Disneyland Rides Tips

Disneyland is many things to many people, but really it all comes down to the rides, right? No?

Well whatever your opinion, you'll want to read these 10 Tips before you go.

1.  On the Matterhorn, get in the bobsleds on the RIGHT track. A ride on that side is 19 seconds longer than the left.

2.  For a wilder ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, do the "Goat Trick".  Watch for a goat at the second hill.  If you stare directly at him as long as you can, you'll feel your stomach lurch.

9.  Which rides have the longest wait? On busy days, gather your patience for these four:
- Peter Pan: Up to an hour
- Flying Dumbo: Can be over an hour
- Space Mountain: Can be 90 minutes
- Indiana Jones: Can be 2 hours!

10. Wait until the end of the day to visit Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Snow White, and Pinocchio.  Their lines are typically shorter right before the park closes.
