  • Castle dragon pictures?

    Does anyone have some good pictures or even video of the castle dragon?

    I went to Disneyland Paris in Janary 2006 and have some good photos of the dragon, but I have a problem when it comes to computers. I am just not good with them. If someone could explain how to post pictures here, I would be happy to share.

          I was wondering the same thing, judgeing from those pics it looks like it just moves. And Nacywitt, If you wanna post picture go to imageshack.com, click on free image hosting, upload the pic, and copy/paste the url on a post.

              Scaring me can be a bit complicated. It just jumps up and jolts you? Blows fire? Asks for my cell phone number regardless of who I'm with?

              It does look pretty cool. Is there a story attached? I mean, you just walk in, jump, walk out?

                  That's a bit of an oversimplification. It's one of the most realistic animatronics Disney's ever created and it's not even in the grand finale of some E-ticket attraction. It's just part of the amazing tour you can make through the castle... Basically it rattles its chains, it growls, it blows smoke, it goes dormant for a while and then it's at it again. Really really cool.

                  And by the way, why do people keep taking flash pictures of these extremely carefully lit scenes? It really doesn't do the critter justice.

                    hangs head in shame,
                    it was an accident, i thought i had taken the flash off.

                    its not part of the castle tour, its just an opening in the rock, you wander in and there is a huge dragon asleep, he wakes gets grumpy blows smoke and doses again, you stand there thinking how cool, whist a parent behind you carries the screaming terrified toddler out of the cave.

                    btw, did anyone know there is three exits to the cave? (front of castle, one in shop, behind the dragon) 14 years that took to find the third!

                    and in my defence of photos without flash

                        Okay, I don't know if I did this right, but here are some photos of the dragon I took in January. Remember, I am computer challenged when it comes to posting photos. Go easy on me!
                        This dragon is so cool! He is one of the reasons I let my husband talk me into flying across the Atlantic and walking around a park while it was freezing outside. I don't know if there is a story attached to him, but one of the ways you can get to him is through Merlin's shop located in the castle, so maybe he is Merlin's dragon. We told our kids it is the dragon from Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent. She didn't die when Prince Phillip stabbed her, but they had to put her somewhere, so this dungeon seemed to be the perfect place. My nine year old was all over it, but it took awhile for my five year old to get closer. They were both spouting about how brave they were to look the dragon in the eye. I can't stress how cool he is. You all have to make plans to go to France and check out this bad boy!

                            cheers laura,
                            shortly after that photo was taken i turned and ran as fast as i could to the eurostar to get back to blighty (man i LOVE the discount you get when youre under 26)

                            just to sound extra flashy, all of them were taken without tripod! there is alot of blurry ones though,

                              I love how the dragon opens, blinks, and squints his eyes. He squints when he's sleeping. Kinda like when your dog falls asleep but hes eyes are open a little or open a little at random. Maybe it's just my wierd dog.

                              is the dragon chain'd up?

                              the detail is amazing! I wish every park had one. Different looking though. I wish a dragon came climbing over the castle during a fireworks show just to make an apperance. (like fantasmic WDW but with less wings) Stop rambling jawn stop rambling...
