Top 7 Attractions That Are Better During the Day

There are so many amazing attractions at Walt Disney World.  They are fabulous during the day or night, but there are definitely certain attractions that you should try to prioritize to ride during the day if you can.  Here are our top seven attractions to experience during the day:


7 – Kilimanjaro Safaris – Animal Kingdom

We find that you can see much more if you experience this attraction during the day.  The early morning safaris are our absolute favorite since the animals seem to be more active then, especially before the heat of the day sets in.  The safari is amazing no matter what, but definitely try to visit it during the day and see what you think!

6 – Jungle Cruise – Magic Kingdom

The Jungle Cruise is a really fun attraction with a lot of pun-intended jokes from the Skippers throughout the ride.  We enjoy the attraction more during the day when we can see more of the scenery.  The attraction is beautiful and funny, so we like to get a good glimpse at all of it.


5 – For the First Time in Forever:  A Frozen Sing-Along – Hollywood Studios

This attraction is an amazing sit-down experience where guests get to sing along to their favorite Frozen songs.  It is completely inside, making it much better to experience during the day when you get a nice long break from the heat in order to enjoy the show.  There is no real benefit to seeing it at night, so we prefer to make this one a daytime activity.

4 – Test Track – Epcot

This one is great at any time of the day, but we tend to prefer it during the day.  We feel like you get a better experience when you ride it during the day.  There is a part of the attraction that is inside and then you blast outside going over 60 mph on a street track.  You can see all of the happenings around the area.  It is one of the fastest attractions in Walt Disney World and you don’t want to miss it!


3 – Enchanted Tales with Belle – Magic Kingdom

This attraction sometimes closes earlier and may not be open during other special events.  Because of this, we definitely recommend that you experience this one during the day so that you don’t miss it.  Since the attraction is indoors, waiting for nighttime definitely doesn’t add anything special or different to the experience.

2 – Kali River Rapids – Animal Kingdom

This one would still be fun to ride at night, but we prefer it during the day.  You will very likely get soaked when you ride the attraction, so you will want the sun to help dry you off so that you don’t have to walk around in wet clothes.  If it is cooler at night, then it could also be cold in wet clothes.  We like to ride this one during the heat of the day so that we get to cool off!

1 – Walt Disney World Railroad – Magic Kingdom

We definitely like riding the Walt Disney World Railroad during the day.  There are various details and extras that are themed to the different lands that you venture into, and we like being able to see all of those.  Riding the railroad is a great time to see more of the various lands while also getting from place to place.

Hi! I’m Kristin, 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. We vacationed at Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what maked more sense was 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.
