Top 5 Highest Rated EPCOT Attractions for Adults

Share This!

Walt Disney World isn’t just for the young, but also for the young at heart! Yes, a Walt Disney World Vacation has more to offer adults than Dumbo the Flying Elephant and spinning teacups. In addition to award-winning dining and luxury resort hotels, Disney World offers signature quality and service where everything is an experience.

A number of adults shared their opinions about the dining and attractions at Walt Disney World for our Touring Plans Lines 2.0 app, and I’ve compiled a list of the highest-rated attractions based on those ratings. So which ones made the cut? And will you agree with our user ratings? Let’s take a look!

5. Living with the Land

Living with the Land

Living with the Land is a slow-moving indoor boat ride through sets and a working greenhouse educating guests about agriculture and its impact on the earth.

Living with the Land is a bit of a surprise, especially since it beat out newer attractions and fellow classic Spaceship Earth located inside of the park’s icon.

Young Adults Rating: 3.9

Adults Over 30 Rating: 4.2

Seniors Rating: 4.3

Why Do Adults Love Living with the Land?

Living with the Land is an EPCOT classic. Despite its old school style and focus on agriculture, Living with the Land offers multiple experiences from simulated ecosystems to a floating tour through greenhouses featuring Mickey-shaped produce. It’s relaxing, it rarely has a long wait, and it’s actually interesting!

4. Frozen Ever After

Frozen Ever After is a slow-moving boat ride featuring characters and songs from Disney’s 2013 film Frozen.

Living with the Land and Frozen Ever After is right on par with one another in rankings, but younger adults understandably score Frozen Ever After a little higher than Living with the Land while Seniors score it a little lower.

Young Adults Rating: 4.1

Adults Over 30 Rating: 4.2

Why Do Adults Love Frozen Ever After?

Frozen Ever After

This attraction is definitely geared towards kids, but the animatronics coupled with boats backward movement and small drop offers enough to prevent older guests from getting bored. Plus, the air-conditioning and the icy-themed atmosphere is what every adult craves in the Florida heat.

3. Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival

At the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival, guests enjoy 3 short films in 3D coupled with a few theater effects for about 18 minutes.

So are you surprised this attraction ranked so high? Same. But hey, it is Pixar, right?

Young Adults Rating: 4.1

Adults Over 30 Rating: 4.2

Seniors Rating: 4.4

Why Do Adults Love the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival?

Despite the fact these shorts can be found online, now that I think of it the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival offers air conditioning and the chance to sit down for 18 minutes. After trekking around World Showcase, what adult wouldn’t love that?

2. Test Track

Test Track

Feel the need for speed? Test Track allows guests to design their own car and put it through a series of tests. The finale is a high-speed drive around the pavilion topping at 65 mph!

Young Adults Rating: 4.6

Adults Over 30 Rating: 4.5

Seniors Rating: 4.4

Why Do Adults Love Test Track?

Test Track is a great attraction for adults who don’t necessarily handle thrill rides well. Despite the sound of the cars zooming outside the building, the ride simulates tame versions of automotive tests. The finale lap builds up to a top speed of 65 mph as opposed to maintaining that speed through the attraction. Most adults drove that fast themselves on their way to the park that morning.

1. Soarin’

Soarin’ is an elevated simulated hang-glider tour around the world! This popular EPCOT attraction lifts guests into the air and uses gentle motion, scents, and wind effects to create the sensation of flight as they take in an aerial view of world landmarks shown on a 180-degree, 80-foot IMAX digital projection dome.

This is no surprise. Soarin’ has long been one of the park’s most popular attractions, especially among adults.

Young Adults Rating: 4.7

Adults Over 30 Rating: 4.8

Seniors Rating: 4.8

Why Do Adults Love Soarin’?

Soarin’ Entrance

Soarin’ manages to both relaxing and exhilarating as opposed to thrilling. And it’s hard not to love swooping over gorgeous scenery from all around the world to that stirring soundtrack. The only way to make this flight better is if they served snacks.

Do you agree with our Lines 2.0 app ratings? Which of these attractions would you rate as the highest? Let us know in the comments!

  • Mission Space: Orange Mission was at the top of our list. Pulling 2.5Gs was a blast, we were screaming our heads off. If you’re an adult in reasonable good shape, you have to do this ride.

    • We plan on coming there in May and would like to know if you offer adult themed attraction packages for one day

  • Living With the Land is my second-favorite ride in all of WDW, but that Spaceship Earth – my No. 1 in all WDW – isn’t on here automatically makes the list bogus for me.

  • I miss the show at the Norway pavilion…and the old ride ( you are not the first to pass this way…nor will you be the last…) it was a pleasure to learn something about the country, similarly the film show in the France pavilion. I love “ Soaring” but you need to know where to sit to avoid mis shaped animals and famous land marks!
