Back in the late 80s and early 90s, when Capcom was making numerous video games based on Disney franchises such as TV cartoons ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' and ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'', and the movie ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', they decided to try their hand at a game based on Disneyland itself.

''Adventures in the Magic Kingdom'' can be seen as an early precursor to ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', or more accurately, ''VideoGame/KinectDisneylandAdventures''. You play the role of a boy whose name you determine, who explores the place and goes on rides that are essentially minigames, in an attempt to collect 6 keys to open the gate needed to start the Disneyland parade. You also meet a small handful of Disney characters.

* PiratesOfTheCaribbean (created before the movie of the same name, and therefore not themed after it)

* PiratesOfTheCaribbean Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean (created before the movie of the same name, and therefore not themed after it)


The first two of those rides play out as platformers, with slightly different rules - in PiratesOfTheCaribbean, you start out unarmed and must avoid enemies until you collect a candle, which you can then use infinite times, as you try to rescue all 6 hostages. In Ride/TheHauntedMansion, you have a limited supply of candles to use to fight ghosts, and your only goal is to reach the end. The other three games are straight-up minigame in their style.

* NeverSayDie: While TheHauntedMansion has a backstory involving ghosts that, according to Mickey, "might want you", any mention or direct implication of death is avoided. If you die, you simply get "I'm sorry, you'll have to try again." Even if it's a ghost saying it. Almost as if they're not really killing you. But then again, this ''is'' a theme park after all.
