Every few weeks our writers get together and answer a Disney related question. Here is this week’s question and answers.
Question of the Week: It’s been a while since we’ve done this one, if we’ve done it at all… What’s your favorite attraction that isn’t very popular with most crowds (say wait times generally under 15 or 20 minutes)?
Melissa –The People Mover in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The wait is never long and it is a very relaxing way to recharge and enjoy the scenery! It takes off from above the middle of Tomorrowland and whirls around into different attractions and along the outskirts of Tomorrowland without going above 10 mph. You can put your feet up and enjoy your moment out of the crowd.
Leslie – I really enjoy the Grand Fiesta Tour starring the Three Caballeros. It’s never that busy because it is tucked back in the Mexican pavilion and it seats quite a few people. The pavilion in general is a great way to beat the heat, houses lots of shopping, a bar, and a restaurant. Follow José Carioca and Panchito Pistoles as they search for Donald Duck who seems to have his own tour agenda of Mexico in mind. Now you also get a chance to see the animatronics from Mickey Mouse Revue which are an amazing addition to the ride! A great chance to relax and see characters that are rarely seen in the American parks.
Andrew – I shouldn’t ask questions that I don’t have an answer to… If I had to pick just one then I would go with Country Bear Jamboree in Magic Kingdom. I’m amazed at how well the humor still resonates, not just with me but with everyone. At this point, I think Country Bears are timeless and have become Disney icons. Other less popular attractions that I love are Impressions de France, Muppet Vision 3D, the PeopleMover, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, the Maharajah Jungle Trek, and the Red Wood Creek Challenge Trail. There’s one for every park in there, which seems like overkill now that I wrote it out.
