The Magic Kingdom is the most popular theme park in the world. It has some fantastic attractions. However; not all the attractions are the same. If you are only there for a day, it is unlikely you will manage to do everything. Here are 5 Attractions to Skip at 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.
You will not dislike Monsters, In. Laugh Floor but you will not remember much about it.
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.
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.
Mickey’s PhilarMagic is a 4D Film in Fantasyland but better 4D films exist elsewhere. The film is quite blurry and the special effects are very limited. I recently visited Disneyland Paris and their new version of Philarmagic is much clearer.
However; kids do enjoy the show, 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.
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
I thought I would make my last choice a little controversial. Easier and less controversial choices would have included Hall of Presidents & The Enchanted Tiki Room.
I know most people love this ride, but I find it very underwhelming. Mrs Modernlifeisgood love Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and the regular long lines suggest everybody else does too.
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.
