Favorite thing to which you love to introduce 1st timers - rope drop at Magic Kingdom or fireworks/projections/music at Cinderella castle?

My initial reaction was fireworks, but then I really started to think about watching people at Magic Kingdom. Seen so many 1st timers, of all ages, start crying when they get that first look at Cinderella Castle from the square, looking all the way down Main Street USA. I'd say rope drop at Magic Kingdom would be more fun.

Resurrect a retired Dark ride:
Snow White's Scary Adventure or Mr Toad's Wild Ride?

Just because Smow White is represented elsewhere, I'll go with Mr. Toad's Wild Ride! (I also don't remember going on this. )

Have restaurants currently closed re-open or have the currently open former buffets change back to buffets?

Happily, it sounds like both are happening soon! But I would have said all closed restaurants opening would have been my first choice. My wife and I have discussed this on road trips to see family. We kind of like the idea of the places with character meets staying with the "family style" service. You're not watching to see where, say, Tigger is at Crystal Palace to determine if you've got time to run up to the buffet for another waffle or two!

On the subject of character meals, do you prefer:
The normal routine, with characters visiting table to table or
Having a couple of characters to meet and get a picture with after checking in and maybe a few more on the way out, instead of them going table to table?

Definitely meet & greet before and after the meal, maybe even wandering around waving but not stopping at tables. I was never that big on character meet & greets. Much happier to see them out & about where I can cheerfully wave to them and be about my day!


Speaking of characters - would you rather see Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride or The Rock on The Jungle Cruise ride? Dressed as & acting in character of course.

I'm going with Johnny Depp/Captain Jack Sparrow. Truly love those movies!

If you could be in a park on your birthday, would you:

Let the world know for those extra little perks or just keep it to yourself?

I wear that Happy Birthday button so everyone can see it!!

What would be a great extra magic moment for you?

Get a pass to the front of line or ride your favorite ride 2x in a row without getting off/standing in line again?

Give me an instant re-ride and watch me smile!

You can pick an attraction for a full behind the scenes tour:
Splash Mountain or Pirates of the Caribbean?

Splash Mountain! (Although I never really want to see behind the magic!)

Considering that Disney is going to charge their hotel guests for magic bands, would you buy one or just use the Disney app on your phone for most things?

We always end up each picking out a special one for each trip - they really make some cool ones. So paying for it won't be unusual for us. I hate having to have a dang phone at hand all the time, too.

The Disney Genie/Genie +/Lightning Lane: Will it:
Work as planned and be here to stay or be a fantastic failure that blows up in Disney's face?

I want it to blow up in their face quite frankly. (Along with the 30min extra morning magic.)

Which recently reopened restaurant are you more looking forward to on your next trip?
Casey's Corner or Columbia Harbor House?

Columbia Harbour House! Love sitting upstairs by a window watching the folks walking around. And their cobbler with vanilla creme sauce is my favorite quick service dessert!

More worth the wait:
Slinky Dog Dash or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train?

Seven Dwarfs - I think the theming is more immersive and I like how its inside & outside. (Both are pretty short rides though.)

You're getting your face-painted, cause why not?!

Star Wars or Avatar character?

I grew up with the characters of Star Wars, so they have the edge.

Soarin' over California scents (salty surf, orange groves, pine trees) or Soarin' Around the World scents (African grasses, tropical/ocean of Fiji, Jasmine)?
