It’s Friday and that means one thing…time for another Virtual Disney trip. We’ve been exploring Disneyland Paris the past couple weeks. After checking out Frontierland last week, it’s time to head next door to Adventureland this week. There’s not as much to explore in Adventureland. So, I had thought about adding Fantasyland to this report. However, there is entirely too much in Fantasyland. So, next Friday, we’ll check out Fantasyland.
This video seems like a good way to start. After all, it walks us from Frontierland all the way through Adventureland. I love this video. Again, I’m blown away by the space Disneyland Paris has! It makes Adventureland so much fun!
First up is the most thrilling attraction in Adventureland...Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril. This ride is very different from the Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye at Disneyland California. It’s a full-fledged roller coaster. So, it’s an outdoor attraction. So, the queue line is way more in the outdoors. I still prefer the queue line at Disneyland California. However, this ride looks like it’s pretty cool on it own.
After riding a roller coaster, I though we’d slow it down with this walk through attraction. La Cabane des Robinson is the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House. This was replaced at Disneyland California with the Tarzan Tree house. Again, with this attraction, it’s clear how much more space Disneyland Paris has. This tree house is massive! If I were visiting in real life, I think I’d have to check it out just for the amazing views of Disneyland Paris!
Adventure Isle is another walk through attraction full of caves and things to explore. It reminds me a little of what it was like to explore Tom Sawyer’s Island at Disneyland California as a child. Only, the size of the caves and the amount of places to explore is much more massive.
After all that walking, let’s take a break for some food. The Agrabah Cafe looks like a fun place to dine. It’s a buffet style restaurant. As you might expect, the details and theming of this restaurant are pretty cool!
Le Passage Enchanté d’Aladdin is another walk through attraction. This one kind of reminds me of the walk through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland California. It’s not terribly thrilling. However, if you’re a fan of Aladdin, it’s probably worth checking out.
The Blue Lagoon Restaurant is to Disneyland Paris what the Blue Bayou is to Disneyland California. Although, the theming is very different. I kind of like the look of this place and the menu looks like a place I’d want to eat if I were to visit in real life.
We’ll close out this virtual trip with Pirates of the Caribbean. I’ve been looking forward to checking this ride out because it’s my favorite attraction at Disneyland California. While I like this version more than the version they have at the Magic Kingdom, I think I still prefer the Disneyland California version. This version does have some really cool stuff to it. For example, this is the only version of Pirates of the Caribbean that does not have Jack Sparrow in it. I love the queue line and some of the special effects that they employ in this attraction. However, I prefer the story line and the way it’s told in California better.
As I’ve done in the past with dark rides, I’m including an extra video of this attraction that has some night-vision recording. I include it so you can see a little more of what’s going on in the darkness. What do you think? Which version of Pirates of the Caribbean do you prefer?
That’s all for now. I know that this Virtual trip was a short one. Next week, we’ll be visiting Fantasyland! Have a magical weekend everyone!
