The Magic Kingdom is the most popular theme park in the world. It has some fantastic attractions. However; not all attractions are the same. If you are only there for a day it is highly unlikely you will manage to do everything. Here are 5 attractions to skip the Magic Kingdom if you have limited time.
Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
Live video animation is very clever but this show is a bit dull.
Turtle Talk with Crush at Epcot is a similar idea but much more entertaining.
Country Bear Jamboree
A place to escape the heat is the main positive of this audio-animatronic show. Featuring a selection of dancing & singing bears.
It is a Classic Disney attraction but so was Mr Toad’s Wild Ride. It is dated and there are better classic attractions remaining.
4D Film in Fantasyland. Much better 4D films exist elsewhere. The film is quite blurry and the special effects are very limited.
However; kids do tend to enjoy, there rarely is a wait and the theatre is cool. If time in Disney World is short Muppets 4D & It’s Tough to Be a Bug are all better 4D options.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Last year we had Stitch’s Great Escape in our list of attractions to skip. Currently, this attraction is open seasonally & perhaps currently permanently closed. We, therefore, needed to add a new attraction to this list.
Enter The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
There is nothing wrong with this ride but is it better than Dumbo or AstroOrbiter? If you are short on time I would skip it.
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
I thought I would make my last choice a little controversial. I know most people love this ride but personally, I find it very underwhelming.
Easier and less controversial choices would have included Hall of Presidents & The Enchanted Tiki Room.
However; I have never got Buzz Lightyear. I’m rubbish at it and I find it a bit daft. Also, the laser guns are better in the Paris version which adds to the overall disappointment of The Magic Kingdom version.
I would never miss it if I never rode again & it tops my list of Attractions to Skip at The Magic Kingdom.
