Luckily, all of these rides are still open and operating around the world, and many of them are brand new experiences using the best technology and effects that Imagineering has ever been able to dream up. Flagship rides such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at Tokyo DisneySea, Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure at Shanghai Disneyland, and Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom prove that no matter what, Disney attractions are the best in the biz.
