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.

It's a magical place! Lots of amazing rides but we spent a lot of time in queues. My daughter (age 7) loved meeting the different characters and getting their autographs. The parade and the light show is absolutely wonderful! Downside is the prices on food. It's extremely high! Not at all affordable.

Had loads of fun and enjoyed every moment. Though we had very little time, we made the best use of it. Enjoyed all the rides we could manage in the few hours that we spent there. Pl try to spend at least a day or two, just for Disneyland in Paris. Tasted the Candy Apple for the first time and fell in love with it instantly. I recommend it to everyone who has a sweet tooth. Disneyland Paris was an awesome experience. One more information for visitors, especially to the foreigners, the staff are very very friendly and helpful.

The most magical place I've been, from the moment we staying the the sequoia lodge the staff were fantastic. The actors made sure my partners daughter had the most incredible time. Perfect for any age, and even better at Christmas! We'll be back this year! Of course its slightly pricey when in the park and there are crowds, but its a theme park! Still had a wonderful time

Great place, great atmosphere, but WOW, the food prices are the highest I have ever seen (and by a long way) of any resort. We paid €68 for fish and chips for two adults and three children! Insane. Add to that a bottle of diet coke (€3.70) and then ice cream (€3.90) and the day gets very expensive. Giving it three stars because of this and the fact that Thunder Mountain and Hyperspace Mountain were both out of action for several hours during the day. Seems Disney should spend some money on ensuring the attractions are fully serviceable prior to opening. Other than that, typical Disney experience.

In keeping with tradition after my husband's death I now spend my birthday in Disney, the happiest place on earth ; this year it was in Paris' Disneyland. It was nice to see the differences and similarly. Other then being a little smaller and the absence of turkey legs it was a nice park. I didn't visit the studio park. In the entrance the had various attractions like Planet Hollywood, a movie theater and others. The park was beautiful and well maintained. The weather was great as well not as hot as Orlando this time of year.
