flights of wonder...i skipped it my first visit...and second visit...but decided why not on the third and was so amazed..awesome show...very funny!

comment on Malestrom and slave er stave church....everytime we ride Malestrom its funny how at the end everyone files through the theater and out to avoid the movie. The Stave Church was rather dissapointing when they changed the history of the church just to reflect the life of a viking...although i love the map of the viking travel.

TTA and COP are two of my favorite attractions all around. I love the Tiki Room, too, so throw that in there.

I agree, TTA is too short. It needs to be extended over the "autopia" track like Disneyland's, and around the other side of the CoP. :D

TTA is definetly overlooked but an amazing attraction and a good way to get some time off your feet without having to wait ages in line.

at MK I think All of toontown is overlooked, its really fun there and you get to see a lot of characters!
at epcot I havent had a wait on the Mexico ride ever! and no wait for journey into imagination with figment, so i would say people over look those as well.
At DHS people overlook the honey i shrunk the playground, or whatever its called, you can always get soem great pics there.
At AK i tihnk the two exploration trails in asia and africa are overlooked.

I totally agree!!! The Land is one of our family's absolute favorite ride! The last time we were at the World, we rode it about 5 times. We always seem to find something different to focus on during each ride.

Other than The Land, the other overlooked attraction is Flights of Wonder. For me, it is a must-see at AK, but I have never had a problem getting in - actually, I have gotten in late a few times because the place was so empty. The show is hilarious and always different. The last time I saw the show, the parrot refused to sing and both of the castmembers/actors played along with the situation quite well. Very funny! :lol:

maybe some people wouldn't consider this one overlooked...

but my answer is mickey's philharmagic. it's always the first ride/attraction we visit at wdw on our trips. i think it's a great experience.

however, no matter how often i tell people to be on the look out for it, people i know who aren't disney savvy always come home and say "what? no, we didn't go to that. i didn't see it".

i dunno if it's cuz it's kind of tucked away, or looks too much like a store from the outside or what.

It doesn't sound like TTA is overlooked at all according to everyone here. I love it too. If you were in Tokyo Disney, you would be able to ride PotC as often as you wanted. Never a line at the ride the 3 times we've been. I've never been able to say that at WDW... :roll:

There's a few attractions I like that I'd probably count as often overlooked, going on their queue - or lack thereof.

Epcot: Journey into Imagination and the ride over at Mexico. I've never had to queue for either of these rides. The Mexico ride is hidden way at the back of the pavilion, which may have something to do with why people tend to overlook it..

MK: TTA and CoP These have usually been walk-on when I've been. The longest I've waited for CoP is the time it takes to rotate if I just missed a show.

Disneyland Paris: Although not an attraction per se, I'm going to go with the animatronic Dragon under the castle(Pictures: one, two, three) - it's only briefly mentioned on the park maps as part of the castle's entry, and there's not usually many people down there to get in the way (it's a walk through).

Yeah but if you calculate it, number of guests in a day divided by the number of Disney fans that enjoy the TTA, the numbers are pretty low. I'm actually glad that they are, makes it easier for all of us to ride!

I would have to agree that The Carousel of Progress is often overlooked. We also go on this ride first and last with each trip. It is our 7 year old daughter's favorite attraction
