Peerless, you sound just like my DH. I can't stand bird shows but he loves them.

It's hard to overlook anything in MK, jmho. I do love the Carousel of Progress.

I'd say the Animation Gallery in DHS, which is usually ignored, if not overlooked. Also, like Domirino, I like the trails in AK and the animals around the base of the Tree of Life.

oh yes..the TTA..but I think that is growing in popularity amongst the Disney fandom...or should I say the People mover...i find it funny that loyalist still refer to the tta as this.

TTA in magic kingdom is great cos you get to see tomorrowland like you wouldn't normally see it plus it's a nice cool and breezy ride in the florida sun, the mexico ride in epcot (although i think it was a million times better before they added the 3 cabelleros), the great movie ride in mgm (tucked behind the giant hat) my moms favorite & the maharajah jungle trek in animal kingdom cos you get to see alot of wildlife and it's never full of people (it's a nice peaceful stroll away from the crowds) :mickey:

Your right, this does get overlooked now with Soarin' in place. Also because it could use an update. :wink:

I still liked it better when they had actual CM's running it, rather than the automated version. But yes it is a Overlooked attraction that is rather enjoyable.

I am with you 100% Dr. It really loses a lot of personality (pardon the slight pun) with no one in the car. But I still enjoy it and go at least once hopefully twice each time I go.

I'm pretty sure that The Land is the name of the pavillion. Living With the Land is the name of the boat attraction through the greenhouses.

it's just a pet peeve of mine when people call LWTL "The Land". whether being lazy or ignorant, it doesn't matter. Still grinds my gears...

For some reason, last time I was at MK in Oct. there was a 5 min line for TTA!!! I have never in 28 years ever had to wait there!!!
