From old classics like Splash Mountain to new wonders like Flight of Passage, Disney World offers so many attractions that are universally loved and iconic.
Now, what else is Disney World full of? Trips that are total guilty pleasures!
With so many age groups, interest levels, and demographics to please, not all trips will be a guaranteed success for everyone at Disney World. For every hit like Slinky Dog Dash, there is a mistake.
But even the duds have their admirers! Here are 8 not-so-beloved Disney World attractions that people secretly love!
The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Any trip in charge of Hercules’ effort to fill Mr. Toad’s shoes already has the odds against it.. So, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, the cloying child-centered attraction that took over the legendary place of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride in Magic Kingdom, was already classified in the “hate this” category long before it was forced. I’m sorry, Winnie!
But while this is certainly not a Wild Ride, you have to admit it’s pretty adorable. Sure, some parts are triple, and Winnie’s obsession with honey begins to require intervention, but the theme, music, and animatronics are vibrant, elegant, and downright awesome in their mechanics!
Alien swirling dishes
When your Toy Story Land mates like people like Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Mania, you have the job done for you when it comes to making an impression. Heck, even the Lunch Box Tarts are above the Alien Swirling Saucers in terms of Toy Story Land priorities!
While this trip to the Mad Tea Party certainly lacks emotion and, frankly, originality, we have to admit the whole atmosphere and ambiance perfectly captures the essence of a Toy Story arcade game, and if there’s one thing we like, it’s to feel like toys in a dizzying arcade room!
While Star Tours is certainly not terrible, so to speak, pales in comparison to literally anything in Galaxy’s Edge. Unfortunately for this trip and his enduring reputation, he had the misfortune of being ahead of the next Star Wars land, so when that popular area finally opened, Star Wars fans left this one in the dust.
Although funny and silly, much of this trip feels very old and timeless compared to Galaxy’s Edge. But they’ve done a good job of refreshing each trip, adding Kylo Ren and new planets to explore. Is it close to Rise of the Resistance? Absolutely not. But a classic campground like this doesn’t really have to be.
it is a small world
Is this Disney World’s most divisive trip? May be! Although some (especially children) find it lovely, others find repetitive music and dead-eye animatronics deadly. Not to mention the fact that the name “Stereotypes: The Ride!” Could easily be changed.
Love it or hate it, few attractions are as ingrained in Disney World as this Fantasyland icon. Such a polarizing journey undoubtedly has endless fans of guilty pleasure who take it out of pure tradition, and we must respect an attraction that can withstand the passage of time like this.
Peter Pan’s flight
The weather has not been kind to Peter Pan’s flight. With each passing year, as Disney makes the leap in technological advancement and dazzles guests with new lively attractions, it just makes this trip seem old, boring and absurd. Is it ironic that Peter never wants to grow up, because maybe he should?
However, like the neighbor, it is a small world, Peter Pan benefits from the nostalgia factor. It’s been so long since people basically loved it! Also, the queue is lovely, it’s fun to fly over London and it doesn’t have a monotonous song that gets into your brain forever.
Great Party Tour
Slow-moving boat trips are a dime a dozen at Disney World, and not all of them are that great! Compared to other beloved boat attractions (your Frozen Ever Afters, your Jungle Cruises, etc.), Gran Fiesta Tour feels very simple and uninspired, rather as a later idea that people stumble upon after daisies at La Cava del Tequila.
So you have to give it to Donald Duck and the gang. His charisma alone is enough to love this tedious attraction for so many. Jokes, colors and music (which is great) make it a worthwhile stop after a meal at the EPCOT Mexico Pavilion.
Of course, the mechanics and history behind this animal kingdom are truly amazing and impressive, but we cannot forgive the fact that the dinosaur is pure nightmare fuel. Usually classified as one of Disney World’s most frightening attractions, we call it terrible out of sheer spite.
But just like horror movies have their fans, and scary activities like skydiving have their adrenaline junkies, The dinosaur has its fans in people who are not reluctant to whiplash, darkness, and razor-sharp carnivores. they are precariously approaching your face! You do it!
Living with the Earth
We don’t like to opt for a little pastoral and innocent walk like Living with the Earth saying terrible, but the truth is that many people find this way too boring to experiment with. It doesn’t help that he’s in the same building as Soarin ‘, easily overshadowed and forgotten.
But this quiet boat ride proves that education and science and botany can be fun! For real! It’s beautiful, relaxing, mercifully air-conditioned and whimsically decorated for the holidays! It’s okay to admit that you like this one. Not all estimated trips have to go 65 mph.
Whether they are too slow, too old, or too stereotypical, these attractions often have many detractors, but for all the opposite, there is a guilty pleasure that is more than willing to line up again and again!
