If you are planning a visit to the Disneyland Paris Resort, here are 10 of the best Disneyland Paris Rides.

Best Disneyland Paris rides

At a glance, Disneyland Paris may seem a little too similar to Disney World in Florida. However, there are key differences that make a vacation to the French amusement park totally worth it. When you go, check out these magical places and attractions that’ll guarantee a fun time.

Ratatouille: The Adventure

Get shrunk down to the size of a mouse and scurry across the kitchen floor in your very own rat-mobile. Includes your own 3D glasses and a sneak peek into the Bistrot Chez Remy restaurant.

Phantom Manor 

Darker and scarier than your average Disney Haunted Mansion, Phantom Manor is the french take on a very popular theme. It is also said to be the best haunted mansion in all of Disney’s theme parks. .

Pirates of the Carribean

The ride that proceeded the movie franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean is a great family-friendly ride with just enough thrills to keep the adults entertained. Don’t forget to smile.

Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop

As if life wasn’t scary enough, brace yourself for a thrilling 82-foot drop above a toy-army base full of lookout towers and over-sized green toy soldiers.


Crush’s Coaster

With no fastpass and a slow loading time, Crush Coaster tends to have a long queue at any time of day but the ride is worth it. Race crush through the East Australian Current and head out on all-new adventures in your own turtle-wagon for 2.

Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril—Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril

Based on the Indiana Jones films, guests are taken on an adventure riding in a mining train through a lost temple. This is nothing like Indiana Jones at Walt Disney World.


Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast

Help Buzz Lightyear complete his mission by blasting the enemies of the Galactic Alliance. There are two people per car, just in case you were wondering who had better aim.

Alice’s Curious Labyrinth

Park your strollers and keep the little ones close by cause this could take a while. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth ends at the Queen of Hearts’ castle and an amazing view of Fantasyland.

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain

The reimagined Space Mountain takes you into hyperspace, then drops you square in the middle of a space battle between good and evil. This ride is fast!

Cars Quatre Rous Rallye

Last but not least, Cars Race Rally! With room for 4, find your favorite Cars’ character and let the magic happen. The vehicles automatically change from one spinning turntable to the next while interweaving and switching places with the other vehicles so you don’t have to worry about little ones at the controls.

Disneyland Paris Ride Height Restrictions

There are ride height restrictions on some of these attractions, this is for the safety of the rider and can not be adjusted because your child is “so close” or “really wants to ride it”. We ask that all guests respect the rules (as well as the Cast Members enforcing them) and check out the height limits before making any hard plans for the day. Also, don’t forget to check out What is Babyswitch and how do we use it?

Where can I see Disneyland Paris ride closures?

The official Disneyland Paris app is full of helpful information, including ride closures. This is great for up to the minute updates when a ride goes down during the day for mechanical failure or other surprise reasons.

But, Disneyland Paris also has a handy website for all of this as well. Current and scheduled upcoming refurbishments can be found here.

What rides are open during extra magic hours at Disneyland Paris?

Extra Magic Time at Disneyland Paris is an exclusive extra time for some of the most popular attractions.

Only those staying at a Disneyland Paris owned hotel, or guests with Magic Plus or Infinity Annual Pass, whether you’re staying in a Disney Hotel or not, have access to this special time.
