Oh how I wish I could see the DisneyLand versions of my favorites. Lucky looks fantastic.
But I did vote for Pirates. It's got everything I love. It's a dark ride with a few actual thrills like the little dip. It's enough for the very young and old to enjoy. The themeing is excellent and the animatronics...well, I adore them. Can't get enough. There's even a story.
I also had a hard time deciding between that and Haunted Mansion. Again for the same reasons.
Spaceship Earth I do like the way it is. Please don't gut it and put in a high speed coaster. Yuck.
I really miss Horizons and World of Motion. Animatronic and special effects and a nice cool easy ride. I can do these again and again.
Coasters are okay, but I don't think they are true Imagineering fare.
If you're speeding past things you really can't appreciate them as much. But I do love Thinder Mt.

Well, I voted for Soarin' over California because I love that it includes so many sensory elements to experience the attraction...the lift into mid-air (and understand, I'm afraid of heights!), the full, wrap-around screen, the scents, the wind in your hair...brings to life the experience of hang gliding, and certainly I will get no closer to actually hang gliding than that.   I am looking forward to "Soarin'" placed in Epcot with a USA themed film so that I can "fly" over more than my home state.

That being said, I now sorely wish I had thought to vote for Spaceship Earth.  Why?  Because it embodies educational entertainment in a thoroughly unique and enjoyable manner.  I would love to see the same designers who made SE create an attraction based on and true to the featurette "Donald in Mathemagicland".

Peggo --

I don't think you'll have to worry about Spaceship Earth turning into a coaster-type attraction. I recall reading somewhere that engineers figured out that the steel structure (both track and sphere, I guess) would not be able to withstand the forces generated by a high speed ride.

Yes, Bill, I read that too, and I'm so relieved. But they thought of doing that! Ack! Eisner seems to be coaster crazy, and he really hasn't let go of the controls yet.

I'm almost in shock here.  I'm someone who'd like to see Disneyland turn into a part Thrill Park as well.   I was thinking up a 'super' DL, and I end up splicing Space Mountain with Rock'n'Rollercoaster, replacing Autopia with Test Track, recreate more classic attractions (read:  Turn 'Peter Pan's Flight' into an inverted or flying coaster) add a Tower of Terror in the Haunted Mansion, make Pirates of the Carribian with part of the new Mummy Ride, give Splash Mountain a Tidal Wave of a finale, and other naughty naughty ideas.


Part of me is glad I don't work for Disney.  I'd be having fans clamor for my exceedingly gruesome death.

There's just something about the Haunted Mansion that appeals to the "liitle girl" in me...that voice in the intro is so perfect....the effects are so clever and unique...I wish it hadn't been "toned down" ( I read that somewhere), but I still get a kick out of seeing who joins us in the carriage as we are leaving!  I enjoy the walk to the carriages, seeing the cobwebs, etc.  There is so much attention to detail to appreciate on this ride.  I especially like visiting the mansion at night...it looks terrific from the outside then!

Still remembering my June 7, 2004 Port Orleans French Quarter vacation...
In 2010 I converted a bedroom into a Disney Princess Room! Everyone who sees it feels the magic and says they just have to smile when they are in it!  


When I'm at WDW I'm 8 years old again!

Since the question is which attraction best represents WDI and not which attraction is my own personal fav, I had to pick 'It's A Small World'.  The reason I chose this attraction (even though it drives me completely insane :-D ) is because WDI is about the world and all it's various cultures and appealing to the one common element that is in all of them....making dreams come true. Small World represents the various cultures with it's dolls that represent each country, and the animatronics represent the (Disney) magic that is part of making people's dreams come true (in the form of entertainment etc etc).  

Not too mention that song is a song that literally everyone knows, whether they've been to the parks or not. That attraction really has reached out from beyond the parks (and the World's Fair) to touch people and that's what Disney is all about. :)

Thanks.  I blame it on that song.  I think it brain-washed me.  Hahahahahha :p
