Is there anyone out there who didn't particularly enjoy their first experience of WDW? Though it grieves me to admit it, I didn't particularly get the 'WOW' factor on our first trip to WDW. We stayed on International Drive, didn't have a car so getting to and from the parks was a bit of a struggle as our hotel shuttle left before any fireworks! I didn't know anything about ADRs (Advance Dining Reservations) so we only ate at counter service meals and the holiday also coincided with one of the worst tropical storms for over ten years. We had a hopper pass for five days and it was more like a military expedition as we furiously tried to cram in every single attraction with precision. We reasonably enjoyed it but thought that it would be our one and only trip to Orlando and went to Crete the following year. A brochure then arrived from Direct Holidays and I spotted Port Orleans and decided to try out a Disney resort. Having the freedom to come and go as we pleased did it for me and seeing Wishes on Main Street was my 'WOW' factor..........I was hooked! Anybody else feel the same?
