Not only does Kilimanjaro typically have a longer wait than the rest of the attractions in the park, but the queue is also entirely outside, and though it is themed ...

3. Sorcerers of the Magic KingdomSorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is the interactive card game that takes guests on a scavenger hunt of sorts to different portals throughout the park to defeat Disney villains. The game is fairly similar to battling Pokémon cards, though I would argue that it’s much more interactive. I think that Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom ...

4. Underrated restaurantsIn my opinion, there is a good amount of underrated restaurants at Walt Disney World. For starters, I would say that Kona Café at the Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian Café at the Grand Floridian, are vastly underrated, especially by guests who are not staying at those resorts. When you’re booking your dining reservations, spend some time going ...

5. Street performersStreet performers are most often overlooked by guests in the theme parks because they miss their performances in favor of rushing to rides instead. Unlike some amusement parks you might be familiar with, Disney is not all about rides. Disney is a theme park, not an amusement park. A theme park immerses the guests into theming so elaborate ...

7. Water parksWhile devout Disney fans will usually make time for the water parks, it sometimes takes people a couple of trips to actually getting around to doing them.

8 Things I Must Do at Every Walt Disney World Trip

1. See the fireworksI’d like this to say, “see Wishes,” but depending on the trip seeing Wishes isn’t always possible, so I’ll be realistic and say “see the fireworks.” Wishes is my all-time favorite nighttime spectacular. I absolutely try to make it to Wishes at least once per trip, but if this doesn’t happen (generally if it’s just a short ...

2. Favorite ridesMy favorite rides in each park are the Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom, Spaceship Earth in Epcot, the Great Movie Ride in Hollywood Studios, and Dinosaur in Animal Kingdom.
