Tip-toe into the pitch-black lair beneath the Castle to discover a very special fairytale creature. Amongst the craggy rocks and dripping water lies a defeated dragon, chained and sleeping - but easily awoken!
This is one fantastical legend that isn't looking for a happily ever after. A huge, monstrous Audio-Animatronic like none you've ever seen before, masterfully hidden under the pleasant green hill to the left of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant.
One of the most spectacular examples of why Disneyland Park is far above your average theme park, La Tanière du Dragon has no ride vehicles, no queue; It was designed and constructed simply for pure immersion into the elaborate, fairytale story surrounding it.
You step inside the intimate cavern from one of three entrances and become immersed in the echoes and rumblings, the exasperated growls of the dragon and the awesome, incomprehensible rockwork, dimly lit by dragon-shaped lamps in dramatic colours.
A worthy and equally unmissable partner to La Galerie de la Belle au Bois Dormant above, this is also entirely unique to Disneyland Paris.
