Sorry, Dom. I enjoyed Star Tours a lot, but I despise the original movie enough that I can't vote for it here. As a person who doesn't have nearly as much Disney experience as many on this site, I love Pirates. One of my favorite memories is getting stuck on Pirates for 15 minutes with the sound off, but all AA's working. The mute dog is an image that will never leave me (this was in the mid-90's)
And I have actually seen the new Star Tours with open seats on weekdays. Just saying.
With Pirates, I've always liked that you can make up your own backstory based on what is happening even with the newer Johnny Depp & Friends additions.
Saying TSMM is a better attraction than MIB is like saying Doctor Doom is better than Tower of Terror. Both are comparable in their set up, but one clearly had more time, creativity, and love put into it.
Well, that just goes to show how much better Universal is at allocating resources compared to Disney.
Just because TSMM took longer to make than MIB doesn't mean it's better. All that really matters is the end product. MIB is an after thought of a movie franchise, but as an attraction it's not just a bunch of TV screens with Wii-motes, water guns, and air cannons. I can do that at home. MIB, I can't replicate at home.
