    :confused3
    I mainly lurk, and find out loads of info. I make notes things to try and do, and then in due course I try them. Some have dissapointed, big time but have been raved about. What have you really wanted to try because loads of people have raved about it?
    mine,

    1,:confused3 citrus swirl, its ok but really just ok, I'd rather have a dole whip!!!!
    2, Soarin, have only done it once will not do it again, possibly because I dont really like heights.
    3, House of Blues Sunday Brunch, I found it somewhat odd, very over the top, having said that the buffet was fantastic.

    I don't get the Dole Whip.

    It's okay, but just soft serve ice cream. DH and I only took a couple bites and threw the rest away. Not sure what I was expecting, but wouldn't really have to be in the mood for ice cream.

    And it was WAY too big. DH went up and got it so not sure if they come in sizes and he ordered a large, but it was enough for a family to share.

    I agree with you about Soarin. Keep thinking I need to give it another go since everyone else thinks its so fantstic but for me it was lame

    Soarin' we were just discussing the other day how disappointing it was and not worth the wait to ride again but we were happy to have given it a try so we would know what it was about.

    Park Hoppers. It caused more stress than it relieved for our family.

    nooneshome but us dis shutins-send help or APs

    I don't get the dole whip thing either. It is okay if you have FD and have lots of snack credits to burn. Another is Illuminations. I'd rather wait for Wishes or fantasmic. Wishes is way better and Fantasmic has seating.

    DisGirl819 <font color=blue>Then I thought about it and reali

    DHS, overall, it is not a park we go to often We've been once in four trips and were underwhelmed by things to do there. We are trying it again this time if we can somehow snag TSM FPs.

    I read a lot more than I post. I like that Disney has many options so that we are all happy, but there are a few things I don't get the hoopla about it. (and I have tried them all) I think it is almost cultish. LOL

    Dolewhips
    Duffy
    The NEW Test Track
    Zebra Domes
    Schoolbread (very underwhelming)
    The Lego Store
    Le Cellier (I have had better steaks locally and in travling around the nation, especially in the South)

    ThreeBeans Now with FOUR Beans

    Carousel of Progress. I realize it appeals to the sentiment of days gone by, but the last scene is just so horribly bad :lmao:

    blessedby3 Actually Blessedby4 now, but cant change my userna

    Spaceship Earth and The Great Movie Ride:goodvibes
    Oh yeah...and the giant turkey legs...or whatever they are. I get sick seeing people eating them...YIKES!
     
  11. Heres a controversial one, but I just don't get Wishes. Everything tells me I should like it but it does nothing for me. I could watch Illuminations all night long (and probably cry every time too), and I always sit with my jaw dropped at the end of Fantasmic. I think she Wishes song (the little girl singing) grates on me and the actual fireworks are a bit "meh".

    Although even if we're not watching Wishes and doing rides instead I always try and make sure I see Tink fly so I guess I really like that bit!

    Tonga Toast. I tried it for the first time on my Disneymoon and it was just a huge chunk of dry french toast with a few tiny slices of banana in the middle. Yuck.

    For me it's Tonga Toast.
    Too big, too sweet, too fried----- too much!

    I feel like my cholesterol raised 100 points with one bite. I don't know how people can eat it without throwing up.

    Have you tried those turkey legs? I thought they were gross, too, until I tried one!

    I say most of the restaurants are not that great. Maybe if you live in an area where Olive Garden is considered good, maybe, but I can get much better food at home.
     
  18. bbluvsdis

    bbluvsdis luv all things Disney!!

    Toy Story Mania. I have done it a few times when FPs were available but I just don't get all the hoopla. I like Buzz just as much.
    Love love love Soarin.
    Dole whip and Tonga Toast just OK.

    Disney food. Best I've had there was at House of Blues and it is about like Applebee's. And Crystal Palace, because it was awful.
     
  20. Mad Hattered

    Mad Hattered I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work.

    Dole Whips and Snorin' over California.

    1. Dole Whip :confused3 why?? And my family loves ice cream.
    2. Tonga Toast....
    3. Animal Kingdom....I really "try" to like AK. I make sure we try new things each time we are there, but there's no sparkle for me. We are actually going to AKL for dinner on our AK day in a couple of weeks and hope this adds to the AK experience for us.
    4. Mission Space...I wait, they ride :lmao:
    5. Jungle Cruise...We've walked on by when there have been 5 minute waits!
    6. 1900 Park Fare....it is the worst meal/restaurant we have ever had, ever! Our family joke: if you don't eat your dinner, we'll make you eat at 1900 :rotfl2:
