    I agree that Spaceship Earth is not worth the hype.
    Soaring is a California based attraction. This was a headliner when CA Adventure opened in Anaheim. All of the locations in the movie are located in CA. I was shocked when this ride was copied in Orlando with no changes. I enjoyed the attraction the first couple of times, but do not think it is worth waiting longer than 15 minutes for. Also in CA, they have let the attraction go a bit. It is in need of maintenance as there are visible scratches on the margins of the screen.
    I am happy that MK scrapped Mr. Toad. I wish DL would do the same thing. It has no magic. Just some tacky cardboard cutouts and a lot of noise. I would like to see it gone and replaced with Mickey's Philarmagic. Shockingly to me, it often had a line.

    The entire imagination pavilion! Not interesting to me at all. I was actually annoyed by it.

    I love the AK and Soarin and Epcot for though is the following
    1. Jungle Cruise-find it a little lame
    2. Tiki Room-this one really grates on my nerves
    3. Muppet's 3D-I cannot stand those old men in the balcony.
    4. The Hoop dee do Revue-The show wasn't bad but there are better shows in the park that you don't have to pay an arm and leg for and the food was terrible when we went. The ribs were burnt and they misjudged the food and didn't have enough the time we went and they didn't do anything to compensate us for that. But my son did get to go up on stage and get a certificate.

    i don't really like Winnie the Pooh ride at MK and there is always a big line.

    I do miss Snow White's Scary Adventures though.

    I think for me it's TSMM. I mean, it's fun, I guess. But, I don't understand the mad rush and subsequent lines. If I can get a FP or a short wait time, I'll ride, but if we don't ride it, no biggie. :confused3

    Me too!
    The really sad thing is my family went to DCA opening week, rode it.. My whole family LOVED it! Me on the other hand, I didn't and still don't get it..
    Yet I'm forced to ride it everytime we go... It keeps getting worse.. At least this time, I get to wait with the baby!!! YAY!!
    I couldn't believe when the brought it over the Epcot.. I thought Indy would have been a better add to WDW over soarin..

    The butterfinger cupcake at Starring Rolls. I anxiously awaited my opportunity to try it and was sorely disappointed. I'm a sweet-dessert kind of girl, but this was way too sweet for me. It was also impossible to eat because the chocolate "cap" on the frosting was so hard. We couldn't bite it because it was too big and we couldn't cut it with the plasticware. So sad :sad2:

    I thought I was the only one! It's just shops and restaurants. I guess I expected more.

    I like Buzz and Woody but I don't love TSMM. I've done it and it's fun. I'd do it if I happen to get a FP at a convenient time or if I manage to get up, caffeinate and get there in time for it to not be a really long wait. It's cute and I like it but I don't love it.

    Turkey legs...I cant handle the red color inside.

    Duffy ??

    and the main street bakery cinnamon rolls..... just not impressed. I make homemade ones a lot better.

    The food - any restaurant I've eaten at WDW (admitedly nowhere near all of them), would be considered over priced and mediocre if it were off property. I do, however, like the ambience of Disney dining and the character dining is really enjoyable for my son (and me too!).

    I am so glad the other people were thinking the same as me...
    1. Turkey legs, really...they are pink! Not for me.
    2. Peter pan, why is the line always so long? Totally overrated.
    3. Duff? How does he fit in? Just stick with the mouse.

    Cinderella's Royal Table-for the price, the food should at least be edible.
    'Ohana- Overcooked chunks of meat...really not impressive
    Fantasmic- I thought this show would be amazing. It really wasn't that good. I wished we had ridden ToT again instead.

    Duffy - we haven't a clue what or who or why Duffy is.

    The wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon. Impressive, yes. Fun, not really.

    Dole whips, hands down. Nothing you can't get at a shopping mall. I just don't get what all the fuss is about.

    That's from the smoke. I haven't had the ones at Disney, but have had them elsewhere and do them myself at home. Even at 180 degrees internal temp, they keep that color.

    Toy Story M.M.- I like it, it's fun...but not worth killing each other over for a FP or waiting more than 40 minutes in line.

    Duffy

    Lights! Motor! Action! ....Blech!

    Festival of the Lion King at AK- I don't like the set-up of the show

    1. California Grill- The view can't be beat, but on the 2 times I've eaten here, service and food have been mediocre at best. Certainly not worth the prices they charge. I won't be back for a 3rd try. So overrated.

    2. Dining Plan- I think some of the food choices and quality in general went down with the introduction of the dining plan. Then when they threw in "free dining", it really went downhill. I also hate being asked every time I purchase food if I am on the Dining Plan. If I were, I'd let you know.

    3. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique- I absolutely hate the makeup they put on the little girls. I think they are prettier with a natural face. Plus in the summer, some of the girls look miserable in their Cinderella dresses and sweaty makeup faces.

    4. The monorail- It just makes getting to and leaving MK longer if you're driving.
