Many years ago, when my kids were babies and toddlers and I was researching the idea of homeschooling, I read a book that said that during the entire month of December you should just shelve the regular schoolwork and just do Christmas DIY projects and […]
Are you planning an adults-only Disney World trip and wondering if you should bother going to the Magic Kingdom? I get it. After all, it has a reputation for being the most kid-friendly Disney park. Maybe you’re wondering if you’d be bored — or worse, […]
As I mentioned in another post, I’ve always been an Alice in Wonderland fan. (Although I’m not particularly crazy about the Disney film. I don’t hate it or anything; it just doesn’t grab me.)
Interestingly, my oldest daughter went through a phase when she was five where she pretended to be Alice. She wore a blue dress, then tied a white long-sleeve t-shirt around her waist to give the appearance of an apron.
Then she’d go outside, ring the front doorbell, and say, “Hi! I’m Alice.”
If you know a young Alice fan, they might want to have an Alice in Wonderland themed party. It’s a great party theme, what with there being a tea party and all.
In this post you’ll discover several Alice party games and activities, plus some clever and delicious food and beverage ideas.
The Queen’s Guard Giant Playing Cards
The cool thing about a deck of cards is that there are so many different games you can play with them.
These jumbo-sized Alice in Wonderland themed playing cards come with an instruction booklet with 16 card games.
Because of their size and the illustrations on each card, they can also work great as decorations.
The White Rabbit’s Scavenger Hunt
This scavenger hunt game comes with metal keys that you can hide inside or outside of your house. (Or, if you prefer, you can hide treats or small toys instead.) Then kids get in teams and solve the riddles to find the hidden keys (or treats or toys).
Disney Mad Tea Party Game
This simple balancing game is designed for ages 5 and up. You can play with just 2 players or as many as 10. The game takes about 20 minutes to play.
There are 12 colorful teacups different sizes on an tilting tea party. Players take turns taking a card and following directions.
Paint Your Own Mini Tea Set
I don’t know about you, but I love getting together with a few friends and painting some ceramics. It’s both fun and peaceful — plus you have a pretty decoration when you’re done!
This ceramic tea set includes 13 pieces — a teapot, 4 cups and saucers, a sugar bowl and creamer. Brushes and paints are included as well.
Caucus Race Game
This is a great outdoor game from Simple Practical Beautiful. I particularly like it because it’s not an elimination game, where kids get “out” and then have to spend the rest of the game just standing there and watching.
Spread a bunch of hula hoops on the ground (as many hoops as there are players) and then have everybody walk around in a circle while music plays. (It’d be fun to play The Caucus Race Song, although of course you could play any music that you like.)
When the music stops, everyone needs to stand inside of a hula hoop. Then take away one hoop and do it again. Instead of someone being “out,” there will be two people inside one hula hoop.
Keep eliminating hoops until everybody has to stand inside one hoop when the music stops!

You’re wearing your sweaters and jeans (and possibly coats, depending on where you live), drinking pumpkin spice lattes, cooking a lot of soup, and raking up the leaves. Yes, it’s November, and there are a ton of fun seasonal activities you can can do with […]
“You’re obsessed with Alice in Wonderland,” one of my daughters said to me a couple years ago.
Well, I don’t think I’m obsessed, but I do have a particular fondness for the stories. (Yes, there are two separate stories that take place in two separate lands, despite what Disney would have you believe.)
Maybe it’s because when I was in fifth grade, our chorus class put on a version of the Disney musical. (I was a card.) And it helped that one of my friends (who was also a card), gave me a lovely hardback cover book of both stories, which I still have today.
I also just love some of the … language of it. How can you not love the poem “Jabberwocky”? When something exciting happens, I’ll sometimes actually say, “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
If you know — or are — an Alice in Wonderland fan as well, check out these great gift ideas. Some feature Disney-themed Alice characters, and others have the classic images from the original books by Lewis Carroll.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: A Pop-up Adaptation
This pop-up storybook is faithful to the original Lewis Carroll text,
One reviewer bought this book for her granddaughter and said it was the most spectacular book she’d ever seen:
… You aren’t going to believe your eyes when you thumb thru one!!!
… The pop ups are gi-normous and startling!!! Minute attention to every little detail!! Each and every page has an incredible pop-up, but what they don’t tell you is that several pages have mini-books-within-the-book that are a most pleasant surprise. What is this? On some pages there was a tiny book that further told the story and in vibrant colors and MORE pop-ups!
At her birthday party I passed the book around to all the parents and they were just blown away. Many took down the author’s name and will be buying his books from now on for presents for the children on their gift lists as well. My son says this book is a MUST READ every night at bedtime and is her most treasured possession. They are going to take very good care of it and pack it away so that someday she can pass it down to HER children. A TRUE heirloom from her grandma …

