    Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Well, the top attractions at the parks was a good thread and all and there was some good discussions on rides that some love/hate and rides that used to be good and have declined. However, let's be more specific for fun. I know it is hard, but try to narrow it down to just 1 attraction out of all 4 parks that is your utmost favorite, and you wouldn't miss it if you went to Disney World. Yes, I am asking you to pick one total attraction that is the best at WDW, so you will have to compare attractions from different parks say Tower of Terror verses haunted Mansion verses Expedition Everest.

    I really don't have an opinion here :-P! At DL, I would probably say Pirates of the Caribbean. At WDW, I don't really remember liking one particular ride a ton more than the others. Maybe I would say, Space Mountain.

    O yes, you can defend your choice and why it is your favorite choice too.

    Also, pick the worst attraction in the parks in your opinion. You can defend that one too as I'm sure there will be some debate on it!

    Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Oh boy, that's really tough for me.

    We go often enough (four times a year or so) that I never feel "deprived" of my favorite attractions.

    It's easier for me to pick for Disneyland, which I almost never get to go to (Pirates, for it's incredible detail, nuances (blue bayou, fireflies, treasure, etc)

    hmm.... I could pick Everest, though it was so much better when the Yeti was working, and I can't say I never miss it, we pretty much always miss it because there really isn't anything else at that park that attracts us there...

    I think I'll go with Haunted Mansion. I'm rather proud of our HM refurb that was done a few years back... it maintains enough of the nostalgic original and yet is polished enough to feel fresh and new and eternally "cool" It's one ride I think is actually better in Orlando, I'm always sure to ride, I love it every time, and I never get tired of it.

    So yeah, Haunted Mansion


    Can I pick a least favorite too? Stitch's Great Escape.
    Worst. Attraction. Ever.

    Yes, if you only follow one piece of advice from these forums, make it this: Don't go on Stitch! It's truly excruciating and bad. Sometimes we go by on the People Mover and I want to yell down to people waiting in line: "SUCKERS!!!!" or "Save yourselves while you still can!!!"

    Cool Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Splash, Mission Space, Dinosaur, Tower. Subject to change in the next few days; last visit was 2005.

    I think that Sounds Dangerous is without question the worst attraction I've experienced at WDW.
    I'll add Tiki Room and Cap'n EO to that. Haven't seen enough of AK to really dislike anything, although Ches-n-Hes is unfortunate compared to the rest of the park
    A bientot.

    Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Magic Kingdom
    Favorite: Probably sounds crazy, but...TTA! Only because I miss having a Peoplemover type attraction at DL, so riding one at WDW makes me feel happy.
    Least favorite: Tiki Room Under New Management. NEVER AGAIN.

    EPCOT
    Favorite: Spaceship Earth
    Least Favorite: Journey Into Imagination. Unfortunately I never got a chance to experience the original version, just the current one. I've seen ride thru videos of the old JIA and I can't for the life of me comprehend why they completely destroyed what appeared to be a wonderful ride.

    Hollywood Studios
    Favorite: The Great Movie Ride. Definitely needs updating, but still enjoyable.
    Least Favorite: Lights, Motors, Action! Okay, as if the Backlot Tour hasn't been slashed to bits enough over the years, the addition of this show made it worse! Now it feels like all you do on the tram is drive around the giant LMA! stadium. This show is also responsible for the removal of my beloved Golden Girls house.

    Animal Kingdom
    Favorite: Expedition Everest
    Least Favorite: All the Chester and Hester crap.

    Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Favorites are Haunted Mansion, Grand Fiesta Tour, It's a Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean. In that order. Least favorite is Stitch's Great Escape. (I can stand Tiki Room and Laugh Floor. Imagination, barely.)
    -Hale (wumbology)

    a.k.a. h2mc, omnimover.mousetalgia, omnimover, wumbology, hogbackmtn, hhmcsharry, Hale M., h2m, h2mc

    (I've never visited Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Resort Paris, nor Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, so don't be fooled when I pretend to know what I'm talking about. [But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])

    Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    My choices are somewhat biased because a lot of the rides that are at both DL and WDW are not that special to me at WDW.

    Magic Kingdom FAVORITE: Philharmagic
    Magic Kingdom WORST: Stitch

    Hollywood Studios FAVORITE: Lights Motors Action
    Hollywood Studios WORST: Sounds Dangerous

    Epcot FAVORITE: Innoventions (kinda cheating since there's so much stuff there)
    Epcot WORST: World Showcase in the Summer (so brutal walking around there we just skip it now)

    Animal Kingdom FAVORITE: Nemo Musical
    Animal Kingdom WORST: Would probably be Primeval Whirl if I ever rode it. But since I haven't I'll say Dinosaur because it is terrible compared to Indy.

    OVERALL FAVORITE: Finding Nemo Musical
    OVERALL WORST: Stitch

    Re: Your Favorite Attraction at All the Parks

    Unfortunately, this thread has just been a reduced list version of my other thread "Favorite attractions at the park - (top 5)" I was hoping here for something different and forcing you to choose between your top attraction between all the parks and pick a favorite. Some people did that O well! haha. Thank you for the responses anyhow.

    For those of you who like California Screamin' at DCA, you should go to Cedar Point and ride some real roller coasters. To me Screamin' is just a below mediocre roller coaster with some slight theming. I guess you have Knott's Berry in CA with a couple good coasters but not Cedar's Millenium Force though 310 foot high that will make California Screamin' into a soft whimper which is barely over 100 ft. Top speed California' 59 mph / Max speed on the millenium 93 Mph. Also, even though Screamin' is a rather long ride 2 min 36 sec, the millenium is equal to it 2 min 20 sec.
    If you like the launching to top speeds that screamin/rockin' does using a linear motor, then ride the maverick, which has two launches up to 70 MPH or the top thrill dragster which launches you over 120 mph.

    California screamin' to me feels slow, cheesey with that music, and not near as smoothe as many of the coasters I've been on twice its size which are in no particular order in case you want to ride a "good coaster":
    Kennywood Park Pittsburgh - Revenge of the Phantom, Busch Gardens Williamsburg - Griffin' / Apollo's Charriot, King's Island Mason Ohio - the Diamondback, Cedar Point - Maverick (not really twice the size but a far superior ride)/Millenium Force/Magnum XL-200

    Of course these aren't all the coasters I've been on, these are just the ones that in my opinion are far better than the California Screamin' and you'd probably like if you like california screamin'. I haven't been to Knott's or Six Flags. I've also been to Hershey in PA which has some good coasters, but none I'd put on this list other than the Faranheight which I have yet to ride. If you want a coaster like the california screamin' I could list one in every major coaster park in the US that is its equal, some with better theming. This is not a Disney quality ride. Knott's comparatively has the Xcelerator far taller and faster 205 ft. I'm sure Six Flags has some equally massive thrill rides.

    I know some of you are thinking but Screamin' is supposed to portray an old boardwalk coaster made out of wood so it shouldn't be some huge / speed ride. Well I've road plenty of wooden coasters before as well, and Screamin is not a wooden coaster. It is no better a pretend wooden coaster than it is a steel coaster. Ride Ghostrider at Knott's if you want a good wooden coaster. (of course i never ridden it. It is just famous!)
    Some good wooden coasters that I'd suggest on the east coast:
    Kennywood Park - Jack Rabbit/Thunderbolt. King's Island - The Beast, Cedar Point - Gemini, Hershey Park, PA - The Comet, Coney Island, Brooklyn - The Cyclone. You get the picture.

    I know I'm in the VAST minority, but I actually like Sounds Dangerous. One of those guilty pleasures. I think it's better than the current tram tour at any rate...
