It’s so hard. Choosing only 3 rides out of sooo many good ones. We’re tough though and we’ve done it (after many tears). Here’s OSM’s Top 3 rides at the Walt Disney World Resort:
1. Rockin Roller Coaster – Hollywood Studios
It’s a classic. It moves like no other ride at the parks. Loops, corkscrews, drops, and of course its speed. Plus for some reason we love the cheesy video they show in the studio before-hand. We’re so glad none of them went on to be actors…
2. Kilimanjaro Safaris – Animal Kingdom
But what about Everest? Yes, what about it…? Nothing at Disney World offers such a unique experience like this ride does. Plus we already choose a roller coaster.
Lions, Giraffes, Rhino, Crocodiles, Hippos, and of course Elephants (to name a few) can all be seen on this real safari ride. Maybe the one thing we love the most about it is it’s always different each time you ride. Sometimes you don’t see an animal and sometimes you do. They can be doing different things each time as well. Also, did you ever notice that the guy who stars in the video you watch while in line is the same guy who sells Macaulay Culkin the pearl necklaces that he ends up tearing apart and the bad guys slip on them in Home Alone 2 Lost in New York? We did.
3. People Mover – Magic Kingdom
Yes, it’s a ride. A very relaxing one that gives you time to rest your weary legs and start anew. Also we fall asleep. Sometimes you just need a rest and this is the ride to do it on. Plus it typically never has a line which is awesome.
So there you have it. Top 3. Next time we’ll be sure to do a top 30 just so you know everything that we enjoy doing here. 😉
