Popular Disney World Attractions

By: Peter Kenny

Walt Disney World is one of the most popular theme parks in the entire world. As a result, thousands upon thousands of people visit the park every year. When you finally get your big chance to visit this vacation Mecca, there are a few rides and attractions that you absolutely must be sure to see.

Mickey's PhilharMagic

Mickey's PhiharMagic, which is located in the Magic Kingdom park, is an absolute must see. This 3-D movie brings the magic of Disney to life and includes all of the classic Disney characters. This movie is a good introduction to your stay at the park as it helps set the stage for the magic that lies ahead.

Wishes Nighttime Spectacular

Cinderella's castle is the symbolic icon of the Magic Kingdom park, and for good reason. The castle sits majestically against the horizon and is lit up in a breathtaking fashion as fireworks explode in the nighttime sky at the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. Obviously, you will have to stay into the evening to catch this show, but you have so much to do at this park that staying won't be a problem

Mission Space

When visiting Epcot, Mission:Space is an absolute must. Here, you can choose from two different "trainee levels" one for those that are ready to truly experience how it feels to travel in space and one for those whose stomachs are a bit weaker.

Soarin'

Soarin' at Epcot generally requires a very long wait in line, but the wait is worth it. This majestic ride lifts you high above the sights, sounds, and smells of a variety of locations as you soar through the sky. For the fainthearted, this ride is only a small challenge as you are only lifted slightly off the ground and are comfortably seated.

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

If you like big thrills, you absolutely must climb aboard the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror when visiting MGM Studios. This ride lifts you 13 stories up the Hollywood Tower and repeatedly lets you fall to what seems like certain death.

Rockin' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

The thrills continue at MGM Studios with the Rockin' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. This ride is considered by many to be one of the smoothest roller coasters ever designed, yet it does not fall short of the thrills as it throws passengers upside down at breakneck speeds.

Finding Nemo The Musical

Finding Nemo The Musical can be enjoyed at the Animal Kingdom park. Although Disney offers several different musicals, this is the must-see show of them all as the movie is brought to life in a spectacular performance.

Kilimanjaro Safaris

Kilimanjaro Safaris is enjoyed by the young and the old alike. With this ride, you will have the opportunity to come up close and personal with a number of African animals, including lions, giraffes, and elephants. You will also engage in a high-speed chase as you attempt to thwart the activities of poachers.

Disney has literally dozens of amazing rides to enjoy and selecting just one to see is a difficult task to do. Nonetheless, there are a few rides that should be at the top of your list in order to truly enjoy the magic that Disney World has to offer.
