This is something that may be very petty, but it has always made me cringe when I read it. I see posters refer to the attractions at Disney Parks as "rides" all the time. I always use the word "attraction". It is what Walt called his adventures. He never used the word ride as it was used for all common carnivals and amusement Parks and it is this reason that they were called "attractions" at Disney Parks. I am curious if this bugs anyone else or is it just a question of semantics? Ride or Attraction? Which do you use and does it matter? To me it does. Ride sounds so "carnival" to me and Disney Parks are anything but...well except for maybe Paradise Pier! I will never use anything but the term attraction for the adventures at the Parks.
