California vs. Paris: Park Two, Cars And Armageddon
. The three DCA attractions with the closest equivalents in WDSP are The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, the Animation building and Disney Junior: Live on Stage. I shall be doing full comparisons of these over the coming months. If rumors are to be believed, WDSP will also be getting an equivalent of Soarin' Over California in the coming years.
It is worth mentioning that whilst DCA and WDSP have daily parades, these are nothing like each other, and that the latter doesn't have a night-time show. In the past, both have had a traveling concert based on the High School Musical franchise, various forms of streetmosphere and PUSH, the talking trash can.
Several of the attractions in WDSP (such as Flying Carpets Over Agrabah, Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Avec Aerosmith and Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular) are much more comparable to attractions in Walt Disney World. Likewise four of the WDPS attractions are practically carbon copies of attraction in Hong Kong Disneyland: Stitch Live!, RC Racer, Toy Soldier Parachute Drop and Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin. (Arguably, Toy Soldier Parachute Drop is a re-themed version of Jumpin' Jellyfish at DCA and Tokyo DisneySea; and Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin is a re-themed version of Scuttle's Scooters at Tokyo DisneySea).
The remainder of the attractions in WDSP are unique to that specific park. These are Crush's Coaster, CineMagique, Animagique, Cars Quatre Roues Rallye, Armageddon: les Effets Speciaux and (as of later this year) Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquee de Remy.
Crush's Coaster is a spinning roller coaster themed to Finding Nemo and, to date, has the only animatronics of WDSP; CineMagique is a series of film clips with some surprises thrown in, and Animagique is a black-light show featuring Donald Duck and his friends, and several musical numbers.
However, the Armageddon and the Cars attractions are of more interest to us here.
Cars Quatre Roues Rallye (which translates as Cars Four Wheel Rally, although the English name is just Cars Race Rally) is a demolition derby type attraction, similar to Francis' Ladybug Boogie at DCA and The Whirlpool at Tokyo DisneySea. Obviously all three have different theming, but they are all made by Zamperla and work in much the same way. However, whereas The Whirlpool and the Ladybug ride each have 6 vehicles, Cars Quatre Roues Rallye has twelve (actually two tracks with six on each) thus making the queue go down quicker.

I was looking at DLDHistory one day and realizing the huge amount of content that we have that no other site has.
The problem is trying to sort through all of it and put together a nice time line of the History of Disneyland. I also watched most of the Disneyland Historical DVD's available, official and unofficial.
None of the DVD's seem to have the complete history of Disneyland including backstage photos and information about deaths and injuries, rare video clips etc.
This project has taken over 3 years to compile.
We have created a full length Disneyland History DVD. The DVD series 2013 version is a 15 disc set covering the full history of Disneyland. The discs are available individually or as a box set. The DVD's contain all attraction openings, parades, deaths, injuries, trivia, backstage photos and lots more. To my knowledge no DVD has ever been created with this type of content.
Our Gold members receive a 50% discount.
We offer previews for each disc on our YouTube Channel.
We are shipping series2013 version copies NOW!
