Top 17 Walt Disney World Must-Do’s During This Phased Reopening

It’s no secret that things have changed at Disney World. Many of these changes are upsetting for some. However, there is some good coming out of these changes as well. In our opinion, these good things—plus the new additions we saw pop up in the last couple of years—far outweigh the negatives caused by the changes made due to the pandemic, and we are still finding plenty of magic each and every time we visit the Walt Disney World Resort. Wondering what kinds of things you should do to ensure you experience this same magic? Well, honestly, just visiting the parks is enough. However, the 17 things below are the very best things to experience at Disney World right now, and adding them to your itinerary will help ensure you have a super awesome trip.



1. Hop on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

The newest addition to the Disney attraction lineup, this adorable dark ride features some seriously amazing effects. We love that the ride includes the Fab Five and that it’s good for all ages. Best of all, because crowd levels are low and FastPass+ is not currently offered, the lines for this are actually manageable.

2. Snag a Spot on Rise of the Resistance

Another brand new attraction, Rise of the Resistance is a completely immersive and absolutely amazing experience. That said, because the ride uses a virtual queue, getting a place in line was nearly impossible before the pandemic. Now, it is still difficult to snag a spot, but it is a little bit easier thanks to lower crowd levels.

3. Ride Other Popular Attractions

There are of course a huge number of other super popular attractions. Most of these have significantly shorter average wait times, because there are fewer people in the parks and FastPass+ is not offered. Take advantage of this now while it’s still the case!
