what is your favorite land in the park?

Post by LaughinPlace » Sep Sun 11, 2005 9:05 pm

my favorite is main street. it's the same as walt had wanted it then, and hasn't changed. it's where i feel the magic the most. i spend most of my day there and new orleans square in the disney gallery or on the haunted mansion.

I like New Orleans Square. Mostly because of the attractions, but the atmosphere is great. Blue Bayou is one of my favorite restaurants and the Disney Gallery is great to browse through.

Oooh. Adventureland is my favorite land. I love the ambience while walking through- it really feels like you've traveled back in time and are somewhere across the globe.

I voted for Tomorrowland. But Tomorrowland sucks now. So my vote is for the older one! I don't know if that really counts but deal with it! :)

i'd have to agree with you on the tomorrowland one. they should take out the astro orbitors and put in the peoplemover, i don't care if it's the "symbol" of tomorrowland (that would probably be space mountain but w/e) it would be like the coolest thing ever if they brought back the peoplemover. and the old peoplemover not a new one, the one with the tron gamegrid, and the superspeed tunnel, and listening to c-3po and space mountain. i never got to go on it, but i've memorized the soundtrack to it. :D so i would have to agree with you on that note.

I would have definitely voted for Tomorrowland many years ago. I loved the Submarine Voyage and especially the Peoplemover! I don't know why I liked it so much; it's not fast or totally immersive- it's just cool.

oh of course, the submarine voyage was my favorite ride when it was open. i was a young one, but that's what made it better, i didn't realize that there were strings hanging from all the fish...but i definitely remember the sea serpent :D that thing was so funny looking. and somehow i'm thinking that this nemo ride now isn't gonna be so great. (anybody find it a coincidence that the captain's name was captain nemo in 20,000 leagues and now they're making a ride about finding nemo?) it's these things that make you go hmmmmmmm......but yea that ride was great but i think that they're starting to make rides more for kids and not for adults, ex; buzz lightyear, winnie the pooh and now this. don't get me wrong i still think there are numerous amounts of rides for kids and adults to ride, but i think that they should make them for everyone, and not more for kids. i was going to say something else but i forgot what it was... :( :?

I guess I am like the many others who loves Tomorrowland, mainly for the design.

The kid in me could stay in Fantasyland all day just going around and around through Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, the Storybook Canals, on Casey Jr. , etc. I think that that is the Disneyland that Walt wanted kids to remember and to keep in their dreams.

It's small, for sure, but New Orleans Square is packed with two of the best rides in the park, a handful of great shops, the one real sit-down, table-service restaurant in the park, its own train station, and one of the park's just three smoking sections... important for smokers like me who aren't about to break the rules and go smoking willy-nilly wherever I like. I hate those people.

Anyway, yeah, NOS all the way!

Aww Fantasyland, the land I live in.... in my head that is :D
With all the "reality shows" out there I am glad there is not a RealityLand, cause that would stink! :wink:
I don't care how old I get, I will ride Alice, Peter Pan, Snow White, Pinocchio, the Carousel horses, until they change them or remove them, then at that point I will picket outside the gates :P I will go with Fantasyland as my fav.
I just hope these rides will remain sacred forever!
It was a close call between Fantasyland and New Orleans Square.........and Adventureland and.................Oh, don't make me chose it's too stressful......ha ha ha

I enjoy Tomorrowland the most, for the design. I like it because it's a vision of the future from the 70's ... :mrgreen: And it's funny to see how the past considered the future, if you know what I mean. :roll: But Adventureland would be my second choice.

Critter Country. It's relaxing, and fun to be in when I'm there. I like that atmosphere best, it seems the slowest paced of the lands, making it my favorite.

NOS is my favorite. It's because of the atmosphere around there. I love the eerie look and feel of the area.
I do have to say that I want the Skyway to come back though. I love them, you can see over everything. I was on them only once in my life (1989-first time there, second time on july 17, 2005, next time is Feb this year).
