    I don't get what people don't get about Disney lol...so many people say to me 'going again...' Or 'don't you get bored'. Bored? I cant sleep for 2 weeks before we arrive out of excitement and I am 41!

    I can't write off DHS entirely. There is a lot about it that I do like; however, Hollywood has little to do with what I like, short of the Tower of Terror, which is based on the Twilight Zone thing.

    I do love RR and I do love TT. Also, Star Tours is a fun ride. The GMR can fall off the face of the earth, as far as I'm concerned. I don't like anything about it, except that I can take a nap on the ride. And of course, they put TSM in there to keep people coming back.

    I'm with you about Soarin'. I think it's just a great ride, but they need to do a little maintenance to that big screen. There are noticable nicks in it. But overall, I love the ride and it's an absolute must-do everytime we go, regardless of wait times. I do wish they would make it 3-D.

    We were not impressed with soarin (seeing the corners of the screen and then feet above me ruined the experience)

    Food at Mk in particular, hoping the new fl places are better. We did like the CRT lunch, my meal was better than I expected but the kids meal choices were awful..in order to get the cute cupcake we had to get the icky pizza. My daughter wanted one of the other meals but not a yogurt parfait. I was bummed to pay s much for gros pizza. However she had an amazing time, it was worth it.

    Dole whips

    Beauty and the best show at days. I've seen better college productions...the other shows we saw were so good I expected more.

    Nostalgia is the only explanatn Icahn think to explain the Peter Pan lines. We were glad we walked on.

    I am surprised people do not like Dino land. My daughter loves Dinosaurs, we had a lot of fun. Skipped the games, the boneyard was a lovely break!

    Some things we were surprised that we and our 5 year old loved? Spaceship earth, the land, Tom Sayers island( to let the kids run around). The meal we liked most was tusker house, the food was fantastic, characters so much fun. She also loved visiting the world showcase!

    I was surprised how much the adults loved the vacation...not really Disney people before, but we completely loved it and are going back next year for a short trip.

    Downtown Disney - too much of a pain to get there and back and all it is is shops and restaurants, which all the parks and resorts already have in abundance.

    Fantasmic - don't get me wrong, I thought it was an okay show but I'd never wait in a long line for it (we did it with the dinner package).

    Coral Reef - can get a better view of the tank from the Seas exhibit, the staff is surly, and the food is no better than a bad Red Lobster.

    Nemo ride - yes it's kind of cute but, overall, a yawner.

    The design your own car part of Test Track - just slows down the ride and is meaningless as your design choices are irrelevant to the ride experience.

    The Pirate Ship Slide at SAB - too much of a pain to walk over to where you get on it (actually have to walk across the main pedestrian path outside of the resort) and the bumps hurt my back.

    Overrated - The Lion King show. I don't get it. I find it to be, like, over-the-top boring. Same with the Nemo show. And TSM? Yeah, you all kill yourselves to get there, I'm going to walk on to ToT 5 or 6 times, then wander to RRC. And MSEP? It makes me miss Spectro. And I hate the new TT. And I don't get the whole Vinylmations thing.

    Underrated - Captain Eo. That is the greatest 15 minute 4D movie of all time. I love, love, love that show and everything it stands for. That movie makes me so happy. The Nemo Ride... The first time I saw that, I was an adult, and the part where you see Dory and Nemo and Marlin, like, the real ones, in the tank with the real fish? That was a magic moment. It blew my mind. And I can't believe nobody talks about what a sweet little ride "Winne the Pooh" was. And the Mexican boat ride and Livin with the Land are like the best breaks to take on a ride, like, ever.

    Another vote for the BBB. Fifty bucks to get your adorable little girl tarted up like those poor kids on Toddlers and Tiaras? Two hundred if you wanted the outfit you could buy somewhere else for a lot less? I have a four year old DD who's totally into princesses, but I would never even consider going there. Now if only they had an option to do a cute little girl hairdo with sparkles like you can get at the Harmony Barber Shop so we could get the whole princess treatment without the painful looking hairdo and inappropriate makeup.

    Topics like these can go on and on until every single thing at WDW is mentioned. If it exists, chances are someone out there doesn't like it.

    Dole Whip - It's not the worst thing ever, but I didn't like the artificial aftertaste. I doubt I will get it again after trying it once.

    Finding Nemo the Musical - Hated it. I thought the singing was annoying and found the show as a whole to be really boring. My boyfriend and I contemplated walking out a few times, but managed to stick it out. (However, I LOVE Festival of the Lion King!)

    Soarin' - I like it okay, but I don't get the hype and especially not the ridiculously long wait times. It just reminds me of an IMAX movie or something.

    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin - This was such a letdown. TSMM is 1000x better! I even prefer the Universal counterpart to Buzz, Men in Black Alien Attack.

    Cosmic Ray's - We found the food here to be bland and barely edible. I always read that they have good burgers, but for us? Not so much.

    Our family hates Kali ride at animal kingdom....we never get wet and the theming is boring. We ride it each trip just in case we might get wet, but not a drop.....

    LOL We *don't* ride each trip anymore because we *do* get soaked, and I can't stand being wet, and still tour the parks! :headache:

    I'd love to know how you've managed that. We've never gotten off without all of us being totally soaked. We always make it our last ride because we know we'll have to go change.

    I'm with most of you on Soarin'. My mom likes it. It's ok, but only marginally more evicting than Living with the land which she also likes.
    Also the parades minus MSEP

    I get the Turkey legs because I loved them when I was a kid, but I'm not used to eating food like that anymore and last time I had one my thoughts were along the lines of, blarg uck, I think I'm going to be sick.

    Dole whips are OK, I prefer real ice cream

    I love downtown Disney, but I love shopping.

    In appropriate makeup?:confused3 You must go to a different WDW than I go to, because the BBB doesn't do inappropriate makeup. It's not like you're sending your little girl to Bangkok. If the BBB is not your thing, that's your business, but letting your little girl get dressed up and play make-believe while strolling the Magic Kingdom is hardly inappropriate.

    You want to send little girls to the Harmony Barbershop to get the princess treatment?:confused:
