My sister and I have this conversation a lot heading into and during our trips. This is actually a big time killer while waiting on line. My top 5 would be:

1) Runaway Train - because I can do this ride over and over again
2) Rock 'n Rollercoaster
3) ToT
4) Expedition Everest
5) Space Mountain - A classic - I think you need to have at least one classic in there

As far as least liked rides, it's tough to say. There aren't any rides I dislike in Disney, to be honest. I don't know if you consider it a ride, but I hate The Hall of Presidents..

Splash Mountain
Space Mountain
Pirates of the Caribbean

Least Favorites
Tomorrowland Speedway - hate the smell
Astro Orbitor - lines is always crazy for a carnival type ride
Ellen's energy ride - only good for an air conditioned nap
Star wars - I admit it's cool - but it makes me so sick
All of Dinoland at AK - hate the way it looks - primeval whirl is too jerky and the kids hate Dinosaur - we don't even go in that area anymore. We were hoping they'd scrap that area for the Avatar area, but no....

I am on the fence about Tower of Terror - the special effects are amazing in fact one of the BEST in all of Disney World but I can't take the drops!!

Least Favourite:

Great Movie Ride (like the ride but was disappointed with our tour guide - she
was rather boring)
Tough to Be a Bug (I was convinced to ride and people around us were actually laughing bc we were like curled up). I dont like surprises and I dont like bugs; why did I ride?
Peter Pans Flight (long line for a short ride)

I think that is it. I loved most of the rides.

Only picking 5 can be difficult....

Expedition Everest - Great coaster that rides smoother then some of the older coasters at Disney.

Tower of Terror - Great queue, well done story, and a fantastic ride...one of my personal favorite presentations.

Pirates of the Caribbean - My kids love it and there excitement of riding makes me love it.

Crush 'N' Gusher - A "water" coaster...great fun, a lot of speed and one of the reasons I love the water parks.

Space Mountain - A bit jerky at times, but still a classic Disney Ride enhanced by the presentation (sounds, the lack of light...)

Honorable Mentions....

Star Tours
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
Splash Mountain
Toy Story Mania
Haunted Mansion

Least Favorites....

Soarin' - Just not much to it for me....the queue is kind of blah.....I may like it more if they were to updated to include all of America.

Dumbo - Too many visits standing in the sun waiting to ride one of the least interesting rides they have (though the updated version is much better).

Stitch - Please do something better with that space....Alien Encounter was great, but Stitch is.....below Disney standards.

Tomorrowland Speed Way - Any ride that smells like I'm mowing the lawn is a pass for me.

I can't think of a 5th one.....

Let me start by saying we love the rides, shows, and more. It is not that that I hate my least favorite rides. I just find them boring or they make me sick (motion sickness sufferer) & I do not like to get wet.


Peter Pan Flights

Least Favorite:
Star Wars
Tea Cups
Tower Of Terror
Splash Mountain & Kali River Rapids (equal terms)

I love many of the rides & shows. I would see them over and over. I just do not like to be scared, dizzy, wet, sick.......frankly, I end up miserable. I try to keep myself happy on holiday.
