    We saw LMA in 2006, 2007, 2008 and it was always the same show with the jet skis. I agree that some shows, like LMA, are not worth seeing every year. This year, I decided if we did go to see it, we would schedule LMA for the afternoon. A thunderstorm saved us from the long climb up the stairs. Oh well, let's go have a drink and laugh at the Muppets instead.

    Matt, I have to go against you on Laugh Floor. My kids love it, but they won't do Turtle Talk anymore, because of the line and it's not as funny.

    I've also got to agree with your food critic, Len, on Tusker House. We ate lunch there in May, and it was not good. The food was cold, very heavy for a hot day, and the service was poor. I'd rather have gone to Flame Tree.

    Speaking of Off Kilter, I was talking to Mark from the band after the marathon this past year and he made it sound like he was going to participate in more marathons and races to come. Might be a good idea to get Mark on the show for your marathon show?

    What time is the 4 o'clock parade?

    I loved Flights of Wonder. I even mentioned it in my most recent blog. My wife rolled her eyes but I dragged her on it anyways. She loved it.

    Matt you MUST go to Festival of the Lion King...I mean if you love Nemo you'll enjoy FOTLK, it's our favorite live show in all property.

    I was surprised to learn that the Indiana Jones show can be canceled or modified (parts left out) during rain. I figured it wouldn't be an issue since the seating and stage is covered, but when we went in May (the week of torrential rain), our show was pretty heavily curtailed due to the rain. I guess it's too slippery for the performers, or maybe the explosives don't work right?

    Just thought I would share, because I was a little bummed I didn't get to see it all!

    Comments on the shows....

    Not a fan of LMA action at all....I have seen it once and I was bored. I have no intention of ever seeing it again..it was not worth my time.

    Flights of Wonder...I don't dislike birds but I've seen very good shows at our local zoo and have no desire to see it. Nothing compels me to see it.

    I agree with Len...Finding Nemo is in my bottom three of Pixar movies. I agree it wasn't very funny...it was too slowly paced, the shark scene bogged the movie down a lot and I thought Albert Brooks brought down the entire mood of the movie.

    Off Kilter Rocks!!

    So... Voyage of the Little Mermaid counts as a stage show... but Playhouse Disney: Live on Stage does not? At least... it wasn't covered in the Studios portion...
    This episode is for frequent visitors

    This episode's show reviews are good for frequent visitors, but for infrequent visitors, some of the comments (such as "the show is the same every time") are inapplicable or useless. If you only get to visit WDW once every 5-10 years, then you might want to see every show every time you visit. The WDW Today crew should keep in mind that their listeners aren't all frequent visitors.
