    DLR's Awesomest Rides: Round 3. Pirates of the Caribbean VS. Splash Mountain
    __________________________________________________ ______________

    Now for this weeks battle!!!

    Last week it was a battle of the DLR's most amazing "Story told/Water rides" and this time we are going to stay in water but enter the world of Fantasy! This week we are going to debate over which Fantasyland boat ride is the most awesome. Let's meet our two warriors!!!

    First off we have one of the most memorable rides in Disneyland. Not only memorable through the attraction's experience but mostly memorable due to the song. While this ride may be a favorite or a least favorite to some, it is defiantly one of the key attractions at Disneyland due to it's exciting adventure of journeying through the world that is united by little doll audio-animatronic figures.

    I give you...


    "it's a small world"

    Next we have one of the most original Disneyland attractions, which has always left a warm feeling in our hearts. This ride sits you on a motor driven boat in which a swallow from "Monstro" the whale sets you from reality, to Storybook Land. In story book land you will be toured of mini replicas of many Disney fantasy classics. It is a Fantasyland must for many.

    I give you...


    Storybook Land Canal Boats

    Small world. By miles. Just standing in the queue reminds you you're at Disneyland.

    For some reason it literally took me seconds to click "Storybook" ride as my favorite. It's just something that makes the top of my list when traveling to Disneyland.

    Wish I had that ride in my backyard.

    I love them both, but since I have to choose then IASW is my choice. Both rides are wonderful to look at, and a lot of fun to ride. However, I always feel a whole lot safer on the Small World Boats then I do on Storybook Land. Also nothing beats the Holiday overlay on Small World.

    Storybook wins, I can't go anywhere near IASW, I might hear THAT MUSIC! and I'll have it stuck in my head all day.

    Both rides are very good, but "it's a small world" is a classic. People around the world can recognize its name and its infectious tune.

    I chose Storybookland because IASW gets annoying after awhile.

    I ended up going with Storybook because I love how when I am on that ride, I feel that I am in Fantasyland the most.

    Re: DLR's Awesomest Rides: Round 4. "it's a small world" VS. Storybook Land Canal Boa

    My vote is an objective one: IASW. Walt built the ride for the '64 World's Fair and then shipped it home to California. Annoying, tedious, and most recently ground zero for a synergy/merchandising H-Bomb, one cannot deny it's importance in the universe of theme parks. We might not have had POTC the way we know it today had IASW never been built.

    Now, I love Small World, I've written a "Concerto in Miniature" for you to enjoy on your next cruise (free downloads available on my facebook page, friend me my name is Mission Seagull). And for a ride that was just once a voyage through Walt's own hand selected Weed's of the world it cannot be overlooked at how potent those fanciful miniatures are to young and old. Plus, you'll never get a chance to ride IASW with a character like Alice or the Mad Hatter sitting next to you making trite observations along the way.

    Sorry Storybook Land Canal Boats, it might not have been my heart voting.

    Re: DLR's Awesomest Rides: Round 4. "it's a small world" VS. Storybook Land Canal Boa

    My vote went to Storybook Land. It just feels so much more quaint, and intimate. Cozy almost. I love it's a small world too, but not as much as Storybook Land.

    And how cool is the view of the Matterhorn over Pinocchio's Village?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    You must be an optometrist. Because to me your polls of the past have had pretty clear-cut choices. But in this case I'm going to have to go with "about the same".

    Sure, Small World is much more grander, but Storybookland has a charm that is at least equal to that of Small World.

    Each ride is very different yet in a way they are both very similar.
