1. Admire the Sleeping Beauty Castle (Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant)

The Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris is arguably the most stunning of all Disney castles. Even after five days in the park, I couldn’t stop myself from staring and taking countless pictures. This castle is more interactive than some other Disney castles, featuring a dungeon with a fire-breathing dragon and a balcony with incredible stained glass scenes from Sleeping Beauty, intricate tapestries, and much more. Be sure to save time to explore every nook and cranny of this magical castle.

2 . Ride the Classic Disney Attractions

Disneyland Paris offers many classic Disney attractions and some with unique twists. Enjoy Phantom Manor, Tower of Terror, Star Wars: Hyperspace Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it’s a small world, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more. Phantom Manor has a different storyline and a darker feel compared to Haunted Mansion. The Tower of Terror features more intense drops and creepier elements, including a haunting little girl at the end of the hallway. Hyperspace Mountain offers a smoother, cooler experience than its Orlando counterpart, Space Mountain. Big Thunder Mountain’s cushioned seats and longer ride time make it a must-try. Although Pirates of the Caribbean has a slightly different layout and drop, we prefer the WDW version.

3. Eat Dinner at Bistrot Chez Rémy

Disneyland Paris was the first Disney park to premiere Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and is also home to Bistrot Chez Rémy, a restaurant perfectly themed to the Pixar movie, Ratatouille. There’s nothing more special than riding this attraction, exiting to the restaurant, then enjoying a delicious dinner that makes you feel completely immersed in the movie. This table service restaurant, located in Walt Disney Studios Park, allows guests to shrink down to the size of Remy, with seats, decor, and whimsical touches like champagne corks, silverware, jam jar lids, and pots. The menu features French cuisine with prix fixe menus at different price points, offering dishes like steak frites, ratatouille, pâté en croûte, and much more. We recommend pairing your meal with a bottle or glass of the delicious Cuvée Bistrot Chez Rémy Saint-Émilion.
