    Quick google search showed it had 188 audio-animatronics which is the highest number of could find. I was thinking America sings might have more but apparently it only had 115

    Any other thoughts?

    I always said I also need to expand my World Showcase dining experiences - Germany is always a "must do" for me, as is Tangierine Cafe. I slowly ate other places over they years, as I reminded myself to do so - Chefs de France, in Italy back when it was still Alfredo's, and treated a friend to Teppan Edo as a "congrats for passing the Sgt's exam". Also used to eat at the QS Japanese place when it was something that starts with a "Y", and Le Cellier a long time ago, back when still 1 table service. I think - for me personally - it's a question of wanting to get food I CAN'T get near me at home, or it's very hard to get. So - places like Italy and China just don't cut it. But I realize I should still work on expanding my reach (and my waistline). :o

    I've only been twice, so there's a lot I haven't done. Of what I wanted to do, here's the top five, but no particular order amongst them:

    1) Toy Story Mania
    2) Tom Sawyer's Island
    3) Made it around the World Showcase
    4) Done any of the non-park activities in the Resort like mini golf or horseback riding
    5) The movie stage shows - Lion King, Nemo, Beauty and the Beast.

    Honorable mention - I've heard so much 'hating' on Stitch that now I want to go on it just to see what it is on the inside.

    We LOVE Stitch! Sure, it's weird. It's out of place. BUT it's cold, it's dark, and I mean IT'S STITCH.

    Been on 9 trips with my kids, so we've done most things.

    1) Tom Sawyer Island - no desire whatsoever
    2) Swiss Family Treehouse - same reason as above
    3) Rafiki Planet Watch - never got around to it
    4) mini-golf - always on our plans but never do it
    5) Wilderness Explorers - kids too old now

    We finally did Tom Sawyer Island this past trip and it was a major highlight for my kids (5 and 7)! Definitely recommend it for kids that age.

    If I'm limiting it to just rides/attractions inside the parks and not including any other onsite activities like tours and restaurants:

    (1) Hall of Presidents, although I think we're going to try this in November
    (2) Ellen's Energy Adventure
    (3) Kali River Rapids
    (4) Tom Sawyer's Island
    (5) Swiss Family Treehouse

    I oddly agree. To me it's kind of like Beverly - I don't LIKE it, but I MUST have it, EVERY trip, just 'cause!! :)

    I suppose Stitch is worth trying just to see what all the chatter is (like Beverly, as @SorcererHeidi mentioned)

    The issue I have with it is they took a pretty cool attraction (Alien Encounter) that was deemed too scary - but what they wound up with is still a bit scary for the little kids, but then silly and dumb for adults and so instead of appealing to everyone it sort if is targeted at no one

    DD and I always do Mission Space. Although I'd love to see them update it, maybe a new mission.

    Unfortunately I have to agree with @StraightToDumbo - not because I didn't enjoy it....but because it didn't enjoy me. I think I had to sit about 10 minutes afterwards to recover. And that was the mild version!

    All I remember is puking under the monorail. Don't remember the "ride" at all.

    I've been thinking of a funny story about Alien Encounter for quite some time. I had been hearing about how "jumpy scary" it was for a long time, and planned to see it with a bunch of friends at MVMCP who were down for one of the big "Gatherings" we used to do - hundreds of Disney fans meeting up for a week of fun. Well - I had gotten sick earlier in the evening, so was delayed arriving at MK and the party, but knew I could catch up with friends later, since we had meets carefully planned all evening (with places/times) during MVMCP. I decided to do AE myself, since they had already done it as a big group earlier in the evening. I sat right next to a huge "biker type" dude - bandana, long beard, vest, tats all over - pretty ferocious-looking. When the alien broke out of this container, I jumped and screamed like a little girl, eliciting a huge chuckle from Biker Dude. When the alien licked his head, he jumped too (didn't scream though - gotta give him props for that!), and I stifled my chuckles as best I could. When exiting, he turned around, and in a huge, gruff voice he said "Har, har, har, - it was pretty funny when you jumped and screamed, lady!". I looked him square in the eye, drew myself up to my fluffiest, and said "Yeah, it was funny when you jumped too, dude!!!". After a flash of anger on his face, he chuckled guiltily, smiled embarassedly, and slunk out. Hee Hee Hee. Always makes me laugh to remember that!! :)
