5 Best Themed Rides At The Disneyland Resort

These are my selections as the best themed rides at the Disneyland Resort. The order may change from person to person but this list will probably be fairly consistent as it is made up of the usual suspects.

1) Pirates of the Caribbean:  From the time I was about 8 years old, Pirates has been the ride for me. A gift from Walt Disney himself. The Johnny Depp/Jack Sparrow add ons were not necessary.

2) The Haunted Mansion:  I'm not a huge HM fan personally but no one can say the place doesn't drip with as much detail as any ride in the park.

3) Hollywood Tower of Terror:  The anxiety builds the moment you step through the front door.

4) Indiana Jones Adventure:  A rollicking fun ride that has theming up the wazoo. 

5) Peter Pan's Flight:  The quintessential Disneyland dark ride for all ages. There's a reason the lines are always long. You can fly....

Honorable Mentions:  Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain Railroad - mountains of fun and Disney magic.


  1. Although I haven't officially ranked the Disneyland themed rides, I would have to say that mine would be right in line with yours. Perhaps Indiana Jones would bump up a spot.
