Walt Disney World, since its inception in 1965, has been a favorite tourist spot for children and adults alike. With rides and attractions for people of all ages, it’s no wonder the Disney theme park saw 150 million people in attendance just in 2017, making it the number one theme park of the world!
When there’s so much to see and so little time to do it, how are you supposed to make sure you don’t miss out on the best rides the theme park has to offer?
Simple: by reading through this list of 5 must-visit Disney World rides!
5) Haunted Mansion
A favorite among people of all ages, Magic Kingdom’s darkest and most brilliantly executed ride packs a punch by relaying a story while it takes you through the mansion on a “doom buggy”.
Replete with ghosts, cobwebs, and the surprise waiting for you at the other end, this ride can prove to be too spooky for younger children. What’s this surprise, you say? Well, you’ll just have to find out on your own!
Hint: It’s a surprise to “die” for!
4) Space Mountain
Imagine riding through a roller coaster…in pitch black darkness! That’s exactly what Space Mountain offers you—the chance to shoot straight to the sky in a rocket ship to a height of 180 feet before hurtling you through a series of dips, turns and steep drops.
Fair warning: this is one of Disney World’s most thrilling rides and not recommended for those with health concerns such as high blood-pressure, back/neck problems or pregnancy.
Experience the sights (and smells) of the entire world while sitting in one place with Epcot’s interactive virtual theatre that takes you on an exhilarating trip around the world for an experience that is equally mesmerizing and thrilling.
2) The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
One of Disney World’s most thrilling and simultaneously spooky rides, the Tower of Terror has been a fan favorite for years (as the massive lines attest to)! With multiple freefall drops, shots straight up ahead, horizontal roller coaster movements, combined with the 4D effects of the storyline, this ride is not for the faint of heart!
1) Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Making it to the top of our list, standing tall at a whopping 199.5 feet, Expedition Everest is THE ride to visit on your trip to Disney World. Zooming through the mountain in Animal Kingdom, the ride does not just go forward but also (Warning: Spoiler alert!) goes backwards for an unexpected twist to a classic roller coaster ride.
