You guys/gals aren't going to believe this, but my new "never again" is the MNSSHP. We went on Thursday night, and I had been looking forward to it for so long, so it breaks my heart to tell you that it turned out to be a major disappointment. I guess maybe I went in with incorrect expectations, but I thought they limited the attendance at events such as this, so that you could experience the parks with smaller crowds. I couldn't have been more wrong. The party/park was beyond crowded. Lines for many of the rides were over 60 minutes, and the streets were so crowded we could barely move around the park. The lines for the trick or treating were also huge. While I loved the decorations, fireworks, and the Boo To You parade, I would never have paid that kind of money if I had known it would be that crowded. I even used all of the tips I learned here on the forum, like skip the first parade and ride the rides while the crowds are at the parade....even that didn't help. I did get a great picture of my family dressed in our pirate costumes near the castle and with Captain Hook, but overall, I don't think I'd do the MNSSHP again. More to come in my trip report. I'm traveling for work, so it may not be until the end of the week.

I'm sorry to hear that! We were there Thursday night, too, and had a great time! There were more crowds then I expected, but we never had to wait too long for anything....maybe we just hit everything at the right time? Sorry to hear you had a less then awesome experience!

Im with you... stuff that spins in a 360 just gets me. Going straight... or backwards is fine with me... and I can't do anything spins.

I hear you. I can do tilt-a-whirls because they at least have a back to them, but I just cannot handle tea cups since I can see everything around me spinning. yuck

It'd have to be space mountain - all that whirling about in the dark and the noise made me really poorly, when I got out into the sunlight again it took AGES to feel 'normal' again. (Well, normal for me...)

I apologize in advance to fans of this attraction and MJ:

Captain EO - I was legitimately scared. Maybe it's because I never saw the original, but I found the whole thing really creepy. Cheesy sci-fi inspiration, dirty dancing robots, and bad animation(I know, I know, it's old). I just didn't enjoy it at all, and so I say: never again.

I apologize in advance also but, I don't even understand why it's there. Crotch-grabbing, child molesting (allegedly) drug addicts don't belong in Disney. JMHO

I agree with a lot of these. Space Mountain beats me up...I always leave the ride with a neck that feels bruised and a migraine! My entire family hated the Stitch ride. And I can handle any rollercoaster you can throw at me, but 5 seconds on those teacups and I'm sick for the rest of the day! yuck Sick

I've never done Captain EO and don't think I will. Probably won't go to Chef Mickey's until I have kids of my own. Every kid deserves to experience the Chef Mickey's and that resort with the Monorail going through.

First time poster and I love this site! I wanted to ask, when exactly is love bug season?

I am headed to WDW in two weeks and could not be more excited. This will be my 4th time. The second time I went by myself and had an absolute blast. Has anyone else done that? It is a wonderful experience. Single rider lines are awesome!

I agree with Stitch being a "never-again". Very strange and seems a little sub-par to Disney standards.

I am not sure if they still serve this horrible BBQ chicken pita thing in EPCOT but the first time I went to WDW I ate that for lunch. I proceeded to mark my proverbial territory with vomit on every bush and trash can in EPCOT the rest of the day from food poisoning. My family refused to leave until the park closed so that was a day of misery for me. While the light show was going on, I was hurling in the grass. The poor folks around me were horrified but there was nothing I could do. All I can say is I am now a vegetarian but watch out for questionable food at the parks. Yuk.

Oh yes. The tea cups. My boyfriend is a, lets just say, over-enthusiastic spinner on that ride. I thought we were going to fly of the ride. Yikes.

I think I am done with mission space. After many, many rides on that thing, my anxiety of being trapped in tight spaces gets the best of me. Not to mention someone puked on it sitting beside me last time....Yea, not fun at all. yuck

The Sound show at DHS. So dark I felt claustrophobic and slight panic. Kids were screaming and crying. It seemed to go on for ever and it wasn't even that good! Never again.

If you are talking about "Sounds Dangerous" with Drew Carey. That has been shut down for quite a while with no plans to revive it. Fortunately.

Without doubt, the stupidest attraction ever.

stars Hi there! Welcome to the forums! stars

I believe there are actually two one in the spring (March) and one in the fall (late Sept/early Oct). At least those are the two times of year that I've encountered them at a problem level.

Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry that you had a rough day at Epcot. Mostly because your family wouldn't take care of you! At the very least they could have let you rest at the nursing station. I've never run into a food poisoning issue at Disney. The quality is usually pretty high and not at all like regular "theme park food."

We were there the first week in May last year, and love bug season was just winding down. You had to sweep them off the loungers by the pool before you could sit down, and our room usually had a few every day - mousekeeping left the door open while they cleaned I think.

Annoying things, but harmless (except apparently to the paint on your car. eek )

That's the one. We went on it in December 2010, I think. Not surprised that it has been shut down! Thanks for info

I agree. We saw it once and never went back. It was just weird, and it didn't seem to make sense in a Disney park. There was nothing Disney about it!

Yes Colonel, we agree completely with you about Capt. EO. With all the allegations and creepiness, he does not belong at Disney.
Also agree on the tea cups, since I've had kids I can't do anything that spins. I think pregnancy changed something in my brain.
Stitch is also a no-go, it's just dumb, 'nuff said.
Not a big fan of the Gran Prix either. The line moves slow and is usually long, and when the kids drive I get knocked around.
We probably won't do the Jack Sparrow show in HS either. Once was enough.

