We all love attractions at Walt Disney World. They take the real stars of your whole trip. Maybe taking a spin on the teacups or a ride on the thrilling Expedition Everest. Whatever sounds appealing to you, we all love attractions!
I feel that there are certain attractions that get ¨too much¨ love. There are also some that don´t get enough of it. When I say overrated, I don´t mean you shouldn´t ride it. I just say that the expectation is higher than it should be. So, without being said these are my overrated and underrated, well everything!
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train: I am starting it off in the wonderful Magic Kingdom. Seven Dwarfs is a mine train attraction geared towards the whole family. It is a must do every time I take a trip but the reason why it is on my overrated list is that some people are willing to wait over 2 hours. I admit I have waited that long for it once. But, I will never do it again. There are so many things to do, and waiting two hours is not one of the things I want to do.
Cinderellas Royal Table: So, this one is a bit more controversial. The main reason why it is on my overrated list is the number of people willing to pay $50 per person or two table service credits to just eat in the castle. I am sure eating in the castle would sound cool, but it is not worth two table service credits for me. So, therefore, I see this restaurant as overrated.
Flight of Passage: I may get hate messages for this one, but Flight of Passage is just crazy. It is the whole Animal Kingdom craze right now along with Na´vi River Journey. River Journey isn´t that bad. As long as you get to Animal Kingdom at opening River Journey won´t have that long of a wait. However, Flight of Passage as I am writing this has a four-hour wait. Ok so, it looks like a really cool ride. But, absolutely not that cool.
Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin: This one is really, just, not that good of a ride. So basically this is the worse version of Toy Story but I hate putting this on the overrated list because I am actually good at this one compared to Toy Story Mania. I just wouldn´t wait an hour for it. I think if it was under 30 minutes I would wait. However, an hour it just not worth it.
Toy Story Midway Mania: I hate putting this on here as well because I love this ride even though I am horrible at shooting targets. However, the hype is really too high for what it actually is. I think Tower of Terror is ten times better than this but it always has a shorter wait. Therefore Toy Story makes my overrated list.
Illuminations: Reflections of Earth: I knew I had to include something from Epcot. I just couldn´t decide what to include. I decided to go for their nighttime spectacular, Illuminations. The reason for this is because if you want a FastPass for a decent view you need to use a Tier 1 FastPass. Which in my opinion is ridiculous because you can get a very similar view from the sides. Even if it was Tier 2, I would still not get it. I think it is just a waste. But, that is my opinion.
Fantasmic!: This is in Hollywood Studios. Once again, the reason why it is on my overrated list is that of the fact that to get a FastPass for it, you have to get it from Tier 1. Therefore, Fantasmic! is very much overrated.
I did have a lot of overrated attractions but I do have a fair share of underrated attractions and others as well.
PeopleMover: This is probably one of my favorite attractions in Magic Kingdom. I am not sure why. There is never a wait. I mean like never. It is so soothing and relaxing. It just takes you on a tour around Tomorrowland. You can even bring babies on it if you wanted to. It is not scary at all. Very cool ride!
Frozen Ever After: I cannot believe this is on my underrated list. Frozen is such a cool ride! I am checking the waits right now. It is a weekend and it is noon over there. Twenty-five minute wait. That is nothing… I am baffled. So, some people say that the expectation was just too high. I disagree. I think it brought what we thought it would. I just love Frozen Ever After. Unless you have little kids, I don´t recommend getting a FastPass for it.
The Seas With Nemo & Friends: This is a ride that takes you along with Nemo in many adventures. I love this ride so much. It is always a five to ten-minute wait and the technology within the ride is so cool! This ride always shocks me even though I have ridden it a bazillion times.
Dinosaur!: This ride has recently had a fall in popularity and I love it! It is absolutely a must do for me and the animatronics are so realistic and amazing. I couldn´t tell you how much I have loved Dinosaur! since I have first ridden it. I really recommend you ride it too.
Primeval Whirl: This one is very controversial. There are so many people that think this ride needs to go. I disagree. I have had so many great memories of it. It may just be a wild mouse coaster, however, when you actually get to ride it, it is filled with magic. I would always recommend Primeval Whirl, always!
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: This one is iffy at some points as it is either underrated or where it should be wait wise. However, when it does get that ten-minute wait, I am shocked. This ride is so amazing and you would want to ride it all day long if you could. Tower of Terror is such a thrilling ride and so much fun.
Well, that is all I have for today. If you have any questions please contact me in my contacts section. Until next time, have a magical day!
