    Mine is Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. The only one I've experienced on your list is Columbia. The others I never got a chance to see them, and I've never been to WDW.

    You have never seen Lincoln? Do you mean the original?

    From the Lagoon of Liquidspaceman...
    I'd have to say Carousel of Progress, because it showed the spark of Americana and how imagination, through the years has made us great! Happy 4th of July!
    ...Liquidspaceman, over and out!

    mine is for Great Moments, because it is the only one I have experienced and I love it.
    However, if I was older I would pick America Sings because it seems like just a fantastic show.

    America the Beautiful. I wish they would bring that one back. Just the music itself was awe-inspiring. Whenever I listen to it I can visualize the scenes.

    Is it okay if I say Mark Twain Riverboat? I have not been on any of those attractions listed above.

    I'd have to say Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln because that's the only attraction that I've experienced. My favorite patriotic thing at Disney has to be the Celebrate America fireworks though. I'm not sure if that counts as an attraction but it's my favorite!

    America Sings. Loved it, and it never bothered me that it was in Tomorrowland because it's an entire show performed by robots!

    I wasn't around for half of that stuff, but I liked the OLD Lincoln show with the headphones. Call me crazy.

    Howdy Pards,

    Well, for me it's Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Who would have ever thought that over a hundred years after his death Mr. Lincoln would be speaking to the hearts of Americans still? Walt, and his team, put heart and soul into this presentation and Royal Dano was exactly the right voice for our 16th President.

    At Walt Disney World it's a tie for me between The Hall of Presidents and The American Adventure. In the Hall of Presidents Mr. Lincoln delivers his Gettysburg Address, Mr. Washington speaks, and even our current President delivers a very special speech in his own voice!

    In the American Adventure Mark Twain and Benjamin Franklin take us on an adventure through time to experience our history, our heritage, our legacy. When Golden Dream starts to play...without fail...tears well up in my eyes.

    I guess, like Walt, my blood runs red, white, and blue...always has...always will.

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Wild Ol' Dan
    "I can see the cattle grazin' o'er the hills at early morn…
    I can see the campfires smokin’ at the breaking of the dawn,
    I can hear the bronco's neighin', I can hear the cowboys sing,
    I'd like to be in Texas for the Round-up in the Spring."

    Lincoln for sure but please don't forget about the daily flag retreat ceremony. Each day join 20 or 30 spectators for something that is uniquely Disneyland. The flag retreat was started by Walt and lives on in his memory. A walk over to Splash Mountain or Indiana Jones can wait the 10 or 15 minutes it takes to watch something quite touching and special.

    It's a hard choice, but I think I can narrow it down to America Sings. American Journeys is a close second.

    Of all time, I'd say American Adventure from Epcot.

    America Sings. I still remember when it was introduced for our country's bicentennial.

    I also liked the patriotic parade at that time.
