The first time I went on Toy Story Mania, Pirates and Splash Mountain. Fantasmic and wishes were amazing the first time I saw them and the festival of the lion king is amazing and WOW's me everytime.

Nemo wowed me the first (and only) time I saw it - great music and excellent choreography. I can't wait to watch it again.

Most recently it was Toy Story Mania. That was so much fun we went on it again later that day.

Splash Mountain - it's one of my favorites and I think it was one of my first.
Finding Nemo: The Musical - The bright colors and excellent singing, along with the amazing actors and amazing props.

Well, since I first visited as a little kid everything wowed me. I remember being especially impressed with Peter Pan's Flight in the MK, and everything in Future World at EPCOT.

For me it's not so much a ride as main street. Walking down main streets sets the scene for the whole day. I love it!

I agree. MK really is the first place to go at WDW.

My first trip to Disneyland was when I was four. I still remember the Chicken of the Sea Tuna Boat. :P

Splash Mountain. I rode it during the previews before it opened full time in Orlanda and was blown away. I had never before been on something that had story elements and thrills!

That's one of the things that I love so much about Disney. They tie great rides in with great stories. They really do this better than anyone else.

I would say that the Festival of the Lion King was a wow show for me and still is!

For rides, Tower of Terror was a wow and so was Toy Story Mania - excellent theming & really fun rides.

Everything. I'm still in awe of everything when I walk through those magical gates. It never gets old. I do remember loving the Main Street Electrical Parade when I was a kid. I had the soundtrack. I listened to that thing over and over and over again.
