    We love Epcot but you need a full day to really get the benefit of the world showcase. If you’ve never travel this is a great way to see highlights of the world,

    I hadn't heard of this experience before my mum mentioned wanted to go on it for our recent trip, I'm am amateur photographer and loved the idea or being able the get up close with some of the animals and get to see a different perspective to normal animal Kingdom safari.

    The experience was 100% worth it and I would recommend to anyone who loves animals. The food was fantastic. Our guides Kit and Daniel were so friendly and knowledgeable about the animals we saw.

    I absolutely love the photos they took of us too. 😍

    Unlike many of the rides in the vicinity, Soarin’ is way more exciting. The ride simulates you flying over numerous world landmarks and beautiful scenery. The ride will leave your feet dangling. If you have loose-fitting shoes, you can leave them on the floor at the start of the ride as the ride will return to the same spot at the end. There is a net under each seat to place your belongings; do make sure your items are fully in the net as your seat will be lifted in the air during the ride. We used Lightning Lane for this ride, but still had a 15-minute wait to get in, though better than the hour plus wait on the regular line.

    It’s the perfect ride for a Aerosmith fan! It is fast and does go upside down a lot. Make sure you prepare for the send off as it shoots off fast!

    We've loved this attraction since the beginning and just came back from experiencing it again for the first time since 2016. Everyone in our little extended family on on board with this one as we keep bringing the youngest members who have never been there before. This is the hotel experience of a lifetime!

    I have to say that this was about the longest we ever waited in line for Tower of Terror but that really didn't diminish the thrill in the end. When we got to the actual boarding area, we found that only one set of elevators was in operation because the other set was undergoing maintenance.

    This ride is my favorite! Definitely the best roller coaster at the disney world parks. If you like thrilling rides, this is a must. We went to Animal Kingdom on a busy day during a school break but the wait wasn’t bad. We waited about 40 minutes during the middle of the day, then went on again during the evening when the wait was only about 15-20 minutes. I love not just the ride, but the queue as well. There are many cool things to see while waiting in line. Expedition Everest is a Disney classic, if you’re at Animal Kingdom you need to go on this ride!

    I honestly didn’t know what too rate this attraction. Either a 5 star or 1 star. I’m rating it a 5 right now because it’s iconic, it special, & one of the greatest ride ever.

    Once or if the re-theme happens, it will forever be a 1 star. In fact, I wouldn’t even give it a star, because that’s how bad it’s gonna be. If Disney is stupid enough to re-theme this iconic attraction then they are beyond lost. It’s really sad that a company as of right now so ignoring the majority that love Splash Mountain and pandering to 1% Cancel Culture. Leave Splash alone. This re-theme has failure written all over it. Build PATF a new attraction somewhere else.

    This was one of the most fun and interactive rides I took at Hollywood Studios. Each vehicle seats 4 people, but you’ll be sitting back to back in pairs. In front of you is a toy gun that you’ll be using to shoot at targets throughout the ride. You’ll have a practice round first before going through a variety of games that generally involve shooting at stationary or moving targets with varying points. You will be presented a point total at the end; don’t forget to snap a picture of it!

    While the ride is stationary during each game, you will be jerked around a bit while moving in between games. As expected, the line for this ride can get long.

    Big Thunder Mountain is one of the most underrated WDW rides! The wait can get kind of long on busy days but if you time it right, you won’t wait more than 30-40 minutes. My whole family loves this roller coaster, we make sure to ride it every time we are in Magic Kingdom. One of my favorites!

    My favourite ride at the ‘Magic Kingdom’ (by quite a distance). I remember sitting in that seat (rocket) for the first time when I was a 90’s kid and the nostalgia came flooding back all these years later.

    I managed to experience it twice (although i’ll have to add that both rides seemed different). Still very much as I remember it - the long but interesting queue, the tight squeeze to get beneath the restraint bar and that amazing ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ feel at the start. All masked in darkness with loops (not upside down) and sudden drops.

    It’s not the perfect rollercoaster but I love that it has stood the test of time and still offers the thrills you’d expect. Definitely up there with some of the best indoor attractions i’ve experienced. I hope it’s popularity continues throughout the upcoming years!

    This is a classic ride that has stood the test of time and is my all time fav of ALL Disney rides. Pay attention to the detail in this ride to really appreciate it. The illusions are very simple, but extremely effective - pure engineering genius. If you have one ride to do in the park - this is the one.

    Super fun ride. Provided a wonderful view of Orlando. I loved the ride and am fortunate to not get sick on amusement park rides.

    It’s been forever since my first Star Tours ride. The layout of the ride is the same, consisting of a motion simulator in a room filled with around 30 others. The footage has been updated to include characters from episodes VII-IX while still incorporating C3PO and R2D2. Have read the footage is randomized but can’t confirm as I only did the ride once. Overall, despite its age and the all the newer Star Wars rides, this is still a fun ride that any Star Wars fan would not want to miss.

    The ride is not in Galaxy’s Edge, but near it. Wait times were relatively low for the ride, usually between 15-30 minutes in early December when we visited.

    Design your own car and take it for a spin around the test track. Great concept, and good thinking to get something to do while in line for the actual ride.

    The ride itself is perfect if you like high speeds, but are not that into the big climbs and downhills of rollercoasters. It's not too intense, but enough for me to get that big smile on my face during the high speed part at the end.

    Be aware of long lines, go directly here if you have it on your priority list.
