As we continue to prepare for our first-ever trip to WDW in June, we are wondering which rides at WDW are so much like those at DLR that we can afford to skip them. We know that many rides have the same names, but are they different enough that we should experience them or not?

In general, anything based on a film (Muppets, Tough to Be a Bug, Star Tours, HISTA, Soarin', Toy Story) will be pretty identical. Headline attractions and dark rides will generally be different enough where, if you have enough time, I'd think it was worth going on again. Bear in mind however that the majority of the duplicated attractions, with a handful of exceptions (ToT, Pooh, Splash Mountain) are largely considered inferior to the DLR versions (PoTC, IASW, Fantasmic!, Tiki Room, SM, Magic of Disney Animation.)

Honey I Shrunk the Audience is identical, as is Star Tours.

The Mad Tea Party is pretty much the same, as is Dumbo/Magic Carpets and other attractions like that. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is the same track layout, however all of the theming is different. Lights, Motors, Action is very similar. Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin is quite similar to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, but the guns are fixed to the car instead of handheld like Paris'.

The dark rides are similar, so Peter Pan, Snow White, etc.. But are always worth a go anyway :D

Those are the only ones I can think of right now...
