15 Disneyland Attractions for Staying Cool

Splash Mountain is great for staying cool at the Disneyland Park. But it’s just one of many Disneyland attractions that can help beat the heat. In fact, both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure have lots of great ways to stay cool and comfortable while visiting the parks.

From the smooth It’s A Small World to the more adventurous Grizzly River Run, there’s something for everyone.

Personally, I like saving these cooler Disneyland attractions for the late afternoon and early evening. That’s when the Southern California days are at their warmest. So keep that in mind when collecting your fast passes.

And now, please sit back, relax, and enjoy this collection of Disneyland Resort’s coolest attractions. It’s like a refreshing breeze!

  • Mark Twain Riverboat 1 of 15
    Mark Twain River Boat Disneyland

     A refreshing cruise aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat in Frontierland.

  • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters 2 of 15

    Indoors, moving cars, and focusing attention on ruling the world makes Buzz Lightyear a great place to stay cool in Tomorrowland.

  • Haunted Mansion 3 of 15

    Don't let that first room bother you. As soon as those creepy characters on the wall reach full stretch, the Haunted Mansion is cool sailing in New Orleans Square.

  • Soarin’ Over California 4 of 15

    Situated in a cool, dark theater, Soarin' Over California in Disney California Adventure's Condor Flats has the added benefit of featuring lots of water imagery to keep one's mind on cool thoughts. Take for example this scene in which guests "fly" over San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.


  • It’s a Small World 5 of 15

    The perennial favorite, it's a small world, is both calming and cooling. It features boats on flat water in an indoor setting in Fantasyland.

  • Jungle Cruise 6 of 15

    You could get misted on the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland, but the lush plant life provides a lot of shade, too.

  • World of Color 7 of 15

    World of Color at Disney California Adventure's Paradise Pier is coolest in the front rows. Depending on wind direction, it's possible to get a heavy misting.
