    I'm exactly the same! There's nothing worse than getting there and wanting to wear an outfit but you can't, because you have all the pieces needed but no shoes that even slightly match, etc. The ironic thing is that I'll pack my suitcases to bursting, but then only wear a few of the same things the whole trip.

    And don't get my started on how many times I've had to buy a new piece of luggage there just to get all my souvenirs home lol!

    I really didn't like Soarin' that much. To me it didn't live up to the hype or being worth the long lines.

    I hear ya! :sad2: If I attempt to pare down, I will end up not packing something I'll need. Such as, last August or it could have been June or July, but some time last summer, I was paring down, and only took my 2 pairs of Birkenstocks sandals along with a pair of tennis shoes. Well, I know Disney in summer...and WHY did I not think I'd need water friendly shoes? :confused3 Wet birkenstocks are just plain yucky!! I bought some water shoes at Blizzard Beach, but that was cause I nearly burned my feet off. Not having been to a water park in more than a decade, I forgot about hot pavement. Luckily, Disney is right there ready to sell me some! :thumbsup2

    In November, I brought shorts, capris and a skirt and the only jeans I brought were the ones I wore in the car...and no coat, I didn't think I'd need it south of VA, so I just brought a blanket in the car. So, I ended up having to wear my one pair of jeans over and over!! It was just so cold...and I only had one hoodie. I had looked at photos of previous Thanksgiving trips and determined that we were mostly shorts...but not in 2012!! In the winter, you need to bring everything!

    Although...since Starbucks came out with VIA, I stopped bringing the Tassimo. I also have stopped bringing the margaritaville machine and the blender. Margaritas just taste better at EPCOT. :banana:

    Oh my gosh you sound exactly like me and my siblings! Once my sister didn't pack a single thing warmer than a tank top - guess who had to buy a hoodie before we even got on the plane to fly to FL. Another summer I thought "what if there's a cold day??" and packed a coat that never left the suitcase. When I was there last week it was a nightmare - some days were below 50F in the mornings, other days it went up to 78F mid-day, and I had no plans to go back to the room. Some days I was wearing Uggs while everyone wore flipflops, other days I was shivering in a skirt while everyone else had gloves on. I'm not good at weather-planning, that's for sure!

    1. I have never visited WDW as an adult until a handsome coworker dude told me he LOVED WDW! Poof - many trips to WDW followed - I am just...that...shallow. :wave2:

    2. I became a AKL groupie and spend silly amounts of $$$ twice a year.

    3. The coworker and I are no longer in contact - so now all my trips are solo... and I love it!!!

    So selfish (and happy) am I!!!

    You won't get flamed here right? Well I'll bite...

    * I don't get why everyone loves The Lion King. I'm not saying it's a bad movie, it's not. It just seems people favor it over everything else.

    * Aside from the Toy Story trilogy I think Disney sequels are unnecessary, especially the straight to DVD ones.

    * I went to see High School Musical 3 and Hannah Montana the movie in theaters. Excluding the parents I was the oldest one there. (FYI I'm 27).

    * I find myself watching Disney Channel and sometimes Disney Junior- I have no children and no younger siblings.

    I hate Ariel and I might have to "accidentally" scratch my dd4 DVD so she can't watch that little tart again. Phew. I feel better.

    ALL OF THESE THINGS, well except for the fact that I adore rock'n'roller coaster...

    And I'd have to add that when travelling with others it means I love them VERY VERY much if I actually deign to ride IASW with them. I abhor that ride. Passionately. UGH.

    Crashed a Jungle Cruise boat when I was 13. I was allowed to "steer" and when they let me try to bring it into the dock I went too fast a slammed the back of the boat in front of me. Pretty sure the Cast member that let me drive got an earful that night.

    I'm a bit ambivalent about IASW. I hate the sickly-sweet song that won't die after going on the ride (LOL!) but I enjoy looking at the national costumes and identifying them before seeing the signs.

    I'm loving this thread!

    Okay, a few more:

    I think Tinkerbell is a movie usurper. It was Peter Pan but everything is about Tink, especially now. There's never anything Peter.

    It's been four years but I still have a fastpass for Space Mountain in my wallet. We didn't get round to using it.

    I'm terrified of Goofy. He's too tall. I keep thinking he's gonna knock a kid out without even noticing it.

    I consider the "Parade of Strollers down Mainstreet at closing" a parade in it's own right.

    I call Disneyland Paris "diet Disney". Real Disney to me is Orlando. Even more than Disneyland.

    I really love WDW. I've totally bought into "the most magical place on earth".

    LOL - Many years ago, my family and I were swimming in the CR pool when Goofy came to visit. My sister (probably 4ish) was so excited she ran over and hugged him. He never saw her and bent down to greet another child smacking her in the head with his snout. She went down hard and freaked out (granted it was mostly little kid shock) but I'll never forget the vision of Goofy "knocking out" my sister. Goofy felt horrible.

    My new shameful secret - I'm already planning my 50th bday - it's 2 years away and I'm mostly excited that I'm not taking the kids. This trip is all about me. I feel quite guilty being so selfish - but they'll be 17 & 21 and for once I want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

    I bought into it, too! I don't know how anything other than WDW could possibly be considered Disney.

    I hate amusement parks but absolutely love DisneyWorld! While I will not go on any "Fast" rides or "Flying" rides, I truly enjoy watching my son and DH go on them like the Mountain rides, roller coasters, etc. Truthfully, I went on the Magic Carpets ride last year and almost cried out of fear (Quite scared of heights!) lol

    I don't care for the turkey legs that everyone raves about- they taste yucky.

    I hate any kind of amusement parks outside of Orlando... I have this weird fear like the rides just aren't safe. The traveling fairs that visit various towns just look to me like the rides are about to fly off the tracks. I only feel safe going on "big" rides at places like WDW and Seaworld.

    I can't stand Alice in Wonderland. Spoiled brat should have stayed where she was told.
