I absolutely second this! We ate there for the first time on our departure day and we really enjoyed the food. It's a great sandwich shop!!!

Re: My Favorite Disney Walks

My favorite walk is the morning walk from our room in the Alligator Bayou, winding through the lush growth, following the paths across the bridge, past the swimming pool, and over to the Old Mill Food Court. I wish I was walking there right now.

Re: Which attraction will you never get sick of?

Nice Post!

I will never tire of:

MK -- Haunted Mansion; Pirates of the Caribbean
Epcot -- ?? (None strike me at moment. Old Spaceship Earth maybe. But not current one.)
DHS -- Tower of Terror
AK -- Kilimanjaro Safari

That's my list.

Re: Scary Thought

We've all had it before... Some families go every year (I've gone every year the past 4 years) and some go every other year. They have planned trips and it's something to look forward to. But the scary thought is when you don't know when your next trip to WDW will be. Our DS is due to be born in th...

Re: What Character Meal is your personal favorite?

For me, Crystal Palace is my absolute favorite character meal, followed closely by Chef Mickey's. They both just embody what is so magical about Disney.

On a different note: I was struck by how few posts stated Cinderella Castle since it is one of the hardest tickets to procure.

Re: What's the FIRST thing you do at WDW?

TikiTikiRoom, things have changed since we've had children. But now that they're getting a little older,we're returning to our old schedule. Generally, we take the bus straight over to Animal Kingdom and I try to time my ADR for the Rainforest Cafe as close to when I think we'll arrive. (It's a fun...

Re: Favorite Park Music

Another of my absolutely favorites is the older pre-set music for Illumination: Reflections of Earth. It was such a varied set of music, culminating in a piece by John Williams. Beautiful. My favorite song in the group is a piece titled They Were Dancing Barefoot. I ordered CD from Israel just to ge...

Re: Favorite Park Music

Favorite songs are Main Street Area music. More exact:

Before the Parade Passes By followed immediately by
Put On Your Sunday Clothes

If the mood is right, that duo will make me cry!

Re: Disney Dinning Plan Your Thoughts?

We had the free dining in January and boy did we eat a lot. It was nice to not have to worry about food or money or anything like that. But at the same time - we all ate way more than we normally would have... Belle1082, I had the same observations. I liked the idea of having most of our food paid ...

Re: Ticket Fraud at WDW?

What we are saying is that they don't seem to use the system all the time for all tickets, possibly because it costs money and it's effectiveness is marginal. My feeling is -- I don't think Disney is that concerned with ticket fraud with regards to park hoppers or day tickets. Only APs. Consider th...

Re: WDW cracking down on FP return times

I don't think the new change will adversly affect very many astute Disney-philes that frequent this (or other) Disney fan site. I've been reading so many posts here at Subsonic and it is plainly obvious a great deal of preperation goes into a WDW trip prior to arrival. A GREAT DEAL of prep!!! When m...
