What fun awaits you at Disneyland's Adventureland?Adventureland is Disneyland's themed area focusing on the "wild and exotic" places of the world.
It's here that you'll be able to buy stuffed snakes and Safari Mickey Mouse stuffed animals in the shops. Or, take a cruise into the depths of the jungle. Or, sing along with animatronic parrots and macaws in the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction. Or join Tarzan and his friends in a jungle tree house. Or...embark on one of the most popular journeys in all of Disneyland Park---a ride into the Temple of the Forbidden Eye...with that intrepid adventurer, Indiana Jones himself, helping you and your party out of the terrible circumstances in which you'll find yourself while inside!
On this page, we'll talk about all these rides and attractions you'll enjoy as you tour Adventureland in Disneyland California...and more!
Photo note: Do you recognize this man on your right? It's a picture of Tarzan, of course! And, you'll be seeing him if you explore the Tarzan Treehouse attraction in Adventureland.
Adventureland Attractions: The Indiana Jones RideWhat's the hottest ride in Adventureland at Disneyland California? It's a rugged jeep ride called the "Indiana Jones Adventure---Temple of the Forbidden Eye!"
On the Indiana Jones ride, you'll enter a dark, subterranean world where mysterious writing decorates temple walls, serpents and spiders hold free rein, and firey eruptions pierce the surrounding gloom. Anything goes for an intrepid adventurer such as yourself, except for ONE forbidden rule---DON'T look into the eyes of the goddess Mara, or the whole expedition will suffer ruin!
Will you make it out alive? Who knows? Maybe...but, maybe not!
The Fast Pass option is available for the Indiana Jones attraction. In addition, this ride sometimes allows single riders quicker admission. Ask the attendant in front of the Indiana Jones ride if the "single rider option" is in effect on the day that you visit. (Yes, I have taken advantage of the single rider option myself, so I can verify that it's offered at times...even if no signs are posted.)
Adventureland Attractions: Tarzan's TreehouseJoin Tarzan in his treetop home! In Adventureland at Disneyland California, you can climb into the "upper canopy" of jungle life. You'll walk on a swinging, bouncing bridge made of boards and rope; view dioramas of Tarzan, Jane and their friends; and even, on occasion, meet a strolling character from the Tarzan movie who has ascended with you into the heights.
After enjoying the view from Tarzan's cleverly constructed tree-top home, you'll descend to the explorer's "base camp" built by Jane's father.
Here, you'll enjoy viewing---and playing with---the whimsical contraptions devised by this jolly scientist. On occasion, you'll even meet a live critter carried by a Disney animal handler.
Adventureland Attractions: The Jungle Cruise adventureJourney into the watery world under the jungle's canopy of vines and dense trees! (And, since these plants have grown freely for the past 50 years, Disneyland's jungle is certainly one feature in the park that's not "just make believe!")
The trees truly are dense, and sunlight barely filters through the tangle of branches overhead. It's not hard at all to imagine that you're in some far-away clime, taking on the man-eating species of the wild.
Yet, the guides in Adventureland at Disneyland California gave up leading this tour as if it were realistic long ago. Nowadays, guests are less willing than they were 50 years ago to suspend their disbelief and pretend that they're truly in a jungle. So these days,the guides play along, and set a humorous tone to the trip.
There is no minimum height requirement to board the Jungle Cruise attraction. However, kids should ride with a responsible adult. Guests in wheelchairs and ECV's should note that boarding the Jungle Cruise ride involves a transfer with steps. ECV's should enter via the ride's exit.
Adventureland Attractions: Enchanted Tiki RoomThe Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland at Disneyland California is a venerable "old favorite" with return guests.
Inside this exotic building, you'll see a musical show conducted by....birds!
A quartet of animatronic avians lead you through a merry revue of island tunes. Plus, the show includes some HIDDEN SURPRISES along the way. I can't mention what these surprises are, in case you haven't seen the performance yet....but, the effects are very clever!
The crowd awaits the next showing of the performance in an attractive courtyard, which is decorated island-style. A short pre-show takes place in the courtyard, plus a refreshment cart sits adjacent to the waiting area.
Adventureland at Disneyland California: Meeting costumed Disney charactersFinding costumed Disney characters is a must-do experience for some Disneyland guests, and if that describes YOU, then Adventureland at Disneyland California won't disappoint.
You'll HAVE to visit Adventureland, in fact, to complete your autograph or photo collections. Some of the Disney characters appear ONLY in Adventureland (except, of course, for their appearances in Disneyland parades.)
Shopping in Adventureland at Disneyland CaliforniaUnique shopping opportunities can be found in Adventureland at Disneyland California. The merchandise is more exotic and "adventure oriented" in this section of the park than at the stores in other "lands."
Where else in Disneyland Anaheim can you buy (fake) snakes and spiders for yor young son's collection? Only in Adventureland!
Of more interest to the adults is the selection of safari and Hawaiian-style clothing for sale in the Bazaars here.
Are you looking for Quiksilver, Roxy, Hurley and other surf brands of clothing? Yes, you can buy surf styles at Disneyland---but the Adventureland stores are the only place in the park that you can!
Unexpected problems can occur on any vacation, but the better you ANTICIPATE, the less problems you'll have. So---plan your trip ahead of time! (Use this site to help!)
