Planning a trip to Disneyland Paris? Keep an eye out for these 12 unique attractions and experiences.

From a popular Finding Nemo roller coaster to a restaurant inspired by Walt Disney's favourite foods, these are the things that should be at the top of your Disneyland Paris bucket list…

Disneyland Paris Exclusive Attractions 

Crush’s Coaster

Crush's Coaster is located in the Walt Disney Studios Park. Disneyland Paris.

Crush’s Coaster is a firm favourite for many Disneyland Paris guests. The Finding Nemo-themed ride is a spinning roller coaster ride that primarily takes place inside, except for one portion of the track that flings riders outside. The majority of the ride is dark, with projections and live props to create the feeling of being underwater.

The attraction has zero inversions, but the spinning nature of the ride delivers all the thrills. We recommend heading here early to rope drop (or fork out for Disney Premier Access) as the lines are long all day and the single rider line is usually an equally long wait if it’s running.

La Tanière du Dragon/The Dragon’s Lair

Ready for a surprise? The most unique attraction only found in Disneyland Paris is La Tanière du Dragon. Head around to the left of the Sleeping Beauty castle to find a secret entrance into the dragon’s lair. Here, a living (well, kinda), breathing dragon awaits.

The giant audio-animatronic dragon is loosely based on Maleficent's dragon. Stay for five minutes and the dragon will wake up and begin to breathe smoke. A word of warning: it can be frightening for smaller children, but it’s a treat for older guests.

Walt's - An American Restaurant

Somewhat tucked away on Main Street, U.S.A. is Walt’s – An American Restaurant. This dining location is ideal for big Disney fans as it pays homage to Walt Disney himself. 

You’ll be able to spot family photos and nods to his Disneyland Park apartment throughout the dining area. And, if that wasn’t interesting enough, the food has plenty of connections to Walt’s favourite dishes – including his favourite chilli and beans in a can.

Les Mystères du Nautilus

One of the best-kept secrets at Disneyland Paris is Les Mystères du Nautilus. This walkthrough submarine is an updated version of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea attraction that was originally at Disneyland in the 50s.

You’ll find the submarine submerged in water in Discoveryland, Disneyland Paris’ version of Tomorrowland. The ship features six rooms, including Captain Nemo’s Cabin and the Diving Chamber, and guests are free to explore at their own pace.

Alice’s Curious Labyrinth

Towards the back of Fantasyland, Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a pretty large hedge maze. Guests are invited to go down the rabbit hole and try to escape via plenty of ridiculous signs and teeny-tiny doors. The Queen's Castle stands at the centre of the maze, offering wonderful views of the park from the top.

While Shanghai Disneyland has a somewhat similar maze based on the more recent movie adaptations of Alice in Wonderland, Disneyland Paris’ version is bursting with nostalgic charm.

Cars Road Trip

Cars Road Trip is a recent addition to Walt Disney Studios Park – it opened in 2021, replacing Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic. The attraction takes guests through a series of scenes, with the highlight being the Cars-tastrophe Canyon which sets ablaze and then promptly suffers a flash flood.

Avengers Assemble: Flight Force

While it technically has the same ride system as Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Disneyland Paris boasts an exclusive Marvel attraction in Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. After closing in 2019, the attraction reopened in July 2022 with the rest of the Avengers Campus.

The storyline follows Tony Stark and his assistant FRIDAY, who invite hopeful Avengers to board Stark spaceships and assist the team in fighting off warheads. This LSM launch coaster sends guests from 0-57 mph in 2.8 seconds, before hurtling through space at high speeds.

Bistrot Chez Remy

Fancy dining in one of the most unique restaurants across Disney parks worldwide? Bistrot Chez Remy shrinks guests down to the size of a rat and transports them into a dining room where everything else is huge – we’re talking bottle caps for chairs and plates as booth dividers.

It’s not the cheapest place to dine but the quality is outstanding. The menu itself is typically French… and yes, both ratatouille and linguine are available.

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain

While there are five versions of Space Mountain around the world, Disneyland Paris’ offering is the only version to feature inversions. It’s currently in its Star Wars: Hyperspace Mountain form, with a Star Wars overlay and galactic soundtrack. 

We love that Disneyland Paris’ Space Mountain is far more intense than its Walt Disney World counterpart. The ride vehicles are different – a more typical roller coaster train – plus this version requires over-the-shoulder restraints.

Adventure Isle

If you’re travelling with kids – big or small – Adventure Isle is a great place to let off some steam. These two man-made islands are ripe for exploration and are a very unique feature of Disneyland Paris. 

Here’s where you’ll find La Cabane des Robinson (Swiss Family Treehouse) and a series of dark caves to wind your way through. Keep your eyes peeled as you can spot Carl and Russell from Up on the edge of the water near Colonel Hathi’s Outpost.

Liberty + Discovery Arcade

Liberty and Discovery Arcade are two shopping passages flanking either side of Main Street, U.S.A. Not only are these gas-lit walkways seriously beautiful, but they’re also a great way to escape the crowds that head down the main footpath.

These passages contain detailed artwork and are decorated in a Victorian style. Plus you can enter many of the Main Street shops through back entrances via these passageways.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril

While Tokyo DisneySea has the near-identical Raging Spirits, DLP’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril is a very fun (but incredibly rough) Indie-themed coaster. Tucked away behind Adventure Isle, this roller coaster is easily missed.

The attraction is based on the movie franchise and sends guests on a minecart adventure through a lost temple, where chaos ensues. When it opened in 1993, it became the first roller coaster in a Disney theme park to feature an inversion.
