As many of you already know, my family and I are avid Disney vacationers. Naturally then, I feel like I know what the best rides are at Walt Disney World, and which ones are just “meh.” However, as a future educator, I definitely am aware that no one person can know everything about a given subject, despite how much of an expert they think they are.
So during my internship, I learned just how true that statement is. Throughout the program, I was exposed to some fantastic rides that I in the past overlooked. Two specifically come to mind and I got to ride them on one of the last days of my program. (Just in time!)
Both of these attractions are located in Magic Kingdom. The first one is Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, located in Tomorrowland. Honestly, I avoided Laugh Floor because I thought it was geared towards younger children. However, I quickly found out it is great for ALL ages. Laugh Floor is where the famed characters from Monsters, Inc. entertain the crowd with some jokes, often using the audience members as inspiration. The first time I was there, my friend and I got picked on by the comedians…and we loved it! And here’s a hint if you too want to become the butt of their jokes: sit in front of the lamps.
My second hidden gem ride is Mickey’s Philharmagic, which is in the center of Fantasyland. I was apprehensive to ride this attraction because for some reason I thought of it as outdated. However, as a route to escape the rain, I checked it out. For those who do not know, it is a 3-D movie/musical featuring various Disney characters and their infamous songs. Being a 90s Disney baby, I LOVED seeing these classics and singing along to the music that make up the soundtrack of my childhood. And I wasn’t the only one! I noticed several other guests singing just as loud and cheering along. It was a really fun experience and one that I look back fondly on.
Both attractions are super fun, each for their own different reasons, and favorites of College Program interns. I am so glad I got to experience them both. And they are definitely added to “Brittany’s Favorite Rides” list, ha!
