What to Ride First in Adventureland
Adventureland is just that—full of intrigue and adventure. Plus, it’s soon to become a well traveled path to the new Star Wars land that has already broken ground at Disneyland park. Head here first for big thrills and fun family expeditions including Indiana Jones, Jungle Cruise and nearby attractions like Enchanted Tiki Room and Tarzan’s Treehouse.
What to Ride First in Adventureland: Indiana Jones Adventure
Indiana Jones Adventure offers a FASTPASS so I recommend grabbing a FASTPASS and relaxing on the Jungle Cruise or getting a Dole Whip and checking out the Enchanted Tiki Room while you wait for your FASTPASS time slot. While I wouldn’t worry about running straight to Adventureland when the park opens, Indiana Jones is the clear first-ride winner.
Bonus Tip: If you have a mixture of ages and heights in your group, read about the Rider Switch program here and see what to do with little ones while you wait. Plus, Indiana Jones has a Single Rider line which can get you on quick and without a FASTPASS.
