    Disney World: Mad dashes, exhausting schedules and enervating weather
    It seems as if this women is trying to make all of her other trips seem not so bad to her critics. I understand that she is in titled to her opinion, but because of how malicious she was it seemed that she was not going to like it no matter what. If you think I'm crazy then look at the last page. Notice, she said her son would rather go to Ireland than Disney world. Her 12 year old son. Now if thats not proof that she is jaded than i don't know what is.

    You've also got to remember that they're APers to DL and DL is their "home park". They're so used to it that WDW is way too much.

    Read the article and I guess WDW is not for everyone, but it sure is for us.

These wonderful days consisted of sleeping in, enjoying a sit down breakfast in the hotel, and hanging out by the pool all day. Now with 4 parks, two water parks, downtown disney, and mini golf, etc., it is almost impossible to relax on the vacation (without making significant sacrifices). Thoughts?
    I disagree. I visit WDW from Sunday through Thursday on my trips. I usually only spend one day doing all four parks, and then one of the holiday parties on the Sunday. Monday and Wednesday are for relaxing or doing side things (shopping at the outlets, driving the the hotels to walk around, etc), and then Downtown Disney for shopping and lunch before heading back to the airport on Thursday. PLENTY of time to relax. If they added a fifth gate, I'd probably just spend a bit less time at the Studios, since there is barely anything to see there, anyway. Plus, I've SEEN the country pavillions already... there is NEVER anything new to see or do. It seems that World Showcase gets burned whenever it comes to updates. So I could skip that portion of Epcot to fit in another park. In reality, it's much easier to do than you'd think.

    This thread is kind of like "their are to many great Beatles songs.", or I have just way too much money". I mean if you like the Beatles but their are to many songs, by the greatest hits, and if you have much money, some away. So if their are to many parks for you, just don't go to all of them.

    No. To me it's more like "There are so many lousy beatles albums. They should strive for quality over quantity."

    Re: Has Disney World become TOO big?

    oh no not a Beatles "holy war" now...

    but Mike i agree... my thoughts are more for the 1st time WDW visitor... the one who needs to see "it all..." i can accept that on a trip i will not see "it all..." but like yourself i have no problems returning and seeing more at the expense of things that ive already seen previously or something that hasnt been updated...

    Plus, Joe, the ticket prices are ridiculously cheap when you start adding on days. Even for first-time visitors, I cannot wrap my brain around seven or more straight days at the parks. It's just not necessary. The Studios are a half day park. Animal Kingdom is, too, though it takes a while to walk to each land.

    I don't mind the scope of WDW but I really believe the quality of the product has slipped with every additional park. The attention to detail has decreased and I think it's because they have stretched their maintenance too thin.

    Re: Has Disney World become TOO big?

    Now with me, I'm a "stop and smell the roses" type of person, so to me, AK, DHS, and MK are all full day parks. AK might be a little over a day. World Showcase is a day in itself and Future World is a half day. It's just so much to attempt to do without spending $6000 on a two week vacation. And that's not including resort hopping, "off the beaten path" type stuff, etc.

    Re: Has Disney World become TOO big?

    plus mike if your like yourself or me who might go every year... you get an AP... if i get an AP in aug of 2011 it will be good until aug 2012... i would just plan my next WDW trip for June or July... using the AP to its fullest extent...

    an AP costs $531 a person... so its roughly $1061 for my g/f and i...

    if i do 2 sets of 7 day park hopper passes it would be $355 a person... approx $1400

    so the way i see it the tickets arent all that expensive to return twice in a year... at least the way i see it... and it makes you feel a little better having an AP to walk into say Epcot just to get dinner at Le Cellier

    sorry for all the math...

    Re: Has Disney World become TOO big?

    I buy a seven day pass, without expiration, and it literally lasts me five to seven years. On most trips, I only visit the parks for one day, so I have six more years worth of visits ahead of me, all for the $400 the initial pass costs.
