Welcome back Disney Fam!!! This week we’re back with a follow up to last week’s post on our absolute favorite Walt Disney World rides (if you missed it click here!!!). Like last week, this article was a little hard to write but for a different reason: there aren’t many rides at Walt Disney World that we don’t like! I mean they really do have soooooo many options to choose from when it comes to rides that there is something fun to do no matter what mood we’re in. With that being said, this list will; again, be totally subjective. Some on my list are definitely some of the most popular rides in the parks complete with merch and cult like followings to boot. So let me know what you think about my absolute least favorite rides at Walt Disney World in the comments below. I’d love to hear yours too!!!
5. Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Now I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like scary, creepy or spooky things. I’m more of a rainbows, butterflies and sunshine type of gal. However, this has little to nothing to do with my reasoning for not liking the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. I was ok with the backstory and all the special effects. I was even ok with the ride at first…. Then it kept going and going and going and going!!! Rides around the world bring on your sudden drop, or even your sudden shoot up! But please whatever you do don’t keep shooting me up and dropping me down over and over and over again. My stomach tapped out after the first few up and downs. I didn’t loose my lunch or anything, but it definitely had me ready to get off at the nearest floor.
4. Haunted Mansion
Please! Stop! Don’t go! I know tons of you absolutely love Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion ride. I know you have the matching wallpaper in your bathroom and I truly am happy for you, but this ride just didn’t do it for me. Like I said already, I’m not the world’s biggest fan of spooky things. While this ride is on the milder side of scary, the ride itself just didn’t do anything for me. It was a needlessly slightly creepy addition to my otherwise enchanted and magical day. If it was a more thrilling ride, I may have actually cared for it a little more. Overall it was just ok; not too scary but not too fun either in my opinion.
3. Mission Space
Y’all, we were so excited about this ride the first time we rode it. Should we do the orange, or the green, the orange or the green??? Being the admitted thrill seekers that we are, we went orange! When we got off, we had to double check to make sure we got on the supposedly more “thrilling” experience. Unfortunately, we did. You know what this ride reminds me off? Have you ever gone to your local science center and gotten on their simulator ride? Well if you haven’t, give Mission Space a try! It’ll give you an idea what it’s like for sure. It’s one of those rides we rode once and never rode again. In my opinion, it’s seriously super overrated.
2. Tomorrowland Speedway
I know, I know this attraction is for the kids, but my kiddos didn’t even like Tomorrowland Speedway! My girlies are still pretty young and the excitement of driving their own “racecar” couldn’t outweigh the jerkiness and lack of control on this ride. You may as well not touch the steering wheel at all for all the good it does you. We’ve tried to get our girlies to give it another go, and they are always both a no. Trust me, we don’t argue with them either! When the ride closed a little while ago, we hoped it would be a long-term thing (as in forever) but, it was not to be.
1. Enchanted Tiki Room
Old school Disney lovers (like myself) put your stones down!!! This ride, this ride, this ride. I don’t even know where to start with this one. While Enchanted Tiki Room is more of an attraction/show than a ride, I dislike it soooo much, it just had to take my top spot. I’m willing to bet money that the only people who like this ride rode it for the first time when they were under 10 years old with their entire family 20-30 years ago. I am not one of those people. This ride holds absolutely no nostalgic warm fuzzies for me. I was looking for the exit door two minutes into this one. If I had to choose between the Tiki Room and being caught outside in the rain, hand me my poncho!
Honorable Mention: Stitch’s Great Escape
Ya’ll!!!!!!! I know this ride has been out of commission for a couple of years now, but the awfulness of this attraction still haunts me. If for some reason we had to base our entire decision to return to Walt Disney World on this one ride, we would have never come back! I have a thing about smells and being burped on is not my idea of fun times, Disney! Not to mention the pitch blackness that you and your little ones are engulfed in while this highly dangerous, escaped alien creepily laughs and crawls his way throughout the room. Raise your hand if you want terrified little ones!!! Not me! We honestly could not believe how terrible this ride was. In a sea of awesome attractions at Walt Disney World, Stitch’s Great Escape was so bad it’s hard to believe it ever got approved for construction. Maybe they made it so you could see just how awesome the other rides are.
So, there you have it guys, my absolute least favorite rides at Walt Disney World. What do you think of my top five worst rides? What are your least favorite rides? Let me know in the comments below!
