Monday about Me!

Like that title?  I'm hoping I can convince both Mel and Melissa to do the same thing - they can just add a few extra letters and be ready to go *hint, hint*

Over at Chip and Co, where I am "on staff," we all did Chip's version of a Disney survey to let all of the readers get to know a little more about us..  I wanted to elaborate on that a little more with my own Disney survey!  And yes, back in the live journal days (and even early days of MySpace), I was one of those people that constantly did surveys.. not sure what that says about me.. So, here goes!

Let start:
First Theme Park Memory: Opryland! I remember my sister dragging me on my first coaster, riding my first loop next to my friends' mom because I was so scared, and collecting little glass figurines for $1 each!
First memorable Disney trip: After dropping my sister off for her first year in college at the U of F, my parents took me for a couple of days. I was 10 - I know we went before, but this is the earliest recollection
First Disney Resort Memory: Staying at the Grand Floridian during 6th or 7th grade while my dad was on a business trip.  My clearest memory - Hulk Hogan filming a movie or tv show on the beach.
Last Disney Trip: You all probably know this one! January for the WDW Marathon Weekend - running my first (and not last!) half marathon!
Next Disney Trip: January 2012 for the WDW Marathon Weekend!! Sticking to the half :)

Into the Parks - Magic Kingdom
Tomorrowland - Favorite Ride Past and Present: I had to do past and present, but I remember riding Delta Dreamflight and loving it as a kid.  Present?  As much as I loved DDF, I do love Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin... and Space Mountain.  Both absolute musts for me!
Fantasyland- There has only ever been 1 - Peter Pan
Liberty Square - Haunted Mansion, no doubt about it!
Frontierland- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Adventureland - Pirates... Other than Pirates, we generally skip over Adventureland..Not much of Dole Whip people, either.  I know, I know..

Futureworld Attraction - Though this is a tough call - no trip is complete without at least 1 trip on Spaceship Earth, I love Soarin'
Futureworld Restaurant - Sunshine Seasons.  Yum!
World Showcase:
Favorite Snack - Bavarian Pretzel, German Pavilion
Favorite Drink - A Margarita in Mexico, or a glass of Rosa Regale in Italy
Favorite Meal - Having been a day tripper for so long, I haven't had too many sit down dinners around the World.. But, going against popular word of mouth, one of my favorite meals/experiences was at the Moroccan Pavilion at Restaurant Marrakesh - the meal was awesome and we walked in without reservation... of course, the same thing happened in January at Le Cellier, and that truly was one of the most incredible meals ever...

Favorite Animal Kingdom Attraction - Rafiki's Planet Watch Conservation Station!

Favorite Hollywood Studios Attraction- Toy Story Midway Mania

Favorite Non-Park Restaurant - Kouzzina by Cat Cora at the Boardwalk!

Top 5 Disney animated movies - I can't include Pixar.. that would be an impossible list!
In no true order:

  • Peter Pan
  • Lion King
  • Aladdin
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Fantastia/Tangled/Princess and the Frog 

What did I forget?  I'm sure so much!!  If you're a survey-geek like me, definitely add this to your blog or wherever, but I'd love if you link back and comment so I can read about you, too!!


  1. What a FUN idea! I copied it to my blog and answered the questions!

  2. Great idea! I just posted it on my blog & linked back to you. I used to visit Opryland too. :o)
