What is your favorite queue in each park?

Post by Debbiedeb » Jul Fri 23, 2010 12:58 pm

So many to choose from:
MK = Pirates of the Caribbean,something about walking into the cave.
AK = Expedition Everest, love the authenticity.
Epcot = Mexico, because of the inside street market, love the atmosphere
DS = Twilight Tower of Terror...I'm a big band buff and love that time era. :mickey3:

My favorite queue is one I don't have to wait in at all.

I can think of the one I like the least - Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye at DLR's MK. The queue starts in Adventureland, but as there was no space in Adventureland for the attraction, you walk and walk a long queue just to get to the attraction (the building of which lies behind a totally different section of DLR's MK). And once you ride it, you have to walk that long distance back. Great ride, long queue to walk...

Yes! A queue with no wait! :D

As far as Indy goes, I LOVE the theming and interactive points to the queue but I am also claustrophobic so it is one of my least favorite to stand in...that and Space Mountain. (It helps that hubby is usually in a w/c when we go so we can forgo that section of the line because it gets so narrow. When we get to the elevator, of my favorites is there. Because it's the kind of elevator where you enter throough one door but exit through the other side, there is a cautionary message written on the inside of the highly themed elevator "rock walls". "Wall will move". It makes me laugh everytime!)
I liked part of the Rocket Rods queue since it was located in the old circle-vision building and they used the screens to show a movie about transportation and there were old monorail and peoplemover vehicles suspended and painted in bright fluorescent colors. (that was a bit tacky but nice to see the old vehicles being reused somehow)
For both DLR & WDW, I have ALWAYS loved the queue for Muppets!!! The movie posters, props and Muppet Labs doors are hilarious and full of detail (and puns)!

MK: POTC-shady and cool!!
AK: ITTBAB--same reason..
DHS: You know I have never been in the "regular" queue for TOT--always had a FP, so I would have to say Muppetvision--not really a queue, but I guess that's what makes it great--you can mill around (in the shade and cool ;) )
EPCOT: Nemo--hate the actual ride part, but love the queue--theming and shade are great.

And I also agree with MF---anyone that is short is always a good one!!!!

MK: POTC...for the same reasons as everyone else
EP: Nemo (love the beach-to-underwater transition)
AK: Everest (so much theming...so little space)
DHS: ToT is awesome once you get inside the building...but stinks when you are in the outdoor queue in the Florida heat.
