When you purchase the Disney Genie+ service, you want to make sure you choose your reservations wisely; after all there is only one of you and an almost endless amount of amazing attractions to choose from! So to help you along the way, we have suggested three attractions and experiences in each Walt Disney World Resort Park that are 'must-dos', so check them out…
Magic Kingdom Park
1. Peter Pan’s Flight
Take a flight over the London skyline and past the second star to the right for a NeverLand adventure on Peter Pan’s Flight, a must-do classic attraction! This ride is perfect for the whole family to enjoy making it one of the park’s most popular attractions, so we’d highly recommend trying for a Genie+ reservation.
Fun fact: Look out for the mermaids right at the end of the ride - one of them has been designed to look like Ariel from The Little Mermaid!
2. Space Mountain
This high-speed roller coaster is a true Disney classic that’s not to be missed on any trip to Magic Kingdom Park!
Fun fact: Space Mountain is the oldest operating roller coaster in Florida!
3. Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater
You can't visit Walt Disney World Resort without meeting the mouse that started it all - Mickey! You can book a range of Character experiences with your Disney heroes through Disney Genie+, including Cinderella, Tiana and other Disney Princesses, but this would always be top of our list!
Fun fact: Mickey will celebrate his 100th birthday in just a few years!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
4. Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Enjoy panoramic views of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park on this exciting, high-speed, high-altitude, roller coaster train ride… but beware of the yeti that calls this mountain home!
Fun fact: Expedition Everest is the tallest “mountain” in Florida at 199.5ft.
5. Festival of the Lion King
If you’re a fan of the classic Disney movie The Lion King and enjoy a good show…this is the one for you. Located in Africa at the Harambe Theatre, this spectacular production is as big as a Broadway show!
Fun fact: Following the first ever show run in 1998, many performers went on to star on Broadway.
6. Kilimanjaro Safaris
The centrepiece of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, on Kilimanjaro Safaris you’ll board a safari truck and take a journey through the ‘African savannah’ where you can see free-roaming animals including elephants, giraffes, hippos, rhinos and lions. We’d recommend trying to get a Genie+ reservation for early in the morning or late in the afternoon, as the cooler temperatures mean the animals are often more active.
Fun fact: Kilimanjaro Safari is so big that the whole of Magic Kingdom Park could fit inside the attraction
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
7. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™*
Terror lurks around every corner of this crumbling hotel…and once you take your seat in the haunting elevator things just get even worse! You will be shot up and plunged down at speeds so high you will have to hang on for dear life (literally)!
Fun fact: The Disney Imagineers watched 156 episodes of “The Twilight Zone” to inspire them whilst creating this terrifying attraction.
8. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is one of the newest rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which means using a Genie+ reservation for this would be a wise choice. Hop aboard Goofy’s runaway railway for a trip to the park that doesn’t quite go as planned. You’ll need to expect the unexpected on this whirlwind adventure!
Fun fact: Despite being some of Disney’s most recognisable Characters, this is the first ride to feature Mickey and the gang!
9. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
One for the thrills seekers! This high speed roller coaster accelerates from 0-60mph in a matter of second, and with a specially recorded Aerosmith soundtrack playing in the background…you will feel like a true rock star!
Fun fact: Aerosmith attended the opening of the attraction in 1999 and band members Steven Tyler and Joe Perry rode it 12 times in a row!
10. Test Track
Ever wanted to design your own custom vehicle and then ride it at peak speeds of 65mph? Well with Test Track you can, and at the end you will even be tested on how well your car was designed!
Fun fact: Each Test Track vehicle will travel almost four times the amount of miles an average U.S. car is driven in a year!
11. Frozen Ever After
Here is your chance to journey through the frozen fjords of Arendelle up to Elsa’s ice palace, alongside Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, Sven and more! Watch out though, you just might be mistaken for an unwanted visitor! This ride has been extremely popular since its royal retheme in 2016, so a Genie+ reservation is ideal.
Fun fact: The characters in Frozen Ever After were the first all-electric audio-animatronics, making them the most advanced animatronics at the time the ride opened!
12. Soarin' Around the World
This incredible ride was revamped in 2016 to allow guests at EPCOT to go Soarin' Around the World! Fly over beautiful sights such as the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower and Neuschwanstein Castle as you breathe in the smells of different countries and cultures.
Fun fact: You ride the attraction flying 40ft in the air as you gaze on an 80ft wide projection dome, making it feel like a totally immersive experience.
