    Planning DVD

    So I'm sitting here watching the newest planning DVD, need my Disney fix. Was wondering...if you could improve the planning DVD Disney sends out, what would you do? Personally I would make the resort portion a little longer. I don't think they give enough time to each one.

    I agree completely! I wish they had more on the resorts. If I had some things to add, it would definately be add a section for the amazing WDW resturants. People that may have never been to WDW might not know all of the great meals they offer. If I am not mistaken they do not show a section on there correct? I haven't seen the planning DVD in a while.

    I think the average park goer could use more information on the special events: marathon weekend, Star Wars, Flower and Garden, etc, instead of focusing the special events section almost entirely on Christmas.

    I've got friends who went and almost quoted Lou when he said, "We got tired of burgers and fries all the time." I started mentioning places like Boma, Coral Reef, Garden Grill, Yak and Yetti, Boma, 50's Prime Time, SciFi Dine In, Chrystal Palace, Chef Mickey's, Boma, Mama Melrose, etc. He couldn't believe all that his family missed. I said those are just a few of my favorites; there are hundreds of great restaurants at WDW that don't serve burgers and fries.

    Nice to see some more south Alabama folks on, and active. My SIL is the same way though-burgers and hot dogs. Grief-how about ANY of the amazing restaurants on property-Like Chef Mickey's???

    In Her defense she did try a few of them the last time they went.

    Oh, WAR EAGLE!!!!!!

    I would explain Fast Pass a little better for first timers, emphasize the attraction and not just the rides and cover the various Restaurants better. So many dining choices, so little coverage.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    You started and finished so strong but the middle was WEAK.
    ROLL TIDE!!!! Great idea on the Fast Pass....when the system was new, they explained it a lot better than they do on the more recent videos.
