We didn't like the food at Liberty Tree Tavern and Garden Grill.
The characters were great at Garden Grill but that was it for us.
We like other restaurants that many people don't.

That's the great thing about Disney, lots of choices on rides and food for everyone.

It's special if it's not served anywhere in your area! You simply can't get anything like it here in Virginia Beach. I'm a navy brat and we spent many years living on Oahu. For me it simply brings back so many wonderful memories of living there. I just love fresh pineapple. Once again: To Each His Own!

AK/HS--Each have a few features we like, but not enough to justify a full day. When we have park hopper, we usual combine these 2 into 1 day...when don't have park hopper we have an "early day" and finish by just after lunch and hang out at the resort or go to DTD to shop.

Space Mountain....DH loves it, but to me it's no more than a glorified ride through the dark with a few light holes.

I find the whole Dinoland at AK totally tacky. I hate that part. They could have done some really cool dinosaur things, but opted for lame carnival type rides and games. I love all things Disney, but this is a total waste of space, imo.

Eta- by the time I read all 8 pages I forgot this was supposed to be something others rave about that you dont get. Never heard anyone rave about Dinoland lol!

Liberty Tree Tavern was HORRIBLE!!!!!!! We had party of 6 and everyone agreed it was the worst meal of our trip. So disappointed.

No, never tried one. I cant get past that slimy look they have to them. When I see people eating them, with meat dripping/hanging everywhere
There are certain things that I will never try...and this is one of them

Agree! "ALL MY WISHES" get so annoying. The fireworks are usually decent, but can't say they're any better than those I've seen in Chicago.

Blizzard Beach.

I would like to start this explanation by stating that I haven't been to Disney World in over a decade and I have heard that there has been an addition or two (zip line I heard a rumor about) that may convince me to make a return trip to try some day. This is my opinion of how the park was circa 2000 and earlier.

The family tube ride is great and Summit Plummit is fun. Other than that I just don't see anything to write home about. The wave pool is lame. The other water slides were nothing special. My entire family (parents, brother, uncles, aunts, cousins) fell in love with these two body slides where you slide down on mats shaped like toboggans. I hate those things. I just think they are the dumbest ride there. I actively avoid them.

The themeing is god awful horrendous. Maybe it is just that I live in northern Michigan right in the middle of three of the best ski resorts in the state but the ski resort motif at BB just does not appeal to me in the least. I can't wrap my head around a ski resort water park. The chair lift is no big thing to me, again probably because I ride them on real snow all winter long, plus if it's more than about 75 degrees out the sun beats down on the seats and I burn my legs when I sit. Plus the landscaping is almost exclusively cement painted white so the sun just bounces off the fake snow piles, it's horribly bright out but you can't wear sunglasses while waiting in line for fear of losing them, and it increases risk of sun burn.

I vastly prefer Typhoon Lagoon. More shade, much better ambiance and landscaping. Better wave pool. Shark reef. Yeah. TL all the way for me.

I think Dole Whip is special - you can only get vanilla and chocolate soft serve around here. I think its unique in its flavor. I don't think its a MUST DO. But I think you have a to try it at least once - if you like pineapple
