So... it appears that we need some life here.

What can I ask to bring the board back from the dead...

What's your favorite attraction at any Disney Park? Top ten?
Favorite non-Disney park or ride?

Come on, I know you guys are out there!

Love "Drinking Around the World" at Epcot! After 11 years I have finally given up my Florida Resident Annual Pass as I am so disappointed with the lack of anything new (sorry - but new Fantasyland just doesn't cut it with me). Miss the old days when going to Pleasure Island ment dressing up, dancing at the clubs, enjoying the Adventurer's Club and Comedy Warehouse, and keeping entrance a "ticket only" experience so you don't have to worry about tripping over strollers. Only go to Universal now, but will rejoin Disney Family im sure in the next few years when I start to miss it!

Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. It is always the attraction that we go on before heading up to dinner. Unfortunately it will be out of service while we are there in October.

My top picks

Tower of Terror DHS

Space Mountain DL

Haunted Mansion MK

Mickey's Philharmagic MK

Expedition Everest AK

And one you might not believe:

Heimlich's Chew Chew Train DCA: We rode this last time we were there. It was pretty funny. Heimlich narrates the whole thing. The theming is charming. I won't miss it again!

EPCOT is our favorite park, and yep we still like Spaceship Earth.

We (well I ) do like Splash Mountain, and BTMRR too. Not a huge fan of MK though.

Kind of tired of Disney's cut backs and changes. We still have our APs but we don't go nearly as often as we used to (almost weekly).

Non-Disney? We really aren't park people, although we have done Universal and Sea World and Busch. Didn't like Busch at all. Universal, meh. Sea World is ok...

Favorite ride there. There are rides at Sea World?

Favorite Disney rides, in no special order:
Grizzly River Run - one of the things DCA did right
Expedition Everest
Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror (DHS)
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
Soarin' (Over California)
Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom
Haunted Mansion (WDW)
Splash Mountain (WDW)
Peter Pan's Flight
Storybookland Canal Boats - love the miniatures
Matterhorn Bobsleds
Space Mountain (edge to DL)

Sorry... Couldn't limit to 10!

favorite non-Disney:

That's tougher, and I haven't visited non-Disney parks very often lately. Here are some candidates:

Steel Eel (Sea World of Texas)
El Aseradero (world's first log flume ride -at Six Flags Over Texas)
ET the Extra Terrestrial
(I'm guessing that there are some others at Universal Studios that should be on this list, but I haven't been in over 10 years)

Ultra-Twister (Astroworld)
Back To The Future
But these last two are long-gone

I've been to Cedar Point 1.5 times.

The first time was a miserable day.

The second time I didn't make it since our bus went off the road into the ditch near Oregon (is that right?). I ended up spending my day as the signing authority and pseudo-parent for 14 hospitalized kids aged 10-16.

I really don't think I want to try again. But, if we're ever in the area at the same time you can try to change my mind.

It's what I get for putting too much faith in the Six Flags marketing machine!

El Aseradero is one of the few areas left there that has any remnents of the park's original charm.

I'm not a big fan of what Six Flags has become under years of corporate mismanagement. Maybe I'll get out to Cedar Point some day!

And I must admit that Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at IOA was awesome.
