What's your favorite attraction at any Disney Park? Star Tours

Top ten? In no particular order:
TSMM
Star Tours
ToT
Splash Mountain
Aerosmith
EE
Peter Pan
Soarin
Haunted Mansion
CoP (cause everyone needs nap time at Disney!)




Favorite non-Disney park or ride?
Park: I like our local zoo. If you mean theme park, I guess it would be Busch Gardens.
Ride: The Mummy at Universal

One of my favorites, that I rarely see mentioned here is Dollywood!

I LOVE that park!

This video reminded me of why...she has a Bald Eagle sancturary there and "Challanger" is around only because of Dolly!

That is awesome... I've not been to DL since the early/mid 90s... we're planning to visit in February if all goes as planned!

Yeah I know I've not listed my favourites yet as it's hard to choose!

LOL. I was wondering if anyone would notice.

My top 10, in no particular order are:

Haunted Mansion
Expedition Everest
Soarin'
Tower of Terror
Carousel of Progress
Pirates
Winnie the Pooh
Splash Mountain
Mickey's Philharmagic
Muppetvision

I don't have a favorite non-Disney park really, though if I had to pick one it'd probably be Valleyfair (the fair in Cedarfair) because I worked there for a few years and was an AP holder for several. (and it's my home park)

My top ten attractions are:

1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
2. Haunted Mansion
3. Pirates of the Caribbean
4. Tower of Terror
5. Expedition Everest
6. The Great Movie Ride
7. Spaceship Earth
8. Kilimanjaro Safaris
9. Winnie the Pooh
10. Peter Pan

Favorite non Disney park? Not really sure on that one, only really ever been to Busch Gardens in Virginia, Universal Orlando, and Sea World in Orlando. If I had to pick one it would be Universal, but I only went before Potter, I am sure I would love it now since I love Harry!

As for Non Disney ride it would have to be Spider Man at Islands of Adventure.

Having to whittle my list down to ten is like trying to pick my favorite Disney Princess. Since Little Mermaid was my first favorite Disney movie, (and the first big movie when I was little) I usually just stick with Ariel and Ursula, but some days I change up...depending on my mood. Hmm..

1) Space Mountain
2) Buzz Lightyear
3) BTMRR
4) Pirates
5) Splash Mountain
6) Nemo
7) The Great Movie Ride
8) The Little Mermaid @ Hollywood Studios
9) Tower of Terror
10) Dinosaur (Only because it scared the tarnations out of me!!!!)


As far as my favorite ride that's NOT a Disney ride, I'd honestly have to say that any sort of Tilt-A-Whirl at any local carnival is always appreciated! Or the Viper at Six Flags over Georgia. Only because I rode it like seven times in one day!! In lieu of naming a non-Disney favorite park, I think that the Tennessee Aquarium is absolutely a must-see! Rock City and Ruby Falls are sort of tourist-trappy, at least to me.

Oooh, good thread!

My favorite Disney ride will always be Splash Mountain. I loved the Brer Rabbit books growing up and will never forget my first trip to Disney, finding out that the theme to the ride was Brer Rabbit! I still have my plush Brer Rabbit from 1993! After Splash, I love TSMM, RNR, ToT, and Space Mountain!

My favorite non-Disney ride would be Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure!

What's your favorite attraction at any Disney Park? Top ten?
Favorite non-Disney park or ride?
These favorite attractions are not in any particular order and I love them for different reasons
1. Haunted Mansion
2. Splash Mountain
3. WEDway People mover/Tomorrowland Transit Authority
4. Tower of Terror
5. Mission:Space
6. Universe of Energy
7. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
8. Fantasmic
9. Wishes
10. The attraction yet to be conceived

I love Islands of Adventure.

That's my list for today. Tomorrow it can be totally different. It's so hard to pick and choose when you love so many things.

10 favorite Disney attractions, in no particular order:

TTA (MK)
Carousel of Progress (MK)
Space Mountain (DL version)
California Screamin' (DCA)
Expedition Everest (AK)
Pirates of the Caribbean (MK)
Haunted Mansion (MK)
Spaceship Earth (Epcot)
American Adventure (Epcot)
Star Tours 2.0 (DHS)

Honorable mentions: Muppetvision 3D (DHS), Great Movie Ride (DHS). If Disney ever refurbs them, they'll probably make it back into my Top Ten. Also Ellen's Energy Adventure (Epcot) and Rock N Roller Coaster (DHS).

One of the interesting thing I noticed is that 4 of my 10 favorite attractions are in the Magic Kingdom, but MK is actually my least favorite park to visit. Hmm, must think about this some more....

Favorite non-Disney Attraction: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (IoA)

I think your comment is an important one. There is more to a theme park than an individual attraction. The World Showcase at Epcot is beloved, yet there are hardly many traditional attractions.
