Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris, also known as EuroDisney is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Paris. Being the only tourist destination of its kind in the whole Europe, Disneyland Paris is perfect for both children and adults. It was opened on 12th April 1992 after several years of planning and construction. It never went exactly to those ambitious plans, but Disneyland Paris offers without doubt some of the most unforgettable vacations. Despite the fact that many critics thought that the Disney Project will fail because France is a country of haute culture, millions have visited since it was opened (amidst much anti-Mickey controversy). Over 15 million visitors come here every year to enjoy the color and gaiety; two full theme parks, seven themed hotels, shopping and dining options and entertainment strip are available for you and your family!
Things to do
Disneyland Resort Paris is a mix of amusement park rides, unique themed dining experiences, themed hotels and many other recreational attractions. In other words, EuroDisney has something to offer every visitor; either you are a very playful child, a very caring parent or a very active granny.
The Disneyland Resort Paris complex consists of:
  • Disneyland Park Paris. The first Disneyland Paris theme park is Disneyland Park Paris, which includes many of the same features you’ll find at other Disney properties. There’s Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Discoveryland, and the popular Main Street U.S.A. A Disney train runs through several of the different “lands,” allowing for easy access between them.
  • Walt Disney Studios Park. The second themed park in Disneyland Paris, opened in 2002, is Walt Disney Studios Park; its theme is “The world of cinema and television”. The other theme park in Disneyland Paris is Walt Disney Studios Park. Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which plunges visitors in a freefall for 13 floors, is the most popular attraction of this park. There's also a tram tour of the studios and a number of attractions susceptible to interest young visitors.
  • Disney Village. Besides amusement park rides, Disneyland Paris offers a great array of restaurants, bars, cinemas, shops, a game arcade, an IMAX theater, a permanent venue for the Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, and many other crazy and live entertainment for the whole family which can be found all together at Disney Village. There's also a whole host of music festivals and live concerts throughout the year offering something for everyone.
  • Golf Disneyland. As was mentioned above, Disneyland is for people of all ages; so Golf Disneyland which has both 9-hole and 18-hole courses invites golfers to enjoy a spectacular year round venue. Although there is a kids section of Golf Disneyland, too. Beginners can sign up for lessons, and those looking to improve their scores can take advantage of the training area to fine-tune their game and pick up some pointers.
  • Lake Disney. There is a man-made lake at EuroDisney located next to Disney Village, at the center of three of the park’s resort hotels: Disney's Hotel New York, Disney's Newport Bay Club and Disney's Sequoia Lodge. It is very pretty and canoes, pedalos, rowing and electrical boats and quadri-cycles are available every day depending on weather conditions
  • Seven themed hotels. For those who want a little bit more special vacation, Disneyland Paris has seven themed hotels to offer. All Disneyland Paris hotels are within walking distance of Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park and Disney Village. Along with their individual themes, the Disney hotels are amazing places for the whole family to rest after a day in the Parks.
