“One of the best days of my life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

This park is totally brilliant and is also my grandmothers favourite park. She's 70 and an adrenaline junkie especially loving the tower and terror and the rock n roller coaster by Aerosmith. Both of these were amazing rides and it's also the park which has Fantasmic - an amazing show!!

“Same old same old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Pretty much the same as I remember it from 8 years ago. For a mid-week January it was pretty crowded. All I could think about was what this would be like in August. for two rides we waited over 2 1/2 hours.

“Rides keep breaking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Every ride we go on today seems to breakdown. Park does not seem as well maintained or staffed as well as used to be.

“Small and not up to Magic Kingdom standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a nice park, but to me, Universal Studios is much better. This park has a couple shows and a couple rides which are good but not outstanding. Restaurants in the park include Sci Fi diner, 50s diner, Brown Derby and a cafeteria type place called commisary. Because of the limited number of restaurants, you have to make reservations or wait for quite a while. I tried to eat at the Sci Fi restaurant, but I got too hungry to wait any longer. My daughter liked it however. The Great Movie ride was good. There is a section of New York City streets similar to Universal Studios, but I think Universal Studios is bigger and better. Make sure to use the Fast Pass system as they sell out quickly. There is a parade at 3pm. I believe this is the same price as the other Disney parks, so if you can only choose one, choose Magic Kingdom or Epcot.

“Gotta go on Toy Story Mania”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

By far the most popular attraction. Get there very early or you could end up disappointed. Rest is getting a little tired now and I have to say the new Captain Jack experience almost dropped the score
