Within weeks of moving to Florida and having met Brent he asked me the question that would define my months in Walt Disney World. It was all about what the best Disney World attractions are, and I eventually started asking all my other friends the same question. Now I’m not gonna lie, I will totally judge your personality based on your answer. Spending time in Disney World is one of the many great things you can do in Florida. Another great Florida activity is to go swimming with manatees!


If Disney World was on fire, what 5 attractions would you save?


I think I gave him a different answer 3 or 4 times until I actually made my final decision, and I am ready to share it with you guys too.

So in no particular order, I give you my top 5 Disney World attractions!

Top Disney World Attractions

I first went on Soarin’
in Disneyland, California, and I was actually evacuated from it the second time I went on. I absolutely loved it, and it was the first ride I insisted on going on as a guest in Epcot after receiving our Cast Member admission tickets. A must if you’re in Epcot, and in my opinion it is way better than TestTrack. My whole family loved it too, including my 5-year-old niece and my mum who is scared of heights.

The award for the most relaxing ride in Disney World goes to Tomorrowland’s PeopleMover, and your biggest mistake would be to ignore it due to lack of thrill. You haven’t lived until you have waved at Mr. Incredible from this ride, and it is the perfect getaway from the busy Magic Kingdom below you. It is also a fun ride to watch the fireworks from.

Did you think I was heading towards grandparenthood there? In spite of my first 22 years as an absolute sissy, living in Disney World really toughened me up. Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster is
the attraction I chickened out of in Disneyland, Paris at the age of 17, because I didn’t realise I needed Louise to manipulate me on it for the first time. I truly thank her for that. After I went on it with my eyes shut that first time I was hooked, and you NEED to head over to Hollywood Studios and get on this bad boy.

If I have to pick only one attraction to save, this would be it. It might possibly have something to do with me being so obsessed with the Peter Pan movie that I have a tattoo of Peter and the Darling family on my shoulder, but let me just say that there is a reason this ride has a line that can give that of Space Mountain a run for its money; and that reason is pure perfection.

Yayy, a newbie! This attraction opened months before I finished my program, and boy am I glad it did! Big Thunder Mountain used to be my fifth favourite, but once I went on the Mine Train for the first time (with the before-mentioned Brent Dodge, of course)
I was hooked. The fun queue activities alone makes the wait seem a lot shorter than it is, but even without them the ride is worth it.

There you have my top five attractions, but don’t even get me started on the castle shows, parades and night-time spectaculars. And so I ask you; what 5 attractions would you save?

Nice post, good information for Parents when planning a Disney Cruise. I have a question about the cruise, would it be for adults only or is it really for the family (parents and children).
As for the attactions at Disney World, I like the Haunted Mansion my self, I think it is a kool ride.

I’m glad you liked the post, Jerry!
I think a Disney cruise is just as suitable for adults as for children and families! We travelled as a group of friends (4 20-somethings) and had a great time! 🙂
Love the Haunted Mansion too!
