    Re: Rides you used to like, but now avoid for some reason

    I wouldn't say there are any rides or attractions I avoid, but I no longer have any interest in ridng the Autopia. This was one of those rides I HAD to go on as soon as I was tall enough to ride solo, but now evokes nothing more than "meh." I'm not sure if it is the different perspective of an adult or changes made over the years, but when I was younger the cars seemed to have more pick-up and the overall experience seemed less regimented and more like a "highway of tomorrow."

    Submarines for me. Enjoyed it as a kid and hadn't been on it in YEARS. Rode it last year to see the Nemo changes. UGH so terribly boring and long and it took FOREVER to get off because we were the last sub in line. Won't ever ride it again. Autopia is another but that is mainly due to the usually horrible wait time.

    Without a doubt, the best part of the ride.
    If that wasn't there I probably would have only ridden it once... Now I ride it all the time haha

    Tea Cups, but I never liked them..

    Peter Pan is one, mostly because the wait time with very little enjoyment involved. I can go stand in line for 45 minutes and zoom around space!

    There's a few that I tend to shy away from, but it's not so much "avoid" for any particular reason..

    Winnie The Pooh comes to mind. Doesn't interest me. And apparently no one else on the planet.
    Storybook Land, I usually have a hard time getting people to ride it with me.. and I don't want to be that "one guy" who ends up on the boat by himself.
    Dumbo, seriously.. I haven't been on that thing since I was at least 9 or something. Only did Astro Orbitor once just to say I did it.

    That's because it is now the Rocket Rods. But the line is like 3 hours long all the time because it is always breaking down. I hope they can figure out the issues and fix them, because I would hate to see the People Mover tracks not being used. Of course, a ride on those tracks is vital to the kinetic energy of Tomorrowland, so if they decide to scrap Rocket Rods, I'm sure they'll have a replacement lined up right away.

    I also adore Peter Pan's Flight, but rarely ride it due to the long line. Same goes for Alice.

    There are several rides I don't go on, but none of them fall into the category of "used to like" except Matterhorn.

    Not sure. I'm still getting on lots of rides, and still avoiding ones I know I'll be getting sick (Star Tours, ToT, California Screamin', Silly Symphony Swings). My daughter keeps me busy getting on as many rides as possible during our visits.

    I tend to avoid Fantasyland in general. I did it both trips this year because I went with people who wanted to spend the time in the land, but I usually skip it. Too many strollers and kids that run into you. The only thing I never skip in Fantasyland is Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    I also avoid ToonTown almost every trip. I like Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin a lot but I learned the secret to only go on it at night after the parade and/or fireworks are over. ToonTown is a ghost town after then. I walked right on Roger Rabbit and the Gadget Coaster last month at about 8:30pm.

    Space Mountain is one that I avoid period. And it bugs me because when I was younger, I avoided it like the plague, but then went on it as an adult and loved it. Now, I just can't stand the headache afterwards. I can still do Indy, Big Thunder, and the Matterhorn but in Indy I start to get headaches. I will do Star Tours, but really shouldn't, but the update is just so cool and I always hope for Vader and the Wookie planet! *lol*

    Re: Rides you used to like, but now avoid for some reason

    Nowadays, I avoid the Dumbo ride and Casey Jr. In the case of the latter, if I wanted a trip through Storybookland, I'm fine with the canal boats.

    I also haven't been on the Matterhorn in a while, but not because I don't like it. It's always not working when we hit it right then. On our last trip, we waited for about 20 minutes to get on because there was an issue. They finally got it working, but when we got into the bobsleds, we moved, oh, about ten feet before it shut down again. They said it would be about a half hour before it could be reopened again. By now, we decided not to wait and go off someplace else in the park.

Since the new cars were put in none of us want to ride it any more. We range in age from 8-50 and we all went from laughing through the whole ride to screaming OWWWW.
    The old style cars were rough but it was more of a fun beating than a truly painful one.
    And being on the heavy side makes it an art to get my feet out from the holes they go in and lifting myself out of the car at the end.
    I am heavy...and tall. Hard to get far down enough in the sled to avoid getting beheaded.
