Underrated/Overrated: WDW attractions


Earning My Ears

Underrated: Habit Heroes (and the other small attractions in that building) I'm not sure if it's still there, it was as of my last trip in November. It's in an air conditioned building, little or no wait. It's an awesome way to spend an hour at the hottest parts of the day or while your waiting for your FP+.

Overrated: Frozen ride. Nothing is worth a 5 hour wait or even 2 hours. It's nice to have new rides but I don't get why people are going nuts for this ride.

Underrated: Sum of All Thrills in Innoventions has always been one of my favorites and not many people know about it

Overrated: Peter Pan because the wait is just ridiculous for the ride that it is and Buzz Lightyear because of all of the hype around everyone wanting to become a galatic hero
Ahhhh!! I love Buzz Lightyear. And yes I am a Galatic Hero. A total of 6 times 4 at WDW and twice at the DL. Legit wins, no ride stalls.

Underrated: Maharajah Jungle Trek (AK). I think this is probably the most beautiful and immersive area of property. I could watch those tigers for hours (I start to miss my cats, don't judge me) :tigger: But many people seem to either not bother with it, or walk through quickly. I thought it was very interesting that it was part of a 'Best' on the recent Best and Worst show. It's such a great break and way to get out of the hurly burly of the Park.

Overrated: Seven Dwarves Mine Train. I am a reasonably thin 6'2 male, and basically cannot fit in the car. The Attraction is really cool, but its so short. I do not understand the two, three, four hour waits at all. I think part of my issue is, is that I feel so squeezed and uncomfortable I don't think this attraction is worth it for me.

    Overrated: Slinky Dog Dash. It's a nice family roller-coaster but definitely not worth a 2 hour wait.
    Underrated: People Mover. Awesome ride given the shortness of the lines (but based on our most recent trip around Easter, people seem to be catching on).

    This is fun! It’s been awhile since I’ve been down so my choices might be outdated, but...

    Magic Kingdom
    Underrated: People Mover (hardcore Disney fans get it, but for everyone else...)
    Overrated: Country Bear Jamboree (terrifying!)

    Underrated: Livin’ With the Land (super cool behind the scenes sort of ride)
    Overrated: Soarin’ (cool but I don’t think the lines are worth it)

    Hollywood Studios
    Underrated: Indiana Jones Stunt Show (I know it’s dated, but it’s a classic and the behind the scenes aspect is what this park was all about!)
    Overrated: Toy Story Midway Mania (not that it’s bad, but Buzz Lightyear is the OG and better, IMO)

    Animal Kingdom
    Underrated: Dinosaur (great ride - doesn’t get enough love!)
    Overrated: Kali River Rapids (only worth it on a hot/dry day - otherwise it’s more trouble than it’s worth!)

    Magic Kingdom:
    Underrated: Mad Tea Party (it's my favorite ride at the parks, and I think it gets overlooked a lot)
    Overrated: tie between Country Bear Jamboree and Carousel of Progress (both are extremely boring and outdated to me)

    Underrated: Living with the Land (if you're into plant stuff or behind-the-scenes stuff, this is a good ride for that)
    Overrated: Soarin' (I just don't get the appeal of it. It's very mediocre compared to other screen-based rides/attractions.)

    Animal Kingdom:
    Underrated: Kali River Rapids (what can I say, I enjoy the raft/water rides. And you never know if you'll come out of it bone dry or soaked to the bone)
    Overrated: DinoLand USA (yes, I'm lumping this whole area together because they could do so much better with it)

    Hollywood Studios:
    Underrated: Muppet*Vision 3D (after all these years, the Muppets deserve more love and their own land...)
    Overrated: Star Wars (period. I'm sure I'll get complaints for this, but I just don't get the hype or appeal of any of it...Now, if you threw in an attraction dedicated to Spaceballs, that would be another matter entirely ;) )
