  • What's the best Disneyland Water Ride?

    So tell what's your favorite Disneyland Water Ride (Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, It's a Small World, Mark Twain, Sailing Ship Columbia, Canoes, Island Rafts, Story Bookland Canal Boats, or Jungle Cruise), and why is it your favorite?

    I think I have two tied for my favorites, Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain. And I like them because they are themed well, you get wet, and good ride time.

    Ok... BIG shock to everyone...

    "it's a small world"! I love it dearly because it is so magical.

    But you left out the Matterhorn and Big Thunder Mountain and they have water too-- on the "splash" part of the track.

      Well, it might only be at the end, but maybe.

          I agree with the above but the JC is tops on my list. The live jungle, animatronics, design and atmosphere puts it ahead of the rest.

              Umm, hello, I think we're forgetting the best water ride of all time... Submarine Voyage. It may be closed, but even before AAs, this baby was an E ticket.

              Of the rides currently operating, PotC all the way. From having a restaurant inside the ride, to having brand new characters, to spawning the only quality film adaptation... Pretty cool.

                  Oooh, good question!
                  I'm tied/torn twixt Pirates and Splash. Both are excellent rides, both have wonderful themes and effects....
                  I think Pirates wins in the end, just because of Walt's involvement.

                        So thank you very little and send me postcards from hell"

                              My favorite water ride is splash mountain, and yes, I am proud of it and I stand tall Small World.

                                Gotta Say Pirates

                                It's my favorite because I really can't do things with super big drops, but a little thrill here and there never hurt anybody. It's got great scenery, a good layout, the best atmosphere, and a relatively smooth ride. The drops are just big enough to give you a small rush, but not enough to send your stomach into knots.

                                Plus, the catch phrases are the best!

                                    Pirates of the Caribbean - Just too much fun! I love the animatronics, and love the theme. Now if they would remove the changes they have made over the years.

                                    Storybook Canal Boat - <grins> Go late at night. 1) The que is short. 2) The CMs are pretty talkative, and ALL of them profess to loving the ride. 3) 75%+ of the CMs seem to be female...

                                    Canoes - A lot of fun...especially when you have a good group.

                                    Splash Mountain - I wish I knew MORE about the theming. I have never seen Song of the South, so it does not connect as well as many of the other rides in DL. All I have read/heard was an old follow along record / storybook of Brear rabbit and the tar baby.

                                    IaSM - I can only remember riding it with the Holiday Makover. I do not feel qualified to comment.

                                    JC - Too uneven of a ride to rate higher. The experience heavily depends upon the driver and too many of them cannot deliver the jokes well at all, and, sadly, a number of them do not seem to care. I am looking forward to riding it once the refurbishment finishes.

                                    MT, SSC - Nice place to rest and take in scenery.
