List Mania: Attractions to Import to WDW

This week, the WDW News Today Podcast covered their top 10 attractions to import to WDW from the other parks.  Here at AI, we love lists, love stealing ideas, and we love offering our unqualified opinion, so here’s our list (in no particular order (we’re too lazy to actually rank these things)):

  1. Indiana Jones Adventure, Disneyland – I know some people really like Dinosaur, but I think Indy blows it away.  From the first step into the queue, to the last, somewhat random effect, this attraction shows us everything that Dinosaur could be, but isn’t.  With over 160,000 possible effect combinations, it’s never the same experience.
  2. Alice in Wonderland, Disneyland – The classic dark-ride take on Alice in Wonderland is a reminder of how much more Alice we could use in the parks.
  3. Space Mountain, Disneyland – When I first heard that WDW’s Space Mountain was going down for improvements, I desperately hoped that we would get Disneyland’s version.  Alas, not to be.  The Disneyland version just feels so much more fun to me and the exhilaration after riding it certainly exceeds that experience after the newest update to WDW’s Space Mountain.
  4. Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, Tokyo Disneyland – While not thrilled with the theme, the ride system and concept definitely need to be used somehow.  This is the next stage in dark rides, and we need it in Florida.
  5. Journey to the Center of the Earth, Tokyo DisneySea – I’ve heard nothing but good things about this attraction and think it would be a great addition.
  6. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Tokyo DisneySea – Another attraction with a high amount of praise and many fans.
  7. Phantom Manor, Disneyland Paris – Some say this is the best Haunted Mansion.  I may not agree, but willing to give it a try.
  8. Space Mountain, Disneyland Paris – A new take on Space Mountain that ups the thrills.  Still undecided between this one and the Disneyland one as to which is the best Space Mountain in the world.
  9. Pirates of the Caribbean, Disneyland – Every time I’m on the WDW PotC, I miss the Disneyland version.
  10. Monsters Inc. Ride & Go Seek – A good use of audio animatronics and a fun attraction using the Monsters, Inc. theme.
