As Euro Disneyland was being constructed, Michael Eisner stressed to the imagineers that this had to be the most beautiful park, and wow did they rise to the challenge. Anyone who’s had the pleasure to visit this resort surely has felt the charm oozing out of every corner, or found themselves captivated by the stunning sightlines and impeccable detail that Walt Disney Imagineering brought to this park.
Yes, there are areas of the resort that could use a lot of love, but there is something about Disneyland Paris that makes if feel as if you’ve been transported into a storybook. Maybe it’s because the resort is big enough that you can’t experience it all in one visit, or maybe its the French culture and food, but more than likely it’s simply Disney magic.
In the past three years, Laughing Place has had the incredible good fortune to visit the resort multiple times to experience different seasons. We’ve come back with some wonderful pictures and videos and wanted to share some of our favorites with you.
Main Street U.S.A.
This is the best land in the park. Not only is it home to best version of Thunder Mountain, but it also houses the incredible Phantom Manor and both “properties” as legend tells it belong to the Ravenswood family.
If you’re anxious to explore on your visit, this is the place to do it!
A Little Backstage Magic
We snapped these pictures during a runDisney race weekend when the course takes runners backstage!
This land draws inspiration from the works of Jules Verne, and captures that otherworldly feel that the other Tomorrowlands can’t quite seem to grasp.
Walt Disney Studios Park
Paris’ second gate may have been built out of contractual necessity and has undoubtedly had more than its fair share of problems, but it’s certainly not without some charm.
Disneyland Paris Hotels
Yes, folks this is the grounds of a resort, but if feels like you’ve been transported out west during the 1800s!
Newport Bay Club Hotel
Classy and elegant this resort feels like the three locations surrounding Walt Disney World’s Crescent Lake—Yacht Club, Beach Club, and BoardWalk—were all rolled into one.
Hotel New York
This resort is currently closed, but will reopen soon as Hotel New York–The Art of Marvel.
