We've visited Walt Disney World a few time now, but there is ALWAYS a couple of rides we have to ride over and over again!
5) Space Mountain - Magic Kingdom
This ride must be about a million years old, but I think that’s what makes it so charming! This roller coaster is so rickety and jittery; you won’t even want to put your hands up because you’re too scared you’ll touch the track above you. If you weren’t fully awake when you got on this ride, you will be after! Such a classic ride that will throw you into space. 8 ears!
4) The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - Hollywood Studios
Hollywood, 1939. 5 people went into an elevator and never returned. And now that same elevator is opening for you! DUN DUN DUNNNN. Super terrifying and stomach turning, this ride is bloody fantastic. You get spooked from when you join the queue until you leave the gift shop at the very end. And if you’ve just eaten, remember the golden rule… No tower for an hour! Not for the faint hearted, but a real thrill ride! 8 ears!
3) Spaceship Earth - Epcot
A lot of people might be thinking “really Bethan, REALLY?!” But yeah... REALLY. Who doesn’t love a ride which is educational, fascinating AND narrated by the most wonderful voice on this planet, Dame Judi Dench. (And if you’re really lucky, there are some special ride throughs with Jeremy Irons!) You get to learn about how communication has developed since the dawn of time AND how the Phoenicians gave us our ‘ABCs’. This may not be a thrill ride, but knowledge is thrilling... right? 9 ears!
2) Splash Mountain - Magic Kingdom
Is it a log flume, is it a roller coaster or is it a fun story telling ride?! ITS ALL 3! Before you get into your seat, it’s already soaking wet, so you know what you’re getting yourself into! And while you travel through the story with Brer Rabbit, everyone learns that home is where the heart is. Based on Walt Disney’s Song of the South, you fall 50ft straight into the briar patch and straight into needing a dry set of clothes! Fun for the whole family, and definitely worth a visit. 9 ears!
1) Expedition Everest - Animal Kingdom
This wild ride across the Himalayas will have you on the edge of your seat! Definitely for the thrill seekers in your family, as you speed backwards, IN THE DARK. Your bum actually lifts up off the seat when you plummet 80ft down the side of the mountain (travelling forwards, thank god!) So many dips and turns, even the Yeti would be dizzy himself. Even when you are queuing, there is so much to look at and entertain yourself with. All in all, best ride in Disney World. 10 ears!
So that’s it! Do you agree with me? Any you think should of made the list? Let me know in the comments down below!
