Favorite Ride?

I plan on hitting all the theme parks at Disney as I have not been there in years! If you only had time to go on ONE ride at each park, which one would you go for?

By this I am meaning, which the DON'T YOU DARE MISS IT ride at EACH theme park!

This should be fun!

Hmm this is a tough one!! At Epcot, I think my favourite is Mission Space, or maybe Soarin!! Animal Kingdom, got to be Expedition Everest, Hollywood Studios, I really like the backlot tour there (sad I know!!) and the Magic Kingdom, I think it would be Space Mountain.

To be honest I prefer the Universal parks, and my favourite ride ever was Back To the Future, but sadly that has now gone :(

If you love Space Mountain be aware it will be closed for several months for renovations.

MK It was always Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, until they got rid of it.

so now it's Jungle Cruise

Epcot Soarin

Animal Kingdom- Safari

Hollywood Studios-Great Movie Ride

Hey weave!

There are a lot of great suggestions posted here, but, if you want THE best recommendations, here are mine (and theses are for adults only! Children under the age of 30 should be banned from Disneyworld, IMO!)

1. Hollywood- Tower of Terror (if U have the guts)- This is, without question, THE best ride that Disney has to offer you. Bring a change of underwear)

2. Animal Kingdom- Expedition Everest- very cool because of the great foreplay! Do what you must to get the front car, which usually means asking the attendant and being patient and polite.

3. Hollywood- the Aerosmith Rock n Roll Roller Coaster. This is the best Disney Coaster, IMO! Easily the equal to Space Mountain. Go early to get a speedpass thingy, then go again! This is not a Universal Island of Adventure level coaster, IMO, but it is very cool.

4. Hmmmm..... My vote is a tie for 4th place. In the "don't dare miss this ride category" I must continue to rank Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom in my "top 4", even after all these years! Still wonderful!

In a tie I cast a vote for the Dinosaur ride in the Animal Kingdom. Yes, yes...there is support for either Splash Mountain and/or the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, both at the Magic Kingdom, but, hey, you are all entitled to your feeble,uninformed opinions! LOL!

Truth is, U do not go to Disneyworld Theme Parks for the rides. You go for the "Disney"!

For rides that wet your pants and soak your shirts in vomit, you go to Universal's Islands of Adventure (IOA)! If you dare!
