Super tough toss up between caramel apple pie at Whispering Canyon and bananas foster bread pudding at 'Ohana.

When helping people with their trips, do you recommend Park Hopper, or not, and why?

Yes, always. Because it is nice to have the option to switch parks, especially in regards to Extra Magic Hours. Plus say you start your day at Animal Kingdom and they close at 5pm, it's nice to just be able to jump over and finish up the night at MK or one of the other parks.

If you have a DD would you consider buying a few different princess costumes and matching her up to when you are going to meet certain princesses? Say have her wear an Ariel costume when getting ready to meet Ariel??

I do have a daughter, and yes we do this. She loves it and the characters have a good time with it too!

What is your favorite drink in WDW?

If by drink, you mean an adult one, then the answer is Grand Marnier Slush in France. I'd have to say though that the jambo juice at Tusker House is in a near dead heat. I could drink buckets of that stuff!

What's your favorite snack item at WDW?

The Citrus Swirl - I can never get enough!!

You've got 2 days at WDW - do you split each day and visit all 4 parks or only pick 2 to give them your full attention?

This is hard. I would probably split a day between MK and Epcot (mostly just for Soarin') and then a day at DHS. DS LOVES Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Have you ever ridden the monorail, just to ride?

Absolutely!!! If we don't need to use the monorail to get from one place to another, we always make a full loop around the resorts at least once. It wouldn't be a trip to WDW without it!

If Fastpass+ comes into being as expected and you can FP only 3 things (attractions, meet & greets, fireworks, parades, QS meals), what are your 3 things to FP at each park?

Our tickers are close!

Okay, here we go..

Magic Kingdom: Caseys Corner (IF I could get a front table during fireworks)
Electric Light Parade and Haunted Mansion

AK: Safari, Dinosaur and Flame Tree (becuase I've never tried it... always do Tusker House - the juice!!!... and then don't need more food while we're there.

Epcot: Soarin' (of course) - Illuminations (good viewing area) and Spaceship Earth I guess. Never had much of a wait for this one.

DHS: Indiana Jones, Star Wars and the parade. (Have a thing for parades )

Because I see this all over these boards - do you like the hat at DHS or do you want to see it removed?

DisneyCrazyMama: You've got to try Flame Tree! It's pretty darn good QS food and the seating area around behind the restaurant, down by the water, with a view of EE is awesome! We always eat at TH too (partly for the juice!), usually at 8 am, then eat at Flame Tree before we leave the park at the end of the day. Couldn't miss either!

OK, here's my answer:
I actually like the hat.....I just hate when they put a stage or some other crap in front of it so that there's no point of taking a photo in front of it. (Oh lord help me, I sound like the folks who complain about the castle crane.)

Aside from your family, tickets and a camera, what's the one thing you couldn't go into a park without?

I really enjoy seeing Mr. Fredricksen. That old guy makes me smile! I haven't seen him since our trip in 2011 when he was appearing at the Pixar 25th celebration. Seeing Dug & Russell is great, but I miss Carl.

What character would/do you seek out, even if it is difficult and/or requires a sizable wait?
