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 5Disneyland Paris Star Rating

5 Star Rating A magical place!!! A fast track ticket is 100% recommended if you are there for a single day and to make the most out of it. Do not miss the top 10 rides, they all are awesome. Keep snacks handy. You can refill water bottles at hydration stations available at different locations.

5 Star Rating What a day of fun! We got there when the doors opened and was so excited! The rides are fantastic and the lines weren’t too long. The parade was so much fun and I can’t recommend the Alice in Wonderland maze enough! As a big kid, I had a blast!

5 Star Rating Went to experience new year but was extremely busy with over an hour minimum wait for rides. New years eve fireworks were very good but as they do a firework display every night anyway you wouldn't have missed out by going at a quieter time. Definitely worth a visit at any time of year but the Christmas decorations were spectacular.

5 Star Rating Simply amazing! I loved spending my Saturday with Mickey Mouse and his friends! I was with my boyfriend and we lived a fairy tale. I suggest you to see all they shows at 5pm and at 8pm. If you love cinema and Hollywood, you can’t miss the other park! You’ll enjoy your time, even if you’re older than a kid!
