Description And Comments
Pinocchio's Daring Journey is the newest of the Fantasyland dark rides, built in 1983. It's another twisting, curving track ride in the dark, this time tracing the adventures of Pinocchio as he tries to find his way home. Unfortunately, the action is hard to follow, and it lacks continuity. Although the sets are three-dimensional and the attraction has a decent length, the story line is dull and fails to engage the guest. In the ride's defense, it features some deliciously trippy Pleasure Island imagery, a clever vanishing Blue Fairy effect, and almost always an empty queue.
- Open for Early Entry.
The word must be out about Pinocchio because the lines are seldom very long. Still, the longest waits occur 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. During peak times of the year, it can get very backed up.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Pinocchio's Daring Journey when you visit on a day with a given Disneyland Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Pinocchio's Daring Journey Wait Times.
A big letdown.