Haven't seen this one mentioned. We did "Party for the Senses" during the Food and Wine Festival. The F&W Festival is absolutely terrific (especially for me...love wine!)...but the "Party"? The most disorganized disaster Disney has ever come up with. Slamming that many people in such a small space is...to us...just plain stupid. There aren't enough tables for everybody so we opted to spend time sitting on the floor...out of the way. It worked...but would have been much more enjoyable sitting in a chair at a table.

On a positive note...we had some terrific wine and fabulous food. But do it again? Don't think so...

On a negative note...the entertainment the night we were there? David Cassidy. David Cassidy? Really? He still couldn't sing!

On the ride side...I swore off anything that spins years ago. I get a really bad case of vertigo.

I am so glad to hear that other folks have had to stop the spinning things too. I have also had to forgo roller coasters, sadly. But Disney offers so much to do and see, I don't feel deprived. mickey

The American Gardens Theater venue is actually really small, which means they can't really book people that are going to draw a large crowd on their own. Disney has to bring in names that are known, but not currently popular enough that the fans would overwhelm the regular Disney guests or security. Venue booking is a pretty tricky balance.

Age has caught up with me so anything that spins does me in. The idea of riding the Teacups turns me green and not with envy. laugh Fortunately I can still ride roller coasters.

I will never visit WDW again during peak crowd times. I was afraid to let go of my son's hand for fear of losing him in the crowd. I will also never ride the Tower of Terror again, but I am glad that I tried it at least. Finally, HOT DOGS! I know folks love them but I do not. Nothing else comes to mind. Disney = happiness!! muchlove

Mission Space, I was sick for 2 days after that. Rode it back in Jan 2005 on my honeymoon, and that will be the last time.

As I get older all of my faves are giving me massive headaches! Space and Thunder Mountains both left me with such a bad head ache I could hardly move my head. How SAD! Am I supposed to not hit my must hits? How can that be?

Stitch, that breath makes me want to vomit.

Chef Mickey's. Aside from the great photo ops if you can get the kids, character and Monorail all in the same shot, not worth the hype. There is nothing more disturbing than a buffet with birds nesting above it and flying around it. Birds nesting and flying above the tables. We won't be doing that again. We had dinner there before MVMCP one year. The characters were great though!

OKW, the rude staff totally outweighed the friendly. There were not enough friendly employees to make us want to go back. BUT, if we are tight on points and can't get BWV, I guess we will be back. sarcastic

Hello everyone! I am actually going on my first "adult" or "without my family" Disney trip with one of my best friends for Spring Break next month, so I was looking up "tips and tricks" and came across this website! I just had to join. Smile I am so excited to experience Disney in a new way--on our own! It'll be different, but I'm sure it'll be fun no matter what. (I mean, it's Disney.. it's ALWAYS fun) Smile

Anyway, I just wanted to add my little story on here- The last time I went to WDW was last May, with my family I'm 22 now and I was 21 then, but the last time I had been before that I was only 13, so a lot had changed. Anyway, I am the type of person that basically hates all rollercoasters and scream like I'm being murdered until it's over and then get off feeling like I had a mild heart attack. However, I feel the need force myself to ride them at Disney because I don't want to miss out on anything. 1st- Mt. Everest: I was told by a friend it was "relaxing" FALSE! I don't remember much because my eyes were closed and I screamed non-stop, but when I got off I felt like I might faint. 2nd- Space Mountain: The worst! I hate how it's the jerkiest rollercoaster, yet the least secure. You only have one bar that goes over your lap?! Crazy! I had nothing to grasp onto tightly as I screamed for dear life. Also felt like I had a mini heart attack. Not to mention I was forced to ride it with the lights turned on at age 13, that could be a part of the problem. Haha! 3rd- RockNRollercoaster. I thought I'd hate this one after the first two, but complete opposite! This is by far the BEST ride there! I loved it and it was the only coaster I opened my eyes on. Despite alllllll of these negative and positive rollercoaster experiences, I still can't say "never again" to any of them. Yes, I plan on doing it again when I go next month. Haha! I guess I'm a little crazy for that, but I can't not ride something in Disney! No matter what!

PS Anything you suggest I do while I'm there? I'd love to hear some suggestions as it's the first time that I get to make my own itinerary without my parents doing all the planning/organizing. Smile

Eat at at your favorite restaurant, try out the new fun attractions, like Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney (I've heard the food is great there), make sure you do one night at Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk (sooo much fun - I miss going there with friends!!) and have a nice Avocado Margarita (so good!) in La Cava del Tequila at the Mexico Pavillion in Epcot.

Basically, just do what YOU want! Even if it means lounging at the Pool one afternoon instead of running around crazy in the crowded parks. Hope this helped a little Smile

Haha yea I was shocked on how much I loved it. I liked how secure I felt, how smooth it was, and all of the cool neon lights. Not to mention, I love Aerosmith! Definitely at the top of my favorite rides list.

It's always packed because it is so small inside, the mirrors just make it look huge. There really are not that many tables in there.
