Five on Friday

Last week I gave you my top five attractions/rides that I want to do, but haven't done yet at Epcot. If you missed out, you can catch up here.

This week I am moving on to the Magic Kingdom. I believe this one will be the hardest as there are so many great rides/attractions that we have not been able to do yet!

5. Peter Pan's Flight - I think my son would really enjoy this ride! He has recently seen Peter Pan and loves it! I have heard this is a great ride for children and would love to experience it.

4. The Haunted Mansion - I am not really sure what this ride is about inside, but I do believe I would enjoy it. Our next trip will be in September 2012 and we will be going to MNSSHP, I would love to do this ride on that night!

3. Pirates of the Caribbean - Even though I have still not seen all these movies, I have heard great things about this ride. I think it would be fun to watch all the movies as a countdown to our trip and then ride the ride when we get there to complete it!

2. Tom Sawyer Island - This is something that I didn't realize was there on our last two trips. I know my son would love riding the ferry over to the island and have a blast running around and playing! I have also heard of something fun to do while you are there involving paint brushes!

1. Town Square Theater - This opened not long after our last trip to Disney, so we didn't get to visit. I can't wait to go and see Mickey and Minnie together - we have not done this before and it will be great to have a picture with both of them!

What are your favorite things to do at the Magic Kingdom? Is there anything you haven't done that you are looking forward to on your next trip?



  1. I'd say everything you have listed here is pretty much a "must-do" (at least once)!

  2. My all-time favorite at Magic Kingdom is probably the Haunted Mansion (although I love most everything). We usually do this 2 or 3 times on a visit. It's fun in the day and even more fun in the dark at night. It's really the same I suppose, but it just seems so different after dark. Hope you get to do this. It's really worth it.

  3. I love Peter Pan. Haunted Mansion not so much. I love the song, and unlike many attractions you just don't hear it like you do on say Splash Mountain. (Which is my FAVORITE) It is definitely something you should do at least once though especially since the update. Pirates is wonderful, especially on a hot day. Cool and dark with a breeze that magically comes from somewhere. The detail on this attraction is incredible! My husband loves to look for the pirate on the bridge, there is even hair on his leg! And his muddy foot is perfect.

    My favorite indoor attraction is Philharmagic though. There is a Magical Memory I wrote about on my blog for our first experience with it, that always makes me smile, but even without that it is just so well done!! I love watching the kids around me reach for the floating 3D objects. Some adults too!

  4. Tom Sawyer Island is one we've not managed to do yet either, but the other four are must do's for sure!
