Walt Disney World is one of the safest places to go on vacation thanks to many strict rules and regulations that Cast Members uphold and guests are expected to follow. While these rules are there to protect us, there are definitely some things I wish I could do if I were able to break all the rules and have unlimited access to the parks. From going into restricted backstage areas to exploring the inside of attractions, here are the thirteen things I would do with unlimited access to Walt Disney World!
13. Explore the Utilidors –
These underground passages are located all throughout the Magic Kingdom and are where Cast Members report for work, get ready, spend their breaks, and navigate the parks. While you can catch a quick glimpse of the Utilidors on the Keys To The Kingdom Tour, I would love to explore them with no restrictions! Imagine walking around down there and bumping into Cast Members in costume just hanging out or checking out certain areas like costuming. It would be awesome!
12. Pilot A Jungle Cruise Boat –
One of the first things I would do with unlimited access to Walt Disney World would be to pilot a boat on the Jungle Cruise and take my time navigating the attraction. I would work in my own corny jokes and love being able to introduce the back side of water!
11. Take Pictures with Attraction Characters –
With no restrictions, there would be nothing stopping me from taking pictures with some of the most iconic characters on attractions in the parks. Imagine taking a selfie with the Yeti on Expedition Everest, hanging out with the family from Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, or pretending to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo on Spaceship Earth. There would be so many fun photos to stage if there were no rules and I could access all parts of attractions.
10. Explore the Haunted Mansion –
I would love to wander around the Haunted Mansion on foot with the lights on and check out how all of the amazing effects are done. It would be pretty epic to walk around the ballroom scene amongst the dancing ghosts and scare some guests.
9. Spend the Night in the Tower of Terror –
One of my favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World is the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror specifically because of its intricate theme and amazing detail. It would be awesome to spend a night in the creepy lobby and have lots of time to get an up close look at all of the small details, including props from some of my favorite episodes of the original television show.
8. Ride the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Over and Over –
With unlimited access allowing me to not have to get back on line, I would totally ride the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith over and over again!
7. Explore Pandora – World of Avatar with No Crowds –
Pandora – The World of Avatar is the newest land in the Animal Kingdom theme park. Besides the floating mountains and cascading waterfalls, you will find two extremely popular attractions known as Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey. Outside of these two attractions, the land is almost like an attraction itself with stunning beauty and ability to interact with guests… especially as it glows at night with glowing walkways and on the unbelievable glowing Pandoran plants. We just wish we could explore it and go on the attractions without the packed crowds!
6. Swim with the Dolphins –
Over in Epcot’s The Seas with Nemo and Friends, I would dive right in and swim with the dolphins in the aquarium for hours on end. It would be amazing to spend tons of time learning about the dolphins, interacting with them, and feeding them.
5. Get A Sneak Peak of New Things –
With unlimited access, I would explore areas of the parks that are currently being refurbished and aren’t open to guests yet. I would love to check out the new area of Hollywood Studios that’s being transformed into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and inside the Chinese Theater for a sneak peek at Mickey Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Getting a sneak peak at new experiences would be awesome!
4. Also Ride Slinky Dog Dash Over and Over Again –
Yes, we’d want to ride Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster over and over again – but when we needed a break from the speed and flips, we’d head over to Toy Story Land. Slinky Dog Dash is a great family-friendly coaster that is easily a favorite after just one ride! Have a blast with smooth dips and turns, with the breeze in your hair… just don’t forget to look around at all the awesome sights you’ll see across Andy’s toy-filled backyard. Finally, pull in for a stop to hear the sweet audio-animatronic Wheezy the Penguin singing for all the Slinky Dog Dash guests to enjoy. Once is never enough on Slinky Dog! We’d love to ride this one over and over again.
3. Eat in Every Disney Restaurant –
With no rules set in place, I would make it a mission to eat in every Disney restaurant without a reservation. Imagine how awesome it would be to just walk up to The California Grill right before Happily Ever After and automatically get a table against the windows!
2. Spend Unlimited Time On Safari –
I would love to be able to have a private tour of the savannah and other areas on Kilimanjaro Safaris. I could spend an entire afternoon just stopping close to animals like the elephants, cheetahs, and lions and observing their behaviors. There would be some amazing photo opportunities with unlimited access to the Harambe Reserve.
1. Drive the Monorail –
To cap off what I would do with unlimited access to Walt Disney World, I would take a loop around Epcot while driving the monorail. It would be awesome to see the park below from the front of the monorail and to be able to slow down to get a closer look at anything I wanted!
