I can't stand Snow White! When she's singing especially... just... no.

I was very underwhelmed by Fantasmic!

And speaking of other park things: I really miss Alien Encounter! Anyone else have fond memories of that one? Stitch was just a terrible attempt at PC'ism.

I watched The Lion King so many times when I was a kid, I probably STILL have it memorized...

Nothing shameful about missing AE... It was awesome. And I'm right there with you on being underwhelmed by Fantasmic... But then again I've never been a big fan of parades and I feel like half the draw of Fantasmic is the parade of characters on boats.

I would recommend going to GMR in the middle of the day. That should help your chances for getting the Western version (it usually runs between 10-4, but times can vary based on the time of year).

Aw, I'm sorry you don't like female gangsters! But I'm glad they are there (as it's one of my favorite things to do at GMR).

If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

1. I look forward to park popcorn as much as the parks themselves. The first thing I do when I get into each park is find the popcorn vendor. At MK, the order of events goes: Through the turn styles, through the left tunnel under the railroad tracks, stop at the popcorn stand in front of Guest Services, look up at castle.

2. I have never been to any of the live shows at any of the parks because they'll take valuable time out of my ride and strolling-through-the-park time. I take that back, I saw Fantasmic once and was disappointed.

3. Add me to the list of those who have never had a Dole Whip.

FutureWorld was the first place I ever went in Disney World and I didn't understand the pavillion concept and I found the closed doors of the buildings intimidating (in the 'I don't think we're supposed to go in there' way)therefore I didn't go into any of the Future World buildings except Living Seas and Test Track. I just walked around wondering where the rides and attractions were. I left disappointed and then when I started doing some planning for a return trip I discovered all the things we had missed. It just proves that you need to do your research before you go.

It was much better on subsequent visits, but I still don't love EPCOT like I do the other parks.

1. I book on-site and deluxe resorts because when I was a kid my dad insisted we stay at Super 8 or Motel 6.

2. I have a secret crush on "Belle"

3. I get choked up during the fireworks and most other Disney shows.

4. During the last night of our last Disney Cruise I told my son it was time to go back to the stateroom because we had to go home the next day. He started crying and looked up at me with those big brown eyes, "But I dont want to leave Mickey's boat!" - Next thing I knew I was in tears.

Took DS11 and DD9 to see "Brave" today (I know, I'm late! but it was a busy summer). Even now with kids that old, I teared up like you on the cruise.:) We're sailing again on the Magic this November and I'm sure I'll be tearing up again!

Hey, I can admit it. Nothing wrong with a man admitting that he cries. I'm not typically emotional, but something about the music and the magic etc...

The only other time I ever remember crying was when I had lost my job and we were moving, my wife and I sitting in our living room with packed boxes all around. Felt like I had lost everything, and we both cried.

Thanks, yes that was in November 2002 so I've had 2 jobs since then. I appreciate the sentiment.

My secret is I love IASW. For me its really not the ride. My grandfather was a mechanical engineer and back in the day when IASW was high tech my grandfather was amazed by the engineering. As he got older and could no longer travel to WDW he would always say "Ride Its A Small World for me." So now its a family tradition that we MUST ride at least once. We usually end up teary eyed by the time the ride ends because we end up taking a trip down memory lane rather than paying attention to the ride.
