Disney World is known to have crowds, long line ups, busy restaurants and at times it can all get pretty overwhelming. It’s important to break up the chaos that can be found at the Disney parks with some slow paced rides and a little peace and quiet. Here is our list of the 10 most peaceful attractions at Walt Disney World.
10. Epcot’s Jumping Fountains
Located in Future World in Epcot near the Imagination pavilion, you’ll find some whimsical jumping fountains. These little fountains aren’t technically an official attraction, but they are certainly peaceful and worth seeking out when visiting Epcot. There’s something very tranquil and mesmerizing about watching the water jump from one point to another, or watching the synchronized diamond shaped fountains.
9. The Lazy Rivers
Each water park at Disney has a super relaxing lazy river that is the perfect place to recharge. Typhoon Lagoon has Castaway Creek, which is 2000 feet long, and Cross Country Creek at Blizzard Beach is 3000 feet. That’s’ a lot of peaceful drifting along in an inflatable tube.
8. Animal Kingdom Trails
The Maharajah Jungle Trek and Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail are both walking trails that are completely immersive. You’ll feel as if you’ve left the city behind and you’re wandering through a lush trail in Asia or Africa. You can take your time and slowly walk the trails, or you can find a quiet little bench and enjoy the atmosphere of the trails. They are the perfect place to head if you need a break from crowds or thrill rides.

Dumbo offers guests a calming flight in Fantasyland. It’s up to you if you want to move your Dumbo up and down, or just continuously fly at the same, steady level. As you fly around, you can gaze at the people below or at the other attractions in Fantasyland and just take in the sights and sounds. You can also choose to sit alone in your Dumbo if you need just a couple minutes to yourself!
6. It’s A Small World
It’s A Small World is a whimsical boat ride that also happens to be one of the most classic Disney attractions. It’s a 10 minute ride, meaning you have 10 whole minutes to just sit back, relax and enjoy the happiest little cruise that ever was.
5. Tom Sawyer Island
Jump on the log raft and head over to Tom Sawyer Island to escape the hustle and bustle of the park. Once on the island it’s up to you where to go as there is no official tour or set path to experience the island. You’ll feel so removed from the rest of the park you’ll forget about the long lines and large crowds.
4. Living with the Land
Slow boat ride are often peaceful rides at Disney, and Living with the Land is no exception. Guests float through multiple landscapes, eco systems, and the greenhouses of Epcot. And as a bonus, you might just see some Mickey shaped vegetables in the greenhouses.
3. The Liberty Square Riverboat
Board the Liberty Belle for a scenic tour of the Rivers of America. While Mark Twain narrates your 17-minute journey, you can take in the sights and get a different vantage point of Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain and the Haunted Mansion.
2. Na’vi River Journey
If you need a break from terrifying yetis, or a white water rafting adventure just isn’t your idea of a good time, then head over to Pandora and board the Na’vi River Journey. This family-friendly boat ride takes you into the bioluminescent forest of Pandora where there are plenty of unique plant and wild life to see. It is quite a dark ride, which only adds to the mystery and soothing nature of the attraction.
1. The Peoplemover
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover is a 10-minute tour of Tomorrowland. This attraction takes you above all the action of the land, and even through Space Mountain. It’s difficult not to just melt into the seats as you settle in for the breezy slow ride around Tomorrowland. If 10 minutes isn’t enough, the line is usually so short that the cast member might let you go around again if you ask nicely. The Peoplemover is perfectly peaceful day or night, so don’t skip this one when you need a few minutes to escape the chaos of Magic Kingdom.
