This ride is mild. It is very calm like a ride on a swing in the park

The new movie is wonderful! So cool to see so many of the iconic places from around the world!
Horace Horsecollar gave this a rating of 10 on 06/30/2016 at 4:43:42 pm EDT

I went to the classic attraction while it was reopened for a week. It's worth the experience, but definitely make sure you get a fast pass as otherwise the line is incredibly long, even early in the day.

Full disclosure, haven't seen Around the World yet, however, I LOVED over California and I have no doubt I'm going to love this new movie as much, if not even more!

Bernie bear gave this a rating of 10 on 06/17/2016 at 4:56:25 pm EDT

A big ole' 10 for this one!!! Ride it again and again if you can. The wait times are horribly long even with fast pass! Get that fast pass for this before you go. One of WDW's rides that you'll hear adults giggle like children!

One of our favourite rides at Epcot - we just love this one, and can ride it multiple times without getting bored. Really looking forward to the new film, but I hope that most of the music remains as that is just wonderful!

I can't wait for the "Around the World" update. I saw some behind the scenes footage of it at the 2015 D23 Expo and it was exciting!
