Rides/attractions that you just don't "get"

As the title suggests, what are the rides and attractions that you've experienced at DL/CA that you just don't see what the big fuss is all about? Or, also, the ones that are mentioned frequently as being bad, but you just had to experience it for yourself once, anyway, and then realized everyone was right? lol

Mine probably falls more into the latter category, but I just HAD to see. Roger Rabbit. The line is dreary and mostly uninteresting as well, in my opinion. Honestly, I think they could have done something different and more interesting with the Roger Rabbit concept.

My husband would probably list all of the Fantasyland dark rides if I were to ask him this question, lol. I made him ride ALL of them last time we visited.

I actually loved Peter Pan! The room with all the stars over Neverland is what got me.

We love it too! And coming around the corner into the stars, and then sliding down...amazing!

For Nemo. I can not see why people would wait more than 5 minutes for this. It was cool but hot and cramped the one time I went on it. We went right at rope drop, got straight on and when we got off the ride it jumped to a 45 minute wait. Wow!

I haven't done the subs yet because of the wait time and I just can't see going there as soon as I get in the park because of their bad reputation!

I agree. This is a ride I won't wait for so we have skipped it the last couple of trips.

Not that I don't get it but I wish they would change the Snow White ride. It's got to be the worst ride in FL.

The Snow White ride was one of the original rides. But, it was closed last year to make room for a princess M&G.

Roger Rabbit - none of us got it - but then we haven't seen the movie either.

Peter Pan & WOC - DH's vote only (myself and DD love)

EO - my vote only (DH & DD love)

It hasn't closed at Disneyland. Our FL(Fantasy Land) still has a Snow White.

So surprised by some of these responses! Peter Pan is a favorite must do. So clever for its time and nostalgic for me as my Dad and I always had a ship while my Mom and brother always had a ship. First trip in 1963 and still remember that magic. Now, things I can do without. Autopia! yuck. MuppetVision! Innoventions!I don't do the mountains but get why folks like them. Disney needs to redo Swiss Family Robinson as a movie so they can make the treehouse cool again. Bugsland, I get that they need for a kid section but come one..the rides are pretty lame and in no way compare to the DL version of kids rides in Fantasyland. IMO the DCA redo has just begun.

my kids love this ride...I am ok with it. I enjoyed the first couple times, now its a great ride to take a few minutes to just rest my eyes(I always fall asleep) and feet. Though I have never been in the summer...so there wasn't too much extra body "perfume" in the cramped space.
