Fantsmic Opinion

The Fantasmic show at DLR is better, but I still prefer the one at DHS for all of the reasons that Fred stated.

The show stadium is such a huge assest to the show and makes it so much easier to enjoy. Plus even if you are not watching Fantasmic at DLR, you are still impacted by the crowd as it is all but impossible to do anything on that side of the park.

I just wanted to elaborate about the goat trick... out here at Disneyland (my home park being a native Southern Californian), the goat trick is actually something real and mind-blowing!!! Basically, our goat is on the right, up on a spire of the mountain, and as you go past him there's a very fast, steep turn to the right as well. If you focus on the goat, even turning your head to look behind you at it, as you go around the turn... AAAHHHHHHHHHHH! It's just the most disorienting, dizzying, FUN thing. Plus, a lot of the people in the train have no idea what you're doing which makes it that much more fun as they watch you lose your mind and scream your head off. It sounds silly but I recommend everyone try it at least once. Just not right after you eat.

Solo Dining:
  • Boardwalk Area: Absolutely Flying Fish, say "HI" to Lorna for me! ;-) Heck, dinner at the bar at Flying Fish is a reason to go on a solo trip!
  • MK resorts: Citrico's. Very nice place to eat on your own. It's quiet, and as a woman on your own, you'll be fine!

    I have some observations on the appeal of Le Cellier. I think it is one of the few fine dining experiences that is a single dining credit and in a theme park. It's good, but it is not as outrageously as good as Flying Fish, Citrico's, or bluezoo. Oh, and Fred, I like fish, too. Also, while I was born in the states, it was a couple of months after my parents emigrated from Toronto, Canada.

    Dave Brubeck is probably most famous for his chart, Take Five, in 5/4 time. It's a classic!

    Matt, I had no idea your tastes were so sophisticated, you preferring the studio and all that!

    We've been a few times to WDW when it's cold. My best advice is to wear warm socks and gloves. For me, I find that if my hands are warm, it helps the rest of me stay warm.
