    FutureWorld was the first place I ever went in Disney World and I didn't understand the pavillion concept and I found the closed doors of the buildings intimidating (in the 'I don't think we're supposed to go in there' way)therefore I didn't go into any of the Future World buildings except Living Seas and Test Track. I just walked around wondering where the rides and attractions were.:confused3 I left disappointed and then when I started doing some planning for a return trip I discovered all the things we had missed. It just proves that you need to do your research before you go.

    It was much better on subsequent visits, but I still don't love EPCOT like I do the other parks.

    1. I book on-site and deluxe resorts because when I was a kid my dad insisted we stay at Super 8 or Motel 6.

    2. I have a secret crush on "Belle"

    3. I get choked up during the fireworks and most other Disney shows.

    4. During the last night of our last Disney Cruise I told my son it was time to go back to the stateroom because we had to go home the next day. He started crying and looked up at me with those big brown eyes, "But I dont want to leave Mickey's boat!" - Next thing I knew I was in tears.

    Took DS11 and DD9 to see "Brave" today (I know, I'm late! but it was a busy summer). Even now with kids that old, I teared up like you on the cruise.::sad:) We're sailing again on the Magic this November and I'm sure I'll be tearing up again!

    Hey, I can admit it. Nothing wrong with a man admitting that he cries. I'm not typically emotional, but something about the music and the magic etc...

    The only other time I ever remember crying was when I had lost my job and we were moving, my wife and I sitting in our living room with packed boxes all around. Felt like I had lost everything, and we both cried.

    Thanks, yes that was in November 2002 so I've had 2 jobs since then. I appreciate the sentiment.

    My secret is I love IASW. For me its really not the ride. My grandfather was a mechanical engineer and back in the day when IASW was high tech my grandfather was amazed by the engineering. As he got older and could no longer travel to WDW he would always say "Ride Its A Small World for me." So now its a family tradition that we MUST ride at least once. We usually end up teary eyed by the time the ride ends because we end up taking a trip down memory lane rather than paying attention to the ride.

    My Disney Shameful Secrets are that I hate the Indiana Jones Stunt Show, I only go on the riverboat when i need to sit down and relax for a little while, it bores me to tears. I also wish WDW had an adults only time even and i hate Coronado Springs Resort, it was too big for me. oh and one more thing I hate Soarin, I was very underwhelmed by it, and I only continue to ride it because almost DH love is. It also grosses me out that he wants to try a Turkey Leg, they scare me. TOT Scares me too but I'm trying to get over that and The one time i road ARR I closed my eyes the WHOLE time. :confused3

    The entire time I was a CM, on my days off, I went back to the parks. I never did anything else. I guess you can call me a little obsessed.

    I was not impressed by Soarin' at first but it grew on me. It's really relaxing and a nice way to get off your feet for a few minutes!

    I am right there with you. Haven't seen a Disney parade since I was a kid (except for the time we got "caught" in the middle of Jammin Jungle Parade...we were trapped!) :crazy2:

    Country Bears are so not Disney to me!

    c) Ariel's just hot! I know it's wrong to crush on a cartoon, but she just is.

    My DH would agree with c)


    Mine too:lmao:

    Same! I've never seen the appeal and I wish they'd go away! I also do not like parades, I just think they're weird.
