According to the Walt Disney World Annual Pass magazine "The Mickey Monitor", a new replacement for Journey into Narnia is planned to open called, "The Legend of Jack Sparrow Experience".

The new attraction is being described as, "a first-of-its kind sensory experience".  Guests will be enveloped by the world of the Pirates of the Caribbean films.  In this attraction, you will walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow. Unlike other attractions that have been in this location, The Legend of Jack Sparrow Experience is not a making of, or behind the scenes, but rather,  a first person experience.

I'm back... but reluctantly so! I'm never ready for a WDW trip to end. We had absolutely gorgeous weather for the first half of the week. No humidity at all. Then, on Thursday, it became uncomfortably hot, and it made us remember why we like our winter trips better!

I don't think Soarin', Expedition Everest, Splash Mountain, or Rock 'N' Roller Coaster are worth the time it takes to do a child swap. (Side note: child swap refers to when one parent rides first and then when he/she is done, the second parent has their turn, but can by-pass the line). 
 
Why did I give ToT this honor? Well, I may be biased because I thoroughly enjoy haunted house-type rides (anywhere), but I believe ToT is the most well done ride in all of Walt Disney World. As with all Disney attractions, it's not just a ride, but an experience. You can find a free-fall ride at numerous theme parks. In fact, we have one called Drop Tower at the large amusement park in my region. It...
