Ok, so this is not that long ago, but I would want to go back to when the Steelers defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl and Jerome Bettis and Hines Ward were the grand marshals of the parade.

TNP If you needed to save money on a trip to Disney, would you drive instead of flying?

No way, the quicker I can get to my happy place (2 1/2 hours in a plane compared to 20+ hours in a car), the happier I will be . Instead we would just go from staying in a Deluxe resort to staying in a moderate (which is what we did for our upcoming September trip).

How long does it take you to get to the Happiest Place on Earth (either driving or flying)?

It's under my user name. It's almost a toss up depending on my flights. But the weather can effect the driving a lot more than the flying believe it or not.



TNP.... When you think of Disney Parks what first comes to mind?

Haunted Mansion, it was my first ride so it's the sentimental favorite.

Would you ever travel to WDW solo?

No, I leave sunday and only plan on one trip to Disney every 2 to 3 years.

TNP: What is the one restaurant that you must go to when in Disney (TS or CS)?

We always try to get the Coral Reef. It's our favorite.

Have you even been to any Disney parks outside of the U.S? If so what is your favorite?

No, but it is about the only reason I would go to France. Fortunately the train goes there and back from England.

I would first want to go to Tokyo though.

TNP.... If you fly into Orlando as you approach MCO do you look out the window searching for anything in WDW?

I have before, but I rarely have a window seat. I might try to see some stuff this year as we fly in though.

TNP...What is the one ride that would make you upset if it was taken out of the World?

Dole Whip Floats

What is the one thing that is so overhyped that when you tried it (food or ride), you didn't think it lived up to it's name?

Definitely Dinosaur. I don't really like that whole section of AK anyway, but I was looking foward to that ride after hearing such great reviews. I thought it was awful!

TNP: What's your favorite pavilion is WS?
