That said, I chose new because there needs to be a balance. Disney isn't creating as many new attractions in Orlando, and it's noticeable when there aren't that many new things after a few years between visits. I hope this changes in the upcoming years so it's about more than nostalgia.
First time I went to Carsland, you could see the expressions of young (& old) fans who were completely giddy over RSR & the land.
Imagine if Disney just stopped with what was originally in Disneyland or the MK. No other parks, no new attractions, or lands.
I think new attractions are needed, because there are always new ideas, new generations, new inspirations, new techs, new things to discover & explore.
Since I am long time fan of classic, old, venerable rides like Disneyland's Pirates, Universal's Spider-Man, and Silver Dollar City's Fire In The Hole, I had to go with "Old Stuff" based on the strict criteria of this vote.
What's "new" there? Do you count refurbishments as "new", such as Star Tours and Test Track? Or are those still considered "old". I call them old.
I really can't think of anything new... at all. Toy Story Mania is almost 5 years old, Expedition Everest is almost 7 years old, and Soarin is coming up on 8. I'll definitely ride the 7 Dwarfs' Mine Ride when it opens, but that is still a year+ away.
Disney World is fun and innovative, but they're not where I'd go to experience the newest and coolest attractions. Personally, I go back again and again for the FOOD! I've already hit up Flower & Garden 4 times because of the food kiosks/stands that make Food & Wine such a hit! I'm not a fan of the word "grits", but the Shrimp & Grits at the Florida stand....outstanding!!
I generally go for the food, but if I hit up Rockin Roller Coaster before eating at the 50s Diner, I won't mind. :) If I do Soarin' before eating at LeCellier, I can't complain. And if I ride the Haunted Mansion prior to chowing down at Liberty Tree Tavern, I'm a happy camper (in a DoomBuggy!).
And again ... Most of all the Jungle Cruise.
And thank you.
Midway clunkers, bah humbug! =)
Disney attractions can be considered the Godiva Chocolate of the theme park world, elegant and expensive. Cedar Point (ok, and HersheyPark)can be considered the Hershey Chocolate of the theme park world, tasty and affordable. I love Godiva Chocolate, but can't afford it all the time. I love a good Hershey Bar, also, and can afford one more often.
I voted old because I've got a Disney pass and that's about all I can afford to go to right now. Maybe if Big Thunder was done by now...naw, that'd still be "old".
