I've been to Disneyworld. It was SOOO much fun! The roller costers are really fun. The only down part is the line up. They are ridiculously long! But, then again, Disney IS a popular attraction site!

No, not those kinds of passes. Anyway, I don't believe you -.- I would much rather go to universal, anyway. They have awesome rides + a lot of other entertainment. There are plenty of people other than tourists that go to disney on school days. Younger kids, people that are doing their break before college, people after college...people that have nothing to do, homeschooled kids, and adults that are out of work, be it for awhile or just for certain days ^^ And the tourists are nuts, there are so many of them cry

I can only vouch for the Disney Land in CA, but what the other person said is true. If you go on weekdays, when everyone is normally in school, then the most you have to wait for each ride is like.. 10 minutes. At MOST. Even the more popular rides like Splash Mountain/Adventure Mountain are only 20-30 minutes of a wait, tops.

Too bad it's difficult finding people to go with you when they're at work/school sad

I've been to Disneyworld, FL about a billion times. Admittedly, most of those times were before I turned five - but I've been two or three times after that. Magic Kingdom FTW =D!
...And Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom FTW too, because they have awesome 'coasters 8DD

Bleh... had a big post, but it sounded negative, so i deleted xD. Anyway, i refuse to believe you live in Florida. Go on a wednesday to say Islands of adventure(universal). While school(for everyone) is in session of course. You'll be in for a surprise. Anyway, to straighten your rant. Younger kids that go during school days most likely are too small for the real rides and too young to pay or be there on their own. Counting them as anything is useless. As for homeschoolers. You'd need every homeschooler in florida to come at once to equal half of the daily average for JUST disney themeparks. college breaks are pretty similar unless it's the other side of the country. In that case, they have their own disney/universal over there etc, so, no point adding them. If anything you can count field trips, but schools usually don't go on the same day and it's still not enough, plus it's usually towards the end of the school year. Too many faults with your logic. Since you're a floridian, actually buy a year pass for once and use it ;P Oh yeah, didn't realize you meant express passes earlier. Those rock, though if it's not busy, there's no use for them ;D They come with one of the annual ticket packages, last i recall. anywho... almost 4am... sleep... <_<:

. . . Someone's getting a liiiitle too serious about this. I do in fact live in florida, and seeing as I do not go to disney every other weekend, I am only judging by the times I have gone, as are you. I don't go often enough to justify a year pass, nor can I >.< So there.

I will remember this, though. And when I do get a chance to go while school is in (on a Wednesday) if it is crowded I am going to send such a powerful curse towards you in my mind that you will feel it. If it is crowded, I will bathe in the feeling of win, whilst trying not to melt in the heat and gag on the smell of other people's sweat.

And just because someone lives in florida does not mean they've been to disney at all. Who would want to go when people are packed in like pigs.

When I went to epcot, it was like a ghost town -.- It was during a school trip, ending in disaster but next to no one was there. . .I assumed it was because it is a less-hyped park, but maybe you are right. I will find out one day.

I went to Tokyo Disneyland a few years ago. It got really crowded when the midday parade was passing through as well as during the evening fireworks. And the queues were just awful. Though, I wouldn't mind going there or any other Disneyland again 8D Loved Space Mountain.

I remember the entry ticket cost between Y3500~Y4000 when I went, which was worth it given that all the rides inside were free.

You'll be in for a nice surprise then. I've never been to your Disney resort precisely but I've been to other Disney resorts as well as other big theme parks with crazy scary rides. They're always much much less crowded on weekdays when school is on, so much that I find it silly to try to go there on weekends or other holidays where it's so crowded it's literally suffocating. It's only to be expected really, since not many people can go during non holidays. So the best time in our life when we should go to theme parks is... probably college years, lot of free time if we want to while everybody else is busy working or studying in school. But then again we'd be too old to appreciate most of the magic of Disney attractions by then.

Well, i've only been to the ones in Anaheim and in France and I didn't like the one in LA. I found the "Disney" feeling to be missing. The Disney's architecture was underwhelming and cheap imo. It felt like a regular attraction park to me. Mind you, between friends and family, i've been there 5 times, so I think the "magic" feeling is wearing out.

Hmm. I was wondering why I couldn't choose "was forced to go and regretted it" but I can see that even now people are getting up in arms.

I've been to the ones in FL and CA, and opted out of HK and JP because I was tired of dealing with all of it. I'm not a fan of roller coasters, and even when it's not crowded, the kids have attrocious manners, running into you and spilling food. I can understand why some people like to go, but not me. I'd much rather go to Universal, or better yet, skip the parks and take me to the Huntington Library or Frank & Sons. You Cali people and collectors should know what I mean ^_^

You know, you really need to add a "Are you at Disneyland right now" button; as I had just finished my first full day at Disneyland, CA when I saw/voted in this poll. My wife cracked up when I showed her the question; she hadn't even taken her Micky ears off yet. laugh

I really did not expect at all for the first option to win. Maybe because where I live it's really expensive to go (travel, lodging and etc).
