Best Disney World Rides for Teens

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a top pick for teens.

If you’re the parent of a teenager, then you know that sometimes, teens can be a little “too cool for school” when it comes to Disney World. They might view it as a place for babies and little kids, and loudly declare it as such.

But the good news is that Disney World has done an excellent job of adding attractions that teenagers will love. Here’s our list of top attraction for thrill-seeking teens at Disney World.

  • Just stumbled upon your site. So awesome!

    I went on Dinosaur when I was a teenager (It was called Countdown to Extinction back then) So This lady who didn’t speak English screamed bloody murder at the point where a brontosaurus pops his head out and the announcer dude said “don’t worry he won’t hurt you he’s a herbaviore.”

    Now it is tradition to scream at the top of our lungs at that part in the ride.

  • You’ve posted a great list of teen-friendly attractions! And don’t forget all of the great things for teens to do outside the parks – like the Miniature Golf Courses, for example!
