I have been to Disney many times and I was very disappointed this time. Besides that it is very expensive for park admission, the food is also expensive and of poor quality. The choices are not very good and not really kid friendly. The staff use be very friendly and now they are borderline surely. They probably don't like their job or their pay. The rides need to be updated. They have become dated. Lastly the bathrooms are filthy. They use to are people cleaning all the time and I found them disgusting with a lot of non-working toilets. One thing they did improve was character appearances with organized areas to meet characters instead of everyone pouncing on them for pictures. I did find it annoying, that photographers were always pushing photos though. I think this is my last trip to Disney because I found it disappointing and a very poor value for my money. I love rides and amusement parks but I think I can go elsewhere. This no Magic left here.

love the 3 main roller coaster-like rides: Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain. also love the classic rides: Pirate of the Caribbean, It's a Small World, Haunted Mansion

FastPass is a great system to not have to stand in a very long line! **Note: you can only FastPass 1 ride at a time

love the Confectionary shoppe too! cute Mickey Mouse shaped rice krispy treats freshly made!

If I could rate this park 10 stars I would. Definitely geared more towards children, but if you can tap into your "child at heart" it's amazing! Don't miss the parades either!
