If you get a chance to go to Epcot make sure you check out the United Kingdom area, they have some really funny stuff. I love the Street Acts, where they do skits right in front of everybody. These are really entertaining because their interactive with the crowd. The Disney people will ask for volunteers to come on Stage and it's always hilarious. I like going to The Canadian Area, as the Canada Showcase is the place for food. If you like beef dishes, canadian people really know how to make a steak. We think it's worth the money to come to the parks, and yes it is expensive. If you can somehow swing the annual pass, then you can really save and enjoy more of the experience. The budget hotels do find for us and we typically stay at All-Star Music Resort.
