Rides that change the most from being a kid to being an adult/Hall of Presidents

So I decided to kind of make this a two in one post. I know some parts of Disney kind of change for you in from being a kid to being an adult (and in the case of Epcot, sometimes an entire park). But I don't think any ride is more true of this than The Hall of Presidents. I remember my parents took me and my brother on this when were little, and we claimed to borred out of minds thining this was the worse ride ever and how could a thing like this even exist at Disney. It scared my thoughts on the attraction for years. For a few years now I have wanted to give it another chance, but it wasn't till about a year or two that I decided to take time away from the normal attractions to do so, and I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it. First off, Morgan Freeman is such a great narator. And the tributes in film are a great inspirational history lesson. But to see all the American presidents in one setting, even if they are animatronic, is really an amazing feet. It gives me a bit national pride everytime. I am curious what type of feelings does it give you? And are there any other rides that have changed for you as you have grown up?

When I was a kid I loved the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.

now it bores me silly, but I do it for my kids.

It is funny how we all see things differently. I never went to Disney as a young child. I was 21 my first trip. I still remember the first time I went through the Swiss Family Robinson tree house. I was amazed at the detail. I wanted to see it all. I still enjoy walking through it although we do not do it every trip.

I think that sums it up nicely. That was a great movie, but I don't think too many kids who visit Disney have seen it. Surprised (be it pleasently) that Disney hasn't decided to remake that one.

As a kid I was fascinated by the Disneyland "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" - still am, and with Hall of Presidents. Small World get my vote for biggest change as I aged. I Loved that ride as a kid. Now, although I still ride it, I sort of feel like I am watching - and listening to - a train wreck. Can't not do this, but oh, the ear worm it gives me!! wink
