What is there to do at Disneyland Paris?Where should we start! Disneyland Paris is made up of two theme parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Both parks include rides for both thrill-seekers and families with small children, both offer the chance to meet your favorite Disney characters throughout the day, and both are home to stores, restaurants, and themed shows. There’s also the Disney Village, which is outside the park and is free to visit, which has even more restaurants, shops, and is sometimes home to concerts. You can easily spend a whole day inside each park, there’s so much to see and do!
What’s the difference between Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park?Disneyland Park is the Disneyland you’ve seen in the adverts. It’s home to Main Street U.S.A., which leads up to Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Fantasyland. You can also visit Adventureland, Frontierland, and Discoveryland - there are rides based on the Disney princesses, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars and so much more! Disneyland Park is also home to the classic Disney parade and nightly firework display. Walt Disney Studios Park is slightly smaller and is themed around the production of movies - you enter via the Front Lot, can explore the Toon Studio and Production Courtyard, and can take a tour of the Back Lot where you’ll see demonstrations of mechanical effects. There are more rides based on Disney Pixar movies like Toy Story and Ratatouille, plus there are shows and chances to meet characters. Both parks are fantastic, but if you only have time for one then head for Disneyland Park to get that classic Disney magic feeling.
Where do we meet the characters?Disney characters appear throughout the park at special Meet and Greet locations - it’s best to look these up before your visit and check what times of the day you’re most likely to spot them. You can also meet characters during breakfast, lunch, and dinner at certain restaurants in Disneyland Paris Park, but make sure to reserve ahead of time so you definitely get a seat!
What should we bring with us to the park?You’ll definitely need a camera or phone to take great pictures! We also advise bringing a spare battery pack and charger, especially if you’re planning to use the app to get around and check wait lines. Depending on the season and the weather forecast, bring warm waterproof coats and umbrellas, or sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. There are water fountains throughout the park, but bring a bottle to refill for standing in lines, especially in summer.
