Best/Worst Moments - What we thought of our trip.
Here I won’t be sticking to just Disney, as we did Universal and Busch Gardens too. Unless I say DH has a different opinion, then the answers are for us both.
Best Tour? Keys to the Kingdom - All the tours were good, though we found the Keys to the Kingdom to be the best. It was very interesting, and we did it at the beginning of our trip so what we were told was in our minds throughout the trip so we looked at things slightly differently as we were more aware of the work that was put in to make everything as it was.
Best Value for Money? Keys to the Kingdom. $60 for 4 1/2 hours including a entree and a drink for lunch.
Biggest Waste of Money? Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party, $60 for 4 extra hours in the park really wasn’t worth it. The parade and the Totally Tomorrowland Christmas shows were good, but really not worth the money. And I couldn’t see anywhere giving out the free hot cocoa.
Best Park Show? For me it was KaTonga at Busch Gardens, for my DH it was the Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.
Most Park Enjoyable Show? Again my DH would say Festival of the Lion King, but though I though KaTonga was really good, for shear enjoyment I preferred ‘A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas’ as I really got it to it and was singing along, and it did feel like Christmas, it was a lot of fun.
Worst Park Show? The Grinchmas at Universal, that was really boring.
Best Disney Dinner Show? The Hoop-De-Doo, it was the most fun of the three (we attended them all)
Favourite Rolloercoaster? Shakira at Busch Gardens. Though I was probably roller-coaster out after our day at Busch gardens so by the time we got to Universal I probably didn’t give the Rock It and the Hulk a fair chance.
Ride that wasn’t worth the wait? For me it was the wooden roller-coaster at Busch Gardens, we waited about 45 minutes (which is a lot since all other rides at Busch Gardens were walk-ons) to go in the front. But it was so ricketty it actually gave me a headache which lasted for a couple of hours after I finished riding.
Best Meal? Boma, though Beirgarten was pretty good too. I think I probably rank them the highest because with a buffet you get to try everything and eat more of the nicest dishes.
Most Disappointing Meal? Not counting Wolfgang Puck Express as the meal there itself tasted fine. I would say that the meal at the Prime Time Cafe was most disappointing, it was fun, don’t get me wrong and in the future I may even go again, but I just expected really hearty home cooked style of food and it was actually rather tasteless.
Best Parade? The Block Bash Party at Hollywood Studios as it was more interactive.
Best Park? Magic Kingdom, and I think that it largely because we went on the Kings to the Kingdom. When we visited WDW 5 years ago we spent one day at MK, and thought it was boring, but I think that was because we were looking for the ‘big rides’. We’d never realized before how big MK is, and you can spend a casual day or two there without children (providing it’s not too busy).
Most Disappointing Park? For my DH it was Epcot, when we went in 2004 Epcot was our favorite and we spent a lot of time there. This time DH got bored, possibly because we spent so much time there last time also they had toned down Mission Space (his favorite ride) so that wasn’t the same. For me it was Universals Islands of Adventure, there just didn’t seem to be that many good rides, and we struggled to fill a day, Universal Studios was much better.
