    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    Thanks for the link! It's interesting to see the list develop. While I haven't experienced every attraction on here and may not agree, it's always good to see other people's reactions. I also find it interesting that Disney is represented by older and newer attractions.

    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    Now I prefer Festival of the Lion King over Nemo but mainly because I like the music better. It's all about personal choices I suppose.

    My Top 10: (In no particular order)

    1. Wild Arctic Sea World
    2. The Simpsons Universal Studios
    3. Mickey's Philharmagic Magic Kingdom
    4. Spaceship Earth Epcot
    5. Expedition Everest Animal Kingdom
    6. Toy Story Midway Mania Hollywood Studios
    7. Haunted Mansion Magic Kingdom
    8. Rhino Rally Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
    9. Sky Tower Sea World
    10. Hollywood Tower of Terror Hollywood Studios

    I included Busch Gardens because Rhino Rally is probably the coolest safari ride I've ever been on. IMHO

    Absolutely... that's the flaw with Nemo... Music is all original, and not easily accessible (AFAIK) outside the park. Whereas the Lion King are already classics in their own right. It helps obviously, having one of the top songwriting teams of the last 30 years on the job!
    Nemo may catch on...but it's a long way behind.

    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    Actually, I don't like the FOTLK at all. I think it's silly and boring. I also think the music to the Lion King in general isn't very good, but again it's all about perception.

    I usually don't voice my opinion around here because usually it's the opposite of everyone else, but just wanted to voice my .02 FWIW.

    My top 10 would probably be (in no order):
    Men in Black
    Simpsons
    Tower of Terror
    Splash Mountain
    Toy Story Midway Mania
    Haunted Mansion
    Expedition Everest
    Muppetvision
    Philharmagic
    Living with the Land

    Of course, there are so many that I could add, but I think those are my favorites. And it changes daily too.

    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    I disagree on the music, but some of the production is a bit wishy washy for me also ... I love the tumbling monkeys though.

    I think you're spot on in respect of the list changing regularly. Though I have Tower of Terror firmly sat at the top !
    I'm liking your Living with the land choice - was shut on my last visit :-(

    I'm surprised at the difference between Dueling dragons and Hulk, though it's been 4yrs since I went on them, but don't remember that much to choose.
    Smile, you never know who's looking !

    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    I'm surprised Expedition Everest wasn't included.

    In my opinion, Nemo the Musical isn't that great a show. I felt it was just a 40-minute version of a 100-minute movie. It seemed rushed. The writing and acting was also very corny to me.

    I like Festival of the Lion King because it is inspired by the movie, but doesn't mirror it completely. The monkey scene is just a bit silly for my taste, but everything else is pretty dang impressive.

    Re: Orlando Sentinel Top 50

    Look again; Everest is on the list.

    I would definitely include Dinosaur, Spectromagic, Country Bears, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh and T2:3D on the list. Those are all better than Nemo and Beauty, in my opinion, although I do like the Nemo show. And how about Indiana Jones? That's one of the best shows at WDW.

    Nemo loses because they have people holding up fish, and they don't try to disguise that fact. I never understood the appeal of that

    Better than people dressing up as fish.
