The service was awfull and the food was nothing special...
Never can understand why its always so packed Shock

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.

For me, I'll never do Ellen's Energy Adventure. One trip my family were about to ride it but it broke down before the dinosaurs animatronics. Rode it for the first time on my last trip and well, it's a ride I won't do again. Seems outdated.

Food wise, I won't dine again at Planet Hollywood (Way too noisy and the food was okay but considering how my views of chain restaurants are mostly negative these days, I'm staying away from most chain restaurants.) and ABC Commissary. I understand they changed their menu since I last ate there back in 2010. Back when the menu had their items based on ABC shows, the fish and chips I had were pretty bad. Too much grease and not enough fish for me. If only I knew Yorkshire County Fish Shop and Cookes of Dublin earlier........

I understand that the Commissary is getting a refurb. Going to be ADRs for dinner, QS for lunch.

I've got a bunch of never-agains and some no-way-i'm-trying-thats:

Never Again:

Stitch's Great Escape - I love Stitch, but why do an have to be forcibly restrained in the absolute pitch dark to experience this "ride" that doesn't go anywhere. Hate it, hate it, hate will never do it again.

Mission Space - I didn't even make it to the ride portion. I psyched myself up for the fact that the screen was going to be really close to my face and I could put on my big girl pants and handle it and know that I wasn't going to suffocate and the mouse would never do anything to hurt me. Then they dropped the chest harness. I tried to take a deep breath because I needed to cough and I was paralyzed in the seat. No freaking way I was staying in there. Thank God a cast member rescued me.

Space Mountain -

Quote:
I'll never let them put me in the front seat of Space Mountain! Good lord I thought I was going to die......

On the rare instance that I suck it up and join my friends or family on this trip to anxiety hell, I will also not ride in the front. Nor will I ride directly behind my husband who is tall and mostly because he's long-waisted. When you go through the flashy tunnel parts, it looks like he's going to be decapitated and it freaks me out.

Dinosaur - I survived, but I won't say that I enjoyed the ride and I'll surely avoid it in the future.

Starring Rolls Bakery - The source of Benn's magical food poisoning that wrecked our MVMCP night.

Ellen's Energy Adventure - I'll only go if I need a nap and I don't feel like going back to the room...

Not Trying - Not No Way, Not No How:

Tower of Terror (as a claustrophobic, elevators are one of my worst nightmares. why oh why would you want to drop in a possessed elevator), Rock-n-Roller Coaster (after my mission space experience, I'm not anxious to do anything with an overhead restraint ever again), Expedition Everest (I was toying with trying this, but after looking at it in person, I think it's firmly on the no-go list).

Mission Space used to be a favorite of mine when I was in high school, but this last trip I totally freaked out when they closed me up inside. I am claustrophobic as well and I just completely lost it. I had to close my eyes and picture myself somewhere else while riding. I practiced deep breathing exercises. Unfortunately for me, no one rescued me even though when they closed it...I was like yea, I need to get off this thing. It doesn't help when the guests riding with you, who did not speak English, were breathing into the puke bags before it even started. Yea. Never again!

I appreciate your insights but I must respectfully turn down any offers or suggestions to eat there again unless I see some improvements in the reviews.....

The scariest ride in WDW is definitely the Monorail. I spent an hour going from MK to the Poly. The damn thing got stuck at least five times. And every time they had to power down (no AC no fresh air) and reboot the computer. Terrifying! Worse than the NYC subway.

A ride I will never get on again is Goofy's Barnstormer. I know it is just a kiddie ride, but that first curve is a little steep and I thought I was going to fall out. Seriously. I am a little overweight and even though I fit into the seat, it just didn't feel right. My fiance rode in the car before me and he's having a good time, arms waving in the air. Me, I'm screaming out, "I don't like this." Couldn't get off the ride fast enough. Then my fiance proceeds to tell me that if I couldn't handle that, I wouldn't be able to handle Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I became disappointed and chose not to ride it. However on the next trip out, I will brave it and make my own decision.

I also will not go in the summer again. Way too hot and too crowded.

Captain Eo is on my never again list. I've done it twice and that's more then enough for me. I'm also not a big fan of Mission Space. I have motion sickness, mainly when I travel long distances in any form of transportation minus trains and boats. I do fine with the boats around WDW but I haven't been on a big boat like a cruise ship, so not sure on how I would do. The only ride that makes me feel ill after one ride is Mission Space. I can do Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller coaster many times in a row even Everest many times. I think my record for Coaster is 7 times in a row then my record is Everest 8 times in a row but I did that four times twice within a few minutes.

Fantasmic - we ended up being completely soaked, and then a breeze started so now we are both wet and cold. It was so horrible. We were too busy trying to take cover by crouching down a bit behind the seats and people in front of us that I couldn't even watch the whole show, let alone enjoy it.

Also I will never stay 5 nights, definitely need to at least double the number of nights we stay.

King Fergus

On our first trip in 2004 I stood in the queue with my DW and DS who was six at the time, for Space Mountain..I couldn't remember the last time I went on a roller coaster but something was telling me,this was a bad idea... eek Well my eyes were shut the whole time and my finger prints are still on the shuttle...That was my first and last ride at WDW..It took me long enough to build up nerve to go on Goofys Barnstormer years later..I get serious motion sickness and I have high blood pressure.

The Stitch escape ride. It smelled, it hurt my shoulders, it was confusing and panicky. And a small child flipped out and they had to power down the whole ride to come and get him. I felt for him, because it was awful.

Mission Space was not enjoyable either. It was uncomfortable and seemed old.

Everything else was great!

