    Beauty and the Beast -- Live On Stage [G-4]       A-OK!

Be Disney’s guest! See Belle, Beast, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip, and that other beast, Gaston, live and on stage. An enthusiastic cast sings and dances its way through musical numbers from the animated film. The original story line all but disappears, but you’ll hardly mind, thanks to the good performances, eye-filling costumes, and fine staging. Lines are long, but the theater opens 25 minutes prior to show. Live, pre-show entertainment on some days. Outdoor queue is uncovered. Wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening.

    The Great Movie Ride (closed August 13, 2017) [D-3]       A-OK!

Hollywood’s famed Chinese Theater sets the stage for a sedate ride through famous scenes from classic movies enacted by Audio-Animatronics characters. Some live-action excitement and two short films add a bit of Hollywood pizzazz. Turner Classics Movies is the new sponsor, providing new narration and an updated finale with footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Guardians of the Galaxy. Long lines snake through a props and costumes exhibit. Following the pre-show film, the queue separates—each line sees a scene that the other does not. Indoor queue with overflow queue outdoors. Effects may be too intense for small children. Transfer from ECV to wheelchair. Wheelchair accessible. Update: This attraction closed August 13, 2017 to make way for the new attraction, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway [-0]      

This new attraction, opening in the space vacated by the Great Movie Ride, will give the famous mice their first dedicated attraction. Guests will join Mickey and Minnie on an exciting adventure with fun visual effects. Apparently it will be an enhanced dark ride, with new technology that will not require the use of 3D glasses. The animation styled used for this attraction is based on the new shorts at Disney Television Animation (they are currently being shown on the Disney channel and on the TVs at the Disney resorts—we like this style!). And as we understand it, this attraction will have more hidden Mickeys than any other existing ride! It was announced at D23 Expo Japan in February 2018 that this attraction would open in 2019.

    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith [G-3]         

Experience Disney’s first high-speed coaster launch. Hurtle through twists, 4–5G turns, and three inversions (yes, upside down)—in the dark! Rock band Aerosmith invites you to take a limo crosstown and join them backstage. Aerosmith also provides the soundtrack for your ride—five different tunes are possible depending upon which “limo” you get. Upon boarding, we recommend you press your head against the headrest to prepare for the very fast start (0–58 in 2.8 seconds). Beyond that, this may be the smoothest coaster you ever ride—even the coaster-shy have enjoyed it. Interactive indoor queue area takes you through a recording studio’s display of historic memorabilia. Take the single rider line for a shorter wait, or the “chicken exit” if you just want to enjoy the queue. 48”/122 cm height restriction. Transfer from ECV to wheelchair, and then transfer from wheelchair to ride. Alex’s KidTip: “Just no.” Allie’s KidTip: “You won’t believe how fast it goes! Make sure your stuff is safe.” TweenTip: “The loops are my favorite!” TeenTip: “This ride rocks!”

Height restriction: 48" / 122 cm

    The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror [H-4]         

Delight in the delicious spookiness of this haunted hotel, long before you ride its legendary “down and up and down and up again” elevator. The gut-wrenching drops are matched by wonderful visual effects. The queue splits in the basement—go left, it’s typically shorter. To enjoy just the fabulous queue and pre-show, take the “chicken exit” before you board the elevator (ask a cast member). Outdoor queue is mostly shaded. 40”/102 cm height restriction. Health warning. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. Transfer from wheelchair to ride. Closed captioning. Allie’s KidTip: “I like the up and down part, but the rest is scary.” TweenTip: “There are handles to hold beside the seats if you’re scared. (But I’m not scared!)” TeenTip: “This is the best ride at Disney World! And I got Jennifer to go on it with me finally!”

Height restriction: 40" / 102 cm
