I don't remember the last time I skipped it, to be quite honest. I skip a lot of other lands like Adventureland (not counting me going through it to escape traffic), Toontown and Fantasyland.

I really like New Orleans Square, could spend most of my day there, love the background music & just sitting at the French Market watching the ppl. But, I think the next time we go, I will spend quite a bit of time in Adventureland visiting Tiki Room & Jungle Cruise. These were my grandmother's favorite attractions & land, so as a tribute to her, that's where you will probably find me..

Don't forget the ever shrinking Frontierland, Big Thunder is one of my favorites. Pirates is always fun, and Mickey Pancakes are a treat no matter how old you are.

How can I be the ONLY vote for Fantasyland??? Pinnochio, Alice, Casey Jr, Storybook Boats, HUGE outdoors Small World, Matterhorn, Mr. Toad??? Not even a contest for this WDW native.

I would go there if I'm with my friends. I don't think I can deal with waiting about 45 minutes for Peter Pan much anymore.

I couldn't agree more. We always enjoy a slow stroll through New Orleans Square at night after a ride on POTC when it isn't very crowded.

The west side of the park late at night is always the best. Sometimes I will walk or even find a place to sit along Big thunder trail after the last fantasmic to watch the people go by.

I do love wandering around the west side of the park at night but most of the time it can be hard to avoid the traffic jams from Fantasmic.

Tomorrowland, at any age for me. Loved it as a kid with the short-lived Flying Saucers and the McDonald Douglas Rocket, loved the remodel with the Peoplemover and COP in the 60's, then Space Mountain, Skyway Ride, Autopia, Submarine...too many memories, all good. Always liked the attempts to look "futuristic."

You got to ride the Flying Saucers?! Cool! Have you had a change to try out the Luigi's Flying Tires attraction at DCA yet? That looks like it would be similar to the old Flying Saucer's attraction...

Haven't been on it yet but as soon as the Summer crowds are gone, I'm there. The minute I saw the pictures, well, in my mind, I was on 'em! :lol: They look as though they'll operate much the same but I'm sure with the newer technology available, they'll be better. The saucers were always a bit iffy about being open at all, lots of glitches, but when they were going, they were fun!

I've watched a few videos on youtube and they look ok, but not fantastic. Looks like they move pretty slowly...

I love Adventureland and New Orleans Square... I've always been a classic Enchanted Tiki Room fan!

I know, I watched some of those, too. Maybe new technology can't do much for an attraction like that; but if they can keep it operating consistently, it could still be fun since it was excellent to lean one way and ram into another rider. No one got much of a jolt, but it would send you both bouncing off in the opposite direction, so a lot of laughs. So with these new versions, I do want to go on them, but I wouldn't wait in a super long line.

I would definitely want to try them. But, yeah, I don't think I would wait in a very long queue to do so...
