  • Definitely the happiest place on Earth. This is our go-to vacation spot. We haven't been lately and we all miss it. Disney is the best experience around. The staff members "cast members" pride themselves on customer service. Besides eating and riding rides, we spend a lot of time trading collectors' pins. And any cast member will trade up to 2 pins with you, so you can find great treasures. Disney is simply the gold standard for amusement parks. Nothing else even comes close.
  • I love Disney World! I've been here so many times as a kid and as an adult. I love Pleasure Island! I love to dance, love comedians, love the night life!It's a whole lot of fun! The most incredible fireworks I've ever seen at Epcot! I love animals, so of course I love Animal Kingdom, and I love taking a safari! Christmas and New Year's Eve are my favorite holidays, so naturally I enjoyed the Christmas shop! Some of the ornaments on my tree include Disney ornaments. These are examples of so much fun at Disney, and I included some of many pictures I have to share! I also enjoy watching the events on TV that take place here. I love Walt Disney, and I admire his saying: " It's fun to do the impossible." Thanks Walt Disney for this great place that I had sensational times, and for the future fabulous times to come! 2018
  • Best amusement park experience ever! Disney has mastered how to move large masses of people. I was very impressed with the technology offered to make your experience as efficient as possible. Park employees were always friendly and helpful... but really the Disney app is so great with navigating you through the park it was rare that we had to ask an employee for anything.The park restrooms are very clean. As for food, Epcot was the best park for a vegetarian/ vegan meal...but all the parks offered delicious food. Every park has fun ride choices for the whole family. The fireworks are phenomenal and just make everyone so happy!..regardless of age. This really is the happiest place on Earth!
  • A wonderful truly magical experience. I would recommend going without kids to annoy all of the attractions. Best to get reservations months in advance. The best experiences are the alcoholic ones! The food was an experience of its own. Just about every meal we had was delicious and unique. We will gladly go back over the next few years before we have kids!
  • First time for my 9 year old son, my husband, and I to Animal Kingdom. Wonderful park. Lots to do for those not into rides. The Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo, and it's tough to be a bug shows were great. I don't know how the actors remain so professional like its their first show and they aren't bored with the role or scripts. They all did amazing. Flight of passage for Pandora was impossible to get into. However, we did everything else at the park. My son enjoyed becoming a Wilderness Explorer and collecting badges. The information given at those stations was amazing. We met people from all over the world. The safari ride was interesting, and we got to see the baby giraffe the first day out on the safari. Expedition Everest was a great ride, and loved the set up in line. The entire park is beautiful.
