With the start of the new year coming tomorrow — and everyone, please be safe tonight if you go out to any New Year’s Eve parties — I thought I would take a little time to focus on a new series that I’m going to start. As all of you know, the theming at Walt Disney World is among the best in the world, and in many ways, the theming is what really makes the rides stand out. So, starting with our post on Thursday, I’m going to take a look as some of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World, and share with you some of the things that I really like about them, both in the ride operation areas as well as the theming of the queue, and also the music that makes the attraction stand out.
To start off our series, we are going to first turn our focus to the original Walt Disney World attractions that were in place when the Magic Kingdom opened on October 1, 1971. As you can tell by the picture at the top, “it’s a small world” is the first stop on my journey. This classic attraction has a lot of historical significance to it, as well as classic music and characters.
After we look at “it’s a small world”, we’ll look at the rest of the original attractions that are still open today, including the following:
- Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse
- The Haunted Mansion
- The Jungle Cruise
- Walt Disney World Railroad
- and many more!
I hope you will join me on Monday and Thursday mornings as we journey around the Walt Disney World Resort, exploring all of the incredible attractions that make Walt Disney World the vacation destination that it is!
