    Love "Drinking Around the World" at Epcot! After 11 years I have finally given up my Florida Resident Annual Pass as I am so disappointed with the lack of anything new (sorry - but new Fantasyland just doesn't cut it with me). Miss the old days when going to Pleasure Island ment dressing up, dancing at the clubs, enjoying the Adventurer's Club and Comedy Warehouse, and keeping entrance a "ticket only" experience so you don't have to worry about tripping over strollers. Only go to Universal now, but will rejoin Disney Family im sure in the next few years when I start to miss it!:thumbsup2

    Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. It is always the attraction that we go on before heading up to dinner. Unfortunately it will be out of service while we are there in October.

    EPCOT is our favorite park, and yep we still like Spaceship Earth. :confused3

    We (well I ) do like Splash Mountain, and BTMRR too. Not a huge fan of MK though.

    Kind of tired of Disney's cut backs and changes. :guilty: We still have our APs but we don't go nearly as often as we used to (almost weekly).

    Non-Disney? We really aren't park people, although we have done Universal and Sea World and Busch. Didn't like Busch at all. Universal, meh. Sea World is ok...

    Favorite ride there. There are rides at Sea World? ;)

    Favorite Disney rides, in no special order:
    Grizzly River Run - one of the things DCA did right
    Expedition Everest
    Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror (DHS)
    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
    Soarin' (Over California)
    Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom
    Haunted Mansion (WDW)
    Splash Mountain (WDW)
    Peter Pan's Flight
    Storybookland Canal Boats - love the miniatures
    Matterhorn Bobsleds
    Space Mountain (edge to DL)

    Sorry... Couldn't limit to 10!

    favorite non-Disney:

    That's tougher, and I haven't visited non-Disney parks very often lately. Here are some candidates:

    Steel Eel (Sea World of Texas)
    El Aseradero (world's first log flume ride -at Six Flags Over Texas)
    ET the Extra Terrestrial
    (I'm guessing that there are some others at Universal Studios that should be on this list, but I haven't been in over 10 years)

    Ultra-Twister (Astroworld)
    Back To The Future
    But these last two are long-gone

    I've been to Cedar Point 1.5 times.

    The first time was a miserable day.

    The second time I didn't make it since our bus went off the road into the ditch near Oregon (is that right?). I ended up spending my day as the signing authority and pseudo-parent for 14 hospitalized kids aged 10-16.

    I really don't think I want to try again. But, if we're ever in the area at the same time you can try to change my mind.

    It's what I get for putting too much faith in the Six Flags marketing machine!

    El Aseradero is one of the few areas left there that has any remnents of the park's original charm.

    I'm not a big fan of what Six Flags has become under years of corporate mismanagement. Maybe I'll get out to Cedar Point some day!

    Pooh's Hunny Hunt at Tokyo Disneyland
    Journey to the Center of the Earth at Tokyo DisneySea
    Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Paris
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland Paris
    Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World
    Indiana Jones at Disneyland

    And I must admit that Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at IOA was awesome.

    TSMM
    Star Tours
    ToT
    Splash Mountain
    Aerosmith

    Its so hard to pick my fave. WDW attraction but I always go back and forth between PotC and HM. I also adore Splash Mountain and BTMR. As for fave non-Disney ride? Probably The Mummy at USO.
