Last month, I really enjoyed working on more Disney related posts such as What Disney Means to Me and My Favourite Disney Items. Disney has always been a huge part of my life ever since I was little, I have a Disney category on my blog but I rarely post anything in it so I’ve worked hard on turning that around and going forward, I would love to feature Disney related posts much more regularly. Disneyland Paris holds a very special place in my heart. It was my first holiday ever when I was 5 and I’ve been twice since then. I’m dying to go back which I have faith that I will do soon but for now, I’m talking about my favourite Disneyland Paris attractions!

* Apologies for the slightly dreadful quality images in this post. These were all taken on an old camera back in 2011.

Main Street U.S.A

Obviously one of the very first things you encounter in the park, I absolutely love Main Street! Despite everything being awfully expensive (let’s not fib, it is), I bloody love strolling around the shops and looking at the array of Disney merch on sale! It’s such a beautiful and photo-worthy street to shop, eat and watch the parade from!

Peter Pan’s Flight

Although not especially thrilling, Peter Pan’s Flight is probably my joint favourite ride (coming to my other favourite later). Whilst I don’t have a photo of any of it, for those that love Peter Pan, it’s a lovely ride which takes you literally out the window and through the story. My last 2 visits, I’ve made it my first and last ride when arriving and leaving!

Big Thunder Mountain

Big Thunder Mountain is my second joint favourite ride in Disneyland Paris. I’ve always been a bit wary of roller coasters; I’m the kinda person that’ll cry and cry until I go on it and then I wanna go on it again and again. But BTM was always a ride I immensely enjoyed! I love the theme and going underground. It’s just really fun.

It’s a Small World

I don’t really know why I love It’s a Small World so much but I think it’s because it reminds me of my parents and being a kid. Apparently when I was younger, I didn’t know the words to the song so I used to make them up and it was hilarious. It’s just a lovely, slow ride and the song actually has some nice lyrics!

Crush’s Coaster

Crush’s Coaster is probably the most fun ride I’d say, it’s a shame the queue is always soooo long for this one! Fortunately, we were in the queue when it broke down so got a free fast pass for later in the day because we were waiting so long, woohoo! If you love Finding Nemo and hurtling through the dark then this is one for you!

If you’ve been to Disneyland Paris, I’d love to hear what your favourite attractions and rides are! Any the same as mine? 


  1. Peter Pan’s Flight is ~ so damn magical ~ I came off it in very happy tears! Walking down Mainstreet USA always gets me a bit emotional too! Xx

  2. Love the photos! I just moved to Paris recently and have been itching to go visit Disneyland. I’m slightly put off at the idea of all the crowds, but I feel like everyone has to go to Disneyland at least once in their lifetime – right?

  3. It’s so hard but…

    Peter pans flight (especially since the refurb)

    Dumbo (can’t beat a classic)

    Ratatouille (though it needs some tlc)

    Buzz lightyear lazer blast (because toystory)

    And star tours

    Those are my top faves but tbf I enjoy most of the rides! Hope you get to go back soon!

  4. I’ve never been before but dream of taking my kids one day 😊 I’ll have to visit these attractions when the day comes!

  5. Gosh it’s been ages since I have been to Disneyland Paris, think I was about ten! But this post brings back some fond memories! Thunder Mountain sticks out in my memory most x x x

  6. It’s a Small World is such a let down compared to Florida – but maybe I am just holding it to higher expectations!

    However, I do love DLP’s Big Thunder Railroad a lot more than WDW.

    I think my favourite DLP attraction will always be Space Mountain!

  7. I go to Disneyland in SoCal all the time and can totally relate to you about loving Disney!! Big Thunder and Small World are my favorite rides! I like that your version of Big Thunder looks more adventurous! Thanks for sharing your faves!

  8. We went to Disneyland Paris when my daughter was only 3 months old. I love it, and I’m hoping to go again next year. I love Crush’s Coaster, mainly because it’s one of the attractions they don’t have in WDW. But all the other attractions you mentioned are favourites of mine too, on both sides of the pond

  9. Aww yes! This post brought back all my happy Disney memories! 😍 I have been twice, most recently with my sister a few years ago. I agree with your choices, the parade is always fantastic to watch and Big Thunder Mountain is a pretty cool ride. I’m such a big kid and want to get photos with all the Disney characters when I’m there 😄. Great post Jenny! 😘 xx

  10. Wow every time I see something relating to DisneyLand Paris I think it gets more breathtaking 😍 I love Disney and from the one I saw your post was on one of my must go to locations I had to click. You’re so lucky you got to visit 3 times. Your fave spots look magical 🧙🏽‍♀️🔮 I think I’d thoroughly enjoy Peter Pan Flight and Big Thunder ⛰! Great post Jen!

  11. So many people love It’s a Small World but it’s not for me, I went on it last time I visited but will give it a miss on future trips! I never got to go on Big Thunder as it was closed on my last trip so I’m so excited to go on it this time! Crush’s Coaster is definitely one of my favourite rides! I’m not a huge fan of big thrill rides so this is just enough for me to cope with absolutely love it! Great post hun you chose some good ones!

  12. Ahhh this has made me so excited! I’m going to Disneyland Paris for the first time next month!! Have been to WDW before but i’m crazy excited to be back in a Disney paradise 🙂

  13. Love this! I’m a massive Disney fan too but I’ve never been to Paris. If the rides are pretty much the same as Orlando then I’d definitely enjoy your recommendations! And 100% agree with how magical Main Street is! Xx

      1. But there’s so many rides, so little time! I don’t want to spend my time stuck on a slow ride when there’s so many more exciting things to see and do! 🙂

  14. I have not yet been to Disneyland Paris (I remember when it opened as Eurodisney!), but I hope to. I’ve been to Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida several times. Like you, I love Peter Pan’s Flight and Big Thunder Mountain.

  15. I’ve never been to Disneyland Paris but I would love to take my niece there one day. I went to Disneyworld in Florida when I was about 10, it was such a fun experience and the rides were all so exciting!

  16. Crush’s coaster was unexpectedly thrilling for me! I thought it was gona be a story type ride, I did not know it was a proper roller coaster. Plus there were so many tiny kids going on, it totally surprised me to find out while on the ride it was a thrill ride! Kids now a-days are braver than I was!

  17. Space Mountain is literally my favourite ride ever in Disneyland Paris! I wasn’t able to ride it first time as I was too small, but went back and certainly made up for it. Rock’n’Rollercoaster is defo another of my faves.
