The Best of Disney World

There are some things that you just should not miss at the Disney World parks. Here are a few of my favorites.

Let’s start at Epcot. Epcot has never been much on the ride circuit, but that has all changed with Test Track and Mission Space. These are probably two of the best rides in the entire Disney World park. Do not miss them. Also, just traveling through the different countries represented in Epcot is great. The Mexican restaurant is great, as is the one in Japan. They are my absolute favorites.

MGM Studios’ great thrill rides are the Rockin Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror. On the Tower of Terror, they use a different drop sequence each time, which means that you never know how many times it is going to pick you up and drop you. Disney World still has the greats, like It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan, and best of all, Space Mountain, that famous roller coaster in the dark. Don’t miss the fireworks over Cinderella's Castle at night, and the parades are great.

The great thing at the Animal Kingdom is the safari ride. Seeing all those animals in their natural habitat in the middle of Orlando is something else. Be sure to plan enough time to catch some of the shows at each park.
