    Conquer the Heat – The ‘Coolest’ Attractions Around 

    Guess what? Florida is hot. And that’s not going to change anytime soon. So until it does, here are some places for cooling off + relaxing in the parks.

    Ellen’s Energy Adventure
    Alright so maybe the jokes are a little corny, and maybe the effects are a tad outdated. But still this is the ultimate place to get refreshed.

    Including the pre-show, it lasts an astonishing 45 minutes – giving you plenty of time to rest the weary leg muscles and soak up as much air conditioning as you can.

    Spaceship Earth
    Another long one here. Lasting about 25 minutes from start to finish, Spaceship Earth is a great relaxer. This ride also stops fairly frequently for handicapped guests, etc. so that might get you even more time to cool off.

    If you’re bored one day, do what I do: just change the language and listen to the spiel in French, Spanish, or Portuguese. Very entertaining.

    Club Cool
    While not necessarily an “attraction”, Club Cool is located near the Fountain of Nations at Epcot.

    Not only is it an indoor area where you can cool off for as long as you want, but also they have fountains of soft drinks from around the world – for free and with unlimited refills. It’s really one of the hidden gems at Epcot.

    3D/4D Films
    That’s right – Mickey’s PhilharMagic, It’s Tough to be a Bug, MuppetVision, & Honey I Shrunk the Audience Captain EO all last fairly long and are very cool. If you get my draft…er drift. Plus the wonderful smell of apple pie doesn’t hurt either!

    Where do you go? Of course there are many more attractions and other places that are great for cooling off – what are your favorites?

      I am also fond of The Land pavillion, The relatively short lineups for the Living with the Land and Circle of Life make them good targets.

      Plus all lineups are inside, making them more attractive than say Spaceship Earth which can have you outside for quite a while on a busy day before your 20 min cooloff.

        Ah yes Darren – I forgot about The Land Pavilion. It’s a great cooling off place.

        Lots of things to do there and as you said all of the lines are inside as well.

        (P.S. This is the 600th comment on WDW Central…woah!)

      Hi Matt!
      I would say that the Mexican attraction (not called “El Rio del Tiempo” anymore) is also good for some “cool” moments.
      But how could you forget about the Haunted Mansion!? LOL
      Is one of the greatest rides for some cooling off.

      • Matt 3:10 pm on July 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Ah yes you mean Gran Fiesta Tour – great idea John – that’s an awesome place to cool off!

        I know, right! Haunted Mansion is my FAVORITE attraction ever and I left it off the list. I must have not been thinking straight! 😉

        • John 2:48 pm on July 7, 2010 Permalink

          Oh yes, the Gran Fiesta Tour! I had forgotten this name. It was a nice update to this ride, except the fact that one of the characters, the parrot “Zé Carioca”, is actually Brazilian, not Mexican. But that’s part of the fun.

          I just remembered of the Great Movie Ride as another cool attraction!

        • Matt 10:47 am on July 8, 2010 Permalink

          It was, I think the ride is great. A lot less serious than the original.

          Great Movie Ride – another “great” one! =D

    • bridgetzoe 8:59 am on July 10, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I discovered that The American Adventure attraction is a great place to cool off (and listen to some great singers beforehand) during the summer.

      • Matt 9:54 am on July 10, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Oh yes, another nice one! You’re right, the singers that are sometimes there beforehand are amazing. =)

    Disney’s Awesome Things #17: Zipping Along the People Mover 

    #17Many argue that it’s the intense rides that make Disney. I beg to differ. While those are fun, it’s definitely the peaceful relaxing attractions that you’ll enjoy most. For instance, the TTA.

    Say whatever you want about how awesome Tower of Terror or Space Mountain is – but I’ll be completely satisfied on the zippy Tomorrowland Transit Authority, aka the People Mover.

    It’s almost as if all your cares go down the drain as you are zipping along the twisty magnetic track observing the crowds, lines, and rides. And the fact that it’s half air-conditioned doesn’t hurt either.

    It’s a blast through the future and an awesome attraction that should never be missed.

      One of my favorite things!! 🙂 Just rode it yesterday and it was fantastic!

        Wow Melissa, just yesterday, huh? You’re lucky. 😉

        • Melissa 7:19 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink

          Yeah, I just moved so whereas I used to live 45 minutes from Disney, I now live 15…and with an annual pass nothing good can come from that lol.

        • Matt 8:50 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink

          15 minutes away?! That’s awesome – I thought I had it good being 3 hours away. Congrats on the move, then! =D

    • Nancy 6:23 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I so agree with this! One of the things I love about it is the corny lines like “paging Tom Morrow”…. always makes me smile. I will say that another thing about the TTA that makes it very useful is the ability to ride it and “see” the inside of Space Mountain….which when we had a 7 year old who was “not sure” if she wanted to ride SM, helped her decide that maybe she would just wait until another year. Beats having a terrified child on your hands…..Thanks for the reminder of this great little ride!

      • Matt 7:16 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Thanks Nancy! It’s too bad the “Tom Morrow” line is gone in the new version. =(

        It’s also a great spy tool for when Space Mountain is broken down! 😉

    • gaylin 8:58 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I love the TTA, it always feels like I am above the noise, 2 in a car, I can put my feet up and even on the hottest day there seems to be a breeze.

      I also love riding it when I get to go to the Not So Scary Hallowen Party, it has a great view of all things spooky.

      • Matt 9:02 pm on July 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Gaylin – yeah one of my favorite things to do is put my feet up. GREAT way to relax!

