An Upgraded Points study, conducted in March 2021 across U.S. residents of various ages (18 and older) and genders, determined which Disney World rides were most popular. The survey participants were asked to name their favorite ride overall from Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, as well as their favorite ride in each specific park.
Overall, the favorite was the Magic Kingdom when participants were asked to rate their most favorite Walt Disney World ride regardless of park location. Of the Top 10 most popular rides overall, all but one was located in the Magic Kingdom.
The Top 5 rides overall were:
