I know it may sound cliche, but Disney is truly the most magical place on earth! What makes it so magical? Everything! From the food, the atmosphere, the rides, happiness can be found throughout the park. I have created a list of some of my favorite rides that help make Walt Disney World truly the most magical place for me.

Magic Kingdom

  • Peter Pan’s Flight

I absolutely love this ride because it truly gives the rider a feel of going on that magical journey with Peter Pan to Neverland.

  • Splash Mountain

While I must admit I am not familiar with the movie that this ride is based on, this ride was simply magical to me because of the use of animatronics and the overall length of the ride! Well worth the long queuing line.

  • Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid

As one of my favorite Disney Princesses, I knew I had to go on this ride and see Ariel’s story in person. Go red heads!

  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

I was absolutely amazed by this ride! The colorful gems and fun songs make this ride a true joy. I would advise using a Fast Pass though or you could be facing a wait of an hour and thirty minutes on a good day! Here’s a link for how to avoid waiting for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. http://mousehints.com/disney-information/disneys-magic-kingdom-park/magic-kingdom-rides/seven-dwarfs-mine-train/

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

This ride made me cry. It was simply so special to me and my family because I grew up with Winnie the Pooh. This is how we ended our day at Magic Kingdom (with a Fast Pass) and it truly was the best end to a fantastically magical day.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

  • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

I know, I know, everyone says that. But this one truly took my breath away! I guess free falling in an elevator would do that. But even with so much hype surrounding this ride, I was not disappointed.

  • Toy Story Mania!

As a fan of Toy Story, I knew I had to make this ride a part of my day. I had so much fun in this interactive, shooting ride and even got the high score of the family!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

  • Kilimanjaro Safaris

It seemed in like every post I read about what to do in Disney’s Animal Kingdom this ride came highly recommended. Now I know why! The animals were lively, beautiful, and a great joy to see.

  • Primeval Whirl

We chose this ride for a Fast Pass not really knowing what it would be like. There aren’t a lot of posts about it. But I don’t know why not! This is a very exciting small coaster that drops and spins you through the days of the dinosaurs. We rode it twice!

  • Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

Located in Asia, Animal Kingdom

This was my younger sister’s favorite ride. We rode it three times! This unique ride takes you forward one way and backward a completely different way! Part of the way back is inside the mountain and is in complete darkness. We had fun trying to tell if we truly went upside down or if it just felt that way.

Well, if any of you have made it this far through my post, Thank You for reading my article! I hope you enjoyed seeing what some of my all-time favorite rides at Walt Disney World are.
