    Whats is your favorite ride at Disney World

    Wow, that's soooo hard to answer!  But I've had my coffee, and I'm up for a challenge this morning, so here goes...

    To provide a little more info, I'll share with you my top attractions per park, in reverse overall order.  I'll also try to share a few reasons for my choice.  Please keep in mind that there are so many runners-up in each park, but you asked for a "favorite", so I at least have to try to respond to your exact question...

    #4: Magic Kingdom:  Space Mountain.  A very unique ride that impressively tricks your senses at every turn, and has one of the most beautiful Hidden Mickeys I've found (a profile Mickey within the clouds of planet Earth on the roof of the ride).  I've also been on the ride in Disneyland, and can't wait for the ride to be upgraded.  Despite its age, I think this ride has a long future.  [Note: this was the hardest park for me to pick a favorite - there are so many great themed attractions]

    #3: Animal Kingdom:  Expedition Everest.  A great thrill, with simply amazing attention to detail and storyline from start to finish.  Great views from the top as well, if you are lucky enough to sit in the front row.

    #2: Hollywood Studios:  Tower of Terror.  Again, a great storyline and attention to detail.  The first time I saw the special effects in the elevator tower, I was hooked.  Wow!

    #1: Epcot: Soarin'.  The Imagineers really stepped it up several notches with this ride.  It's as close as I'll probably ever get to hang-gliding.  Amazing 4-D effects, and several fun Hidden Mickeys as a bonus.
    ("Honorable Mention" in Epcot:  Turtle Talk with Crush another Imagineering gem!)
