Top 10 Rides at the Disneyland Resort

The Top Ten

1 Space Mountain Space Mountain Space Mountain is the name of a space-themed indoor roller coaster attraction located at five of the Magic Kingdom-style Disney Parks.

I went on it 7 times and I am going tommorw for it! - denicelove

I love this ride so much! It's fast, it's in the dark. The only problem I have with it, is that the ride is to short. - nintendofan126

It only goes 35 mph, between the speed of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom. - Kyle21

Space Mountain is easily the best. It's fun, dark, fast, thrilling, exciting, and just WONDERFUL!

California Screamin was better.

2 Splash Mountain

Not only does Splash Mountain have a huge amount of thrill, but it also tells a classic story along the ride. And of course, everyone that rides it feels much adrenaline right before the big drop!

Best ride ever in any park! Relaxing, fun, thrilling all in one. Long ride, I think its like 9 minutes long. When you hit the climax (the big drop) you may think the ride is over but it continues to go on. I could ride this thing all day long.

Splash Mountain, where do I begin? It's the best ride in the park. It tells a classic story, and the music and animatronics work so well. The smaller drops are great, and the big drop is just AMAZING! Overall, Splash Mountain couldn't get better. It is a masterpiece of storytelling, technology, and thrill.

The big drop was AWESOME!

3 Indiana Jones

I love this ride so much! I always have to make I go on it AT LEAST twice every time I go. This ride will not disappoint! It's always slightly different each time you go. I also always love figuring out what changed each time.

I LOVE IT! It's thrilling, the theming is creepy, the ride is always different, and the queue is great! It's so detailed and spectacular!

This is my favorite ride. Jungle cruise sucks. All they do is tell lies and bad jokes. Indiana Jones is so much better!

Too short of a ride to be epic!

4 Big Thunder Mountain

I can't beleave this is number ten I love this ride the first time I went to disneyland I went on this ride first I love this ride

LOVE! I can't enough of this ride. The thrill, effects, and track are amazing, and I've heard the goat trick is really neat. It's also long!

Good luck trying to avoid going on this ride more than once. - SamanthaW

I LOVE this ride it's SO much fun! It's my second favorite rude in all of Disneyland Redort (second to Radiator Springs Racers).

5 Pirates of the Carribean

If this ride does not have you singing "Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a Pirate's Life for Me", before, during, or after this ride, you really need to ride it again... and again... and again. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

The Pirates of the Caribbean (Pirates of The Caribbean) movies themselves have a similar look based off the ride of the same name because those movies have, you know, JOHNNY DEPP (Edward Scissorhands). - shelleyduvallfan10

This was pretty awesome but I'm looking forward to space mountain too

YESS. Pirates of The Caribbean is timeless. The storytelling, animatronics, drops, music, and build-up...just amazing. There is also the Blue Bayou restaurant inside the ride. I love how you traverse from the New Orleans bayou with the crickets chirping, to deeper into the ride. It is long, long enough to tell the story and create a classic experience.

6 Grizzly River Run

Underrated ride of awesomeness. No other ride in D-land has this many ride variables. Makes you feel as though you are in the wilderness with towering peaks, the smell pine trees, and even geysers.

GREAT in the summer. Lots of fun!

If you want to get wet, this is it! It has a variety of small drops so it's better than the avg water ride.

7 Haunted Mansion

I liked the Haunted Mansion Ride. It was amazing.

I love Haunted Mansion Holiday the best!

Best by far. - VanessaAmezcua

8 The Matterhorn

So many great things to say about this ride. First steel tubular roller coaster in the world! Glowing crystals, howling winds, splashing in an alpine lake, abominable snowmen! This attraction is a classic! I love the Matterhorn Bobsleds! It's a really fun attraction!

Love it!


9 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

This was remade into Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! - railfan99

Being on this ride was the greatest 4-5 minutes of my life! SO much adrenaline, and cool line/queue area.

