Your Favorite Animated Classics Are Everywhere at WDW!



Everyone has their favorite Animated Disney classic movie, and one of the best parts of a Walt Disney World vacation is getting to see these movies come to life in the rides and attractions!

So you might be wondering….Where can you find your favorite Disney Movie at WDW?

Well, here’s the answer!

Beauty and the Beast – The New Fantasyland features the Beast’s Castle, where you can dine at the Be Our Guest Restaurant, and even meet the Beast himself! You can also check out Enchanted Tales With Belle, where Belle interacts with children and tells them stories. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, The Beauty and The Beast stage show will wow you with its songs and reenactment of the classic tale

The Little Mermaid – This is another movie that takes center stage in the New Fantasyland, with Prince Eric’s Castle, which houses the “Under The Sea – Journey Of The Little Mermaid” ride, where you board a giant clamshell and head under the sea and into Ariel’s world! There is also an “Ariel’s Grotto” section of this attraction, where you can meet up with Ariel for photos and autographs. The Voyage Of The Little Mermaid over at Hollywood Studios is a multimedia recreation of the movie which is presented in a theater style setting with live actors

Cinderella – She is a pretty big deal over in the Magic Kingdom, as the main focus of the whole Park is Cinderella’s Castle – where you can actually dine with Cinderella and other royalty at Cinderella’s Royal Table

Aladdin – Take ride with Jasmine and Aladdin in the Magic Kingdom on the Magic Carpets Of Aladdin

Dumbo – Fly along with this adorable baby elephant on Dumbo’s Flight which was recently re-done with the New Fantasyland expansion and it now has an interactive queue and two sets of flying elephants (so twice as many people can ride at once!). Head over to Big Top Treats and pick up some delicious circus-y snacks like caramel apples and cotton candy!

The Lion KingFestival Of The Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a live theater show that features classic Lion King scenes and songs – and it’s a great way to watch the movie come to life (which getting to enjoy an enclosed, air conditioned theater on a hot Orlando day!)

Alice In Wonderland – Are you a fan of tea? Even if you’re not, you will love boarding a giant teacup at the Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland, where you spin as fast as your stomach can handle (I do NOT recommend riding this one until your Crystal Palace meal has fully settled!)

Toy Story – Not sure this one could be considered a “classic” Disney Movie quite yet, but it certainly is one of my favorites, and for those of you who agree with me, I suggest you check out Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland, where you can join Buzz in defeating evil! Toy Story Midway Mania over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios lets you try your hand at classic midway games like darts and shooting, and After all that, you’ll probably be hungry, so I suggest you check out Pizza Planet – a restaurant and arcade that serves up – you guessed it – pizza! As well as other options

Peter PanPeter Pan’s Flight seats you in a magical flying pirate ship where you fly high above scenes recreated from the original animated classic. You can also meet up with Tinkerbell and her fairy friends over at Tinkerbell’s Magical Nook in Adventureland

Most of these attractions have gift shops or stands near their exits that feature merchandise inspired by the rides – so you can pick up a stuffed animal or t-shirt to match your favorite movie! And if you really want to go all out – you can take your little one for a makeover at the Bippity Boppity Boutique – where they will do their hair, nails, makeup and wardrobe and turn them into their favorite Disney Prince or Princess!

And of course, there are many chances to meet and greet the characters from your favorite movies too! There are tons of character meals that feature many of the characters from these classics, and you can always check out the Park guides/schedules once you arrive for more info – as characters rotate times and appearances daily

No matter what your favorite Disney Animated Classic is, you’re bound to find it somewhere at Walt Disney World! What about you – which one is your favorite?

  1. I like the Winnie-the-Pooh, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Chronicles of Narnia movies. I can still see the WTP ride (although the play area was adorable before the New Fantasyland attraction came in). Pirates has quite a large presence now with the original ride, the Pirates League and the Pirate Adventures at the MK and the Legend of Cap’n Jack Sparrow over at HS. I’m bummed that Disney no longer has Narnia. I wish they’d make more movies and bring in an attraction (they had one, but replaced it with LOCJS).

  2. I agree there should be Oliver and Company in the parks, but there is nothing. I’m surprised they have even made Vinylmations of them.

  3. Cars life size are at Hollywood studios towards the back behind muppets. My girls love cars. My youngest said they can’t sign my autograph book bc they have tires not hands. They are reving up engines and look awesome. Lightning and Mater only are there good picture opportunity.

  4. We’re going this fall and plan to stop at AoA to see the Cars area, but is there anywhere in the parks where my son can see anything Cars related?

  5. B’rer Rabbit – Splash Mountain. They can hide this movie (Song of the South) away but they can never steal my memories of it!
