    No one should "flame" you for your opinion. BTW, there is no such thing as a bad theme park view...they are called "lagoon view", (theme park view with an obstruction). And I would only hope to get one of those rooms on my next trip!

    50's Prime Time Cafe or Whispering Canyon

    I don't get the appeal of these places and the interactions with the servers.

    BBB......I cringe and get an instant headache (the hair looks so uncomfortable) when I see the finished products......I am so sorry, but I don't get it..and I have 2 little girls who LOVE all things princesses...and my youngest begs me to do it...I refuse to let her! :scared1: Bad Mom....maybe, but they look soooo much cuter and more comfortable after doing the Pirate League Empress package IMHO!

    Animal Kingdom...we haven't been in our last 3 trips. We only like the water ride and the safari. I guess b/c we have 2 smaller zoos near us and a large one about an hour away?? Maybe we should give it another try.

    Not a fan of any "regular" buffet dinners. Regular food...like Chef Mickey, 1900, etc...we've eaten at a few and they weren't very good.

    I LOVE the food at Whispering Canyon! Haven't had a bad meal there and have eaten there many times! They waitstaff has def toned it down in the past few years..from the first time we went years ago. I remember being appalled the first time..but still went back b/c of the food!!! :)

    Character meals in general - I just don't think they are worth the exorbitant amount of money that some of them cost.

    1. Le Cellier
    2. Dining plan

    We ate at Le Cellier for the first time in 2011 after reading so many wonderful reviews of the food and whatnot. We were not impressed at all. Seating is VERY cramped :crowded: and the food was just okay. The overall atmosphere is nice, but that's it. And now since it's a signature restaurant, we will very most likely never return.

    And then the dining plan. Had only once because it was free. Every trip we've made, I've saved ALL of our receipts from meals and snacks and I add it all up when we get back home. We always spend around $500 less paying out of pocket versus what the dining plan would have cost us. The only time I'd use it is if it ws free. Other than that, for us, we'd be severly overpaying for food if we bought it.

    OK, let me see if I can tighten this thread up a bit. Things that people just don't get about Walt Disney World: Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Restaurants, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, and Downtown Disney. Does that just about cover it? I think we left out the parking lots, buses and the golf courses, any takers? How will Disney survive. :rotfl:

    Peter Pan? Really? That's just blaspheme. If you are saying worth a 90 minute wait, ok I'm with you. But with a fastpass? Tsk, tsk. (Sarcasm)

    Interactive queues.

    Maybe I'm spoiled because I usually travel during slower times of the year and I have an AP, so lines aren't something I wait in anyway, but when I go to an attraction, I don't want to be forced to play a game (Soarin) or try to get around people playing games to get inside. I just want the shortest most direct path from outside attraction to inside attraction - I don't need the extra distractions.

    On a similar note, I prefer to be entertained as opposed to being part of the entertainment itself, so I don't get the appeal of shows like Turtle Talk or Monsters Inc. If I could guarantee I wouldn't have to be a part of the show, then OK, but without that guarantee, I'm not going in.

    I agree about the vinylmation thing. I think they're awful looking.

    Putting my flame suit on here but I don't get pin trading or at least not pin trading on a large scale. I am not really a collector and can't imagine what I would do with hundreds of pins nor can I imagine spending a lot of money on them. I know, I know. Many people love it but not me. That's why I'm posting about it under this thread!

    DD6 needed a bathroom break, so we left midway through. Didn't feel a need to try again.

    I think you can safely go see Turtle Talk with Crush. He's a pretty smart turtle and likely would steer clear of the grumpy large dude in the back.

    But you raised my eyebrow when you remarked "I just want the shortest most direct path from outside attraction to inside attraction - I don't need the extra distractions."

    To me, the "extra distractions" are really the biggest part of the WDW magic. If we didn't have those, we would simply be moving from A to B, ignoring the wonderful sights along the way.:confused3
