So in one day you will probably cover all good rides of one park. That was my goal as I shuffled through the crowds in order to make the most of my Disneyland Paris experience.
Here are some of my favorite Disney rides so if you have less time, make way to these first and I can guarantee you will have a great time. It is based around the popular flick Indiana Jones and takes you on a high speed train ride.
There are lot of fast turns and dips as you zoom past jungles and temples. Crush's Coaster -- This one was by far one of my very favorites.
You see its hard to choose but I am trying. I was so amazed by the movie "Finding Nemo" and this ride is based around the turtle in the movie called Crush. The visual experience is simply amazing and your cart will swirl around moving from one place to another in jiffy. Space Mountain, Mission 2 -- Aha, here will go -- Another big thrill ride from Disneyland Paris and surely one of the best for adrenaline junkies, like yours truly.
You get the entire out of the world experience when you set off in outer space in a rocket -- Yes, that's right -- a rocket. Ever imagined how you would feel if you are sitting tight in a rocket set off to hit outer space at the speed of light? Well, this is the exact experience which you will get not at the speed of light, though.
The ride is set in dark and the light and sound effects add to its charm. Phantom Manor -- In the mood for ghoosebumps? Well, thenthis is your attraction. It is an eerie huge manor decorated amazingly with well, creepy stuff!
The setting and live actors are great and you are literally transformed from stepping into a dining room to a room of horrors. It's not that scary but the setup is quite amazing.
Tower of Terror -- Okay this is not for the faint hearted. I could hear people screaming from way outside, so, I decided to keep this ride for the very end -- You know in case I get sick and have to be rushed home. It was a wrong decision -- When I went once, I just "had" to go again. I did this ride twice. That's how much I loved it. The whole setting is simply extraordinary. You enter a hotel, which seems abandoned with the cobwebs and stains everywhere.
Then, a concierge comes to greet you live actor who will narrate a chilling tale. Everything adds to the thrill and tension and you can feel the ghoosebumps as you rise high to the 13th story in a lift.

On the technical side, the roller coaster circuit was being laid out with the help of early ride engineering computer software. Tony Baxter and his team, after all, wanted anything but a smooth ride; they wanted the trains to shake and rattle as they rushed along the spiraling track, heightening the excitement of the runaway train ride.
To provide this thrill ride with context, another Imagineer joined the team: John Patrick, or Pat, Burke. A show set designer for Walt Disney Imagineering, Pat would put his intimate knowledge of the American Southwest and its lore to good use when providing the attraction with a detailed back-story and dozens of antique props, in order to craft a truly convincing relationship between the ride and its setting.

Pat Burke scouted auctions, old abandoned mines, flea markets and real ghost towns across the West to furnish the ride and its queue line with authentic props and machinery. Items included a giant cogwheel, an stamp mill, steam engines and ore carts. One particular detail which would gain more prominence in subsequent versions of the attraction has an interesting history as well, as Pat shares.
