A to Z Obscure Disney World Tips: U

U is for: Universe of Energy

I guess this attraction qualifies as my dorky favorite.  You know, one of those rides that's not, like, great and it's totally dated, but for some reason you love it?  My tip today has two parts.  First is a warning that Ellen's Energy Adventure, the attraction in the Universe of Energy pavilion, is 45 minutes long.  That's really long---longer than most of the shows---so plan accordingly.

Also, if your kids dig dinosaurs but are too young for the Dinosaur! ride in Animal Kingdom, Ellen's Energy Adventure makes an excellent mild-mannered alternative.  You just have to put up with a bit of education.


Disney World Trivia
Name the three other celebrities in the opening movie with Ellen DeGeneres.

Bonus Question:
If they were to ever redo the opening movie for this ride, which cast of characters from a currently popular TV show do I think should totally be in it?
(Think about it...science...theories...c'mon, you can do this!)

Never been on that ride so I have no idea!

This is one of my favorite attractions. I am a sucker for the dinosaurs and Ellen is hilarious. I can't remember the other two but I think Bill Nye was one of the "contestants"

Thanks for reiterating that this ride is cool! I feel like I have to defend it all the time!

For your three celebrities, how about Jamie Lee Curtis, Bill Nye, and Alex Trebek!

I've never actually watched the Big Bang Theory (the show I assume you're referring to)...sometimes I wish I do!

Yes! But mine was torn down at Disneyland to make way for Nemo's Adventure or some such thing. :(
