Gentle ridesTots love to get cuddles and autographs from Mickey, Minnie and co, who hang out around Main Street in the mornings. The candy-pink Sleeping Beauty's Castle rises above storybook Fantasyland, where big-eared Dumbo the Elephant flies and costumed dolls sing on It's a Small World. Kids enjoy getting splashed on the swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean ride and zapping robots on Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast.
Big thrillsUse your Fastpass or ride during parade times to beat the queues on Disneyland Paris holidays. Thrill-seekers rattle around canyon-like Big Thunder Mountain in Frontierland, and hurtle around loops on Adventureland's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril. The ultimate scream is being rocketed to the moon on Space Mountain Mission 2. Feel your stomach drop on the 13-floor Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, blasting from 0-60mph in three seconds, at Walt Disney Studios.
Parades and showsDonald Duck, Goofy and a host of other Disney characters groove and twirl on Minnie's Party Train and at the afternoon's must-see Disney's Once Upon a Dream Parade. Catch the golden-oldie Stars 'n' Cars parade and gravity-defying jumps at the Stunt Show Spectacular in the Hollywood-inspired Walt Disney Studios. Gorillas and trapeze artists swing at the Chaparral Theatre's Tarzan Encounter. In summer, see the twinkling Fantillusion Parade where fireworks illuminate Sleeping Beauty's Castle before returning to your hotel at Disneyland Paris.
