Aloha Friday: What’s Your Favorite Disney Attraction?
As I mentioned before, we’ll be headed to the Disney Social Media Moms convention. We’re headed there early so we’ll have time to go on favorite rides from our trip last year and go on ones we missed. Some old favorites that we can’t wait to experience again:
- Toy Story Mania – This 3D ride/game is so fun we rode on it twice and NHL is still talking about it. One of his favorite video games now is Toy Story Mania for the Wii. He plays it over and over every chance he gets. One of NHL’s first thoughts when we told him we were going back to Disney World was riding Toy Story Mania again.
- Finding Nemo The Musical – This is a Broadway style, Broadway quality musical included in the price of your park admission. The entire story of Finding Nemo is told using handheld marionettes. Now the Pixar movie was terrific so they had a high hurdle to clear. They definitely cleared it. The songs, scenery…. well, everything is just so high quality that you might think you’ve been transported to an expensive Broadway production. This is not to be missed (though it might be hard to get in as it is very popular).
- Tie Dye Cheesecake – Ok, not an “attraction” per se, but the Pop Century’s multi-colored desert is just too good to pass up. Red velvet cake topped with cheesecake in various colored swirls. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. Yes, I replicated it, but still a chance for the original will not be passed up.
- Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor – Mike Wazowski and company are keeping Monsteropolis powered not by screams but by laughter. To aid them, they pull humans (us) into their world and put on a comedy show. While you wait to go in, you can text some jokes which might be used. You might also be picked on to be the butt of some jokes. The show is hilarious and, thanks to improvisation, never the same twice. Plus, now that our phones have texting plans, we can send in some jokes of our own.
So my Aloha Friday question to you is: What is your favorite Disney attraction (be it ride, show or even eatery)? If you’ve never been to Disney before, what would you look forward to were you headed there?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the MckLinky there if you are participating.
Well, I love it all!! And I do mean all. But I especially love Space Mountain. My favorite show is Fantasmic and I think my favorite eatery is Tony’s – its the place from Lady and the Tramp. On Main Street. Just as you enter Magic Kingdom. 🙂

Oh I am most likely going to be in the minority, however I am not a Disney fan. I was forced to go to both parks numerous times and never cared for either one.

I love me some Disney World. My favorite place is “It’s A Small World” at Magic Kingdom!!

Unfortunately I’ve never been to Disneyland. I have been to Universal Studios though three times, and took a helicopter ride over Disneyland, and saw the Mickey Mouse shaped lake. So, I guess I could say the lake shaped like Mickey Mouse is my favorite being that’s all I ever seen.

I loved that Dr. Suess area last time we went in 01. VERY cool!

I have always loved the Pirates of the Caribbean. Still love those pirates movie and Johnny Depp as a pirate.

When we went last year, Space Mountain was closed. NHL was disappointed as he wanted to go on it. It’s open now, though, so we’ll likely ride that one. Oh, and we went to Tony’s when we were in Disney World in 2001 for our honeymoon and will be going back there this time.
Pirates was cool. Unfortunately, JSL didn’t like it. The intro was too spooky for him. He clung to me hiding his face in my shoulder until he passed out. Then I had a hot little napper on my shoulder the entire ride!
He did the same thing during the Haunted Mansion ride.
Space Mountain, Expedition to Everest, Toy Story Mania, Mickey’s Philharmagic, Fantasmic, The Spectromagic Parade (although I still miss the Electrical Light Parade music), The Lion King show in Animal Kingdom, 50’s Prime Time Cafe
I love it all but my fav is Its a Small World!!

I’m so jealous that you are going to SMM. I just missed out on registering. I hope you have a great time and you’ll have to let us know how it goes.
We were at Disney World last February so I can’t whine too much. We all loved the Animal Safari in Animal Kingdom. At the Magic Kingdom I always love The Haunted Mansion but my two were a bit too young for it this time.

Have a great day!

Gosh, it has been for.for.for.forever since I went to Disney. “Back in the day” I loved The Materhorn. …which is probably a kiddy ride by now. LOL
.-= Kelley´s last blog ..Aloha Friday =-.
I love Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain and the Matterhorn….oh and Indiana Jones lol
.-= Becca´s last blog ..Aloha Friday #23 =-.
I have never been to Disney before. I don’t know what attraction I would want to see the most to be honest. I want to see it all!!
I have to say it’s not even a ride…..personal favorite is at Hollywood Studios…..the Animation area…..I love going in and being taught to draw the characters. I still have all my drawings….one day I’ll frame them for a Disney themed game room!
