Welcome to the Theme Park Investigator Walt Disney Studios Paris Trip Report! You can check out our Disneyland Park Trip Report here (with links to all five parts). We visited over four days, and were pleasantly surprised by this little Park, after reading so much criticism of it over the years (including our own). However, there were certainly parts that need improvement. Check it over 100 photos from our Walt Disney Studios Paris trip below, and don’t forget to check out our Ratatouille construction update!
It may have been a gloomy day, but the entrance area of the Park is one of its strong points.
The Earful Tower isn’t as tall as the nearby Eiffel Tower, but it’s very Disney-esque.
The Cinemagique theatre is huge, and this show is one of the Park’s gems.
Some nice theming near Rock and Roller Coaster, but the rest of this backlot area is pretty sparse.
The Rock and Roller Coaster avec Aerosmith facade is nowhere near as impressive as the Disney Hollywood Studios version. However, the ride itself is better, with an impressive synchronized light show.
Moteurs Action Stunt Show Spectacular has some impressive effects, and the actors were great.
Bad maintenance on some of the show’s facades.

Armageddon Les Effets Speciaux was one of our favourite attractions at Walt Disney Studios Paris. Whilst based on an aging (and not very good) property, the actual show is awesome, and we’ve never seen as many terrified people in one place before!

This sign over at the Tower of Terror is in need of some help. The ride’s theme can’t justify fading work like this.
Walt Disney Studios Paris’ Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a fun version of the attraction, and the cast members were awesome. It also wins the award for hottest male cast members!
Flying Carpets Over Agrabah drew some sizeable queues throughout the day, but we don’t see how it can justify being a Fastpass attraction.
Crush’s Coaster has a nice little outdoor portion before you enter the main part of the attraction.
It doesn’t have the best theming we’ve ever seen, but Crush’s Coaster looks pretty nice.
It’s hardly Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Park is it?
Buzz Lightyear guards the entry to Toy Story Playland.
RC Racer is a very short but cool little attraction.
Nice theming in the queue for RC Racer.
Slinky Dog Zig Zag Spin is a nicely themed ride.
Toy Soldier Parachute Drop as evening sets in.

It’s no Cars Land, but there is some fairly nice theming over at Cars Quatre Roues Rallye.
A fairly unremarkable Monster Inc Meet and Greet and Photo Op.
Mickey stands at the entrance to Toon Studio.
The facades leading up to the Backlot Tour are pretty disappointing in comparison to Disney Hollywood Studios.
Studio One, the Park’s ‘Main Street’, isn’t very impressive. But it’s not terrible either.
Where’s the water?
Crush’s Coaster queue spilling out into Toon Studio.
The queues for the Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic were ridiculous, never dipping below 40 minutes whilst we were there and getting as high as 80 at one point. Only two trams were running, one with only five cars used and the other with four. Cast members were profusely apologizing. Considering this attraction had a refurbishment recently, this is disappointing.
An unused tram.
Some nice set pieces however.
The entrance plaza really is beautiful.
Stars and Cars Parade!
Cinemagique really is amazing. One of the Park’s real star attractions.
Toy Soldier Parachute Drop easily had the least efficient loading procedure we saw at the Park.
Check out the Single Rider queue! Yikes!
Anyone else have a copyrighted arse?
A huge Frozen poster over Studio One for all to see!
Not so new anymore…
