Mechanical animals won?t measure up for older kids – A Disney classic ride, Jungle Cruise takes you on a boat ride, featuring mechanical animal figured. It?s cute to see the animal machines squirting water or wrecking safari camps, but it?s a little too kitchy for kids over the age of 10, at least in my opinion. If your party is on the older side, I would say skip this ride and just go see the live creatures at Animal Kingdom or at your local zoo.
Great visuals – Not a lot goes on during this ride. It's slow and there aren't any drops or loops, but the visuals are great!! So creative and fun to look at. The line proves how loved this "ride" is, but it's definitely worth the long wait. Also, stuff pops out out of nowhere and you will surely jump or shriek at least once, but it's all in good fun.
an unexpected treat – I wasn't sure I was going to like this ride, sure it would be hokey. I was delightfully surprised by how engaging and fun this ride is. Not truly scary, but truly an experience no one should miss.
Ghosts, jokes and amazing special effects make this haunted house a classic. – The Highlights
The ghoulish gags begin before you even enter the ride: a tounge-in-cheek graveyard, a staff of cackling "servants" who usher you inside and a creepy, quirky waiting area where the ceiling is magically raised. Riders then board individual cars and travel through the 19th century mansion--which promises surprises at every turn. You'll be amazed by the banquet hall, where ghosts dance, dine, and fade in and out as you ride past.
This is a Fastpass ride. If you get stuck in a long line, entertain yourself by reading the epitaphs on the gravestones.
wonderful! – This is a CLASSIC ride. I love when it looks like the ghost is sitting in my lap!
a blast – A Disney classic ride. Fun for all ages. The line for this ride does move at a quick pace
A not to be missed CLASSIC! – Still my favorite after all these years, The Haunted Mansion is a must see when at the Magic Kingdom. They have sped up the loading of the ride so youll probably miss a lot of the aging portrait in the entry lobby but the rest of the ride is still pretty much the same even though some of the effects have been improved. I do miss the cawing crow on the tree as you slide down the hill backwards after exiting the attic though! The cast can really help to make this ride hope you get a good actor with the ability to startle at least SOME of the guests when they say Drag your wretched bodies to the dead center of the room youll have a much better time if you do!
an oldie but a goodie! – This has been one of my favorite rides starting back to when I was six years old. This looks like a real haunted house, with a scary butler who greets you. He takes you on a tour, then you get in a car that takes through the house. The best part is when you ride by a mirror and see the ghost sitting next to you in the car. ( EEK!) Fun for all ages ( and really not toooo scary for younger kids, just make sure there is an adult to hold their hand)
