So are you game for some technicolor adventure? This is the place where all your cartoon fantasies merge into reality. Adventureland is where you can wander through the markets of Agrabah, or if you are into the more macho stuff, then cross the rope bridge and enter the adventure isle. Enter at your own risk. After such an active day, the many restaurants around will make you happy. Eat at Colonel Hathi's Pizza Outpost or the Blue Lagoon Restaurant, or better yet the Restaurant Hakuna Matata. And don't leave without entering aboard a small boat, where you can face the cannon fire and the slashing sabers and sing 'ho ho ho and a bottle of rum' - Pirates of the Caribbean style!

Located just a short train ride away from central Paris, the Disneyland resort faced some opposition when it first opened its doors in 1992. Any controversies seem to be all forgotten, Disneyland Paris is now the most visited tourist attraction in Europe, receiving over 15 million visitors every year - that's more than the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower combined. Like other Disney parks around the world, expect to see familiar staples such as Sleeping Beauty castle, Pirates of the Caribbean, Fantasyland and rugged Frontierland. Adventureland is unique, it has an Aladdin theme, including a bazaar and restaurant. Transportation to the park from central Paris is quite easy, just take RER C to Marne-la-Vallé. Train station is located right at the gate of the park. For families wishing to spend a few days exploring the park, there are several fantastic Disney-owned hotels in the area including the impressive art deco Disney's New York Hotel.
Disney and Pixar’s collaborative movie, Toy Story, is the inspiration for the layout of Woody’s Roundup Village in Disneyland. It occupies an expansive area at the Frontierland in the Paris Disneyland. When the park first opened in 1992, the space was called Critter Corral: a farm ranch and a petting zoo. Fifteen years later the area was redesigned, and the animals relocated. Visitors can have conversations with characters like Sheriff Woody or Jessie from the iconic Disney movie.
Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant is the heart of the Disneyland Park in Paris. It is the counterpart to the original Sleeping Beauty Castle in the California Disneyland. The creation of the castle was a massive project. Inspiration was drawn from a Monastery of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, as well as the fanciful illustrations in the Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. The authenticity is apparent in the structure with its towers and turrets, tapestries and colored glass. Peter Chapman, who had formerly worked on the restoration of Notre Dame, was in charge of the installation of the stained-glass windows.
Nestled close to the Castle of Chessy and the fairytalesque Disneyland, Le Bicheret is one of the most idyllic spots one can come across. A glistening pond acts as the centerpiece of the verdant expanse which is riddled with trails and swaying trees. Turning into a winter wonderland during winters, this picturesque park plays host to numerous local and cultural events. Enjoy a music festival or come for a pleasant morning stroll at this lovely park.
