Walt Disney World’s theme parks are full of fun rides, immersive attractions and great experiences. But, not all Disney parks are created equal. Some theme parks have a larger roster of rides and attractions than others.
So, which theme park has the most rides in Walt Disney World? Here’s the rankings.
- Magic Kingdom
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom has the most rides and things to do by a significant margin. The park has more than 20 rides guests can enjoy, which makes many view the Magic Kingdom as a two-day park.
Epcot comes in a distant second place with 10 rides for guests. That number will soon expand to 11 once Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opens in 2022. But, Epcot’s immense dining options might be more compelling to some guests than a ride count.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is next with nine rides. The park does have some live entertainment shows that we’re not counting in this list, which skews the numbers some. It’s also home to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and some of Walt Disney World’s best thrill rides.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is last with eight total rides. This park makes up for its short list of rides with some amazing animal exhibits and trails. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a park that’s worth exploring despite its limited number of rides.
But It’s Not All About The Rides
It may be easy to look at the list above and assume the Magic Kingdom is the best Walt Disney World park to visit. It has the most rides, right? Technically yes, but each Walt Disney World theme park offers something a bit different.
Epcot’s World Showcase only has a couple rides by definition, but traveling around the different countries is an experience in itself. The same can be said about the animal trails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The trails aren’t rides, but they’re part of the experience that makes the park unique. You can’t judge a Disney park by its attraction count.
We recommend researching each park, seeing what rides and attractions they have and deciding based. Magic Kingdom has the most rides by volume, but the park doesn’t have many thrill rides. Adults without kids might be more interested in Disney’s Hollywood Studios that has more extreme attractions, albeit fewer total attractions.
The best Disney park isn’t the one with the most rides – it’s the one that matches the interests of your group the most.
