Magic Kingdom For Seniors: Tips, Suggestions & Surprises

It's that time in your life when the kids are out of the house and you and your significant other are ready to take that trip to Disney World together. While it may seem like the parks are just for families, there is plenty do to for older adults.

The beauty of heading to Walt Disney World is the memories that it helps create in your life. You may have gone in the early years of the park and again with your children. But now, this trip is all about you and how you want to spend your time. The hustle and bustle of getting there at rope drop and heading to your favorite roller coaster may be gone, but there is still excitement to be had at the Magic Kingdom. Here are the five best rides/attractions for seniors at the Magic Kingdom:

The Nostalgia Rides

The allure of a trip to Disney often lies in the nostalgia that it creates. You hop on one of these rides and remember back to when you or your kids were young. These rides include It's a Small World, Carousel of Progress, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover. All of these rides either opened with the park in 1971 or shortly thereafter and have changed very little since. Most of these rides also have a counterpart in the original Disneyland in California, which means that Walt's fingerprints can still be seen on them.

These five rides are fairly slow moving and for the most part either don't have a line or a very short line depending on the time of year. They are perfect for remembering when and creating new Disney memories.

Meet Mickey and Minnie at Town Square Theater & Liberty Square Riverboat

I know, I know. This seems like a kid thing, but it's not. How could you come to the House of the Mouse and not meet the man himself? In true Disney fashion, the nostalgia of Mickey and Minnie's careers is on display as you wait in the queue. And at the end, you get to meet the magical couple.

As your day starts to wind down, just before the sun sets, head over to Liberty Square for a Riverboat ride. It's often overlooked, but it's beautiful at dusk. You will travel through Liberty Square and Frontier Land and see the attractions from a unique point of view. It's a nice leisurely way to wrap up your day at the Magic Kingdom.

Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin

This ride is just plain fun. You are one of Buzz's Space Rangers and you get to shoot lasers at the evil Emperor Zurg. If you are the competitive type, you get to keep score to see who in your ship scores the most points. Your ship can spin in all directions to help you to defend the planet. It's Disney World, so why not have some fun while you're there?

Under the Sea–Journey of the Little Mermaid

This is a newer ride. The animatronics are outstanding. You will head under the sea and travel through the entire Little Mermaid story. Be prepared to sing along to some classic Disney songs including "Part of Your World" and "Under the Sea". It's slow-paced, but don't worry there's a ton to see, especially in the Under the Sea scene.
