    Top ten lists

    OK, folks, the purpose of this thread is to give you a chance to come up with your own personal "top ten list". Make a list of your ten all-time favorite Disney attractions (including rides, shows, 3D/4D movies, etc.) at any Disney park worldwide. They can be in order of preference, in reverse order, or in no particular order at all. If you mention an attraction that is duplicated in other Disney parks, please mention which version made your list (eg, WDW's or DLR's).

    If you haven't been to every Disney park in the world, no big deal (I think most of us haven't) these are your own personal favorites. Also, if one of your favorite attractions happens to be one that doesn't exist anymore, mention that too. You can state the reasons for your preference if you like, or simply post the list. Actually, there are no real "rules", I'm just throwing ideas out there.

    To get things rolling, here is my own personal top ten, in order of preference:

    1. The Haunted Mansion at WDW's MK (after refurbishment).
    2. Indiana Jones Adventure at DL.
    3. Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney Hollywood.
    4. Pirates of the Carribean at DL (old version, before Jack Sparrow took over).
    5. Space Mountain at DL (old version).
    6. Expedition Everest at WDW's Animal Kingdom.
    7. Mission: Space at Epcot.
    8. Dinosaur at AK.
    9. Star Tours at DL or Disney Hollywood (same ride at both).
    10. Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at DL.

    Thanks for your lists, guys. Some of your picks almost made my list but just got edged out. Kilimanjaro Safaris and Mickey's PhilharMagic would definitely be in my top 15...

    Re: Top ten lists

    1- Journey to the Center of the Earth
    2- Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull (TDS)
    3- Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye (DL)
    4- Space Mountain (DL)
    5- Big Thunder Mountain (TDL)
    6- Pirates of the Caribbean (DL)
    7- Tower of Terror (DL)
    8- Tower of Terror (TDL) (Before you all ask why??, TDL is superior theming and story wise, but the drop sequence is sooo weak... DL inches forward cause of that)
    9- Splash Mountain (DL)
    10- Haunted Mansion (DL)

    Honorable mentions to Space Mountain at WDW for the extraordinary waiting line, Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune for its amazing music and story, Big Thunder Mountain at DLP for its very long ride and last tunnel.

    Re: Top ten lists

    1. POTC DL
    2. Expedition Everest
    3. Indiana Jones
    4. HM (DL or WDW) very close
    5. Splash (WDW)
    6. Tower of Terror (DL or WDW) again both very close
    7. Soarin' (DL of WDW)
    8. Kilimanjaro Safaris
    9. One Man's Dream (DHS)
    10. Alice in Wonderland

    Tough call. I hate leaving a few off the list but I guess that's why they call it a top 10 and not a top 11.

    Re: Top ten lists

    Thanks to all those who contributed a list so far. Barbarann had two parades on her list (post #12) and I would agree that parades count as legitimate Disney attractions.

    Although a lot of the big e-ticket attractions show up on numerous lists, there is still quite a lot of variety in people's favorites. I think it shows that nearly all attractions have their fans, and that the parks, for all their faults, still offer a great deal to please all tastes.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more lists.
