1. The Attractions:
There’s no thrill quite like riding a roller coaster at 100kph, with a soundtrack by Aerosmith blasting in the background of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, unless you’re hurtling through the atmosphere on Space Mountain®: Mission 2! The best part of going to Disneyland® Paris as a grown-up…. You’ll finally be tall enough to try all the attractions!
2. The Relaxation:
After getting an adrenaline rush on the wildest rides, there’s plenty of opportunity for some R&R with the on-site Celestia Spa, where you can enjoy facials, scrubs, massages and beauty and nail treatments. Many of the Disneyland® Paris resorts also have pools where you can take a refreshing dip, and fitness centres with state-of-the-art equipment for those after a cardio workout that doesn’t involve a roller coaster.
3. The Romance:
With 7 themed Disney® Hotels to choose from, there’s a style to suit every taste. Whether you want to escape to the deep, dark wood in a cabin at Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch or enjoy the peace and quiet of a mountain retreat – complete with cosy fireplace – at the Disney’s Sequoia Lodge. Guests of Disneyland® Paris Hotels benefit from two extra hours in the theme parks on certain days and priority access to key attractions!
4. The Retail:
Did you know there was also a shopper’s paradise 10 minutes away, at the Vallée Village Outlet Centre? You can stock up on cut-price merchandise from designer brands like Armani, Burberry, Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Longchamp, Max Mara, Versace and more.
5. The Restaurants:
Hungry? If you’re after American diner fare, traditional Italian, seafood or steaks, there’s a place at Disneyland® Paris to satiate your taste buds. Ratatouille-inspired Bistrot Chez Rémy lets you enjoy your dinner from a rat’s eye view with champagne cork seats and jam jar lid tables (and yes, ratatouille is on the menu!), while l’Auberge de Cendrillon offers up French classics in a medieval banquet hall for a fairy-tale twist to the classic dining experience and Texan fare at Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show… with Mickey and friends.
6. The Recreation:
If your idea of heaven involves 9 holes and a putting green, you’ll love Golf Disneyland®. You can also practice your serve at the Disneyland® Paris tennis courts or scale new heights at Davy Crockett’s treetop adventure park.
7. The Entertainment:
When it comes to nightlife, playtime isn’t just for kids. From a buzzing bar scene which will fit your flight of fancy, whether you’re in a New York state of mind, want to take a swig in a saloon setting or prefer your cocktail with a side of piano music to nightly blues, jazz, country and rock concerts, there’s plenty of after-hours entertainment. If you’re in the mood for a real spectacle, Disney Dreams®! is an award-winning lasers, lights and fireworks show.
8. The Characters:
You may feel all grown up, but seeing the classic Disney characters wandering around will most definitely bring out your inner child. From Donald Duck to Snow White, you can see all your favourite childhood heroes at Disneyland® Paris. The daytime parade brings the beloved characters, with lively music and bright costumes, to the streets of Main Street, U.S.A®.
9. The Proximity to Paris:
Nothing says romantic getaway quite like a short break in Paris, and Disneyland® Paris is a mere 35-minute RER train ride from the capital of light and love. Escape from the city for a fun day trip filled with rides and themed restaurants.
10. The Magic:
If you grew up watching Disney films, you’ll love getting behind-the-scenes access to your favourite movie moments with the Studio Tram Tour and the Art of Disney Animation, which gives a crash course in how Disney greats came about. And it’s not too late to be the star of your own drama with the Disney Studio 1 tour. You see, fairy tales can come true.
