At Disneyland Paris, we have seen a ton of changes being made as both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios prep for the 30th anniversary celebration, which will take place in 2022.
One of the biggest refurbishments we have seen at Disneyland Park was on Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sleeping beauty Castle was covered in what almost looked to be decorative boxes for a chunk of the year as Disney attempted to refurbish the castle while also making sure that the iconic weenie (as Walt would call it) was not causing too much of an eyesore for Guests. Considering many who vacation at Disney love to take the iconic castle photo, covering up said castle is always a challenge and a race.
At Disneyland Paris, much like Disneyland Resort in California, Guests can walk through the castle and experience an attraction. At Walt Disney World Resort, Guests can only eat in the base of Cinderella Castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table, which is a much more expensive experience.
At Disneyland Paris, the attraction is titled La Tanière Du Dragon and is described as:
Tip-toe through the dark dungeon “La Tanière du Dragon” underneath , where a monstrous prisoner lurks. Once the ruler of the skies, this defeated dragon lies chained against jagged rocks. It may be dozing, but tread carefully, as one false move will lead to a hot, rumbling surprise.

More on Disneyland Paris
At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios as well as their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.
We have recently seen Disney’s Sequoia Lodge reopen while the Disneyland Paris Resort continues to undergo a refurbishment. On top of that, we have seen price increases for pins and stunning snowfalls!
