The Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction Bracket -- Round One, Day Sixteen
This here's the wildest ride in the wilderness!
You know those prompt tweets with a question like “Share with me your most controversial opinion/hottest take about Topic X”? Well, one of the matchups in today’s set of four in the Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction bracket will answer such a question. Who’s ready to get mad at me?
(6) Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (DL) vs. (59) British Revolution: Not this one. This one has an easy answer, and we all know it’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Like I said. Easy! Next.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (DL)
(27) Journey Into Imagination vs. (38) Captain EO: First, let’s be clear that this is referring to the original Journey into Imagination, unlike one of yesterday’s matchups. Second, I will state that of these two, I would vote for the original Journey.
But boy. Boy oh boy. I do not like either of these attractions. At all. I like the idea of Journey into Imagination, but I find it incredibly annoying. And while I find it amazing that Francis Ford Coppola directed an extended music video for Michael Jackson that also features Anjelica Huston in a pre-The Witches role that feels awfully similar, I have never enjoyed Captain EO. I’ve seen it a fair few times, because of how long Disney revived the film after Jackson’s passing, but…putting it lightly, that is not my cup of tea. Neither of these are.
But it’s not up to me. It’s up to you. How do you vote?
Journey Into Imagination
(11) Carousel of Progress vs. (54) Affection Section: Another easy one. It’s the Carousel of Progress or it’s a petting zoo, and obviously, I am voting for the carousel. What do you think?

(22) Sleeping Beauty Castle vs. (43) O Canada: As much as I love and cherish the incomparably funny Martin Short, I very much enjoy the experience of walking through the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland to see diorama-style depictions of the 1959 film (with a good jump scare thrown in for kicks, too).
How do you vote?
