Tomorrowland

Main article: Tomorrowland
Astro Orbitor (opened 1966) 
Similar to the Rocket Jets of previous years, this is a ride in which the guests board a small personal "spaceship", which then flies around in a circle in the air, going up and down around a sort of high-tech maypole.
Autopia (opened 1955) 
Guests drive small cars around a guided track, retaining relative freedom but not the ability to drive off the course (this was a lesson the Disneyland officials learned the hard way). The current version is a consolidation of the two former Autopias (one was in Fantasyland and one in Tomorrowland). This attraction has been updated several times since 1955, most recently on June 29, 2000.
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (opened 2005) 
Guests ride in spaceship-like cars armed with infrared laser guns. Guests must shoot at targets and accumulate points to attain high scores.

The Disneyland Railroad has a station in Tomorrowland.

"Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" (opened 1998) 
A 3-D movie that serves as a sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, starring Rick Moranis, Marcia Strassman, Eric Idle, and Robert Oliveri. The basic storyline is that Moranis, as inventor Wayne Szalinski, is demonstrating his shrinking machine at an inventors' awards show and accidentally shrinks the audience. The audience members are given such impressions as dog's sneezing, the auditorium moving, and mice crawling up their legs. The attraction is based on a similar one at Walt Disney World. The movie plays in the Magic Eye Theater, which (opened 1986 and was completely retrofitted for the new film).
Innoventions (opened 1998) 
A large round building housing various games and demonstrations of new technologies, much like Epcot. It uses the same building that formerly housed the Carousel of Progress and America Sings, the outer ring of the building still spins when the attraction is open.
Space Mountain (opened 1977, closed 2003, reopened 2005) 
An indoor roller coaster in the dark. The original white exterior was painted green/gold in 1997, only to be restored to its original white in late 2003. The ride was very popular, but was closed without warning on April 10, 2003 due to safety issues with the track itself. During the closure, the entire track was removed and rebuilt (but with the same layout), and all of the special effects were updated. The ride reopened on July 15, 2005 as part of Disneyland's fiftieth anniversary celebration.
Starcade (opened 1977) 
A large arcade featuring the latest games, air hockey, and often new motion-simulation games. Formerly occupying two levels, currently only the lower level is open.
Star Tours (opened 1987) 
A motion-simulation ride based on the Star Wars universe. Passengers are taken on a sightseeing trip aboard a space cruiser bound for the forest moon of Endor, but the robotic pilot (voiced by Paul Reubens) malfunctions and navigates the ship into all sorts of trouble including flying past the destination, through a field of icy comets, and near battles at the Death Star, before returning to the Star Tours station, where the passengers disembark. The ride queue is particularly entertaining, as it features various audio-animatronics of Star Wars characters and scripted events every few minutes. Adventure Thru Inner Space was originally located inside the building that Star Tours now occupies. The C-3PO in the queue is the actual model used in the original Star Wars movies.

Tarzan's Treehouse at Disneyland
Enchanted Tiki Room (opened 1963
A showcase of animatronic technology, featuring singing birds, flowers, and tiki poles. The Enchanted Tiki Room was the first Disneyland attraction to run entirely by animatronics.
Indiana Jones Adventure (opened 1995) 
A ride based on the popular Indiana Jones franchise. It is an extremely elaborate combination of the dark rides and a motion simulator (the Jeep the riders are in has a motion-control device that moves and shakes the upper section of the vehicle). The basic concept is that looking into "the Eye of Mara" will cause untold calamity, and of course it is virtually impossible not to look. Among many other dangers, the ride climaxes with a recreation of the gigantic boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Jungle Cruise (opened 1955) 
A "skipper" "pilots" a boat (actually on an underwater rail) through a jungle inhabited by wild animals and savages. The river is set in a jungle, combining African, South American, and Indian elements. It is presented as a sight-seeing tour in the early 20th century. An exciting point in the ride features a river hippo surfacing near the boat with gaping jaws, into which the tour guide fires blanks. The skippers originally followed a straight-forward script, but after Walt Disney heard a couple of guests commenting that they didn't need to go on the ride a second time because there was nothing more to see, he instructed the skippers to improvise. The wise-cracks and bad puns practiced by the tour guides have since become the trademark of the Jungle Cruise.
Tarzan's Treehouse (opened 1999) 
A recreation of the treehouse built by Tarzan's parents in the movie of the same name. It is a walkthrough attraction. It was the product of a redesign of the former Swiss Family Treehouse.

New Orleans Square

Main article: New Orleans Square
Disneyland Railroad (opened 1966) 
The Disneyland Railroad has a station in New Orleans Square.
The Haunted Mansion (opened 1969) 
A ride through a haunted mansion in 19th century New Orleans, featuring the voice of the late Paul Frees as the attraction's disembodied "ghost host." The riders are taken throughout the house, the attic, and out the attic window into the graveyard. Between October and December, the ride is overhauled and given a theme based upon Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, a tradition dating to 2001. A 2003 movie, The Haunted Mansion, was based on this ride. On October 21, 2004, Cary "Jay" Sharp, a doctor and health-care attorney from Baton Rouge, Louisiana won a Disney-sponsored auction on eBay for the right to be the first non-Disneyland employee to have his name added to an attraction. With a winning bid of US$37,400, he became the "one thousandth ghost" and had his name and an epitaph placed on a tombstone in the attraction's graveyard scene. All proceeds from the auction were donated to the Boys and Girls Club.
Pirates of the Caribbean (opened 1967) 
A fifteen-minute dark ride, in a boat, through a gallery of animatronic pirates. This was the largest Audio-Animatronic attraction ever created and still ranks among the largest today. The ride seems to be expressing the message that piracy, though initially attractive, will ultimately bring about one's downfall (although as initially conceived and executed, the ride was more purely a trip through scenes of violence and adventure, without any particular moral message). A 2003 movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, was very loosely based on this ride. In mid-2006, additions were added to the ride based on the movie. The update included animatronic versions of Jack Sparrow and Barbossa, the hero and villain of the movie, respectively as well as a ghostly version of Davy Jones from the sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
