Thrilling, exhilarating, and eye-popping attractions are waiting for you and your kiddos in Disneyland Paris. Endless rides, parades, light shows, sights, and sounds – this unique European tourist site is truly a place where dreams do come true. We prepared a rundown of activities, rides, and most interesting restaurants to see in this magical place.
Things to Do
Visit the Sleeping Beauty Castle
One of the icons of Disneyland Paris, the famous Sleeping Beauty Castle, is an absolute must-see. Instantly recognisable, it attracts thousands of visitors each day. And no, not only girls like to take a peek. Boys do, as well!
The true-sized dragon, Maleficent, hides under the entrance, which already announces “trouble”. Only the bravest ones will dare to call her name.
Watch the Parade
Believe us when we say that you don’t want to miss this! If you find a nice viewing spot, kids will get a chance to see characters from their favorite cartoons and books – Toy Story, The Lion King, Anna and Elsa (Frozen), The Jungle Book, and many more. The parade includes a lot of music and dancing, so kids will love it, no doubt.
Meet the characters
It’s nice to watch the parade and dance to the music, but if you want to really blow your kids off their feet, give them a chance to meet some of the characters. Disneyland Park and Princess Pavilion are homes of Disney royalty characters – Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Rapunzel.
If your little ones love Mickey, they will be thrilled to see the most famous mouse in the world. You will see him waving in Fantasyland. Goofy, Spiderman, and many more are waiting for you in the Walt Disney Studios Park.
Watch Mickey’s PhilharMagic
No youngster has left this fantastic, heart-warming show without a smile on their face. It swipes the visitors away into the fun-filled world of Disney stories. Donald Duck will take the kiddos through the world of Disney animation history. In this amazing 4D blend of music and magic, they will enjoy “I Just Can’t Wait to be King”, “A Whole New World”, and a bunch more.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril
Adventureland hides the Temple of Peril and the depths of the jungle. Kiddos, teens especially, like making their way through the jungle with numerous twists, turns, drops, and loops while passing by deadly snakes. This Indiana Jones roller coaster is indeed heart-thumping, but that is what visitors expect when they come here. Both youngsters and adults will scream and giggle during the whole ride.
One of the most memorable, best-beloved attractions among the rides is Ratatouille in Walt Disney Studios. Little ones will see how does the world look like from the perspective of a rat. This 4D experience will make a tour through the kitchen full of Parisian restaurant-like smells that everyone will get instantly hungry.
It’s a Small World
When the moment comes to visit Fantasyland, don’t forget to take your little ones to a timeless attraction – It’s a Small World. This 10-minute boat tour is suitable for children of all ages. It takes you through the magical world where all of the characters sing and dance. It is a truly breath-taking experience for kiddos 4-7 years.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Endlessly exhilarating, the pirate adventure is full of unpredicted moments. One second, you are dry, the next one – you are splashed! If you are coming here with teens, they will love seeing Captain Barbossa and the gang and experience real thrills while on the boat. It is located in Adventureland, just like Indiana Jones.
Bistrot Chez Remy
Bistrot Chez Remy is a type of restaurant that serves mouth-watering meals only (roasted cod, grilled steak, chocolate mousse). Treat yourself and the kids in this Ratatouille-inspired spot. Everything here is designed so the visitors can all imagine themselves like Remy. Kids simply love being here for super-sized plates, cookbooks, cutlery, and umbrellas- and it’s all gigantic.
Auberge De Cendrillon
Located in Fantasyland, this restaurant is a place where your little princess can meet Cinderella, Aurora, and Rapunzel. Princesses will meet you at your table and have a chat with your beloved one. This lovely experience gets even better when your food arrives. They serve absolutely amazing desserts that are decorated accordingly.
This restaurant is widely famous for the character interaction. Each character at Inventions will visit the table and entertain the kids. The family can enjoy contemporary art in this Victorian era-like restaurant, delicious recipes, and experience a new level of amusement while dining.
