Dinosaur was ok, though the ride was changed to reflect the movie. ToT was ok for what it was, a made for tv movie. Pirates is awesome. Country bears and Haunted Mansion both blew. So those are my choices.

A question on that. I know the ride name changed - did anything else? I didn't go on the ride before the change and always wondered what was new.
Drop another coin in slot and I will tell you more.

I think it was the inclusion of the Iguanodon being the main character from the movie. Other than that I dont think they altered too much. But I could be wrong.

I didn't think Haunted Mansion was as bad as everyone said, but The Country Bears was one of the worst movies I've seen in theaters.

I think The haunted mansion movie is more like Phantom Manor With the zombies and the bride being a main caricter :hm_ghost:

I vote for Haunted Mansion. Could have been great. Such a wasted opportunity. Country Bears show I never miss, the film I will never watch again.

I didn't know Mission to Mars and Tower of Terror were movies and I didn't know that Dinosaur was a ride (didn't much care for the movie though). That left Country Bears (which I have never seen and never plan to...it looked ridiculous), Pirates (are you kidding?? One of my favorite movies!), and Haunted Mansion (really bad...). So my vote went to HM. It could have been so good, but it was so not. If I had seen Country Bears (which I never will) I probably would have voted for that.

I cast my vote for Country Bears, as most people have. When I first heard they were doing a Country Bears movie, my family and I were very excited, and were hoping they wouldn't let the attraction go away if the movie did well. But then we saw it... :|

Well, since I've only seen a few of these (Haunted Mansion, Pirates, ToT, Dinosaur), 'Haunted Mansion' gets my vote. The story could have been so much better. I had high hopes for this one and was completely let down. But I did enjoy seeing the hitchhiking ghosts get some screen time! I hear rumors of a 'Jungle Cruise' movie...anyone know if this is true??? :?

Yup! I agree with you....could have been a great movie. I love eddie murphy, but not in disney movies. For some reason it just didnt seem to portray what the ride is or to give you that same feeling the ride gives. Like in the first pirates...when i saw that movie i got the same feeling i do when i go on the ride. Haunted mansion just didnt do it...

Re-thinking this question, I really think what made me choose HM was the fact that HM had so much potential that it ultimately failed to give. Country Bears, not so much: It's a group of singing bears, what else is there?

While I have only seen clips of Country Bears, when you combine the clips with the attraction itself, I can't imagine sitting through a full length feature movie based on the attraction! But, I have to admit that Haunted Mansion wasn't what it could have been.

Okay. I'll take one for the team. Which ride was Dinosaur based on?

Hey gang. While it's safe to say that HM is probably the best example of what NOT to do in making a Disney ride-movie what I'm about to say may get me killed. I'm probably the only person who didn't as big of kick out of PotC as everybody else did/has. While I did think the story was a well though out one, (unlike HM), and both Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush are great actors I guess I just couldn't shake the feeling that the movie as a whole was trying to bury the rides history and taking shots at just how silly some of the rides scenes actually are. All this does is prove that Disney is essentially 'kid's stuff', ya know. I don't know, maybe it's me. Oh well, until later, peace.

Countdown to Extinction at Animal Kingdom. Since that movie came out, the changed the name of the attraction to Dinosaur!.
