Fantasyland at Disneyland Paris – what should be on your to-do list?

Fantasyland is a portion of the Disneyland Park. Do you love fairy tales and the classic Disney movies? Then this is the part of Disneyland Paris you should definitely visit! In any case, I recommend that you explore all parts of the two theme parks at your leisure. Especially if you go for several days you will have time for almost everything. Are you still worried that you will miss out on certain things? Then these are the activities in Fantasyland you should definitely put on your to-do list!

1. Peter Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland

Peter Pan’s Flight is perhaps the most popular attraction in Fantasyland. Not surprisingly, who wouldn’t want to fly to Neverland with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell?

It is perhaps one of the most beautiful attractions in all of Disneyland Paris. Ok, a little short, but there’s something magical about flying over London and seeing the cars below you. Children love this attraction and can’t get enough of it.

This may also explain the long queues for this attraction. Make sure you go here right at the beginning of the day or buy a Premier Access for it.

2. Visiting Sleeping Beauty’s Castle

The big, pink castle in Disneyland Park belongs to Sleeping Beauty. This one is not only beautiful as a background on your vacation photos. You can also visit the castle. When you walk through the gate you have a store on the left and right. These are not very large but are fun to take a look at.

Walk a little further and you will see a large staircase on the left. When you walk up here, you will see several stained glass windows all around telling the story of Sleeping Beauty. There is also a balcony from which you have a nice view of Fantasyland.

There is also a staircase leading down. I would skip this one with small children. In fact, under the castle lives a moving dragon that looks quite creepy. The dragon is in a dark cave, which can be even more terrifying for children.

3. Finding the castle of the Queen of Hearts

There is a second castle in Fantasyland, that of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. To get here you have to go through a real maze that is also quite fun for adults. Along the way, you’ll encounter various characters from the movie including the Cheshire Cat and, of course, the red-painted roses.

Just before you reach the castle, you will eventually meet the Queen of Hearts herself. Which – how could it be otherwise – screams for your head to come off.

Then when you’ve reached the castle be sure to take the stairs up for a great view of Disneyland Park. Visit the Alice in Wonderland Maze as early in the day as possible. Otherwise it can get quite crowded, especially in the castle.

4. Visiting the Disney Classics.

The Disney Classics are attractions that you will also find in Disneyland California. There are a number of these attractions in Fantasyland. They are based on the original attractions that have been running even since the 1950s at the first Disney theme park in Anaheim. And these are also attractions in which Walt Disney himself was still involved.

The classics in Fantasyland are:

  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Pinocchio
  • Carousel of Lancelot
  • Mad Tea Party (rotating teacups)
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  • Fairy Tale Boats (Le Pays de contes de Fées)
  • Casey Jr Circus Train
  • Dombo the Flying Elephant
  • It’s a Small World

Another Disney Classic – Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride – was never completed at Disneyland Paris. The building is there, but inside you’ll find a British restaurant (Toad Hall) rather than an attraction.

5. Buying a princess dress

Do you need it? No. But lots of kids walk around Disneyland Paris wearing princess dresses. Prepare for this, because you will definitely be asked if your little ones can have a dress too.

In Fantasyland, you can find the dresses in the store next to the Snow White attraction, when you come out of the castle on the left. The dresses are not cheap and cost on average between 70 and 80 euros. If you don’t want to spend that money, I have a tip for you. Pre-order the dresses at Then they cost only half as much.

Another option you have to buy a dress locally in Val d’Europe at the Primark. These are not as nice as Disney’s and not the same quality. But a lot cheaper. The easiest way to get to this Primark is by car or by taking the bus to the Val d’Europe Hotels. This stops in Disney Village at the parking lot across from Vapiano and Five Guys.

6. Eating Mickey Pizza at Pizzeria Bella Notte

It takes a little searching, but on the outside of Fantasyland is Pizzeria Bella Notte. A counter service restaurant with only Italian dishes on the menu. At this restaurant, you can order a Mickey Pizza. This is a Margherita pizza in the shape of Mickey that you get with a children’s menu.

Kids often love this pizza, and it’s a great idea for lunch for adults, too. You order the pizza as a kids’ menu, including a salad, dessert and drink. Pretty good deal when you compare it to adult menus that average €16.95.

These were the 6 things to put on your to-do list when you visit Fantasyland. Be sure to let me know how it went!
