It is based on the Rite of Spring segment of the 1940 Disney animated feature film Fantasia.
In Disneyland, it comes immediately after the Grand Canyon between the Tomorrowland and Main Street stations. In Tokyo Disneyland, it is located in a mining shaft behind Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, heralded by a Triceratops skeleton at the entrance to the tunnel.
At the Primeval World, guests see a number of dinosaurs in a supposed natural habitat after traveling back in time.
Dinosaurs and other Prehistoric Animals
Edaphosaurus - Actually a reptile that died out before the dinosaurs existed, though this is a common mistake. They are among the first creatures shown, and have characteristic glowing red eyes.

The Tyrannosaurus rex near the end has a number of anatomical faults:
