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.

What can I say? It's Disney and it's magical! Took my daughter for 3 days for her birthday in 2017. We had a fantastic time. Only regrets are not making full use of the fast track facilities and if you want to get a fast track ticket for the ratatouille ride get there early! (Also take a pack up it's much cheaper than eating on or off park). The only thing I'd suggest is having the characters walk around the park instead of making people queue in one spot or introducing fast tracks for popular characters as we waited 3 and a half hours to meet one princess and it wasn't even guaranteed which princess you'd meet. It's too long to queue, not so bad for couples who take it in turns holding the place in the line and go off to take their children on a ride. But for a single parent with children it was horrible.

As a person that has frequented both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in LA. Disneyland Paris is a far cry from the two above mentioned places. I am a true Disney die hard fan. The Disney charm was definitely there but what really dampened our stay was the quality of service or lack there of and the horribly over priced most of the time inedible food. It was appallingly down right bad. The only decent/good not even food we had in our entire 4 days spent there was at Remi’s Restaurant in Disney Studios. Let me just say it’s really great a five guys opened there. Definitely bring your own food if possible. Now for the service, Disney prides itself on keeping a certain image, making you feel the magic all the time no matter how old you are. Yeah there was no magic with the staff there at. They were most of the time ( there were a few that were friendly and helpful) just plain rude and bored. I don’t know if they were overworked or underpaid or both. But Disney needs to up their game and match their standard in the States. Luckily it was my sons first visit to any park anywhere and he loved it and is too young to notice these things. To summarize, the only reason I would ever visit again is because it’s close and way more affordable than purchasing a ticket to the states for my whole family. If visiting the states was an option that was readily available to me then I would never waste my time in Disneyland Paris.

There is really far too much to say and I can't be bothered writing it all down. This place is excellent for your kids and also you. Every detail is thought of to make the experience magical. I would recommend that you have a few days off once you return home, I'm at the gym 5 days a week and I was absolutely shattered lying on my couch for 2 days. My 3 and 5 year old slept for about 12 hours each of the days.

Disneyland Paris is truly a magical experience. I spent a whole day visiting the main attraction and going on various amazing rides. Loved the Flying Dumbo and Pirates of the Caribbean rides. There are lots of restaurants and cafes to take a break and have a bite and it's not pricey. I will definitely come back again to enjoy more rides.

Had my first trip to Disneyland Paris over the past weekend. Had a great time, found the app really helpful when looking for attraction wait times and places to eat. Only problem was the cost and quality of the food in the parks. As a vegan I really struggled to get a good meal (I practically lived off chips and nachos) as I didn't find staff to be very helpful when trying to find out if the food was appropriate for me. But overall it was a great trip to a beautiful place and I really enjoyed my stay. ✨ Also the fireworks and illuminations shows are absolutely incredible I highly recommend you watch them.
