What’s Better Than The GMR?
In case you missed it, the voices of the Dillo siblings were heard for the first time ever on ‘The Improviser’s Guide Podcast’ saluting The Great Movie Ride (which is closing 8/13/17).
I’m taking myself to task for stating towards the end of this episode that GMR (maybe) cracks the Top 20 WDW Dillo’s Favorite Attractions. I didn’t think before I said it and it made me wonder what Attractions are ahead of it.
Here within, that list, with a few qualifiers:
A) this is All Time, childhood to ::coughs:: forty something
B) this is all inclusive, meaning water parks too
C) this is always subject to change and is in no particular order
1-3: The Triple Mountain Whammy (Splash, Space, & Thunder)
5: The Original Journey Into Imagination
7: Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
8: Summit Plummet
9: Tower of Terror
10: Muppetvision 3, nay, 4D
11: Star Tours
12: WDW Monorail
13: WDW Railroad
14: Spaceship Earth
15: Tomorrowland Speedway
16: Peter Pan’s Flight
17: Pirates of the Caribbean
18: It’s a Small World
19: Carousel of Progress
Listing only 19 as GMR would make 20. Please take a moment to flip out over my not listing Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Soarin’, Test Track, or anything in Animal Kingdom.
If I was to try to put these Attractions in order, it’s likely The Great Movie Ride is in the mid-teens. However, if it held up the high standard that was so present in those first 5-7 years of opening, it may very well have cracked the Top 10.
