    Close your eyes and blink yourself to WDW!

    If you could blink your eyes and be anywhere in WDW (parks, resorts, restaurants, etc.) where would it be? It can be something recent, from the distant past, or just something you daydream about and wish to experience.

    P.S. In full disclosure I found this question on AllEars.net that was posed to readers in 2006. Some of the posts were so neat to read it made you want to be there even more!

    Re: Close your eyes and blink yourself to WDW!

    I don't know why but I have been thinking of Adventureland Veranda alot lately, I remember enjoying sitting there at an outside table and having some really good meals there. I remember in particular some kind of rice dish that I think had pinapple in it and maybe some pork. I loved that place and could never understand why they closed it only to put nothing there. A real disappointment. Loved to sit outside and hear the sounds of Adventureland and people watch. So, in answer to your question, if I could blink my eyes, I would want to go to Adventureland Veranda!
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I would be right back in '97 watching my daughter meet Minnie for the first time.

    I agree! I'd be standing in the queue right as the line ramps up into the attraction (by the mural). There's always a smell coming out from the loading area of the ride that's just so perfectly WDW.

    Standing on Main Street looking at the castle with my wife and kids. Just soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the excitement on my kids' faces!

    I'm in line at Splash Mountain, and getting close enough to smell the "Disney water smell!" You guys know what I'm talking about!

    Do they still send you to get checked out if you fall in at Jungle Cruise? Or was that just another urban legend?

    I think you should get checked if you fall off any ride at WDW, and I mean mentally. Perhaps tram doors on the Jungle Cruise are in order.
