In the middle of planning and I realised that although I'd taken into account lots of must do recommendations I hadnt taken into account any bad places or experiences that we should avoid.

So without wanting to be all depressing, has anyone had any bad experiences at disney or places and events that they just didnt like and would recommend we avoid?

You know? For all the complaining I seem to be doing lately :sorry: I can't honestly say there is any one place to avoid. Much of a given "not so great" experience is situational. By that I mean, a CM may be having a bad day, or an attraction may be down, or the head chef called in sick. :)

Things we generally don't care for? Stitch's Great Escape in the MK. It's a poor rework of Alien Encounter which was scary the first go. Stitch is just not there, not scary, not fun. :shrug:

We aren't thrill ride types, so we avoid those, but it has nothing at all to do with the attraction and totally everything to do with our own personal preferences.

I would say that you have more of a chance to miss things at Disney than the need to avoid.

Oh, we don't do Country Bear Jamboree unless it's Gay Days and the place is packed with bears. :D :D You will NEVER be the same once you hear the audience sing along with "every man that turns me on turns me down!" :laugh: Ummmmm... :spring: but that's us again, eh? :yes:

I am so not kidding. It's worth the price of admission to witness! Wicked fun and hysterically funny. AND all in good taste! :D :D :D

I don't think there are things to avoid either. I'm also going with the situational idea, a bad day for someone, a broken down ride, a poor waitress...etc.

I don't think there's anything that you need to plan to avoid. All experiences at WDW are dependent upon weather, CMs, crowd levels etc.
The only tip I would give, is to avoid standing in really long queues at counter-service restaurants. It's often quicker to walk to a different one than stand in a queue.

You just had to go and put that image in my head... :rolleyes: .... I love the Country Bears. :yes: But now I'll start laughing before the show even begins... :lol:

Lots of people love the Lights, Motors, Action show... me personaly could snoooooooze my way through it if I'm forced to watch it again, twice was seriously enough for me. But don't let that put you off.

As for me, I wouldn't go in It's a Small World again even if you paid me. :eek: :lol:

As you see, we all like & dislike different things so try them all out. :thumbsup:

Thanks!! I'm thinking about doing the pin collecting, and it seems so expensive!

We are going in just a couple of weeks for the first time ever. We already collect the Vinylmations but I found several "lots" of pins on eBay that I bought for not a lot of money (50 for $35 or so) just to get them started on the trading part of it. Not sure of your budget, but that was the only way I was sure to have enough to start them out and not only have ones that they wouldn't want to trade. :)

Been there, done that ;-)

Many things that I've sworn off of, I've rediscovered after a bit to find I enjoy them. You know the old adage...never say never. ;-)

I guess the one thing I would try to avoid is leaving just after the fireworks or just after the parades. Typically, the lines for the buses are mobbed at these times. If you can, try to find a quiet spot and just 'chill' for a bit before wandering out. No need to be a part of the cattle call if you don't have to!
