      I am outraged that anybody would even go to Universal let alone vote for one of their so-called attractions.

        Re: Disney vs. Universal head to head competition

        1. Splash Mountain vs. Dudlye Doo Righs Ripsaw Falls
        Ok for me Splash Mountain wins, even if Ripsaw is a lot more exciting. Personally hearing Zippidy Doo Dah can make your day/week/month

        2. Philharmagic vs. Shrek 4D
        Philharmagic ALL THE WAY! You can't help but sing along and try to help Donald!

        3. Buzz Light Year (or Toy Story Mania) vs. Men In Black
        To me Men In Black is the ultimate! The show and the themeing from preshow to unload all ties together!

        4. Star Tours vs. The Simpson's Ride
        The Simpson's win this HANDS DOWN! I love this ride!

        5. Indiana Jones Stunt Show vs. Sinbad's 8th Voyage
        IDK about this one. If I was a 12 year old boy it would be Sinbad's, but Indy is classic. I am going to call this one a tie.

        6. Space Moutain vs. The Mummy
        If I had to choose one, I would choose The Mummy. Great story, great set up.

        7. Dinosaur vs. Spiderman
        SPIDERMAN all the way! Even though I love Dinosaur oh sooo much, I could not live without Spiderman!

        8. Winnie the Pooh vs. Cat in the Hat
        Hmmmm Winnie the Pooh! I love being able to take my little nieces on this ride! I LOVE IT!

        9. Lights Action Motors vs. Fear Factor Live
        Lights Action Motors here! I love explosions, and loud cars!

        10. Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Jurrassic Park
        Oh don't mess with a classic like Pirates!

            Re: Disney vs. Universal head to head competition

            Is it really fair to compare Star Tours to Simpsons? I mean, I haven't been on Simpsons, and I know that Star Tours is basically the only simulator left in WDW, but I would certainly hope that a simulator made today (even if it just used existing technology) would be a LOT better than a simulator that's over a decade old (older than that).

            Why not compare to Soarin'?

              For Splash Mountain and Dudley Do Right, Splasg wins hands down! DDR has a great drop but theit cardboard character cutouts just don't cut it in my book.
              Again, Philharmagic wins because the stage disappearing act is unparalled in the 3-D or 4-D movie world.
              Buzz and MIB are a tie because their both fantastic.
              Simpson's win over Star Tours anyday. Star Tours desperatelt needs some updating.
              Indiana Jones wins over Sinbad because Indy has great appeal for action, romance, fire, etc. Overall, Indy's show is amazing
              In my opinion, Universal tried too hard w/ Mummy. Space is a classic that can't be beat. Hey, Just my opinion.
              NEVER RODE SPIDERMAN OR DINOSAUR
              NEVER RODE CAT IN THE HAT
              NEVER SAW FEAR FACTOR
              I love Pirates but Universal did a phenomenal job w/ Jurassic. The suspense, ambience, and effects were awesome. That drop was awesome, too.

              Well their's the results for WDWImagineer's Universal vs. Disney!:thumbup:

                  Re: Disney vs. Universal head to head competition

                  I think Rockin roller coaster vs the mummy would be a better comparison.

                  and how about TOT vs dr dooms?

                    We could add those. I was trying to keep the list to a managble size.

                    But maybe I should have paired the mummy against rockin.

                    Even if that were the case I would still choose The Mummy.

                      Re: Disney vs. Universal head to head competition

                      As much as I like Disney, some of the head to heads don't do justice to Universal.

                      For example

                      Star Tours vs the Simpsons

                      Star Tours is currently Disney's best similator in the US. Universal's best simulator is Spiderman...currently the gold standard.

                      Also for example:

                      Philharmagic vs Shrek 4D:

                      Again, Philharmagic is Disney's best 3D experience. T-2 is Universal's...not Shrek. So these two would be a fairer comparison. I haven't seen T-2 (first time later this year!) but from what I have read, it is more technologically advanced. I do love Philharmagic, so I'll reserve judgement till later.

                      I applaud Universal for giving us here in the States the opportunity to have state-of-the-art rides and shows...Disney seems to leave their best these days for Japan. With the Harry Potter ride on the way, things will only get better.

                        Splash Mountain vs. Dudlye Doo Righs Ripsaw Falls
                        Only been on Splash, so I can't compare.

                        Philharmagic vs. Shrek 4D
                        Only seen Philharmagic, so can't compare.

                        Buzz Light Year (or Toy Story Mania) vs. Men In Black
                        Men in Black!

                        Star Tours vs. The Simpson's Ride
                        Only been on Star Tours, so can't compare.

                        Indiana Jones Stunt Show vs. Sinbad's 8th Voyage
                        Only seen (and been in) Indy, so can't compare.

                        Space Moutain vs. The Mummy
                        Only been on Space Mountain, so can't compare.

