I would also say Horizons. It made me think about the endless possibilities of the future. (I love Future Guy's entry)

I was lucky and got to ride this (if you can call it a ride) when Eisner first experienced it. We were walking by and a Cast Member grabbed us to try it out as they had been talking about it debuting that day. I just remember EVERYONE screaming during it then laughing at each other on the way out. The way the crowd reacted I thought it would be a big hit. My friends and I loved it. It's a shame that they had to tone it down and that Stitch has ultimately condemned it.

I have two:

If we could also bring back the original performers, I would pick the Golden Horseshoe Review. I've heard some great audio, but it would have been so much fun to see it live.

Horizons, because I've heard so much about it, I would have loved to have experienced it.

Which version of timekeeper: the DLP original, or the Robin Williams version? DLP's version was longer. While DLP's version was in French, it did come with those headsets in which you could hear it in different languages including English.

Never got to see timekeeper :(, but I've heard the soundtrack and wish that I could have seen it.

Horizons, or anything from EPCOT. It's some of the few rides I have no memories of.

I watched Horizons last night on YouTube. What an amazing ride. I often listen to it on my iPod when I want a pick-me-up...but watching it again really brings back the magic. It's stunning how much detail and imagination went into that attraction.

Do you know about the MesaVerde Times? Two guys spent a lot of time inside the attraction documenting it's last few months/days...crude language at times but very cool behind the scenes footage...my favorites so far are the "magic paintbrush" that cleans the rollers on top of the ride vehicles and seeing the "orange machine" that provides the orange grove smell...
