These 6 attractions can not be found at any other Disney park in the world, they are only at Disneyland and California Adventure. Some of the other parks have their own versions of these rides but none are quite like these originals.
Indiana Jones Adventure
Join Indy as you travel through the Temple of the Forbidden Eye. You will cross over molten lava, collapsing bridges, and narrowly escape from being squashed by a massive rolling boulder.
Disney tip: There are a lot of original props from the movie throughout the queue line. The German Patrol Truck outside of the temple was actually used in the filming of Raiders of the Lost Ark. As you exit the attraction, you’ll also catch the old mining car from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Get ready for some awesome twists, turns, and the elusive Abominable Snowman! This six-person bobsled climbs 80 feet into the air, swooping in and out of shadowy caves and cavernous pathways
Disney tip: Try riding this ride at night for a whole new hair-raising experience! Also, both tracks are different so be sure to try both sides of the mountain!
Take a stroll down the boardwalk inspired by your favorite Pixar films. Teens love the new and improved Incredicoaster and for the little ones, try out Jessie’s Critter Carousel. One of our personal favorite rides is Toys Story Mania, play a virtual game up against family and friends!
Disney tip: There are so many Instagram-worthy backdrops at Pixar Pier. Also, grab an ice cream from the Adorable Snowman Shack, you won’t be disappointed.
Guardians Of The Galaxy- Misson Breakout!
As you help Rocket break out his friends, you’ll notice all of the fun special effects and breathtaking free-fall drops all while listening to the movie’s soundtrack! This ride is such an amazing upgrade to the park, and the 80’s music makes it just makes it that much better!
Disney tip: Keep your hands up in the air for an extra thrill. You will lift out of your seat for roughly 3 seconds. If you have a small backpack, hold it with one hand in the air. You will feel it float above your head. Just don’t let go!
Cars Land is such a fun and unique area. Enter your vehicle at one of the many attractions like Radiator Springs Racers, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, or Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters for a fun time!
Disney tip: At Radiator Springs Racers, get a Fastpass for this ride early in the morning. They tend to run out of them by 12:00 PM.
World Of Color Nighttime Spectacular
This is a wonderful waterworks show inspired by Disney and Pixar stories. Approximately 1,200 fountains of water shoot gracefully into the air coinciding with vibrant lasers, pyrotechnics, and classic Disney music.
Disney tip: Get access to a reserved viewing area by grabbing a Fastpass or World of Color Dining Package voucher! Fastpass machines can be found near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure.
