It seems like every week we are letting you know about a new change coming to Disney. With all the closing, refurbishment, and re-branding announcements, I couldn’t help but think about all my favorite attractions and shows at the Magic Kingdom and how I hope that they never close.
Here are my top 5 attractions that I never want to see leave the park.
Space Mountain: My favorite ride at Magic Kingdom, Space Mountain is all at once thrilling and iconic. A landmark of Tomorrowland, Space Mountain shows us the future of tomorrow as well as the park’s past.
Main Street Trolley Show: I cannot hurry down Main Street USA when the Main Street Trolley show is playing. The singing (albeit, lip synced), dancing, and costumes always pull me in. I dare you to try and frown while watching this show!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Yo Ho! Yo Ho! A Pirate’s Life for Me! This ride inspired a cinematic saga, which turned around and re-inspired the ride. Pirates of the Caribbean is a classic attraction that is loved by adults and children alike. Can you imagine if this ride closed?! Can you imagine what it would be like with no Jack Sparrow skulking around? That would be a very sad day for Disney!
Haunted Mansion: Perhaps the most beloved ride of all, the Haunted Mansion is an icon. Sitting atop a hill overlooking Liberty Square, this creepy Mansion has driven its Doom Buggies into the hearts of so many fans. Magic Kingdom without the 999 Happy Haunts would not be the same!
Wishes Fireworks: Ah, Wishes Fireworks. For me, Wishes is the perfect ending to a magical day at Magic Kingdom. I know it’s not everyone’s favorite show, but it is my favorite, hands down! I love the music and I love the message. I’m sure this show will be updated eventually and swapped out for something new, but I hope in vain that it never leaves.
