I created this article after a bit of discussion at Talk:Disneyland. It was originally going to be "List of Disneyland attractions", but I thought it would be more helpful to split it into two (this article and the forthcoming List of past Disneyland attractions). One thing I'd like to mention to potential editors is that the names of all the attractions in this article are taken from Disneyland maps and the Disneyland website. The reason why certain attractions have quotation marks, certain ones start with "The" while no others do, and why "it's a small world" has quotation marks and is all lowercase, is because those are the official Disney spellings as found in the maps and on the website. I have tried my best to give accurate descriptions of all the attractions, but there are some (such as the Winnie the Pooh ride) that I am just not familiar with, so if you are, or if you think any of these descriptions are inaccurate, please feel free to edit them. And, of course, this list should be kept up-to-date; if any new attractions come in they should be on here, and if the part gets rid of any attractions they should go into List of past Disneyland attractions. The order of the "lands" in this article is for easier compatibility with the past attractions article. Your friend Richie, end of letter. -Branddobbe, 3:25 PM PST, Nov 22 2003.

Disneyland vs Dland Park nearing edit wars[edit]

Hey, folks, refer to this page from the Disney corp itself, where it uses Disneyland Resort to refer to the whole shebang made up of "Disney's California Adventure park" and "Disneyland park", among other things. In other words, they know that since they've got 2 things--a resort and a park--named "Disneyland", even they know that referring simply to "Disneyland" could be confusing. However, "park" is not capitalized. I have edited the first paragraph to be clear about all of this. I hope it meets everyone's satisfaction. Elf | Talk 04:01, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Actually, in at least two places on this page, the 'P' in "Disneyland Park" is capitalized. - Brian Kendig 11:01, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)
That's only in places where it's in a title--as in "Disneyland Park at a Glance" and the "Disneyland Park" logo thing, where lowercase would look really odd. Where it occurs in text, park is lowercase. See, I have an answer for everything. ;-) Elf | Talk 16:21, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Very good point. Before I read it I send a request to Disney (via the 'Contact Us' form on their web site) asking what the proper ways are to refer to the park, and when/if I get an answer from them I'll make sure Wikipedia reflects it, but meanwhile I think you've got a good rule-of-thumb. - Brian Kendig 18:21, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. (By the way, I don't think it was really threatening to turn into an edit war.) -Branddobbe 07:26, Aug 10, 2004 (UTC)
Oh, you're right, there was no personal namecalling and invectives. ;-) Actually if I had thought it was getting to that flash point, I usually wouldn't have just popped in and edited the page. The official word from Disney would be a great thing, if indeed they deign to respond. Thanks! Elf | Talk 18:14, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride[edit]

Hasn't "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" been replaced with Pooh? Or is that only at Disneyworld? Also, the page contains a "spoiler" warning without any actual spoilers. - Nunh-huh

I haven't been to DW, but at DL, Toad & Pooh are in different parts of the park. Mr. Toad is still a popular ride. I wouldn't object to spoiler note being removed. Elf | Talk 00:11, 28 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Good to know. It's a favorite ride of those who visited as children...and surprisingly scary at that age. The closing in WDW was a scandal... - Nunh-huh 00:14, 28 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Monorail[edit]

The monorail used to stop at the Disneyland hotel, but as the article now correctly states, no longer. (It's also a crime that it does not stop in California Adventure - Walt would doubtless turn over in his grave, except that he's probably melted from doing that by now ...). —Morven 08:54, Aug 30, 2004 (UTC)

