It's like if Disney had bulldozed Yosemite Lodge and built a Starbucks. Under normal circumstances, I enjoy Starbucks. But I'd despise that particular Starbucks until the end of time. :D

Or if they put in a Starbucks express with a limited menu and only one cup size.

While elsewhere, there are fully fledged Starbucks available with three drink sizes, a variety of pastries, and a variety of drink options. And 50 feet away there's a 5 star fine dining restaurant that offers a longer, more fulfilling experience for all ages- and since ticket books are no more, costs the same to get on.

  1. Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin - Phenomenal darkride with fun ride system and amazing queue.
  2. Alice in Wonderland - I love how this isn't a flat ride and the ride vehicle is constantly changing levels. The updated effects are amazing.
  3. Mr Toad's Wild Ride - A beloved classic for a reason. The sets are fairly simply, but the ride experience is a lot of fun.
  4. Pinocchio's Daring Journey - Not as iconic, but a wonderful spooky dark ride which embraces the creepy carnival atmosphere of the film and puts us front and center into the story.
  5. Snow White's Scary Adventures - A wonderful scare ride with an ending which is slightly too abrupt.
  6. Peter Pan's Flight - A wonderful first half with an incredibly rushed and bland back half. Love flying over London, but its all downhill once we descend into Neverland.
  7. Pooh - Its not as bad as people make it out to be, just kind of barren and bare minimum storytelling. The Hephelumps and Woozles scene is so open and empty.

I like the slapped-together quality of many of these rides. The abrupt turns into the exit at the end of Snow White and Peter Pan makes it feel like they ran out of room. The effects are mostly very crude, such as the oncoming train that is a light on the wall. These rides and the atmosphere of Fantasyland midway area generate the most classic Disney Land feelings for me.

Speaking of Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin they should have included a Judge Doom AA. Speaking of Judge Doom, I just bought this Funko POP on eBay. Say what you want about Funko POPs but where else can I get a figure of Judge Doom holding the poor shoe that he dips? He’s even in crazy eye toon mode.
