For the most part, both Disneyland and Walt Disney World share a lot of attractions. They have their versions of Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Galaxy’s Edge and other classic attractions. They can be a bit distinct and in different spots, but it’s a comfort for guests to know they can enjoy the same ride on either coast.
Yet it can’t be denied that Disneyland has a few attractions that Walt Disney World guests are envious of. Some are variations of long-gone WDW gems, while others are simply exclusive to Disneyland. It’s amazing how Florida has yet to find a way to replicate some of them, but they do make Disneyland more special for guests. These are ten attractions WDW fans would love to see taken from Disneyland and why California can have an edge over the Florida parks.
10. Spider-Man Web Slingers
The obvious reason why this new California Adventure attraction can’t be in WDW is due to rights issues, which is a shame as it would be a huge winner in Florida. It’s like Toy Story Mania, only instead of pulling a string to fire objects, guests make “web-slinging” motions with their hands to help Spider-Man (Tom Holland) stop nanobots from overrunning a base. The screen effects are perfect, and the 3-D film puts you in the midst of the action. If Disney could ever settle the rights issues with Universal, putting this attraction in WDW would be a web of success.
9. Storybook Land Canal Boats
Sometimes, the favorite attraction for a family isn't a roller coaster but a quieter fun ride. In that regard, the Storybook Canal Boats are a huge winner. Kids love the boats traveling through the giant Whale Monstro and into a river that showcases miniature versions of homes from Disney movies. It’s changed them over the years, adding in places from Frozen, among others, with beautiful detail. A WDW version could add more elaborate spots, as this quiet boat ride can still be a charmer amid the busier attractions of Fantasyland.
