For anyone who has never been to Disneyland® Paris before, the resort is open all year round and provides a huge variety of attractions to suit the whole family:

Disneyland® Park
Four amazing lands can be discovered when you visit Disneyland Park. Fairytales really do exist in Fantasyland. Transport back in time to the Wild West in Frontierland. Travel from Africa to Asia, the South Pacific and Caribbean in Adventureland. It's all about the wonders of space and science in Discoveryland. Main Street USA will take you back to 1900s America.

Walt Disney Studios Park
Celebrating all things related to cinema, television and entertainment. Take a look behind the scenes in The Production Courtyard. Learn the tricks of the trade in The Animation Courtyard. Experience special effects in the Backlot and be transported back to 1930s movie-making in the Front Lot.

Disney Village
This is located between Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park and the onsite Disney Hotels. Further attractions can be found here including a cinema, IMAX, theatres, golf courses, restaurants, bars and so much more. You can buy souvenirs in one of the 40 unique shops here and remember to use the free shopping service where you can shop early in the day and pick up your goods after 6pm. Lake Disney should be visited too where you can ride pedalos, rowing boats and canoes in the summer.

You can treat the family to memorable experiences such as Character Breakfasts where the Disney characters will meet and greet the children, pose for photographs and give that all important autograph. There's a host of other special seasoned events such as Mickey's Bonfire and Firework Spectacular, Hallowe'en and of course, Christmas and New Year celebrations. Bear in mind that as France experiences similar weather to the UK, it can get quite cold if you're visiting the Parks during winter as the majority of the Disneyland® Paris rides are outside.

As with all holiday resorts, Disneyland Paris experiences a high and low season with Christmas being extremely popular with families. Weekends tend to be the busiest and prices can be more expensive compared to visiting the resort during midweek. However, with that being said, there are usually some great special offers on coach trips to Disneyland Paris where KIDS GO FREE.

If you're on a budget, but wish to stay in an onsite hotel, Disney's Santa Fe should tick all the boxes as it is basic but clean and has everything you could need during your stay. Please note that this hotel is the furthest from the park but it will only take a 15 minute walk along the river to get there. Unfortunately, this hotel does not have a pool but there could be an option on some tour packages to stay at Sequoia Lodge which does have swimming facilities. There is a bonus for choosing to stay in an onsite hotel as you will get 'Extra Magic Hours' which allows hotel guests to enter the Disneyland Park a couple of hours before the gates are open to the general public. However, not all of the rides and attractions will be open during 'Magic Hours' so best to check first.

Disneyland Paris Resort caters for all tastes especially when it comes to food with a variety of restaurants to choose from, including fast food, pizza, all-you-can-eat buffets, table-service restaurants, ice-cream parlours, steakhouses and of course, McDonalds. It's best to time when you are going to eat as during peak times the catering facilities can fill up quite quickly. There are lots of water fountains located around the Disney Parks should any of you become thirsty, perhaps take an empty bottle and fill up? You're allowed to take your own picnics and there is a special area for them which can be found to the side entrance walkway from the main car park.

As with all major theme parks, Disneyland® Paris does get quite busy especially during peak times so you should plan in advance the attractions you wish to see and the rides you desperately want to go on. Some of the attractions that should feature high on your list should be:

It's A Small World – perfect for little ones
Dumbo the Flying Elephant – perfect for little ones
Pirates of the Caribbean – perfect for the whole family
Big Thunder Mountain – perfect for older members of the family
Mad Hatter's Tea Cups – perfect for the whole family
Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain – perfect for older members of the family

Fastpass Service
When you arrive at either of the Disneyland Paris Parks, consider using the Fastpass service. This is a free service that helps you cut down on attraction waiting times. You will be allocated a time to go on the ride and when you come back, you can board the ride in a matter of minutes instead of queuing.

Disney PhotoPass+
Make sure those holiday moments last a lifetime. The Disney PhotoPass+TM allows you to acquire a digital album of all your photos taken during your break to Disneyland Paris, including those taken on rides or by Disney's own Photographers.
Capture even more memories!

