Luigis' for sure. We waited "20" minutes for it (really more like 30) and underwhelmed doesn't even begin to describe what we thought. It was boring, we barely moved and there was no point. I wouldn't even ride it again if it was a walk on.

I also second the feelings on Roger Rabbit. It's okay, and I'd ride it if the lines were shorter, but I won't wait for it more than 5 minutes.

We only ride RR with a FP, won't do it if we have to wait in line. Although we do like the line decor and we will walk through it if the line is 10 minutes or so. lol I know that's a contradiction but it's true.
Rocket Rods.....OMG that ride sucked!! And we went right after it opened so the lines were insane! NEVER again. lol
Little Mermaid, I guess I was just expecting more and we did a AP preview so we had a long line, we waited about an hour to get on it and then I was let down. I like it well enough, but I won't ride it if the line is more then 10-20 minutes.

YES! These bumper cars are extremely slow! I hope I don't have to ride these again. I actually kind of like a bumper car ride now and then at our local amusement park but these things were a major let down even for this type of ride.

I always felt Roger rabbit was the worst ride ever until Luigis.... That was the worst waste of 15 minutes I ever spent in my life lol

We went on Luigi's for the first time over Thanksgiving. We waited about 20 minutes and that was to long. If the tires were controlled better it would be a fun ride. I wouldn't be suprised to see more tweaks to that ride down the road.

When we went on Autopia last week, we stood on our waiting numbers where you load in the car for several minutes, even the other track had come, unloaded, and departed already and we were still waiting, although some of the first cars had come back. Finally this girl, probably about 10 or so pulls up very slowly in her car, she must've been having issues with the pedal or the engine (I know my engine stalled 3x).

The girl did not look happy. Finally a CM helped her get her car to her number spot. The second she got out of the car ride she just burst into tears and hugged her Dad who was behind her. I felt so bad for her. I just push the pedal for my daughter while she steers, even for me an adult, on some of those cars I have to push down hard on that pedal to get the car moving. Between that and the car stalling and the fumes, I'd say that it is past time for Autopia to get a major overhaul or be closed.

I'd say at the very least they should be retrofitting them with fuel-injected engines and catalytic converters. I shudder to think what it was like in the 50s/60s when they had even less advanced carbs and were using leaded gas.

We waited about the same length of time for Nemo and Luigi's (first time on both) this summer, probably a little longer for Luigi's. But I actually quite enjoyed Luigi's and would ride again, but Nemo I was kind of underwhelmed by.

We just got back last night! I agree that Luigi's is lame. We waited 30 min for that ride, never again. It was too much work to lean to get your tire to move.

RSR was an awesome ride, but if we didn't get a FP, I wouldn't ride it. I personally don't feel ANY ride is worth more than a 30-40 min wait.

My toddler LOVED Hemlich's train. We probably rode it with him 5 or 6 times. My older DS rode it too, but he was just riding to be with his brother, and wasn't really that into it.

I know they removed the joysticks from Luigis shortly before opening. I don't know why. It seems if you could control the tire it would be more fun. Maybe it didn't work.

Uhm, does World of Color count? Got my FPs first thing in the morning last year, and even got Front Row in the blue section. Sadly the show did not live up to all the hype or my expectations . Specially not after seen Dreams! at DL Paris. Now that's a show worth getting FPs for, which you don't need at all.

Does anyone else think World of Color isn't worth it? I was planning to keep my 5 year old up late the last 2 nights of our trip to see both World of Color and Fantasmic but if World of Color isn't really great then this isn't worth it - it will seem extra late to him since I'll have kept us on CST in order to make 7 am EMH each day!

I wasn't into WOC either. We saw it once, and I don't think I'll ever see it again. Just not worth it for me. I do like Fantasmic though!

WOC is definitely yawn-tastic.

Our kids are 6 and 7 and they still love going on Heimlich's Train. I actually sort of like it too, line is always short and it is a good sit down break ride, like Little Mermaid.

I like WOC better than the fireworks and Fantasmic. The only thing I don't like about is that it is really hard for short kids to see. So I always end up with one of my kids on my shoulders for 20 minutes or so.
