When most people think of going to Walt Disney World, they think of riding a few of their favorite attractions, watching a parade, maybe getting a bite to eat and calling it a day. But, for those of us who spend more time thinking about Disney World than anything else, hitting a few attractions and getting a quick bite to eat isn't going to cut it. We want to do it all and we will accept nothing less. But with so many things to do at Walt Disney World, some of the funnest things get left out.
