Yesterday, my friends and I were on a mission: to ride every ride at Disneyland and California Adventure. We woke up at the crack of dawn and made it to the park as soon the gates opened and strategically planned our day to hit all of our favorite Disney attractions. Here is a list of our top 5 favorite rides from yesterday:

5. The Little Mermaid- Ariel's Undersea Adventure
Ok, probably not what you were expecting, but I couldn't resist. The Little Mermaid is my all-time favorite Disney movie and this ride brings you through Ariel's story with impressive animatronics. Plus, I couldn't help singing along to all of the songs.

4. Mickey's Fun Wheel
I had never been on a ferris wheel quite like this one. Mickey's Wheel of Fun has carts that slide back and forth inside the spokes of the ferris wheel. It's definitely more thrilling than a typical ferris wheel.

3. Soarin'
Soarin' is a simulated hang glider ride with amazing views of California. It's really cool because there are even realistic smells!

2. Space Mountain
A Disney classic, Space Mountain is an indoor roller coaster that makes it feel like you're traveling through space. 

1. The Tower of Terror
As Ithaca College students it's only appropriate that our favorite ride was based off of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone. The Tower of Terror brings you into an episode of The Twilight Zone where lightening strikes The Hollywood Tower and everyone in the tower's elevator drops unexpectedly into the Twilight Zone.

In addition to the rides, we all loved the "World of Color Show" at night. The show uses fountains and lights to recreate scenes from all of our favorite Disney movies. It was so beautiful and we loved singing along to all of our favorite Disney songs!
