Last week on the WDW Fan Zone BlogCast Midnight Magic Episode #6 we discussed our top 3 must do’s at Walt Disney World. When I started to think about my top 3 must do’s I thought my head would explode because my top 3 is more like a top 333. There is so much I look forward to seeing and doing at Walt Disney World each and every time I go that this task was no where near as easy as I presumed it would be. Since I don’t get to Walt Disney World nearly as often as I would like my time is spent mostly inside the parks but I always make time for a Monorail ride, resort hopping, resort dining, and a visit to Downtown Disney.
The Magic Kingdom is home for several of my favorite attractions starting with an old time classic, the Carousel of Progress and let’s not forget the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover. Other favorites of mine are the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Jungle Cruise. Though, I give the nighttime version of the Jungle Cruise a slight edge over the daytime ride. Let’s not forget the fireworks show, Wishes. I haven’t even gotten around to the food at the Magic Kingdom where the Be Our Guest dining experience has very quickly become a family favorite.
In Epcot there are several great attractions that I must do each time I am at Walt Disney World. One of my all time favorite attractions in Epcot is Spaceship Earth and I absolutely love Soarin. Then there is the always spectacular Test Track. I always say you don’t need to be a kid to love Turtle Talk with Crush. I do enjoy space travel on Mission Space (green version) and no trip to Disney World is complete without viewing Illuminations. When you talk about must do dining experiences World Showcase has so much to offer from Via Napoli to Le Cellier and beyond.
My kids love Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s and I can understand why. They have the always awesome Toy Story Midway Mania, Tower of Terror ride, Star Tours, the Beauty and the Beast stage show. Also, the Indian Jones Stunt Spectacular never gets old. I love Muppet Vision 3-D and One Man’s Dream is a must do. I did not include Rock’n’Roller Coaster not because it isn’t a great attraction, it is for those without motion sickness but for me it is a definite no, no. Just a little side note on the Rock’n’Roller Coaster, when it opened my wife went on with my then five year old son and I stayed with my then 2 year old daughter. I asked my wife if the ride had any loops. She was well aware of my motion sickness. She said “there aren’t any loops, go on, you’ll love it.” I listened to her and went on with my son who loved the ride. When I came off I was nauseous and diszzy. I didn’t feel better for hours.
Whenever I go to Animal Kingdom I always enjoy Dinosaur and Kali River Rapids where oddly I have never gotten wet. I did experience Expedition Everest when it first opened and I loved the queue as well as the ride until it started going backward and my motion sickness kicked in. Also, two of my favorite Disney World shows are Finding Nemo the Musical and the Festival of the Lion King which from what I hear is going to be relocated behind Tusker House.
