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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5

5 Star Rating A truly magical experience ! I suggest you plan to go for 2 whole days in Disneyland park and 1 day at the Studios to enjoy most of the shows and rides. Mark your favorite rides in each section of the map so you don't waste time going from one corner to another :) you'll be given a program that changes every week, it includes information for shows and parades or meeting times with Disney characters. If you want to eat healthy it's better to make restaurant reservations early.

5 Star Rating Fantastic theme park. Must visit for any Disney fan. It has everything that you could possibly want for an authentic Disney experience. Walt Disney Studio theme park is equally fantastic and has great attractions. All the rides are super fun for all ages. All the staff is super friendly and helpful. Would visit again when I'm in Paris next time.

4 Star Rating Went really just to compare against the original in Florida. To be honest I don't think after this visit you can compare, both are unique. What was missing in Disneyland Paris was the brashness of the Americans, but it makes up for this with a more sophisticated European style. This park is definitely better catered for those of us with smaller children, it lacks the adrenaline filled excitement of the Alton Towers, Universal Studios parks but delivers in spades the art of Disney when it comes to its own USP. In the end why did I like the day I spent here? It was because of the very European nature of the place.

5 Star Rating A truly amazing park and a must see for any Disney Fan! The staff was pleasant and the atmosphere was wonderful. Loved that they still had the parade even though it was raining. Those performers are troopers! Line queues were short, but character queues were long. The food inside the park was not great at all, but there are good places to eat at the Disney Village.
