    OK this is a little exercise I want MANY Disdads to participate in.
    (If you answered on our other forum...no need to answer here)

    What we are looking for from each of you give several (at least 10, no more than 20) "Attractions" regarding the Magic Kingdom. By "Attractions" I mean, Rides, Shows, Parades, Resturants, Experience, etc...that when someone ask you... "Hey, (name)...what is it that you like so much about the Magic Kingdom?"

    I'm not looking for you to rank these...just what you think of when you think Magic Kingdom. This is "My Magic Kingdom."

    I encourage you to make your list without influence from others posts...make your list first then read the others and edit your post later if needed...but I think the first gut impression will probably be best. Cause this is Your Magic Kingdom...not Nate's.

    I think it is more "what don't you like here" and the list will be short. MK is the Park of Parks! The Happiest Place on Earth. Not a place I like to eat at. Few attractions are disappointing, but for most part, love the atmosphere.

    In no specific order:
    1. Main Street USA
    2. Cinderella's Castle
    3. Tarzan's Tree House
    4. POTC
    5. Haunted Mansion
    6. Jungle Cruz
    7. Splash Mtn (loaded w/ 12 of us in it getting uncomfortably soaked)
    8. Thunder Mtn Railorad
    9. WDW Railroad (to get back to main gate when uncomfortably soaking wet)
    10. It's a Small World
    11. Winnie the Pooh
    12. Phillarmagic
    13. Cosmic Ray's Cafe
    14. Pinocchio Village Haus
    15. Crystal Palace breakfast w/ Pooh & the Gang
    16. Parade & Fireworks and more Parades & Fireworks
    17. MNSHP
    18. Buzz Lightyear
    19. ...