There are lot of different reasons that people choose, or prefer, one Disney park over the other. But one common question that comes up, especially for Disney first-timers, is “Which park has the most rides?”
And it makes sense. After all, you paid a lot of money for your tickets, and you want to pack as much fun into your day as possible.
And for a lot of people, “fun” at Disney World = rides.
In this post, you’ll learn which Disney park has the most rides, which park(s) have the least, and get an alphabetical list of rides for each park.
In addition, you’ll learn a little Disney trivia along the way, see some great ride photos, and learn how these ride numbers compare to Disneyland and Universal Studios.
✅ Which Disney Park Has the Most Rides?j,
Magic Kingdom has 23 rides (soon to be 24), making it the Disney park with the most rides.

If you’re looking at that list and feeling like something is missing, it’s because Primeval Whirl, a steel, Wild Mouse-style roller coaster located in DinoLand USA, was demolished. I’m glad to say that I rode it once, with one my daughters. I remember yelling, “Ow .. ow!!” pretty much the entire time.
At the time of this writing, I cannot find any information indicating that Disney plans to open a new attraction in Primeval Whirl’s place.
What Rides are in Epcot?
For those of us who old enough to remember when Epcot first opened, this is pretty striking that Epcot has ten rides.
According to Mickey Blog, when Epcot first opened in 1982, it has a grand total of three rides. Three!
The Original Rides on Epcot’s Opening Day Were:
Listen to the Land became Living with the Land in 1994. El Rio del Tiempo became lsee about Mexico and more about Donald Duck and his friend when it was transformed into Gran Fiesta Tour in 2007. And Spaceship Earth is expecting to be refurbished in 2023.
Video — Listen to the Land — Original Epcot Ride
Which Disney park has the most roller coasters?
Magic Kingdom is the park with the most roller coasters, with a total of four. (It will five soon, when Tron Lightcycle Power Run Coaster opens sometime in 2022.)
Magic Kingdom’s roller coasters, from slowest speed to fastest, are:
Yup, Space Mountain is just barely a little faster than The Barnstormer. Isn’t that crazy? It just feels faster because you can’t see where you’re going and the flashing lights kinda throw you off.
Epcot has only one roller coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. (The fact that Epcot has a roller coaster at all is kind of a big deal. It had zero roller coasters for 40 years before it finally got one!)
Animal Kingdom also has only one roller coaster, but it’s my favorite: Expedition Everest.
Hollywood Studios has two roller coasters:
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
- Slinky Dog Dash
What Disney World park has the least amount of rides?
It’s a tie between Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Each park has 8 rides.
✅ Which park has more rides, Disneyland or Disney World?
According to Reader’s Digest,
Overall, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park have over 90 rides and attractions, while Disney World features a total 165 rides and attractions.
This includes everything, including water park rides non-moving attractions.
If you compare Disneyland in California to Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (it’s comparable theme park in Florida), Magic Kingdom “wins” with a total of 55 rides, while Disneyland only has 41 rides.
While both theme parks share the same four lands (Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, and Adventureland) and share a lot of similar rides, each park also has some exclusive rides.
For example, you can only ride Mr. Toad’s Wild Road, Matterhorn Bobsleds, and Pinocchio’s Daring Adventure in Disneyland in California.
And you can only ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, or Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress in Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Florida.
✅ Who has more rides, Universal Studios or Disney?
Oooh, I think this is the very first time ever that I have typed “the U-word” on this blog!
I have nothing against Universal Studios; I’ve just never been there and know nothing about it.
But all that is going to change soon, because my youngest daughter and I will be taking our first trip to Universal in a few months!
Anyway, to answer the question: I read that there are 48 total rides at Universal. But (I think) this includes water park rides. If that’s the case, than Disney World has more total rides than Universal.
However, from what I understand, Universal definitely has more thrill rides than Disney World. (Which is one of the reasons we’re going. And the reason that my husband will be staying home.)
I hope you found this post helpful!
Even though I’ve had three babies of my own, t’s not often that I specifically write about baby-related stuff. (In fact, one of the few baby-themed posts I have, about taking an infant to Disney World, was written by interviewing other moms.) But I have […]
