The 6 Best Rides At Disney World

The 6 Best Rides At Disney World From An Orlando Local

An analysis of Disney World's best attractions from someone who doesn't like adrenaline rushes.

Disney World

Hello, my Disney lovers! I love Disney more than I'll ever love my future children…just kidding…maybe… Anyway, Disney World will always reign superior to Disney Land, and if you're thinking about making a trip to the happiest place on earth, you definitely need to ride these attractions. To save you some time, these are the best six rides at Disney World, that fast passes are a must for, and riding them more than once is necessary!


DINOSAUR ride DINOSAUR located in Animal Kingdom.Disney

This ride may come off as a surprise to many people and some of you may never have heard of this fabulous ride. DINOSAUR is one of the best, most underrated rides at Disney World! Tucked away in Animal Kingdom's Dinoland, this ride is full of thrills, as you are taken back in time to save a dinosaur from going extinct. Not going to spoil it, but there may or may not be an unexpected drop that makes my day every time I ride it. I love how DINOSAUR is a creative concept by Disney, unlike some of Disney's newer ride systems. Seriously though, if you guys keep sleeping on this ride, I will be very upset. I want Disney to give DINOSAUR the praise it deserves.

5. Spaceship Earth.

Note Spaceship Earth, not Mission Space. This is completely biased, and I've had friends and relatives I've had to disown because they thought this ride was boring. Every Disney fanatic knows that Spaceship Earth is tucked inside the "giant golf ball" in Epcot. This ride travels you back in time and allows you take in some of the world's most historical communication moments. Spaceship Earth always makes me super emotional and I still have no idea why. Keep doing you Spaceship Earth.

4. Kilimanjaro Safaris.

Kilimanjaro Safaris Kilimanjaro Safaris located in Animal Kingdom.Disney

Another severely underrated Disney attraction! Kilimanjaro Safaris, located inside of Animal Kingdom, allows you to see some of the world's most beautiful creatures up close and personal. The tour guides are also entertaining and funny, and the animals are extremely majestic as they're given space to roam in a pseudo-safari. The wait is always short, and it's great to ride in the morning as the animals are very active during this time.

3. Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover.

PeopleMover PeopleMover located in Magic Kingdom.Disney

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, also known simply as the PeopleMover, should be number one on this list, but I know there would be a huge outcry from roller coaster enthusiasts, so I had to lower it. Personally, coming from someone who is not the biggest fan of roller coasters, this is the best ride in Disney World. What does it do you ask? It moves you. I think I like the calmness of the ride, I'm so lame.

2. Haunted Mansion.

The Haunted Mansion The Haunted Mansion located in Magic Kingdom.Disney

For all of my spooky lovers out there, this does not disappoint! The Haunted Mansion has some of the most in theme cast members, and you always notice something new about the ride every time you go on it or while you're waiting in line. The Haunted Mansion always gives me goosebumps, and I could ride it a hundred times and still be completely fascinated by everything.

1. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Rock 'n' Roller Coaster located in Hollywood Studios.Disney

Okay, adrenaline lovers, here you go. You win this time. The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is like an extreme version of Space Mountain. In less than three seconds the coaster goes from 0 to 57 mph, and your heart feels like it's going to give out. The coaster is set in the dark, and you're listening to blood pumping music while you're twisted and turned and tossed upside down. For someone who hates roller coasters, this ride has my stamp of approval, but I also promise it's not lame.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.
