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.

Brilliant Disneyland in an easy-to-reach location. I really value the direct train which immerses you in Disney as soon as you disembark. Make sure you check ahead which rides are open or not to avoid disappointment – we didn't and couldn't ride many we were hoping to.

I loved Disneyland Paris. The attention to detail is incredible. Some say its targeted at kids but its the kind of place you can enjoy whatever your age if you are willing to let loose. There is always something to do and see and more often than not its quite spectacular. Don't miss the evening parade and firework display.

Asking 8€ for a Hotdog is fine, but make it good. Now they taste like plastic. The bun must have been three days old. And the Disney Minutes need to be fixed. We where in 40 min lines that claimed to be 10. 45 min where more like 1h20m. The place was spotless. No trash anywhere. Toilets where clean! Imagine that! In France! Clean toilets! Rides where magnificent!

Had an incredible day in Disneyland. Went to both parks, was absolutely incredible. The food isn't too expensive, however I did see a lot of people eating their own. Definitely get a map and plan where you're walking, otherwise getting lost is very easy. Certain rides look like the queue is longer than it is e.g. A Small World but actually only take 10 minutes to get on. A really great day.

My 5 year old step-daughter was so excited and loved it here, she didn't want to leave.The parade is not to be missed, and if you can stay until 11pm there is a fireworks show. Some of the rides are fast-track, but not all. I highly advise booking your tickets online and NOT buying them there on arrival. You will save loads of money (almost half the price online). Be aware, there are NO PICNICS allowed in the park, there are signs everywhere. Also worth bringing an extra pair of clothes for the kids. Great day out all-in-all.
