    We took rides at Disney Land.

    Is this sentence correct and natural?
    We took rides at Disney Land.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    I would say: we went on the rides at Disneyland.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Re: We took rides at Disney Land.

    Tedmc is correct. We don't "take rides" at a theme park. You might hear someone say "We took a ride on the rollercoaster" but not "We took a rollercoaster ride" (that sounds like you stole it!)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
