    @Honey we have been. As far as atmosphere goes, it’s really cool. Food leaves a lot to be desired, so it’s just kinda midrange for me.

    So, as a childless adult doing Disney/Universal I basically want to spend as much time in the parks as possible. We had three 16 hour days and the rest were 12-14 hour days. We only had 4 hours sleep before getting back up and going to the airport yesterday, so I fell asleep immediately when I sat down on the plane and only woke up when the pilot announced we were beginning our descent and then slept 11 hours last night :lol:

    This is why R and I did a big WDW trip before having kids :lol:

    There were 2 big trips on our before kids list, WDW and Europe. And a big part of why our Europe trip was Italy + Paris was because of Disneyland Paris.

    Well I know where some of my stimulus money is going. Tiki room inspired merch for May!! Someone posted it in an annual Passholder group, I’m trying to find more info now.

    @Erie I remember when you were not interested in Disney much at all. :lol:

    It has very quickly sucked me in and turned me into a real Florida person! It just makes me so happy to be there. K was so against it except for Star Wars stuff but he’s also changed his tune haha

    Ahhhhhhhh, I can’t wait for our Disney date! It really is so much fun. We have such a good time even just being there for a few hours and wandering around.

    They are re-theming splash mountain to princess and the frog and I am devastated. What’s next, it’s a small world???

    I don't know Disney very well, so this is a legit question--was there not a princess and the frog attraction before? You would think there would be.

    @moose did you not know that it was themed after song of the south, a movie so racist they’ve been ashamed to show it for years? A long overdue good riddance to bad rubbish, I say.

    oh I am okay with getting rid of the racist connotations for the ride but I like SOME Disney attractions that are non-princess related. Just like how I was devastated they put frozen into the Norway pavilion. At least re-theme with something worthwhile!

    The only black princess (or really, major MC) replacing one of the most racist movies is pretty appropriate imo

    And, I mean, this isn't like legendary Disney World. Splash Mountain didn't exist when I was a kid even though both parks had been open for many years.

    Really? I feel like splash mountain is iconic

    1989, hardly iconic

    I'm admittedly not a Disney person; I've never heard of it, and the park had been open for 20 years before it was built so :shrug:

    i know years-wise but I think of it as a classic. Maybe just me.

    It’s a classic, sure, but racist is racist and a retheme is long overdue.

    I mean, how can it be so iconic if you didn't know what Disney film it related to?
