Know Before You Go: Tips for Visiting Disneyland® Paris

Know Before You Go: Tips for Visiting Disneyland® Paris

For many kids, a trip to Disneyland® Paris is the ultimate fantasy, but when planning your dream family vacation, it can be hard to know where to start. From booking your tickets to skipping the queues—here are some of our top tips for visiting Disneyland Paris.

Buy Tickets in Advance

Purchasing your tickets in advance means you can take advantage of flexible dates, combination deals, and added extras like Paris transfers. You'll also enter the park much faster than you would otherwise. If you can't decide between Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios© Park, pre-purchase a 1-day, 1-park ticket and decide upon arrival, or book a 2-park hopper ticket to experience both.

Book Round-Trip Transport from Paris

Disneyland Paris is set 27 miles (44 km) east of Paris, so skip the hassle of navigating the Ile-de-France region on your own by booking a tour that includes round-trip transport between your Paris hotel and the Disney theme park.

Hop Between Two Parks

See both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park with a 2-park hopper ticket that allows you to hop between the parks as often as you'd like—you'll double the fun with additional thrilling rides and things to do. Disneyland Park offers five themed lands to explore (Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantastyland, and Discoveryland), while Walt Disney Studios Park is all about movie magic and TV, featuring four studio lots (Production Courtyard, Toon Studio, Backlot, and Front Lot), a variety of shows, and behind-the-scenes studio tram tours.

Opt for FASTPASS® Tickets

Avoid long lines with free FASTPASS® tickets to the park's most popular rides, including Space Mountain: Mission 2 and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril. To get a FASTPASS®, insert your park ticket into one of the machines at the ride entrance. You'll receive a ticket indicating a time slot—just returned within that time frame to bypass the standard line for the far shorter FASTPASS® line. These tickets can only be issued for one attraction at a time. To steer clear of long lines elsewhere, board the Disneyland Railroad at a stop away from the main entrance gates; take advantage of the Baby Swap service or Single Rider lines; or time your arrival at the most popular rides during big shows or parades.

Save Money on Food and Drinks

Eating in the Disney Village can be pricey, but it's a fun part of the Disney Experience. You can cut down on costs by enjoying just one meal a day inside the park and bringing a picnic lunch and snacks. Instead of paying extra for drinks, bring a refillable bottle and make the most of the free water fountains around the park. 

Explore Beyond the Park

If you're staying at Disney for several days, make sure to visit some of the surrounding sights too—4-and 5-day passes must be used within seven days of their first use, so that leaves at least two extra sightseeing days. The La Vallée Village and Val d'Europe shopping centers are just minutes from the park, as is the grand Chateau de Champs-sur-Marne, or you could take the high-speed train into Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, visit the Louvre or cruise along the Seine.

Stay After Dark

The Disney park is open late through summer, and staying until closing time is worthwhile—especially for the spectacular nighttime Disney Illuminations light and color show at Sleeping Beauty Castle in Fantasyland.
