Last time I did my top 5 favorite rides at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, so naturally, I have to do the 5 worst rides. Now I am probably going to name one of your favorite rides but just keep in mind that this is my list, and your list is going to be different. So let’s dive right in!
Swiss Family Tree House
Although this is not technically ride, the fact it is still labeled as an attraction is mind blowing. The Swiss Family Tree House is located in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom and it is by far the worst Disney Attraction. It is literally just stairs. You climb up the stairs to and see all of this staged furniture so you can see how the Swiss Family lived and then you climb back down. There is absolutly no entertainment factor… it’s just stairs.
For those of you who remember the Mickey and Minnie Houses that were in Toon Town, this is the same idea only it’s not air conditioned, you have to climb stairs, and no one really knows the story of the Swiss Family Tree House. At least with the Mickey and Minnie house, 99% of children knew who Mickey and Minnie were. The Swiss Family Tree House is honestly a giant waste of space.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
This is not a bad ride but it is exactly like Dumbo but Aladdin themed. This ride is definitely a waste of space. If it wasn’t there the entire courtyard it sits in would be open and there would be a much better flow of traffic. Honestly, if the Dumbo ride is backed up you can always ride this one because it is the exact same thing.
Stitch’s Great Escape
Being a huge fan of Stitch this ride still pains me to go on. Thankfully it is only seasonal and it is hopefully on its way out. This ride replaced Alien Encounter, which I never personally rode but from what I have heard it was much better than the Stitch ride. When I rode this I didn’t think this was a bad attraction, but I thought it was a little boring. Basically, Stitch breaks out of this tube thing and the lights go off and he runs around the audience… it’s not bad … just boring. Like nothing else happens. There are rumors that this is going to become some sort of Wreck-it Ralph ride which would be interesting, so hopefully, Stitch’s Great Escape won’t be around for much longer.
Some people hate this attraction with a burning passion. However, I don’t think it is an awful attraction but it is definitely loud and smelly. A lot of kids like this ride because it gives them the chance to drive a car. When I was little I absolutely loved this ride just for that reason. However, if Disney came out tomorrow and said they were replacing it with something else I would not be disappointed.
What ride do you hate at the Magic Kingdom? What do you wish they would replace it with?
