There is so much to see and do in Disney World; I think it would be impossible to do all of it! So for me, there are certain things (in this case rides) that I just HAVE to do, like no Disney trip would be complete without it.
#10 Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ( Magic Kingdom):
This is one of the newer rides in Magic Kingdom. It's great for anyone, no matter the age. It is a roller coaster but it's not too intense and it rides really smooth. I know so many people that like it ranging from my little cousins and all the way to my grandma!
#9 Splash Mountain (Magic Kingdom):
I love the theming on splash mountain and the music is so fun! I also really like how the drop at the end adds a thrill ride element to an otherwise pretty calm ride.
#8 Magic Kingdom classics (Magic Kingdom):
This includes Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and It's a Small World (okay maybe not Small World every time, but everyone should try it at least once). These all really show the Magic of Disney and make my vacation feel complete.
#7 Expedition Everest (Animal Kingdom):
This ride is what I think of when I think of Animal Kingdom. I have loved this ever since I was little and I don't think I could live with myself if I went to Disney without riding this at least once.
#6 Space Mountain (Magic Kingdom):
Once of the most thrilling rides at Disney, this is also one of my favorites. It is really fun if you like fast roller coasters. If you don't, it's not for you.
#5 Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (Hollywood Studios):
Another one of the most thrilling rides in Disney World, this has been one of my family's favorites for a long time. Nothing beats the feeling you get on this ride going 0-60 in 3 seconds!
#4 Toy Story Mania (Hollywood Studios):
This interactive ride is a must do for all ages. The theming is amazing and the game is really fun! Just make sure you get there early as it gets really crowded.
#3 Soarin' (Epcot):
Soarin' is truly an amazing ride. It feels like you are flying and the sights you can see are beautiful. This is another one that is great for all ages.
#2 Tower of Terror (Hollywood Studios):
Tower of Terror has been my entire family's favorite ride for a while. I used to be able to say with certainty that it is the best ride in Disney World, but Flight of Passage is giving it a run for it's money. Regardless, Tower of Terror is still one of the best rides in Disney World and no vacation would be complete without it.
#1 Avatar Flight of Passage (Animal Kingdom):
One of the newest rides in Disney, this might be the best. it is so well done and everything feels so real! However, this is one you have to get to first thing in the morning (or get a fastpass) to avoid a ridiculously long wait time.
This list is likely to change in the near future with the addition of Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios, but for now, these are my absolute must-do's for Walt Disney World! What are your must-do's? Feel free to share them in the comments below.
