The 10-minute whimsical journey takes you through the Seven Seaways Waterway and features a cast of almost 300 traditionally dressed papier-mâché dolls from all over the world. This iconic ride will leave you singing "It's a Small World" in multiple languages by the journey's end.

Take on the Queen of Hearts' daunting maze as you venture into the White Rabbit's Hole and out the other side via Tulgey Wood and doors of various sizes in Alice's Curious Labyrinth. Once you've reached Sleeping Beauty's Castle, enjoy sweeping views of Fantasyland and Alice's Curious Labyrinth.

Inspired by Monument Valley in Utah, Big Thunder Mountain is an exhilarating, 1.5-mile-long, 4-minute rollercoaster-type ride that takes you to great heights with a maximum speed of 41 miles per hour.

  • Main Street U.S.A.

Travel back to the 19th Century and make your way down Main Street, U.S.A. in horse-drawn streetcars or hitch a ride onboard a vintage vehicle.

Don't let its smaller stature fool you - Walt Disney Studios Park is definitely worth a visit - especially if you've purchased a 2-day (or longer) pass. Located just steps away from Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park is home to 11 rides and attractions including the popular Ratatouille: A Recipe for Adventure and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Other rides not to be missed are Cars Quatre Roues Rallye: Vroooom! and Les Tapis Volants - Flying Carpets Over Agrabah: A Whole New World of Fun.

Because waiting times at Walt Disney Studios Park tend to be shorter than Disneyland Park, we recommend spending just half the day there.
