If you love nothing more than sitting down to watch a Disney film or you have a child that’s crazy about dressing up as their favourite character, a trip to Disneyland Paris sounds like a great place to take the family.
Which is your favourite? We’ve named a few attractions that make the films and characters come to life!
Alice in Wonderland
Fascinated by Alice in Wonderland? Then you’ll love Alice’s Curious Labyrinth at Disneyland Paris. This adventure through the White Rabbit’s Hole (don’t be late!) is lots of fun as you work your way out of the Queen of Hearts’ Maze, passing various characters along the way – including the famous Cheshire Cat. For another Alice-related attraction, you can’t beat the Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups – much better than the waltzers at your local fairground!
Fans of the popular animated movie will be able to get involved in Buzz Lightyear’s heroic battle with Evil Emperor Zurg on the Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast attractions. It’s great fun firing lasers at moving targets as you sit in your own Space Cruiser in order to stop Zurg from stealing batteries out of the other toys.
If Dumbo is your favourite Disney film, don’t forget to have a ride on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. You’ll climb aboard your very own Dumbo and be treated to an amazing view of the park below as you fly effortlessly through the air.
The Pocahontas Indian Village is great for the kids, and gives adults the chance to sit down and relax for a while. It’ll probably be one of the coolest playgrounds your kids will ever play in with its Native American theme, full of swings, slides and climbing frames.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Captain Sparrow and the Pirates of the Caribbean films are huge but few people know that the franchise was actually inspired by Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride with its dungeons, fortresses and explosions. The nearby Pirate Galleon in the park lets you explore an amazing ship, while the kids will also enjoy the two playgrounds at Pirates’ Beach.
Cross over to the Walt Disney Studios Park to experience an attraction based on everyone’s favourite fish, Nemo. Crush’s Coaster allows you to climb aboard a turtle shell for a thrilling ride past the Great Barrier Reef and through the ocean – without actually getting wet!
Disneyland Paris is perfect for those people who never want to grow up, and there’s no better attraction for the young at heart than Peter Pan’s Flight. The ride takes you on a journey over London before flying to Never Land for an epic duel with Captain Hook.
