It’s very simple and a marvellous advert for how rides use to be at Disney taking you through this classic story. Simple and effective. Don’t expect too much.

Pinocchio’s Daring Journey is a dark ride located in the Fantasyland section of Disneyland. Although it seems very similar to nearby attractions like Toads Wild Ride and Snow White that were original to the park opening it was actually not put in until 1983. It...More

You can't expect this ride to be any different from the many in fantasyland. It may appear to be old due like the movie itself, but this ride was one of the newest additions; yet they make it so similar to some of the originals...More

I haven't went on this ride since I was a little kid so I decided to see how it holds up now that I'm an adult. Some of the imagery is pretty cool, though the lighting is pretty poor in certain areas and it can...More

Nice ride, good way to recall the movie. Would probably not be frightening to most small chidren. Not an attraction that I would need to do every visit since our group was made up of adults.

We enjoyed this. This was simple and fairly short, but fun. The visual effects are entertaining and the part of the ride where Monstro comes out was visually stunning.

Pinocchio's Daring Journey does an outstanding job of capturing the magic of the animated film version of Pinocchio. Although it is located among many of the original Disneyland rides, this is a newer ride (1983) and has some technological features not found in the original...More

Do your homework. This one of Walts original dark rides. You can feel the Magic, the little touches are amazing. You gotta catch the Guard whose eyes follow you in a creepy way when you go by. The Themeing at the entry is wonderful.
