Every Movie You Can Experience At Disney's Magic Kingdom, Ranked According To IMDb
Disney's Magic Kingdom includes multiple rides based on movies (and vice versa) but which of these films is the best of the bunch?
The Magic Kingdom is one of the greatest theme parks in the world, with guests heading into Orlando to experience the different attractions at this park from around the globe. The park has something for guests of all ages, and it provides fans of Disney movies the chance to experience them first-hand.
Whether it's a dark ride that tells the full story of the movie or a ride that just utilizes the characters and experiences from within them, there's a lot that fans can enjoy. But when it comes to the movies that can be experienced inside of Magic Kingdom, which has the strongest rating, according to IMDb?
11 The Haunted Mansion (2003) - 5.0
The Haunted Mansion is often considered to be a Magic Kingdom classic, but sadly the same cannot be said for the movie. This attraction is an amazing dark ride, taking guests into the mansion as they tour on a doom buggy, witnessing the different happy haunts that inhabit it in a ride that utilizes technology perfectly.
The movie was actually inspired by the theme park ride, with Disney taking popular story elements and characters from the attraction and fleshing out a story for them. The movie sees a realtor attempt to sell a mansion, only to learn that it is haunted, encountering all manner of ghosts inside as his family learns about each other in the process.
10 Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command: The Adventure Begins (2000) - 6.2
When people think of Buzz Lightyear, this typically isn't the movie that fans go to. However, when it comes to the Magic Kingdom attraction, Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, this is the movie that suits it best, as the ride has got nothing to do with any of the other Toy Story characters.
The attraction allows guests to journey through as they help Buzz against Emperor Zurg, using blasters to score points in what is an interactive shooting ride. That ties in well with this movie, which focuses all on Buzz as he tries to take down his enemy.
9 Winnie The Pooh (2011) - 7.2
Winnie The Pooh is one of Disney's most iconic franchises, with the company having created several movies based around these whimsical and beloved characters. The 2011 version is arguably the strongest, giving a featured spot to all of the characters.
Inside Magic Kingdom, guests can hop into a Hunny pot and head off on a fun adventure in an excellent dark ride that has plenty of surprises, with all of the popular characters popping up along the way.
8 Dumbo - (1941) - 7.2
Dumbo is one of the classic Disney animated movies all about the young elephant who can fly. It's an emotional story as he's taken away from his mother, but he begins to thrive and have fun due to his friendship with a young mouse, Timothy.
Fans can experience what it is like fly like Dumbo on the Magic Kingdom attraction based on this character. The ride is a classic attraction that is accessible to guests of all ages, with this fun spinner being an enjoyable ride.
7 Peter Pan (1953) - 7.3
The Peter Pan attraction is located in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom and is notorious for having huge wait times due to how popular the ride is with guests of all ages. This is a classic dark ride that takes audiences on a pirate ship above the sky as they ride around the different scenes in the movie.
While there have been many different movie versions of this classic story, the animated Disney movie is often considered to be one of the greatest. Showcasing Neverland and Peter Pan's battle against Captain Hook as Wendy and her brothers end up thrust into this new world, which turns out to be a whimsical adventure.
6 Alice In Wonderland (1951) - 7.4
This movie is another that has been told in a variety of ways over the years, with the novel of the same name being one of the greatest stories ever told. Focusing on Alice's journey into Wonderland and the different characters she encounters as she tries to get back home, Disney did a brilliant job of this, creating a wild and vibrant world.
When it comes to the attraction based on the movie, guests board a teacup and get to enjoy the Mad Tea Party, being able to spin around to their heart's content in a ride that is sure to have people smiling from ear to ear.
5 Snow White And The Seven Dwarves (1937) - 7.6
Considering this was the original animated movie that kicked everything off for Disney, it makes sense that it would be represented in Magic Kingdom. The movie which follows Snow White as she meets seven dwarves while the Evil Queen attempts to kill her for being the fairest in the land is a classic, and one that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Originally, Magic Kingdom had a dark ride that allowed guests to travel through the scenes of the movie itself, but that has since been changed. However, the movie is now represented with a mine train rollercoaster, focusing on the seven dwarves themselves.
4 The Little Mermaid (1989) - 7.6
The Little Mermaid is a Disney classic, telling the story of Ariel, a mermaid who wants to explore life beyond the sea. She eventually gets her wish but loses her voice as part of the deal that sees her gain legs, with the movie following her romantic journey with Prince Eric.
Guests at the Magic Kingdom can experience that story fully, as the amazing dark ride follows the movie scene by scene, with some of the greatest audio-animatronics of all time being found in this one.
3 Aladdin (1992) - 8.0
Aladdin tells the love story between Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, despite the fact that they come from contrasting worlds. With Aladdin having Genie by his side, the movie has a great deal of comedy and romance, creating an unforgettable story.
The ride at Magic Kingdom isn't one of the most exciting ones, with the Magic Carpets Of Aladdin allowing guests to board the carpet and take to the skies as they go round and round while being able to tilt the vehicle to avoid the spitting camels.
2 Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl (2003) - 8.0
Much like The Haunted Mansion, this live-action movie was inspired by the theme park attraction, with the ride coming first in this instance. The classic boat ride takes guests on a swashbuckling adventure filled with pirates, which has become one of the greatest rides of all time.
The movie, which tells the story of Will Turner joining forces with Jack Sparrow as he tries to save Elizabeth Swann proved to be a mega-hit, so much so that it inspired Disney to create a whole franchise. The movies have then gone back and freshened up the ride too, with characters from the movies now being found inside the attraction.
1 Monsters, Inc. (2001) - 8.1
is an amazing movie that is still considered to be one of Pixar's all-time greats. Following Mike and Sulley who end up with a child, who enters their world through the scare factory, turning their lives upside down, only to end up becoming attached to her.
At Magic Kingdom, guests can head to the Laugh Floor, which is an interactive show hosted by Mike that plays jokes on the audience itself, with the laughter filling up the canisters to power Monstropolis.
