If you’re planning a Walt Disney World vacation, the amount of things to see and do can be daunting. More than likely you’ll have a list of your must do’s, the big stuff you can’t possibly miss, like Avatar Flight of Passage and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
But we want to shine the spotlight on a few attractions at Disney World that you may not have heard much about. After all, each attraction deserves its own time in the sun!
Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover — Magic Kingdom
If you look above you pretty much anywhere in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, you’ll spot the Peoplemover making its journey around the starport. This attraction is continuously loading, so while it does occasionally garner long lines, they move steadily. Once you board, you will essentially have a ten-minute leg break on a slow-moving ride through the other Tomorrowland attractions, including Space Mountain!
Riding the Peoplemover can also earn you some great views of the hub, Cinderella Castle, and the Happily Ever After fireworks show if you time it right, so keep those cameras handy!
Living with the Land — Land Pavilion, Epcot
Another attraction you can usually walk right on (or pretty close), Living with the Land is a slow-moving boat ride through the greenhouses where Disney grows some of the food for the parks! You’ll learn about experimental methods of agriculture such as vertical growing and hydroponics.
You’ll get some of that classic Epcot “edutainment” while also having a chance to rest your feet for about 14 minutes.
Maharajah Jungle Trek — Animal Kingdom
Your first instinct when you get to Animal Kingdom might be, “I need to get to Flight of Passage,” but you should take some time to enjoy the different animal trails around the park, like the Maharajah Jungle Trek. You’ll see varieties of bats, the komodo dragons, and, of course, the majestic tigers.
The great thing about this attraction is that you can take the trail at your own pace, and though you’ll be walking outside for a good portion of your trek, you can hang out inside the building next to the bat enclosure and rest for a spell.
Mickey’s PhilharMagic — Magic Kingdom
This 3D show in Fantasyland is usually a walk-on, but don’t let that fool you. Mickey’s PhilharMagic is still a fun and enjoyable show for all ages that combines some of your favorite Disney musical segments from Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and more.
The show’s effects could almost be considered 4D, with smells and water effects that are used throughout the show. Not only will you get to watch Donald bumble his way through classic Disney movies, you’ll be able to stretch your legs out in the theater seats and enjoy some comfortable air conditioning.
