Disney Movies with WDW Attractions

Published on May 20, 2019 by Joanna Allen

So your trip to Disney World is all planned and the entire family is feeling the excitement of anticipation.  That is a good thing, and in fact to help keep the anticipation high you might think about watching some of the many Disney movies and then plan on the attraction. If you search on the internet you will find that a lot of them have something to do with the parks and you could share that with your children.  Below are our top seven picks.


Frozen 

In EPCOT there is a Frozen ride in the Norway Country exhibit.  With any luck, you can get fast passes for it and save a lot of waiting time.  The ride is a mild thrill ride on a large boat passing through various scenes reminiscent of the movie, with some of the main characters talking to you as you pass them.  Again, it is a minor thrill ride, but you might want to sit close to your youngest children just in case they need a quick reassuring hug.

In For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Hollywood Studios you can sing Let It Go out loud along with some of the characters from the movie. This seated theater experience features stories, songs and special guests from the movie. Check daily schedules for show times.

There is are also character meets and greets where you can speak with Elsa or Olaf the snowman.


Toy Story

Another great Disney movie for your children to watch is Toy Story.  This year at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival there was a topiary of Andy, the main character.

Beyond that, Hollywood Studios has a whole new section entirely dedicated to the movie, including the Slinky Dog Dash Rollercoaster. 

The rollercoaster is definitely a thrill ride, so be prepared to give more hugs.  In this new area of Hollywood Studios, everything is designed with the movie in mind.  As you enter you pass by a giant Andy doll and will see others as you stroll through the area.  In fact, everything is oversized to give the illusion that you have shrunk down to toy size yourself.  You will most likely run into the Green Army Drum Corp and get to listen to their exciting drum show, scheduled many times during the day.


Alice in Wonderland

Many of Alice's adventures take her to places she has never seen or felt before. Join Alice on the Mad Tea Party in MK, and see her (sometimes with White Rabbit) at the meet and greets nearby. Additionally, she comes to Epcot in the UK pavilion. Purchase Alice merchandise in the nearby UK pavilion shops. Be sure to ask her if she had her tea yet today.

Aladdin

After watching the Disney movie, be your best self and fly on the magic carpets of Aladdin in Adventureland of the MK. Aladdin and Jasmine regularly appear in Agrabah Bazaar or in Epcot's Morocco pavilion. Ask him about his latest adventure on his carpet or bring him an apple to help keep him out of trouble.


Beauty and the Beast

A trip to Hollywood Studios isn't complete without seeing Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage at Hollywood Studios. Be sure to look ahead for show times and get there early. If you want to meet and greet Belle, later on, find her in the France Pavilion at EPCOT. For a fun, interactive meet and greet she appears with Lumiere at the Enchanted Tales with Belle at Fantasyland MK. You may catch a glimpse of her in the Disney Festival of Fantasy parade as well.
Beast occasionally will make an appearance after dinner at Be Our Guest also in the MK.
You can find Gaston, recovering from his rejection by Belle at Gaston's Tavern in Fantasy land MK.

Another opportunity is Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

@We are the Allen Family and we live in the Northeast where the winters are long and cold. The warm Florida sun is a great break for us. Our children love the theme parks, so Orlando was the ideal destination. We found ourselves traveling to the Orlando area over and over again. Over time we found that hotels did not meet our needs and we wished for more space and a kitchen to prepare home meals. I have several dietary restrictions that make it extremely difficult to eat out. As our children grew older, they wanted their own private space. As a result, renting a vacation home became the ideal solution.