Ooops! My bad! It doesn't seem that long ago when I boarded the monorail at the ugly old Disneyland Hotel station. Upon a little research, I found that the Downtown Disney station is in the same place as the old Disneyland Hotel station. They merely demolished some of the shops and places near it like the Monorail Cafe and Neon Cactus lounge. It's the same distance to the hotel, but instead of stepping out of the Monorail for a quiet walk back to your hotel room, you have to walk through more crowds. Progress, eh? (and I want the PeopleMovers back!) Rabit 02:38, 2004 Aug 31 (UTC)
We were talking about this at dinner tonight, how the station really was in the same place but it *seemed* farther to the hotel rooms, and bemoaning the fact that Walt wasn't immortal, and missing the Monorail Cafe (my sister's paper napkins are served from a napkin holder just like the ones at MC, which they started selling when so many people complained about it closing that they discovered they could make $ selling MC memorabilia...). Elf | Talk 05:34, 31 Aug 2004 (UTC)
I remember when part of the huge Disneyland sign that greeted visitors for years as they first drove into the park showed up on eBay, and the bids were up into the five digits as I remember. Ah well, at least it's better that the stuff ends up in the hands of people who'll care for them rather than rust away in storage. Rabit 06:22, 2004 Aug 31 (UTC)
What got me about that sign, when I first saw it (mid 90s) was how ... faded and tatty they'd let it get. As if they were deliberately letting it go to seed because they wanted to replace it anyway. —Morven 07:46, Aug 31, 2004 (UTC)

Mr. Lincoln[edit]

Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is closed now, but what about The Walt Disney Story? Is that still open? -Branddobbe 20:58, Feb 26, 2005 (UTC)

Standardization[edit]

Should we italicize the names of the rides/attractions? I don't think the Wikipedia style guide says anything about this one way or another. -Branddobbe 19:12, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

I don't think it's needed. The main entries here are already bold, which is plenty. The names within sentences are all capitalized (except it's a small world ;-) ) and I think that's plenty. Italics are harder to read and, with so many attraction names used in the various disneyland articles, it could start looking cluttered without adding any new information. Just curious why you were thinking about this, though, in case I've missed something obvious. Elf | Talk 20:22, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
I was looking through some articles on Disneyland rides, and while most weren't italicized, some were, and I was just wondering if there was some sort of policy on that. -Branddobbe 20:30, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
Hmmm, not that I know of. Let's make one! :-) I vote for using bold if needed rather than italic. But then, I haven't looked at lots of the other Disney or other types of amusement park articles to conduct a poll as to what's really out there. I'm guessing that'll be what someone oughta do to form a recommended policy statement. Elf | Talk 20:37, 26 September 2005 (UTC)


Tarzan's Treehouse[edit]

There doesn't seem to be a seaprate article for this attaction yet; in addition to the photo I just put on this page, the following are also available:

Star Tours[edit]

Currently the Star Tours description states:

The riders are "supposed to" be taking a trip on a space cruiser to the 
forest moon of Endor, but the robotic pilot (voiced by Paul Reubens) 
manages to mess things up and get the ship into all sorts of trouble, 
including icy comets and battles at the Death Star, before safely 
making it to the moon, where the passengers disembark.

I believe this is incorrect where it states that disembarkment occurs at the Endor moon. Rex passes the moon and that's when the comets happen. Disembarkment happens after returning to the Star Tours' base. If memory serves C3PO states, "We hope you have enjoyed your visit to the Endor moon". I will correct that in the article.

Star Tours is in MGM not the Tomorrowland (in DisneyWorld that is. I am unsure where it is in Disneyland.) User:68.83.177.190|68.83.177.190]] 22:41, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Height Discrepancy[edit]

The change to 1/100 scale in reference to the Matterhorn Bobsleds is correct. The ride is 147 feet tall and the mountain 14,693.

Club 33: an attraction?[edit]

I'd like to know what others think about the inclusion of Club 33 in this list. An anonymous editor has recently added it here. I believe it shouldn't be included here, but I'm certainly willing to entertain logical counterarguments. My reasoning is that as a restaurant (and especially as a private club), Club 33 doesn't fit Disney's definition of an "attraction" ("rides, shows, and exhibits," according to the lead), and so it doesn't belong in a "list of Disneyland attractions". Disneyland's own literature doesn't appear to categorize Club 33 as an attraction. [1] Our list currently doesn't include any other restaurants or park features inaccessible to the general public; why make an exception for this one? Anyway, that's my thinking. Would anybody like to add an argument either way? AtticusX (talk) 01:51, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

That seems reasonable. Maybe the link could be shifted to the see also section rather than removed entirely? Themeparkgc  Talk  01:35, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
