TTA is my favorite ride! It's nice and relaxing with never any lines. :)

Please stop telling people about the TTA or the line will grow (j/k lol) My hubby and I love going on it cause you get to see MK from a totally different and relaxing perspective. It holds a lot of great photo opportunities.

Definitely TTA and CoP! At Epcot, my friends and I like the hedge maze in the UK. As long as there isn't a crowd waiting for a show, it's just a whole mess of bring-your-own-fun.

The Oasis at the Animal Kingdom. So many people just run through here to get in line for a FastPass at EE or Dinosaur. We always take a mid-day break to get a drink and/ or ice cream and take a leisurely stroll through the Oasis to see the animals and the incredible theming.

What what what?! There's a hedge maze at the UK pavilion?

Wow, I never knew this. I found a video of some kid running through it. It's not a tall hedge maze. Bummer. :(

If it was big you would have seen it! They are keeping it small so YOU don't find it.

I love all these posts about TTA. While I have a ton of memories of my daughters at WDW, some of my best pictures are of them on the TTA taking in the sights!!

I would say TTA i just wish it was longer or actually took you to another station .

We always ride it to relax and I love looking out over the crowds.

COP is always a fav too!

Yeah, it is tiny. Admittedly, our enjoyment of it increases exponentially compared to how long we spend at the Rose and Crown, but it's still a bit of little known fun.

Probably TTA. I went on it when I was there in 2006 and really enjoyed the ride. It offers some great views of the park including that of Buzz Lightyear and Space Mountain.

Storybookland seems to be looked over a lot. This little boat ride thrills me.

Does the sound room count @ Disney MGM?

It's the one where you are waiting to meet your new boss and Donald comes in and cuts your hair. I think they call it 3D sound. :donald:
I thought that was to one with Drew Carey not Donald. You know the one where Drew Carey is the security guard and he goes under cover to spy on a suspect, his camera goes out and you just hear everything going on.
The Drew Carey sound room has to be the most annoying and pointless ride in the whole of WDW - but that's another topic :roll:

I would say that overlooked rides would have to be:

MK - Splash Mountain, Mickey's Philharmagic
Epcot - just the general shows around world showcase
AK - the walk-through animal areas such as Maharajah Jungle Trek and Rafiki's Planet Watch area

TTA is my favorite overlooked ride... when we're dead tired and want a break, we always head over to it
