I always rope drop at the Magic Kingdom and start at Tomorrowland, working my way counter-clockwise around the park. I’ve heard clockwise starting in Adventureland is the more popular option, but I just feel weird if I don’t start with a few rides on Space Mountain, then Carousel of Progress and Peoplemover first thing.

I once had a TA named Sherry Farmer who was once married to Bill.....
who said to me that he was indeed very 'Goofy" -::yes::

(shes now divorced from him))

Then one day a Guest at my job gave me a new shirt that read, "Sherry's Place" on it and I thought it would make a nice gift for her......


until someone discretely reminded that to please not as "Sherry's Place" is also a name for a Brothel in Las Vegas......:scratchin


OOPPS!!:blush:

    I am a huge fan of all things Disney. This tread got me thinking. I've got a few love/hates/never on my personal list:
    - I will never stay at All-Star anything. ever.
    - I stayed at Poly, didn't love it as much as I thought I would
    - I love the people mover - just cooling, calming get away
    - I don't love fireworks. Never have, never will.
    - I never save seats for parades, shows, fireworks etc. I'll risk the slim pickings and most of the time I can see just fine. (and I don't ever video tape any of the above)
    - I've never done a rope drop (never will, only been into a park early for dining)
    - I really don't mind Disney transportation (living in a big city get you primed for crowded busses)

    Many years ago (‘92) on our honeymoon in WDW, my then-brand new husband and I went on the Living Seas Aquarium ride in Future World.
    For anyone too young to recall LSA, think: Haunted Mansion doom buggies for four people on the same type of moving carpet-y thing that, in LSA, snakes through a glass tunnel going through - what felt like the -ocean. Fish and assorted sea creatures were everywhere - all around us.
    Of course, all I heard as the CM closed our buggy door was an enthusiastic, “And we’ve got some great lemon sharks”. My ears heard “great some-colour shark” and I thought, “white, great white sharks”, so I started sinking into my seat, and covered my eyes. Then there were Disney-esque bubbles around our glass tunnel, when these dissipated, there were fishes looking in at us and all I saw was a dorsal fin, and I fainted!
    Must have as the next thing I remember is lying on the lawn in the hot Florida sunshine, - and the nice paramedics arriving. So, I stopped a ride at Disney!

    Just watched Peter Pan for the first time (that I can remember) and came away thinking about how people have a problem with Song of the South?

    1. I love learning about Disney history via books, podcasts, etc.

    2. I dislike Disney dole whips. I prefer the ones @ the dole plantation served with fresh pineapple 🍍

    3. I tricked my daughter into riding the mission space orange because it was the shorter line. I also reassured this guy in line that it wasn’t that bad even though it was my first time riding. Yep...I’m a jerk. She was fine and laughs about it... now 😁

    My new shameful secret that I’m only sharing here... I went to WDW several times solo (4) before I met and married my husband. Now, 8 years later, I have an opportunity to go to DLR solo when my husband has a work conference (he will be an hour+ away from DLR so I’ll head there alone in a separate hotel when his working conference starts). And I’m nervous about going alone. Me, a self-proclaimed independent 40-something woman, is nervous. I’ll get over it but I’m a little ashamed.

    Ah, here's a shameful secret/unpopular opinion for me--I can't stand Disney's Peter Pan. He's! Kind of a jerk!! And then yes there are some things in that movie that are...not good. I like the ride alright but I skipped it on the last two trips to WDW and I really only rode it in Disneyland Paris for the sake of completeness. I do want to see the interactive queue in WDW, though.

    I'd probably feel differently if it were one of the movies I grew up watching and re-watching, but it wasn't. Peter Pan for me as a kid was Robin Williams in Hook.

    Your secret is safe with us!

    A friend and I snuck over to DLR a couple of times in the late 70's/early 80's when we were at the Anaheim convention center for work.
    I have vague but fond memories of those quick visits. My first ride on the Matterhorn stands out. :scared1: As does the Haunted Mansion and PoC.

    One thing you will notice is the different environment around DLR. It really explains Walt's desire for a large piece of land in Florida. I recall staying in this rocket/sci-fi themed motel just down the street from the convention center. I am sure that the area has changed a bit since then.
    Wishing you a pixiedust: visit!
