Ranking poll is up for the qualification round.

Vote away and smack talk all you want.



Even pick your ride to cheer for through the tournament.

Magic Kingdom East
Cinderella Castle
Space Mountain (Magic Kingdom)
Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
Tomorrowland Transit Authority
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
Walt Disney World Railroad
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Peter Pan's Flight
Stitch's Great Escape!


I put number 9 on this one just to show what it is. Representin' as the only fan on these boards, I believe! The castle had to get #1 because it literally makes the park what it is no matter where you are. Without Cinderella castle, MK isn't MK. Under the Sea is probably ranked a little high, but I didn't care for the other rides in the list much either. Mine Train gets knocked back because I've never ridden it.

Magic Kingdom West
Splash Mountain
Haunted Mansion
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Pirates of the Caribbean
Frontierland Shootin' Arcade
Jungle Cruise
Tom Sawyer Island
Liberty Belle Riverboat


Epcot
Test Track
Spaceship Earth (Epcot)
Soarin'
Maelstrom
Mission: SPACE
Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
Living with the Land
Journey into Imagination with Figment


World Showcase should have been a choice because it would have been my number one.

Hollywood Studios
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
Toy Story Midway Mania
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
Walt Disney: One Man's Dream
Voyage of the Little Mermaid
Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage
The Great Movie Ride
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror


Tower of Terror gets pushed back because I've never been able to talk the wife into riding it, so haven't ridden it.

Animal Kingdom
Expedition Everest
Kilimanjaro Safaris
Primeval Whirl
Kali River Rapids
Dinosaur
Wildlife Express Train
Festival of the Lion King
Finding Nemo the Musical


If Flame Tree were an option it would have been my number two. Ran out of attractions for #8, but I've seen Nemo with my nieces and it was entertaining.

Parades / Fireworks / Characters
Wishes
Main Street Electrical Parade
Chip n' Dale
Alice in Wonderland
Festival of Fantasy Parade
Illuminations
Talking Mickey
Fantasmic


Festival of Fantasy gets knocked back because I haven't seen it. Missed it by accident on the last trip we took.
