    Disneyland Paris " from above " - Aerial Pictures by Jolly Roger

    Disneyland Paris " from above " - Aerial Pictures by Jolly Roger



    Since i began Disney and more three years and a half ago i've posted hundred of pictures of Disneyland Paris - whether they were shot during Halloween, Christmas, Summer season and even under "ice and snow". Not to mention great panoramic pictures. But there is one kind of pictures that i've never posted, and it's aerial shots of the parks and resort. I remember posting pictures shot from the Disney Village balloon but you can't get great aerial shots of the park from the balloon.

    Today, thanks to "Jolly Roger", you will see Disneyland Paris as you have never seen it before. Just like you and me Jolly Roger is a big DLP fan but he is also something that we are not: he is a plane pilot. Small planes. And when the weather and winds are right for a safe flight Jolly Roger takes a plane and his camera and, flying over the resort, he is shooting great aerial pictures of Disneyland Paris "from above".

    The pictures you will see today are a kind of "best-of" of the pictures shot by Jolly Roger during the last years. They were shot at different time whether it was during winter or summer season but they are fascinating as they reveal the resort on a totally different angle than the one you usually see when you visit the parks. Everyone ready for a flight? Then, fasten seat belts and lift off!

    On the first picture below Jolly Roger in his plane is approaching the resort. On the top: DLP Magic Kingdom.



    Below, the Disneyland Hotel at the entrance of the park. Don't forget to click on each picture to see them in larger scale.



    On this next picture, an aerial shot of Town Square.



    Let's fly over Frontierland with a great view of Big Thunder and the Rivers of the Far-West.



    Same shooting angle, but at Autumn, with Phantom Manor and Town Square in the background.



    Jolly Roger's new shot of Cottonwood Creek Ranch in the back of Frontierland with the Cowboy Cookout Barbecue and Critter Corral. Amazing how the trees and other vegetation have filled in so handsomely around the architectural elements and truly created Cottonwood Creek.



    A winter shot of "Thunder Mesa".



    Another shot of Frontierland with the Walt Disney Studios on the top. You'll note how close WDS Toon Studio is from Frontierland, something you can't guess when you're in the parks.



    Let's fly now over Adventureland! This first picture shows the entrance of the land, Adventureland Bazaar and Swiss Robinson Tree.



    This next one is showing the African part, Swiss Robinson Tree and Adventure Isle with Captain Hook ship and Skull Rock.



    Two pictures shot from different angles of the Indiana Jones temple.





    Let's move to Fantasyland with this first picture showing Alice's Curious Labyrinth and the Mad Hatter tea cups.



    On this next one, Story Book Land and Casey Jr train.



    Dumbo, Mad Hatter tea cups and le Caroussel de Lancelot, all together on the same shot.



    A last aerial shot of Fantasyland with Discoveryland in the back.



    A closer shot of Discoveryland with Space Mountain.



    Another one, with Autopia and the Orbitron.



    On this next you'll have a better view of the Nautilus. Videopolis theatre building is in the foreground.



    This last Discoveryland picture shows Star Tours and Captain EO entrance.



    It's time to fly over the Walt Disney Studios and this first shot shows the WDS from the back and of course the first park on the left.



    Another picture showing both parks, in the foreground: the train tracks nearby.



    A closer and panoramic shot of the WDS.



    Another view on another angle with WDS entrance on the left and Toon Studio on the right.



    A close shot of Crush's coaster building.



    A great - and new - shot of the WDS with Toy Story Playland and Toon studio on the top, the Stunt show and Reign of Fire decor in the foreground, and of course Tower of Terror, here view from the back.



    In the background of this last aerial shot of the WDS, Lake Disney, the Disney Village and the park hotels.



    A great aerial shot of the hotels located around lake Disney. The New York hotel is in the front, the Newport Bay Club in the back and the Sequoia Lodge on the left.



    This last Jolly Roger shot shows the Disney Village area and the Walt Disney Studios entrance in the back.



    I think we can all thanks Jolly Roger for these fantastic pictures of Disneyland Resort Paris "from above". So, if you enjoyed the flight, don't hesitate to tell him in the comments! Please note that, due to too many spams, all comments have now to be approved by me, so your comment might not appear immediately.


    If you love aerial shots i remind you that you will find in my Disneyland Paris book plenty of gorgeous aerial pictures of the park shot by world known aerial pictures master Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Here below is what you need to know if you want to order a copy of the book.

    Those are amazing photos. I like how it gives you a sense of scale of the parks. See how the Indy coaster looks like it is way off in a corner. They put the queue on the far side, so you'd have to walk all the way around it.

    These are fantastic pictures, thank you so much. It really makes DLP appear to be small even though it is a very large resort. Lol.

    It did make you realise how much the trees have grown when you compare these shots to the air footage when EuroDisney as was first opened.
    Let's put the Walt back in Disney!

    Also lets you get an idea of what room there is for expansion around the parks.

    Definitely room in Adventureland for the Indiana Jones Adventure!

    Rafts? I don't know, I've never been but that's what I'm guessing.

    EDIT: I just checked Wikipedia. It says that you actually board the train on mainland but it travels through tunnels under the river to the mountain.

    No three new lands outside the berm for Disneyland park. The carnival next door seems to be too close.

    Amazing photos! Too many things to point out, one I will mention is that huge patch of concreted wasted space in WDS. Thats just screaming for some decent attractions!

    There's one tunner underneath the lake like any other Big Thunder and a final tunnel which makes Big Thunder very unique compare to the other parks .

    These are honestly incredible! I've never been to DLP, but it's definitely a dream of mine to visit! The picture of just the Disneyland Hotel almost looks like a miniature model lol. Thank you so much for sharing!

    My daughter was there today. She sent me a text message declaring DLP 1000 times better than DL in Anaheim. Very excited to see it. Sounds like she had an amazing time. Now, I'm going to have to go! I'm jealous.
