Confessions of a True Disney Fanatic — 10 Greatest Guilty Pleasures at Disney World Resort

Mickey Mouse

Heres the thing: I love absolutely everything about Disney World—even the rides and shows everyone else avoids. I could have fun in Disney World without FastPasses or dining reservations, and wont hesitate to go every single chance I get.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I also have a few guilty pleasures when it comes to Walt Disney World. Below are a few of these wonderful little indulgences that many may not understand, but that I simply cannot get enough of.

Animatronics Shows

There are a few different animatronics shows throughout Disney World. They aren’t the most thrilling attractions per se, nor are they most impressive anymore, but I love ’em anyway. Country Bears Jamboree, Carousel of Progress, and Hall of Presidents are all dated, sure, but I love the nostalgic feeling they give me, not to mention a nice air-conditioned break.

Ride Photo Poses

A huge number of Disney rides snap a photo of riders. I love to take full advantage of this fact by posing for each snapshot as we zoom past. It’s always fun to check out these photos at the end, which continues to make riding the coasters over and over exciting for me.

Speaking with Recordings

If you’ve been to Disney World before, you know there are voice recordings everywhere you go. They ask you to stand clear of doors, remind you to keep hands and feet inside your car, and even let you know when you’re about to ride the “wildest ride in the WILDerneeeeessssss!”

Like many Disney veterans, I have a habit of speaking right along with these recordings, and have an absolute blast doing it. My favorite? That’s easy: the “stretching” room in the Haunted Mansion!
