I didn't go to Disney a lot before moving to FL but when I was a child the thing I was fascinated by was 20,000 leagues under the sea... that sub going down was just amazing to me, I thought we were really going all the way down.
That was always fun.

Does anyone remember DreamFlight?

I also liked World of Motion. I wish they wouldn't tear down a classic attraction to build a new one.

lol ok great tx! Ive done all that... so hopefully one of these years when I need it I will get one!

Yea you can do fun little tricks like logging into your account and pricing a few rooms. Price a deluxe, then a moderate, then value...saving the itinerary each time. Come back a week later and price some more. Keep saving the package but don't book. They always know what you're doing on your account, so they could send an offer in an attempt to get you to follow through.

At least that's one method some have discussed. Whether or not it works, nobody is sure.

I totally agree! I think you made the right choice!! We wouldve done the same thing! Have fun and let us know how it is! :-)

Funniest moments at Disney that you still laugh about when you think of them. Here's my top 3 list:

1. One day we separated and my older son was with me; he saw his dad walking into the Animation Studio at HS started running to him like, "Hey, there he is!"

The Snow Queen was standing there in the corner and we hadn't even noticed her. So, in character she yells out, "Don't run! WALK with DIGNITY!"

My son froze in his boots and just looked at her like he was afraid to move. It was so funny.

2. One day I went to do something on my own and when I came back I was just in time to catch my younger son getting down on his knees and bowing before Jafar. I mean, seriously... Jafar is pointing down and my son is like bowing and scraping.

I turn to my husband and say, "I leave him with you for 10 minutes and already he's a minion of evil?"

3. Last year at MNSSHP we sat down to watch Hallowishes in front of the castle. There was of course a big crowd, and we stand up, and my youngest son yells out, "Hey, THERE's Waldo!"

Sure enough across the other side some guy is dressed up as Where's Waldo. But the way he said it was as if he had just solved an age old mystery.
lol those are great!! I especially love the Jafar one!

Speaking of the GF, has any of you ever tried the Garden View Tea Room? It's a very nice high tea with little sandwiches and pastries and incredible strawberries and cream. I've been going for a few years now. It isn't on the dining plan, but I don't mind as its not expensive. I usually skip a counter service lunch, have tea, then a later table service dinner. Then I use the extra counter service for breakfast on check out morning.

Funniest thing that's happened to me was a few years ago. The Mickey and Minnie topiary on the path to tomorrowlqnd next to the castle. There was a couple up in the flower garden with their arms around them posing for a picture. A cast member came over to them and told them they couldn't be over there in the garden. Without batting an eye, they looked at the CM and said "oh it's ok, we're from Connecticut". The CM looked at me and we both had puzzled looks on our faces....I mean seriously, what did they say that for?
lol thats crazy do people from CT get special perks?

Not only did they NOT DIS...they didn't speak English.
Had to brush off my rudimentary Spanish and cover up my faux pas with a comment about their "bien ropa verde." LOL
Can't blame a girl for trying.

Some other funnies, now family traditions:
[All courtesy of my ds almost 14 who was 4 at the time of our first trip.]
We were approaching Epcot on the bus, and he sees S.Earth and says really loudly "HEY...there's the Hockey Ball at Apricot!!!"
Then at MK he wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel of Progress, and get the signatures of "Pokey Nose and the guy that fixes him."
To this day we still use those names for Carousel and Pinocchio/Geppeto.

The other funny one is we were waiting in line to board Soarin, and during the pre-flight video, featuring Patrick Warburton, the guy in front of us says to his wife "Hey, isn't that the waiter we had last night? Now, whenever we see Patrick Warburton on tv, my kids say "Hey, isn't that our waiter?" LOL
lol those are great! i love the spaceship earth one!

Does it require an ADR? I've always wanted to try it, but would love to be able to add it in last minute as the family stamina allows.
