Adventureland Rides

Jungle Cruise Video

Ride Length: about 10 minutes
Use Fastpass Here
This attraction allows visitors to cruise down a Disney-made river touring places on four continents. Audio-
Animatronics animals add to the excitement of the ride. While children will enjoy this ride, the jokes might be a little corny for older visitors.

Pirates Of The Caribbean ****

Pirates Of The CaribbeanVideo

Featuring Johnny Depp

Ride Length: about 10 minutes
Recently updated to include Captain Jack Sparrow! This indoor boat ride follows a group of Audio-Animatronics pirates’ adventures. While a popular attraction at the Magic Kingdom, this ride might scare young children.

Swiss Family Treehouse ***

Swiss Family Treehouse

This attraction allows guests to walk through a recreation of the Swiss Family Treehouse. The detail in this
attraction is amazing, but due to a lot of stair climbing, this attraction isn't for everyone.

The Enchanted Tiki Room - Under New Management ****
Show Length: about 10 minutes
Before the renovation of this attraction, it was one of my least favorite shows at the park (I never wanted to hear the "Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" song again). However, the show has been changed for the better. After taking a seat in the Tiki room, the birds begin the show just as before. However, Iago quickly interrupts them and asks them to stop singing that horrible song. With the help of Zazu, the show is very funny and great for the whole family.

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin ***

Magic Kingdom Rides-The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

This ride, which is very similar to the Dumbo attraction, consists of magic carpets that fly around a large Genie lamp. Visitors have control to move the carpets up and down and tilt them from side to side. Large camels near the attraction spit water onto the carpets as they fly by.

Shrunken Ned's Junior Jungle Boats Attraction

Frontierland Attractions

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ***** C

Big Thunder Mountain Video

Height Restriction: 40"
Ride Length: 4 minutes
Use Fastpass Here
This roller coaster, set in a gold mine, is one of the most popular rides in the Magic Kingdom. As a less thrilling roller coaster, Big Thunder Mountain attracts younger riders as well as those who do not like as intense rides. Lines tend to be long and the wait area does not provide much relief from the heat, so be sure to use Fastpass at this attraction.

Country Bear Jamboree ***
Show Length: 17 minutes
The Country Bear Jamboree is a 17 minute show which children of all ages can attend, but this show is a little bit corny for older viewers. During the Christmas season, a special holiday version is presented.

Frontierland Shootin' Arcade **
An extra charge applies if you are interested in practicing your target shooting in this arcade.

Splash Mountain *****

Splash Mountain Video

Height Restriction: 40"
Ride Length: 11 minutes
Use Fastpass Here
After being loaded into log flumes (each flume has 4 rows that hold 2 people), visitors travel through the story of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear. The detail of the Audio-Animatronics animals and their homes is really impressive (You'll notice different things each time you ride). There is one spot (when the log flumes are located so that riders can see other people dropping) where the people on the right side of the flume will get wet. The story continues with Brer Rabbit begging Brer Bear and Fox not to throw him down into the Briar Patch. The drop that follows is very steep and everyone in the boat will get wet (extra water is added on hot days). Tip – sit on the left side in the back of the log flume for the driest ride.

Tom Sawyer Island ***
Transported by raft to the island, visitors are free to explore once there. There are places for adults to sit, while children can play in caves and explore trails and bridges. Aunt Polly's Dockside Inn, located on the island, serves sandwiches and drinks. Visit early in the day, because this attraction closes at dark.

Ride Length: 15 minutes
At your first day as a prison guard at the Galactic Federation Prison Teleport Center, you are training to handle "level one" prisoners. During training, a "level three" prisoner is captured. As the "level three" prisoner, otherwise known as Stitch, tries to escape, help the other prison guards catch him. While this attraction took the place of Alien Encounter, the interior of the ride looks almost identical. Don't wait longer than 5 minutes for this mediocre attraction. This ride might scare young children as there are long periods of total darkness.

Space Mountain ***** C
Height Restriction: 44"
Use Fastpass Here
Space Mountain is one of the most popular Magic Kingdom rides. This roller coaster takes place indoors and in total darkness. While more intense than Big Thunder Railroad, this ride isn't as bad as Rock 'n Roller Coaster. Once near the front of the ride, visitors have the option of going right (slightly scarier) or left, each path leading to a slightly different coaster. Tip - Sit in the front for a more intense ride. The ride has been updated recently plus there are interactive games in the line wait areas.

Astro Orbiter ****
Ride Length: about 2 minutes
The Astro Orbiter, while similar to the Dumbo ride, has some unique qualities. Visitors must travel up an elevator to reach the top of the building in order to board the jets. Once on board, riders circulate around a rocket and have the ability to make their jets go up and down. This ride tends to have a long wait, so ride early in the morning.

Tomorrowland Indy Speedway * * * * *

Liberty Square Attractions

The Hall of Presidents ****
Show Length: 23 minutes
An educational, entertaining show on the nation's presidents. Each president is represented in a lifelike fashion, but only Barak O’Bama and Lincoln speak.

The Haunted Mansion ****

The Haunted Mansion

Visitors are taken into the main room of the mansion where the ceiling is magically "raised". From there, riders are loaded into "Doom Buggies" in pairs to ride through the haunted house. Throughout the ride, visitors are introduced to the 999 ghosts and even get the chance to have one ride in their "Doom Buggies". Tip - When you enter the "stretch room", stand on the side closest to the fireplace as you enter, as there are two stretching rooms side by side, and the exit is always between them.
