Re: Unique First Trip Opportunity

Well I'm bumping this thread again. Lol it's been almost 2 years since I started this. Anyway I'm up to the last few hours before I know if I'll be able to bring my fiancé home to Florida and if I get to take her to Disney. Her appointment at the embassy is in 4 hours. Tired once the beginning of th...

Re: EPCOT Imagination

I can vividly remember being no older than 4 or 5, getting an invisible UV-ink handstamp when leaving the park for a nap or something, then coming back and doing Journey into Imagination. There was black light everywhere in there and I felt like an integral part of it with my glowing hand stamp. Ab...

Re: What ride/attraction won't you ride?

There's nothing I WON'T ride lol but the Astro Orbitor and other such ones I don't care to ride or wait in the line. Mostly it's the wait that makes it less desirable to go on. If there weren't those lines I would ride on them all....

Actually thinking about it, the Tea Cups, it's fun but... ya no.

Re: Some EPCOT ride music has gone

Ya you can sometimes find them on amazon or ebay. If it's no longer commercial music there's other places. There's a project called The WDW Forever Project to keep a place of the no longer available content.

Re: EPCOT Imagination

I understand the need to update rides but I agree the new version has less to do with Imagination but with senses. I wish they would re-open the top area. That was a blast!

Re: What is your favorite line to wait in and why?

My absolute favorite would have to be Pirates of the Caribbean. My first trip to WDW I just could not believe how far it was until you reached the actual ride itself!!! It puts you in the right mood by the time you get into the boat :) Tower of Terror is a very close second...love the feel of going...

Re: Funniest Event you ever wittnessed at Disney

I posted this in another thread then realized I do have a funny story lol. When I was taking my late 80's(I was wrong in last thread not mid 80's lol) grandmother to Disney she had several of the colorful sayings that they have. One time in line for food she said to the CM "I'm so hungry my stomach ...

Re: Calling it MGM *GASP*

Do you remember what people's reactions were? I would be curious if most would take the time to listen or just dismiss it because they didn't want to take the time, or they didn't believe her. She was in her mid-80's at that time must were acted genuinely interested. But never know hehe. Or just be...

Re: Iron Man Thrill Ride Coming to Hong Kong

Wasn't Disney HK not actually owned by Disney but a franchise? I thought so but probably wrong. It's not owned by the parent company. OF course I didn't read the article :-P

Re: Hotel choices in France, Japan, Hong Kong?

Unless you want to shell out the money to stay on property in HK just get a cheap hotel located around any of the islands. By their Metro Subway it's fast and easy to get to the park. I liked the theme rail car between the stop and Disney lol nothing big but I liked the touch. Kowloon is at the end ...

Re: New ride closure rumors

I've thought about making a trip back to Disney Hong Kong, just me musing lol been 4 years since I went last.

I never liked ToonTown, probably because I don't have kids and it was put in after I was out of my kiddie phase even though I still adore WDW. It wasn't a place with many memories growing up.
