Disney California Adventure Ride List – Full Ride Guide For The DCA Park

Dinsey California Adventure is the Sister park to Disneyland Park, California. The Park is a more grown-up park with bigger rides, scarier themes and far less “Magic” and Fairytale. While there are far fewer attractions at DCA the Rides tend to be bigger, better and provide far more thrills. Our Disney California, Adventure Ride List features EVERY ride available in the park, big or small, tame or thrilling. It is a Full Ride Guide for every DCA Park ride.

Families with younger children will find far less to do in the Disney California Adventure. But mixed age groups will definitely appreciate the more high octane rides and thrills available in the park. While Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railway are about as White Knuckle as it gets over in Disneyland, in DCA these would hardly break the surface. But it is not all Thrill rides and Screams, there are fun family rides, Character meets, great places to eat and things to see and do.

Using Our Disney California Adventure Ride Guide

We have Separated Rides into the different land they occupy in the park. With the Bigger headline attractions of each land at the top. Most Rides have their own detailed page, containing all relevant information and our opinion on the ride and what to expect. The Smaller family rides, those that are little more than spinners may not have a full page all to themselves.

This Guide covers Every Ride in the Park, and while there are not that many rides, the long queue times can mean it is impossible to get through every ride on offer. So we have put together a Disney California Adventure Must Ride List, these are the Top 10 Rides and Attractions in the DCA that you really cannot miss. We also have a compilation list of the best 10 rides in Both Park for those on Park Hopper Tickets.

Pixar Pier

Pixar Pier

Themed around an old Victorian Era Midway Promenade with a Pixar twist the Pier is a great place to spend some time. With some of the best rides in the park and the Iconic Disneyland Imagery of the Big Wheel and Looping Incredicoaster, it is hard to Miss the Pier. If the Big rides are not your thing then there is still plenty to do with Pixar Character meets and Pixar Themed Midway Games and snack stands It really is the heart of the California Adventure.
