“Plenty of Action”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We spent a day here in August and found there were plenty of attractions to keep my 9 year old boy and 7 year old girl busy. I would definitely recommend Toy Story (get a fast pass or ride early in the morning),Tower of Terror (if you are brave enough),Lights Motors Action Extreme Stunt show,and don't forget Voyage of the Little Mermaid or Disney Junior live on stage for the little ones-just to mention a few!!! Can't wait till or next visit!!!!

“Great Park - lots to do!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is a great park to visit and the nice thing is that a lot of the attractions don't require super long waits. You are often entering an amphitheatre that holds thousands, so you don't have the huge lines that you get at other parks.

New on this trip: Star Tours now has new videos in it - the 20 year old graphics are gone, and C3PO is now driving the ship! If you go back around there are more than one adventure, so you can go trough several times and have a different experience!

Raiders of the lost ark is always fun, as is the stunt car show. We hit it on a rainy day in September, and had no waiting for riding the Tower of Terror. We didn't get to the studio back lot due to lightning, but that has been fun on past trips.

My favorite thrill ride in Disney is the Rockin Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith. You accelerate into the ride very fast and find yourself in the dark doing a loop de loop. I didn't find it scary but thrilling, and I'm not a big roller coaster fan.

Another little known area is the animation class where you learn to draw a Disney character. They do this every half hour and rotate the Characters so you can come back and will likely get to do a different character each time. I did a very passable drawing of Goofy that is a ready-made souvenir. If you do this, ask the people in the gift shop outside the exit for a rubber band and a plastic bag to carry your drawing in and preserve for the ride home.

It is a very fun park and I recommend it highly!

We just been here today and just were there 3 hours. I mean i was here 12 years ago and 80procent is still the same. When you go for the holywood stunt tram, there are even the old tvs in the boxes. The other still old and you see even in Disney quest everything so old.
I mean i am not that picky, but we paid 99,90usd for it. I just would expect more. I just guess that Disney has financial problems, as I come from Europe and Disney Paris has couple of years big troubles in financial area.
Just heard Epcot would be on better technical level so wll try that.
