The Mountains of Magic Kingdom – 24 Facts & Secrets

Walt Disney World’s mountains of Magic Kingdom, Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain, are amazing attractions each thrilling in their own way. Big Thunder Mountain is definitely the most “rootinest, tootinest ride” found in all of Walt Disney World.  The attraction lives in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom.  During the ride you take off in a train on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad through the mine with many amazing thrills and surprises along the way.

Splash Mountain is a beloved favorite, especially on the really hot days when guests want to beat the heat and cool off.  The attraction is fun to watch from outside, as you can see the guests drop (and you might even get a splash of your own), but the ride is even more fun to ride!

Space Mountain is a beloved attraction at Walt Disney World for so many guests.  The attraction has been around for over 40 years and appears to be unwavering for guests in terms of popularity and their love and enjoyment for this roller coaster.  It is a really unique and interesting attraction, too!

These rides also hold various hidden secrets and extras that you may not have noticed, even if you have ridden the ride several times.  Following are facts and secrets you may not know about Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Space Mountain.

About Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
