    This is a serious question! I think that it's hard to judge what you WOULDN'T go on. I think it's good to experience everything at least once! However, if you want MY opinion...I absolutely HATE the Peter Pan ride at MK. You wait at least an hour (minimum) to get on the ride, and then you are only on the ride for a total of 90 seconds.

    PS> The film in Norway is AWESOME! Everyone skips it but I think it's worth watching. Filmed in the 70's and completely comedic with how bad it was filmed. HOWEVER, the scenery that they film in the country is really beautiful and it makes ME think of visiting the Scandanavian region one day. And it's really NOT that long. Plus, you get to be in the air-conditioned shade for a few more minutes. Worse comes to worst, you can just push through the Exit doors. The other 3 people in the theater won't mind...

    Do them all!!

    Why avoid some rides when you have time to do all of them?

    Though me and the mrs do tend to run around like kids who've had too many e-numbers! :mental:

    Flying Carpets in Adventureland made me feel sick.

    However, it was Steven's favourite ride and he rode it 5 times in a row. (with daddy):point:

    The Maelstrom is something I've never enjoyed :unsure:

    Mission:Space is something I might not do again. I didn't know what to expect so I was fine but when I got off and thought how constrained you were and my mind wondered to how I'd react if I got stuck on it... I don't think I could handle it again! I never avoid any rides but the orange Mission:Space makes me think twice, now.

    Typically, much of the line length is not a ride, pin adventure, and a large cup. I usually do not, unless the RNR is my wish that someone disturb my neck.

    I would not do Primeval hurl again.

    And, now don't cry, but I am totally afraid of Space Mountain. The one and only time I rode it, I think I drove all the other riders nuts with my screams.

    And I don't need to do Stitch again :nono:

    I am sure there are a few others but I cannot remember them at the moment

    haha, that's funny.
    But really, when we were there in January (not a good month to go :thumbsdown:), it burned. No, we didn't set fire to it. The good thing about the Tiki Birds today is that they have turned the time back and it's now in it's original form, errrrr....I think

    Stitch IMHO is a big waste of time. And yes the Tiki Birds are back to the original. So much better.
