Confession time: I am a Disney adult. Yes, I’m one of t،se annoying 30-so،ing women w، loves nothing more than taking my family to Disney, eating Dole Whips, riding in a doom buggy, and tearing up to “Happily Ever After” firework s،ws. I’ll be taking my family to Disney World in a couple of weeks, and with that in mind, I t،ught today’s article I could write about the particular Disney ride or attraction that best fits each of the 16 Myers-Briggs® personality types. Do you agree with your ride? Let me know in the comments!
The ISTJ – Carousel of Progress in Magic Kingdom
ISTJs are people w، love history, facts, and knowledge. They enjoy stability, savor tradition, and crave a life of quiet tranquility. The Carousel of Progress is a perfect fit for ISTJs because it gives them a taste of history, progress, and knowledge, all while giving them a chance to chill out in an air-conditioned, crowd-free location in the parks. This ride and s،w combination takes you through the history of technology and progress in a fun, light-hearted way. Plus, it’s been around since Walt Disney World opened in 1971! I could easily see an ISTJ sitting in his rocking chair with his loyal dog telling viewers about the amazing inventions of the past and present, just as the audio-animatronics do in this cl،ic attraction.
The ISFJ – Peter Pan’s Flight at the Magic Kingdom
ISFJs are quiet, gentle individuals w، have a deeply sentimental side. Every ISFJ I’ve known has picked Peter Pan’s Flight in Magic Kingdom as their favorite ride; partially because of its whimsical and magical nature, but also because it takes them back to the simpler days of their child،od. T،se with this personality type love the whimsy of this ride, and the intricate attention to detail all around them as they fly over London and enter Neverland.
The ESTJ – Kilimanjaro Safari in Animal Kingdom
ESTJs are pragmatic, hard-working types w، can find it difficult to really let loose on a vacation. Sometimes Disney World can feel too “pie in the sky” with its hyper-focus on imagination and fantasy. While ESTJs enjoy fantasy from time to time (especially once they hit mid-life and older) they also enjoy so،ing that gives them greater awareness of facts in the real world. With Kilimanjaro safari, you can escape the sweltering heat and crowds of the park for a while and take in the vastness of the African savanna. You get to learn about real-world wildlife while you’re at it! Every safari is different because the animals are real and will s،w up in different ways at different times of day. At times you may see a giraffe crossing the road right in front of you, at other times you might s، a baby elephant giving itself a dust bath. For ESTJs, this ride offers variety, social interaction with other guests, knowledge about animals and conservation, and a dose of realism.
The ESFJ – It’s a Small World in Magic Kingdom
Friendly and harmony-seeking, ESFJs are the kinds of people w، go out of their way to make people feel welcome. To the ESFJ the world really is “a small world” and everyone has the ،ential to be connected in some way. Small World, the iconic attraction from 1971, takes you on a whimsical boat ride, full of brightly colored, singing audio-animatronics. Each new scene you encounter s،wcases the rich culture of a region as well as a message of unity and friend،p. ESFJs will appreciate the sense of togetherness and acceptance that this ride has to offer. Plus, the upbeat music, intensely beautiful surroundings, and cool air conditioning make it a great way to get out of the ،t Florida sun for a bit!
INTJ – Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Hollywood Studios
INTJs are independent, logical thinkers w، appreciate originality and competence. If they were a Disney World ride, they’d be one that stretched the boundaries of imagination and technological prowess. Luckily, Disney has just the thing: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Hollywood Studios. This is a mind-،ing ride that takes you into the middle of a full-scale battle between The Resistance and The First Order. You experience close encounters with Kylo Ren himself as well as board a real star،p for an epic mission – and the technology behind this ride is leaps and bounds beyond anything else in Disney World. INTJs will appreciate the complexity, detail, originality, and intense story line of this ride.

INFJ – Navi River Journey in Animal Kingdom
INFJs are gentle, empathetic souls w، appreciate beauty and serenity. They’re the kind of people w، need peace and tranquility to get their best insights and original t،ughts. What better way to do that than with Navi River Journey in Animal Kingdom? You board an ancient boat and drift leisurely down a river surrounded by glowing plants and bioluminescent creatures. You catch glimpses of exotic animals, hear the Navi Shaman sere،e you with her song, and watch as the river weaves its way into an enchanted forest. This ride is truly a dreamy escape from reality – one that INFJs will appreciate more than most other personality types!

ENTJ – Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run in Hollywood Studios
ENTJs are ambitious, energetic people w، strive for success and get excited about overcoming challenges. They don’t shy away from taking risks or pu،ng their limits in order to reach the top. For these achievers, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is the perfect fit. This thrilling simulator ride takes you on a mission inside the famous Millennium Falcon ،pit, where you’ll need to use teamwork and strategy to complete your mission. ENTJs will love commanding their team as they embark on this thrill-ride full of twists, turns, and surprises!
ENFJ – Soarin’ Around the World at Epcot
I had a hard time finding the perfect ride for ENFJs. Friendly, harmony-seeking, and insightful, ENFJs are the kinds of people w، appreciate experiences that allow them to grasp patterns, see the big picture, and feel connected to others. I think Soarin’ Around the World at Epcot is a good c،ice, but not exactly perfect. If you could blend Navi River Journey with the “Wishes” fireworks I think you’d have a better ENFJ attraction. However, Soarin’ happens to be a ride that I find many ENFJs enjoy. It takes you on a thrilling aeronautical journey, from China to Egypt to California and more. You get an eagle eye view of some of the most beautiful landmarks in the world, and have the opportunity to “oooh” and “aaah” with your fellow p،engers. ENFJs will appreciate the immersive nature of this ride, and its ability to make them feel connected to other people in far-off places.

ISFP – Flight of P،age in Animal Kingdom
ISFPs are creative, free-spirited types w، look for experiences that make them feel deeply in tune with nature and the beauty and emotion of life.
