Disneyland – Attractions I Want to Experience

by | Oct 12, 2017 | Disneyland | 0 comments

I’m in planning mode for Disneyland, so I’ve got to make sure I try these attractions:

Alice in Wonderland – this isn’t at Disney World, so I’ve got to see it!

Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters – I want to see the difference between this and Disney World’s Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin

Disneyland Monorail – I remember riding this as a young child, but not that well. I would like to compare it to the Disney World experience.

Disneyland Railroad – because I think trains are really cool!

The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln – it’s history, and I know my husband would like it.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant – only because I never rode it in Disneyland. This is a long story, but when you are one of five siblings and only one of you got to ride it (not me), you just have to finally ride on it. Yes, I know, I rode it at Disney World, but it’s just not the same.

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage – I was on the submarine ride before it was taken away in Disney World. I do have a bit of a claustrophobic problem, but I think I can do it, because it is cool to be in a submarine!

Indiana Jones Adventure – because they don’t have it at Disney World.

it’s a small world – to compare, but it appears it will not be open when we are there. Too bad.

Jungle Cruise – again, to compare, but I love this ride at Disney World, so it’s got to be good at Disneyland, too!

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh – for comparison sake.

Mark Twain Riverboat – I know this isn’t really an exciting ride, but I love being on a boat/ship.

Matterhorn Bobsleds – I’m not sure about this, but they don’t have it at Disney World, so I want to give it a try.

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride – because they don’t have this at Disney World, and I want to experience it.

Peter Pan’s Flight – to compare.

Pinocchio’s Daring Journey – they don’t have this at Disney World, either. It’s gotta be fun!

Pirates of the Caribbean – to compare.

Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin – I have to look into this more before I decide. I have to be careful with spinning.

Snow White’s Scary Adventures – because they don’t have it at Disney World anymore.

Space Mountain – to compare.

Star Tours – to compare.

Storybook Land Canal Boats – they don’t have this at Disney World.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – to compare.

Sailing Ship Columbia – I remember seeing this when I was a child. I thought it looked so fun compared to the Mark Twain Riverboat. Since I like being on a ship/boat, I want to ride this, too.

The Best Cruise Line

We are often asked which is the best cruise line. Well, it all depends on you. Ok, so you think that's a non-answer. But think about it, not everyone enjoys the same things you do. Some people like tons of active activities like swimming, water slides, basketball,...

COVID-19 “Vaccines” and Travel

To Cruise or Not to Cruise, That Is the Question

It seems that just when you think you know the rules, everything changes again. If you are like me, you want to get on a cruise ship. I prefer to not cruise in the summer, so I'm not planning to cruise anytime real soon. However, I sometimes wonder when I should...

Will You Be Travelling Soon?

Some of you may want to travel internationally, whether by flying or by cruise. More and more countries are requiring you to have a COVID-19 vaccine. Some won't let you in without a vaccine, but some will allow you in as long as you quarantine upon arrival. Each...

Passports

Do you need to renew your passport, or get your first one? Well, they are taking longer than usual. Wayne had to renew his as it was about to expire. We heard 10-12 weeks. Yes, that is a long time. I am happy to say, though, that his passport renewal took a little...

One of Our Disney Surprises

One year I wanted to surprise my husband and take him to Disney World. I told the children what I was planning and they were excited that just the two of us would have a trip for ourselves. Well, my story and our reveal is in this video. Enjoy....
