I think the wardrobe one is coolest. Probably because when I was younger, whenever I opened a door, I'd hold my breath hoping I'd get into Narnia (especially at night).

Falling into a picture, by far. There's just something about that, I always wished I could do it as a kid whenever I saw a neat painting (my grandma had quite a few).

There is something magical about all the ways. But I voted for walking through a wardrobe because it is even more out of the ordinary.

I voted dying because then I would get to stay and not have to come back. :D My second choice would be going through a picture.

I didn't think that when I put dieing that some one would pick that. =)) Well, i guess I can always be wrong ;) .

I would love to go through Narnia through a picture, I too always wanted to do this, I find it very facinating and magical. My second choice would be the wardrobe, so cool! :)

When I first read VDT, I thought that the picture on the wall coming to life was just the neatest thing. It really got my imagination going as to whether the picture grew larger or the children smaller: I imagined that both happened. :-$

So guess what I voted for? Being sucked into a pillow case of course. :-o
Just kidding. :D Never happened that we know of so the magic picture gets my vote. :ymapplause:

I voted for the wardrobe, just because it's the first one (well, that I read about) and it's so magical. :)

The picture is pretty cool too, but stepping into a snowy wood is a lot better than being thrown into the cold sea and swimming for your life. :p

I have to admit that when I was younger, after reading LWW I tried every closet in my house to see if I could get into Narnia. I never did. :(( It was still kinda fun anyway. ;)

I voted for falling into a picture though, because it sounds more fun. I love the idea of sitting on my bed then being suddenly pulled by Magic into a picture! :D

I tend to ignore that part. :D I really do like the visual aspect of the picture coming to life and the sounds and smells and a splash of Narnian ocean water coming into Eustace's room. B-)

However, I would also prefer ending up on a snowy landscape to landing in the ocean fully dressed. =;

My aunt runs a Bed and Breakfast, and in one of her guest rooms she has a wardrobe (it looks like the drawing in the book :-o ), and the first time I saw it i looked around to make sure no one was watching and opened the door. Sadly there were no clothes in the wardrobe, and I could not step into it because the floor of the wardrobe did not touch the floor of the room, but I still had fun knocking on the wood at the back of it =)) . SO that is my little wardrobe story. (btw my aunt had moth balls in the wardrobe!!!! :D )

Well, I've never claimed to be normal so I can understand why I would pick something you would think no one would pick. ;) I also thought perhaps I should clarify that I have not gotten on trains in hopes that they would crash or anything along those lines. ;)

Walking into a regular wardrobe and coming out in Narnia definately wins my vote! I can't think of anything that would be more magical. :)

I voted the same as you, Pattertwigs Pal, for the very same reason. :p But the best part of dying to get there, besides the fact that you wouldn't have to come back, is that you would be in Aslan's Country, which is infinitely greater than just Narnia. :D

My second vote would go to the Wardrobe one because there's just something so magical about going into what you think is an ordinary wardrobe and ending up in a wonderful magical world.

Well, there's one you didn't put:
"being blown"
That's what I would've said. The feeling just sounds magical. And which book did "opening a door" come from? Sorry, I haven't read them in a looooong while. Was that SC? Because, technically, they were blown. And if you meant a gate, then they weren't there when they got to the gate.
Then I would have to say dying, since that would be eternal, then the wardrobe, then pulled by magic.
I would've hated doing it how Polly had to do it, as it was done to her against her will. And then I would've been shocked to fall through a picture. The other ways are more pleasant. (Except dying) Walking into a cave, okay, but not as mystifying.
