  • Disney was a terrific experience when my son was 10 and 11. We went to both Land and World. By the time we went to World, he was of course older and the rides at Universal were more his cup of tea but it is hard to beat the atmosphere of Disney.

  • I went to DW in the early '90s, and Tokyo DisneySea in 201x (don't remember the exact year anymore....might have actually been 2010).  Both magical experiences, definitely.  I couldn't help but smile once I let go of the adult cynicism.

    Hearing the Disney characters singing and speaking in Japanese was a bit of a brain-breaker, though.  Especially Sebastian.  Japanese dialog with a hint of Jamaican accent is incredibly strange.

  • I need to plan a trip to see the Star Wars exhibit at DL. It's only a few hours drive from here.

  • Took the family to Orlando back in the late 90's.  We had a family relative who worked at the park, so we could get in free.  After one day at the park, the kids decided rather than go back, they'd rather go back to Sea World for a second day.

    I have never been to Disney World. I don't really care for the weather in Florida. I'm spoiled from Disneyland in Cali. However, I would love to see if the atmosphere in Disney World is the same. Also, I'm missing out on the Epcot Center!

    It is so good and well worth the drive! When I went, you had to make a reservation to enter. So, make sure you check ahead of time.

    This is amazing! I can say that I'm officially "jealous"!

    Many years ago, I was thinking about working at the park so I could get in free. :) When I first got my annual pass, it was only a couple hundred dollars. Awe, the good ol' days!

  • When I was a kid up until the later teenage years my grandfather lived in Lake Wales, FL which was a short drive from Disney World.  Back then there was only the one park and just about every time we would visit my grandfather we would go to DW. I got to see Epcot being built during this time.  After he passed I had not been to DW again for about 20 years later when I took my wife as she had never been.  At this point all the parks were complete and we visited them all except for the water park.  I wouldn't consider myself a Disney geek but I do enjoy going to the parks, especially when they aren't packed.  And we do have several Disney coffee mugs of which the picture below is my favorite.

    Lovin' the mug! Especially the part that says, "from morning to night".

  • I just took a vacation at Disney World last month. It was fun. Epcot is still my favorite park. Magic Kingdom is a close second. Visiting Disney is expensive and something we can only afford to do every few years. It is always worth it though. One of these days I do want to take a trip out to California and visit Disneyland. I would like to see how it compares to Disney World.

    Maybe we can swap tips for the two parks since I have never been to Disney World and you have not been to Disneyland?

  • I enjoyed Disney, but its also stressful waiting in lines and dealing with crowds.
