In preparation for our upcoming Disney Day in Reading, we polled our social media followers on their favorite things about Disney. After tallying votes on Facebook and repins on Pinterest, here are the results for the Top 5 Rides at Walt Disney World.
5. Tower of Terror – Hollywood Studios
Based on the television show The Twilight Zone, the Tower of Terror opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (MGM Studios at that time) in July of 1994. The ride is a drop tower thrill ride which is meaant to simulate the elevator drop in the show which sent an elevator cart full of passengers to the Twilight Zone after the Hollywood Tower Hotel is struck by lightning. Get in line and you might find yourself dropped into the Twilight Zone.
4. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – Magic Kingdom
After a disasterous flash flood hit the small mining town of Tumbleweed, the town was abandoned. It is said that Tumbleweed was built on Native American sacred land that had been cursed. Before long, the old mine trains started racing around the mountain on their own without engineers or a crew. In 1980 this indoor/outdoor rollercoaster was opened to allow tourists to experience the wild ride that these possessed trains offer.
3. Kilimanjaro Safari – Animal Kingdom
Experience all the thrill and adventure of an African Safari without needing to remember your passport. While onboard the safari vehicle, you will feel like you are really in Africa. See safari animals such as elephants, hippos, wildebeasts, rhinos, and more! Make sure to have your camera at the ready to catch these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.
2. Haunted Mansion – Magic Kingdom
Enter if you dare into this spooky mansion that dates back to 1971. The Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square is home to the Ghost Host and 999 of his dearly departed friends. Travelling with little ones? No need to worry, these ghosts and ghouls are more merry than scary. So jump in your doom buggy and stop by for a visit.
1. Toy Story Mania - Hollywood Studios
Whats better than a Disney 4-D movie? Try a Disney 4-D interactive ride! Throw on some 3-D glasses and head to Andy’s room to test your skills with your spring-action shooter. Hope you’ve had your target practice. Feel the woosh of the air as your virtually flung objects fly through the air and watch out for the water balloons… they tend to pop and splash. Come back again and again to try for the day’s overall high score!
