Smoke and Slumber

Underneath Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant--Disneyland Paris' Sleeping Beauty Castle--there's an eerie lair where guests can encounter an audio-animatronic dragon chained to rock, illuminated in an otherworldly green and often blissfully slumbering away.  It's a fearsome looking beast, and its whole body isn't exactly obvious when one first encounters it.  But sometimes, it will wake up and snort and smoke and let out a few nerve-wracking roars before returning to its rest.  This walk-through attraction is kind of like a little surprise, because though it's listed on the park's attraction list, it's also kind of a secluded sight.  But guests would be remiss to skip this little highlight of the park.  There's nothing like this in any other Magic Kingdom.  So go watch the dragon sleep.  It's the one time watching something sleep isn't creepy!

The sleeping dragon under Disneyland Paris' Sleeping Beauty Castle looks harmless when it's snoozing. Just don't catch it waking up!
