Walt Disney World is a place where the fun never stops. Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean that the attractions close. In fact, some attractions are even better at night!
Here are my top 10 night attractions in no particular order…
- Splash Mountain – the drop is so much scarier when it’s dark outside! Splash Mountain takes you through some indoor and outdoor scenes and for me, the magic is always a little more heightened at night. Just make sure it’s a warm night because you can get very wet on this attraction.
- Test Track – the 0-60+ experience is so much better when the night air is whipping through your hair!
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – in my opinion, roller coasters are always better and more thrilling at night. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is no exception! Hang on tight!
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror – “The time is now, on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed. Tonight’s story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction.” – An introduction that is so much creepier when it really is evening.
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover – Tomorrowland is truly spectacular once the sun goes down. The view of the neon lights from the People Mover is something that everyone should experience at least once.
- Astro Orbiter – Soar high above Tomorrowland on the Astro Orbiter. You’ll be able to see even more of the Magic Kingdom at night!
- Living with the Land – This one is maybe a little unexpected, but there is something really cool about gliding through the greenhouse when it’s dark outside and there are no greenhouse workers.
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – You won’t be able to see all the turns and curves coming which only adds to the fun of this attraction.
- Prince Charming Regal Carousel – this attraction is so beautiful at night! It lights up the whole area and is the perfect attraction to jump on right before leaving the park for the night.
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant – Soar high (or low – your choice) above Fantasyland on Dumbo and get a different view of the Storybook Circus area as the marquees glow in the night.
Are you seeing a theme here? Rollercoasters, bird’s eye views – these attractions are arguably better at night then they are in the middle of the day.
