“Did it once, never again”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

This place is crowded! At least at Epcot, it's spread out enough so you're not always bumping into people. It took us a good hour to get from the parking lot to the gate via the parking lot shuttle and the ferry boat. Would have been easier if the monorail had been operational.

“Always Fun - Always Unique”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

The magic and the experience are always a joy. On our 8th or 9th visit here - we've lost count. Part of the joy is to witness total stangers (particularly little children) at a parade or meeting a character for the very first time. After all, can anyone do a theme park better than Disney?

Now, here is the challenging part. The lustre is beginning to fade. There is a risk that Disney could get trapped in a time warp and sit on its success. For instance, "Tomorrowland" is now a bit of a joke in that it is a 20 year old time capsule of what someone thought tomorrow might like in the 1970's. It is in bad need of an update. How hard would it be to update the Carosel of Progress? Bring it into 2012?

As a place for little kids it still has great value. But all the attractions are a bit on the "lame" side with the possible exception of the Laugh Floor (which can be funny depending on the audience participation).

It was fun but lots of line ups!!! Be there early if you want to go on the popular rides in Fantasyland.

“Best place on Earth...well when they get done w/construction!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I love most everything about this place, somethings I can do without though..The show in tommarow land is lame, the new voiceover on peoplemover stinks, a bunch of items on splash Mt need repair,plus the water cannons no longer shoot at you.might as well be called trickle Mt. these days. and as I said about the contruction it makes the park a little tighter, less things to do, so the attractions that are open get crowded, plus the area around the construction walls get real congested. once walls come down, it will be great!
