When you think of heading to a Disney theme park for a family vacation, you probably think about heading to Disneyland in Anaheim, California, or Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, right? In fact, there are actually 12 Disney theme parks around the world. In addition to the two parks in California and the four in Florida, Disney has two parks in Tokyo, two in Paris, one in Hong Kong, and one in Shanghai. While some rides — like “it’s a small world” and some variation of The Haunted Mansion — are staples across continents, there are some rides that you’ll have to travel a long, long way to experience. Unless, of course, these rides come to the American parks.

Some of the marquee attractions from Disney parks around the globe are already on their way to the U.S. In 2017, Disney announced that Ratatouille from Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris will be coming to Epcot and the thrilling Tron Lightcycle Power Run from Shanghai Disneyland is on its way to Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.
And that got us thinking… What other international Disney theme park rides do we want in America?
So we scoured the six international parks for their best and most unique attractions that would fit in somewhere at Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom. Of course, we got a little selfish with our list — but hey, if Disney taught us anything, it’s that we should dream big. And these are our dream Disney attractions for American parks.
