I came across this article on Pinterest. I visit often and always like to read these types of articles. I had to go up and check the date this was published since you recommended Maelstrom! Its been closed for years now. Also, Ellen's ride was closed last year. You might want to update your list and include Frozen and most people wouldn't want to miss Test Track either.
