Do you wish you could visit Walt Disney World right now, but a trip just isn’t in the cards? Read on to see 10 Disney World rides you can enjoy from your living room!
If you are a fellow Disney fan, I’m sure you would agree that there is nothing quite as thrilling as riding a Disney park attraction. Even those you’ve ridden multiple times seem just as exciting the tenth time as they do the first. There is something about that Disney magic…It’s in a class of its own!
Now as fun as it is to ride a Walt Disney World attraction in person, there are plenty of ways to get your Disney parks fix without actually leaving your home. Watching YouTube videos is one of my favorite ways to “experience” Disney World from my living room couch for instance. Most of the attraction videos are shot from a rider’s point of view, so it really feels like you’re there riding it yourself!
I don’t know about you, but I could use a healthy dose of Disney magic right now. On that note, I rounded up 10 Disney rides you can enjoy from your living room in case you too are going through a bit of Disney withdrawal…
Whether you love Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios, I rounded up a little something for every Disney parks buff!
And I know you aren’t all roller coaster aficionados, so I included plenty of tame attractions in this list too. Haha!
