- Journey around the world showcase at Epcot where you can go Soarin around breathtaking vistas, design your own car on Test Track, try Mission Space, visit Arendale on Frozen ride, head to the kitchen to try the Remy’s Ratatoille Adventure, or join the Guardians of the Galax on the brand new Cosmic Rewind coaster.
- Immerse yourself in the world Disney has created at Hollywood Studios as you venture to Star Wars Land to try the popular Rise of the Resistance, become a toy to join in Toy Story Mania or Slinky Dog Coaster, scream on the thrilling Hollywood Tower of Terror, or join in with Mickey and the Gang in Mickey’s Runaway Railway ride.

Disneyland is Walt Disney’s original theme park which was fist opened in 1955 in Annaheim (just south of Los Angeles) California. This more manageable experience has 2 parks – Disneyland and California Adventure Park which are walking distance from each other. Here you will find Marvel Web Slingers, Star Wars Rise of the Resistance, Space Mountain, IncrediCoaster, Soarin, Pirates of the Carribean, classic rides like Mr Toad’s Wild Ride, Jungle Cruise, Indiana Jones Adventure, and the amazing Carsland featuring Radiator Racers. See our review below for what is very different between the two rides.
Disney Around the World
Disney has other parks in Paris, France, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo – but if you are reading you are probably more interested in visiting the locations that at least begin in the US so that is what I am going to focus on. But if you want to travel, the Haunted Mansion ride at Hong Kong – Mystic Manor – is really unique and fun. The Shanghai Disney’s Pirate of the Carribean blends technology for a truly immersive ride like we have never experienced before. And Disneyland Paris features the only Indiana Jones roller coaster which I loved riding again and again growing up.
