Worst Disney Dining: Don't really remember a really bad one.
Best Coaster: Rockin' Roller Coaster
-indoors, fast, good inversions, and music the whole time? Awesome.
Worst Coaster: N/A
-I really don't have negative feelings about any coaster at Disneyworld. Which is saying something, since I'm such a coaster fan.
Best Ride: Tower of Terror
-always a thrill, plus I'm a major Rod Serling fan
Worst Ride: Nemo
-had the potential of a fun aquarium view, but was just a glorified summary of the movie.
Best Show: Beauty and the Beast
-I'm biased here...it's my favorite movie.
Worst Show: The Little Mermaid
-the effects are dated, and the only live acting is Ariel...who has been bad the past few times I've seen the show. Really? Does Eric need to pantomime those two lines? And poorly lip sync?
Best 3/4-D: Phillarmagic
-so cool, with the added bonus of watching the little kids reach out to try to touch the gems.
Worst 3/4-D: Hone I Shrunk...
-used to love the movies and books, but found the attraction rather horrifying what with things under my feet. Although I hear it's been replaced recently?
Best Interactive Experience: Spaceship Earth
-They've updated the ride part to be cuter, and I love the room it ends in! When I was little, they featured an interactive tv that featured Alice in Wonderland, you could have conversations with the characters! That tech later went into Laugh Floor and Crush.
Worst 'Interactive' Experience: Stitch
-ugh. so bad. so awful.
Best Hotel: Yacht Club
-this is our home for Disney Vacation Club. we love it.
Worst Hotel: N/A
-Granted, I'm not hard to please with a hotel-if it's clean, and fairly up to date, I'm happy, but I can't find anything to complain about with the Disney hotels I've stayed at.
Best Dining: Teppan Edo
-so good. The food was incredible!
Worst Dining: Biergarten
-Food was mediocre, and I'm not a fan of the ambiance-which is exactly what it was promised. I went because my family wanted to :]
Best Virtual Reality: Soarin'
Worst Virtual Reality: N/A
-the ones I consider bad are probably not even enough to be called virtual reality...lol
Best Day to hit the parks: Thursday
-no idea why, but it's been the least crowded day in my personal experience
Worst day to hit the parks: Sunday
-oh man. Sundays are a nightmare.
What would be the point of single rider lines if they just use them like a normal line. If you have a row of four and a three person group in that row, you put in a single rider. You can't actually be that uncomfortable as most single riders are actually very friendly (cough...usually me...cough)
Anyhow, I really think its hard to defend the "worst" park at WDW since they are all very good. I would say, with sadness, that AK would get that vote for me, but thats because I HATED it when it opened. Its now one of my favorites, but I am bias on that!
Best Animal: Hippo.
Wurst Lunch: Braut.
Best Seat on the Jungle Cruise: Port Side/Stern
Worst Seat on Journey Into the Imagination With Figment: All of Them.
Best guy who ran up the pole because he was being attacked by a rhino: The guy on top.
Worst Joke in the Spiel: "I want to point out some plants ..."
Best snake related punchline: "No, plastic."
Worst attraction featuring three animated figures that look like Johnny Depp: 'Pirates of the Caribbean' at Walt Disney World.
Best One-Liner at Unload, "Spend four years getting a degree in musical theatre and here's where I end up? Stay in school kids." NOTE: That joke was tossed out BEFORE Weird Al wrote "Skipper Dan" (A YouTube clip confirms it).
Worst Part of the Jungle Cruise: As you walk thru unload and up the short hill, you glance back over your shoulder and quietly whisper, "It's over." But then you smile, because you know, someday in the future ... you would return, and trek into the jungle ... again.
Best Hippo: Charger off the starboard bow.
Worst Jungle Cruise Post: I couldn't imagine.
The best thing I saw was the Kilimanjaro Safari ride at Animal Kingdom. Very well done and a memory of a lifetime for me.
I also liked Monsters Inc Laughing Floor which was very well done and involved the audience.
As far as best park I would put Hollywood Studios and
Animal Kingdom on the top of my list followed by Epcot and finally Magic Kingdom. I'M 53 and I think when I was 7; I would have loved Magic Kingdom. As an adult it was the least enjoyable of the parks to me.
Best shows/3D movies: Mickey's PhilharMagic, Fantasmic! Indiana Jones, Festival of the Lion King, The American Adventure, Country Bears Jamboree, Carousel of Progress, It's Tough to be a bug. Honorable mention: The Muppets 3D, Little Mermaid.
The worst attractions are Tiki Room Under New Management, Stitch's Great Escape, the Backlot Tour, and Sounds Dangerous.
Everything else in the parks is probably of interest to the average person, depending on taste. In other words, check them out at least once, to see if you like 'em.
