A Complete Guide To Disney World’s Adventureland

Disney World and the Magic Kingdom are filled with so much detail and so many things to see or do around every corner. For that reason I am breaking down the fun land by land. Here I take a look at Adventureland, one of the lands in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. 

Adventureland inspires thoughts of trekking through the jungle, sailing the seas on a pirate ship, or visiting far off places. The theming wants you to feel a sense of adventure, excitement and exploration. So grab your hiking boots, your pith helmet, and maybe even your sword and lets head off on an adventure. 

Location

First thing first, where will you find Adventureland? The land is in Magic Kingdom park. Walk straight down Main Street and as you approach the Castle hub you will want to make a left. You will cross a bridge over the castle moat, which has one of my favorite views of Cinderella’s Castle. You will see a large sign overhead tell you that you are now in Adventureland. This land has a great location for it to be either the first or the last land you visit for the day. 

If you are entering the land from the other side you will come in through the Frontierland entrance. Round the corner to the left, past the path to Splash Mountain and you will see Adventureland. 

Attractions

Jungle Cruise 

  • Any Height
  • FastPass + Available 
  • Accessibility: May remain in wheelchair/ECV. Translation assistance available. 

This classic throwback attraction will take you on a river journey though Africa, Asia, and South America. You will see lots of animatronic animals on this slow paced adventure. The real star of the show here is your Skipper who narrates your ride live. Be ready for lots of puns and corny jokes and lots of fun. 

Swiss Family Treehouse 

  • Any Height
  • Accessibility: Must be ambulatory, beware lots of steps and narrower walkways

Climb to the heights of the Swiss Families arboreal home and see all of their clever inventions. This walk through attraction is a nice activity with no wait, but lots of steps to climb. This can be a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the park. Children with no connection to the film may be board. I enjoy all of the detail put into each part of the tree house and the views of the Magic Kingdom from the top. 

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

  • Any Height
  • Accessibility: Must transfer to wheelchair 

This is your chance to see the world from a magic carpet just like Aladdin. This ride is essentially the classic Dumbo attraction but with a magic carpet. However, a group of four can all ride on the same carpet. The views are fun, especially during the fireworks. Watch out for the camel as you approach this attraction … it spits! 

Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room 

  • Show 
  • Any Height
  • Accessibility: May remain in wheelchair/ECV. Translation assistance available. 

Those who love or want to learn Disney history this is a must do. The Tiki Room was a Walt Disney designed attraction at Disneyland and the birds were some of the first audio-animatronics ever created. While the technology is outdated today this show has a lot of nostalgic charm. Little kids will likely enjoy the singing but pre-teen and teens will likely be board. But to really appreciate how far Disney theme parks have come I recommend seeing the show. 

Pirates of the Caribbean

  • Any Height
  • FastPass + Available 
  • Accessibility: Must transfer to standard wheelchair and then to ride vehicle. Audio assistance available

Journey to the Caribbean with Captain Jack Sparrow and his fellow pirates. The ride pre-dates the blockbuster movies but Jack Sparrow has been added a few places in the ride, see if you can spot him throughout. This ride has some mild thrills and you may get a little wet. Some of the themes might be a bit scary for little ones. This is one of the longer rides at the park which is a big plus. The line and the ride are a great place to get out of the heat or rain. This ride is always consistently popular and a must do for me. This ride also has a photo pass photo. 

Food

Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen:

  • Table Service 
  • Reservations Suggested 
  • Lunch & Dinner
  • Food Style: African, Asian, Latin American

The theming here is very unique and make sure to pay close attention to the details because there are many. The butterfly collection here comes from Walt’s wife Lillian Disney’s collection. The food here is also unique for Magic Kingdom, with many more flavorful and varied options than at many the other table service locations. Make sure to check the menu before deciding to dine here to ensure it matches your pallet. This location is great for plant-based diners with more options than most locations. If you are looking for a “foodie” experience this is your best bet. You can also enjoy an alcoholic beverage with your meal. 

 Tortuga Tavern:

  • Counter Service / Quick Service 
  • Indoor & Outdoor Seating
  • Lunch & Dinner 
  • Food Style: American 

This Caribbean and pirate themed restaurant is a great place to grab the classic turkey leg. This is a perfect stop for a big Pirates of the Caribbean fan. The menu here is slim but the offerings are good. Watch out for Captain Jack Sparrow as he is a frequent visitor to Tortuga you often find him nearby.

Aloha Isle:

  • Counter Service / Quick Service
  • Food Style: Snacks & Treats 
  • Mobile Order Available 

Home of the Dole Whip and it’s various varieties. Dole whip is a pineapple flavored soft serve ice like like treat. It is a Disney classic and a park favorite. You will even find Dole Whip merchandise in the stores. It is a personal favorite of mine. 

Sunshine Tree Terrace:

  • Counter Service / Quick Service
  • Food Style: Snacks & Treats 
  • Mobile Order Available

 Home of the Dole Whip’s cousin the Citrus Swirl and its adorable mascot Orange Bird.
