    Which AA attraction in classic EPCOT was best?

    Recently, with the Enxtint Attraction Club CDs I recently bought, and the videos I have been watching, I have been thinking and missing Horizons and World of Motion a lot. And it got me to thinking, with three very similar attractions, (World of Motion, Horizons, and Spaceship Earth) which of the three did you enjoy the most?
    I would have to say I loved World of Motion best. Though I LOVE all three, and am glad we at least have Spaceship Earth still, which seems to be getting some TLC, and Horizons was a nice sequel of sorts to another classic attraction, the Carousel of Progress, World of Motion had the humor to it that made the ride so quirky and tongue in cheek. Just the unbridled optimism made it such a joy.

    I did not include Journey Into Imagination in the poll because I feel it is a different experience that the other three. It is AA-laden, but a different kind of attraction that is more fanciful than the other three.
    It's a Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah...Tip for Today!

    Riding in "the big golf ball" is the on ly one I remember from when I was a kid, so I said that
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I would have to say WOM, which I have to say was better done and executed over Spaceship Earth, which to this day remains a gimmicky ride with very little heart.

    World of Motion got my vote, I liked it the best out of all of the rides at Epcot from the old days. Gary Owens narrating it always made it stand out more for me. It was so cool basically having Space Ghost (and later on in my life Powdered Toast Man) narrating that ride. The huge space station model in there was so cool, I loved it when the ride would stop for whatever reason and I was in there . The humor of the ride was very well done as were the scenes.

    I vaugely even remember WoM from my childhood but SSE and Horizons stand out the most from my memories with Horizons taking the cake.

    The smell of oranges and the ability to chose your own ending make Horizons stand out in my mind. WoM comes in at a VERY close second though.

    Horizons will always be one of my favorites. Kelp, Seaweed, Kelp...best part of the attraction. My friend and I still recite that.

    I think Horizons has such a wonderful optimistic view of the future from so many different points of view. That, combined with the looking back at the past segments early on really made a terrific story. I almost cried when they took it out.
