Walt Disney World and Disneyland both have original attractions that are still available to experience today. Some of these attractions are exclusive to these parks and cannot be found anywhere else. Here are some original Disney rides that are exclusive to one Disney Park.
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland
This Disneyland attraction is a fan favorite, and was an opening day attraction. This attraction previously had a clone at Walt Disney World until it was closed to make way for The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh. Since the closure of the Walt Disney World location, Disneyland is now the only Disney park where you can experience Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. This classic dark ride takes you through an English manor in an open-air buggy as you wreak havoc throughout the home and try to escape without consequence. This ride is based on the classic Disney film “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad” and is available to guests of all ages and heights.
Country Bear Jamboree at Walt Disney World
This animatronic musical jamboree was an idea that Walt Disney had himself for a ski resort attraction. After Walt’s death, his imagineers brought his vision to life at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Country Bear Jamboree was an opening day attraction that still entertains visitors today. This show is funny, charming, and one of the last attractions to have ever been developed by Walt Disney himself. It’s home in Walt Disney World is a must-see.
