    Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    What is your favorite ride at night at DCA or Disneyland and why do you like it so much?

    I like the way California Screamin' at DCA looks at night from the pictures.
    It looks really glitzy

    Cool Re: Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    Adventureland rides. They are all better at night. Darkness adds to the excitement, mysteriousness, and adventure of the jungle.

    Wink Re: Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    Favorite night-time ride in Disneyland for me is Big Thunder. The way the attraction is lighted, the breeze whipping around as you make the turns and the view of the park lit up from the top of the drop is the best. It's also usually short wait to get on after dark which make for easier back-to-back rides.

    In DCA, believe it or not, it's Tower of Terror. Sceamin' is great, but everything's a blur -- especially at night. The Sun Whel -- sorry, Fun Wheel -- is like being in lockdown at night; peering out through chicken wire is not that aweinspiring. And even though you only get a couple of quick glimpses out of Tower, the night-time experience still has a distinctive vibe -- whether riding it or just looking at it.

    Jungle Cruise...nuff said!

    then Big Thunder.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    The monorail is pretty cool at night, especially if you're sitting up front.

    Re: Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    Big Thunder at night is great, it seems faster, and it is lit fantastically...the night adds a lot to it, atmosphere wise. The same applies for me to The Matterhorn. Personally, I love Haunted Mansion at night most...but that's just me
    when the spooks have a midnight jamboree....

    Big Thunder and Matterhorn are the best night rides because it makes them seem as if they were completely different rides.

    I hope you mean that Haunted Mansion looks cooler at night 'cuz when I'm inside the attraction, I can't tell if it's day or night. But, hey, maybe it's just me.

    Re: Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    At Disneyland: Big Thunder Mountain.

    The train seems to go faster, it is well
    lighted throughtout the mountain and
    the night sky really adds to the atmosphere.
    Especially riding while the fireworks are exploding
    into the sky.

    At California Adventure: California Screamin'.

    All the attractions that light up really
    make the attraction really colorful.

    Oooh, I like Tower of Terror.
    Because when the doors open at the top, you can see the view of the park all lit up and it's so pretty.

    Re: Favorite Disneyland / DCA Night Time Ride

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    California Screamin'
    Matterhorn
    Jungle Cruise
    Monorail
    even the Railroad is really relaxing at night

    I've not tried the following at night but would love to - Mark Twain, Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, Grizzly River Run

    Generally speaking, DL and DCA are very beautiful at night!
