wink.gif Eeks. Lump it all in with crazy soccer moms and raging hockey dads. Do we really NEED to remmeber that it's all suppose to be FUN for the kids?

My folks always had a thing for Florida and took us for many years when we were small. I DO remember some long lines but no one pummeling anyone else. It's kind of like road rage at Disney land but it's line rage. Jeesh. Get a grip psychos.

How many times have you been? My parents love it too. I've been a grand total of four times... I think that's a little excessive

Oh man,I don't really want to say! Okay, well, Florida more than ten (but certain parts are really nice), Disney world or land or whatever, um, prolly about yeah, four or five. You can only go so many times! I remember really loving Small World and all the freaky singing dancing dolls, and my faves: Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and Thunder Mountain. Whooooa. I'm having flashbacks!

I think it can be fun for kids but if it's as insane (and expensive) as it sounds like it's gotten, I don't think it's worth it. I'd rather take my kids out in the bush somewhere camping and canoing or something. Away from throat-throttling psycho-moms.

Wow they are even crazier than my parents! Holy Schniekies... Yeah if I ever had (adopted) kids, I would not take them either.

Yeah, it's weird, they love Florida and they also love northern Ontario cottage country. Well, they're just weird. i've known this all along.....

WHY are people going so insane with rage? What's the underlying problem here? I mean, when you start to flip out about standing in line or driving along the road, there's definetly something a little wonky going on in your head. is it that we're such a world of conveniences now, well some places anyway, that we can't stand it if we're inconvenienced in any way? I just don't get it.


starlagurl
Yeah, that would be my analysis as well...

Also the "customer is always right" phenomenon has thoroughly permeated the North American psyche... Like, "I paid to be here, so I deserve service RIGHT NOW"

I had a roommate in university actually KICK MY FRIENDS out of my room because she "paid to be here" and they didn't...

I have been to Disney Cali 3 times and Disney Paris once...I was planning a two week extravaganza at Orlando during one of their quieter times but that has been shelved at the moment for other reasons.

I am a huge Disneyland fan.....the thing is, everyone has paid to be there, patience is needed, enjoy your holiday....places like this are always going to be crowded...

OK, I'm a total Disney fan. Been to Disneyland/DCA too many times to count because I've had annual passes. Also been to the Disney parks in Tokyo, Paris, and Florida.

I hate the lines, I hate the people, the crowds--always have tried to go off season whenever possible. But all I would say to that crazy lady in the Teacup line is this:

"Listen here you crazy b***, this is freakin' DISNEYWORLD what do you EXPECT??????" Although, I admit, I don't let people cut in front of me, but I don't choke people either!

Crazy people.
