Weird. Are you sure you were wearing a magic band that is linked to your account. I've never had it not work on any attraction. How old is your magic band?

Yeah, I don't like that. It only seems to have worked a few of the times i've been on SDMT and the one time I went on FEA it didn't work either.

You do realise that a lot of people would have read 'Automagically' in Goofys voice :hilarious:

Where do you get the picture/video from SDMT? There's no photo location when you get off the ride.

Thanks - we haven't been to WDW for a couple of years and it would be nice to have some action pictures. Thanks for sharing your useful information. I always pay attention when you post something.

Yes--we have Annual Passes.

Great picture! Was the picture part of the PhotoPass / Memory Maker that Disney offers?

The video, while very short, is also pretty cool.

I don't know that it's been acknowledged anywhere, but the on ride photo quality for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is probably the best of any attraction.

Ninjaprincesst, last year it was my partner's first trip and I wanted it to be perfect. I booked many table service restaurants, like Californian Grill and Jiko. It was great and we had a good time, but when we got home and I asked him about the restaurants he liked the most and would like to experience again, do you think he mentioned any of the places I was looking forward to showing him? any of the expensive restaurants? Nope! The things he loved the most were basically from quick service, like the coconut meatball from the Polynesian and the fish and chips from Epcot. lol Our favorite memories from the trip and the special moments we had were not necessarily linked to specific rides and shows. Most of the magical moments, the ones that will be forever in our memories happened when we were interacting with some great cast members, the fun conversations we had with other people in line, the details we noticed together, the walk we had from Wilderness Lodge to Fort Wilderness. We always remember when we decided to walk from Hollywood Studios to Epcot instead of taking the boat. We remember the conversation we had and the plans we made during that walk. We remember the little girl in front of us when we were riding It's a Small World asking everybody to sing along. lol We remember when we got drenched riding Kali River Rapid. We laughed so much and had so much fun. We were kids again and we rode it again! We didn't talk about the lack of theming, the broken effects or how short the ride is. It didn't matter. We had fun! We had so much fun doing that together. We always talk about a great skipper we had at Jungle Cruise and how much we laughed. We always talk about the boat ride from Disney Springs to Port Orleans Riverside and then sitting on a bench watching the boats down the Sassagoula River. I never thought we would have that much fun in the wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon. We always talk about that day. The spontaneous moments usually are the ones that we end up enjoying the most. Rides are fun, parades are beautiful, shows are great, but they are not everything and missing some of them won't ruin a trip. Especially when you are with someone going for the first time. It's so magical watching the joy of a person experiencing Disney for the first time. It's so overwhelming and new that everything you said before and the expectations before the trip won't matter that much. Your boyfriend will experience things his way. He won't think about a specific show or parade. Only if you keep reminding him of what he is missing. He will be experiencing so many new things. Enjoy that. Enjoy yourselves together. Have fun together. You will have a great trip!

For the same reason anyone "hates on" any chain restaurant. None of those places are generally known for having the best food, the service is usually inconsistent, and the dishes often are bland or just feel like they're reheated or mass produced. You'll usually get much better food from a more authentic local place, wherever you go. (And this would apply to steakhouses, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, etc.) There are regional differences and tastes as well: I can find a dozen excellent Italian places within a 15 minute drive of my house, but it takes a bit more effort to find great Mexican. The pros of chains like Olive Garden places are that the food is usually plentiful (you leave feeling full), and prices are usually decent. You generally know what you're going to get, even if it's not really memorable in any way. The problem with a place like Tony's is they serve Olive Garden food at grossly inflated prices.

No OG hate here. :) We really like their Alfredo sauce (and bread sticks, salads, and soups). I've just not been impressed, at all, by the offerings at Tony's. Maybe they've improved over the past 15-18 months, but eating there in June 2015 it was sub-par, especially for the price.
