    20,000 Leagues was one of my favorites as a kid.

    Alien Encounter, because it was just awesome. Also, I enjoyed Jeffrey Jones' part as the CEO of XS.

    Man, I thought 20K was going to do a lot better than it did. I loved how its presence in Fantasyland kept the land from being an utter kid's area like it became afterwards.
    Maybe it's been closed so long more people simply remember Imagination.

    I loved 20k, but I'd prefer Dreamfinder and Figgy restored to their former glory!

    There wasn't a choice for most of the above...

    Truth is I never cared much for Alien Encounter.

    I adored the others though. I voted for Figment because I still consider it one of my all time favorite experiences. It's been years since I've been on it(obviously) but I still remember things about it. And with it came a much more amazing Image Works.

    20K is one I remember liking, but truthfully I don't remember much about it. I was fairly young the last time I went on it. But I do remember thinking that it was awesome that we were in a real submarine!

    World of Motion I did enjoy, but I really dig Test Track so I'm not crushed that it is gone.

    Horizons on the other hand should never have gone anywhere. I read somewhere someone called it a sequel to The Carousel of Progress and I tend to agree with that. And I won't even bring up the thing that replaced it...

    Great thread.

    Mine too, as the others had not been built yet. But of all of them I'd take Horizons.

    If 20K was around between 1994 and 2001 -I am we walked past it but Ive never been on it. Any videos (albiet likely impossible) around?

    Not part of the choices but I want the old spaceship earth narrator back but keep the updated scenes.

    As for Horizons and WOM, it is no way they would have lasted in 2013 but I would vote for them.

    Journey Into Imagination. The current version, Journey Into Imagination with Figment is absolutely horrible! Dr. Nigel Channing is annoying and The Imagination Institute is boring and unimaginative! I really wish Disney would bring back the original with modern technology!

    I voted for Journey since it was my favorite ride growing up though 20K is a close 2nd since I also had fond memories of this ride as a child.

    I never liked Journey Into Imagination (Figment annoyed me), I don't know what Horizons was (though I am curious about it), and I voted for 20,000 Leagues just because I heard how great it was. And I was always was so curious about it. I do miss Mr. Toads, Body Wars and I will miss Snow White Adventures.

    It was close for me but Alien Encounter nosed out Journey into Imagination just slightly. I'm a huge Figment fan and would like to see either the original Journey into Imagination back, or a good overhaul of the attraction while still keeping Figment. I chose Alien Encounter because I feel it offered a truly unique experience to WDW. It was actually scary and I think it fit in great with TL.

    Love everything on the list, but it's Alien Encounter. And it's not close.

    Alien Encounter. I've never been on it and I've always wanted to check it out before it closed down.

    Alien Acounter was a hoot and a half. Our whole family loved it, but you did need a good grasp on reality when the chamber holding the alien breaks and you are in absolute darkness, there is shouting, foot steps are heard running around, then something is chewing on bones right behind you and you are squirted with some fluid. Also the puns that flew by in the waiting area were hilarious.

    Too bad so many people thought it was not Disney appropriate as it was too scary for their children. Probably for them as well. Stitch's Great Escape is a mere shadow of Alien Encounter.

    Alien Encounter was one of the best attractions at MK. I was very disappointing when I learned it was gone. Imagination and Horizons were also big losses. World of Motion and 20K ... I could do without those attractions.
