I have never...........Disney WorldWalt Disney World: Confess now.... What have you never done at Walt Disney World?
From Anthony MurphyThis is a little bit of a fun discussion and a bit of a confession. I want to know what you have never done at Walt Disney World.
Posted July 6, 2013 at 6:23 PM
For example.....(and this is true)
I have never eaten at Norway (its the only restaurant actually in the parks that I haven't tried at least once).
I'll Do it for Universal Next
Comments in chronological order. Most recent at the bottom. Scroll down to respond.

From Mark FairleighI've never done anything at Hollywood Studios, besides The Great Movie Ride...well, I did leave after only the one ride and a quick lunch. The park layout was way too chaotic for me...who designed the place?? Picasso??

From Andrew DoughertyNever rode anything at EPCOT.

From James KoehlI have never seen a parade at any WDW park that hasn't been spoiled by rude, stupid, obnoxious people blocking everyone's view by standing in front of everyone else, including those in wheelchairs and children, and the groups of Brazilian kids who push and shove others out of the spots we had waited in for hours and then pretend to not understand English. I've given up actually seeing a parade- I just watch them on YouTube.

No, I'm not bitter.
From Rob PastorI have never had a day at WDW when a double wide stroller, carrying kids way too old for a stroller, didn't bump into me.

From Rob PastorDominick: It actually takes more guts to ride Ellen (Energy) than TOT, primarily since it's such a boring lame outdated attraction. LOL
Posted July 7, 2013 at 7:16 AM
From Bryce McGibenyI have never done Carousel of Progress, Jungle Cruise (wow, I know!), Swiss Family Robinson Tree House, Tomorrowland Speedway, Astro Orbiter, Magic Carpets, Lights Motors Action!, Backlot Tour, The American Idol Experience, all World Showcase films, Captain EO, The Circle of Life, Turtle Talk with Crush, Flights of Wonder, Finding Nemo: The Musical, Rafiki's Planet Watch and Festival of the Lion King.

From Daniel EtcheberryAnthony, the restaurant in Norway is nothing special. It's fun for little girls as Disney's princesses make their rounds at dinner time, but that's it.
Posted July 7, 2013 at 8:51 AM
I have never ridden Everest, Thunder Mountain, Peter Pan (guests need to be ambulatory), Rock N' Roller Coaster.
As you can see, I'm not a big fan of coasters.
From David L.Not including snack bars and M&Gs, I have never ridden/seen/whatever/eaten at...
Posted July 7, 2013 at 10:07 AM
-the New Tiki Room (But I did see the old)
-the boat ride in the rivers of America
-Liberty Tree Tavern (Big regret)
-Columbia Harbor House (Big regret)
-Pinocchio Village Haus
-Most of Innoventions (Big regret)
-The Little Mermaid show
-Festival of the Lion King (Big Regret)
Is that what you call "a little too thorough?"
From Gabriel RossI have never killed anyone at Disney World and I don't think I ever will since I'm afraid of heights. Also I haven't done the new part of Fantasyland. I'll wait until crowds die down (no pun intended), which will be never lol.

From TH CreativeI have never paid to park at a Walt Disney World resort hotel.
Posted July 7, 2013 at 10:40 AM
From N BWell, we all knew that was coming from TH...
Posted July 7, 2013 at 11:25 AM
I could go on and on about our Disney experiences, but I just don't have the desire to complain about anything anymore.
I can honestly say I have never waited less than an hour for any ride or attraction.... fun times.
From Manny BarronThe comment above reminds me...
Posted July 7, 2013 at 1:02 PM
I have never waited more than 40 minutes for an attraction at Disney World.
I've been to WDW 5 times, (4 in summer, once in mid-December) and with use of fastpass and some basic knowledge of how crowds work(like Magic Kingdom being delightfully not crowded after 8 pm), I rarely wait for more than 30 minutes in lines at Disney World.
From James TrexenI have never seen the Yeti move at Animal Kingdom.
Posted July 7, 2013 at 1:25 PM
From Mike GallagherWithout getting specific, since I haven't been recently and have only visited about 5-6 times in my life...
Posted July 7, 2013 at 4:41 PM
I have never been in EPCOT
I have never been in AK
I have never been on the Johnny Depp Of The Caribbean ride.
From Kelly MuggletonI have never stayed on property.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 2:38 AM
I have never been in love with EPCOT.
I have never been on the Astro Orbitor.
I have never been on either ride in Mexico or Norway pavillions.
From TH CreativeI have never posted a comment noting that Walt Disney World does not charge resort guests for parking, that hasn't garnered a grumpy response from NB.

From Brian EmeryNever been on It's a small world..
Posted July 8, 2013 at 10:09 AM
And never will.....
From Rob PastorBrian: After riding It's A Small World, a couple of Morgan Rum & Cokes, back at your hotel resort, go down really well.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 10:53 AM
From Brian EmeryHey Rob, I bet you needed them... I have never been interested in that ride... Actually we never go in that area of MK.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 11:16 AM
I wonder if Disney would replace it someday... Or would the backlash be too much to handle?
From Mike GallagherDespite the bashing the ride takes from the "enthusiast community," I believe the backlash, should they plan to remove it, would be quite severe. And I say this as a non-fan of the ride.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 11:41 AM
From Rob PastorMike: I think you're right. I could see rabid fanbois hanging discarded Small World dolls from every lamp post in Fantasyland. Then they'll storm the Beast's castle with their pitchforks raised in anger. It could get really ugly.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 1:06 PM
From TH CreativeI have never ridden 'It's a Small World' after drinking a couple of Morgan and Cokes.
Posted July 8, 2013 at 1:34 PM

From Michelle KowalskiI have never been to Tom Sawyers Island or the Swiss family tree house. They seem kind of out of the way.
Posted August 3, 2013 at 7:35 PM
From Tony DudaI have visited one or more Walt Disney World theme parks on 172 different days and have never stayed even one night in a WDW hotel. Never rode Kali River Rapids. Never did Kim Possible or Agent P adventure at Epcot. Never did Sum of All Thrills. I don't care about character dining so only did Garden Grill with Chip & Dale & Goofy.
Posted August 4, 2013 at 2:08 PM
From Brandon TownsendSince my first trip in '77 I've never eaten at Cinderella's Royal Table. However, that will change in October as I have made reservations for lunch for my family and myself.
Posted August 4, 2013 at 1:46 AM
From Tayler Ann MordenJust a couple quick notes. ....
Posted August 7, 2013 at 12:39 PM
Bryce - carousel of progress is a must see. Make time when you go again. I have the show downloaded on my iPad so i can have the memory when i need cheering up.
David L - the rotating restaurant has the best catfish i have ever eaten. I thought it would be gross but was incredible.
I love Its a Small World. I feel like Walt is riding beside me whenever i ride. I have a picture of the ferris wheel my dad took in 72 when he was still alive, and i take a pic every time i go to compare. (Yes there have been changes).
Now for my nevers...
I have never been on Pinocchio, Indy or Alice at Disneyland.
I have not been able to catch Splash Mountain open since 2004. It is always under refurb when we go in Jan/Feb.
I have not been to new fantasyland.
From Tony DudaTayler, in 'it's a small world' do you have a picture of the boy in the balloon basket with the "Help Me" sign? It was removed within the last few years, don't know exactly when. Another PC refurb idiocy.
Posted August 7, 2013 at 2:56 PM
From Frank PrshaI have never been on Rock'n' Roller coaster.
