Wow...

Hi, my name is Amber, and there are a few things I don't like about disney.

(Everyone else: Hello, Amber!)

- I liked stitch before he was cool. It drives me crazy how he's everywhere now.
- I have more fun in the parks with my brother than with my husband. I have to MAKE DH have fun, and it kills my vacation.
- I never got the whole Pooh thing. Not for people over 8 years old, anyway.
- I can not STAND Tinker Bell. She's teaching kids to be self-centered and that's not ok with me.
- Epcot is the reason I became a teacher. (Physics)
- My favorite disney movie is Enchanted, and I made a dress that looks like Giselle's green flowery one from the "That's how you know" scene.
- I still say MGM, I don't care who owns it. Correct me if you dare.
- I waited 3 and a half hours for fantasmic once, and I got escorted in by a cast member with a "Princess of the Day" certificate
- Pin sharks piss me off. Like, I actually want to punch them in the face.
- My fave ride is Soarin'. My husband is going to Olrando for business in JUNE, and I'm getting a one-day pass just so I can ride it again

I think I'm done. Sure I'll think of more after a good night's rest

Edit: Here's a couple more

- My favorite resort is All-Star Movies. I've stayed in POR, which was just ok, and CS (which was absolutely MISERABLE!). But in all-star... get a room right by the fantasia pool and you're right next to the dining hall AND the bus stops. Plus, you get great scrapbook photos for all the movie memorabilia and, really, what time do you spend at the hotel, anyway? (We usually eat breakfast, do the early park, grab early lunch, change to late park, late dinner, get to resort at midnight.) AAAAAND, now I'm rambling. To sum up - I like cheap hotels, and some of the expensive ones aren't that impressive anyway!
- I am mortally terrified of the Dinosaur ride. It's the only ride where I have trouble with my "suspension of disbelief", and it makes me want to wet myself. I scream the whole time. (So does my dad, a 47-year-old 6'3 250lb preacher, who looks like he's about 30. CLASSIC!)
- Turky leg? Bleh. You couldn't PAY me $7 to buy a turky leg. (Well, maybe you could. I'd throw it away and get a pin XD)
- In January, Disney gave me Quadricepts Tendinitis in my right knee (at 22!). When I got my treatment, a shot (shudder), I said "Darn you, Mickey!". My doctor thought I'd lost my mind!
- My cat is named after Kermit the Frog (which is Disney, now, right?) and Horatio Cane from CSI: Miami. His proper name is "Kermit Horatio Shrewsberry", but we call him Kermie!
- I knew I was gonna be some kind of scientist when I was 4 and reading a book on "when I grow up" with an accompanying read-along Audio Tape. Ludwig von Drake was messing with some test tubes on one page and there was some REALLY cool sound effects in the background. I was like "Well, that sounds good." and told my parents I wanted to be a scientist when I grew up! (I'm now teaching physics at a local high school and teaching science labs at the University I graduated from less than a year ago.) Thanks, Prof. von Drake!

Kay, I have to get ready for work now.

Guess that was a hijack also...

I don't really concider this to be shameful, but I hate the pooh voice. I would rather have pins stuck in my eyes than listen to it.

I'll admit it, I'm a fan of drinking my way around WS too but shame on you for faking earrings!!! **I'd be lying if I said I didn't do that too though!

A pin shark is a person that will try to trade you for your valuable pins for the sole purpose of making money. Think of them as a vacuum salesmen. They will overstate the value of their pin that they're trading you and understate or completely ignore the fact that they're ripping you off.

These people often insist on 2-for-1 trades. The pin they're offering is so rare and hard to find, you see. /sarcasm

Some of them even train their kids to guilt people into trading with them, or searching the green lanyard CMs for stuff the adults can't get to. (These kids are called "guppies". Cute, but sick.)

Anyways, it's supposed to be a fun thing, not a "take advantage of little kids and newbies" thing. See what I mean?

I have no fun watching illuminations. My DH and I just like to make fun of the big ball in the water.

I really really really want to be a nurse in the Magic Kingdom someday. Just don't know if I can stand the Florida weather year round.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Carousel of Progress. DH takes a nap.

Great thread

1. I cry at everything at Disney - Lion King Show, the MK parade, Fantasmic, Wishes, seeing someone else get a dream...you get the picture. AND I am so not like that "in real life."

2. I spend a lot of time at certain rides worrying if I will fit on them (I'm a big girl) so I can't always relax and enjoy the ques.

3. EPCOT bores me, especially world showcase.

4. I don't like kids as a whole (except my niece) but at Disney, I love them all and want to keep them believing in magic.

5. I have friends in the CAstle show and the Nemo show.

Finally, a thread just for ME!

1) I think the Stitch wake up call is OBNOXIOUS
2) I have to control my desire to stick out my foot when a kid in heelies wizzes by
3) I think the GF rooms are gawdy and too floral
4) Disney is not a recognized school of interior design. You people know who you are.
5) Every time I see a salty turkey leg I think of big old Henry VIII
6) I wouldn't be caught dead wearing a lime green mickey
7) Once we went to WDW for 6 days and spent 5 days at the waterparks and only ONE DAY in the parks, even though we did all 4 in that one day
8) DF will only go to WDW if the Red Sox are playing in Tampa and we book at least 2 rounds of golf.
9) I think many parents of toddlers seriously over-estimate their kids' tolerance for heat and humidity and their ability to independently recall beyond the bar of their strollers the 'once in a lifetime' trip.
10) I hate the buses. Crammed with less-than-fresh less-than-happy folks (none of you, of course!)

That's it for now... stay tuned for more!

I love this thread!!

Add me to the turkey leg phobics. I actually have to turn my head if I see someone walking by gnawing on them. It's like Jurassic Park and makes me slightly nauseous. I'm glad I'm not alone

I love Fantasmic and dance along with Mickey much to my family's embarassment.

When riding the monorail, I always sing the Simpson's monorail song and speak along with the announcer in Spanish.

I hate the look of the Polynesian. We call it the Tinderbox because it looks like a giant pile of kindling.

The few times I've been to the GF I was not impressed.

I love Epcot-Future World and could easily spend a full day wandering through Innoventions (both East and West).

I LOVE Spaceship Earth and am deathly afraid that the changes will ruin part of my joy.

And the most shameful secret is that I have yet to figure out what "EE" stands for? Can someone please help?
