Adventureland Walt Disney World.

Adventureland Overview

"Here is adventure, here is romance, here is mystery. Tropical rivers, flowing silently into the unknown, the unbelievable splendor of exotic flowers, the eerie sounds of the jungle, with eyes that are always watching....

This is Adventureland."

               - Walt Disney

Adventureland - Pirates Of The Caribbean

Adventureland Magic Kingdom is another great attraction at Walt Disney World Florida and features 4 areas split in 2 distinct sub areas of the attractions. One of the main rides is the Jungle Cruise; which takes you through areas representing the continents of South America, Africa and Asia. This is a boat ride taking you through the jungles of these continents via the main flowing rivers that exist in these lands. Another venue is the Enchanted Tiki Room, an animated show involving birds creating a fun filled environment that is great for the whole family. One of the 2 main sub areas is the Pirates of the Caribbean, which is quite different from the original opening ride and theme from the 70s; because of the huge success of the movie series. The other main area is the Arabian marketplace that has many wonderful shops that might exist in the northern areas of Africa and eastern parts of Asia. Here you can enjoy the wonderful and colorful items that have been imported to delight the visitors wishing for something other than the usual Disney fare. The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is a ride, much like Dumbo, but with the theme of Aladdin and all the other features from this film. The last major attraction in Adventureland is Swiss Family Tree House that is fun for the whole family as you explore this magical tree house that is high up in a enormous tree.

The Jungle Cruise

The Jungle Cruise is an imaginary ride into the 3 continents of South America, Africa and Asia with areas of plant life that are a great addition to the landscape of this ride. For about 10 minutes you travel into the jungle areas of deepest darkest Africa, Asia and finally South America with elephants playing around a waterfall, hippos bathing, a rhino keeping hunters occupied, zebras, snakes and butterflies. The guides that operate these boats all have their own repertoire which makes the boat ride so much fun and carry special weapons that upon firing have a unique sound heard through the boat's sound system. One tiny tidbit of information is that the Sankuru Sadie has sunk once, while none of the others have made that distinction. So, if you end up riding on that boat, let the rider beware that it could always happen again.

The Enchanted Tiki Room

The Enchanted Tiki Room- Under new management, who are Zazu from the Lion King movie and lago from the movie Aladdin. The original tropical birds of Jose, Fritz, Pierre and Micheal are still there to keep the audience laughing, with the two new managers, Zazu and lago adding to the zany comical banter that goes on between the birds. It is a great place for the young children to laugh and spoof at the birds as they in turn take turns at cracking jokes or making fun of each other.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean was the precepts that inspired the movie trilogy of the Pirates theme, and now the ride is gradually being upgraded to encompass some of the favorite aspects of this great old theme area. The lines have become longer because of the movies popularity, but generally move pretty quickly. Of course, Captain Jack Sparrow is still up to his usual antics and keeps everyone laughing and smiling. You will enter the boats after having traveled through a dark cave that fall a little into the streaming lanes that wander through the underground cavern, with all the usual sidekicks and stick men in the movie; area also here.  A special note to those coming to Disneyworld this summer, is the addition of the Pirates League, which will be an opportunity for landlubbers, both boys and girls to become a pirate and join Jack's crew. Being able to get into the secret treasure room, will be part of the show after a short tutorial by Jack Sparrow; plus being able to locate clues to other pirate adventures.

Magic Carpets of Aladdin

On the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, you will imagine yourself riding on a magic carpet over the world of Walt Disney, with controls to go up or down, as well as being able to control the pitch of the carpet from the back seat controls. It is a wonderful ride for the younger children but can be boring and not too exciting to the older kids. But if you use those fantastic imaginative powers of yours and close your eyes, you could be flying over the deserts of the Middle East.


Swiss Family Tree House

Swiss Family Tree House is a magical tree that was the main theme in the movie Swiss Family Robinson; about a family that gets shipwrecked on an island in the south Pacific and has to use part of the ship and cargo to build an incredible tree house for the family to live out of the elements of storms and animals. This tree house in Adventureland is a more modern idea of that tree house with many authentic looking materials that could have been on the ship. Standing an impressive 60 feet in the air, with the widest point being 90 feet, this is a great place to go, see and visit. Climbing up and down into the various rooms, you are transported via your great imagination to a land far from the hustle and bustle of today's world. The view from the top is really great and the people at Disney did a wonderful job of using their imaginations to come up with this unusually unique tree house. The bedroom is really good, as well as the outdoor kitchen/cooking area. Definitely a fun place for the children to enjoy and use their great imaginations.

Aloha Island

If you love pineapples and their great flavor, then you should visit Aloha Island in Adventureland to get a delicious pineapple Dole whip. This is the only place in the park where you can get one and this is great ice cream! Another venue in Adventureland that occupies the children for hours, while you enjoy your pineapple delight, the Shrunken Ned's Junior Jungle Boats that are small remote controlled boats that you drive from the safety of a deck while your boat travels the world of ships and pirates.

Tips

  • Start in Adventureland and go clockwise around the park. Most people start in Tomorrowland, so you’ll avoid a lot of crowds.
  • If you or your children enjoy "Dumbo" but hate the long waits, head over to Adventureland and ride "Magic Carpets of Aladdin" instead. It's the same ride, with flying carpets instead of elephants.
