We love Disney rides — especially when we get to participate in the story!
Interactive Disney World attractions are so, so much fun. Whether we’re shooting aliens with Buzz or flying the Millennium Falcon, we tend to have a blast. But which of these rides is the most fun?
Here’s our definitive ranking of the interactive rides at Disney World!
We’re categorizing any interactive ride as an attraction where you physically participate in the ride — more than just spinning a teacup on Mad Tea Party or moving a lever on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. And we’re ranking them on how fun those interactions are, not necessarily the ride as a whole.
Coming in last place is Tomorrowland Speedway. Sure, it’s fun in theory to drive a little car, but the smell of gas and heavy pedals make this ride a little less pleasant than we want it to be.
Though Mission: SPACE can be fun, it’s still not high on our list due to its motion-sickness-inducing movement and the fact that your interaction doesn’t much affect the ride.
Over in Magic Kingdom we have our fourth place attraction with Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. We love defeating Zurg at Buzz’s side, but this attraction feels a little dated compared to a certain other shooter attraction. More on that in a sec!
Alright, to the top three! In third place we have EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth. The interactive portion of this attraction lets you plan your future and shows a little clip of you experiencing futuristic technologies. It’s been around for a while, but we’re giving this ride some serious points for how creative the interaction is!
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is our runner up for a few reasons. There are different positions with different controls, and your actions actually affect the ride! Have you ever had a successful run?
In first place, we’ve got to have Toy Story Mania! This attraction combines the classic fun of a shooter with awesome technology to create a seriously fun experience. Careful though, you might leave this one with a tired arm!
