Every Sunday our writers get together and answer a Disney related question. Here is this week’s question and answer, put your answer in the comments!
Question of the Week: What is your favorite Disney attraction that’s on water? You don’t have to necessarily get soaked on it as long as the ride is a ‘boat’.
Melissa L. – My favorite is the Kali River Rapids in Animal Kingdom. When I think of rides that involve water, I always think of these rapid rides. Now I don’t enjoy getting wet in rides, but I will make exemptions for this one! The thrill of never knowing who in your boat will be the most unlucky is always a blast. I also never leave this ride upset, but rather laughing my head off because of how much fun it is!
Kelsee – I agree, Melissa! I love the rapid rafting-Esque rides like Grizzly River Run and Kali River Rapids. Between the two, I guess I’ll pick Grizzly River Run because I love the Grizzly mountain behind it, and I love the feeling of being in the Northern California area surrounded by the big Redwood trees. Also, I’ve been to the Disneyland Resort many more times than Disney World, so I have more sentimental memories on that ride with my parents, sisters, and our extended family we have in California.
Andrew – Beating out Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean and Living With the Land for me is Splash Mountain (I prefer the Disneyland version). I think it’s close to the perfect attraction. There are some amazing show scenes and extremely catchy song. There’s a succinct, well-told story. There are thrills and a relaxing boat ride all in one. I don’t think it can get much better than this.
Melissa H. – My favorite would probably have to be Disneyland’s version of Splash Mountain. I love that I can go on a thrill ride that offers me the opportunity to actually have a chance to sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery (both inside and outside of the attraction). The view from Splash is fantastic, both during day and night! It’s probably one of my favorite rides in the entire park. Pirates is definitely a close second though.
What’s your favorite attraction that’s on water in Disney? Let us know in the comments! A recap of the week is after the jump.
On Tuesday, Andrew wrote a review of La Hacienda de San Angel which is one of two Mexican restaurants in Epcot. Wednesday was Earth Day so Melissa H. gave some great ideas on how to reuse some of those ‘old’ Disney souvenirs. Kelsee shared a review of Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular (which is in California Adventure) on Friday.
