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

4 Star Rating Had such a good time at Disney Land! It is easy to get there by train from Paris (takes less than an hour and if you have a week pass for metro and train, there is no extra fees). It is also not as expensive as rumor has it, if you buy in advance online. The place has two parks, one of them being more directed at children (still fun and nostalgic for adults as well though) and the Walt Disney Studios park being more directed at an older crowd with wild roller coasters. I especially recommend Crush's Coaster - get there early before the queues do! In general there are a lot of queues at Disney Land - but that is to be expected. Also, the restaurants are expensive but that too is to be expected. The reason the place does not get five stars from me is because a lot of their roller coasters were closed or closed as we got in the line to them - bit annoying after having waited in line for 30 minutes. The park closes at 8 pm so make sure to get there early as it is definitely a whole-day-project. Best part of my trip to Paris though and had a great time - definitely tempted to visit again!

4 Star Rating It's a nice and beautiful park. But it is also kind small if you know the real one from Orlando. The food there is very very expensive. For a popcorn they ask you almost 6 euro. But you can bring your own food from outside with you. That's what I would advice everybody. The attractions are nice, I liked the ratatouille the most. Was stunning in 3D!!! Awesome! And for me it was not possible to get both parks in one day. If you really want to see a lot, you need more than one day. Enjoy your journey to Disneyland 👍😀

4 Star Rating Fun place to go as an adult or bring kids. Quality and layout is true Disney. All staff speak English. A variety of food is available to purchase as well as sit and eat, from simple fast food to fancy dining. Food is not cheap but also not super expensive for what you get (fast food). Unfortunately lines are long for rides, and we did see rides also go out of order at times, once for us after waiting 35+ min, get on ride, it goes out of order and we just had to get off and leave. Would be nice to get a fast pass to another ride.. We didn't see the main parade as didn't hear it being announced or any notices of when it was on. Would be nice to just have some static play equipment for little kids to just play on, like climbing frame and slippery slides..

4 Star Rating 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!
