I love the fact that there are no "bugs". I appreciate some of you have had a bite, but we have never been bothered or even seen one unless of course we were in It's a Bug's Life. wink

Dh says that he agrees with above statements that you can be a wild as you want and as long as there is a smile on your face and you are obviously enjoying yourself, we all smile with you. awesome

So here's to tiaras and crowns, ears, and pirate head wraps and long may they make you smile! Big smile

BTW I have stocked up on spray on hair glitter for MK. It's pixie dust to me. DH thinks it's stupid, but when we watch the fireworks he always tells me that the Tink impersonator is flying the line and he is standing near the real thing. muchlove

Amy wants to add she appreciates she has only seen one Spider in Disney
(and that was in the french perfume shop in EPCOT-so it was a good smelling
French spider and hence, not quite as scary)

To her- having an almost spider-less vacation is MAGICAL stars

I am late to this thread but I would like to add that what my hubs and I like best about Disney is we can set our own pace. Not one CM rushes you. Doesn't matter if you are eating or just enjoying the park. We are not the schedule keeping, must ride Dumbo kind of people. (The Dumbo or die in a Day touring plan). When we are there we are relaxed and peaceful.

I also enjoy people watching especially to look at the shoes people wear.

I would have said this as well until last Monday. We sat down to wait for the Festival of Fantasy parade around 2:00 and the first half hour or so was fine, but then all of a sudden, these little black bugs started swarming around. We were just sitting on the curb on Main Street. No one around us seemed to be eating anything and the bugs were just out in force for no particular reason. I've never seen bugs like that anywhere at Disney. Of course it was too late to find another seat because the curbs were packed by that point, but luckily the little guy occupying the seat next to me (his name was Silas and it was his 5th birthday--really cool little kid. I talked to him for like an hour) was an expert bug stomper and by the time the parade started they were at least tolerable.

You talking about those black bugs with the red/oange heads? Those are lovebugs wink Seasonal, and not muchyou can do about them!

There are plenty of bugs. There was a swarm of gnats at Fantasmic, I always see those giant ones that look like roaches, and I've been eaten alive by mosquitos. And there are snakes all over the place. A good snake sighting always excites the ladies.

REALLY? I'm a little envious.
I always feel rushed through there, it's one of the reasons I don't recommend it to people.

This may sound kinda weird but i swear i feel healthier... confused .I get up at 6.30am and I don't have my usual back pains.I can walk for miles around the parks and have no sore feet. And at night when I look up at the stars they seem brighter than back home..The air seems like it's cleaner..I swear that Disney fill that magic bubble with pixie dust just after midnight.. clapping

I love the smells around the parks. They can practically guide you around the parks without even opening your eyes laugh

As someone from south Louisiana, I appreciate the fact, that Disney does a great job with Insect Abatement. I've never been bit by a mosquito in the parks, let alone seen one, or a fly for that matter.

Lastly, the music that plays as you move around the parks... I've downloaded quite a few off the web, and now play them on weekend mornings while my 7 year old daughter and I make breakfast, usually Mickey pancakes or waffles... It make us both HAPPY!!! stars yeah

Yes Mame. Really. This will be the first time we don't eat there. We decided to try Boma instead.

I agree! Everyone always talks about how bad the bugs are in Florida but I've never noticed a single insect in Disney.
