Pooh is a better ride at WDW than the lesser version at DL.

I actually thought that was one of the few that didn't rate FP+. Is it really supposed to make the cut? If so, I will have to add a fourth rank.

It can't be that much better... We love the DL ride...but having it hidden by splash means no lines most of the time.

I'm kind of surprised you didn't use the old ticket-style ranking system. Shouldn't all the E-Tickets be As? Or the As be Es?

In my opinion, that reference system is too old to be terribly useful. Too much has changed in the interim.

I think there's a definite distinction from the designation of an attraction vs. the NEED for a FP.

For instance, PotC I consider to be an "E Ticket Ride" but a FP is not necessarily a priority.

And there's that.

Those old ratings don't figure in things like capacity or in some cases demand. My list does, based on my own qualitative judgment.

I might recommend knocking Epcot C Spot down to a B (or even a C). Since it reopened in June I've never seen the wait more than 10 minutes, and that's stretching it. I've literally WALKED IN to a empty room at least 3 times. Maybe with time it'll have a higher demand?

Once the other new Character Greetings are added it might make things interesting.

Will do. I trust your insight without question.
