I never thought that I would turn into a Walt Disney World fan. But after my parents moved an an hour outside of Orlando, Florida it sort of just happened. I am now a Walt Disney World Passholder and look for any excuse to go. My favorite park is Magic Kingdom and I try to visit every time that I am in Florida. My family has found that it is best to go on weekdays, when the parks are a little less crowded, and that has given us the opportunity to explore almost everything that Magic Kingdom has to offer. Here is my take on Ranking the Attractions At Magic Kingdom.
Ranking The Attractions At Magic Kingdom
1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
2. Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
3. Haunted Mansion
I am pretty sure that my family rides this every time that we visit the park. Take a “spirited tour” through this Haunted Mansion and see all of the ghosts living inside. The hologram of the little girl blowing out her birthday candles is my favorite. The mansion is air-conditioned; a perfect escape from the Florida heat.
4. Splash Mountain
I have only ridden Splash Mountain once, but it was a lot of fun. Guests accompany Br’er Rabbit on his journey to find his “laughing place”. It is a longer trek than I had anticipated, so I was on the edge of my seat (literally) waiting for the famous drop. Be prepared because you will get wet.
5. Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train
Although this is a rollercoaster, it’s not anything crazy. My favorite part of this ride is when you enter the Dwarf’s mine and see all of their colorful jewels. FYI: Although I very much enjoyed it, I would not wait in line two hours to ride this.
6. Jungle Cruise
This scenic boat tour takes you across rivers in in Asia, South America, and Africa. Your guide will make corny jokes throughout your cruise (all of which I found to be hilarious). You will encounter all sorts of animals on your journey, so watch out!
7. Mickey’s PhilharMagic
Just thinking about this attraction makes me smile. Sit in an air-conditioned theater for this 12 minute 3D adventure lead by Donald Duck. He takes you through scenes in multiple Disney movies and interacts with the characters. The best part is during “Be Our Guest” when smells of pies and cakes are piped into the theater. How cool!
8. Space Mountain
9. It’s a Small World
One of the most iconic attractions at Magic Kingdom, you are guaranteed to smile as you travel across the world while listening to “It’s A Small World”. The colors are incredibly vibrant there is a ton of glitter, two things that I love. Warning, you will be singing “It’s A Small World” for the rest of the day.
10. Under the Sea: Journey of The Little Mermaid
This attraction will have you singing and dancing in your clamshell seat. Relive parts of The Little Mermaid with very cool animatronics and colorful lights. This is another ride that is perfect for cooling off.
11. Hall of Presidents
Take a break from the heat in this air-conditioned theater. The show gives you a run down of the United States’ Presidents in numerical order.
12. Pirates of the Caribbean
Most people think that this ride was created for the movie, but it was in fact this ride that sparked the movie. It opened at Magic Kingdom in 1973 and the animatronics were state of the art for their time; heck, they still are!
13. Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
The PeopleMover is very much underrated. I love this attraction! Take an overhead tram throughout Tomorrowland and learn about all that the area has to offer. You get to go inside of Space Mountain, too, which is very cool. It is another great ride to take a break on.
14. Tom Sawyer Island
Take a short boat ride over and explore all that this island has to offer. There are tons of hidden passages; you could truly spend an entire day here.
15. Enchanted Tales with Belle
If you have small children that love Beauty and The Beast, this is a must stop on your list. Belle tells the story of Beauty and The Beast with help from some of the children in the group. They get to act out certain parts and is very entertaining.
16. Astro Orbiter
17. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
Play an interactive game at the Ranger Spin. Use the onboard cannon to hit targets and earn points. You compete with the person riding with you which makes it even more fun. And you get to hear Buzz Lightyear say “to infinity and beyond”, so Toy Story fans will love this ride.
18. Monster’s, Inc. Laugh Floor
19. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress
Take a trip through the 20th century to see how technology has evolved over time. The Carousel of Progress is a 21 minute animatronic show that takes you through four generations of a typical American family’s life, all inside of a revolving theater. Walt Disney himself created this attraction and by the end you will be singing along with the show’s “There’s A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” song.
20. Mad Tea Party
Another one of the most iconic rides at Magic Kingdom, the Mad Tea Party will have you spinning around in colored teacups. Rumor has it that one teacup spins faster than all of the rest, but I can neither confirm nor deny that claim.
21. Peter Pan’s Flight
Relive the story of Peter Pan as you fly over London on a pirate ship. This is another ride that always has a huge wait and although it’s cute, I would not wait hours for it.
22. Dumbo the Flying Elephant
23. Tomorrowland Speedway
Take a spin around the speedway. This ride is perfect for little ones who want to get behind the wheel.
24. Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
25. The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
26. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
This attraction always has a huge line outside of it, but I did not find Winnie the Pooh’s journey to be one bit exciting.
27. Swiss Family Treehouse
28. Stitch’s Great Escape!
