Let your imagination run wild while you play in the world of make believe in the Magic Kingdom Adventureland. Walk through the makeshift house of the Robinsons and imagine having to live life without the modern conveniences that we have today.
Close your eyes on the Magic Carpets of Aladdin and pretend you're flying high over your favorite city, or run for your life to escape the dangers of the wild animals on the Jungle Cruise.
It doesn't really matter what adventure you choose because there will always be another one waiting for you around the next turn.
Swiss Family Treehouse
Visit the home of the Robinson family at this walk through attraction in the Magic Kingdom Adventureland. What kid would not want to live in a tree house? Especially one that is as cool as this one. See how the Robinson family survived after being shipwrecked on a deserted island. They used what they could find on the island and what they could salvage from their ship to build their home.
I always like climbing up the Swiss Family Tree house in the Magic Kingdom Adventureland. When you get to the top, you can look down and see the whole Jungle Cruise ride.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Fly your carpet high over Agrabah and the Magic Kingdom Adventureland with Jasmine and Aladdin on this short 2 minute ride. As you fly around and around, be aware of the camel that is standing nearby. He likes to spit at people every now and again, and he has excellent aim. He always seems to get me.
This ride is very much like Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride that is in Fantasyland. The difference is that you are riding a Magic Carpet instead of an elephant, and the lines never seem to be as long as with Dumbo.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is basically the same as Dumbo the Flying Elephant but the line usually is not as long.
The Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management
Join Iago from Aladdin and Zazu from The Lion King while they try out their new management roles at the Enchanted Tiki Room. During this new version of the nine minute audio animatronics show, the new managers try to teach the old birds new tricks or, in this case, new songs.
Besides the old songs, you will hear "In the still of the night". Of course, you will still hear the birds belt out "In the tiki room" probably more than you care to hear it. If you are on your first visit to the Magic Kingdom Adventureland and you have not seen this show you should try it at least once. The dialog of the birds is cute and, if nothing else, it is an air conditioned room to sit in for a few restful minutes.
The Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management has never really interested me. I sat through it once we I was younger, but now I would much rather ride the rides instead of seeing this show again.
Explore the wilds of the jungle on Disney's ten minute safari style river cruise. Along the way you will visit four different continents and see many wild audio animatronics animals like Zebras, Hippos, Elephants and Snakes.
Your tour guide is the key to a successful trip as he/she will navigate you through some sticky situations, all while keeping you entertained with some silly jokes. Expect to see some very cool things like the back side of water and some eager headhunters who want do business with you.
But don't worry; your trusted tour guide will escape the danger and take you back to the Magic Kingdom Adventureland just in the nick of time.
This ride is outside so it is best to go early in the morning while it is still cool or late in the afternoon after the temperature has cooled down a bit. That way you can avoid standing outside in heat for too long.
I like the Jungle Cruise because the scenes are funny and the guides tell corny jokes.
I still love The Jungle Cruise. The animals really do not fascinate me much anymore. I think the younger kids enjoy them more. What I really like is the cheesy jokes the boat captains tell during the ride.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Ahoy mates! Do you ever wish you were a Pirate? If "Yo Ho Yo Ho, a Pirates Life for Me" is your theme song, then Pirates of the Caribbean is the ride for you. Why? Because pirates do not have any rules to follow and they do not have anyone to answer to, except themselves. You would get to sail around on a spectacular pirate ship and look for your next victim to overtake or village to plunder.
The adventures would never stop as you would have to protect all of the booty that you have accumulated. Better keep a watchful eye over your shoulder, though. Someone more devious than you might be waiting to take you down when you least expect it.
Let your imagination run wild on this ten minute adventure-filled boat ride. Along the way you will see Davy Jones in the dark cover of mist as well as a pirate ship in the middle of battle. Next, you will encounter pirates who pillage and burn a Caribbean town and auction off the women to the highest bidder. The special effects are awesome and the pirates look so real. Even Captain Jack Sparrow looks like he stepped right out of the movie.
By the end of the ride, several captured pirates try to coax a dog that has the keys to their jail cell in his mouth to come closer so that they can use the keys to escape. All the while, Captain Jack Sparrow is sitting high and happy on his pile treasure living the pirate's life indeed.
I will always love The Pirates of the Caribbean, I think because it is my daddy's favorite ride. I never get tired of the drop that is at the beginning of the ride.

During the tutoring session Captain Jack and his mate, Mack, teach young pirate wannabes how to act like a real pirate. If you can pass their skills check of swordplay and menacing facial expressions, you are deemed worthy to be called an honorary buccaneer. You can then take the pirate's oath.

Back in the Day - As a child, the Jungle Cruise was so mysterious and fun to me. Didn't the skippers carry and shoot cap guns at one time?
