Duffy. I just don't get it. To me, it doesn't even feel like Disney. He's not even that cute

Pin trading. Pins have never factored into my styling choices , and I have no use for a pile of pins in a drawer or on a lanyard!
I am disabled and on the disabled car 'Jessie' there is a push button gun. I always ask for that one because I cannot pull the string!

Fantasmic. Took the time to go once and just didn't get it. It was okay, but the wait to get in was long! I keep thinking we somehow missed something.

Haven't read everything but getting a chuckle out of so many responses. My last two trips and my upcoming trip have been mother/child. Took DS in 2010 and DD in 2011 and DDand I go again this week. They both love totally different things. DS adores Fantasmic and Lights, Motor, Action, and Indiana Jones...but DD can definitely live without them. I get a totally different experience with each child...and that is wonderful.

DS doesn't really care what we eat or where (pizza every meal would be fine) and would rather have a root beer float than a Dole Whip any day....but DD is so excited about all of the special foods we are indulging in next weekend ..Dole Whips, turkey legs, caramel apples, and "eating around the world" in Epcot!

Different strokes for different folks, right?..........P

WDW 12/1974, WDW 03/1983, WDW 05/1992 (with DH on HONEYMOON ), WDW 01/2002 (first family trip to WDW), WDW 01/2004 (2nd family trip), DL and DCA 07/2005 (first family trip to DL!), WDW 06/2007... DD gets to go without us! WDW & Discovery Cove 04/2008 (First stay at Pop ), WDW 01/10 DD goes without us AGAIN! , WDW 05/10 Mother/Son trip WDW 05/11 Mother/Daughter trip !! WDW 05/13 Mother/Daughter trip #2 celebrating GRADUATION!

Osborne Lights.

I just don't get it....I was so excited to see it...and then stood there in the crowd and thought..."Huh.....that's it?"

I don't know what I expected but that wasn't it.

For me, it was Ohana.

I waited and waited to go. I could never get a dinner reservation (we tend to plan our trips about a month in advance). We finally got a reservation for our last trip in April. I was SO excited to go there.

Funny, my hubby LOVED it--and as excited as I was about eating there--after a yucky meal, I would not care to go back again.

Add me to the Fantasmic list. We went for the first time last year after hearing SO many raves. ULTRA boring. Watching old cartoons projected onto water just didn't do it for me. I kept waiting for the "spectacular" part and it never came.

The * idea* of it is cool. ( As in the stage, water, can show a story line) And I looove the boat the end but the rest, to dark, not that fun. I don't 'get' it.

I have a few...keep in mind I love almost everything else about the parks, but these are just a few I could think of:
- Rock n Roller Coaster. I do like this ride, but by no means do I think it is the best in the park. I much prefer ToT. It's fun, but super short and I wouldn't want to wait more than about 30 minutes for it at most.
- Lights Motor Action is literally a huge waste of time and space. I'm not sure if this counts because I don't hear many people "rave" about it, but it's not a favorite by any stretch.
- Beauty and the Beast on stage. Everyone I know raved about this show and said that I as a theatre person simply HAD to go see it. Well, I did.....and I was so appalled by Belle's singing voice I nearly walked out. I've seen it one time and it was enough for me.
- new Test Track. I was really let down when I went on the new one. The design-your-car process takes too long and usually doesn't work anyway, and it just feels like I'm on a ride version of TRON. It was fine before, why mess with it?
- Pin trading. I tried, I really, really tried to understand. But I just don't get the appeal! This also goes for....
- Vinylmations. I don't get it. I don't know if I could make myself buy something not knowing what it was until I've already spent money on it. I also don't like buying things that just "sit around" and I feel like that's what my vinylmations would do if I had them.
- Duffy Bear - I don't?????? understand???????????? who are you???????

lol this turned into me just listing things I don't understand
of course, all the best to you if you enjoy any of these things. maybe I'm the crazy one for not doing so
