La Tanière du Dragon
(The Dragons Dungeon)
|At A Glance
||Dark walkthrough cavern containing
audioanimatronic dragon. Some good possibilities for amusing
photos posed in front of the beastie.
Taniere du Dragon (The Dragon's Dungeon) is hidden away to the
left of Sleeping Beauty's Castle, and could be easily missed.
There are two entrances, the first is via a walkway
that is below, and to the left of the main entrance to the castle,which
leads to the walkthrough cavern with the Dragon's pool in. The
second entrance is inside the castle itself, again through a door
on the left hand wall, which leads to an elevated viewing gallery
overlooking the Dragon's sleeping area. The two entrances are
linked by a flight of stairs.
The attraction is a dark walkthrough style cavern,
containing a largish pool of water in which a slumbering Dragon
lays, its enormous head facing you as you walk through, and swaying
from side to side occasionally (The Dragon is a large example
of Disney's audioanimatronics).
Whilst not exactly a thrilling attraction, it forms
part of the attractions centered around Sleeping Beauty's Castle,
and is worth visiting, even if only to think about the technology
hidden under the Dragon's skin.
The entrance to the left of the main castle entrance
is wheelchair friendly, as is the entrance from inside the castle
itself, but the two are linked by a flight of stairs, so it's
not possible to easily move a wheelchair or ECV from one entrance
to the other.
Note, young children could possibly find the attraction
a little frightening so a little sensible discretion is advisable
if you're travelling with very young children.
