    A New Look at WDW?

    I'm going to Disney World this October. I have been going every single year twice a year for two weeks each since first grade - I am now a sophomore in college.

    I was wondering if anybody has any off-the-wall things or something similiar that we probably haven't done or thought of? Or places to eat? My friend reccomended eating with an imagineer or going on a tour - things like that for an example!

    We're staying at the Swan. Usually our favorite things to do are World Showcase at Epcot (I think we'll be there for the Taste festival) or miniature golf. I'm a 20-year-old female and taveling with my mom and 17-year-old sister.

    THANK YOU!

    There's a tour you can do in Epcot's World Showcase on Segways, those cool little 2-wheeled things. They take you thru a guided tour, and then let you loose to putter around on your own. Sounds like fun!

    Have you ever had Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian?

    Have you ever had a haircut at the barbershop on Main Street? They will put in color hair gel and Pixie dust.

    Expensive, but have you ever eaten at the California Grill on top of the Contemporary?

    For about $110 a person you can ride in the Richard Petty Race Car. at the Speedway located near the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    Have you shared a Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream?

    Have you had your silouhette done on Main Street?

    I suppose you have eaten at the castle.

    Have you ever done Mickey's Backyard Barbeque at Fort WIlderness?

    Get yourself a copy of the Passporter Guide book. They have a lot of good suggestions in them. Bookstores are full of Disney books, with ideas in them.

    I have done all of these except Richard Petty and the Kitchen SInk, which is way too much icecream, but there is so many cool and wonderful things to do at WDW.

    A few items that it took me a awhile to try, but they were worth it:

    The family-style banquets at Wilderness Lodge; plenty of grub and terrifically funny servers.

    Renting a boat and just putting around for awhile (Swan and Dolphin guests may still get a price break).

    Make sure to "thoroughly" check out World Showcase... Mexico, China, Morocco, and Great Britain in particular are much larger areas than they look from the promenade.

    Have a great time!

    My Little Bro won a MK tour off of VMK that he is going to give me. Anyone know what that is all about?

    Here's the Epcot scoop...
    This is what you can do for extended fun...

    Princess Breakfast at Norway
    Tour the World Segway tour through World Showcase
    DiveQuest (for licensed divers only) available after LS rehab
    Sit curbside for the British Invasion at UK after dark, it's really great.
    Get lost in the Moroccan alleys
    Talk to a cast member in every country, even if it's only saying hi!
    Fish and Chips at UK...totally wonderful!

    That's only the tip of the iceberg!
