31 Days: TriceraTop Spin

Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day31 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  After looks at Soarin’ and Star Tours the past two days, today we are shifting our focus to a ride that is geared more towards your little ones than the thrill seeker in your family.  Of course, I’m referring to TriceraTop Spin, located at DinoLand USA in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.  This attraction is similar to Dumbo and the Magic Carpets of Aladdin in that it has a similar ride mechanism, but of course, in TriceraTop Spin, you are riding your favorite dinosaur as you spin around the park!

As I was saying, though, the ride is most notable for the younger audience you have in your family…the picture above shows my friend Neal’s wife and their two kids riding.  Neal, being the thrill seeker in the family, decided to sit this one out and take pictures for the memory books. :)

With Sophie being nearly 13, and Riley being 12 and Miss J being 11, I would be extremely surprised if they ride TriceraTop Spin — but I have been wrong before, so who knows!  Now, what about all of you?  Do you ride it, or have you ridden it in the past, and would you ride it again?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

 

Magic Carpets of Aladdin

52 Days: Magic Carpets of Aladdin

Magic Carpets of Aladdin

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin are our choice for #Day52 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!

Hello everyone, and thanks for taking time to stop by today as we explore the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, our choice for #Day52 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  This ride is built on the mold of Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and the Triceratop Spin, and even Astro Orbiter in that you sit in a ride vehicle — in this case, a magic carpet — and you can propel yourself up or down based on the controls on the vehicle.  While this isn’t an attraction that we ride every time we visit the Magic Kingdom, it certainly qualifies as one that we have enjoyed in the past, and who knows, we might even ride it this year as well!

One of the things you need to keep an eye out for — whether you are going to ride it or not — is the camel that is positioned with the sign as you approach the ride.  If you don’t pay attention to him, you may find yourself a little wet, so pay attention!

Do you and your family enjoy the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, or do you pass this by on your way to the Enchanted Tiki Room?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!  Go out and make today and every day a great Disney Day!
