Categories: Disney Parks & Activities, Theme Parks, Water & Amusement Parks
The second Disney theme park at this Paris location, Walt Disney Studios Park dedicates its exhibits to show business and film production in Hollywood. The park divides into several "studio lots.” Toon Studio features Disney and Pixar characters such as Crush from “Finding Nemo,” the Genie from “Aladdin,” Lightning McQueen from “Cars,” and Buzz Lightyear and other characters from “Toy Story.” The Backlot brings you through a true-to-life industrial movie backlot, showcasing the thrills of movie making without the hype. The Production Courtyard focuses on the production of Hollywood movies and its mythos, including legendary actors. Here you’ll find Hollywood-inspired street sets and "Place des Stars,” featuring a reproduction of the facilities in a modern-day movie lot.

This is definitely a half-day park and doesn't exactly "feel" like a Disney theme park. When compared to the Disneyland Park just across the plaza, it's definitely lacking in style points. Crush's Coa... read more »

Terribly long queues. In the first 5 hours in the park we had been to one ride (family of 5). 3 rides broke while we were waiting in the lines after several minutes waiting. Many times we had to dodge several people to take one of our kids to the bathroom as we were in a line for 90 min or longer. Many rides closed for refurbishment. There are people smoking everywhere and in one of the lines there were people smoking marijuana next to us. It is not worth the money while there is all this refurbishment going on. Lastly, the park is not very tidy. You often find trash on the floor, spider webs on lampshades and many attractions with faded or peeling off paint. Suggestion for Disney: get sone short movies for people to watch while in the line. Get some characters to come around if lines are taking longer than an hour. That will alleviate a lot the long waits. If a ride breaks share info in different languages. Only once we got an explanation in English, all the other times was in French only. Put benches for people to sit. There were several dads and moms holding their kids standing in the lines. I can share more, but enough for now.
Better than Disney Park but few attractions were closed. It has less attractions than Disney Park but some of them are really good. The whole family can't miss Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular and Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic. Adults and older children can't miss The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Crush's Coaster was meant to be for smaller children but it's too fast for them and it's dark in there. Ratatouille is OK but not good enough for more than one go. It also made me car-sick and i spoke to few people who said the same thing.
Loved our day being at Walt Disney Studios. This was completely different experience than being at Disneyland Park, more about knowing how they do their movies, get the pieces together to make the movie. The tram ride was fantastic. We also enjoyed the car/motorcycle stunts show. They do something called FastPass, you can get FastPass for an attraction from FastPass machines outside and then you can go back at the time given, you don't have to queue up. Educational stuff for the little ones.
Going to a Disney theme park is not cheap, but in my multiple past experiences in LA and Tokyo, you get what you pay for - a seamless experience, with the most magical of atmospheres set up by staff who seem to genuinely love their job. It seems that the Disney Magic has been totally lost on Paris Walt Disney Studios Park. We opted to forgo the original Disney park today as three of the major rides were closed (thunder mountain, space mountain, and star tours) and just bought tickets to the newer Studios park. Upon arriving, we noticed that the usual happy atmosphere of Disney parks was missing. It was lightly raining, but it had more to do with the dirty rides, the unhappy staff, the closed refreshment stands, the lack of Disney characters and the filthy toilets (one with a sanitary bin overflowing onto the floor!!!). We immediately queued for the Rock n' Rollercoaster where after 30mins we were told the ride was temporarily closed due to technical difficulties - not a good start. We then went to the RC racer ride, which again was closed due to technical issues. Getting a bit fed up, we lined up for the kiddie slinky ride next door, where the four of us were admitted to the ride before the sullen staff realised that they had let too many people through, so two of us had to leave and go to the back of the line before the ride started. Then the fast-pass machines across the parks crashed (this lasted the entire day)!! We were unable to line up for the crush's coaster due to MORE technical difficulties. We managed to get onto the Rock n' Rollercoaster and the RC racer rides later on and admittedly they were a lot of fun. The end of our day was spent waiting in line for Crush's coaster which continuously broke down, making us wait in silence while they turned the power off to reboot the ride. No attempt was made to entertain us or let us know what was going on while we waited for hours in the queue. Tired and totally disillusioned, we packed it in for the day. Paris Walt Disney Studios is an embarrassment to the Disney Franchise. Our experience today would be laughable if you didn't take into account how much money we paid for it.
You cant go wrong hitting this park, it wasn't as big as some of the other Disney parks but it was well worth the trip and still very magical. as always the staff at the park are friendly and helpful and though we didnt speak French we managed fine and hit all the rides at both sections of the Disney park in a day,
