Ever wonder to yourself, if I am headed to Magic Kingdom and can ONLY ride 3 rides, which would I chose? Read ON for my list…
Hey Guys, Perhaps this is just me, but often I am put in a situation where I am only going to a park for a few and have to narrow down my ride choices. But what if you can ride whatever you want, but can only ride 3, what would you do? Would you experience all your favorites? All the popular, hard to get rides? Would you ride rides from your childhood that perhaps make you the happiest? Here is my list of 3 Magic Kingdom rides/attractions I would do If I only got 3 at Disney World.
I love the Haunted Mansion, but I love it more and more being a mom. My daughter is SO amazed by this ride that it brings new joy to my life. I love the Not So Scary spookiness of it all. How it gives you a little fright at the very beginning, then leads you to your Doom Buggie through a cob-webby hallway of haunted portraits and art.. I am not sure how they managed to make a ride so eerie, yet almost happy at the same time. I especially love it knowing that parts of the ride were recreated from the famous Winchester Mystery House, which is in my home-town. Its very familiar and happy for me. Just remember to pay attention to the Grave Yard before the ride. Silly humor is my jam.
Pirates of the Caribbean:
Love, Love, Love the Pirates of the Caribbean. As I do prefer the original, before Jack Sparrow and before Redd the rum slinging pirate, I am in awe by the music; the song, the lyrics. The words chosen for the Yo, Ho, Yo Ho song are just amazing. I love “we’re devils and black sheep, really bad eggs”, “but we’re loved by our mommies and dads”. The magic and skill behind those words mixed with music made for a perfect, stuck in your head song. I would fall asleep to the park soundtrack as a kid and this was always my favorite. I also love being stopped in my boat during the burning, fire scene…the way they made those logs really look like they are burning, cracking and ready to fall still amaze me today.
Yep, I am one of those crazy fanatics that loves the super simple, super chill People Mover. Partly because I remember riding it as a kid with my Gramma (who is now passed) or I remember riding it with my daughter for the first time when she was 2 and just couldn’t stop smiling. We would get on, then off, then on again…riding like 3 times in a row. It has one of the best views of the castle and the park in general and it oddly whips you around corners and takes you inside Space Mountain, the ONE ride I refuse to ride. AND it never had a line, which made it even better. Of course the last few times I have been in Magic Kingdom, it did have a line. Once I waited like 35 mins for it, which is super crazy.
So…whats your list. If you could ride any 3 rides, BUT just those 3 – what would you pick?
