What is your Disney shameful secret?

I havent been back to Disney World since 1992 when my father took me to kill time during a work trip because I was irritating him about being so close to Disney and not going to Disney. When we went he didnt let me ride anything because it would take too long. I remember walking through the castle and begging to go inside, he told me that there was no such thing as being "inside" it was a fake castle just for show. the trip was a complete nightmare and I've never forgotten how jealous I was of all of the other little kids because it felt like we were having totally different experiences.

Fast forward to today. I'm in my mid thirties, and In less than two months I'm taking my husband and my soon to be 5 year old for his birthday as a surprise, to Disney World. When I made the reservation to eat at Cinderellas Royal Table I got really emotional. Typing this out sounds absurd but it really hit me - after 27 years I'll finally be able to go inside the Castle.

    I posted this to my FB wall during one trip..
    “My Midnight Confession: while on vacation, I hoard coffee and coffee supplies in our hotel room”. My friends thought it was funny, I think it is tragic 😫

    I haven't been to a Disney park in close to 10 years. I actually lost my love for going to Disney during those almost 10 years and just got it back about 6 months ago when I took a trip to Disney Springs and remembered how much I miss going to Disney. :sad:
    Let's see, so the last time I went to Disney, I remember:
    Expedition Everest was still new
    Magic Kingdom had the old Fantasyland and Mickey's Star Land
    Epcot had the old Test Track, Wonders of Life had just recently closed.
    Hollywood Studios was still MGM
    Pleasure Island was still around

    Last trip to Disney Springs (2-3 months ago), I remembered from a DCP video you could watch the MK fireworks from the Poly beach. We found 2 empty chairs and waited. I didn't know the Electrical Water Pageant was still running, so when that started, I began to cry because it was part of the Disney magic from when I was younger that I had forgotten about. :sad:

    This upcoming trip will be the first one in a very long time and I'm super excited about it. :teeth:

    Dang ADisneyAgent! 10 gallons? Nice! :love:I have a few, admittedly, the black & red ones and some from Grand Floridian. I remember back-in-the-day when they used to have The Body Shop shampoo & conditioner in banana. Those were the days of good toiletries at Disney! Probably in the late 80's/early 90's? It smelled soo good that I wanted to eat it! The Body Shop banana products at present do not compare to how they used to be, they're different now. I should of hoarded those then. Oh well. :sad:

    I don't ever take any pictures in the parks. I rarely take pictures anywhere because I know that if I want to see a picture of something, more than likely, someone else has a better picture with a better camera on the internet somewhere. I did take pictures my first few visits, then I started to question exactly how many pictures of the castle and ToT one could need. Besides, it's not the same with digital pictures. There's something to be said for the excitement of having film developed and getting to see how they turned out. I've lost the drive to bother lol.
    Complete get this Alicefan! I was on Spaceship Earth the other day, the person in front of me took FLASH photos on their phone at every scene ... every single scene. I was like .... :rolleyes2 ... seriously???

    Your comment took me back to when I was a child, we drove to Las Vegas from LA in the early 80's and stopped at the 'Welcome to Nevada' sign for a photo, but when we had the film developed back in England the sign was missed off by the photographer so we were just posing with two metal posts. We still laugh about that now.

    Not really a shameful secret, but when I watched the part where Aladdin asks Jasmine "do you trust me?" makes clench my fists.

    Why? Because my ex-husband who I met at the Moroccan pavillion at EPCOT, dressed in attire native to the country, looked like Aladdin himself and said those same words once to me. Oh, how funny life is.

    I really don't like Tim Tracker's videos, but I saw him in line for the Yeti house at Halloween Horror Nights a few weeks ago, and I thought myself:

    "You know what, I probably would if given the opportunity..."

    In 3 trips I've never managed to ride the PeopleMover ride.

    Everything I've read suggests there should be very little queue for this. Every time I've been there seems to have been a queue going round and round the area and hardly moving - and I don't like long queues. I have also read there is a queue for another ride in the same area, but if so then I've never managed to work out which is which.

    I'll give it another try next year! I'd even use a fastpass for it if I could!

    I've never rope dropped! I like to run in the morning before the day starts and won't go out before the sun comes up because I'm afraid of the alligators :crazy2:

    After at least 15 annual trips DD and DH discovered the people mover. They took me, which required ALOT of trust as I get very motion sick. It has become our family favorite! And yes, I’ve seen it with quite lengthy lines.
