Disneyland Paris Fantasyland is great for younger children and little girls in particular love the famous Sleeping Beauty’s Castle called Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant.
What’s in Fantasy Land
There are sixteen attractions featuring Disney favourites from Peter Pan to Dumbo the Elephant. The rides tend to be more suitable for younger children, carousels, rides, giant cups and saucers in the Alice in Wonderland labyrinth.
Towering over the area is the Castle of Sleeping Beauty.
Some of the rides were pronounced as “quite tame” by our testers but you have to have a balance and there are plenty of rides at Disney in Paris that smaller children cannot go on.
On the whole we found it charming – lots of greenery, lots of flower beds, pretty colours everywhere and plenty of room though very crowded at peak times.
Favourites were: Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, the shop selling Sleeping Beauty dresses (!) and the Dumbo carousel.
All the attractions:
Sleeping Beauty’s Castle – a dimly lit castle with lovely stained glass windows and some artefacts to remind you of the story. Stairs leading to La Galerie de la Belle au Bois Dormant (Sleeping Beauty’s Gallery)
Dumbo the Flying Elephant – a really pretty carousel, high and fast enough for little children to find it very exciting!
It’s a Small World – a musical tour of the world with dolls singing happy songs
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Pinocchio’s Fantastic Journey – a ride featuring a puppet show
Peter Pan’s Flight – a ride featuring Peter Pan and of course Tinkerbelle. Fastpass available for this ride due to its popularity.
Alice’s Curious Labyrinth – great floral arrangements, water spouts and crazy features in a maze
Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups – a colourful ride
Le Pays de Contes de Fées (Storybook Land Canal Boats) – gentle boat ride
La Tanière du Dragon (The Dragon’s Lair) – dimly lit area where you can “see a dragon sleeping”
Casey Jr. – le Petit Train du Cirque – very gentle ride