U do know its now guardians of the galaxy right?

I wanted to ride this but it was closed when I visited in 2015. Now it’s closed forever :(

10 California Screamin'

I love this ride. some people call me a disney freak, because I go so much. but every time I go california screamin' is a must - aubreycm

It's the scariest ride we have in Disneyland now, and it's sure to get you screaming in fear and excitement.

This ride never gets old when we go! Not only is it thrilling, but you can't help but scream with excitement! - Lina1028

R.I.P. California Screamin, it had a good time, and Disney had to close it in 2018 for an Incredibles Ride.
And Why is Space Mountain #1? That ride’s punier.

The Contenders

11 Soarin Over California

It's so underrated! It feels like you're really flying, they do the effects SO well!

Now It's Soarin Around The World

I love it, feels like you're flying!

Even though it is like Avatar.But a little bit unlike.It should be the best ride in Epcot.I am closer to Dworld than Dland.

12 Radiator Springs Racers

Ok, how is this NOT #1? SERIOUSLY! It needs to be moved up! This is my favorite ride in all of Disneyland Resort. You begin the ride going through the brilliant landscaping of the Cadillac Mountain Range in Cars Land, and it's AMAZING, with the mountains and rock work and waterfalls, it's all so real! Then you go in the dark ride part which is awesome, and then finish going REALLY fast back through the mountain range, even sideways and over hills! This is easily the best ride Disney has ever created!

You only go 40 mph during the race, which is no faster than driving your car on your way to and from work on the road. - Gregory

This ride is awesome.

My favorite ride in the resort, second favorite ride in the world. The scenery, rockwork, and landscaping are so immersive and real. The dark ride part has high tech animatronics, awesome effects, and it LOOKS SO REAL! The outdoor race is SO THRILLING AND FUN!

13 Star Tours

Is this a joke? - DatRabidSlushie

14 Toy Story Mania
15 Goofy's Sky School

WHAT, this should be number 1 this is my favorite ride my dad took me and my brother holden to this ride and we didn't leave to go to the next ride until we went on it twenty times. - holdentiem

16 Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

That ride was totally awesome!

Like Aladdin, this classic dark ride is a real diamond in the rough at Unky Walt’s Magic Kingdom. What other ride at Disneyland puts you in the middle of an obscure Disney film and lets you drive like a madman until you hit a train and land in Hell?! I’ll have to admit, though, it’s beginning to show it’s age and it needs to be updated with animatronics and cutting-edge special effects. But nevertheless this is a fun filled ride that needs to stay! POOP POOP!

17 It's a Small World It's a Small World It's a Small World is a water-based dark ride located in the Fantasyland area at the various Walt Disney Parks and Resorts worldwide; these include: Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, more.

I think it creepy and can be annoying but I can respect for what it did for the Theme Parks, plus without Small World we wouldn't got the Pirates of the Caribbean as a boat ride. (It was gonna be a Wax Museum at first.)

This is the most classic Disneyland ride of all time everyone needs to respect that behind Sleeping Beauty Castle, this is what I think of, and I am sure most people feel the same whether they admit it or not

This ride is a Walt Disney classic

18 Autopia

It's not just a ride where you drive your own car, you go through a jungle and a car park and other pretend locations. I loved it!

A classic race car attraction thru a car park

19 Peter Pan's Flight

At Least Tic Toc The Crocodile Is Still In This Version
Stupid Disney World Took Tic Toc Out

20 Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin

I hated it. It should be closed down and replaced with Joy's Inside Out Adventures: The Ultimate INSIDE Story Behind Riley Anderson's Mind (a Disney Infinity platform-based sandbox adventure in which I step on the platform to play as a character in-game). - shelleyduvallfan10

I remember not expecting much from this ride, but I was wrong! The spinning is so much fun (you use the steering wheel), it's a long ride, and the dark ride is great!

Love it! It's a perfect mix of a spinning ride and a dark ride!

Funny bunny ride
