    What is the opposite of “commando?”

    I often heard of people going “commando” when visiting Disney World. They start their day with the “rope drop” and stay until the good night kiss. What would be the opposite of “commando”?

    With each of my visits to Disney World I find that a move farther away from spending every minute in the parks. Also, when in the park, I spend more time taking in the sites instead of riding the rides. What would be a good term for this?

    I think "vacation" sums it up pretty well.

    I guess if you aren't going commando - you're going pacifist!

    I think I would call the opposite of commando (in this context) "Dabbling in Disney"

    I don't know about "great" minds, but obviously some people are thinking in a totally different vein than at least two people.

    I thought when people talk about going "commando" They ment they where just going in hitting all the rides and attractions and really not taking in the parks and what's around them. But I did think about the underwear thing too!

    If you aren't touring "commando" style, then you are winging it. And sometimes "winging it" is fun too. Just going where the wind carries you. I tried to do a little of both on my trip down last week! I sort of let my daughter decide. She would say Haunted Mansion, I'd say, okay, then TTA, okay! We probaby crisscrossed the park more than usual, but it was fun to let her take the lead. It's fun to watch her little mind work. I will say, I did ride Goofy's Barnstormer about four times in a row. She's now a "frequent flyer"! HA!
