The Best Disney World Attractions With The Shortest Wait Times

Did your favorites make the list?

Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is a popular vacation spot for people and families all over the world. One of the most stressful parts of planning the perfect vacation is trying to fit all of the things you want to do in one day. There are a lot of attractions and events to choose from, so here is a list of the best of the best. Here are some of the best Disney World attractions with the shortest wait times. Did your favorite make the list?

1. Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress

Located in The Magic Kingdom, this is one of my all-time FAVORITE rides. The average wait time is about 5-10 minutes, only because it is a rotating theatre, and guests have to wait for one section to be finished before boarding. Disney World just put a fresh coat of paint on the ride, and it looks better than ever, and that helped boost the popularity. During the ride, you will take a trip back in time to learn all about the changing American family during the 1900s, 1920s, 40s and in the future. This attraction is definitely a must-do for all the history buffs in your family.

2. Monster's Inc Laugh Floor

Also located in Disney's Magic Kingdom, guests can participate in this interactive live comedy show, starring some of your favorite stars from Monsters Inc.! The average wait time for this is around 25 minutes, which is very short by Disney standards! Step inside the laugh factory and make your way into a sprawling 400-seat comedy club. Before taking your seat, everybody’s favorite Monster of Ceremonies Mike Wazowski makes an appearance to explain just how the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor came to be. Once inside the Laugh Floor, sit back and prepare to chuckle till your sides split as the wisecracking Wazowski, skeptical manager Roz and some of the funniest monsters you’ve ever seen spring to life on a digital stage.Since the atmosphere in the comedy club is very improvisational, each show is a slightly different experience.

3. Spaceship Earth

This couldn't be a list of Disney rides without the iconic, Spaceship Earth in Epcot. This ride has an average wait time of about 10 minutes and it is totally worth it. Imagine going home to your friends and being like, "Yeah. I was inside the Epcot ball. NBD." The inside loading platform — aside from the occasional mandatory stop — is constantly moving. Go through the magical journey of the earth and be able to design your perfect world at the end. After you get off, make sure to stop by the iconic Bubble Gum wall for a photo. You can read more about that here.

4. Tomorrow Land Transit Authority (People Mover)

This is honestly one of the best rides to recharge on during a hot afternoon. My personal favorite thing to do is hop on this ride RIGHT after the Festival of Fantasy Parade at 3 p.m. in the Magic Kingdom. It gives me a chance to cool down after being in the sun for an hour, and a chance to edit my parade photos. This ride is also nice to get a tour of Tomorrow Land in the Magic Kingdom, and a fun time waster if you are waiting for your party to ride Space Mountian. I once hopped on while holding everyone's stuff! If you time it exactly right, you may even have a pretty great view of the fireworks at night!

5. The Enchanted Tiki Room

The Enchanted Tiki Room is located in Adventure Land of Disney's Magic Kingdom and it is such a fun attraction. This is another great show to watch to escape the Florida heat in the afternoon. I promise that if you see this show, you will have the music stuck in your head all afternoon. Which isn't a bad thing! After seeing the show, you can grab a tasty treat at Aloha Isle, home to the Dole Whip!

Learn Something Valuable From These 7 European Countries

When you are surrounded by chocolate, treat yourself.

America is a big country. So large that some parts of the country are so diverse they may as well be in different worlds, yet, American soil will always have one uniting factor: The American Dream. So, if we have an idea that enables synonymity in our vast country then that means that as different as some American counterparts may seem, we also share much of the same. This is why international travel is so important.

In fact, global traveling is more feasible then some may think, and can help shape your life in tremendous ways. So, here are seven life lessons there are to learn from those other international communities, specifically seven countries from Europe.

1. Spain: Be diverse in your choices

The Spanish are famous for their “tapas”. If you spend time in Spain then you will undoubtedly encounter this diversified little meal. Tapas are essentially small little plates (or tasters) of different dishes. This thereby encourages making choices that consist of variety, reinforcing to those who are creatures of habit to try something new!

2. England: Spend time outdoors

Take a trip to England and you will be surrounded by areas of preserved green space. When walking the streets of London you can expect every other block to be an area reserved for a small community park, not to mention the tremendously large parks in London, like Hyde Park. This dedicated space for outdoor enjoyment encourages people to get out of their homes and go move around in the parks.

3. Belgium: Treat yourself

Oh, the Belgium chocolate. Belgium is world renowned for having excellent, gourmet chocolate. Must I say any more? Treat yourself! With a chocolatier shop on every corner, it’s hard to miss.

4. The Netherlands: Exercise

When people think of Amsterdam, they often think of bicycles. Boy, is that true. Bicycles rule the road in the Netherlands, especially the populated city of Amsterdam. It is not uncommon to see elegantly dressed women, mothers with newborns, or toddlers cycling along the busy streets. Take a page from the Dutch way of life and try using your bicycle as your main mode of transportation.

5. Germany: Learn a foreign language

The German language is a bit abstract to English speakers. Which means if you do not speak German, then you will be playing charades to find your way through the German homeland. Some regions consist of seasoned English speakers, but do not plan on it. Take this as a mental note to learn a new language.

6. Italy: Eat good food

Italian food. Yum. The Italians know how to achieve high-quality life through their beautiful leisurely vacation destinations, fine art scene, and AMAZING FOOD. Take a trip to Italy, eat good food, and come home realizing you should treat your taste buds better then you have.

7. Denmark: Don’t take candy from strangers

Allow me to clarify something: the Danish are very sweet and kind people. Their candy will not actually cause damage to your body in terms of being toxic, but your taste buds will revolt unless you like salted black licorice.

8 Reasons A New York State Of Mind Is The Best, No Questions Asked

Billy Joel had the right idea.

I didn't realize how much being a New Yorker has impacted me. Growing up just outside the city has given me the freedom to take a day trip in whenever I want to experience the madness that is Manhattan, but it also lets me hide away in the comfort of the suburbs.

But, wherever I was, I was in New York. So, coming to college in Pennsylvania meant leaving all of that behind, but my New Yorker mentality stayed with me (thank god) and I've been able to see why people can easily guess where I'm from.

1. We walk with a PURPOSE.

I don't think I'll ever understand slow walkers. When I have to get somewhere, I don't see a point in taking my leisurely time to get there. Needless to say, slow walkers are the bane of my existence.

2. We understand boundaries.

Because NO ONE wants to have an awkward conversation full of small talk in the Starbucks line at 8 in the morning. Or at 3 p.m., or at night. New Yorkers let each other stand there in silence, and there's nothing wrong with that.

3. We give society every invention they didn't know they needed (like edible cookie dough).

You're welcome for every amazing food trend that's ever been created, cool pop up museums and architecture that's perfect for every Instagram picture.

4. We know how to keep a party going all night long.

Your bars close at 1 a.m.? Pshhhhhhhhh.

5. We know how to aggressively get what we want, in a good way (like hailing a taxi).

News flash for everyone else: no Taxi driver is going to drive up to the person kind of looking like they need a ride. They're going to give a ride to the person who aggressively risks their life by standing out in the street.

6. We created a city where it's nearly impossible to get lost.

It's a grid, so any person from any country can understand that.

7. We make the best food, no matter what it is.

Pizza. At all hours of the day. On any corner you want.

8. New Yorkers accept you, no matter who you are.

This is partially part because they don't want to talk to/get to know strangers, but New York accepts you for who you are because they've simply seen it all.
