    Cory has a plan to show Topanga how he really feels about her. After she wins a trip to Disney World, along with a couple other students, he follows her, as does Shawn, and Cory plots to make her realize his feelings for her. At first, Topanga thinks Cory followed another girl to Disney World and not Topanga, but at the end, she realizes he really does care for her and they reunite. Back at home, Cory is grounded for sneaking off to Disney World.



    A good episode with a very interesting plot and some great, humorous lines. Grade- A+moreless
  • A great final to the story arc that began in "The grass is always greener" (#12). Cory follows Topanga to Disney World to tell her his feelings, and the two finally got back together.moreless

    One of my favourites, if not my favourite, episode in the series. In the magical place of Disney World, Cory and Topanga got back together with a romantic kiss at night in a very romantic place.

    The chapter has everything I like in this show: funny moments (Eric covering for Cory with a doll, Cory chasing Topanga (God, she was so pretty!) and taking roles every place she go), but, over all, it has the romanticism, the idea of true love, Cory's faith in it, and a perfect kiss at a magical place.

    When I first saw this chapter I couldn't help but to think "I want that". I wanted to be with Topanga, to travel to a far magical place even when I couldn't and to win her love back, to finally kiss her on a beautiful night in the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Everything I say will not be enough to describe how this chapter makes me feel. It's incredible.

    And Cory and Topanga are back together, where they belong.moreless
  • Cory & Topanga get back together!

    This episode was absolutely amazing for me, finally Cory comes to his senses & chases after Topanga, that is so sweet of him to fly all the way to Florida just to see her. I really don't like Kristen though, she kept on bringing Topanga & Cory farther apart. Some memorable moments were in which when Cory & Shawn go down the log ride, Topanga yelling at Waterman about kissing her, then she sees Cory in the tank. Also when they kissed in the end, that was special, then the fountains went up. The dolphin was really cute also. Anyways the subplot with Eric covering for Cory, everyone must be stupid to think that doll was Cory. Oh well, it turned out great, the best part is when Morgan said that bad word! Perfect!moreless
  • Such a cute episode!

    Cory is missing Topanga especially when he kisses another girl and thinks it's still Topanga. So when she gets the offer to go to Disney World, along with a manwhore named Ronnie, Cory's jealous ways take over and he decided to chase her, so he and Shawn follow her there by riding in the back of some animal truck. How they went to Disney World for about two or three days unnoticed by the school is beyond me, but one of my favorite things about Boy Meets World is it's slight unrealistic ways. The one thing in the way, Kristin, the girl who Cory kissed at the beginning of the episode, thinks Cory went all the way to Florida for her, and Topanga thinks the same. So now Cory has to convince her he went there for her, AND win her back. Meanwhile, Eric uses a stuffed scarecrow-looking thing to make it look like Cory, but in the end he's caught, that's basically the only subplot.



    Back to Cory and Topanga, Topanga is tired of being hit on by the manwhore, and leaves him at the resturant they were eating at, while Cory is talking to a dolphin and tells her about Topanga, and of course in true television fashion, Topanga hears him and they talk and agree to give it another shot, and kiss by the fountain as all water shoots up. I normally find this kind've stuff corny, but it's Boy Meets World, and it's Cory and Topanga, so I can overlook it.



    Great episode. Highly recommended to anyone who hasn't seen it yet.moreless
  • When Topanga wins a trip to Disney World, Cory believes that she is going to get a boyfriend there, so he chases her until they finally get back together again.

    This is my favorite episode of the whole series. It's so cute, and I love the Dolphin part in it. It was so romantic when they kissed in the ending. And it was nice of Shawn to come with Cory to help him chase Topanga. I liked it when Cory was in that big shark tank, and didn't even know it was a shark tank. Although that girl who thought Cory was in love with her was annoying, but a bit of a clever touch to the episode. I always like the younger series better than the older ones. I think it got a little awk-"Weird" as Cory and Topanga got married. Oh well!

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Topanga: Cory, you could hire the blimp, fly over Florida, flashing my name in neon and it wouldn't mean a thing to me!
      Cory: Oh God, please don't look up.

    • Cory (talking to Amber the dolphin): So, Amber, you're separated from your mate, huh? I know how you feel. Not that Topanga's my mate or anything, I just believe she is. It's funny though. People tell you to get on with your life, go date, there's plenty of other fish in the sea. Like I need to tell you! See, we know that once we've met that special person, it's hard to live knowing they're out there, and they're the only one you care about. All those things I did, I wasn't trying to impress her, I just didn't know how to express my feelings. Well, at least I tried, ya know? And now, I'm talking to a fish. (tosses a fish to Amber) See ya Amber.

    • Topanga: Cory, you know what I see? You in robe, wearing slippers, smoking a pipe.
      Cory: Wha...?
      Topanga: Cory Matthews, you're a playboy!

    • Eric: Well then, Cor, I gotta say; go to Florida, immediately. Win back your woman.
      Cory: Just like that, go to Florida? That's insane! What about sunscreen?
      Eric: I have spoken. (falls back into bed)

    • Cory: I came here to woo her, and by gum, woo her I will.

    • Cory: Oh, you're not Topanga.
      Dana: What's a "topanga"?

  • NOTES (3)

    • Boy Meets World aired it's ABC-mandated "Disney episode", in a single 30-minute installment, as opposed to a 2-parter, such as those aired by shows like Full House and Step By Step.
      Also, Boy Meets World only brought three main cast members. This allowed for a small b-story.

    • Boy Meets World meets Step By Step when Cory runs into Dana Foster.

    • This episode was originally titled "Disneyland".

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Title: The Happiest Show on Earth

      Disney World is known as "The Happiest Place on Earth". Shawn even says this in the episode.
