Top rides & attractions at Magic Kingdom

It's a Small World ride at Walt Disney World's Magic KingdomMagic Kingdom has the most diverse selection of rides and attractions of any of the parks at Walt Disney World. Whether you’re into thrill rides, kiddie rides, or prefer to sit and watch a show, Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park will keep you entertained for hours and hours- if not days!

Here is a look at our picks for top rides & attractions at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

Space Mountain at Disney's Magic Kingdom- an out of this world roller coaster!Space Mountain

No trip to Magic Kingdom would be complete without a couple of trips on this perennial favorite. While certainly not up to the thrill level of some of today’s super-coasters, Space Mountain is unique in that it is entirely indoors and completely dark throughout the ride. Except for the star fields of course! Although this coaster barely tops 30 mph, the fact that it’s in the dark makes it seem much faster. The excitement of not knowing whether you climb, dip, or twist and turn keeps you guessing and definitely adds to the thrill.


Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disney's Magic KingdomBig Thunder Mountain Railroad

Watch out as this rickety runaway train comes barreling down Thunder Mountain! You’ll zoom through an abandoned mining town as the train pulls your mine car through a series of hills and turns. This ride is pretty bumpy so those with back or neck trouble may want to steer clear. Those brave enough to tackle Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will have as much fun enjoying the scenery as they will the ride itself!

Splash Mountain ride at Walt Disney World's Magic KingdomSplash Mountain

Based on an obscure tale, Song of the South, this ride is nonetheless pretty entertaining. You’ll ride the rapids as you go into the mountain, seeing animatronic characters acting out various scenes from the movie. The music will have you tapping your toes and humming along throughout the ride, and the animation is delightful. There are a few dips along the way that will tickle your tummy, but nothing too scary. Then...you get to the end.... and the big SPLASH! Fun, a little scary, and a great way to cool off!


Blast aliens in Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at Disney's Magic KingdomBuzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

We ride this one a couple of times each time we visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Nothing scary, it’s just plain fun! You and a partner will blast aliens as you ride in a little space car around a track that winds through high-tech, futuristic scenes. The moving scenery has targets on it that you can blast for points with your laser. One person usually steers the car while the other one shoots. It’s fun to compete against others in your party to see who gets the highest score!
