I purchased 15 tickets and we drove 16 hours. My 4 year old grandson wanted to see Mickey Mouse. We stood in live and was the last ones in the line. I was told Mickey is done for the day. My grandson put his face on the ground and cried. He thinks Mickey Mouse doesn't like him. My 5 year old granddaughter just stood and looked at her stuffed Mickey and Minnie dolls trying to decide if she wanted them. We all left upset and did not stay for the parade.
There were long lines during christmas-new year. Some wait times were 80+ minutes. Imagine doing that with a 5 year old. There are no/few street lights inside the park. Also there are no directions. So after 5PM it is impossible to get around. Then they closed the castle and some street for some show/parade. Staff was not helpful because they themselves didn't know how to get out if a particular street is closed. There was so much crowd that everyone was stepping on each other. All the parents were sitting on the sidewalk and young kids( less than 4) were crying. In all we could take 4 rides in a day so we went the next day at 10:30AM. We were told that the park has reached its maximum capacity so they were not allowing anyone in.
There is not much to do for ages 12+.
Save your money, go to a local park like Six Flags. Sesame place, Hershey's park are much much better.
Disney World is nice. But it is very expensive. There was a nice restaraunt in the Magic Kingdom. All you can eat buffet! The Winnie the Pooh characters walk around while you eat lunch. There were so many great attractions. But the park is expensive! And getting a park hopper is a rip off. You should be able to park hop for free! The Magic Kingdom is great. But I can honestly say it's not my favorite amusement park. I had much more fun at Kings Dominion and Six Flags of America. And excessive rain does not stop this park from being overcrowded. People stood in pouring down rain to see the parade.
The Magic of Disney has been stolen away by Disney Corporate itself. This greedy company allows for severe overcrowding, outragious prices and generally an exhausting attempt to at least try and have a nice vacation. I must be honest and tell you that after a trip to Dinsey you will then need a vacation just to recover from the stress of being unable to get on rides, standing in lines that seem to be miles long, and eating food that is 2-3 times more expensive then you would pay at a local mall.
This year my daughter wanted to go to disney and stupid me booked another trip there. My wife got very sick and we had to cancel (thank god for trip cancellation insurance). To make a long story short. I was not in the least bit sad by having to cancel and in addition neither was my wife OR MY 12 year old DAUGHTER. The magic of Disney however remains strong in the memory of Disney decades ago when life was simpler and America was kinder, gentler and SMALLER. I'm sad to say we won't be going back to Disney anytime soon. $5,000- $10,000 for a week at disney including airfare, hotel, food, and car rental is hardly worth it!!!.
it started off a little rocky when there was a miscommunication between disney and our travel agent but after my mother the LAWYER called we got alot of free stuff and were free to enjoy the magic. every cast member was extremely nice on my birthday because they took the time to wish me a happy b-day. I went right after the christmas/holiday season and I suggest coming this time because the christmas decorations are still up, the temperature is perfect for anyone that is sick of winter weather (although people were staring I was able to wear shorts -- I'm from PA so maybe it's just me...), last it wasn't too crowded - I was able to make last minute reservations at the French restaruant. The negatives are if you go as a teen group they do not treat you with respect. At dinner they stuck us in a corner and had below par service while other adults around us got decent service. Also, they ignored my brother's attempts to fix a problem and went so far as to say to my mom over the phone, "You can't speak for him. He's not a minor anymore." needless to say my mother was able to get respect by replying, "I may not be able to speak for him as his mother but I can speak for him as his lawyer." Overall it's a good place to visit if you come with adults but if you come with only teens then expect to find fun but maybe not the respect/service you expected or deserved.
Just spent a day at Epcot - first time back in about 10 years and to my surprise, nothing seems to have changed. Same exhibits and nothing new with the different countries. Disney may have "imagination" but they certainly lack "innovation." For example, the Ellen DeGeneres exhibit has to be more than 12 years old - give me a break!
