    I can't imagine a person being an annual pass holder and going every single day if they truly hated every single thing at Disneyland. There must be something that they enjoy.

    For me, I go (not daily...or even weekly) because I love the old classics (HM, POTC, JC), the thrillers (Indy, BTMRR. Space Mtn), Buzz Lightyear, and a good ol' Mickey Mouse pretzel. Not to mention people watching!

    However, I am still miffed at the direction Disney is heading with the bulk of their Parks and Resorts plans for the future. Just not miffed enough to stop going and enjoying the things I do love.

    Exactly. Just because we complain about the current direction doesn't mean we don't love most of what the parks are still about. I think you meant to put Splash ('89) in the 90s hits not BTMRR.

    It seems like any thread over 10 pages inevitably has multiple pages devoted to bashing AP's in one form or another.

    Well if the APs would just shut up and stop complaining about everything no one would be bashing them. :mad:

    I'm just kidding. Haha :D

    Look who's talking! lol

    It's the complete opposite of "real life" me. I might be the least intimidating person you've ever met.

    It's awesome. He's also the highlight of the Haunted Mansion for me.

    Same. I happen to know someone who helped bring him back to life, so that makes him even more special.

    BTMRR has really moved up the list for me. When I was a younger, I didn't enjoy it as much because it's a relatively tame Coaster but over the last few years it's sky rocketed into my top 3 because of the excellent theming and how awesome it is at night. I don't even remember the last time I rode it during the day.

    Nighttime is the best. And I'm in that same boat. I used to never go on it, but as I got older and went with people who had never been, I saw it in a new way. The goat and final tunnel sequence are well worth the wait.

    And the best part is the wait isn't usually that bad and there are almost always FPs available, even late at night.

    In high school my friends and I set a Furby on fire. It was terrifying.

    I've always said they need to bring @Curious Constance up to par. We can't rely on Bob to do everything.

    What's wrong with bashing APs? Going daily or weekly and taking up all the parking spaces for an extrenely reasonable monthly fee while vacationers have a miserable experience and pay more is very wrong.
