Favorite Song

Favorite Drink

Pick an attraction to ride fro an entire day straight.

If Doug and Derek were WDW treats which would you be? ( will say what you are and you say what i am)

What disney movie would you like to see made into a live action movie?

If you are able to ride an attraction that has closed & is gone forever, What attraction would it be and why?

I googled what targets to aim for to become a galactic hero while waiting to ride.  When I won by a couple hundred thousand points my wife says I cheated and still try to say she won by default…. is this cheating or being resourceful?

Vacation Club worth it?

if you couldn’t ride any rides, which park would you choose to spend the day in and why?

Disney World is great but what is it missing? What desperately needs attention?

Which attraction makes Doug or Derek vomit the most?

Best Bathroom in each park?
