Every Sunday all of our writers get together and answer a Disney related question. Here’s this week’s question and responses:
Question of the Week: What is your favorite mountain at Disneyland or Disney World? It can be a classic mountain or one of the newer ones (Cadillac Moutain Range, Expedition Everest, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train).
Melissa H. – My favorite mountain, for nostalgic reasons is Matterhorn Mountain in Disneyland. When I was a child I was not a thrill seeker in any way, shape, or form. I was more of a “play it safe” kind of gal. Anyways, this was the first mountain I ever rode on and I loved it. I even ended up getting a Matterhorn T-shirt and a Harry the Abominable Snowman stuffed animal. Plus, a lot of the history behind the Matterhorn is really neat and I don’t think anyone can deny that it looks beautiful from everywhere in the park!
Leslie – Does Grizzly Peak count? Yes I think it counts because I don’t like the other mountains as much. Grizzly Peak houses Grizzly River Run a fun river Rapids ride both cooling you off and giving you a nice view of the mountain. You can even hear the great bear’s roar in the midst of the cave. Prepare to get wet thoughts you get on the ride!
Kelsee – Splash Mountain definitely is my favorite mountain. I always thought I was so brave when I would go on this ride when I was younger (and possibly as an adult too). I love the theming, how long the ride lasts, and the fact that I still get a thrill going on this ride. Plus, the pictures you get from the drop are priceless!
Melissa L. – I love them all, but I think since the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opened, that’s become my new favorite! The seven dwarves themselves have also been some of my favorite characters (grumpy to be specific). I was so excited to ride this the last time we were in Disney World and it did not disappoint! It’s also so beautiful with all the green landscape which really makes it pop!
Andrew – Beating out Expedition Everest and Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is Splash Mountain. As Kelsee said, Splash Mountain has it all – a few thrills, a bit of a dark ride, an interesting history, and a tune that will be stuck in your head all. It also looks great on the outside. It’s an incredible attraction that has and will stand the test of time. For the record, I prefer the Disneyland version of Splash Mountain.
