Adventureland is the first land to the left when you reach the ‘hub’. Highlights are:
Pirates of the Caribbean. This is based on the original Disneyland ride, and the famous films are based on it. It was renovated a few years ago to include Captain Jack Sparrow and you see him pop up through out the ride. It is technically a log flume kind of ride – you’re in little boats and there’s one little dip as you go along, but its not a thrills ride like you might class a log flume to be.
Dole Whips! Near the Enchanted Tiki Room is Aloha Isle, selling pineapple Dole whips and Dole whip floats – essentially soft whipped pineapple flavoured ice cream. Incredibly refreshing on a hot day.
The Jungle Cruise. Set sail on a boat with your Captain around the Jungle to see the animals. In Walt Disney’s original concept, the animals were going to be real. Sadly, that wasn’t to be with this ride and Walt never lived to see Animal Kingdom, which really brought his dreams to life. The ride is a fan favourite and gets extremely busy – but be warned your experience is entirely dependent on how good your skipper is, as they keep up a running commentary of cheesy jokes as you take a turn around the river.
Magic Carpets of Aladdin. A ‘Dumbo’ style ride- use the levers to lift up and down and tilt the magic carpet, as you fly.
