The pastel towers and turrets of Sleeping Beauty Castle can be seen from across Chessy. While the neighbourhood is best known as the location of Disneyland Paris, there are some great local sights and attractions to discover. Fast public transport connections make Chessy an ideal base for sightseeing in Paris.
Things to do in Chessy
Disneyland Park will enchant you with its five themed lands inspired by your favourite films and characters. Ride the stomach-flipping Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland and head to Discoveryland to board the Star Wars-themed Hyperspace Mountain coaster. Adventureland brings action-packed franchises like Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean to life.
Visit Walt Disney Studios Park and go behind the scenes of the iconic entertainment company. You’ll love the chance to peer into film sets and meet larger-than-life characters like Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story and Princess Elsa from Frozen. There are also dazzling live shows and family-friendly rides.
Together with neighbouring Parc du Frenes, Parc du Bicheret occupies more than 30 hectares in the heart of Chessy. Stroll along the tree-lined paths, enjoy a picnic on the grass and watch ducks paddling around the pond.
The Garden Sculptures of Dhuys dot the banks of the River Marne and were created by local artist, Jacques Servières. He’s been carving the sculptures for more than 30 years, with some of the tallest more than four metres high. A riverside trail takes you past the sculptures and is a scenic place to stretch your legs.
