    Wink What is Your Favorite Ride in the Park?

    Happy Friday, MiceChat!
    Disneyland has rides that cater to everyone, young or the young-at-heart. There are so many to choose from it's hard to name just one. But, if you had to name one, which would be your most favorite ride for each park?

    For me, it would be Indiana Jones in Disneyland and Racers
    in California Adventure. I'm more into the 'thrill, but not too thrilling' rides. (Too chicken to even attempt California Screaming! )

    Space Mountain. Forever and always.
    I am bad and that is good, I will never be good and that's not bad, there's no one I'd rather be than me!

    It used to be a toss-up between The Haunted Mansion and Pirates, but with the addition of the Captain Jack Sparrows, it's Haunted Mansion these days.

    DCA would be The Muppets. I've always liked the Muppets, and even though I see it several times when I visit, it never grows old.

    Disneyland... it's a toss up between Big Thunder and Splash Mountain. I first went on BTMRR when I was two, so that's why I've always loved it. As for Splash, it's so immersive and fun. I guess if I had to choose one... it would have to be Big Thunder.

    For California Adventure... once again stuck between two rides. Grizzly River and Soarin. Grizzly has so many fond memories (like riding it multiple times mid winter) and Soarin is always a classic. Hmmm... I'd have to say Soarin Over California, though.

    Re: What is Your Favorite Ride in the Park?

    In Disneyland, my personal favorite is Space Mountain. Like I said in my latest trip report, while it feels blasphemous not to choose something as detail rich or masterfully artistic as Pirates of the Caribbean (even with the Deppification) or Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain is simply three minutes or unbridled joy and I love it with all my heart.

    In DCA, Tower of Terror. While there are many attractions in Disneyland proper that would place before this on my list of overall resort favorites (POTC and HM obviously being two), this is definitely the highlight of DCA and is actually pretty high on my list of resort-wide favorites—it's the only attraction I really miss when I'm solely visiting DLP. Fantastic atmosphere, mood, and environment. The drop sensations of the actual ride are fun too, but it's the pre-show (and how it compliments the ride experience) that sets this one apart. The facade of Radiator Springs Racers is amazing but the ride itself does little for me.

    Oooh! Some of you guys are brave souls! I tried riding Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy once by myself (my family chickened out at the last minute) and let me say, I will never be doing that again! I had my eyes closed the whole time thinking, "Let me off this thing! LET ME OFF!!" LOL

    Definitely Indy, the loading area in particular it's hard to believe you're in the middle of a well-populated city and not deep underground in an ancient temple.

    Re: What is Your Favorite Ride in the Park?

    I have a hard time picking an absolute favorite, but I do have a list of what I love most.

    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Haunted Mansion
    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
    Splash Mountain


    As far as DCA goes, I really love Mike and Sully to the Rescue. Monsters Inc, is one of my favorite Pixar movies and the ride almost never has a wait time.
    Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

    Haunted Mansion. With its creative design and its intricate details, Haunted Mansion is simply amazing.

    While HM is in its Holiday overlay, my next favorite ride in the park is Space Mountain.

    DL would be Big Thunder Mountain or Ghost Galaxy Space Mountain at the right time of year. DCA is always Tower of Terror.
