    Which FL dark rides are a must ride?

    Hey everyone. Although I have gone to DL many times in my life.. I never seemed to really get to see most of the park. Just last year I first rode all the mountains and indy! I used to be terrified of such rides and would only go on casey jr, small world, star tours, dumbo and some other various attractions.. I never ever have been on any dark ride in FL besides Peter Pan.. and I barely went on that last trip! I am trying to make sure that I ride all of the "better" attractions first.. and with my limited access to the park.. this might take me several years.. but.. In your opinion, which rides should I try to make it on next time? Which are the better dark rides? And.. Is nemo worthwhile? 'Cause I waited four hours to get on it once and still never did! (Haven't tried again since..)

    For me it's Alice in Wonderland. Everyone has a different opinion, but all 5 are worthy of riding if not for their greatness but for nostalgia alone.

    Here's my order:

    Alice
    Mr.Toad
    Peter Pan
    Pinocchio
    Snow White

    Nemo is worth it if you've never been on it and the lines are always under an hour now.

    Re: Which FL dark rides are a must ride?

    Well, I like all of them, because... I'm a dork like that But my order would be...
    Alice
    Peter Pan (Though if you've been on it before, and not the others, I suppose it can be at the bottom...)
    Pinocchio
    Snow White
    Mr. Toad.
    And yeah, Finding Nemo is pretty cool, and as for the lines... I just bring my NDS and a good game, and I can wait for quite some time. The lines have been dying down now, anyway, so go for it!

    Re: Which FL dark rides are a must ride?

    None of them are must-rides for me personally, but other people may feel very differently. They're just not really my thing. I've grown to appreciate them more and more, though...Snow White is Disneyland's original scary ride, Pinocchio is weird and eerie, Mr. Toad is claustrophobic in an exciting way, Peter Pan is configured uniquely and offers the most charming and pleasant experience, and Alice in Wonderland...well, it's been a long time since I rode that one.

    If I could choose one to ride right now, I'd probably either pick Alice (finally) or Snow White.

    The three best in Fantasyland are Peter Pan, Mr. Toad and Alice. I also like Snow White cuz its scarier than the Haunted Mansion!

    Kittiekyo, your original post is a little confusing. It sounds like you are asking about Florida's dark rides, but then you mention Nemo, which they don't have in Florida--well, at least not Nemo subs.

    Anyway, at Disneyland Park, when it comes to dark rides, nothing beats Peter Pan.

    I agree, some clarification please. We do have a dark ride Nemo at Epcot which what she may be referring to but then you talk about DL and put it in the DL section. As DL has some different dark rides from FL I'm a little confused which side of the country your referring to.

    But my picks, for both:

    DL:

    Alice
    Toad
    Pinocchio
    Peter Pan
    Pooh

    WDW:
    Peter Pan
    Snow White
    Pooh
    Nemo

    PETER PAN

    Even though it always has a long line

    If you had ridden the old subs then the nemo subs I think isn't as good as the old subs. If it's 30 minute wait then wait for it but don't wait an hour

    And if your clostrophobic don't go on it. We went on it and there was this clostrophobic lady next to us and when they closed the hatch she told the captatin she had to get out of there. She was on the opposite side of the exit too. It took another ten minutes to get the sub onto the ride

    If you're willing to stay late, the line for Nemo dwindles down to essentially nothing. I saw no one waiting last night around 11:00.

    I think the "FL" stands for FantasyLand, not Florida.

    My choice:

    Snow White
    Peter Pan
    Pinnochio
    Alice
    Mr. Toad

    Yes, I am talking about Disneyland.. I have no intention of finding anything out about WDW because I will most likely never get to see it..But anyhow! Are you able to hold your child on your lap in these rides?

    Kittiekyo, it depends on the age of the child, But if it's the cutie in your avatar, yes, you can hold your child on your lap.
