Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I suppose first it is important to outline the scale. For the purposes of this post, “attraction” means any ride, show, or “experience” that is available at Walt Disney World that I also deemed worthy of being included in this post. Based on someone else (@dibadisney) I saw doing this, albeit much earlier than me, I am going with a five-point scale as follows:

1: This attraction means nothing to me. Disney could decide to bulldoze it tomorrow and I wouldn’t have any issues whatsoever.

2: This attraction is okay. I like the core concept/ride-system/theme/placement/etc but it could be re-themed/re-purposed and I wouldn’t have any issues.

3: This attraction should stay as-is, but I don’t have strong feelings either way for it.

4: This attraction means something special to me and I want to keep it as-is, but if something were to be announced that would make it better then I would be okay. Only enhancements, no replacements.

5: Don’t touch this attraction under any circumstances. Anything (even minor) done to this attraction would be a personal insult to me and my entire family.
