Matterhorn

I think it is a very amazing, fun, and wild ride!!

It's a small world

I went to Disneyland at 4 yrs old with my parents and siblings. The only thing I remember is the Dumbo ride and the "it's a small world song." My mother made us go on it again and again. I do NOT plan on going on this ride when I take my children as it still gives me nightmares. [Arthur Levine says: Thanks for sharing Megan, but it doesn't sound like iasw is your pick for best DL ride!]

Indiana Jones

Indiana is my favorite. This last time, I went with my Mom and no kids. We did a lot of stuff we don't normally do, including the canoes. It's hard work, but everyone should do it once! I'm still holding out for a 'Lost' ride.

Indiana Jones

I love this one and was so glad to see it on your list. I go to Disney World all the time so when I make it to the other coast, I always ride the attractions that are different in Disneyland. For that reason, Matterhorn is a close second for me!

Space Mountain all the Way

With the new trains, Space Mountain is the ride I most look forward to at Disneyland. Sorry, my second pick is for Pirates of the Caribbean over anything at Disney's California Adventure.
