After surviving the queue at the entrance, our adventure started at Walt Disney Studios Park early in the morning. Fortunately it was not really quite the school holidays and a weekday, so the crowd and waiting time at the rides were not too bad (around 30-50 minutes). Walt Disney Studios Park is a relatively small amusement park which has some great rides such as Crush Coaster.

Once you past security at the entrance, the only way to get inside at Walt Disney Studios Park is to go through Studio 1 which is an interesting place as it is the main walk-through where all the shops and places to eat are, and one of the few sheltered areas in this park.

After making our way through Studio 1, we finally arrived at our destination and this was the view that greeted us!

Once inside Walt Disney Studios Park, we wasted no time in exploring the place and deciding on what we should do.

Crush Coaster was one of the best rides there: based on the cute little turtle in “Finding Nemo”, this ride is based on riding the waves and was an exhilarating ride. This is one of the rides that I enjoyed the most, it is definitely worth the wait for this ride!

For one, I am not really in to horror, but LuttiSparrow & Co. found the Tower of Terror fun. The Tower of Terror is located in a "creepy" and "abandoned" hotel and it is basically a ride consisting of a lift which “drops” down and goes up (and then ‘lunges’ down and repeats the going up and down motion a couple of times); thrown in with a few "scare" tatics. It is supposed to have a creepy or scary feel to it (old hotel, creepy d├ęcor, ghosts and stuff etc… I think you get the idea). So if you like to 'scare' yourself could try this ride.




Besides Crush Coaster and the Tower of Terror, the other rides were not as memorable. And sadly for us the Aerosmith Rock n Roll Roller Coaster was closed that day (well, we were waiting in line eagerly when they announced technical difficulties about 3 times during our wait, so we decided to give up and explore further than waste our time). It would have been a blast if we had managed to sit that ride.

For proper dining options however, Walt Disney Studios Park in this aspect, although the snack stands are much better and plentiful compared to those in Disneyland next door (most of the snack stands in Disneyland were closed that day). Drinks are not cheap, so you might want to bring your own water. For example, a bottle of water costs about 2.70€. It is hot is summer so hydrating yourself is important.

Playland would be great for little kids or those fanatical (or just simply love) anything related to Toystory. I believe we could have visited more places, if not for the fact that we ‘lost’ our aunt a couple of times in the park and had to some spend time ‘finding’ her. ^^

Overall, Walt Disney Studios Park was clean and tidy and the toilets were better kept than the Disneyland Park. It took us about half a day to explore Walt Disney Studios Park before heading to Disneyland Park for our lunch and part two of our Disney adventure. One thing to note is that although there were no smoking signs up, it wasn’t enforced as people in the queue to rides were happily smoking away in both parks.
