Shockingly, I did pretty much all of the worst attractions at Hollywood Studios (Sounds Dangerous, mercifully, was closed). After all my failures too! Here we go:
- The Magic of Disney Animation: This was . . . underwhelming. Granted, it's been many months since I experienced it, but I honestly don't remember much about it. The preshow with Mushu was kind of cute (if a bit dated). I still think the animators in the observation room are faking it. Plus there was only two. And the whole thing was confusing to navigate - I actually almost went in the exit because of the character meet and greets and the shop there. All in all, meeehhhhhh. But it could be worse!

- One Man's Dream: Please don't hate me! I didn't love this one. I know that is a horrendous thing to say to an internet full of Disneyphiles, but here's the thing: I adore Walt for his legacy. But for him, I would not have this wonderful place called Walt Disney World which I dearly love. But aside from that, I'm not into all the Walt fandom. It's not that I dislike him otherwise. It's just that I don't find it that interesting. What I find interesting is the parks themselves. Particularly, vintage Disney park things. So that is what I loved about this attraction. I loved seeing items from the old WDW attractions that are no more. But I could have skipped the movie at the end entirely. Although I am going to get flogged for this, OMD is a one and done for me.

- Voyage to Narnia: Okay, here's one I think we can ALL agree on. It SUCKS. It is so awful, I almost have no words. This is what happens. You go in and a cast member is waiting for you with a little spiel about the making of the movie (which is almost four years old and was not a blockbuster). Then you walk through the doors and into a kind-of octagonal room that looks like a temple made of grey rock. There's a broken stone table-thing in the middle (very paleolithic looking) and above it there's a screen. You watch some clips from the movie, there are a few special lighting effects in the room, and then it's over. Yep! That's it. Don't forget to check out a few small props and costumes from the movie on your way out! What baffles me the MOST is that I have actually seen a LINE for this thing. WHY are people waiting to experience this awful event?
