Presentation of the attraction

Sleeping Beauty Castle is the landmark and focal point of Disneyland Paris. This magnificent structure is the first thing visitors see when they enter the park, and serves as the gateway to the magical world of Fantasyland.

The castle at Disneyland Paris is unique among Disney parks worldwide. Its design is inspired by various European castles and fairytale imagery, creating a fusion of reality and fantasy that is both romantic and enchanting. With its soaring towers, vivid blue spires, pink stone walls and curling golden vines, Sleeping Beauty Castle looks like something out of a dream.

But the castle offers more than just a magnificent view. Inside, visitors can explore La Galerie de la Belle au Bois Dormant, an exhibition that tells the story of Sleeping Beauty through a series of tapestries, stained-glass windows and sculptures. Beneath the castle, visitors will find La Tanière du Dragon, a dark cave housing a life-size animatronic dragon. To find out more about the castle, read about its history and secrets.
