6. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - Hollywood Studios

It was a dark and stormy Halloween night in 1939. Five unlucky souls stepped into the elevator at the Hollywood Tower Hotel, never to be seen again.

7. Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple - Hollywood Studios

Under the tutelage of Master Jedi, new recruits learn how to use the Force to wield lightsabers. But the call of the Dark Side is strong, and students come face-to-face with their greatest fears - notorious Star Wars villains. The young padawan must use their newly learned skills to protect all those who have gathered, at the ends of the galaxy.

8. Kylo Ren Meet and Greet - Hollywood Studios

Not your run of the mill Character meet, the Kylo Ren experience seems darker and more foreboding than most. There are no smiles, high fives, and hugs on this space station, just the overwhelming power of the dark side. Perfectly in-character, and yet without uttering a word, this experience left my son and I a bit unsettled.

9. It's Tough To Be A Bug! - Animal Kingdom

If you're not a fan of all the things that creep and crawl through this world, It's Tough To Be A Bug may be the most frightening attraction in all of the vacation kingdom. Fantastic 3D movie effects, Audio-Animatronics figures, and in-theater 4D surprises make this show an underground adventure sure to make your skin crawl.

10. Expedition Everest After Dark - Animal Kingdom

Like Big Thunder Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, this coaster is even more fun when you ride it in the dark. There is something ominous about the way the wind howls across the forbidden mountain.

Haunted Mansion has been my favorite for 36 yrs. I remember watching the Wonderful world of Color when I was a kid if they had an episode on Disneyland or WDW just to get glimpse of the HM. It's the very first ride I went on for my first trip to WDW in '81. It's one of the few rides that has been updated for the better, not just for political correctness sake.
