4. Epcot's World Showcase
Crowds got you down? Long lines even at dining venues, including snack carts? It is definitely time to find a Disney alternative to rides and attractions that are mobbed with people. Board one of the sleek, shiny monorails or catch a Disney bus to Epcot, then make your way to World Showcase where you can take a relaxing walk around the Lagoon and visit unique pavilions representing eleven different countries: America, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, and United Kingdom. The crowds are not as overwhelming here, and the walk around the lagoon is approximately 1.2 miles, so take your time and enjoy learning about the history and culture of each country from Disney cast members who are natives of the country they are representing. Not only will you be avoiding long lines and lots of people, but you will be gaining knowledge of other countries of the world.
5. Visit Walt Disney World Resorts
When the theme parks are overcrowded, board a monorail for a trip around Disney World, with stops at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Magic Kingdom, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. This is an excellent way to visit some of the more elaborate Disney Hotel Resorts. You can visit their shops, walk around the property, or enjoy a meal or snack while you're there. Monorail access is readily available at 3 of the Magic Kingdom Resorts along this route. So, if you're feeling a bit claustrophobic from too many people, get on board a Disney monorail for a high-in-the-sky trip around Disney World and maybe check out these fabulous Disney Resorts.
6. Not So Popular Rides or Attractions
Another way to avoid the masses is to choose those rides or attractions that are less visited. Here are a few examples where you can enjoy a ride or attraction without having to wait in a long line:
Carousel of Progress - Magic Kingdom - Tomorrowland
Mickey's Philharmagic - Indoor 3-D Movie Experience - Magic Kingdom - Fantasyland
Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid - Magic Kingdom - Fantasyland
Enchanted Tales With Belle - Magic Kingdom/Fantasyland
Tom Sawyer's Island - Magic Kingdom - Frontierland
Living With the Land - boat ride - Epcot Futureworld - The Land Pavilion
The Seas With Nemo and Friends - Epcot - Futureworld - Living Seas Pavilion
Journey Into Imagination With Figment - Epcot - Futureworld
Muppet Vision 3-D - Hollywood Studios
These are just a few of the attractions which are unique but not as busy as other Disney experiences. When crowds are heavy these experiences will always be more easily accessible.
