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!

7 Signs You're From the 732

Only the best part of New Jersey.

If you're from New Jersey, you know how badly the state's looked down upon by outsiders (thanks a lot, Jersey Shore). But you know that all of those false accusations aren't true- the Garden State is your home and only you're allowed to make fun of it. Although Jersey's small, there are different regions and everyone thinks that their's is the best. Here are seven signs you're from the 732, AKA the best part of Jersey:

1. You know that Central Jersey is a place.

One of the biggest arguments is whether or not Central Jersey exists. I live in the middle of New Jersey, so it's pretty funny when people say it's not a real place. I'm not from South Jersey, and definitely not from North Jersey. Also, it's close to both Philadelphia and New York, not just one or the other. Perfect location.

2. Everywhere you go, you see a Wawa.

Legit everywhere, and you go there 24/7. All hail the holy grail.

3. Surf Taco means a lot to you.

Every time I come home from being away at school the first place I go to eat with my friends is Surf Taco. Even when I am home, Surf Taco's always on my mind. Who doesn't love a good taco with chips? P.S. I highly recommend their Teriyaki Chicken Taco, you won't regret it.

4. You go to all the summer concerts.

There's really nothing more fun than summer shows outside, and you already know that PNC Bank Arts Center and Stone Pony Summer Stage are the hot-spots. 'Tis the season of tailgating and enjoying a good show with your friends.

5. Two words: Pork. Roll.

I don't care what Chris Christie has to say, it's pork roll. Quite honestly, Taylor Ham just doesn't sound right. And what's better than a pork roll egg n' cheese on your favorite bagel? Nothing.

6. You live close to the beach...

Spring Lake, Manasquan, Asbury, you name it. You know these areas and where all of the good food spots are in each of them. Living so close to the beach makes for the perfect summers, but with summer comes the bennies.

7. ...So you can easily spot a benny.

If you're from Jersey and you don't know what a benny is, you most likely are one. Bennies usually come in packs; they bring lawn chairs and tents to the beach, wear socks and sandals, and have the "Jersey accent" because they're either from New York or close to.

Tempe City Council Makes An Effort To Hear The Public's Concerns

The rising number of homeless in Tempe is concerning for many residents and here's why.


Many concerned Tempe residents voiced that it is not the homeless people trying to get back on their feet that concern them. It is the rising group of homeless drug addicts causing havoc and endangering their neighborhoods does.

Randy Keating and Robin Arredondo-Savage, two members of the Tempe City Council, met with concerned residents on Tuesday at the Multigenerational Center to discuss the rise of homelessness in the area.

Tempe police chief Sylvia Moir assured the public that the police department is doing all it can to make sure their opinions are heard.

"We have to recognize that sleeping is a basic human right, even when it comes to our parks. If the shelters don't have space, the person still needs to sleep somewhere. With that being said, the homeless will have a curfew enforced and will be held accountable for their actions," Moir said.

Suzanne Orarke, a Tempe resident and mother voiced her opinion on why the rising number of drug addicted and mentally unstable homeless people concerns her.

"I have an 8-year-old son and he rides his bike to school every day. I don't want to be a helicopter parent, but at the same time, I also don't want to lose my child to something stupid," Orarke said.

Keating and Arredondo-Savage assured the public that the City Council works with the police department and the Homeless Outreach Prevention Effort team, also known as the HOPE team to find solutions to the homelessness in Tempe. The Councilmembers informed the audience that Tempe spends the most money of any Arizona city on human services.

The Councilmembers reminded the public that homelessness is not a crime and that they are doing their best to accommodate to the rising number of homeless people, which has gone up 60 percent in Maricopa County the last two years.

Another homeless related issue that many residents have noticed is the dangerous use of Lime scooters in their neighborhoods. Lime is a California-based company known for its easily accessible scooters.

The scooters, which run for 15 cents per minute, have increasingly made their way into the East Valley. The scooters have made it easier for the homeless to travel with little to no cost. Many residents believe this is attracting them to their neighborhoods.

When asked about scooter regulations, Keating said, "There is not much regulation for these scooters yet, but there is a working group striving to regulate those as we recognize this is an issue. We are looking over the list of recommendations next Thursday. As of right now, the only regulation is that the scooters cannot be on sidewalks."

The last major issue the public spoke on is the lack of helpful and respectful assistance from the police department and their non-emergency hotline. Many residents recalled their experiences when calling the non-emergency hotline and each resident had a negative outcome.

Steve Geiogamah, a concerned Tempe resident, relived his experience with the non-emergency hotline as he explained what took place a few nights ago.

"I've started to see a rise in drug activity among the homeless in Tempe. One night, I saw a transient in the neighborhood, who looked like they were up to no good. I called the non-emergency line and asked them to send an officer," Geiogamah said. "The next morning, I saw nothing had been done. I called dispatch again and they said that they could not send an officer even though I was concerned about the issue taking place."

Moir took responsibility for the hotlines wrongdoings and ended the meeting by saying, "If there are behaviors that you observe among the homeless, that rise to the level where you need a police officer, call the non-emergency number. Or, if it's immediate or a real serious issue, call 911. Describe the person and request an officer. The expectation is that we trace the call and that an officer responds."
