Indoor attractions offer a warm welcome for Walt Disney World visitors braving the cold temperatures

By Heather Leigh Carroll-Landon

There are many indoor activities to enjoy at Walt Disney World that will help keep guests warm as they suffer through the chilling temperature Central Florida is currently experiencing. Temperatures are dipping into the low 40s and even lower in some areas. Keeping warm sometimes becomes a mission while trying to enjoy the shorter lines and minimal crowds at the theme parks this time of year.

What are some of the best indoor attractions at Walt Disney World that will have the heat on for guests? Check some of them out below.

Magic Kingdom

There are many indoor shows to help warm up the blood while wandering through the Magic Kingdom Park. Warm shows include The Enchanted Tiki Room, The Hall of Presidents and Mickey's Philharmagic. If not interested in seeing some of the shows, check out the following indoor rides: Peter Pan's Flight, Snow White's Scary Adventure, Winnie the Pooh, it's a small world, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.

Theme Park Warmth Tip #1: While at the Magic Kingdom Park (or any of the others) do not forget to drink lots of hot chocolate to warm up. Hot cocoa at Disney World is the best! (Click Read More)


There are lots of attractions at Epcot that are indoors including two of the longest (time wise) ride at the park - Spaceship Earth and Ellen's Energy Adventure. Guests can also warm up while riding Journey Into Your Imagination or while watching the shows available at The Land Pavilion, the China Pavilion and Canada's Pavilion.

Theme Park Warmth Tip #3: Need to warm up quick? Duck into one of the many bathrooms at all four of the theme parks. During this time of year Disney really runs the heat in their bathrooms and are definitely a great place for a quick warm up.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Many shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios are indoors making it a great park to keep warm. Enjoy The Great Movie Ride, Playhouse Disney, Toy Story Mania, American Idol Experience, Little Mermaid, Star Tours, Muppet 3*D and a few other indoor shows.

Theme Park Warmth Tip #4: Been outside too long and extremely cold? Take time out of the day and enjoy a long meal at one of the many heated restaurants.

Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park

There are many indoor shows at Disney's Animal Kingdom, including It's Tough to Be a Bug and Finding Nemo the Musical. However, this is not a winter theme park experience recommended by the Walt Disney World Travel Examiner, due to the face that many attractions are outside. For those willing to bear the cold weather, this is a great time to visit Animal Kingdom because there are almost no lines, anywhere in the park.

Theme Park Warmth Tip #4: Skip the theme parks all together and head on over the DisneyQuest, where guests can enjoy five stories of video game entertainment inside.
