Mine are:
Tough to be a Bug
Monsters Inc Laugh Floor
Magic Carpets of Aladdin
People mover
Seas with Nemo and Friends
Muppet Vision
Primeval Whirl

Muppet Vision for me. I also always have to go to Horror Makeup show and T2-3D whenever I go to USF.

E.T Adventure.

The ride is so old and outdated, but there's just a retro cool aura to it..

I also love E.T. Another favorite at USO is Kang & Kodos' Twirl & Hurl. Yeah, it's just a simple spinner, but they're my favorite Simpsons characters and I love the irreverent humor.

At WDW I like both the People Mover and Carousel of Progress... they're so relaxing :-).

I forgot about the PeopleMover, thanks Melanie.

Joe actually included the mover in his original list, or I might have forgotten it too :-)

One Fish Two Fish is the best, fun, most enjoyable kids ride around.

ET is also great but I wish it was longer..

SeaWorld in general, everyone hates it so much for Orca captivity, but it is my third favorite theme park franchise

No love for Carousel of Progress?

Hands down the People Mover. So simple, but does the trick.

I too also like One Fish Two Fish. I end up laughing through most of the ride!
