1.Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Located in Frontierland, the haunted Big Thunder Mountain Railroad races over hills, through tunnels, and into a cursed cavern. Speeding along a rickety track, you’ll whip under a waterfall and just narrowly miss crashing boulders.

Watch out for the unexpected landslide as you drop into canyons and enter the eerie mines, the ghostly remnants of the 1850s Gold Rush.

2.Disneyland® Railroad

Disneyland® Railroad

A treat for the young and the young at heart, you’re simply never too old to hop on the authentic steam-powered train and take-in a pleasant and scenic journey around Disneyland® Resort on the Disneyland® Railroad.

You’ll pass by the banks of the majestic Mississippi, Columbia, Missouri, and Rio Grande rivers while taking in the beautifully crafted landscapes, complete with native rock formations, wildlife, and stunning waterfalls.

You can hop on or off the train at any of the four stations, located at Main Street, USA, New Orleans Square, Mickey’s Toontown, and Tomorrowland.

3.Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission: BREAKOUT

The Collector has kidnapped the Guardians of the Galaxy, and it is your objective to break them out. With the help of Rocket, you’ll go on a thrilling rescue mission and unleash intergalactic mayhem, all while listening to one of Star-Lord’s classic mixtapes.

4.Haunted Mansion

Are you brave enough to take a seat on a Doom Buggy and ride through the Haunted Mansion? The walls have eyes, and the house is watching you as you journey through an unearthly realm, guided by the Ghost Host.

Rattling caskets, a spooky séance room, waltzing apparitions, and a creepy cemetery await you, just make sure that none of the phantoms try to follow you home!

5.Space Mountain

The perfect choice for any roller coaster fans on your trip, Space Mountain, located in Disneyland® Resort’s Tomorrowland, is a guaranteed thrill for old and young alike.

On this high-speed adventure, you will tear through space, fending off crossfire from Rebel X-wing starfighters and Imperial TIE fighters. After a briefing from Admiral Ackbar, you must aid the Rebel Alliance by flying your very own reconnaissance vessel.

But watch out: Any wrong turn will lead you to a trap that ends in a barrage of enemy fire.

Remember, Hyperspace Mountain is only open for a limited time, and franchise fans will need to hurry to catch this incredible experience before it makes the jump to hyper-speed!



Head over to the beautiful Pixar Pier to join the fantastic family of Incredibles as they try desperately to catch up with Jack-Jack, their wonder-baby, as he uses his various gifts to wreak havoc on the pier. This high-speed chase will have you racing, flying, zipping, and careening to save the day as Jack-Jack’s powers get further out of control.

The Incredicoaster is both the only coaster at Disneyland® Resort that features a full inversion as well as the park’s fastest ride, reaching speeds of up to 55 mph. Its impressive 6,072-foot length makes it the longest inverting roller coaster in the world, and it should be at the top of the list for any serious thrill-seekers who visit the park.

7.Indiana Jones™ Adventure

Join the legendary Indiana Jones™ in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye on this iconic high-speed enhanced motion vehicle ride. Watch out for booby traps, inspect the ancient carvings, and beware of Mara, the powerful deity who promises great treasure.

Are you ready to risk facing Mara’s vengeance, the Chamber of Destiny, precipices over molten lava, raging mummies, swarms of insects, and collapsing bridges? If you answered yes to one (or all!) of the above, then hop on board the rugged troop transport and hope that Indiana Jones™ is around to save you in case you encounter any likely trouble.

8.Pirates of the Caribbean

From the beloved films to an incredible ride that awaits you in Disneyland® Resort’s Magic Kingdom, Pirates of the Caribbean is a dark ride attraction that brings the swash-buckling action of your favorite rum-guzzling pirates to life.

Your adventure in the shadowy bayou begins when you board a seemingly inconspicuous weathered barge, only to plunge down a towering waterfall and enter the world of Pirates Grotto, where dead men are known to protect their treasure at all costs and the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow seeks to get his hands on the spoils.

As one of the most immersive attractions created for the theme park, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride can be enjoyed by all ages.
