We all love Disney’s rides at the theme parks, but sometimes the queue is part of the fun! Here’s a short list of a few of our favorite attraction queues at Walt Disney World!
1. Peter Pan’s Flight
We’re taking off to Neverland! The re-imagined interactive queue for this insanely popular Magic Kingdom ride is an absolute delight and worth the wait. Guests are transported to the Darling nursery where you’ll be visited by Peter Pan’s shadow, a very mischievous Tinkerbell and encounter lots of magical moments making you wonder how the Imagineers did it.
2. The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
This is another one that is at the top of my family’s favorite line list. There are a lot of fun areas here for kids to play while they wait. Our family favorites are the little bumble bees with honey pots that can move along with you as the line slowly moves forward and the falling honey walls where kids can brush away the honey and see what lies behind. Rabbit’s Garden is also abuzz with lots of hands-on activities that are sure to capture the attention of your tiny tots All of these elements add up to a fun way to pass the time!
3. Haunted Mansion
In my experience, the line for Haunted Mansion is a must! Maybe that’s just an excuse because I absolutely love all of the fantastic interactive elements that you can discover while waiting in line for your Ghost Host. From the marble busts that unravel a chilling murder mystery, a graveyard that’s good for a pun or two, to a musicians grave that springs to life with macabre music, there are so many rich details that you’ll notice something new every time. To get you started, see if you can find the wedding ring!
4. Toy Story Mania – Making your way through the queue of Hollywood Studio’s Toy Story Mania is like taking a walk (albeit a long one) down memory lane. It really is sensory overload as around every corner is a tip-of-the-hat to some of the toys and games that you loved as a child. The sense of scale makes you feel as tiny as Woody and his cohorts as you come across a towering game of Candyland and giant View-Master reels complete with amazing Disney imagery. Mr. Potato Head is also on hand for a bit of sardonic banter which helps to pass the time.
5. Expedition Everest – On the surface, it looks like a simple queue that takes you through a Himalayan tea company turned travel agency but watch closely as the subtle details and artefacts around you start to change to reveal a startling discovery. By the time you are ready to make your climb up Disney’s tallest mountain, the possibility of a chance encounter with the mysterious Yeti will have you shaking in your shoes. Definitely one of the most intriguing queues at Walt Disney World it is quite simply Imagineering at its best.
