The Shanghai Disneyland Park has the Tron Lightcycles Power Run. That is everything I’ve ever dreamed of. Excuse me while I fantasize about vising all Disney Parks. 

I still really want to go to Disneyland Paris, though. Discoveryland sounds so lovely. Les Mystères du Nautilus sounds like such a magical ride; I’m really just a sucker for Jules Verne.
