Must See Attractions at Disneyland Paris!


I felt like Aurora!  Disneyland Paris was a beautiful Dream!   

Tucked just outside the city, Disneyland Paris has two theme parks just waiting to whisk you away into the Magical World of Disney!  Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios bring the best of Disney’s American parks to Europe with a Parisian Twist!  

Disneyland Park 

Sleeping Beauty’s Castle 

At the heart of Fantasyland stands Sleeping Beauty’s Castle!  Just gorgeous!  


And a hidden gem to this Castle?  Maleficent’s Dragon is in the basement!   

But… there’s more… Disney Dreams Nighttime Show! 

The nighttime show combines fireworks and castle effects for an enchanting story and experience as you help Tinkerbell and the many Disney characters recapture the magic and light the castle!  We truly loved it! 

The Phantom Manor 

Remember the Haunted Mansion’s Bride in the Attic who had so many husbands?  Well… this is her house!   


It was so creepy because it had a real Southern feel to it: almost like it could be in my Grandmother’s house or in my neighborhood! 

Jedi Training 

Jedi Training was the traditional Jedi Training Academy of old where the Younglings are fighting Darth Vader.  The best part – it was an inside theater!  What a great idea for the new Star Wars Lands! 

Space Mountain Mission 2 


This whole new Mission for Space Mountain with its Steampunk feel, holograms, and new age music, gives an exciting energy to this favorite ride. 

Walt Disney Studios 

Tower of Terror 

Each Tower has its own personality, as does the one in Disneyland Paris.  Just when you think you’ve seen all the surprises, there is just one more drop! 

Ratatouille 


This ride was our favorite and needs to be in Epcot, France!  You become as small as a Rat and help Remy survive numerous obstacles in order to create a fabulous meal!    

Toy Story Playland 

Everything here was new and exciting: a fun, family place to be!  We could ride the Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop and get dizzy on RC Racer again and again! 

Mickey and the Magician 


Mickey and the Magician is by far the best Disney stage show since Aladdin!  It is a mix of Mickey and the Magical Map and the Broadway show Lion King.  Very entertaining! 
   
As you can tell, it didn’t take us long to get caught up in the Magic of Disneyland Paris!   
Disneyland Paris can be a Dream Come True for you and your family, too!  

Know Before You Go!
Security at Disneyland Paris is paramount!  Whether you arrive by train or dropped off at your resort, your luggage will have to be screened.  Be prepared to have those items that might trigger an alarm - such as your metals - out of the bag.

Disneyland Paris is in a remote area.  You will not have access to stores and amenities that you are used to at Disneyland California, Walt Disney World, or even at your hotel in Paris.  If you need something specific, grab it at the airport, or at a convenience store in Paris before you leave.  

This year will be the 25th Birthday Party for Disneyland Paris!  They are refurbishing rides and resorts, and should be spectacular!
