The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is visited by hundreds of thousands of guests every day. People travel across the world to experience the magic of the resort and make unforgettable family memories. The resort is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom.
Each Disney Park is filled with delicious dining, engaging entertainment, and thrilling attractions. We often discuss popular attractions like Avatar Flight of Passage, Soarin’, TRON Lightcycle / Run, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. However, many underrated park attractions don’t get enough credit. Today, we’re talking about the top five underrated attractions that you shouldn’t skip when visiting Walt Disney World.
Enchanted Tales with Belle
In Magic Kingdom, you will find an underrated attraction in Fantasyland. Head toward the Beast’s castle in Fantasyland, but instead of dining with the Beast, we’ll stop at Enchanted Tales with Belle. This story-based attraction is often overlooked, but don’t skip it! Enchanted Tales with Belle is fun and interactive for guests of all ages, and it is home to one of the coolest attraction transitions you’ll find at Disney World.
The Seas with Nemo and Friends
This EPCOT attraction is not unknown but definitely underrated. In EPCOT’s World Nature, enjoy The Seas with Nemo and Friends. This attraction has two parts: first, journey under the sea and into the story of Finding Nemo (2003), and next, explore The Living Seas aquarium. The aquarium is also home to Turtle Talk with Crush, another great attraction where you can chat with Crush from Finding Nemo. There are so many things to enjoy at this underrated attraction, from manatees and dolphins to live diving presentations. Don’t miss out on everything there is to explore at The Seas with Nemo and Friends on your next trip.
Walt Disney Presents
There are many exciting attractions to enjoy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, from Galaxy’s Edge to Sunset Boulevard. However, today, let’s talk about one that is more understated and underrated. In Animation Courtyard, you can visit Walt Disney Presents (formerly just named One Man’s Dream) to dive into the history of Walt Disney and the Disney parks. Enjoy exhibits showcasing Walt Disney’s past with relics all the way through Disney’s present. Additionally, the attraction offers a short film titled Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream.
The Animation Experience at Conservation Station
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to popular attractions, including the Festival of the Lion King and Expedition Everest. Still, we’re heading past all of them to jump on the Wildlife Express Train. This train transports guests to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. Once you arrive, head to one of the park’s most hidden and underrated attractions: the Animation Experience at Conservation Station.
At the Conservation Station, learn about amphibians and reptiles, veterinary treatments, and nutrition for the animals at the park. Additionally, you can take part in the Animation Experience, where a Disney animator will teach you how to bring one of your favorite Disney characters to life. Before you go, check the My Disney Experience app for the day’s animation class times.
Maharajah Jungle Trek
Tucked away in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, you’ll find the Maharajah Jungle Trek, an underrated attraction many guests skip. The Maharajah Jungle Trek is located in the back of Asia, just past Kali River Rapids. This self-guided walking tour features tigers, birds, reptiles, and other animals. Explore the wildlife of Animal Kingdom, and don’t skip this attraction on your next trip to Walt Disney World.
