It's a matchup like this that reminds me that there is a difference between my favorite ride and (what I think is) the best ride.

There can be 100 identical Rise of the Resistance rides and they'll all be better than the best Pirates ride out there (Shanghai's). Love me some Pirates but Rise is a different beast if we're talking about quality of attraction.

I don’t understand why having identical rides is a problem. I live in California and go to Disneyland frequently. I haven’t been to Disney World in several years. I would be devastated if the ride was only in Florida.

Man I'm a big Star Wars fan but I get the pull towards nostalgia. That being said, I don't remember either Pirates ride ever wowing me as a kid the way Rise wowed my then-seven-year-old. And he wasn't a Star Wars fan at the time either. Yeah I know you couldn't have certain things that weren't invented yet back in the day but FLIPPIN LASER BLASTS ZIP BY YOUR EVER-LOVING HEAD!

Sorry Pirates. Both with or without Captain Sparrow, I just can't vote against AT-ATs and raging space battles right outside the viewports.
