My top 3 rides at Disneyland Paris

If you follow me on any form of social media, you'll likely know I visited Disneyland Paris this week - and I had an absolute ball. We only met one character (Rafiki) because we decided to dedicate our time to the rides around the park; there's honestly something for everyone in terms of rides and, if you plan it right/get really lucky, you can fit loads in! I thought I'd just share my top 3 rides, in case you don't end up having much time to ride them...

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain // I've fallen in love with rollercoasters all over again after this trip, and I bloody love Star Wars - so this one is just perfect. It's big, fast, and very very loud; you feel like you go upside down, but it's actually just the way they move the graphics that surround you. It's such a thrill, though, and one I'd definitely go on again & again - we did it 3 times, so it must have been good. This one is in the Discoveryland section of the Disneyland Park, you have to be 1.2m tall and you can use your fast pass and/or go as a single rider.

Ratatouille: The Adventure // when I was eight and we went to Disney in Florida, my mum made us queue for hours for the 4D Shrek ride which was, in all honesty, not worth the wait. This one, however, would have been - it had long queues all day but by the time we got there it was only 15 mins if you went as a single rider, which we decided to. We ended up in the same carriage (rat shaped, obv) anyway, so it all worked out great. This whole ride is so immersive - you basically are one of the rats, and everything around you is huge; you have to wear 3D glasses and there's a story played out on screen, with added effects such as heat as you "get thrown under the oven" and amazing smells as you get deeper into "the kitchen". This one is perfect if you a) love Ratatouille or b) hate rollercoasters or c) love special effects - really, I think most people will love it and I can see why it's one of Paris' most popular rides! This one is in the Toon Studio area of the Walt Disney Studios Park, any height/age can ride and you can go as a single rider/use your fast pass.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror // this is the ride we were the most excited for and as such, we were prepared to queue for 55 minutes to go on it - and it was so worth it. In terms of theme and decor, this is one of the best: the attention to detail both outside and inside, throughout the queue as well as during the ride itself, is just exquisite. It has a whole storyline and then you're sat in a lift getting chucked up and down thirteen floors and it's just SO MUCH FUN. We managed to do this one twice and a random Spanish girl kept grabbing my hand in shock the second time. Would highly recommend. This one's located in the Production Courtyard area of the Walt Disney Studios Park, you have to be 1.2m tall and you can use your fast pass for it.

So there's my top 3 rides at DLP - if you've been, what are your faves?!
