5 Top Children's Entertainment Attractions at Disneyland

Disneyland celebrates its’ 60th anniversary this year. The theme park is known for clean, family-oriented entertainment since 1955. Anaheim, California is home to Disneyland and is part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Park tickets, annual passes, directions and information on places to stay in Disneyland are available online. The following five attractions are highly recommended for families with children.

Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride will be closing September 25, 2015. Magic Kingdom fans should not fret, as the ride will reopen in a few months, after some minor upgrades. The mermaids and Jack Sparrow will once again bring life to the movie-inspired attraction. Guests take a dark boat ride through pirate infested waters. Future guests should watch for the reopening announcement around the first of 2016.

Disney allows parents and older children to board Dumbo, the Flying Elephant, although toddlers are the primary target. The attraction is one of the original Disneyland rides. The band organ performs circus music as riders soar high in the air on large-eared blue flying elephants. Children are given the controls to allow Dumbo to fly low or soar high as desired.

The Mad Tea Party ride was introduced in 1955 when Disneyland first opened. Brightly colored teacups spinning on coordinating saucers is the scene for the March Hare’s unbirthday party. Families are invited to join in the chaotic fun at the Mad Tea Party. Children may turn the wheel in the middle of the teacup for a faster ride. Stand up slowly when the ride is over, because the attraction is known to leave a person’s head spinning.

It's a Small World is one of the favorite Disneyland attractions since 1964. In 2014, Disney celebrated the 50th anniversary of the attraction. The original purpose of the ride was to celebrate happy children, as a tribute to UNICEF. The ride debuted at the New York World’s Fair, in 1964 and was transported later to Disney Land. The “It's a Small World,” theme song is sung by children of all ages. Families board a boat for a fun 15-minute musical tour through seven continents. Children are introduced to the common bonds of friendship while experiencing diverse cultures.

Gadget's Go Coaster is a scaled down rollercoaster for the youngest members of the family. The mini rollercoaster is based on Gadget Hackwrench from the popular television series, “Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers.” The attraction opened in 1993 in Mickey’s Toontown. The coaster is built from acorns and parts that Gadget Hackwrench scavenged. Riders experience a fun surprise by some frogs near a small lake that squirt water.
