If you are currently in Magic Kingdom, there are also plenty of other attractions to experience. Head over to Adventureland and check out Jungle Cruise or The Enchanted Tiki Room. In Frontierland, both Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain are excellent choices.

If you want to venture into Fantasyland, you can fly with Peter Pan on Peter Pan’s Flight, dive under the sea with Ariel on Under the Sea — Journey of The Little Mermaid, or hop on the back of a flying elephant on Dumbo. And lastly in Tomorrowland, you can beat the heat by heading over to Carousel of Progress or people watching aboard the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover!

Walt Disney World describes this attraction as:

Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!

Walt Disney World describes this attraction as:

Board a weathered barge for a treacherous voyage to the 17th century, when rowdy rogues and ruthless rapscallions ransacked Caribbean seaport towns. Sing along as pirates serenade you with their anthem, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me).”

Sail past haunted Dead Man’s Cove. Navigate cannon fire between a Caribbean fort and a striking 12-gun galleon. Behold boisterous buccaneers drunk on the spoils of plunderin’ as flames engulf a seaside town.

Be sure to keep a spry eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow, from The Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Ye beware, mateys: Dead men tell no tales!

Walt Disney World describes this attraction as:

The disembodied voice of the Ghost Host is your private guide through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.

Glide past a casket-filled conservatory, Madame Leota’s chilling séance room and a ghostly graveyard of singing specters as you attempt to find your way out. Beware of hitchhikers—these phantom pranksters may follow you home.

Happy haunting!
