*** It should be noted that this applies more to the United States (especially Walt Disney World) than it does to the non-American resorts. While ''Lilo & Stitch'' is not ''un''popular in America, the misguided overmarketing of the latter character and vitriol given towards SGE! has impacted his reception there, and now only Stitch is available for meet-and-greets on a regular basis in Magic Kingdom, while Lilo can now only be met at a character breakfast at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort alongside him. As for any other ''Lilo & Stitch'' characters? Well, there's merchandise of [[DistaffCounterpart An]][[LoveInterest gel]] (she's even got [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/File:Stitch_and_Angel_WDW_Girls%27_Lace_Tee.jpg WDW-exclusive]] [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/File:WDW_-_Angel_on_Castle.jpg merchandise,]] [[UnexpectedCharacter believe it or not]]), but that's really it. It should also be mentioned that the U.S. does not have Stitch Encounter/Stitch Live! at all, whereas all the non-U.S. resorts have it (or had in the cast of Hong Kong).

Americans will have to fly to Europe or especially Japan [[NoExportForYou to meet her and some of the other experiments]]. It should also be mentioned that the U.S. [[NoExportForYou does not have Stitch Encounter/Stitch Live! at all, all]], whereas all the non-U.S. resorts have it (or had in the cast case of Hong Kong).

*** In fact, Miceage.com (where a lot of these fans go for news on the parks) has coined names for the two factions: foamers (i.e., fans who "foam at the mouth" with excitement over the next product announced and love Disney so much that they will tolerate no criticism AT ALL of the product) and gnashers (i.e., fans who "gnash their teeth" at Disney for JumpingTheShark (at least at Walt Disney World (though Disneyland is certainly not immune to this, given that this is the only Disney park Walt actually lived to see)) and that Universal has created so much superior product that anything Disney does is automatically ridiculed and that Disney has so declined that it will never recover). There is a whole article on [[http://micechat.com/69324-gnashers-foamers/ that very subject here]].

** Several rides have a lot more staying power than you would assume: It's no secret that people ''LOVE'' Space Mountain or Splash Mountain. But you know what ride is ''still'' one of the most popular, even amongst adults? Peter Pan's Flight. Along with Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and the Matterhorn Bobsleds, that ride fills up ''fast''.

And it isn't one of the Fastpass attractions, so it's considered to be one of the toughest to get into.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Ride/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyMissionBreakout'' has its many detractors who still miss its predecessor, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, as well as its many supporters who not only think the ride is nothing more than unabashed fun, but because of that, and the fact that the ride has six different drop sequences that go with six different songs from the mixtape, makes it BETTER than Tower of Terror.

** And don't even get us started on the "Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout" ride replacing the Tower of Terror. Quite a lot of people who missed the latter attraction complained about its demise, and now that the former has officially opened, [[UnpleasableFanbase a lot of them are STILL complaining.]]

** California Adventure's 2017 replacement for ''Ride/TheTwilightZoneTowerOfTerror'', ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy - Mission: Breakout'', has already garnered a rather large {{hatedom}} among people who dread the [=ToT=]'s disappearance.

** Disney's Animal Kingdom park is this to some. Despite being the biggest of the four main Walt Disney World parks, most of the space is given over to the animals and can't be accessed by the public. Thus, it has the smallest number of conventional rides and attractions and the walking-to-experiencing ratio isn't very high; those not fond of experiencing the wonders of nature especially don't find it appealing. With one of the the park's main selling points being based on one of Disney's [[Disney/{{Dinosaur}} most obscure and least popular movies]], and their biggest-ticket attraction essentially being Disneyland's Matterhorn on steroids, very few people who visit Disney World consider Animal Kingdom as their favorite of the parks. This may change with the recent opening of Rivers of Light, followed by the opening of Pandora a couple months later.

** Pandora at Animal Kingdom is yet another example. Some say it doesn't belong at the park, especially since Avatar is not a Disney movie. Many of them still want to see Beastly Kingdom appear in some form. Others, however, say that it fits with the park's major theme of conservation and that it will be a welcome addition to the park.

** Even though it was never built, the concept of Animal Kingdom's proposed land Beastly Kingdom has gained some popularity among fans, even with Pandora: The World of Avatar being built in the area where it was supposed to be.

** Mickey's Most Merriest Celebration, the new seasonal castle stage show that debuted during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2016, features a song about texting loved ones on Christmas, complete with the characters pulling out oversized prop cellphones. Thankfully the rest of the show isn't as bad, with appearances by characters like Clarabelle Cow, José Caricoa and Panchito singing popular Christmas songs.
