With the caveats that I haven't been there since Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Frozen and the Avatar land opened (yes, I know I'm overdue), this Disney fan's favorites are as follows:

Magic Kingdom: Splash Mountain, The Haunted Mansion, Buzz Lightyear

Epcot: Soarin, Test Track, Spaceship Earth

Hollywood Studios: Twilight Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster

Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Dinosaur

It's called the Food and Wine festival now and it got so popular that it's now from late September until early November I think.

It's almost impossible to book a Epcot resort during that time unless you do it way in advance.

It's hard to go wrong in Magic Kingdom. The rides that thrill us are Soarin' at Epcot and Radiator Springs Racers at CA. Our teen loves Star Tours at HS and Flight of Passage at AK.

30 years since we last went to Disney, the cost chills it for us. We are too old for all the walking also.

Magic Kingdom: Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, People Mover

Epcot (my wife's and my favorite park): Spaceship Earth, the entire Land Pavilion, The American Adventure

Hollywood Studios: There really aren't many attractions open at this park, so I'll pass lol

Animal Kingdom: Dinosaur, Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest
Space Mountain is super special to my daughter and I. I tricked her on it when she was 5. She was almost to tears before getting on and was mad as hell at me after it was over because she loved it. She's 17 now. We have 18-20 trips under our belts since then. It is her favorite ride. From the time we walk into the building with that trippy, space-cowboy music until we get off the ride ---- her grin is ear to ear.

The Yetti (as we call the Mount Everest) is a very close second. Our goal every time we go to Animal Kingdom is to get there early and ride the Yetti over and over and over again till the line gets long or our head hurts - whichever comes first.

The Blue Line (aka, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover). Look, we call this rides whatever the hell we want. It is a staple in our WDW trips and we like to ride and relax. "Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow, please contact Mr. Johnson in the control tower to confirm your flight to the moon."

We also loved legacy Test Track. We were just lamenting yesterday that the current version is soulless.

We weren't able to get a FastPass for Flight of Passage on MyExperience. We were staying at a Disney resort so we jumped on the FastPasses as soon as the 60 day window opened. We happened to grab a FastPass for Na'vi River Journey first. We later read that guests can only get a FastPass for one of the Avatar rides at a time. I don't know if this is true but it would explain what we experienced.

We were too wrecked from our previous day at Magic Kingdom to do the "rope drop partial-run" routine. We checked FastPasses on the mobile app when we arrived and totally lucked out.
