Best of the Best - FINALS: Pirates of the Caribbean v Fantasmic!

So I thought it might be fun to find out the best and most beloved attraction in Disneyland. I'll pit two attractions and you vote for which one should move on to the next round. You can justify it for any reason you want. Try to sway those who have voted with your reasoning. The attractions will be randomly chosen. Just think, if both attractions were hanging off a ledge, which one would you put all your strength in saving?

Fantasmic!

Mickey's active imagination sets the stage for this musical, pyrotechnic spectacular where the forces of good and evil battle in his dreams! Marvel at the stunning effects that erupt against the broad night sky as beloved Disney Characters join the reverie.

This is like asking whether you prefer your heart ventricles or atriums. You may be forced to choose, but you'll die either way.

I chose Fantasmic because after all these years, it still fills me with emotion. I love POTC, but the experience of Fantasmic lasts longer - both during the show and the effects that it carries in me afterwards.

I couldn't choose so I asked the decisive member of the family- 11 yr old son.
He said POTC all the way because Fantasmic is just too loud to really enjoy.

I also had to vote for Fantasmic, but I'm sure POTC will win. Both are among my favorites, POTC is more nostalgia than great ride. I love it but its one of many rides I love. There aren't as many shows as there are rides, and Fantasmic is by fac the best show in both parks. Fantasmic has everything...great music, effects, story and features characters from many movies. It says Disney magic more than just about anything else in the park.

can't believe F! beat Indiana jones. I like F! but there are a ton of rides I would rather do than watch F! every time I watch F! I can't wait for it to be over because my feet hurt and I'm tired from the day. wish they had seats that didn't cost an arm and a leg to get. and I don't even like much of what they give for the desert package. just not worth it to me. rides over shows all day for me. and POC has always been my Fav so this isn't even a choice for me.

There are plenty of places to sit, and easy to get to if you go to the 2nd show.

This was a great and fun voting thread you did...thanks. I'd like to see something similar to determine thr favorite Disney movie of all time. You don't have to do it, but if someone who had more time than me could do it, that would be great.

Maybe the list can include all the classics, including the new "classics", plus any movie that has a ride and/or characters featured in the parks.

Not surprising. Everything else at Disney is awesome. But Pirates is definitely iconic, and the one thing that I absolutely never miss when visiting Disneyland.

I was thinking of doing something similar for DCA, but Disney Animated movies is a grand idea.

However, when these threads start in the community section or are quickly moved there, they don't get many votes. =\ its a bit discouraging

A DCA one would be really fun! Mad T Party should've been part of DCA of course, but no biggie. I really liked how you limited voting to 24 hours too, that made things go by really quickly.

Maybe if you changed the name. That section is for vacation planning, so maybe if you titled it something like "what ride is a must" or "what not to miss" or something they will let it stay.

Mad Tea Party is the actual name of the teacups ride.

True, and Mad T Party ("T" not "Tea") is the name of the dance party--or whatever one would call it--in the Hollywood Land section of DCA.
