Euro Disney, or Disneyland Resort Paris, as it now is called, consists of two theme parks: Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Disney Village, an entertainment complex, is adjacent to the two parks. While there are so many things to do in Euro Disney, you may also want to visit Paris, a convenient 35-minute train ride away.

Disneyland Park is divided into four areas: Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Discoveryland, Fantasyland and Frontierland. Main Street U.S.A evokes the charm of an American small town at the turn of the 20th century, when Walt Disney was a boy. For excitement and thrills, head to Adventureland, featuring the "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril" roller coaster. In Discoveryland, you can ride the scream-inducing "Space Mountain: Mission 2" and discover what the future looks like. Fantasyland is where fairy tales come true, especially in Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Finally, ride a runaway train in the "Big Thunder Mountain" roller coaster in Frontier Mountain, where the Wild West comes to life.
Walt Disney Studios Park
The Walt Disney Studios Park has four "cinemagical lots," including Toon Studio, the Front Lot, the Backlot and the Production Courtyard, where visitors discover the magic of movies and television. In Toon Studio, the star attraction is "Crush's Coaster," which opened during Euro Disney's 15th birthday celebration. Visitors board turtle-shaped cars, which hurl them into the underwater world of "Finding Nemo." The Front Lot features Disney Studios 1, where you have front row seats to a movie shoot on a real set, with lights and special effects. Don't miss the "Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular" in the Backlot, where you watch stuntmen driving cars and riding motorbikes act out an exciting chase and fight scene for the cameras. Thrill seekers will love the "Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" in the Production Courtyard. The ride features a 13-story drop in the elevator of the creepy Hollywood Tower Hotel.
Disney Village is Euro Disney's shopping, dining and entertainment centre. Experience the state-of-the-art 3D movie experience at the Imax Theater, which also has a 15-screen multiplex cinema next door. In Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Mickey Mouse and friends take you back in time to the Old West of Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, Sitting Bull and the Rough Riders.
