“Lame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

There are hardly any rides. The Star Wars ride was very fun - we went on twice, and the morning ride was different from the afternoon ride, so that was great. My son loved the Pirates of the Caribbean encounter, but it was 35 min of standing in line and then 20 minutes standing through the feature - be prepared. The Aerosmith roller coaster was thrilling but short felt like less than 2 minutes. We had fast passes but still had to wait 20 minutes to get on - that qualifies as a moderate wait on Disney's own app! There wasn't much to this place - it feels like it was created to drain some of the crowd from the over-taxed Magic Kingdom. The Emperor has no clothes....

“Dated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were in and out of this park in under 4 hours. Queues of over an hour at all rides, overpriced poor quality food and a lack of decent attractions. The park needs to invest in some modern rides as Universal studios is far superior. There are too many shops and not enough rides to justify the entry fee. I will never set foot in this park again.

“Love”

I love love love this park! 50's prime time cafe is my absolute favorite place in all the 4 parks. Even the large, loud and annoying brazilian student tour groups could damper my fun.
