10,000 Disney Fans Voted on the BEST Rides in Magic Kingdom — Here are the Winners!

When it comes to Magic Kingdom, it’s not just the atmosphere that makes your vacation magical!

Along with the characters and the treats, the attractions are one of the biggest pulls for fans of all ages! However, since Magic Kingdom is divided up into Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, and Liberty Square, there are just SO many attractions to choose from during your visit.

We recently asked our readers on the AllEars Instagram page to vote on their favorite attractions in the Magic Kingdom. And, we received over 10,000 votes from everyone to tally up the winners in the park!

If you’re going to think of the one classic ride that most theme parks have, it’s some sort of carousel! But, the Magic Kingdom technically has two (even if one of them isn’t really much of a merry-go-round). When we put the Carousel of Progress and the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel head-to-head, it was clear you were more in favor of a “great big beautiful tomorrow” on the former!

Some of the Magic Kingdom’s attractions are not only meant to be a blast, but they’re also meant to entertain you with a song and dance! And, it looks like the macaws and toucans are making you want to shake your tail feathers a bit more than the Country Bears since the Enchanted Tiki Room won at 63% over the Country Bear Jamboree.

Spinny rides are all the rage, but we narrowed it down to a quick ride and a slower ride (since spinny rides don’t have to be fast). While we have a special place for the Mad Tea Party‘s wild ride, our readers preferred the views as they soared above Fantasyland on Dumbo the Flying Elephant.


The Magic Kingdom’s attractions aren’t just based on land and air, but you can also sail across waters too! And, yo-ho, it’s a pirate’s life for us since the Pirates of the Caribbean won in a landslide (waterslide??) with 79% of the votes over the Jungle Cruise.

When you put the story-based The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Under the Sea – The Journey of The Little Mermaid up against one another, it’s way too hard to choose which one is the best. While there are Tigger and Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood, Sebastian and Flounder are chilling out under the sea with Ariel.

But, we guess things are better down where it’s wetter since The Little Mermaid barely pulled ahead with 57% vs. Winnie the Pooh’s 43% of the vote.

Two of the Magic Kingdom’s iconic attractions were recently refurbished with the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train switching the original Snow White dark ride for a coaster and Peter Pan’s Flight adding a bit more interactive magic to the queue and ride. But, it seems like the coaster fans have won this round since the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train cruised on ahead as the winner!

If there are two songs from the Magic Kingdom that we hum on repeat, it’s “Grim Grinning Ghosts” and “it’s a small world.” And, our AllEars readers thought they’d rather head to the ghost part of town with the Haunted Mansion taking a huge portion of the votes over it’s a small world!

Space might be the final frontier (whoops, wrong franchise), but you chose Space Mountain as the ultimate galactic destination over Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin!

There are a whole lot of mountains in Disney World, but our readers had a VERY hard time choosing between Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. But, the coaster fans pulled ahead once again with Big Thunder winning with a slight lead of 55% over Splash Mountain with 45% of the vote!

Lastly, we wrapped up our poll by asking everyone: What is the ONE BEST ride in the Magic Kingdom?

Although all sorts of attractions in the Magic Kingdom received votes, the winners were VERY clear within the answers we received from fans. The top three picks were (drum roll please):

3. Space Mountain

The hyperspace tunnel really sells us every time we ride Space Mountain. And, it looks like everybody else feels the same about blasting off into space as we do since Space Mountain secured its spot as the 3rd place winner.

2. Splash Mountain

Big Thunder Mountain may have won in a versus match, but Splash Mountain snagged that popular vote with Disney fans with a second place victory! (Zip-a-dee-doo-dah!)

1. Haunted Mansion

Oh, so you must really like those hot-and-cold running chills… huh, Ghost Hosts? The Haunted Mansion won first place, making it the fan-favorite (and most wicked) spot to visit in all of the Magic Kingdom!

Of course, there are more parks to visit and attractions to choose from in Disney World! So, we’ll catch you next time when we put our readers to the test on which attractions are their favorite in the parks!

  1. We always visit the Haunted Mansion and it’s our #1. For those who showed thumbs down to the Country Bears, perhaps you just don’t understand the humor.
