Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney Park includes different attractions and experiences for Guests to enjoy. Walt Disney World also is home to two water parks, Disney’s Blizzard Beach (temporarily closed) and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. Guests looking for a different view can also head to the shopping and dining district, called Disney Springs, and visit shops, restaurants, and much more.

Guests heading to Magic Kingdom can experience iconic attractions such as “it’s a small world,” Jungle Cruise, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Haunted Mansion, The Many Adventures with Winnie the Pooh, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and many more attractions. Guests can also stroll down Main Street U.S.A, and spot Cinderella Castle.

Recently, a new trend has shown that Guests are using Disney attractions as a new kind of medicine.

In a TikTok, Guests can be seen riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to help relieve pain from a kidney stone. This Guest was leaving from New Jersey to try and help relieve pain. She even got a button to celebrate passing her kidney stone. Of course, this Guest did not pass the stone while at Disney Parks, but rather the next day.

Disney describes Big Thunder Mountain Railroad like this:

“The legend has it that soon after gold was first discovered here in the 1850s, eerie things began to happen. Trains would take off and race through tunnels—by themselves. After you arrive at the legendary Big Thunder Mining Company, descend into an abandoned mine shaft and board your train. As you enter the cursed cavern, the engine speeds up along the rickety track. Dodge exploding dynamite and falling boulders as you swoop around turns, drop into canyons and dart through the mysterious ghost town of Tumbleweed.

Your rip-roaring adventure proves that some legends are true. You’re sure to have a real blast!”
