so no park parking, but even adding in the $14 a day for our entire trip only changes the equation by less than 3 days. So, I can stay onsite for about 14-15 days, or offsite for 24. Still no brainer.
