Beyond the Teacups: The dizzying array of fun and entertainment at Walt Disney WorldWritten by Leslie Clevenstine
Traveling to Disney World with someone who needs an air sickness bag to ride a carousel? Or who doesn’t find whimsy in being tossed about in a spinning teacup? Not to fear. Disney World is actually one of best places for non-theme park types (yes, they do exist).
Visiting theme parks in Disney World is an experience that goes far beyond thrill rides. Many of attractions are not rides at all, but entertainment experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Here’s just a small sampling of what you can experience at Disney theme parks that are not rides in traditional sense of term:
Magic Kingdom Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin – take aim at evil emperor Zurg with your “laser gun” as you travel through outerspace Hall of Presidents – history lesson given by audio-animatronic versions of U.S. presidents Goofy’s Country Dancing Jamboree – learn country line dancing with Goofy and friends Mickey’s Philharmagic – 3D magical adventure with Mickey, Donald Duck and a host of other characters Share a Dream Come True Parade – held every afternoon at 3:00 pm Wishes fireworks – evening fireworks set to music (check park map for times)
Epcot Spaceship Earth – ride through time as you learn about history of communications Honey I Shrunk Audience – 3D theater experience with a few unexpected surprises Living Seas – first rate aquarium and oceanography exhibit World Showcase entertainment – a host of entertainment can be found each day, all of it top notch (consult park map for times) Illuminations – fireworks and laser spectacular set to music, held at park closing each evening Impressions de France – large screen movie on France and its people The American Adventure – a multi-media telling of American history by Ben Franklin and Mark Twain
