There are a lot of great rides, shows, and magical experiences throughout Walt Disney World for guests to enjoy during their vacations. Many guests focus on the thrilling and well-known attractions throughout the four Disney parks. Although these are top attractions that shouldn’t be missed, there are also many underrated experiences that guests shouldn’t forget either.

These attractions might not get the praise that other attractions do, but there are still beautiful experiences that help create the magic at Walt Disney World. Look at these underrated attractions at Walt Disney World that you won’t want to miss during your vacation.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover- Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom

Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom is one of our top underrated attractions in Walt Disney World. The PeopleMover takes guests on a journey high above Tomorrowland. Unique views of Magic Kingdom are experienced as guests travel on this slow-moving ride.

Get a quick look at nearby attractions such as Tron Lightcycle Run, Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, and Space Mountain. As a quiet, slow-moving ride with great views, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover shouldn’t be missed.

Gran Fiesta Tour- Mexico Pavilion, EPCOT

Hidden away inside the Mexico Pavilion, guests will find the Gran Fiesta Tour. This slow-moving boat ride allows guests to join Panchito and Jose Carioca as they search to find Donal Duck. The ride is cheesy but fun for the whole family.

The highlight is passing the volcano and the gorgeous San Angel Inn restaurant. We love the Three Caballeros and find the Gran Fiesta Tour a ride many guests miss because they don’t know it is there.

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress- Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom

The history of this ride makes it a must-do attraction for us. Dating back to the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress is an underrated experience. In this attraction, guests follow the same family through different decades as they discover new technology and progress.

The audience rotates around the different scenes on a center stage, making this a unique experience for guests. Although this isn’t an exciting experience, it is a huge part of Disney’s history and shouldn’t be missed.

Muppets Vision 3D

Muppet Vision 3D- Grand Avenue, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Muppet Vision 3D is an underrated show that leaves guests laughing at the humor and 3D pranks throughout the show. Even though this show could be updated, we love seeing the Muppets and the craziness that happens when they try to put on a show.

This great show is often missed as guests rush from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Toy Story Land. We find it to be underrated and full of laughs.

Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room- Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

Another historical Walt Disney World attraction is Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Where animatronics came to life, this show combines music, jokes, and many tropical birds to create an entertaining show.

Don’t skip this show the next time you are in Magic Kingdom. When you have time between Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise, head to Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki for some classic Disney magic.

Animal Kingdom Trails

We love the trails at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so many guests skip over them while visiting this Disney park. There are three main trails for guests to enjoy throughout the park.

Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail is found in Africa and is home to the gorillas. This is a fantastic area where you can enjoy watching these amazing animals interact with one another.

Another self-guided tour is the Maharajah Jungle Trek in the Asia section of the park. This is where guests can find the beautiful tigers, temple ruins, and gorgeous landscaping.

Finally, guests will find the Discovery Trail around the Tree of Life. Here, you can get up close to the beautiful Tree of Life to see more of the detailed carvings that make this tree so unique.

So often, guests rush past these trails, which are so underrated. They provide such amazing experiences and beautiful sights.

Hall of Presidents- Liberty Tree, Magic Kingdom

A historical and patriotic attraction that is underrated is the Hall of Presidents. This attraction takes guests on a journey through the history of the USA. At the end of the show, all the presidents of the United States are on stage together. It is a fantastic moment that is often not seen by guests.

Take some time to enjoy the air conditioning and take in the patriotic show.

Country Bear Jamboree, Magic Kingdom

Country Bear Jamboree- Frontierland, Magic Kingdom

This entertaining classic is found in Frontierland. Head into the theatre, where the beloved bears put on a show with fun music and a little humor. You will clap with Henry, Big Al, and Teddi Berra. Although it doesn’t have the most updated technology, it is still a fun stop during a day in Magic Kingdom.

Living With The Land

Living with the Land- Land Pavilion, EPCOT

Don’t miss out on this close-up look at the gardens of EPCOT. Living with the Land is an underrated boat ride through the gardens of EPCOT. Guests can see the hard work of Cast Members as they continue to make improvements to gardening.

The gardens are beautiful, and the unique growing methods are interesting. Don’t rush past this on your way to Soarin’ Around the World. Stop by and enjoy this underrated boat ride,

Most of us prioritize the top-rated attractions during our trips to Walt Disney World, but by doing this, we also miss out on many other experiences. We hope this list of underrated experiences will help ensure you don’t miss some of these attractions during your next trip.