Primeval Whirl. Even once was too much! When my sister and I got off that ride, I was apologizing to her because she really doesn't like the big thrill rides (the only one she can handle is Big Thunder Mountain). I seriously didn't think it was going to be as bad as we found it.

I forgot another thing I'd never do again. The Free Dining Plan. Mein sister and I had a bad experience at the Animal Kingdom with it. What we usually do is this. One of us stakes out a table, and the other gets in line and orders the food. Since we couldn't do that on the dining plan, I let sis go first in line, while I got the table. When she came back, I got in line for my food, which, by that time, was a pretty long line. Worst part of all, people were sending their food back because it was cold (this was at Restraunt-O-Saurus), and I ended up having to wait longer than usual, because the people who were sending their food back were being served before the people who had ordered. Mein sister didn't have it so easy, either. She was holding the table, and she said there weren't tables, and there was a family searching for a table, and she didn't want to get up just yet, and these kids were staring at her. They didn't say anything, they just stared at her. She did let a woman take a couple of chairs from the table (because the nice lady asked her first).

Never again-- well, at least while the kids are still home-- will we go without the DDP.

We went in 2012 and got YES tickets to save money-- but that meant no package, and no DDP.

It felt as though we were hemorrhaging money. It did a real job on how much I enjoyed our carefully plotted ADRs, because I was so focused on how outrageously expensive the meals were.

Whether or not the DDP saves us money (some trips it does, others we pretty much break even) it does add to the value of my trip. I enjoy myself far more when I can order without looking at the prices.

Mission Space - The not-tame side. Um, once was plenty.

Staying Off-Site - Incredible package deal, hotel on I-drive, free shuttle. But never again.

Busy Season - I've gotten to the point where there are about four really slow weeks I'll visit. Other times, no way.

I love going on Mission to Mars. I fully appreciate, however, that being locked in a small space and being spun can be quite unnerving for a lot of people. When I was last at Epcot, I watched as a kid insisted to his dad he had to do the full on ride and the dad pleading with the kid not to do it...guess who won? Slumped shoulders followed a very happy kid inside...!!

Space Mountain, I always have to sit in the last car cos I'm quite broad, so don't want to block anyone's view of oncoming stuff...however, I'm also quite tall so have to skooch down a little too.

Dinosaur is a ride full of quite violent jolts. I can see how people don't like it so much, but I'll ride it

Ellen's ride is possibly one ride I may not revisit so often unless it is updated. I know the general gist of the pre-ride video is all about how we use energy but it could use an update as it's looking a little dated now. (Actually all of Epcot is beginning to look a little dated...sorry!)

As for the others, the only one I haven't ridden is Tower of Terror but only cos I don't like being dropped from height...it's fine to strap me into a metal bathtub and hurl me through loops and upside down or in the dark or backward (as on Expedition Everest) or as a combo of all of the above, but dropping me from heights is a no-no - unless I'm with friends, in which case peer pressure usually overrides my self preservation instinct! haha!

My Never Rides are:

Dinosaur - went on it as a small child and terrified the life out me, a few years later i decided to stop being a baby and try again (note to self as you get older things don't tend to get any less frightening, if anything they get worse!)

Mission Space orange - used to love this ride as a kid but once i became a grown-up i came off it feeling ill for days have to say the green is a MASSIVE difference without the spinning at the beginning everything else is kinda like star tours just squeezed in a little tighter!

I like almost everything. I'm pretty easy to please and the more thrilling, the better! However I'll share 1 for my wife since she's not a member here.

THE BACKSTORY: So I first bought my wife and I annual passes to DL & CAA back when we we're dating. She didn't have a very great upbringing, and had only been to DL one time in her life. She made fun of my love for Disney, and she assumed that the parks were not a place adults could have fun. She even teased me and bragged about how six flags had much better and more thrilling rides, and that she was a coaster lover. I agree with her, but I still heavily prefer Disney parks over anything else.

Fast forward to our 1st time together at DL / CAA alone without our daughter in tow. It was the day before I proposed.

THE STORY: So it's a completely uncrowded day & I take her straight to California Adventure. My game-plan was to hit all of the 40" and over rides we could since we were finally child free for once! In our first hour there, we managed to get on 1.) Soaring over California 2.) Tower of Terror & 3.) California Screamin. It was amazing. No fastpass needed! CAA was a ghost town. Unbeknownst to her, my wife's adventurous roller coaster loving spirit had vanished after the birth of our daughter. The moment California Screamin came to a stop where we were to exit & the new passengers board, she threw up ALL over the place. It was an epic event. It was everywhere! She momentarily lost her voice and subsequently had to physically hand block an excited 12 year old girl who attempted to get into our otherwise compromised section of the coaster. I informed a very unhappy cast member of our accident and we quickly fled the scene!

I still tease her to this day, and to this day she will NOT ride Tower of Terror, nor California Screamin. Our trips to WDW will now forever include a heavy supply of dramamine w/ frequent redbulls to overcome the drowsiness.

She felt so terrible about it all. After the incident, she sat in a food court area near cars land for over 2 hours trying to shake the nausea. I went to Downtown Disney and bought her some new clothes from Quicksilver/Roxy, and then patiently sipped some beers alongside her while she recovered. She knew I was probably going to propose that day or sometime soon. I had many surprise romantic things planned for us that day including an ADR for Blue Bayou & reserved seats to Fantasmic. She managed to pull it together after dinner, and we had a pretty good time till we left near closing.

What a doosey for our first trip together without any kiddos! We'll never forget it!

Day before... but close enough! It was sort of a packaged two day date Smile
