10. Parades and fireworks

The parades and firework shows are spectacular. Although Disney has some great parades The Main Street Electricial Parade at the Magic Kingdom is a all time favorite.

Illuminations at Epcot is a fireworks show that tells the story of the earth. It is really something special to see.

9. It’s A Small World at the Magic Kingdom

It’s a Small World ride in the Magic Kingdom is a whimsical boat ride that takes you through different countries of mechanical dolls that are all singing the same song. By the end of the ride you will be singing along too. This ride is for the young and old alike.

This is a new ride in the Magic Kingdom. It’s a rollercoaster that tells the story of the seven dwarfs. It isn’t your typical scary coaster, but it’s enough to get your heart racing. I would highly recommend getting a fast pass for this one. The stand by lines are long but worth the wait.

If your trip involves Epcot, Soaring is a must! This is another ride you will want to get a fast pass for. The lines are always long. Soaring simulates a hang gliding experience around the state of California. The views are breath taking. This ride is not for those afraid of heights.
