List of Disney Theme Park Attractions

Map of Florida

Having a comprehensive list of Disney theme park attractions can help you experience the best of what Disney has to offer its guests. Especially if you are on limited time or want to experience a certain type of magical adventure while on your vacation, the theme parks located within the United States give you a great chance to escape the ordinary existence of day to day life - stealing you away to your wildest dreams.

The Benefits of a List

There are lists of theme park attractions available online and in various tour books. One may be wondering why it is even important to have such a list - isn't it more enjoyable to just wander through an amusement park and see what you see along the way?

Those who haven't been to Disneyland or Disney World may not know that these parks are far from your typical carnival or amusement destination. Disney parks are themed, and often massive. Disney World itself includes four parks as well as two water parks, and also has a large shopping and eating area that also includes special ticketed attractions. It can be overwhelming to simply show up at a Disney park unprepared.

A list of Disney theme park attractions can also help family members agree upon how to spend the day, while allowing each person the chance to pick out something they would like to do. This way, everyone gets a voice and a chance to experience Disney the way they desire.

Where to Find Lists

A list of Disney theme park attractions can be found through various websites, including Disney's official website. You can also find a list in a theme park map when you arrive at the gate of one of the parks. These colorful maps are especially handy as they will be the most accurate and relevant for the time in which you are visiting. Finally, unofficial Disney websites, such as Laughingplace.com and Mouseplanet.com often have extremely accurate information on all attractions new and old.

You can also print out the below list of attractions for both Disneyland and Disney World when you want to make sure to hit all of the "must sees" at a park.
