Disneyland Paris 2014 // Discoveryland


It seems that the day we decided to hit Discoveryland was the day the rains came and the park cleared out alot! I'm telling you that because some of these photos seem very gloomy and that is why but I assure you that it didn't effect our mood at all. :)

This land is unfortunately my least favorite and that's hard to say because I love it too but without a whole lot of things to do the main attraction for this land to most people is a ride that I just can't do haha! That ride is Space Mountain. You may remember it being on my to ride hitlist, as I hoped to conquer all the 'must dos' of DLP, though upon further inspection (or actually hearing the people scream as the ride was in motion) I changed my mind and decided it wasn't for me after all!






Conversely however, one of my all time favorite rides at Disneyland is here, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast!! I dunno how anyone couldn't like it - it's so interactive and fun that you just wanna join the end of the queue again when it's finished. Not to mention the hilarious photos you get taken during it with super concentration faces. It's one of those ones that really is for everyone.

...Just like Autopia! Always overlooked by me, this year saw my first and only go at this attraction and it was fabulous fun, I only wish it was a little longer 'cause it is a nice little relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the park, that I saw alot of Dads get to enjoy with their kiddies.
It would be just like the thing that as we're about to pull away our car conks it! Did you know that the cars are ran by just a little petrol motor like you'd find on a lawnmower? The lady just yanked the cord and we were on our way again!




'Les Mystères du Nautilus (French for "The Mysteries of the Nautilus") is a walkthrough attraction at Disneyland Paris in France. It is an updated version of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea walkthrough attraction that was at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA in the early 1950s, based upon the film of the same name. This attraction takes guests throughout the various rooms of Captain Nemo's submarine, especially those seen in the film.' [Taken from Wikipedia]

Nautilus never seems busy and for that reason, alongside it's museum esc feel, I really enjoy it! Just now while writing this it has clicked how much of a chilled land Discoverland really is for me and I'm now regretting saying that it's my least favorite...haha

I can't end this post without giving a quick mention to Star Tours aswell. I'm in no way a fan of Star Wars but this simulator is awesome and no trip is complete for me without going on it at least once! Even the queuing system is fun!


I wanted to leave you with one of Disney's cutest couples! <3 (Spot the rain drops all over Eve?!)
So what do you think of Discoverland? Any of these rides in your top favorites from DLP?
