Expedition Everest, and all of Animal Kingdom for that matter, is exceptionally beautiful at night. Even Dino-Rama doesn't seem quite as wretched once darkness falls and everything is lit up.

Ditto. AKA everything at Animal Kingdom. This past trip, I spent an hour exploring the Tree of Life in the dark, with the nets. And it was one of the highlights of my trip.

Everybody says Jungle Cruise. I went once during EMH at about 12:15. We got a guy, Milton, who was clearly beyond hammered. It was horrible. He would say "that's my house" at every other scene. He needed a woman to help him off the boat afterwards.

Just for clarification Matt, was Milton a skipper or a guest?

I was wondering that myself.........

Milton, not Wilson. Wilson was a volleyball.

My favorites are Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Astro Orbiter, Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover, Tower of Terror, Expedition Everest and Jungle Cruise.

Tower of Terror, Definitely!
Big Thunder
Haunted Mansion -- not so much 'cause it changes the ride any, but the atmosphere leading up to it is that much more creepy.
