What a good idea this thread is! They say confession is good for the soul so here goes


Iím not a big Toy Story fan.

Disney has RUINED Eeoyre by making him far too happy (heís gloomy people-thatís the point).

Epcot is my least favorite park. If it wasnít for the food I might spend a whole trip without getting around to it.

The Hall Of Presidents is a great place for a cool refreshing nap.

One of my favorite ďridesĒ is the dinning plan.

I cry when I hear Circle Of Life any time, any where.

I feed the birds even when asked not to.

I was married at WDW. Love my marriage, hate my Wedding Planner.

Maybe itís all the hype, but Christmas time at WDW isnít quite as magical as I thought it would be. This includes MVMCP.

I really miss the old Osborn light show at HS

If I could choose where to spend my last day on earth, it would be at WDW.


There, I feel better. Thanks for listening.

Too Funny!

My shameful secrets are:

When I am having a stressful day, I go to WDW in my head. Nobody I know IRL would get this.

I spend way too much time on the DIS forums.

I will wear clothing with cartoon characters on it at WDW (I have a rule about this at home. A 47YO woman just shouldn't, ya know?). Although everyone will know after PP takes a pic of me and puts it on FB.

I fantasize that I will get a job at the Haunted Mansion when I retire. I'm hoping the castmembers actually get to LIVE in the mansion.

It kinda creeps me out the way Disney owns a lot of people when they are at WDW (MYW packages) - picks them up at the airport (ME), takes them to a Disney-owned resort, provides all their food (DDP), souvenirs, takes them back to the airport. AND has them convinced that this is to that they'll have a more "magical" experience. I've always stayed off-property though. Having said that, I have a MYW pkg booked for September so I can experience the dark side.

ooh, thought of more.

I don't really like AK much.

The Circle of Life movie pisses me off.

I make my DD and DS go to Coutry Bear Jamboree everytime we go, partly just to watch them roll their eyes at me for wanting to go. For some reason the show makes me smile everytime. It's starting to grow on them too.

I don't like Dole whips, I can't wear Crocs (too wide), and I have been known to wear a fanny pack.

Some years back about a dozen college kids treated Country Bear Jamboree Christmas Edition like they were attending an actual rock concert. It was great. The audience makes or breaks shows. Those kids made for my best Country Bear Jamboree memory.

Don't like..

Fantasmic! - Would rather ride IASW 10 times in a row.
Dole Whips! - Just don't get the hype.
Never have taken the time to watch a "regular" parade. (saw "Boo to you!" last year and loved it, so all parades are on my list for this year)
... it just feels so good to get that off my chest.

I take every "Walt Disney World Resorts" pen I can get my hands on!

I took seashells from Castaway Cay on our cruise last November even though they warn you not to!!!

Plutoluvsfifi - I don't like any of the Winnie the Pooh characters. And we need to talk - how can you not like Toy Story!?!

Ooo! FUN! I want to play

I can't stand Fantasmic, I think it's a dumb show.

I'm petrified of It's Tough to Be a Bug, so I walk through and wait for my traveling partners on the other side. When a kid comes out with their parent because it scares them, I try to send brain waves to let them know that it's okay, it's scary, I don't don't like it either and I'm grown. I like to think it helps

I'm not a fan of LeCellier and I don't see what people get so worked up over. It's a steak, come to my house, I cook for you, yes?

When I go to sleep at night, I try to think about Disney World before I go to sleep because they say the last thing you think about is what you dream about. Sometimes it works!

Whenever I'm somewhere...anywhere...and someone starts talking about WDW, I have to bite my tongue. That is of course until they start saying false information, then I butt in and gently correct them. I embarass my boyfriend.

I've not riden the most of the "headliner" rides - space mountain, big thunder mountain railroad, splash mountain, mission space, test track, tower of terror, rock and roll roller coaster or Everest. I am a ride chicken so these remain unridden for me (and probably always will).

When left to my own devices I do a circle of 4 rides - Buzz, TTA, Stitch and Carousel of Progress; I rarely leave tomorrowland in the MK.

I can't stay in a value resort, I just can't.

I spend too much time planning what I'm going to eat, looking at pictures of what I'm going to eat, making spreadsheets of where I'm going to eat, eating, taking pictures of what I eat and then writing about what I ate.

I love WDW so much that when I'm having a bad day, I go onto the disneyworld site and "plan" a trip. I just don't hit the actual "book now" button.

Fun! I too would love to see a stroller free day at each park!

I think all the WDW Park restaurants are mediocre at best...especially Epcot (which is still my favorite park despite the restaurants).

People who congregate in the middle of walkways without moving to the side make me crazy.

Can't get into that pin thing.

Hate paying $8 for a Margarita.....but I do!!!

I say that there should be a dog day at each park once a year. It could be announced well in advance so that those who wouldnít enjoy sharing Disney with canine tourists could avoid it. I do confess that missing my dog is the hardest part of a WDW trip for me.

DCL should offer a few doggie cruises as well. Last year we cruised with friends who were missing their dog also. One of them saw Mickey and Pluto and asked the CM who was with them why Mickey could have his dog on the ship but she couldnít. They walked away from her with out answering. How rude.

Good Morning Plutoluvsfifi! I admit, it was I that asked Pluto and Mickey's handler why I wasn't allowed to bring my Golden on board. I was told it was because Mickey had a dog house for Pluto. Acting like a 10 year old, I taunted back that my dog could just stay in my stateroom with me and he didn't need a dog house. The handler smiled a strange smile and quickly wisked Mickey and Pluto away from me.

I also "book" pretend trips to WDW and for cruises. Last week I "booked" a repositioning DCL cruise to Europe followed by a 10 day Baltic. Grand total in a cat. 5 for 2 adults and 1 child was in the ballpark of $20,000 (not including the flights back home!). We're not going!

I love value resorts the best (Music and POP Century are my favorites). They are much more whimsical and "Disneylike" to me.

I too have never tasted a Dole Whip (though I want to).
I have never done IASW due to the fear that I will never get the song out of my head.
My husband loves the Boardwalk and I get nothing but bored.
