  • [Fun] Resort Ride Rankings

    With many days of nothing to do during quarantine, I asked my family (wife, son 15, daughter 12, and I) to rank their top 10 Disneyland Resort rides to see how we, as a family, rank the rides. I found it very interesting that all 4 of us had different #1 rides and that only 4 rides were in all of our top 10's. One note is our last visit was October 2019 prior to the opening of Rise of the Resistance. I compiled the scores and here's what we, as a family, came up with:

    1. Radiator Springs Racers
    2. Space Mountain
    3. Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT!
    4. Indiana Jones Adventure
    5. Splash Mountain
    6. Pirates of the Caribbean
    7. Incredicoaster
    8. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    9. Toy Story Midway Mania
    10. Soarin'

    So what's your top 10?

    Man, just 10. Tough to have to rate so many that are pretty on par with each other to me, but here goes...

    1. Pirates of the Caribbean
    2. Haunted Mansion
    3. Rise of the Resistance (probably the best ride at DL, but POTC and HM are my sentimental favorites and can never be topped)
    4. Radiator Springs Racers
    5. Indiana Jones Adventure
    6. Big Thunder Mountain RR
    7. Star Tours
    8. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run
    9. Matterhorn Bobsleds
    10. Alice in Wonderland

                My rankings are pretty close to yours. I would remove #8 of yours and replace with the train.
                "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

                    It's tough to pick a top 10 because I feel like a lot of my favorite rides are tied as far as how much I enjoy them.
                    I have never been to DCA, and ROTR wasn't open yet during my most recent visit, so I can't include any of those.
                    1. Space Mountain
                    2. The Haunted Mansion
                    3. Pirates of the Caribbean
                    4. Matterhorn Bobsleds
                    5. Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
                    6. Star Tours
                    7. Indiana Jones Adventure
                    8. Splash Mountain
                    9. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
                    10. Disneyland Railroad
                    Honorable Mention: The car ride on the way there, nothing beats the excitement of knowing I'm on the way to the Happiest Place on Earth, especially once I start seeing the billboards on the freeway.

                    Don't know why I love Mr. Toad so much but it's been a family favorite as long as I can remember and I have to ride it ever time I go. Other than that I think I have a pretty typical list with all the mountains.

                      3.Disneyland Railroad
                      4.Pirates of the Caribbean
                      5.Jungle Cruise
                      6.Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
                      7.Soarin Over California
                      8.Star Tours
                      9.Snow Whites Scary Adventures
                      10.Alice in Wonderland

                      Honorable mentions to the rest of the Fantasyland dark rides. I love Roger Rabbit too, but I tend to skip Toontown on crowded days so it's not a significant part of a Disneyland trip as Fantasyland is. The Matterhorn goes in the top 10 if they've fixed the lack of padding issue since I last rode it.

                          Ah! This is so hard! Just know that the Tiki Room is #1 in my heart, but since it's not a ride, Jose is relegated to an honorable mention.

                          1)Pirates of the Caribbean
                          2) Haunted Mansion
                          3) Jungle Cruise
                          4) Temple of the Forbidden Eye (Indie)
                          5) Matterhorn
                          6)Small World
                          7) Midway Mania
                          8) Space Mountain
                          9) Soarin'
                          10) Mission Breakout

                          The Chew Chew Train would have been #1... RIP.

                              Yeah, I’d say my top 3 are pretty solid. After that, what follows changes year to year on my mood or any recent plussing. The very short list of attractions I normally don’t ride is an easier one for me to come up with.
