Disney Vacation Guide to the Best Magic Kingdom Attractions for Adults

A visit to Disney’s Magic Kingdom is a dream come true for most children but this theme park with its landmark Cinderella Castle has a whole lot of fun to offer adults, too.

Splash Mountain.

If you love the thrill of a wild ride and you don’t mind getting soaked a little wet, you’ll relish in the excitement of this infamous log flume ride in the thick of Critter Country which ends with a five storey drop!

Space Mountain.

Speed through sharp drops and hairpin turns in your own personal rocket ship as you plunge into total darkness at speeds of up to 28 miles per hour. This 3 minute ride is an oldie but a goodie.

The Haunted Mansion

Most screams in the Magic Kingdom come from Space Mountain but the Haunted Mansion is not for the faint of heart. Your slow-moving “Doom Buggy” will slither through the mansion’s rooms as ghosts appear in the hallways and perhaps even right beside you. Eek!

Pirates of the Carribean

Tour a Carribean City under attack in this classic Disney attraction. Step into the West Indes in the 19th century when gold was bein’ brought from the New World and Pirates like Jack Sparrow ruled the seas! If it’s adventure ye be after, climb aboard a boat and prepare to take a wee plunge over a 14-foot waterfall where you’ll be dropped in the midst of a pirates battle.

It’s a Small World

This classic Magic Kingdom attraction may not be exciting enough for the children you’re traveling with, but for many adults its an instant favorite. Designed by Walt Disney himself for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York, this gentle, whimsical boat ride takes you through the cultures and customs of 100+ of the world’s nations.
