    Splash for me.

    Sadly enough, still not been on Indy, ever. and I live in S Cali. Every time I go to DL, seems I am taking nieces, nephews, or my little one, all too small to go on Indy. Next visit, will go for sure though. Will have to be alone (need someone to watch the little ones) but should be a great ride!!!

    Wow... that's hard.

    I'm going with Haunted Mansion, Country Bear Jamboree, America Sings, and Splash Mountain.

    Tons of other attractions are wonderful, but the ones I listed above are purely timeless.

    I'd have to say that at least 90% of those people realize that technology has progressed wayyyy beyond what even Walt dreamed of!

    That having been said, I vote for Splash Mountain , and Tower of Terror (but the MK version over DCA, the move into the drop shaft was almost scarier than the drop itself!)

    Thumbs up Best Ride since Walt?

    Splash Mountain - the best blend of Theming to thrill rides.

    Indy is fabulous too and immersive but just based on the "What are you going to do first factor" Splash Mountain wins in a close ace.

    Indy will always win for the best queue ever - WOW is that Queue cool.

    As I am writting this I changed my mind from Soarin to ToT. Soarin is a great concept but not very immersive like HM or POTC, hence the change. DL is not as good as the one in WDW. However I still ride it every time I am at DCA! Once every two weeks, plus I ride it more then once. Nothing beats the ToT in the evening!

    I have to say that despite recent lacking interest in the ride, Star Tours proved for a very long time to be the force to beat. Remember when it first opened the first 10 years it always had the longest lines, because it tied into one of the most imaginative non Disney properties out there and thrilled audiences who got a closer look.

    In that same vain Indy was the evolution of that and made perfect sense, hence such the popularity for it. I have reservations for nominating ToT only because its not in the park, was cloned (and not well I might add) and is a simple ride with complecated theming. Haunted Mansion is also an excellent choice but by far the best argument here is still Splash Mtn- which isn't even my favorite ride, but is still a marvel.

    PumpkinKing - did you ever ride Epcot's "Horizons?" The inspiration for Soarin' (the Omnisphere theater) was a small component of the attraction, which was reminscent of Pirates and HM in its use of detailed sets and Animatronics figures.

    Speaking of Epcot, I'll have to add Journey into Imagination and American Adventure to my list.

    Indy...Indy...and more Indy.

    Three words: Best. Ride. Ever.
    Trivia: On April Fool's Day 2004, Disneyland guests found -- at the insistence of the board of directors -- the gigantic dragon featured in Fantasmic replaced with a gigantic Roy Disney (leading to a reprimand to the cast member playing Mickey Mouse when he hugged the giant instead of fighting it)
