About the Parks:
What’s you Favorite Disney Park? Epcot
How many Times have you been to the Disney Parks? I’ve lost count, but somewhere over 20 times.
What’s your First Disney Memory? Sadly, I don’t remember much from my first trip, but I have many memories from my second trip. I was in 2nd grade and I remember arriving at the Polynesian and just being in awe of the flowers and waterfalls while my parents checked us in. I even remember the outfit I had on – it was a purple dress with Aladdin and Jasmine all over it!
What is your favorite Ride, Show, and Event? My favorite ride is Soarin, my favorite show is Illuminations and my favorite event is the Flower and Garden Festival.
Where is your favorite place to get your grub on? There are too many to choose from! My favorite restaurant is probably Le Cellier.
What’s your favorite snack? Easy- dole whip!
You have the whole park to yourself tell us what park it would be and plan of attack? Even though Epcot is my favorite park, I would probably choose Magic Kingdom. There is just so much to see and if I was alone I could get everything done. I would start in Tomorrowland and move counter clockwise around the park, riding every single attraction, and stopping for snacks along the way. I’d linger down Main Street at night and watch the fireworks.
Least Favorite Disney Ride or Attractions? Dinosaur! This ride still scares me!
What’s missing from the Parks? More rides at DHS and Animal Kingdom.
Which thing do you wish Disney would bring back? Alien Encounter. It was so scary, but the Magic Kingdom could use a “thrill” ride and Stitch just doesn’t do it for me.
What do you bring to the park with you? As little as possible! My camera, phone, water, Key to the World Card, DVC and Disney Visa Card (for discounts!), and chapstick.
Do you fly, drive or take a Magic Carpet to the Disney Parks? Growing up, we almost always drove (about 20 hours from NY), but now that I’m older, I prefer to fly!
What’s your most and least favorite Disney character and why? My most favorite character is Belle. Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite Disney movie growing up (and still is!). My least favorite character is the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She is so scary!
Dining Plan, OOP, or Bring Food with you? Typically the dining plan. It’s so nice to not have to worry about budgeting the right amount of money for food, and we really having it all paid for already. If we don’t do that, out of pocket.
To ADR or Not to ADR? ADR! Always, always, always ADR!
Events at the park that cost extra good idea or should be included with park admission? Undecided. I haven’t experienced either of these events (Halloween and Christmas Party), so I can’t say for sure whether or not they’re worth it.
When is your next trip to WDW or DL? Thanksgiving 2011! We are cruising on the Dream the week before then spending a week split between the Fort Wilderness Cabins and Bay Lake Tower! I cannot wait!
Everything Else Disney:
What is your favorite Disney Movie? Beauty and the Beast
Do you do any Disney Collections? I collect snow globes and my boyfriend is developing quite the Disney Pez Dispenser collection!
Have you been on a Disney Cruise or Adventures by Disney? I have been on the cruise line but not Adventures by Disney.
Ever been to DLRP or TDL? Nope. Someday, hopefully!
Finally what does Disney Mean to you? Disney means so many different things to me. When I think of Disney, I immediately am reminded of my many happy memories in the parks. I think of the chills I get from watching fireworks, the pleasure of eating my way around the World Showcase, the amazing times with friends and family members, and the happiness I get from planning a trip. Even though a trip to Disney is never completely flawless, I have nothing but tremendously happy feelings about Disney World.
