We Want This Disneyland Ride In Disney World

We were sitting around talking Disney, as we usually do here at AllEars, and the topic of the differences between Disneyland and Disney World parks came up. Then, we got into a debate about which one ride we would want to see make the 2,497.4 mile trip from Disneyland to Disney World.

First up we each submitted the ride each of us would move from Anaheim to Orlando, and it is a fun list!

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride

Who doesn’t love a wild ride with J. Thaddeus Toad? This ride is just pure fun. It reminded some of us of early days teaching our kids how to drive, and it reminded one of us of growing up in England reading the Wind in the Willows tales in school. Plus, some of us remember when Toad was an Orlando resident… before Toad made the sad trek from the current location of  the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction to the Haunted Mansion‘s pet cemetery.

Storybook Land Canal Boats

This is a fun escape for a while as you sail through Monstro the Whale’s mouth into a land of miniature sets of classic Disney films. Look for your favorite movie as the guide points out each set. This is a fun way to relive your favorite movies in the park in a relaxing manner.

Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin

Calling all kids of the ’80s! This one is on the list for you! Remember when this bunny was all over in his ground-breaking film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? This one is another wild ride that takes you back in time as you avoid the weasels and THE DIP!

Now, we move on to Disney California Adventure for the next three additions to our Disneyland to Walt Disney World wish list.

Radiator Springs Racers

Basically, we want ALL of Cars Land somewhere in Disney World. There’s nothing quite like walking into Radiator Springs in California Adventure. Then you get to race around Ornament Valley in a racer. You’ll drive by the same places Lightning McQueen and Sally drove by as their love bloomed, and then watch out — this is called Radiator Springs Racers for a reason! You’ll get to know what it’s like to race with a Piston Cup winner! This ride is awesome. This land is awesome. Especially if you visit when it is dressed up for Halloween or Christmas.

Boudin Bakery Tour

OK, not a ride, but the person who added this to the list insisted it was on the list of attractions so could be included for consideration. This is the home of a mini-tour of the San Francisco-based Boudin Bakery’s operations. Best of all, at the end of the tour you get to sample their famous sourdough. Next door you’ll be able to order sandwiches, bread bowl soups, and more at Pacific Wharf Cafe. Best of all, they sell Mickey-shaped loaves of bread here, and at Halloween you can get a Mickey vampire-shaped loaf!

Silly Symphony Swings

This is another one for the fans of nostalgia. Just a good old fashioned spinning swing ride. You really do soar on this ride unlike another ride where you just think you’re Soarin’… see what we did there? Take a few minutes to sit in the swing, let your hair blow in the air, and watch the world go by as you fly through the air on this ode to Walt’s 1935 Mickey Mouse cartoon “The Band Concert”.

Pixar Pal-A-Round

Whether you call this the Sun Wheel, Mickey’s Fun Wheel, or the Pixar Pal-A-Round, it is hard to miss this attraction.

The big question is: sliding or fixed gondolas? No matter which style of gondola you choose (this writer loves and recommends sliding — but not if you are prone to motion sickness) you are in for a fun ride and unique views of Disneyland. Plus how can you resist a ride with a giant Mickey Mouse on it?

The Verdict

Well, we had to choose just one ride for this article. After lots of debate, we came to the agreement that the one ride we want in Disney World from Disneyland is… Drum roll, please…

 

Mr. Toad at Disneyland

We want Mr. Toad to come back to Disney World. Please, Disney — hear our pleas and bring Mr. Toad and his Wild Ride back to Florida!

  1. For me it would be the long lost Adventure Through Inner Space ride that I would put at Epcot. I’m a huge fan of the old omnimover rides. Also The Matterhorn is a great ride that I’ve always wished we had, but then again, I like the parks being different and giving me a reason to visit them all. A major disappointment for me being a West coast kid and having gone to DL first was finding that the MK felt like a thrown together version of DL without an ounce of the charm. They made it bigger for the masses but it has never outgrown the feeling of a big concrete slab amusement park. DL has grown into it’s surroundings with huge trees and a more storybook feel. I will always prefer the park that Walt walked.

  2. The ferris wheel and the swing i can ride anywhere during summer so no need. MR Toad would be nice to have back.

    1. I totally agree. Those types of rides are what make California Adventure a really lame, completely unDisneylike park IMO. It’s my least favorite of the parks I’ve visited. It feels like they got in over their heads with a new park and zero ideas for a theme so they went with California….in California.

  3. I can’t believe nobody picked the submarine ride!! I went to Disneyland for the first time since I was 5 a few months ago and loved going on the non-World rides with the submarine and Mr Toad being my favorites!! I had no idea Mr Toad actually went into the fires of Hell. Crazy!
