Top 5 Summer Rides

Summer is just around the corner, and as usual, Disneyland will be packed like a can of sardines. But which rides should you go on, and which should you avoid? Fear not, for this is a breakdown of the top 5 rides that are perfect for your summer Disneyland excursions.

5. Splash Mountain



Don't expect short wait-times. This ride is almost always a hassle. But even on the most brutal summer days, a Fastpass will ensure that you're on the ride in 10 minutes tops. Should you choose to wait out the full hour or two, most of the line is indoors or in shade anyway. Once you're through the barn door, Splash Mountain is just a few cool steps away. The ride itself is a bit of a tease, as you circle around the big drop, and go up and down a few smaller ones. But once you make that final splash, you'll be drenched.

Summer tip: Wear sandals or flip-flops on this ride. Wet socks are inevitable.


4. Ariel's Undersea Adventure



A short wait time, cool air and a long, sit-down show ride. These are qualities that make a great and relaxing experience, and an easy way to escape from the blazing Southern California sun. It's a lot like The Haunted Mansion, and while it's not as iconic or creative, it is a much shorter queue and entirely indoors. So if you're trying to find something to do inside, look no further than DCA's Little Mermaid ride. It's a great way to entertain the kids and not force them to wait in the sun.

3. Grizzly River Run



The line for this scenic summer favorite is always a mile long, but for those who like to get wet on water rides, you will get soaked. This attraction also offers Fastpasses, which are quick and accessible, and a single-rider line for those whose family or friends won't brave the rapids with them. The long lines are made up for with plenty of shade and  music, to make the waiting bearable. It's a fun twisting and turning experience that will be sure to cool you off from the summer heat.

2. Pirates of the Caribbean



This ride is just an all-around classic, and is perfect for summer. Why? It's inside and away from the sun, and waiting in line is never trouble. The classic animatronics and pirate songs never get old, and the immersive experience really feels like you are being transported back to the times of Captain Jack Sparrow. It's a ride that has stood the test of time, and many countless summers.

1. Toy Story Midway Mania


Toy Story Midway Mania is the ideal way to spend an hour out of your summer day at California Adventure. You wait for 45 minutes to an hour inside and out, and it's such a relief when the ride begins. The wait time might seem like a lot, but this is one of the rides worth waiting for. Rather than simply watching things happen like in most rides, you're participating in a shooting contest for points. Hit various targets to earn a high score, and keep coming back for practice. It's a great way to spend a care-free afternoon with a guarantee that no two ride-throughs will be exactly the same.

  1. I think Toy Story Midway Mania may have been replaced by a ride that is Buzz Lightyear and space themed, but u still get 2 shoot targets. When I went 2 Disneyland, I went on the Buzz Lightyear ride (I can't exactly remember what the ride was called), and I was with my uncle in the car thingy, and he got, like, 90,000 points!!!!!!!! (I think.) ;)
