What Do You Think Is Disney's Most Popular Attraction?

A simple question from my hubby - What Do You Think Is Disney's Most Popular Attraction?

I'm going to guess Soarin'. Though strangely I think Peter Pan's Flight is close. I don't even get how those two can be in the same category but to each their own I guess!

If I went by the length of line I would pick Peter Pan, Toy Story or Soarin.

Toy Story Midway Mania is my choice for most popular, with Soarin a close second.

Isn't the Mine Cart ride as long or am I missing something with Peter Pan...? Agree with Toy Story and Soarin' and occasionally Test Track. I daresay the longest queue soon will be the former Maelstrom ride....

I think it could be Peter Pan, I mean that blooming ride has the longest queue even at midnight!

I agree, although Ken, MrHub, scrappy and I got through the interactive queue last week in about 15 min. Of course, it was raining and dark, but we were very happy!

That's awesome! I really want to see the interactive queue but I just will NOT wait in that line!

The length of the queue also has to do with the ride's capacity and load speed. The newest rides are always the most popular, but after the novelty wears off...I vote PoC based on it's an all ages ride, no motion sickness involved, multiple movies, Johnny Depp, etc.

We did it once. It wasn't worth the long wait. It was very cute, but the line at the point it's at moves faster than the time it takes to really interact with it.

No. This is my biggest head scratcher in all of Disney World. It's cute but I don't think any more cute than the Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo. Plus the squeak and screech of the track above you is very noticeable as are all the wooden staircases and emergency exits. In the past we would get on it during Wishes when the line is lower or if we had an extra fast pass. I like it, but it's not a must-do while we're there.

Peter Pan's Flight is one of the lowest capacity, slowest loading rides at WDW. Riders per hour = 720

HM= 2,880 PoC = 2,880 7DMT =1,485

I've been on it once.

cute - yes
do it again - no
needs and update - yes

Tink ASL is right, you see a lot it kind of distracted me.

I have to vote for Soarin and of course if you count meet and greet... Anna and Elsa. laugh

This at least explains why the line is so slow. I still don't understand though why people are willing to wait so long in this slow line when the ride isn't THAT great.

I'll only ride, when I can jump on. But I love it.

I'm going to answer this without checking other people's responses first.

Soarin'. That's my guess.

My personal favorite is Toy Story Mania.

I love Peter Pan's Flight--it's one of our favorites for sure, but I don't wait 60 minutes for anything. I'm all about the fast pass here.

I imagine that anything with a height requirement is out of the running for most popular. Since that knocks out Soarin', I'm going to go with TSM.

I think it is "It's a small world". muchlove If you're talking the common first time visitor with no knowledge of Fast-pass and what rides you should fast-pass and have lengthy lines, I'd say everyone who comes to the parks rides on this ride.. I'm not saying it is the most popular amongst the veterans, but of the everyday park visitor this ride would have to be near the top.

For my family, the most popular ride is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad", with Test Track as a close 2nd..

I think Toy Story Mania might be the most popular. But the Tower of Terror is my favorite.

Well, I'd say based on wait times and how fast the FP+ reservations fill up, I think these are Fab Five attractions:

In no particular order:
7DMT
Peter Pan's Flight
Soarin'
Toy Story Mania
Anna and Elsa meet and greet

At Disneyland the most popular are Haunted Mansion at Halloween because of Nightmare Before Christmas, Peter Pan, and Pirates.
California Adventure is Soarin Over California, Toy Story Mania, and biggest attraction with fastpasses gone 2 hours after the park opens is Radiator Racers.
