Once you enter the Sleeping Beauty's impressive castle, go upstairs, and walk around to rediscover the ever fascinating story of princess Aurora, which has been told ever since 1993, in a very unusual way...
Indeed, the famous romance is told through gorgeous stained-glass windows, delicate silk tapestries, fountains and statues. This attraction enables you to see Walt Disney's masterpiece like you've never seen it before, so make sure you don't miss this stop !
La Tanière Du Dragon
A secret hides under the hill : in a dark cave filled with smoke, lies an impressive, 22 meters long dragon ! You can access this cave both from outside and from Merlin's shop.
A popular legend says that this dragon is Maleficient, the famous villain from Sleeping Beauty, but it is actually Merlin's dragon ! Moreover, it happens to be the biggest audio-animatronic character in Disneyland Paris !
If you step outside the Castle of Sleeping Beauty, you will find yourself in Fantasyland. The Castle's courtyard is not just a regular main square : Merlin's famous sword, Excalibur, stands proudly in its center ! We dare you to try and pull it from its rock !
This particular place is full of surprises. During Halloween, an impressive dragon-shaped thorn bush can be admired there. Sometimes, Merlin himself knights children there, pulling Excalibur from its rock to do so !
Blanche-Neige Et Les Sept Nains
Snow-White and the Seven Dwarves is Walt Disney's iconic masterpiece. Relive the famous story in this dark ride, an artificially lit track divided in scenes !

Les Voyages De Pinocchio
Just like « Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains » (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves), Les Voyages de Pinocchio (Pinocchio's Journey) is a dark ride that throws you inside the famous puppet's universe. Thanks to Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy, he will become a real boy !

Le Carrousel De Lancelot
Once you've effortlessly lifted the sword in Castle Courtyard, be ready to join Lancelot and the other Knights of the Round Table for a fun adventure on this beautiful merry-go-round !

Sit on Dumbo, the famous flying elephant, and be ready for an unforgettable adventure ! It's not everyday that you get to sit on Dumbo's back after all ! So don't hesitate, your bravery will be rewarded with an amazing view on Fantasyland !
This is one of the most famous attractions in all of the Disney parks. In Paris, there are 16 elephants, unlike California and Tokyo, where there are only 10. The nice waiting line is a reference to a circus.
Disneyland RailRoad - Fantasyland Station
Near « Meet Mickey Mouse » and Alice's Labyrinth, you can find Fantasyland's train station. Climb aboard one of the four trains that go around the whole park and discover Fantasyland from a unique point of view !

Mad Hatter's Tea Cups
Singing « A very merry unbirthday to you ! » is probably the best way to describe this attraction, inspired by the famous tea sharing scene in Alice in Wonderland ! The Mad Hatter is impatiently waiting for you under the lanterns !
Once you're done celebrating your unbirthday, take some time to stroll around the attraction, and you may be lucky enough to meet some characters from Wonderland ! And even if you don't, at least take a good look at the beautifully shaped trees around it !
Alice's Curious Labyrinth
There are many references to Alice's world in this labyrinth. Don't get lost, or your might lose your head too....but, even though the Queen of Hearts is scary, at least her castle has an amazing view on Fantasyland !

Casey Jr. Le Petit Train Du Cirque
