  • This is one of the older rides in the park, but still enjoyable to try--if only to get a feel for the park when it first opened. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • Pinocchio's daring journey is a fun-filled ride through the story of Pinocchio's journey to becoming a real boy. Along the way he learns that there are consequences both good and bad for the decisions that one makes. It's also classic Disneyland dark ride fair and the cues are generally lighter than the other rides in Fantasyland!
  • Pinocchio's daring journey ride featuring child slavery and animal cruelty and Native American stereotypes. I have been to Disneyland with my family but if there's one ride I would not go on again it's Pinocchio's daring journey ride. I didn't like the depiction of slavery and animal cruelty showing Stromboli's child abuse on Pinocchio, then later the greedy Coachman becoming a slave master and having child slavery with the boys as donkeys working in the mines. Also why does this ride advertise cigars, I never liked smoking ever. Also why are they featuring Native American stereotype statues smoking peace pipes? I thought they were trying to be inclusive to all cultures. If there's a ride I would like to see replaced, it would be Pinocchio's Daring Journey,, The upcoming Pinocchio 2022 film is coming up so now would be a good time for Disneyland to shutdown Pinocchio's Daring Journey ride and remove the Native American stereotype statues and cages from donkey boys. If the Disneyland workers reads this review, please replace this ride with a different one, how about retheming Pinocchio's Daring Journey ride with Kingdom Hearts finding Pinocchio based on the Disney Square Enix game, that would replace the Pinocchio ride I want to see retired. I would much rather go on those happier themed rides than this controversial depressing Pinocchio ride glorifying child slavery and abuse, please let the Disneyland company know this ride is not family friendly and have them replace it with a newer ride that's more family friendly appropriate. The sooner they replace the ride the better because Disneyland's supposed to be the Happiest place on Earth. Pinocchio's ride is the exact opposite and depicts child slavery in a negative way and it makes me feel upset when I see child slavery or animal cruelty depicted in a ride. And while you're at it you may want to remove the cigar ads, and Native American stereotypes smoking peace pipes, it's no longer acceptable for Disneyland family friendly theme park.