Disabled Access Entrance
If anyone in your party is disabled, ask about an Easy Access Card on arrival at the Park. This allows you to get into certain rides and attractions via the Disabled Access Entrance. You can hire wheelchairs at the resort but these are issued on a first come, first served basis. If you can, bring your own collapsible wheelchair.

Getting the Little Ones Around 
If you're travelling with little ones, take a pushchair or perhaps hire one at the Park. Disneyland Paris is huge and it's surprising how many miles you will walk in a day. It's worth noting though that the buggies available to hire in either of the Parks can be bulky and do not recline.

Disney Parades 
The Disney Parades are one of the major highlights and are of course the most popular attraction at the resort. Allow plenty of time to find a good spot so your family can see the Characters and Floats on display.

The Weather
The majority of the rides and attractions at Disneyland Paris are undercover but you should take a lightweight waterproof or a poncho just in case the weather decides to turn. If you are travelling in the summer months, you should take some sun cream.

Meet and Greets
The 'Character Breakfasts' can be quite busy so if you'd rather experience a gentler 'Meet and Greet', some of the Disney Characters will be in the hotel lobby if you are staying onsite.

Visiting at Christmas
Visiting Disneyland Paris at Christmas time is a truly magical experience. The decorations are put up and fake snow is scattered across the Park in the early part of December. Please note it does get busy during the festive season so consider visiting the Park earlier in the year.

Fancy a brew? 
Not all rooms at the onsite Disney hotels will have tea or coffee-making facilities. Should you wish to have a hot drink, take a travel kettle or you can hire one from the hotel reception, you will need to pay a deposit though.

Entering The Park:

All visitors who go on coach trips to Disneyland Paris will have to pass through a baggage security checkpoint. A member of security personnel will want to take a quick look inside your belongings so please have your bags ready. On some dates there will be an x-ray machine in operation.

Prohibited items
You will not be allowed to take any of the following into either Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios Park:

  • Items with wheels
  • Alcohol
  • Weapons of any kind
  • Folding chairs
  • Glass containers (bottles, jars or perfumes)
  • Pets (unless Guide Dogs or service animals)

Queue Lines
Prepare yourself for an element of queuing especially during peak times. When in the queue you must stick to the marked path and on no account must you queue-jump. Disney Cast Members have the right to refuse queue-jumpers entry to the Parks attractions and rides. Smoking, eating and drinking is prohibited whilst waiting in the queue.

Ride Restrictions
Some of the rides and attractions will have height restrictions that will need to be observed. To find out how intense the ride or attraction will be and whether there are any other restrictions, take a look at the information signs located before each ride.

Filming and Photography
Flash photography is not allowed in any of the indoor attractions and for most indoor shows so please turn your flash off or do not use your camera at all. Video photography is not allowed for the indoor ride and show-based attractions.

To help you have an enjoyable holiday in France, take a look at these useful tips and advice provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO):

Health and Travel Insurance
Local Laws and Customs
Entry Requirements
Tourist Office

Health and Travel Insurance
When visiting France you should always ensure you have a free UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) before travelling. The GHIC isn't a substitute for travel and medical insurance, however it does entitle you to state-provided medical treatment should it become necessary during your trip. Any treatment is on the same terms as the French nationals. You should always make sure you have adequate travel insurance in addition to the GHIC and also access to funds which can cover the cost of any medical treatments and also repatriation.

Local Laws and Customs
You must be able to prove your identity either by providing documents when asked or within 4 hours at a police station. Identity documents can be a passport, a photo driving licence or other documentation provided by a government body.

In France concealing your face in public places is illegal, which includes full veils, balaclavas or any other mask or garment that conceals the face. Failure to comply with this ban can incur a maximum fine of €150. The law doesn't provide any exemption for tourists and visitors.

Entry Requirements

If you are planning to visit France, you must meet the following passport requirements.

Your passport must be:
- Issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’)
- Valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

Please note: If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. These extra months do not count towards your passport validity.

You can travel to France for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa.
Please note that any previous visits you have made to the Schengen countries within the last 180 days will count towards your 90-day limit.

Passport stamping
Your passport will be stamped if you enter or exit the Schengen area through France as a visitor. These passport stamps are used to check you’re complying with the 90-day visa-free limit in the Schengen area.

Any other nationality looking to visit France must contact the local embassy to check visa requirements.
