Love the theming in the different lands. Definitely get/use fast passes to save upwards of 2-3 hours at the more popular rides (Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Railroad, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Going at night is less crowded and you can see the Happily Ever After Castle Fireworks show. You could easily spend 2 days here. Take the Railroad if you tire during the day to other parts of the park.

We stayed at the Disney resort and GT free tickets to the park. It’s not cheap but it allows you great proximity to the parks and free transportation around.

The service everywhere was top notch and the food in the dining areas of the resort we were at offered variety. If you can help it I’d suggest you have breakfast at your resort and other meals where you can get a ticket for premium spots to see parades and shows. Research this for the Magic kingdom character parade and you won’t regret it. Your kids will go crazy as the proximity to the characters is the best.

Also the rooms are functional. The sinks aren’t too high so kids can easily work them. Same for the shower and toilets.

Overall it was a great experience. I couldn’t have asked for more.

We loved this park. The nightly fireworks show is really something to see. Do not go to this park without watching this show. They turn the castle into a giant screen for videos. It is really hard to explain but you will have to video it to show people because they will not believe you when you tell them how awesome it is. I would have given this park 5 stars if the food wasn't so over priced.

Walt Disney World is a really fun place to visit, especially if you have an annual pass. This allows you to visit as often as you wish, and it eliminates the need to rush and try to do everything, because you know there will be another visit soon. For retirees, this is a must. However, there are some down sides. Although smoking is supposed to be limited to certain areas, everyone doesn't abide by the rules, which makes it miserable for non-smokers. It is amazing that one smoker can ruin what should be a pleasant experience - for dozens of non-smokers in the area. Also, the last few times, the crowds have grown to an abnormal size. This in itself is not terrible, but so many foreigners want to walk on the wrong side (remember that many still drive on the left side of the road, rather than the right side), so this really creates an awkward collision course. Disney on occasion has tried to have 'directional' personnel with signs, but few pay attention. Also, it seems that many more people are using child strollers (rentable) to haul their coolers and other goods. This adds to the congestion. Other than this, you can have a really good time. The new features of having food tasting at the various events - other than the food festival - is a great addition. Everyone loves food, and their food is different and great!!

So much to see and do and some attractions had a 2 1/2 hour wait? For a five minute ride- totally not worth that wait. My fifth time to visit. I don’t think I’ll be back again. Way too many people.
