    Best AAs?

    OK, as the title indicates, I would like to hear people's opinion's about their favorite Audio Animatronics in WDW. Which ones thrill, excite and amaze you the most?

    Personally, the greatest AAs I've ever seen are in Dinosaur, at Animal Kingdom. It was as if real, breathing dinosaurs had come to life before my astonished eyes. I couldn't believe how lifelike, scary and impressive they looked. For someone who's always loved dinosaurs, those AAs were stunning.

    So, what's your favorite?

    Oh man, i'm going to get killed for this one, but Stitch is pretty darn good, as far as AAs go. But I'm also a huge fan of Will Rogers and Ben Franklin over in the American Adventure.

    I have to say I like the Buzz Lightyear in BLSRS, with the added "eye" effect it makes it really cool to watch.

    Lincoln is probably my favorite "old school" AA, I remember the first time I saw him stand up as a kid it freaked me out, in a good way.

    Re: Best AAs?

    I agree about Stitch. I absolutely hate the show, but the AA is very well done.

    I'm also going to mention the Greek Teacher in SE, Mr. Potato Head at TSMM, and the Wicked Witch in the GMR. I love all three of them.

    Never seen the Stitch show in person, but from the videos I've seen, the AA is very impressive. Very fluid/realistic motion.

    The Jack Sparrows in POTC are quite nice too (and nice to look at).

    The Witch of the West in the Great Movie Ride is quite impressive as well.

    And I love the hopping Brer Rabbit in Splash Mountain... when he's working.

    Funny....every time I've ben to Splash this year (about a dozen times) the awesome Hopping Brer Rabbit works, but The Yeti's been down for like 5 months now and I've never seen him (of course, techincally not an AA, the angler fish has been down for at least 2 months now too)

    Forgot Mr. Potato Head....he's great.

    Re: Best AAs?

    Thanks for the responses so far.

    Since we're mentioning second favorites...after the dinosaurs, I love the yeti-- in "A" mode. Unfortunately, he hasn't been in A mode for months.

    I also love the Clint Eastwood AA from TGMR. Excellent likeness.

    Re: Best AAs?

    Have some WDW AAs been let to fall into disrepair? I though that this year the Wicked Witch wasn't nearly as cool as I remember compared to other A-100s, and the auctioneer was just sad. (Maybe because I've recently seen the DL pirates also)

    Re: Best AAs?

    The best done AA's in my opinion are:

    The Wicked Witch in the Great Movie Ride
    Stitch in SGE (Its a shame its utilized on such an awful attraction)
    Captain Jack in Pirates of the Carribean
    and out of nostalgia, the dog in Carousel of Progress

    and the weby award for best AA goes to Captain Jack.

    He was the pre-show for Alien Encounter. He's still there for the Stich pre-show, but dressed up differently. Killer AA, but I just hate now what Disney did to such a stellar show
