As we approach another year at Walt Disney World, it time to have a look at our Top 5 Walt Disney World Must-Dos for 2020. We think 2020 is going to be one of the best years ever to Walt Disney World, and this is what we can’t wait to do when we arrive.
Number 5 Ride Big Thunder Mountain at Night
We only recently discovered that Big Thunder Mountain is a completely different ride at night. It is brilliant and is now a must-do whenever we visit the Magic Kingdom. If you have never ridden it at night, make it a must-do for 2020.
Number 4 Visit Toy Story Land, Pandora – The World of Avatar & Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
The three newest lands at Walt Disney World are each brilliant and are a must-do experience for all guests in 2020. Also, perhaps 2020 will be the year waits at Pandora will fall?
While the top of most guest lists will be visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, don’t skip Toy Story Land and Pandora – The World of Avatar they are both fantastic experiences.
Number 3 Visit Tom Sawyer Island
I have a confession, I have never visited Tom Sawyer Island. Every year it is on my list of things we must-do when visiting the Magic Kingdom, but we never seem to get time.
However, 2020 will be the year I eventually visit Tom Sawyer Island.
Number 2 Ride a New Attraction
There are going to be several minor new attractions at Walt Disney World in 2020, but there are two big E-Ticket Attractions opening. Both of these are attractions you will not want to miss and should be on your Must-Dos list for 2020.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Opening in Spring 2020 at Hollywood Studios will be the first attraction to star Mickey Mouse in any Disney Park. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will make guests part of a Mickey Mouse short.
Walt Disney World promises a uniquely special experience for their new toon attraction:
Once you step into the cartoon world of Mickey and Minnie, you’ll board a train with Goofy as the engineer. Then, one magical moment after the next leads you to a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns.Disney Parks Blog
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
Opening in Summer 2020 at Epcot is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. The attraction will be similar to the attraction which opened at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2014.
During the ride, you will shrink to the size of a rat for a 3D adventure causing mayhem in Gustav’s kitchen. We have ridden the attraction in Paris and we promise it will be a must-do experience for 2020.
Number 1 Complete the Disney’s Four Park Challenge
Last year we attempted to complete for the second time the Ultimate Resort Hopping Challenge. Although we managed to achieve more resorts than last time, we still failed miserably. Unfortunately, our Resort Hopping Challenge has not taken off, partly because it is impossible. However, we do challenge you to have a go.
A more popular pursuit had become Disney’s Four Park Challenge. The rules of the challenge do vary but generally consist of:
- A photo at the park entrance.
- 1-2 rides at each park.
- Meet a character at each park.
- Have a snack at each park
It certainly seems more straightforward than the Resort Hopping Challenge, but still great fun.
