Presentation of the attraction

Les Mystères du Nautilus is a fascinating attraction located in Discoveryland at Disneyland Paris. This immersive attraction lets visitors explore a detailed replica of Jules Verne’s famous submarine, the Nautilus, from the novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.

Upon entering the submarine, visitors are transported into the science-fiction world of Jules Verne. The journey through the Nautilus is divided into several zones, including the grand salon with its famous porthole overlooking the mysterious depths of the sea, Captain Nemo’s cabin with all its navigational instruments, the crew quarters and the engine room.

The highlight of the attraction is an encounter with deep-sea creatures such as turtles, dolphins and sharks that come to meet the submarine, a scene that plays out through the portholes of the large saloon. The special effects used for this scene make for a very realistic and captivating experience.
