After 7 trips...

I've never been to Tom Sawyer Island

I've never went on Rafiki's planet watch

I've never seen the Lights, Motor, Action show.

I'm still afraid of the cast members at the Haunted Mansion...I mean creepy butlers and maids

I love Journey into Imagination...I'll admit I loved the original more, but I still love this one

Jim Henson's Muppet 3D is hands down my favorite ride...I feel like I'm on a pilgrimage every time I go :

My heart still pounds the first time I walk down Main Street each trip

Mine are REALLY bad....

I bought my son one of the expensive monorail sets....because I wanted it.

I once put together a Disney trip for my husband's whole family. I made a strict schedule and told my DH that I would leave his pregnant sister behind if she couldn't keep up.

....and others that I am just to ashamed to say.

I'd rather go to Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon than into the main parks...

It will always be Wedway People Mover and MGM to me. They can't make me call it anything else.

I really don't care what they do with Mickey and Minnie's houses. Or for the whole of ToonTown for that matter. I always skipped it anyway.

Meet and greets are a waste of time but at least they keep the lines shorter for the actual rides. I can't imagine waiting in all those lines to meet characters.

Disclaimer: I might wait in a short line to see Phineas and Ferb and Perry.

My turn!

1. I HATE dolewhips and turkey legs.

2. Never seen fantasmic and really dont care to

3. LOVE the animal kingdom park almost as much as the magic kingdom

4. We sorta have to special order a cake now whenever we go to Disney regardless of if we are celebrating anything or not. They are just too darn good to pass up

5. If I cant do a character breakfast it ruins my trip

6. Passing through the Disney World sign as you drive up turns me into a 5 year old.

I have more but just cant think of them all right now.

I love this!
1. I loved Alien Encounter and think it would have been better placed at HS
2. I could drink the Lemon Citron slush from France every day (but that might make me an alcoholic)
3. I hate waiting for people to load their camper-sized strollers onto the buses. Do you really need to wait the the bus is stopped to START unloading and folding it down???
4. On our last trip, my boyfriend and I went to the vet clinic at AK every morning to see what was on the schedule for the day, and plan to on our next trip.
5. The only reason I go to MK is for MNSSHP or MVMCP

I have always loved the Carousel of Progress. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy, like going home for the holidays.

I would love to live on Main Street and be able to look out my window and watch the families moving up and down the street.

I hate the '50s Prime Time Cafe. I never felt comfortable with the waitresses nonsense.

Getting tired of Indiana Jones stunt show. Would love to see something fresh.

Never understood AK. Does it want to be a Disney theme park or a zoo. I am not sure it is suceeding as either.

I have never gotten the Swiss Family Treehouse. But I have a secret liking for the Tiki Birds. Go figure!

i still call mk "disney" cuz that's all there was when we started going.
i think most of the food at mgm (can't get into calling it dhs) stinks.
ak feels like icky dirty disney (needs a bath dirty not the other kind of dirty).
we've brought rum into mk and it makes those dole whips a WHOLE lot better.

It will always be the Wedway People Mover and MGM to me too! And speaking of MGM I don't like it...and I don't like Animal Kingdom either, I don't really know why...in fact the last visit to the world in November I didn't visit either of them. I love the Magic Kingdom....except for Toontown, but it's good for the little ones I guess. I also love Epcot...but I liked the old Illuminations better than the one they have now. I also liked the way Downtown Disney (Pleasure Island) used to be.

have to agree that the loss of pleasure island sure did put a hurt on the adult disney goers.
