Top 5 Shows at Walt Disney World

On my most recent trip to Walt Disney World just a couple of weeks ago, my family took in a lot of shows.  A lot more than we usually take in.  Usually, we go to one maybe two shows.  But this trip, we went to a lot more for some reason.  It wasn’t because the weather was bad (it was great!).  It wasn’t because the parks were crowded (they weren’t outside of Monday at Magic Kingdom and Saturday at EPCOT).  We just did a lot of shows.  Here’s my top 5 shows at Walt Disney World after going on my most recent trip:

Top 5 Thrill Attractions at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney, when designing Disneyland, wanted to create a theme park where families could enjoy attractions as a family.  As a result, there were not a lot of what we consider thrill rides when Disneyland opened.  This concept could be seen in the Magic Kingdom when it first opened as well.  As time moved out, Walt Disney World and Disneyland started to add more and more thrill attractions.  There are still plenty of family attractions at both parks.  Today, we are going to countdown the top five thrill attractions at Walt Disney World.

Special Events and Walt Disney World – The Future

Last year, Walt Disney World rolled out a lot of special events to its special event lineup.  Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas are the tent-poles of the Walt Disney World Special Events.  Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park open for 24 straight hours during Memorial Day weekend is quickly becoming a third tent-pole for these special events.  The 24-hour park day is a great promotion for the guests because it does not require an extra ticket to attend like the Halloween and Christmas Party.  The other events, on this list, are also “hard/extra ticket” events.

Disclaimer: Everything in this article in regard to what events will be coming to Walt Disney World is pure speculation.  None of these events, for this year, has been confirmed or denied by Walt Disney World.

Top Counter Service Restaurants….By Park

Everyone needs to eat when they are at Disney.  Sometimes, you just don’t have enough time to sit down and have a full table-service meal.  That is where the counter/quick service dining options come in handy.  You can go in…grab a quick bite and then head back into the parks.  But what are the best counter-service restaurants to dine at.  Well, there are lots of them.  I’ll sift through them and bring you, in my opinion, the best counter service restaurant in each park.