        Also, thanks for the liking WDW Central on Facebook. It means a lot to me. =)

      Love the TTA… still call it Wedway people mover though! 🙂

        I think most people call it the People Mover…LOL

    • Figgs 10:37 am on May 16, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      I LOVE the People Mover. It’s a great way to unwind on a slow ride that people don’t realize takes you up close to and THROUGH a couple of attractions in Tomorrowland!

    In Depth: The Complexity and Technical Genius Behind Theme Park Music 

    I love Disney theme park music. In fact it’s most definitely the “genre” of music that fills the most space in my iPod. And the sad part is, it plays constantly all day with little to no recognition.

    So here’s a little info about the music geniuses behind it all and a quick showcase of the awesome music itself.

    Bruce Broughton

    Bruce Broughton is one of the creative minds behind the music heard in the theme parks. More specifically, he was the composer for the following:

    • O Canada! Film – 2007 Arrangement (World Showcase, Epcot)
    • Spaceship Earth (Future World, Epcot)
    • One Man’s Dream (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
    • Ellen’s Energy Adventure (Future World, Epcot)
    • Honey, I Shrunk the Audience! (Future World, Epcot)
    • The Timekeeper (Extinct – Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom)
    • The Making of Me (Extinct – Future World, Epcot)

    These are arguably some of the best themes in the parks. Spaceship Earth, Ellen’s Energy Adventure, and Honey, I Shrunk the Audience are some of my all-time favorites.

    Sherman Brothers

    Another theme park legend (among other things) here, Robert and Richard Sherman are responsible for so many catchy themes of the theme parks. There include:

    • “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” (Carousel of Progress, MK)
    • “It’s a Small World” (it’s a small world, Magic Kingdom)
    • “One Little Spark” (Journey Into Imagination, Epcot)
    • “Chim Chim Cher-ee” (Great Movie Ride, DHS)
    • “The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room” (Enchanted Tiki Room, Magic Kingdom)
    • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (All Songs)

    As a matter of fact it was “One Little Spark” that made me realize the complexity of the theme park music. I posted this on #ConfessFriday on Twitter one day. I got back a couple of responses, but one that stood out to me was by @ThemeParkDaily who said this:

    “Not nerdy at all, lots of Disney Park music is technically brilliant.”

    Very true, I think. Now let’s take a look at our final composers.

    Xavier Atencio + Buddy Baker

    More commonly known as “X” Atencio, he and Baker composed one of my favorite tunes and rides – “Grim, Grinning Ghosts” in The Haunted Mansion. X also wrote the lyrics to “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)”, while Baker arranged the music for Impressions de France.

    Your thoughts?

    It’s sometimes hard to recognize and appreciate the Disney theme park music because it is always so well integrated and themed that we don’t consciously notice it. But that’s what makes it work so well, and that’s why it’s so complex.

    What are your thoughts? What is your favorite music in the parks? Share your thoughts on all this in the comments.

      I have a soft spot for One Little Spark. I love all of Epcot’s music, but my favorite Disney Park music of all time has to be the BGM in Innoventions Plaza. It’s just so catchy that whenever I walk through the plaza, I have to clap along to the music!

        One Little Spark is great. But I do have to agree with you, Innoventions BGM is my all time favorite. I listen to the entire 50 minute loop almost everyday!

      I quadruple-love the theme park music. I love the Epcot entrance music (on one of my many CDs). And let’s not forget the parade music! The Millennium parade at Epcot remains one of my favorite songs.

        Parade music is great – I definitely agree! IllumiNations is also a great soundtrack. My favorite parade music is Fantillusion (in Disneyland Paris).

      There are lots of great music throughout the parks, but for me, two were outstanding:
      – The music played in the exit of Fantasmic;
      – And the Spaceship Earth Finale, that unfortunately doesn’t play anymore.

        Hey John the Spaceship Earth finale music was great. But I also like the new version (that plays in the background of your future video) just as much. 🙂

    The Ultimate Way to Have Awesome Vacations 

    I’m about to tell you a secret. If you’ve been in a “vacation rut” it’s almost guaranteed to make your vacations more fun + memorable. It’s simple & easy to do. Here it is –

    Do something brand new each time you go

    It almost sounds too simple, right? But it’s a time-tested idea (by me) that is proven (by me) to be very effective. It can be hard at first, but trust me it’s well worth it.

    If you don’t know where to get started, just pick one thing you’ve never done. This could be anything from an attraction, a parade, fireworks show, restaurant, event, or anything in between.

    For example, a couple trips ago my family and I did something totally new – we took a break from Epcot, headed over to Wilderness Lodge for an awesome lunch at Whispering Canyon Cafe, and then took the boat from there to the Magic Kingdom.

    It’s simple, but it works.

    Once you do one different thing, it will put some life back into your vacation. Then for the next trip you’ll want to try something else new – and before you know it, not only will you have had a blast on many trips, but you will also have discovered and explored tons of things at Disney you never thought about before.

    So what are you waiting for? Go try something new and see what extra magic you will discover.

      Awesome post! On my last trip, my mom and I were at Epcot in World Showcase. We had time to kill before a reservation at the Coral Reef and didn’t know what to do. We decided to take one of the FriendShip boats back to Future World instead of just walking. I had never been on them before since it’s usually faster to just walk. Those little FriendShip boats are actually pretty nice! 😀

        Thanks Caitlin! I have been on the FriendShip boats a couple times before and they are very nice. It’s a great break from walking and it cools you off as well.

        It’s a cool little thing to discover, that’s for sure. =)
