    I actually had a hard time with this. Although I am NOT a Michael Eisner fan at all, I agree with what was mentioned earlier that you can't blame him for every wrong move the company made.

    There was one that wasn't on you list that I would have hit, "If You Had Wings" which was cheesy but fun Eastern Airlines sponsored ride, althoughI like the Buzz Lightyear ride there now.


    I also really enjoyed Alien Encounter, much better than Stitch,

    However the one I picked was not Eisner's fault either. I picked the Mickey Mouse Review. I know that it is in Tokyo, but it is not quite the same show there, and it brought such a nice moment to Fantasyland. It was a great piece of theatre and all that was classic Disney.

    Definately Alien Encounter I was so dissapointed when I returned to WDW last January to find Stitch had replaced it....Still a good ride but nowhere near as thrilling or intense as Alien Encounter.

    Here's a description on wikipedia:

    ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The ride was fun and a little less "bright and pretty" than the rest of the MK but very futuristic, intense and sophisticated. And I LOVED it!

    ^^ Cosign. Alien Encounter turned one of the worst attractions in the park (Mission To Mars) into one of the most exciting...... I miss it...

    I don't hate it - and I'll probably visit it whenever I'm in the MK - but I'm always disappointed when I walk out. I miss the thrill!

    Biggest Blunder

    It's interesting to see what everyone considers to be a blunder. I personally don't have the passionate connection to any particular attraction to consider its removal a blunder. I'd say the way Disney handled DISNEY'S AMERICA would be what I'd call a blunder... It went from a high profile theme park idea and became nothing more than a money-grubbing footnote.

    You all remember that?
