Disney World’s pretty famous for its mountains.
Of course, we’ve got the 3 big mountains in Magic Kingdom — Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad — but we can’t forget about Expedition Everest over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom! And while LOTS of people say these are some of the best rides in Disney World, we wondered which one would come out on top.
So we did what we do best here at DFB: we asked our readers on Instagram! The battle was entirely up to YOU: which is the best mountain Disney World?! And guys, you’re NOT ready for the winner.
Let’s kick things off with our low scorers! Space Mountain took 4th place with 1,907 votes. Surprisingly, it trailed pretty far behind the other 3 options! While Space Mountain is a Magic Kingdom icon, we guess not everyone’s a fan of getting thrown around in the dark. Hey, we get it!
In 3rd place, we’ve got none other than the wildest ride in the wilderness! Big Thunder Mountain Railroad scored 2,270 votes. Again, it’s a Magic Kingdom staple, but it didn’t quite clench the win.
In second place (drumroll please…) is Splash Mountain! With 2,454 votes, Splash Mountain snagged first place out of our Magic Kingdom mountains. Despite the fact that you may get soaked (unless you opt for a trusty poncho!), this ride was a super popular pick.
Okay, so do you know what that means?! Our first place mountain is (wait for it) not even in Magic Kingdom! That’s right — Expedition Everest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom took the lead with 4,613 votes. Now, when we think of Disney mountains, we almost always think of the flagship park…so yup, this is kind of a shocker.
But we gotta admit: with its twists, drops, and (somewhat terrifying) encounter with the Yeti, Expedition Everest is a solid ride. Props to it for taking down all 3 Magic Kingdom mountains! Which mountain do YOU think reigns supreme? Stay tuned to our Instagram for more fun ways to share your Disney opinions…and in the meantime, we’ll keep ya posted with the latest Disney news.
