5. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train - Magic Kingdom - One of the newer rides in Walt Disney World, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train boasts mild thrills while also showcasing some amazing creativity. The dwarfs inside the mine take you right back to the famous scenes from the movie. This is probably the most popular ride in Magic Kingdom these days and FastPass+ reservations go quickly. Without a FastPass+ time, you can expect to spend well over an hour in line for your turn.
4. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - Hollywood Studios - I have a closet obsession with The Twilight Zone. Each year, when the Sci-Fi Channel runs marathons of the show on fourth of July and New Year's Eve, I find myself drawn into the show. This ride puts you right in the middle of your own Twilight Zone story as you go plummeting down an elevator shaft in The Hollywood Hotel. This is a definite FastPass+ reservation for us. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, this is a tier 2 FastPass+ selection which makes it a no-brainer for us!
2. Soarin' - Epcot - We have yet to experience the new video in Epcot's Soarin', but if it's even half as good as the previous version of the ride (and I've heard it's even better), we're going to be thrilled with the experience. This has always been one of my husband's favorite rides in Walt Disney World and I'm excited that my oldest son will get to enjoy it for the first time on our upcoming visit! We always like to hit this early in the day while also checking out other fun features in the Land Pavilion before heading over to Epcot's World Showcase.
