  • WDW Magic Kingdom - the keeper of the flame.

    Although the MK is much maligned for it's poor upkeep, it is actuallly turning out to be the keeper of the flame for many missed original Disneyland attractions:

    Tom Sawyer Island (not Pirates Lair!)
    Swiss Family Treehouse (also in Paris - which has the best version. Tokyo has it too)
    Peoplemover
    Astro Orbiter (Rocket/Star Jets) still on top of platform accessed by the gantry
    Country Bear Jamboree (well it was a MK original)
    Carousel of Progress (or at least, the rotating theatre...since COP is supposedly moving to the Smithsonian)
    CircleVision (okay, it's at EPCOT, not MK)

    Frankly, I like that fact very much.

        I'd say keeper of the flame... for now. If Disney has a large number of guests that love the Pirate Overlay of TSI then it may move to WDW.

        Things are always changing sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad but at least they are trying to be innovative. Sometimes they suceed and sometimes they fail.

          How? Pirates are in Adventureland. At DL, NOS is right there, but not in the MK.

            I'll take the Tiki Room, the Submarine Voyage and Mr. Toad over any of those any day.

              I somewhat agree. People complain that that Magic Kingdom does not get the same updates as Disneyland. This is true, however, "updates" also mean that the classics get replaced with...well...Pixar attractions.

              Of course, MK also has an old Fantasyland, less than spectacular PoTC, HM, Space Mountain, etc. There are pros and cons to everything.

                  Yes, which is why that attendance remains high enough to keep it going in it's current state! It's a win-lose situation.

                  Oh... and you seem to forget the wonderful, longer Jungle Cruise (regardless of piranas) and the amazing Splashing Mountain! And one must not forget the classic Space Mountain and original vintage parade floats still in operation today! [Yes, that line was just for you TDLFAN. :ap:] Long live the people mover!

                  I still love the Bears, the Astro Orbiter (that I will only right at night,) and the fun TSI complete with open Fort Longhorn at MK and CircleVision being at Ep-ity-cot (even though I HATED CV as a kid!)

                      That's unfortunate, it was working when I was there.

                      Well, I never said MK was the best because of it. But I would disagree with you about SM and HM. I like the MK SM better than the one at DL and I like the MK HM just as much as the DL one. I do agree that POTC sucks at the MK, however, and so does fantasyland (excepting the castle of course).

                        The water lift is working.. but not the 'distribution' system currently.

                          Everyone is always bashing the MK but I love it. It may not have that great of upkeep but it is still a good park that I feel the magic in every time i walk in it. It does need a new e-ticket though. Realy, realy, badly.

                            That is my all-time favorite park. It does feel magical when you walk in there. It is always clean and the CMs are friendly whenever I go.

                            I can't wait until October!!!
