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.

Disneyland Paris Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Disneyland will forever be a place of immense joy for me. I had the absolute best time there with friends. The staff were great in making sure the paths were as save as possible after snow hit. The new drone light show was unbelievable and it was just great fun!

5 Star Rating Disneyland is a magic place. Bought the 1-day ticket for 2 parks and it did not disappoint. It was my birthday treat and definitely a magic way to spend your birthday. Went to the Walt Disney Park had to queue for some time to get to the best rides the longest wait was for crush’s coaster (about 90 minutes) but I’m glad we waited because it was very cool. Disneyland parades are magical plus all attractions. An unforgettable experience. Want to be back soon.

5 Star Rating Brilliant trip! Two adults and two kids (3 yo & 6 yo). Prepare to wait an hour or more for popular rides. Characters don't walk around like they used to. They had session times they entered for photos. Mickey Mouse was 90 mins at one point. Xmas is magical there and the parade is not to be missed. Just wrap up warm. Expect to burn a hole in your pocket. Toad in the hole did fish and chips. Very good food for the price and pretty good service as well. Certainly need two days for one park - one day to queue for the rides and another go walk around it all. Must do - it's a small world and Peter Pans flight.

5 Star Rating Loved the Christmas decorations. Wish they had more cast members taking photos. The pretzels were fantastic! Love the rides! Can do both parks in 1 day if you have the premier pass. Wish they had more character visits but loved Santa Stitch.

5 Star Rating Disneyland Paris offers a magical experience with its enchanting atmosphere and captivating attractions. The park's attention to detail creates a truly immersive environment. The entertainment options, parades, and character interactions are delightful. Prices for food and souvenirs can be high, but the overall enchantment makes it a worthwhile destination for families and Disney enthusiasts alike. I recommend to be there at the opening at 9h30 and to come during weekdays.
