Soarin - way over rated for the wait
Toy story Mania - again, way over rated for the wait
Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party - for the money, weak food selection and poor view
Tikki Room - annoying
1/2 of Epcot - I like the countries and Mission Space but usually bypass most of the rest
Most of Animal Kingdom - just not that interesting to me

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
If you haven't tried them - you really don't know. I never have seen one that is *slimey, dripping, or meat hanging everywhere*. Little exaggeration maybe? My dh & I enjoy sharing one, but not the kind of your description. They're not for everyone, just as any of the other snacks aren't. That's why we have so many choices.

We smoke our Thanksgiving turkeys every year, as that's the way we prefer them.

This. And Fantasmic - my kids and I both thought it was interesting once, but have no urge to go back. And Duffy. Yes, I know the story, but I'm not impressed. And Downtown Disney was ok for wasting an evening when we arrived and didn't have park tickets, but we would have been just as happy hanging out at the hotel. Most of Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood studios.

I most certainly will get flamed for this.....
The Poly,stayed there and had a really bad check-in experience,and a really dark and dirty room with a bad theme park view. I know a lot of people love it,but not me.
California Grill had great service,but mediocre food Just not worthy of my signature dining credits.

Ok...got my fire extinguisher ready

Although we LOVE dole whips, and get them every single time we visit because they are the MOST yummy and magical at Disney, we HAVE actually found a place you can get them outside of Disney! Ever heard of Menchie's Frozen Yogurt? They do carry a Dole pineapple variety from time to time and it IS definitely exactly the same as a dole whip! We love, love LOVE it! I totally dig it with fresh pineapple chunks, coconut and those yummy chewy mochi things on it!

If you google Zebra Dome picture, quite a few pictures will come up. It is a dessert served at Boma and can also be purchased at Mara. It's like a chocolate covered dome of mousse. My DDs and I didn't really like them but they have a HUGE number of fans!

Deep breath...I don't get most of the results of BBB. I just think little girls look strange with makeup and hair pulled into a tight, uncomfortable bun. Princess dresses are adorable, but getting totally "dolled up" just seems weird.

Flame suit on.

Almost forgot...50's Prime Time. To be honest, we've never eaten there...we are afraid! I don't think my meek family would be able to enjoy their meal if faced with even the slightest possibility of being force fed or having to stand in the corner. I think my husband would tell someone to *bleep* off and we'd have to leave. Too bad...the decor actually looks like the kitchen his mom used to have! They should have a non-harassment section for weenies like us!!!!

so glad to see other people mention Fantasmic. I thought I was the only one who did not like it. Completely overrated and not worth the wait, or the crowds.

BBB is new since I have been there last. I browsed their website a bit and the pictures just disturb me a bit. It reminds of of kiddie beauty pageants which creep me out to no end. I am a little worried DD will want to go there during our visit in April. That will be a big fat NO!!!! It's not as if Disney World doesn't have enough stuff to keep her occupied anyway.

No one should "flame" you for your opinion. BTW, there is no such thing as a bad theme park view...they are called "lagoon view", (theme park view with an obstruction). And I would only hope to get one of those rooms on my next trip!

50's Prime Time Cafe or Whispering Canyon

I don't get the appeal of these places and the interactions with the servers.

BBB......I cringe and get an instant headache (the hair looks so uncomfortable) when I see the finished products......I am so sorry, but I don't get it..and I have 2 little girls who LOVE all things princesses...and my youngest begs me to do it...I refuse to let her! Bad Mom....maybe, but they look soooo much cuter and more comfortable after doing the Pirate League Empress package IMHO!

Animal Kingdom...we haven't been in our last 3 trips. We only like the water ride and the safari. I guess b/c we have 2 smaller zoos near us and a large one about an hour away?? Maybe we should give it another try.

Not a fan of any "regular" buffet dinners. Regular food...like Chef Mickey, 1900, etc...we've eaten at a few and they weren't very good.

I LOVE the food at Whispering Canyon! Haven't had a bad meal there and have eaten there many times! They waitstaff has def toned it down in the past few years..from the first time we went years ago. I remember being appalled the first time..but still went back b/c of the food!!!
