    I can't choose just one. Anything with amazing AAs.

    Tiki Room, since it was the first.
    PotC, because it was the best.
    Jungle Cruise, because the spiels are awesome.

    Uh, you forgot to put Tom Sawyer's Island on the list!! I mean it's the only attraction personally designed by Walt himself after all. Anyway, that gets my vote.

    Haunted Mansion is my favorite older attraction...and I guess we can give Walt credit for the facade but of the attractions he actually saw through to completion, it's gotta be Pirates

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure HM opened not long after he died. Pretty sure he knew what it was going to look like, even if he never got a chance to ride it.

    For me, the Disneyland Railroad (then, Santa Fe & Disneyland RR), arguably one of Walt's favorite--if not THE favorite (trains did play a vital role as inspiration in the very concept of the park).

    HM opened in August of 1969, and Walt died in late 1966. He had a hand in it, but the finished product was somewhat different from what he had described earlier as "a museum of the weird".

    My favorite was the Mine Train (of course). A train-based attraction, it was said this was one of his favorites. And it had that huge desert to circle through! At the time, Nature's Wonderland had more animatronics than any other single attraction had. It was quite a trip.

    Matterhorn. Two bobsled tracks in the alps. I love the thrill of seeing a bobsled right next to you, then having it disappear as it ducks under your track.

    Does anybody know if the attractions made for the 1967 new tomorrowland besides Carousel of Progress were created or made a concept by Walt Disney himself?
