The People Mover Is The Best Ride At Walt Disney World

It's the unsung hero at nap time, during rainstorms, when you're tired, and so many other reasons.

Every time I go to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort, the wait times for rides like Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Haunted Mansion can easily reach over an hour, however there's one ride that's always ready for a ride...

The People Mover.

Sure, it could seem to have a lengthy line that snakes around the Astro Orbiter base, but the reality is, it moves quickly. 

Think about how many times you've been at the Magic Kingdom and realize how tired you are or how hot it is and you say, "Hey let's do the People Mover!" 

It's a pretty lengthy ride that takes you around Tomorrowland into air conditioned tunnels and covered tracks that keep out the brutal Florida sun.

Raining? No problem! You'll barely get wet on the outside portion as it's a covered track and the inside areas are bone dry. 

Kid need a nap but won't take one?

Hop on the People Mover and they'll surely fall asleep and then you can carry them to the stroller for a nap.

The People Mover deserves so much more recognition than it gets as it really is the MVP at the Magic Kingdom.
