Adventureland is one of the themed lands at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris in France. It contains more heavy Indian and Moroccan influences. It features four themed areas:
The first, known as Adventureland Bazaar, is a recreation of an oriental city from the 1001 Arabian Nights, presumably Agrabah from the 1992 Disney film Aladdin(Imagineers were designing the entrance area of this Adventureland while the film was still in production). In 1993, the attraction Le Passage Enchanté d'Aladdin opened in this very area. The concept of the city eventually reached overseas resorts.
The second part of Adventureland has a more African appearance, and is mainly composed of shops and restaurants (like the Hakuna Matata Restaurant).
The third themed area represents Asian mysterious jungles. Themed to explorers, it features the ride Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril, which was unique in a Disney park in 1993 with its first inversion.
This Adventureland presented some construction problems, mainly due to the unsuitable climate in France. Growing exotic jungles in a place where winters could be harsh was a tough task. This also explains why there is no Jungle Cruise ride, since most animatronics animals would have been exposed to this weather. However, abandoned ideas intended to build an adequate ride under a glass roof, but that never came happened.
