Visiting an Orlando theme park in the summer is always a thrilling adventure, but if you get a chance to visit during the Fall months, you’ll find some nice advantages like cooler weather and less crowded parks, as well as some attractions that are more fun this time of year. If you are planning a trip this Fall, here are the 7 attractions that are better in the Fall:
Tomorrowland Transit Authority
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority is a great way to take in some of Magic Kingdom’s best rides and attractions like Cinderella Castle. And during the Fall season it’s even more spectacular as you get to see those attractions decked out in holiday decor. The attraction is also way less busy in the Fall, which means you can hop on multiple times in a row for spectacular views.
Though Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is definitely a great ride for the hot Summer months; it offers a completely different experience in the Fall. During the Summer, many animals hide out in shady areas of the preserve. In the Fall, as the weather cools, animals are more active during longer stretches of the day, which means you can see more of them on your safari.
Treasures of the Seven Seas: A Pirates Adventure
For something a bit more active, make sure you try the Treasures of the Seven Seas: A Pirates Adventure at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. In the Fall, the cooler temps allow you to walk around comfortably for the two hours it takes to play through the game’s five adventures. Plus, it is way less crowded than in the summer.
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts at Universal Studios Florida is an indoor ride, which means it’s perfect for those hot summer months. So perfect that wait times can be upwards of two or three hours. However, in the Fall months those wait times drop significantly. It’s also worth mentioning that the experience depends on where you sit on the ride. When wait times are shorter in the Fall you can take a ride through Gringotts several times to experience everything the ride has to offer.
Toy Story Land
Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ newest attraction, Toy Story Land is a popular one. So popular you might not have been able to fully enjoy it when it opened this past Summer. Since almost the entire area takes place outside, you can enjoy the cooler weather while also being able to experience all of the fun.
You can’t visit Walt Disney World in the Fall and not take a spooky ride on Haunted Mansion at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This ride is fun any time of year but during the Fall months, particularly around Halloween when the park is decorated for the season, the Haunted Mansion is a must ride. You’ll certainly get into the spooky spirit after this ride.
Rides During Halloween Horror Nights
Halloween Horror Nights continues to haunt at Universal Orlando now through November 3. In between screams, make sure you take advantage of the many rides available. Halloween Horror Nights is the perfect time to get on your favorite ride like Rip Ride Rockit Roller Coaster. Not only is it fun to do at night but the crowds are a lot smaller during this event.
