  1. You all missed the mark claiming that Richard Petty was a waste. One of my best experiences at WDW is when I took my brother and brother-in-law and we participated in the Richard Petty Experience. We really bonded after that. I hate to see it go as I have enjoyed it several times. My two cents.

    • Thanks Bob,

      I think Richard Petty and races at Disney World could have worked if they had built the facility at some other location away from the deluxe hotels. Having it at the Magic Kingdom caused noise issues so I only know of one race they had there and then it was closed to any races.
      We all did the Nascar experience at Richard Petty, except for Chris who was sick that day. It was a lot of fun. A tad hot since we did it in July, but I can see it being perfect on a cooler day.

  2. You recently discussed the cheer competitions at Disney and how they really knew how to handle the crowds. We recently stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort and it was terrible. There were so many cheerleaders running around and being noisy that you could not enjoy yourself. And forget about using the hot tubs after a long day at the park. It will be one of my top questions the next time I book a vacation as to were I can stay to avoid this.

    • Thanks Steve that’s good to know.
      I can see how a large group can take over the facilities and really make it difficult for the other guests to enjoy everything. We walked into the Disney Dolphin and Swam one time when there was a medical convention and all the restaurants were booked with business groups, the grounds covered in tents and medical banners and everyone was in suits and business attire. It did instantly make us feel like we should move on to a different resort since we were the only family in sight around the grounds of both hotels.
