From Cinderella’s Castle to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers and meeting your beloved storybook princess, it can seem that Walt Disney World Resort is tailored towards sugar and spice and all things nice. But there’s a whole world beyond princesses and lovable Disney characters within the realms of Walt Disney World Resort,  just waiting to be discovered.

Beyond its fairy tale facade, The Most Magical Place on Earth boasts an abundance of thrilling experiences that will set your heart racing and adrenaline pumping. Think you know Walt Disney World? Well, let’s see if you do…

Hitch a Ride on TRON Lightcycle/Run: Presented by Enterprise

Prepare for a fast-paced frenzy on the newest ride at Walt Disney World - TRON Lightcycle/Run: Presented by Enterprise. Hold on to the handlebars and release your inner biker as you set off on a high-speed chase against the Grid. Darting through dark tunnels with state-of-the-art computer graphics, propel into a virtual universe of epic proportions. If you’re a cyber fanatic who loves the thrill of a chase, then enter the endless blue realm on TRON Lightcycle/Run: Presented by Enterprise.

And the best part? Keep up with technology and join the virtual queue or purchase a Lightning Lane pass on the My Disney Experience App. This means you arrive at the scheduled time for your ride, removing any time waiting in line.

Join an Intergalactic Troop on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Who needs Prince Charming when you can save the planet from destruction? Shoot into space on a mission to save the world from a celestial threat, joining forces with Star-Lord and his team of Guardians. Race against Thanos in an immersive reverse launch coaster, the first of its kind at Walt Disney World Resort. Rotate 360 degrees as you swivel your way through all the cosmic action and adventure. 

You’ll feel like you’ve left the real world in this space escapade, soaring into the galaxy and surging at incredible speeds. And like TRON Lightcycle/Run: Presented by Enterprise, there are no physical queues, so you can spend that time enjoying other rides until your scheduled departure from reality.

Embark on an Extraterrestrial Battle in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Use your experience as a cosmic warrior to enlist in the Resistance for the ultimate combat against the First Order. With a seamless combination of multiple ride systems, including trackless vehicles, motion simulators, drops, and advanced audio-visual effects, you’re in for an unpredictable ride of your life. Blur the lines between reality and fiction as you’re placed in the heart of the action in your efforts to save the solar system. 

Unleash Your Adventurous Spirit on Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

Want to feel on top of the world? Then hop on board an alpine train for a journey to the highest point on Earth, the ice-covered peak of Mount Everest. But it’s not all smooth sailing, as a menacing Yeti interferes with the tracks, plunging the train into a steep descent. 

Experience exhilarating flushes with high-speed drops, twists and turns, and sudden encounters with the Yeti as he attempts to grab the train. Your heart will be racing for all the right reasons with this one-of-a-kind railroad mission.

Make a Splash on Crush ‘n’ Gusher

When the Orlando heat becomes a little too much, then head onto Disney’s water parks for a refreshing and fun time. Think you’ve left the thrills at Disney’s theme parks? You’re in for a big surprise.

For an aquatic adventure, surge down the undulating Crush ‘n’ Gusher water coaster at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. Let the current move you along one of three twisting 400 ft long chutes - the Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher, or Pineapple Plunger. Grab a floating raft and sail through the curvy course of uphills, downhills, twists and turns until your plunge into the Hideaway Bay pool below, ending your water journey on a splash-filled high note. 

Plunge down Summit Plummet

Designed solely for the adrenaline junkies, this is a ride you’ll never forget. Stay in your swimsuit and change water parks to Disney’s Blizzard Beach, where you’ll find the tallest and fastest body slide in the world with a nerve-wracking near vertical 360 ft descent. 

As you edge to the ride’s start, the steep chute is entirely hidden from your view and only apparent once you make a rapid descent that mimics the feeling of free-falling. Summit Plummet is not for the faint at heart and is made solely for the bravest of daredevils.

Party like a Rock Star on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

If your ‘happily ever after’ involves loud music, guitar riffs, and a fast-paced tempo, then climb into Aerosmith’s limo as you embark on a galvanising journey through the city, heading to their showstopping concert. Ride the streets of Los Angeles, rocking and rolling on inversions and loops to the soundtrack of Aerosmith’s hits. This high-speed rollercoaster will leave you feeling breathless, buzzing, and soaring with a sense of absolute euphoria.

Free-fall on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Get ready to scale soaring highs and plummet from dizzying heights on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™. If gravity-defying drops fill you with ecstasy, you’ll experience a rush of adrenaline from this terrifying yet thrilling elevator-style ride. 

After witnessing the spooky antics of The Hollywood Tower Hotel’s haunted passages, recounting the mysterious disappearance of a group of guests in the elevator during a stormy night in 1939, you’ll then relive this terror. The elevator ascends and plummets multiple times, granting you a feeling of weightlessness as you drop within seconds. It’ll send shivers down your spine, leaving you wanting more.

Max Out on Adventure

Did you know that if you purchase Walt Disney World tickets by 31 August 2023, for arrivals before 12th September 2023, you’ll receive a Disney 14-Day Magic Ticket for the price of a Disney 7-Day Magic Ticket?
