    Info on each ride on website is meager. What rides would 10 & 11 year old girls like best? They don't get sick on rides.

    Hi there, Tamara! Thanks for stopping by planDisney. 

    Your trip to The Happiest Place on Earth is just over a month away - how exciting! I've got three kids and two of them are close in age to yours, so let's get planning.

    Let's start in Disneyland Park. My kids are thrill seekers and if yours are too (or are at least willing to ride anything once), they might like to try three rollercoasters - Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Matterhorn Bobsleds. Just watch out for the Abominable Snowman and mountain goats! In Adventureland, check out Jungle Cruise and Indiana Jones Adventure. The Jungle Cruise is quintessential Disneyland and Indiana Jones Adventure is a bit more of a thrill. Beware of snakes!

    If they are Star Wars fans like me, they will also want to check out Star Tours - The Adventures Continue in Tomorrowland and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. My daughter loves being the pilot of the Millennium Falcon! Don't forget to try Blue Milk or Green Milk from the Milk Stand in Batuu after you jump to lightspeed.

    Another favorite attraction of the whole family in Disneyland is Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway in Mickey's Toontown. The technology is immersive and so much fun! 

    In Disney California Adventure Park, try Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! and Radiator Springs Racers for some thrills. Note that Guardians of the Galaxy has several drops so it may not be for everyone (though my 7-year-old daughter loves it!). For some silly fun, our favorites are Goofy's Sky School, Toy Story Midway Mania!, and Pixar Pal-A-Round with a swinging gondola!

    Tamara, if you need more ideas on rides your girls might like, the Disneyland Mobile App has a filter function to help you and your family discover your next favorite ride! From the app home screen, tap the "Pin" icon on the bottom navigation bar. This will open the Disneyland Resort Map and you will want to click "Filter" at the top left of the screen. Here you can filter rides based on Location, Thrill Factor, Age, Height, and more! 

    I hope this information helps plan your perfect park day, Tamara. May you and your family have a most magical visit!

    See ya real soon,
