He he he - I'm pathetic, but I love Space Ship Earth at Epcot. It's kind of neat... and if you don't think it's neat, then just think of it as a ride you can actually nap on.
I love Spaceship Earth! Have no shame! Besides, have you ever riden it while facing backwards? Try it sometime, you will see all types of neat stuff.
Just a secret BTW, after coming up the hill at the start, just before you get to the cave man scene, look over the front of your car. Normally, you can look right down through a trap door into a maintence area. I know it is funny, but I have caught 2 janitors sleeping, and 3 eating lunch.
This is hard... it's like entering a room with 50 puppies and being asked to pick out the best one!!
I've always pointed to the Haunted Mansion as my favorite, and I think I'm going to stick with that. It's got some of the best special effects in the whole park, while using technology decades old. And it's something that came right out of Walt's imagination. I'll never forget the first time I saw those ghosts dancing in the ballroom... pure magic! And even after being long spoiled of the secrets, it's still pure magic every time.
I could list my runner ups... but that'd be a list of pretty much every attraction there is... LoL.
MK-This is hard, as a family we had a blast on Buzz but I think I enjoyed my beloved People Mover best!!
MGM-RnRc-part of this is the fun I had riding with my son
And Sorry Firemouse but I have to disagree with you! I like DL's version of Space Mountain soooo much better!! I found WDW's rockets to be uncomfortable, and the was way too much light. Part of the experience is not to see the track and to be in the dark. WDW's version did have that same effect. My son felt the same way.
They are DLM. Especially for a BIG guy like me, and I am so tall that my legs won't fit anywhere in the car except for the front, and I have to shove the bar down for it to click!!! It just drives me insane!!!!!!
I know what you mean. I am large guy, 6'3", and if I sit in the front, i usually hold on the the handle for dear life. And, on one corner, i really banged my shin on the front of the car. I should have sued for a few million.
Anyways, I dont really have a favorite ride, I like them all however my favorite 2 are the Tower of Terror (beacuse I like the drops) and Mickeys Philarmagic (because of all of the characters).
You know, I was thinking, and if I took away the "nostalgia factor" of the HM, my favorite attraction would have to be Philharmagic. The whole thing is just really awesome and gives me chills! But I really do feel that strong nostalgic pull towards HM that keeps it at the top for me!
I bet if I visited park for the first time ever today, my favorite would be Philharmagic.
Well this is a poser, and no mistake. I'm going to break with the crowd on this one. For non-scary ride type attractions, I still have a big soft spot for MuppetVision. Not only is it one of the last, if not the last performances of Jim Henson as Kermit, I just still get a big kick out of it. But the expereince of the ToT is just amazing. If only I can convince the LAT deb to ride it with me.
...I love HM - it's my favourite in ALL the parks, but I was really thrilled when we were chosen as WDI Official Ride Raters for the Rockin' Roller Coaster.
(I have a scan of the plastic ID tags we recieved around here somewhere.)

My favorite ride at WDW is by far Spaceship Earth! I can't even explain it, but the feeling I get when I ride it is amazing. I seem to loose sense of the world and just enjoy what's happening. I forget about people and problems and take in the AMAZING soundtrack and great animatronics!
Arrrrghhh, now I have to watch an on-ride video of it after writing this
