I had awful heat stroke while on my honeymoon dining at Bistro de Paris (now ?Monsieur Paul)
I was really sick and put it this way had to leave an item of clothing in the restroom bin... then had to pretend that nothing happened for the rest of the meal.

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!

    I don’t like MK at all. I grew up going to DL and it’s just bleh to me and a pain to get to. :confused3 :)

    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!
