    I know. Loss of the Arch really made a huge (and not good) difference in the festive air this past Christmas Season. I remember when they first put up the arch, but it was such a beautiful addition it's hard to understand why they'd take it away.

    I remember too when the Santas and Storytellers were gone after Christmas day. It made it more authentic that way... now they are there throughout the entire season. Gives more people a chance to see them, but somehow spoils the whole "Santa is real" sort of thing they had going on with having Santa gone as of Christmas day.

    Another positive vote for Epcot from me.
    Somehow [probably due to it`s size and being actually 2 parks with WS and FW] it never seems to be too crowded compared to the other parks.
    We love going there during the Garden Festival, seeing all the topiaries and massed floral displays.

    I just told Johnie yesterday..."It's funny, I now look forward to seeing EPCOT for the first time on a trip the same way I look forward to seeing the castle."

    It has become "my place" I LOVE it.

    Took me a while to 'Get' Epcot but I absolutely love it and it reaches tegh parts the otehr parks just don't reach, WS is brilliant and the Kim Possible stuff is just amazing. But I have to say future worls has lost its was a bit, its not as cohesive as it once was with Disney putting thrill rides in to try and get the crowds in rather than focussing on the educational side of it, UoE looks tired and old, WoL has been left to rot wheras the living Seas and thLand are soo much better than they were - maybe they are doing 1/2 at a time

    My best ever Disney experience was the Epcot tapestry of nations parade, the music still makes me shiver, sooo powerful and we have heard it all over the world

    As I get older I love EPCOT more, but it has to keep changing by the very nature of its remit

    I like nothing more than having a cup of coffee and asticky bun and watching the fountain.

    Equally the kids can spen hours running around on the fibre optic lights in a paving slab

    I remember those evenings...the kids would play for hours in our "secret spot"

    Savor those moments (as I know you do) they pass too quickly.

    Another yes from me

    I honestly didn't think I would like it when Dh and I first went. I mean you hear how boring it is and how there is nothing to do, but I didn't find it that way at all. I thought it was relaxing and so nice to just slow down a bit and really look at things. I always have a good time there


    Now if my Mom and Dad go with us on this next trip we shall see what their opinion is
