While reading another blog, LisaLDN.com (a great travel blog amongst other things, including lots of Disney related stuff), I came across a fascinating post. In this post, Lisa attempted to answer the following question:
If Disney World was on fire, which 5 attractions would you save?
It sounds like something almost impossible to answer, but I’ve decided to give my best try to answering this question anyway. There are way more than 5 I’d like to save, but if I have to choose these are the ones I would want around the most:
1. Kilimanjaro Safaris
Aside from the fact that I’d be saving the lives of animals and all that, Kilimanjaro Safari is one of my favorite Disney World attractions. One of the things that I love about it is how it is different every time because of the animals. Plus, the opportunity to get to see giraffes and elephants and the like up close is just so unique. I love taking photos and this Disney attraction is a great opportunity to do that.
2. Splash Mountain
I usually give this as my answer when asked for my favorite ride at Disney World. It feels very well balanced to me – it’s thrilling but not heart-poundingly so. It has a fun story with great music, and it gets you wet but not (usually) soaked. To me it shows what Disney does best: take a typical attraction like a log flume, and turn it into a one of a kind experience.
3. Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
For many people this would probably be the biggest “surprise” on this list of Disney World attractions. I know it’s not a super popular one, but it’s definitely one of our favorites. I feel like it has a good amount of repeatability thanks to the nature of the show. My husband and I just find it hilarious and we usually go at least twice on every trip.
This was a really tough call between Soarin’ and Test Track. They are both great rides, but I feel like Soarin’ is the more unique experience. It is just exhilarating to feel like you’re flying over California. Now that they’ve announced they are going to update the film to Soarin’ around the World I think it will be even better!
5. Expedition Everest
I’m a big fan of roller coasters, and I really do think this one is probably my favorite roller coaster I’ve ever been on. It has a good level of excitement and thrills, but it’s not so scary that I get nervous when I ride on it. Plus, I think the themeing is really cool both on the ride and in the queue.
Phew, that was really hard! And I know there are probably some others I missed that I might regret not picking when I look back. If you absolutely had to pick a top 5 of Disney attractions, which ones would you choose?