                        Dinosaur vs. Spiderman
                        Haven't been on either, so can't compare.

                        Winnie the Pooh vs. Cat in the Hat
                        Cat in the Hat!

                        Lights Action Motors vs. Fear Factor Live
                        Haven't seen either, but I HATE Fear Factor, so I'll say Lights, Motors, Action! just because.

                        Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Jurrassic Park
                        Only been on Pirates, so can't compare.

                          Re: Disney vs. Universal head to head competition

                          Usually, I sit these out, but I'm bored so I'll play:

                          1. Splash Mountain vs. Dudlye Doo Righs Ripsaw Falls ... Splash and it isn't even close. One of Disney's best. I just wish they'd clean the filthy logs once in a while and get all the effects in proper show condition. I just rode Ripsaw for the first time recently (only attraction I had skipped since IOA opened) and it's just godawful. It exists only to soak you more than a shower and ruin your clothes. It's just not fun at all. Dreadful.

                          2. Philharmagic vs. Shrek 4D ... PhilharMagic takes this by a mile. Classic Disney is going to always beat hip for the moment 'tude that Shrek has.

                          3. Buzz Light Year (or Toy Story Mania) vs. Men In Black ... can't talk about TSM until I ride. But MiB simply blows Buzz away in every aspect from real sets to guns that are easy to operate etc ... Buzz is a simple little ride. MiB isn't.

                          4. Star Tours vs. The Simpson's Ride ... haven't ridden the latter yet, so no opinion.

                          5. Indiana Jones Stunt Show vs. Sinbad's 8th Voyage ... Indy wins, but neither are that great and both need updating.

                          6. Space Moutain vs. The Mummy ... sadly, in 2008 the Mummy wins this easily. SM in its current condition is a joke.

                          7. Dinosaur vs. Spiderman ... Spidey by a mile ... no by 10 miles.

                          8. Winnie the Pooh vs. Cat in the Hat ... Ca tin the Hat by the same.

                          9. Lights Action Motors vs. Fear Factor Live ... they both suck, but one cost a whole lot more to do so.

                          10. Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Jurrassic Park ...c'mon ... how do you compare the two. Even in its dumbed down state with bad sound, PoC is a classic. A must for most guests. JP ... well, a better comparison might be to either Splash or Dinosaur (it would lose on both of those counts too) ... it's dinos were not all functional last month and besides, it cost me a nice cap (the first time I've ever lost anything on a ride anywhere in my entire life!) JP isn't bad when everything is working, but it isn't a classic by any stretch. It's not even a can't miss at IOA.

                            1. Splash Mountain vs. Dudlye Doo Righs Ripsaw Falls

                            Splash Mountain, mainly because Ripsaw has been a mess since before it even opened, and very problematic in the upkeep dept.

                            2. Philharmagic vs. Shrek 4D

                            Shrek all the way, I don't like Philharmagic at all.


                            3. Buzz Light Year (or Toy Story Mania) vs. Men In Black

                            MIB easily


                            4. Star Tours vs. The Simpson's Ride

                            The Simpsons easily wins this one, I've never liked Star Tours except for it's outside facade and queue.


                            5. Indiana Jones Stunt Show vs. Sinbad's 8th Voyage

                            This ones tough because I'm not a fan of the Indy movies, but the stunt show is decent, as is Sinbad, so it's a tie for me.


                            6. Space Moutain vs. The Mummy

                            The Mummy, I've never been a fan of SM.


                            7. Dinosaur vs. Spiderman

                            Spiderman, though Dinosaur is my fav ride at WDW.


                            8. Winnie the Pooh vs. Cat in the Hat

                            I'll take Cat in the Hat any day over poor Pooh Bear.


                            9. Lights Action Motors vs. Fear Factor Live

                            LMA easily trumps that crappy show known as FFL.


                            10. Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Jurrassic Park

                            Have not ridden JPRA so can't compare them.

                              1. Splash Mountain vs. Dudlye Doo Righs Ripsaw Falls Splash and it ain't close.

                              2. Philharmagic vs. Shrek 4D Philharmagic and again it ain't close.

                              3. Buzz Light Year (or Toy Story Mania) vs. Men In Black Not a fan of either.

                              4. Star Tours vs. The Simpson's Ride Haven't had the pleasure of the Simpson's Ride but Back to the Future was much better than Star Tours.

                              5. Indiana Jones Stunt Show vs. Sinbad's 8th Voyage Indiana Jones.

                              6. Space Moutain vs. The Mummy Space Mountain. I rode the Mummy once and the only thing I remember was the loooong wait.

                              7. Dinosaur vs. Spiderman Spiderman.

                              8. Winnie the Pooh vs. Cat in the Hat Who cares?

                              9. Lights Action Motors vs. Fear Factor Live Never seen Fear Factor so by default LMA.

                              10. Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Jurrassic Park My son is making me vote for JP. We rode it several times in a row per his request.
