The thrilling Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure Park brings guests the first ride-through attraction in the world featuring characters from Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles.” Anchoring Pixar Pier, the Incredicoaster takes guests on a super adventure with the Parr family to capture the elusive baby Jack-Jack. Exciting character figures, special effects, lighting, new music and distinctively colored vehicles make the thrills on this coaster even more incredible. (Joshua Sudock/Disneyland Resort)

Disneyland is the place where dreams come true and rides are filled with adventure and thrills for everyone in your group to enjoy.

Disneyland opened its doors to the very first guests on July 17, 1955, and has been operating ever since. Walt Disney said of the park, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” And there’s been a whole lot of imagination since Walt built the park. With classic attractions getting updated and refurbished to completely new lands like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, there is a lot to explore at Disneyland Resort.

Whether you’re an old pro or going to Disneyland Resort for the very first time, there are some extra magical attractions you should definitely try to ride while you’re there. The best way to ensure you get each of these 15 attractions done is to get a free FastPass reservation once you’re in the park, or buy Disney’s MaxPass to make FastPass reservations on your phone for either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. Though, you should know that not all of the attractions on our list use FastPass or MaxPass, but we’ll let you know which ones do!

Our list is made up of some classic and some new attractions, including the new Star Wars themed attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run! Why the mix of old and new? Well, that’s what Disneyland is all about after all: mixing modern technology and new ideas with a celebration of the past and classic ideas to create something truly special.
