5. Splash Mountain:  Located in Magic Kingdom, this ride is a river ride.  As you float along the river you encounter drops and awesome scenery.  If it were not for the final HUGE drop towards the end, this ride probably would not have made the list. That last big drop is such a thrill, I could not leave it off.

3. Space Mountain:   Located in Magic Kingdom, this roller coaster is a classic, it zips you through complete darkness with many turns and small drops.  The thrill of this ride is the unknown, you never know which way you are going, or where the drops are.  One of my all time favorites.

2. Tower of Terror: located in Hollywood Studios, this ride makes the list because of it’s dark and unexpected drops.  To make it even better, the drops change from ride-to-ride.  This means you cannot anticipate when the drops will happen each time you ride.  AHHH, it is so exciting!!!

1. Expedition Everest: located in Animal Kingdom tops the list.  This ride has the biggest drop of all the Walt Disney World rides, in addition to the huge drop you experience, you also get shot backwards into the darkness with some crazy twists and turns.  If you get motion sickness, this one might push you over the edge, it does for me!  My tip for those that get motion sickness: take some Dramamine before you ride, it makes a world of difference in your enjoyment levels.
