Disneyland hardly needs an introduction, but one thing is certain, your kids will be real happy if you give them a break from visiting all those Paris museums and take them to Disneyland for a day or two. You'll love it too and it is actually very easy to get there on public transport.
Opened in 1992, Disneyland Paris is the 4th Disneyland Park to open in the world and it is the only one in Europe. In terms of area, it is the second largest behind Disney World in Orlando Florida. This popular attraction is located 32 km from the centre of Paris, primarily in the commune of Chessy. The theme park has been in operation since 1992.
There are no end of fun things to do in Disneyland as I am sure you can imagine. There are two theme parks, seven hotels which are owned by Disney themselves as well as a retail centre. The nice thing with Disneyland is that your pass gives you unlimited access to all of the rides and attractions. You'll only have to pull your wallet out if purchasing food or souveniers.
Disneyland is not just for the young. It features a great number of attractions that will appeal to both young and old alike. In fact, I would dare say that very few attractions would not appeal to the child in all of us.
There are seven hotels located right at Disneyland from which to choose. It is a good idea to book far in advance since accommodation is in great demand. Resort guests are given an exclusive two hours of time in the park before it is opened to the public. If your accommodations are in central Paris you can still easily get to Disneyland for one or more days of fun as the RER provides direct access and will get you there in less than an hour. Just see our "Getting There" section farther down the page for directions. Book in advance and save money on a 2 Park 1 Day Ticket. You'll find the link under the Fee section above.
There are also 59 restaurants within the park's confines and a further eleven at the resort hotels and five more at festival Disney. No alcoholic beverages are served within the park so you won't have to be concerned about inebriated tourists ruining your day.
Aside from all of this, there are the rides and activities that can be found within the park. These should keep even the most hyperactive child (or adult) amused for many hours. You should plan to spend more than one day at the theme park if you want to experience everything they have offer. Begin planning your day trip to Disneyland Paris with the information below.

I have been there 6 years ago and this place is amazing. Lots of fun activity around the day. Best for kids above the age of 9 years. They have in house train facilities to take you around and will cover everything. Food option are limited but quality are good. Best time to visit in the month of June to August.

Wow!! What a great experience and each time we've been (3 times over the last 12 years) I get more and more impressed. It is quite an expensive extravagance but you see where it all goes. The huge workforce keep everywhere super tidy all the entertainment is top class and any need or desire can be met. We visited for Christmas and it certainly was the nicest way to start the festive season.

Amazing place. It was a dream come true for me. It's a must visit for anyone who stays in Paris. You should visit the two parks. Disneyland has many amenities, attractions and shops that you definitely have to visit. The park is wonderful. Make sure you visit it. It is an experience you will never forget.

A magical experience, very well made from the lights, architect to the safety measurements... A bit expensive but It is worth every penny spent there. I strongly recommend this place for children and adults. The best time to visit is at Christmas time.

World class amusement park. It is one of the most popular Disneyland park in the world. Our family had the best time here, enjoying every ride and he shows. Disney shows are very exciting. The evening Grand Parades are amazing and you can't miss it. There are many restaurants for variety of options.
