Disneyland Paris rides make children's dreams come true and attract millions of visitors to Euro Disney each year. No matter how old you are or what kind of experience you are seeking, you will find a variety of Disney rides perfectly suited for you.
However rides are not the only thing Disneyland Paris has to offer. In fact, the theme park is comprised of Disneyland Park (where the main rides are located), Walt Disney Studios Park (where you can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the realities of film making), Golf Disneyland (home to a 9- and 18-hole golf course created for adults), Disney Village (featuring shops, restaurants, bowling, theaters, and live shows), and Lake Disney (a manmade lake situated in the center of the Euro Disney complex). And since most visitors spend more than a single day enjoying Disneyland Paris rides and taking in all the action, the theme park is also home to seven themed luxury hotels. In fact, it is estimated that this top-rated tourist destination is about one-fifth the size of the city of Paris itself!
Disneyland Paris is an adventure you don't want to miss. To help you make the most of your time there and figure out where to go and what to do first, here is a mini-guide to Disneyland Paris rides:
Rides for Young Children: "Peter Pan's Flight" and "Dumbo the Flying Elephant" will take your children sailing in the air with Peter on a journey to Never Land and swooping with their favorite elephant while getting a great overhead view of the park. They can sail around the Frontierland in a steamer on "Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing" and go spinning in the crowd favorite "Mad Hatter's Tea Cups."
Rides for Older and Taller Children: For roller coaster thrills and chills, head straight to "Space Mountain,' by far one of the most popular Disneyland Paris rides. You can then sail the high seas on "Pirates of the Caribbean', save the universe by zapping enemies from your star cruiser with an elite group of Space Rangers on "Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast," and get blasted warp-speed into the unknown on "Space Mountain: Mission Two." If you decide to board the mine-train ride "Big Thunder Mountain," prepare to hold on tight as you go twisting, turning, and plunging headfirst through rivers and caves. To ride a rollercoaster with Nemo and his friends, head to "Crush's Coaster," and if you are a diehard Indiana Jones fan, you won't want to miss a runaway wagon adventure on "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril." Finally, if you are brave enough to enter an abandoned eerie hotel and face your fears, check out the "Twilight Zone Tower of Terror."
If you're wondering how to reach the Disneyland Paris resort, you can get there by car or train or take a special shuttle directly from the airport. And for the best way to get around Disneyland Paris and reach your favorite Disneyland Paris rides, simply hop on the Disney Railroad which shuttles within and between the two major theme parks.
