    I'm interested in the new rides like Mickey's runaway railroad and the Spiderman. Sometimes you find something you like and it's a shame when the recipe is changed.

    Assuming everything OP had listed was open at once and I had to pick one: Princess and the Frog. I'd be dying to see what they did with Splash and if it was generally successful. After scoring a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance, of course.

    I'm interested to see what they've done with Snow White. The previous version had a great entry queue, with the Queen's dungeon, but shortly after the attraction begins, you stop following Snow White, and start following Queen, instead. And the most shocking part was, when you get to the Dwarf cottage, you opened the door, and the Queen had taken up residence there instead of Snow White.

    It was a mess.

    I agree. BVS is simply AMAZING. SOOOO well done. I need to finish my TR on the DCA tour I took because it was EXTREMELY thoughtful how they did it.

    By way of historical side note, the philosophy that Park rides must force-feed the audience a story thruline became de rigueur under Eisner, when non-creative EVPs, VPs and executive wannabes jumped on the fad of taking screenwriting courses. The result was a corporate hierarchy of non-creative executives who gave the company's creatives massive quantities of notes on their creative work. It had an especially negative effect on animation and imagineering.

    3) Princess and the Frog Splash Mountain
    4) New Sleeping Beauty Castle
    5) Snow White's Enchanted Wish
    6) New Jungle Cruise
    7) Spider-Man Web Slinger

    I'm just not very intrigued by another "shoot things while riding in a vehicle" concept.
    This to a tee.

    I would make the case that it never needed to. The traditional dark rides don't follow a narrative in the usual sense, being more about atmosphere and impressionism. Even the name, "Snow White's Scary Adventures," doesn't line up with the ride, which includes material Snow White never experiences in the movie. It progresses naturally from cheerful scenes to mysterious ones to frights and jump-scares, leading up to a violent climax. The only issue is that the designers felt the need to then ham-handedly assure as that there was a happy ending (as if we couldn't infer that from the fact that it closed with the scary evil witch dying in a lightning strike).

    The only reason this is my preferred first go compared to all the others is that (1) I've been on RotR, (2) I'm certain Disneyland will be open before they finish Runaway Railway and maybe even start the Princess and the Frog retheme, and (3) I've already ridden Midway Mania so I don't think I need to be first in line for Spiderman. Jungle Cruise, if it's finished, can be second.

    I'm most excited for Runaway Railway. I've watched ride through videos of the one at WDW and it looks so cute and fun like you're really in a cartoon.
    ROTR is my second place pick, though it was already open prior to the park closure.

    I'm least interested in the Spider-man ride because I don't really like the Marvel stuff and to date I have never been to DCA other than the recent Buena Vista Street shopping expansion.

    For me it is DLRR, and then maybe Mark Twain Steamboat.

    Hmm, well, even though I think it's the least likely to actually be done when the park re-opens, it's Splash Mountain for me. I can't wait to see what the new overlay looks like. And then straight over to Rise of the Resistance.
