5. Test Track

Test Track Preshow Design A Car Room Epcot Walt Disney World

Test Track has an incredibly interactive preshow that is incredibly fun for guests young and old alike, that even has an impact on the ride. In the preshow you are given the oppertunity to design a car, and have it compete with the car you will be riding during the actual ride. This is an experience that allows you to experiment and try new things every time you ride the attraction.

4. Dinosaur

Dinosaur is one of the underappriciated gems of Disney's Animal Kingdom, and one of its best parts is the preshow. This preshow is a comedic introduction to the ride's storyline, going back in time to save an Iguanadon from the metoer that killed the dinosaurs, and prominently features the ride's main character Dr. Seeker, and the style of humor used throughout the ride.

This preshow is full of fun, and transitions the attraction from the very different queue line and actual ride.

3. Soarin

Soarin Around the World Preshow Epcot Walt Disney World

Soarin's preshow has become iconic, being one of the few parts of the ride experience to be unchanged by the adjustment of the film portion of the ride when it became Soarin Around The World. Featuring the wonderful Flight Attendant character portrayed by Patrick Warburton who has become one of the most iconic original Disney Parks characters in this century. Featuring a nice mix of humor with an introduction of the ride that matches the tone of the film.

This preshow was kept amid the ride's redesign for a reason and it is still one of the best in Walt Disney World.
