Which Classic Attraction is Your Favorite? I'm interested to find out but I'm guessing its going to be Space Mountain!

03-24-2014, 10:13 PM
Team Jungle Cruise!

To me, those jokes just don't get old...

Haunted Mansion - but it is hard to pick because I love them all! Like asking a mom which is her favorite child. Impossible!

Really so true it is really hard mine would have to be Dumbo the Flying Elephant or Snow Whites Scary Adventures(although is now closed down!).

I very much doubt space mountain would "win".

Haunted Mansion for me.

03-24-2014, 11:16 PM
Among the classics, it would have to be Haunted Mansion! All five of us can ride it again and again! Lol! One visit, we rode it six times in a row!:mickey:

Are we talking just MK or all of WDW... If all, then for me it has to be Spaceship Earth.

Easy one, Haunted Mansion:hmghost:

03-25-2014, 09:13 AM
Can't pin it down to just one. I'm assuming, however, that we're talking about the old stuff...the stuff from DL and Magic Kingdom.

If you twisted my arm, I'd have to go with Splash Mountain, followed very closely by Haunted Mansion and then Pirates.

I love carousel of progress!!

03-25-2014, 10:08 AM
To me - Peter Pan's Flight (hence my name!). Dumbo and Jungle Cruise!

03-25-2014, 10:08 AM
Peter Pan. My favorite "classic".

03-25-2014, 10:37 AM
If I have to pick just one, I have to go with Haunted Mansion. :hmghost:

03-25-2014, 10:51 AM
This is an easy one..for me it's Peter Pan.True classic Disney.From the whimsical cue (I know it can be looong).To the attraction itself.Plus,it's the one ride I remember vividly from my first WDW visit. I had been to tons of local "fairs" but remember never seeing anything like PP.
Now,it's our family tradition that PP is the first attraction we visit,after that anything goes.
SM would be my second classic,then HM then Walts cop.:mickey:

POTC followed closely by HM

Favorite classic by park:

MK - Carousel of Progress
EP - Spaceship Earth with the original format
Studios - Test Track
AK - Bug's Life

03-25-2014, 01:57 PM
For me, it's a tie between Haunted Mansion and Pitates of the Caribbean. Peter Pan would be third. (Peter Pan is also one of my favorite classic Disney movies.)

03-25-2014, 02:03 PM
Carousel of Progress...hands down. :number1:

03-25-2014, 07:18 PM
Haunted Mansion, but 20,000 Leagues would be a close 2nd if it were still around.

The epitome of a *classic* Disney attraction:


Relive the past.

View the present.

"See the future". Technology presented in Horizons is here. Today. :)

Great storyline. "Choose your own future". Originally designed as *the* sequel to Carousel of Progress.

Horizons is where the phrase, "If we can dream it, we can do it" originated. It's often mislabeled as a Walt or Roy quote, but, it was specifically written for the attraction by Tom Fitzgerald. :)

03-25-2014, 10:37 PM
Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean are pretty close to a tie. I can't make a decision on which would be number one. 20,000 Leagues is right behind those two and would probably be number one if it still existed.

No contest for me ... Haunted Mansion is hands down my favorite Disney theme park attraction ever.

03-26-2014, 08:56 AM
My avatar says it all....The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!

I can't believe there aren't more votes for the MK mountains! I do love Space, also Thunder and also Splash. I think I love Thunder most because it makes me laugh the whole time. The wildest ride in the wilderness!

03-27-2014, 01:01 AM
Splash Mt. followed by POTC.

03-27-2014, 10:05 AM
Another one for Peter Pan. There is just something about this ride from when my kids were younger!

03-27-2014, 02:07 PM
Carousel of Progress:mickey:

03-31-2014, 12:24 AM
Since to me "classic" refers to long-time Magic Kingdom attractions, I'm limiting my response to Magic Kingdom (both DL and WDW) only.

#1 - Peter Pan's Flight :cloud9::cloud9:- this has always been the perfect example of fantasy.

Tied for #2 - Small World, Peoplemover, Carousel of Progress, Dumbo and Haunted Mansion

03-31-2014, 01:12 PM
Pirates of the Caribbean, a close second is The Haunted Mansion! :mickey:

04-01-2014, 08:06 AM
Tie between Peter Pan and Carousel of Progress.

04-02-2014, 11:16 AM
Haunted mansion and Tom Sawyers island. I love them for different reasons. One is just a great place to relax and see the Mk from a different view, HM is just so cool!

04-02-2014, 04:36 PM
Haunted Mansion is my absolute favorite attraction. During my last ride through, my doombuggy stopped (broke down) in the dining room/ballroom and I got to watch the dancing ghosts, ghost playing the pipe organ and ghosts on the chandeliers for quite some time. That was a wonderful surprise!

04-02-2014, 06:45 PM
I'm assuming by classic you mean pre-Epcot. Stuff that's been there since near the beginning. I'll have to go with Pirates. Now if you're talking Classics as in cars (25 years is a classic), then I'll go with Splash Mt. It was the last big thrill ride that relied on old tech. After that, you started seeing the super-tech rides like RnRC and Tower of Terror.

04-02-2014, 11:34 PM
I absolutely love the Peoplemover

04-03-2014, 09:04 AM
At the Magic Kingdom Pirates, Haunted Mansion and Country Bear Jamboree. I do love Space Mountain though. Epcot, I loved Horizons but spaceship Earth is my favorite!

04-03-2014, 09:35 AM
Just want to say the fact that Splash Mountain could be considered a Classic Ride makes me feel REALLY OLD!!! I remember when that was a brand new ride...

04-03-2014, 02:05 PM
Another vote for Haunted Mansion.

04-04-2014, 12:09 PM
Jungle Cruise !!! :thumbsup:

Tough one.
