Its a small world seems very overlooked! The line is never long, and its historical because it was one of Walts original ideas! People need to know that its O.K. to come from different backgrounds and that people can still get along! Some people say that the ride is outdated, but to me, its a classic that represents all that is good at Disney!!! A SMILE MEANS FRIENDSHIP TO EVERYONE!

Plenty of TTA responses here (and I agree). I beginning to wonder if it can be considered "overlooked"....

Can't remember the name of it, but the movie in France. And not so much b/c I like it but it's one of the only things my girlfriend likes! She's not a huge Disney fan but she's been to France a couple of times and loves that movie. It made me happy that there was something she enjoyed in Disney World.

I would say CoP, there's never a line for this one! It's one of my most favorites, this was one of Walt's creations, I just love it!

Absolutely... great attractions! :D

I agree with TTA. This is always an excuse for me to sit down, relax, and get away from the crowds while still feeling I am on a ride.

after my last trip, i now realize that the videos in the world showcase are not overlooked. Canada's was funny, but France and CHina both put me to sleep. A real hidden jem is teh animation academy at Hollywood Studios. It was very fun, hands on, and air conditioned! We loved it so much we went twice and drew Minnie and Daisy. I have no artistic ability and made very nice drawings.

One Man's Dream was GREAT! Although, I did it at the end of the day so I didn't watch the movie, which I regret now. Also, I think the street performances are often overlooked/rushed past. I really enjoyed a couple I saw at DHS.

I think I have to add a few to my list after my trip. TTA still is up there on top since you get an amazing view of the SpectroMagic parade if you time it right. Also that Star Tunnel music.... brings a tear to the eye thinking about it. The next one was the Jungle Cruise. It never had a line, and the ride is different with each skipper as they add their own jokes. Journey Into Immagination with Figment. This was sad as we had a whole ride vehicle to ourselves. IASW is overlooked also even though that song is stuck in my head for three weeks following my visit.

My top 5:

1) Carousel of Progress
2) One Man's Dream
3) Flights of Wonder bird show (at AK)
4) Tomorrowland Transit Authority
5) Do the Streets of America count? I never see many people wandering around there, but I could stay there for hours just soaking in all the detail.

I believe I would have to vote for Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and Carousel of Progress.

i realy must say i am still surprised when I see swissfamily robinson treeshouse and the magic carpets...the carpets I only go on if it have already gone on EVERY ride in tthe park, and with all the walking I do for the trip, the last thing I want to do is walk up and down stairs and look at empty roms...just my 2 cents. I really feel the space, which is huge, can be used for something more entertaining.
