Walt Disney Studios in Paris

To all who enter this studio of dreams...welcome. Walt Disney Studios is dedicated to our timeless fascination and affection for cinema and television. Here we celebrate the art and the artistry of storytellers from Europe and around the world who create magic. May this special place stir our own memories of the past, and our dreams of the future.

Walt Disney Studios opened 10 years after Disneyland Paris, and only one year after California Adventure. While it has a similar feel to California Adventure, it is completely it's own unique park.

We rushed to the restuarunt to make it to our reservation we had made months in advance. We waiting patiently in the small waiting room until our name was called. Then we were escorted by a host down a long hallway, then turned a corner and were lead into the most magical dining room I have ever witnessed.

In typical Disney style, every single detail of this restaurant was incredibly magical. It is designed to shrink all it's guests down to the size of Remy and his little rat friends. 

After eye guzzeling all the whimsical and adorable details, it was time to sit down and focus on ordering. The menu has a number of delicious offerings, all entrees come as a three course meal, so make sure you are hungry if you dine here!

Every dish comes with a side of Remy's culinary masterpiece, Ratattouille!

After our delightful lunch, mom and I rode the Ratitouille ride, dad sat this one out since it isn't recommended for people who get motion sickness. 

This ride is so adorable. We were all given 3D glasses and were escorted into cute, little rat shaped cars. our first stop was at a ginormous screen where we watched a 4D part of the ride. This part of the ride is very similar to Star Tours

After scampering through the kitchen, avoiding all the angry chefs, our little rat cars moved us into the freezer, this part of the ride is similar to a Fantasyland type ride, where you move through a space that tells part of the story.

After a wild and crazy adventure, we ended up at Remy's own restaurant that we had just dined at! This ride was super fun and unique, I can't think of a ride that is anything like it.

Right next door to Bistro Chez Remy is the very imaginative Toy Story Playground. We walked through it to get the The Tower of Terror.

The Tower of Terror is one of my favorite rides!!!! Mom and Dad didn't have any interest in riding it, so I went alone. It is pretty much the same as the California version with slight differences in the decor of the queue area.

I am in the middle on the top row, only my head is visible haha.

And that is all the time we spent in Walt Disney Studios. It's a rather small park, there are a few other areas and rides that we didn't have time to explore. While this is a fun park, I wanted to get back to Disneyland to make sure we covered as much ground at that park as possible!

Next up Fantasyland and a Paris Disney parade!
