Favorite Disney coaster?
Based on either thrills, theming, nostalgia or all of the above!
To be short: What is your favorite coaster at any of the Disney parks? Based on either thrills, theming, nostalgia or all of the above.
Mine would have to be Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom. Many people complain about the roughness but it's so fun to me and it was my first roller coaster. It seems much better than the repetitive track at Disneyland, but that's just my opinion. Plus, nothing beats zooming through the stars with crazy sound effects and music all around you.

Space Mountain too Bryce!
Big Thunder for me. It was my first coaster and remains my favorite today! Now I just need to wait for the weather to cool down so I can see the new updates...

Everest when it had a working Yeti, Rock 'n Roller Coaster now.
I don't usually respond to Disney "best ofs" due to the fact that I rarely get there. But I will say that Rock and Roller Coaster is a ride I like a lot, although I wish they'd themed it to another band. I've also got a special place in my heart for Space Mountain, going back to my first visits to Florida in the 1970's.
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster might be my favorite.... I can't decide! :(
I love the launch of rockin rollercoaster but expediton everest is clearly the best
Matterhorn in CA, and Everest in FLA. Like the fact they are one of a kind.
I like Everest at DAK, but without a working Yeti for the past 6 years, I'd have to say Matterhorn (that ride has been open for 53 years and the Yeti STILL works).
Indiana Jones at Disneyland Paris. It was my first coaster with an inversion!

This is tough decision, but I'll say Big Thunder.

Space Mountain has been my favourite rollercoaster since I was 8 years old and despite all the new technology and every new rollercoaster, IT still remains my favourite Coaster in the world today.
Rock n Roller Coaster and a slight themed coaster Montu
Manny, what part of Disney did you NOT understand?

I've only been to the parks in Florida, so far its Everest for me.
Expedition Everest is my favorite with or without the Yeti; enjoy the different aspects of the ride, especially going backwards.
I enjoy Rockin Roller Coaster
Two years ago, I had a chance to ride this again on New Year's Eve and was reminded how just-plain-fun it is with its great start, 2 big drops, a loop and an onboard soundtrack. It was a great time for me.
Big Thunder Mountain, baby!
I think i'd probably have to say Everest :)
Everest is the most thrilling but Space Mountain Magic Kingdom is still a big favorite but a little ruff.

California Screamin', simply because it is the best as a coaster. I think a lot of coaster enthusiasts don't really consider it since it is at a Disney park, but I've been on over 250 coasters and it is in my top 25.
My favorite coasters at the other three Disney parks I've visited are as follows:
Disneyland: Space Mountain. Not the most thrilling ride, but one of the most elaborately themed and immersive coasters.
Disneyland Paris-Disneyland Park: Space Mountain: Mission 2. It's a bit rough, but it is still an intense ride and the theming is top notch, at least as far as coasters go.
Disneyland Paris-Walt Disney Studios Park: Crush's Coaster, but I didn't get a chance to ride Rock 'n' Roller Coaster since it was closed when I visited.
Matterhorn---Call me nostalgic.

I agree AJ, California Screaming seems to be a bit underrated, it's a good coaster!

Tie for Expedition Everest, Space Mountain @DLR and California Screamin for me. Of course all of these are awesome on the last train, but I chose DLR's Space because the on board music works better than the WDW one, the Halloween Overlay is a great change, and the track is tighter or at least seems like it is!
