Disneyland Paris- Part 2

Walt Disney Studios Park is part of Disneyland Paris and is probably most famous for the Moteurs...Action! Stunt Show Spectacular, where the audience sits back and watches an outdoor car performance of stunt maneuvers including driving backwards at high speeds and flying over a canal of fire.  My kids also love the Stitch Live show, much like Turtle Time with Crush at Disneyland California.  It's amazing how the technology is available to let the kids interact with an animated character in such a natural way. 

We rode the Flying Carpets over Agrabah...

My 4 year old's jaw dropped when she saw this giant Buzz Lightyear statue.  It was the gateway into an area that was new to us called the Toy Story Playland.  It was super cute!

The RC Racer half-pipe rollercoaster had my older two kids giggling and screaming with delight:

Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop:

The Aerosmith Rock 'n' Rollercoaster is one of my favorite rides in the Walt Disney Studios Park.  It looks like you are loading into a stretch limousine and then you are off on the rollercoaster into a Aerosmith concert turned into a ride, with lights flashing and smoke machines blowing.  I really like that there are more than one Aerosmith songs used on the ride.  My husband and I have to take turns on the ride because our youngest is too little for everyone to ride together and we each heard different songs.

Waiting for the baby swap :)

My kids' favorite ride is the Crush Coaster.  It is so fun!  You sit with two facing forward and two facing back, and in the coarse of the ride the direction changes and the positions are reversed and the front-facing two become the rear-facing two.  It's a lot of twisting!


On one of our times riding the attraction broke down and we had to be evacuated out of the ride.  It's amazing how different the ride feels without the lighting and sound elements.  This is one of the fun parts, where the jellyfish are everywhere.  Even though I know there is "magic" happening to create these effects, it was still funny to see that there were only a few jellyfish needed with a few mirrors to create that effect!

While the "big kids" ride the Crush Coaster, one of us adults take our little one over to the Cars Race Rally:

We ate lunch at the front of the park inside the hanger you see from the entrance.  It's themed like old time Hollywood, and while we were there a band played big band music.

Good and fast:
