    What to do in Disney World?

    I'm leaving for a short vacation to Disney World (in Florida) tomorrow! I'm excited, because it'll be the first time I've gone since I was 10. The only thing is - I don't know what to do there. I arrive Monday late afternoon and leave Thursday at around noon. So in reality I only have 2 full days there. I was thinking of dedicating each of those days to one park.

    Does anyone who has gone recently/goes often have any suggestions? Any favorite parks, places to avoid, etc? From what little I can remember the last time I went, one night we went to Downtown Disney. Would that be any good for the first day, where I only have the night to do things? I also read about a water park, and it seems like good water park temperature all next week (low 80s), but that might just be to my winter-hardened northern body. Is the water park good, and would it likely be open at that temperature?

    Disneyworld is quite huge, if you had a week you might still not have time to see it all. If you like food and shopping, Epcot is a great place, with tastes from around the world. The Magic Kingdom is the heart of Disney, so you can't miss that. The Disney/MGM studio has the newest rides, like the "Tower of Terror", and the "Rock'n Rollercoaster". You shouldn't miss either of these. Downtown Disney is a cool place to spend the evening, it's a more adult atmosphere than the rest of Disney. I haven't visited Typhoon Lagoon (the water park) so I don't have any info to share.

    Have fun!

    Drop the kids off at the Animal Kingdom, go to the water park and watch the MILFs.

    I hear there are guide plans that will maximize the amount of stuff you can see by minimizing wait times.

    It's very easy to spend an entire day at Epcot center.

    Downtown Disney: Raglan Road Irish Pub. The food is decent, but the Guinness is outstanding.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    And very easy to get sick for the rest of the entire day when you do the "Spaceship Earth" ride. I was queasy after being talked into that ride that has only one purpose . . . to get you sick.

    That ride actually had barf bags. There are 2 different versions/tickets of it. One made my wife queasy. The other made her VERY QUEASY. I didn't see much point in the less queasy version.

    How in the world can one get sick in such a slow paced ride? Or are you talking about the one that replaced horizons.

    It has to do with all the spinning/twisting/hurling the capsule does in relation to what you are seeing on the monitor planted 3 inches from your face. Oh yeah, you WILL get sick. I recommend Willmw's answer; just go for the version that advertises you will get sick. The sissy version is for, well, sissies.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    as soon as you see Mickey run up and punch him in the ****in' face!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Be prepared to be shocked and disgusted by the 6, 7, and 8 year old kids being pushed in strollers.
