Magic Kingdom; If I could only RIDE 3 rides.

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.

Haunted Mansion:

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.

We Wants the Redhead!!
People Mover:

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?

Disney Water Rides – Who’s Gonna get WET?

I love going to Disney, but sometimes…you just don’t wanna get wet. OR perhaps you do? READ for Disney World Water Rides.

Hey fans, with it being summer and very HOT where I am, I was thinking about all the rides at Disney, where you get wet. Sometimes I don’t mind, sometimes (in the winter) I avoid and sometimes I just pop on a poncho and enjoy. What water rides are your favorites? Enjoy this list of Disney World Water Rides.

Splash Mountain:

Ok, so its in the name, Splash…this is a clue that you might come out wet. The fun thing about this ride is…as the front passengers might get the most wet…it also depends on who is on the boat with you. So…do you get the most wet when the boat is heavier or lighter? I really have NO clue, but I do know that I am ALWAYS wet, its just my luck. You can also get wet from the back-splash from the sides…so you just never know. Avoiding the front isn’t always the answer.

Splash Mountain – Smile for the Camera!
Kali River Rapids:

Again…I am cheating with this one…Rapids??? It SO means water. But like Splash Mountain this ride can also can vary on who gets wet. Not only is it a heavier verses lighter situation, but the ride kinda spins and bumps against the sides of the ride scenery and you just never know what actual seat you will be in. You could be the front, back or sides. But again, I am always the one that gets wet, its my luck in life. And this ride is the worst kind of wet, you can get soaked down to the undies (oh joy). So wrap up your stuff and pop on a poncho…cause you might get SOAKED. And if you see me, stay away…I am always the wet one 😉

Frozen Ever After:

I love this ride!! Of course if you have seen my Frozen Ever After video, you will know that when I rode it for the FIRST time, I had NO idea that you could get wet. It’s more of a splash wet, but it was enough to dampen my outfit and make my shoes squeak, lol. It’s also more of a front row wet, so avoid the front if trying to stay dry.

Pirate’s of the Caribbean:

So…I think this is an accidental ride where you “might” get wet, but it happens. I think about every-time I board my ship, the floor is wet, probably from the fall (dip). But you can also get a splash from the canons that fire in the Pirate Ship WAR scene. Last time my lens got so wet I had to stop filming to wipe my lens, oops. This isn’t a reason to avoid this ride by any means…but…it could be considered a ride where you get wet.

Its a Small World:

This ride is a Disney classic “dark” ride where you 100% don’t get wet, lol. Gotcha!! For those that started reading this thinking…Nina is crazy, you don’t get wet on this ride. I know. Bazinga 🙂 Ok wait, I did once…my kid put her hands in the water and got me.
