Note: This post is part of a 15 Day challenge with questions referring to Disneyland or Walt Disney World. For more information, or to see all 15 questions, please refer to the introductory post, The 15 Day Disneyland Challenge.

Day 10: The Attraction You Avoid.

At first I thought to myself, “should I just leave this entry blank? I mean, I don’t purposely avoid anything I can think of. Of course, I have favorites and ones I’m not heartbroken if we don’t visit, but avoid?? No such thing. Then I realized, there is one area. One that I didn’t even think of, because to me, it’s less of an attraction and more of a pointless commercial.


More advertising than innovative.


I had hopes for Innoventions when the “New” Tomorrowland opened. I think this was partially due to the fact that this was the building that housed the Carousel of Progress and America Sings, and, well, I was just happy to see it getting used again. I have never felt so let down by an attraction in my life, and this is coming from someone who rode the Rocket Rods. I don’t know what I was expecting. Maybe more “hands on” exhibits, like a science museum. Instead, we were treated to video games, computer software, and a virtual tour of a GM plant. Disney has tried to add more from time to time, and a few times I have gone back in, only to want out rather quickly. I realize this sounds harsh coming from someone who loves Disney as much as I claim; but I love them because they’ve usually exceeded my expectations. Alas, this was not oneĀ  of those times.


Until a new attraction replaces it, it’s not so beautiful for me.


I hold out hope that an expansion will come soon, that something worth seeing will soon be in that area. I even have my own ideas of a show that would work within the building. But until something new and different happens, I’ll just have to keep waiting.

How about the rest of you? Anything in the parks you avoid on your trips?
