Walt Disney was the ultimate master of the great escape from reality. His movies have taken viewers on magic carpet rides and under the sea, while his parks have delighted guests with rides through jungles and into outer space. Below are some of the best rides at Walt Disney World® either based on movies or inspired films of their own.

Toy Story Land is a family favorite

Toy Story Land

Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang are waiting for you in Toy Story Land, a new family favorite area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® where rides transport you to Andy’s room and beyond. The Slinky Dog Dash is a wild ride that twists, curves and springs across Andy’s backyard. Alien Swirling Saucers is an out-of-this-swirl experience that spins you across the galaxy. And on Toy Story Mania!, you’ll blast your way through a carnival-themed 4D arcade.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will amaze you

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge transports you to a galaxy far, far away, one filled with mind-blowing experiences for fans of all ages. On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance — a massive, multi-platform, new ride — you join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order. When your transport is captured by Kylo Ren and a legion of stormtroopers, you’re going to need all the help you can get. Fortunately, a covert team of Resistance fighters, including Rey and BB-8, is ready to give you a fighting chance. Hold on tight — the fate of the galaxy is in your hands!


Avatar Flight of Passage

The mind-blowing beauty of the exoplanetary moon Pandora has been recreated on 12 acres in Disney’s Animal Kingdom® park! Experience it firsthand on Avatar Flight of Passage, where you can soar over the moon’s gorgeous landscape aboard a pterodactyl-like mountain banshee. Park guests will also get to explore the sacred bioluminescent rainforest seen in the film on the Na’vi River Journey ride.

Set sail on Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean

While there have been several films inspired by Walt Disney World® Resort rides, the Pirates of the Caribbean® series of movies — starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley — has definitely been the most successful. Now you can experience all the fun of the movies yourself, boarding a treacherous voyage to the 17th century where you can sing pirates anthems like “Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me),” sail past haunted Dead Man’s Cove, navigate cannon fire between a Caribbean fort and a striking 12-gun galleon, and, of course, keep your eyes peeled for Captain Jack Sparrow himself.

Peter Pan’s Flight

When Disneyland first opened in July 1955, there were only 12 rides, and Peter Pan’s Flight was one of them. So, a visit to Walt Disney World’s® version of this attraction is worth a whirl, especially since they updated it to appeal to modern tastes. Now, it’s a typical Disney dark ride, where you’re flying in the dark suspended from a track on the ceiling, lifting you up to soar with Peter as he faces off against Captain Hook.
