Look Up At The Nautilus

Regular readers of DF'82 will know from the title that this post involves craning our necks and Looking Up!

Les Mysteres du Nautilus in Discoveryland, Disneyland Paris, is one of my favourite exploring attractions. Built in such a way that you really feel like you are in a novel of Jules Verne!

However, the entry to this attraction is just as impressive.

At first it seems like a simply rotunda, but the architecture on the top of the entryway shows some intricate design and great nods to an 19th Century view of the future.

An almost lighthouse feel, this small rotunda alludes to the fact that all is not as it seems, such as the Nautilus itself...
