Disney "Desert Island" game

If you could only:

1. Eat one Disney meal
2. Ride one Disney ride
3. See one Disney movie

over and over for the rest of your life, what would they be??

1.) Le Cellier
2.) WEDWay
3.) The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh

#2 may be controversial but I figure if I'm going to ride it forever it should be something relaxing and easy to get on.

1.) 'Ohana (BEST dessert ever)
2.) Kilimanjaro Safaris (it would always be changing!)
3.) Toy Story

No good answer for questions like this...

1. Starlight Cafe. (Big selection)
2. TTA
3. Lilo & Stitch

I'm with Marzyar that you want to find a place with a lot of selection, but I'm drawing a blank on where that would be so I'm copying his answer. Then I'm copying SpaceAce's answer to #2 for the same reason. I hope I don't get in trouble! I also think dsoup used a time machine to steal my answer to #3!

1. Starlight Cafe
2. Safari
3. Pooh

I'm so unoriginal. sad

1 california grill -- at least i'll have a great view while i get sick of the food.
2 expedition everest -- i could go through that line 1000 times and probably not pick out all the cool theme elements.
3 monsters, inc.

This is a mean and horrible thread! How am I supposed to pick ONE of each? Lol.

I'll try...

1. Napa Rose at the Grand Californian at DLR (this was ANY Disney restaurant right? Not just WDW). Incredible meal, wine, service and one of the best nights I've had in a restaurant. Anywhere.

2. Soarin'. Toughest of all the questions, but there is just nothing like it.

3. The Little Mermaid. Favorite Disney movie ever.


And...um...your selections Miss Bali?

Ah yes! I must answer my own question!

1. Crystal Palace, as I'm a simple buffet girl...and I loves me some Tigger
2. Magic Kingdom railroad
3. Parent Trap. Yes indeedy.

Yes, Bali is clearly a sadist.

Tell us more about that Dinner, is Napa Rose in the vein of Citricos?

1. BOMA!!! (Only one that was a no-brainer!)
2. Really tough, but my favorite is Haunted Mansion, so...
3. Probably Beauty and the Beast.

I like the Haunted Mansion answer...though you'd be "deathly" pale after riding it over and over again...

(oh...that was awful...I'm ashamed.)

I'm kind of wanting to replace my ride with Toy Story. That's probably the most "replayable" ride out there right now.

Ah...now that's a GREAT idea. You could play that for quite a while and keep learning new things and seeing new stuff.

Neither of us have ever eaten at Cirticos, but they are both upscale in variety.

Napa Rose is probably the best restaurant at DLR and we had a fantastic Valentine's Day prix fixe meal. The service was great and the wine list was amazing! Definitely one of those special event meals, but worth every penny.

I wish I could tell when a wine list was amazing. I'm completely clueless about that kind of thing!

What's your favorite dish at the California Grill? Have you tried the sushi there?

I don't really have one, but I'm not big on sushi.

I think they have a nice tenderloin I've had a few times.

Interesting story about the California Grill. I was there with a few coworkers two or three years ago and one of the was a vegetarian. The vegetarian menu at the CG is pretty light, but the server had the kitchen fix her a "best of" meal featuring all kinds of stuff.

She had this tremendous plate of vegetarian food and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Did she tell the server that she wasn't impressed or did the server just offer?

He pretty much just offered. She was looking at the menu and it came up that she was a vegetarian. She in no way complained about the menu, but she appeared to be thinking about things.

He just said, let me have them put something together for you an he took care of the rest.

that's really great. i wonder if i can stare at the menu and get them to give me a sampler of non-vegetarian meals. there are several places where i'd love to get a little bit of all the dishes. that must have been awesome for her.

I came to my senses, as I'd previously said i didn't care about the movie. I wasn't thinking properly.

My REVISED list -

California Grill
Haunted Mansion
Dr. Syn, Alias The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh

After all, I waited a LONGGGGG time for them to release it on DVD, and I got my copy shortly before Christmas last year. I'm not big on paying a lot of money for videos, but I didn't hesitate to plop down $60 for that, so it MUST be the one I'd want to watch.

I've always found Disney restaurants to be very accommodating when you need to change up a menu/dish. They've never disappointed me, and I'm always reminded to just ask--chances are they can whip something wonderful up for you.

Sounds like good logic to me! I can't remember the last film I spent sixty bucks on!

Yeah, I've been revising my answers as other people make good suggestions. Toy Story Mania for example, seems like a great idea since you could keep getting better and better at it. It's gonna be hard to beat out Pooh for the movie though!

True. I think I'd like to revise Space Mountain to Toy Story Mania. clapping

1. I'll be boring and say Le Cellier, to keep it a WDW theme, though I agree with Joy about Napa Rose. Of course there are others that I haven't tried yet that could possibly sway my decision.

2. Splash Mountain

3. Mary Poppins, without hesitation.

Ooh - Mary Poppins is a really good choice!

I haven't ridden TSM yet. When we come back from our trip, I may have to change Haunted Mansion...

It's definitely not my favorite ride. But I think it would remain interesting for the longest.

Can't wait to ride! Hopefully by the time our trip comes the waits will have died down a little bit...
