At Disneyland Paris (DLP), many attractions are similar to those at Disney’s U.S. parks, but with a “French twist.” Look at the DLP photos below and guess what the equivalent attraction is at Disneyland in California. Answers are at the bottom of this post (no peeking!).
Hint: This intergalactic attraction is located in “Discoveryland” at Disneyland Paris (Bonus: Can you name the equivalent land at Disneyland California?)
Hint: Kids of all ages go round and round on beautiful bejeweled horses on this Fantasyland ride
Hint: If you’re “jonesing” for a loop-de-loop and corkscrew rollercoaster, this is an adventure for you!
Hint: in California, Disneyland has re-released this ride with a 3-D makeover, which makes the “classic” version of this ride at Disneyland Paris a fun “blast from the past”!
Hint: If Billy Hill played this Disneyland Paris venue his band would be called “The Montagnards”
Hint: Beware! The crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake at this Disneyland Paris attraction.
Hint: Disneyland Paris offers this “petit” riverboat experience, as well as a chance to sail on her big brother, which is a twin of Disneyland’s attraction on the Rivers of America. What’s the twin attraction?
Hint: This treetop cabana at Disneyland Paris is based on a classic Disney feature film released in 1960. Disneyland’s version had a makeover in 1999 resulting in a whole new theme. Can you name both Disneyland attractions?
Hint: You can eat at this restaurant for about $33 a person, but you might just have to fly to Paris for this dining experience honoring Walt Disney…

Walt’s is a fine-dining restaurant that is open to the public and is located on the second level of DLP’s Main Street USA buildings, offering high-end food and parade viewing from your table. (I’ll be taking you inside Walt’s in my next Disneyland Paris post, stay tuned Disney Blog readers!)
