I had no idea. How truly terrifying, especially that agent guy.
It was weird, a one timer type ride. Monsters Inc way better...I can still picture the Drew Cary animatronic to this day.

I do miss the Soap Opera dining experience they had there when DCA first opened, that was really fun and unique!

Luigi's and Nemo - I walk on by with no regrets.

As a family of 4 I often get vetoed for A LOT of rides/shows.

NO parades, WOC or F! (and I am fairly certain DS2 would LOVE the parades at least).
NO Captain EO, ITTBAB, Muppets 3D (though I am ok with these not seeing these as I didn't care for HISTA)
NO canoes cause DH doesn't see the purpose of having to work for your ride LOL
NO Nemo
NO Roger Rabbit

I think the Gadget Coaster in TT is overrated. DS7 stood in line with his uncle for about an hour for a ride that lasted 30 seconds.
If DS7 had it his way no IASW, no HM, no Matterhorn.
TSMM, we only go on Ariel's cause it's always a 5 min wait (but DS7 would try to convince me otherwise), Luigi's, TOT.

Back in the day SSL (I can still see Whoopi Goldberg in animatronic form) and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, though WWTBAM was good only on those ridiculously hot summer days. You could cool off for a least a good hour and play a fun game at the same time!! **I actually got to be in the hot seat once!!** and Mali-boomer cause that was a ride at any other theme park.

Until I had kids I didn't care for many of the rides at Fantasyland (Canal Boats and Casey's Train esp) but they love those rides!

*I kinda wished they had the Rocket Rods or a rocket rods type ride (like RSR but all high velocity not just at the end* and i might be in the minority to get RR back

Little Mermaid. Short-circuited storyline with no climax that just lets you down, and a really boring queue (especially compared to the ride building/castle/waterfall the Magic Kingdom version got.)

Space Mountain is my favourite and Matterhorn is my least favourite, mainly because it always bruised me. I haven't been on the new sleds yet but the old would actually bruise my knees and jerk me around for all it's worth. I never felt like that with SM. Of course, like a dummy I went on Matterhorn every time, like I had amnesia and hoped it got better since my last visit.

This next trip we most likely won't go on because I highly doubt DS will want to ride it.

I'm with all those that said Toy Story Midway Mania. I'm lucky enough to have a husband that is also not a fan so we usually get to skip it. The only time we really go on it is when we go with friends. Every time I step out of that ride, my arm feels like it's going to fall off and I want to cry from the pain.
I know, I know, a big baby.

Ditto. To me those are "do them once to do it" rides. But, my experience on Autopia was with my DS7 driving and he nearly refused to NOT make it a jerky ride. HAHA!

Nemo is nice once..but not worth the wait.

Autopia - great for the kids, terrible for the adults. I "get" this ride, but avoid it if possible. However my kids love it, wish they were tall enough to ride on their own.

Nemo - I love this ride, but won't wait an hour for it.

Who knew you needed a couple weeks of dumbbell training before a DL trip.

I've only done it once but loved it... sore arm and all.

There are "classic" rides you just gotta go on once.... My son and I went in Storybook Land, Jungle Cruise, and Autopia and once was enough.... Just didn't like them at all... We went on Peter Pan, Dumbo, Snow White, Pinocchio, Alice, and Winnie the Pooh just once... He is 13 but I told him they were classics and you just HAD TO ride them once...

As for DCA.... Other than Cars Land and World of Color... We could have done without seeing it... I just didn't get that park.... California Screaming was pretty good, did ride that one twice..

New sleds on Matterhorn are so much better. Each person has more seat/leg space, and I feel like the ride is a bit smoother. So much fun at night!!

FYI, Winnie the pooh is not classic. It is one of the "newer" rides, not an original.

The Matterhorn may have new cars but it is rougher. I went twice last visit and the second time was better as I learned "how" to ride it. Kept my back far away from the seat so it didn't get slammed. Also kept what butt I do have, up off the seat to save it from injury.
