Our top 10 travel tips to have a hassle-free experience at Disneyland Paris
Be prepared to get those steps in.
It is no surprise that Disneyland stretches across a considerable amount of acres and the entirety of it is walk-able. It is easier to get from one place to another by foot so most visitors opt to walk across the property. So, when visiting, make sure you are well-prepared to walk for miles and miles.
Download the Disneyland Paris App
This app will become your eyes and ears throughout your Disney adventure. It is particularly helpful as it shows the live ride waiting times, showtimes as well as opening and closing times of the park and restaurants.
Make sure your phones are fully charged.
Although this is obvious, it is worth mentioning. The last thing you want is to run around looking for a place to charge your phone. You definitely don’t want to miss out on any photo ops at the most magical place in Europe.
Keeping contact with your pack is vital when visiting Disneyland as getting separated amidst the mass crowds is very possible. Although cast members on site will help you, it would be much easier to have a means of communication at all times.
P.S. – Power banks will come in handy too!
Language is not a barrier here.
Not all Europeans speak the same language, so don’t worry if your French is limited to ‘Bonjour’ and ‘oui’. Almost all cast members can speak English and will be able to help you with anything. Added to that, menus, maps, safety instructions and even portions of rides with narrations are in English. So, you have nothing to fear.
Early bird catches the worm.
Disney world Paris can get very crowded, very fast, so in order to avoid disappointment, it’s always better to start on your adventure a little early. That being said, for some of the noteworthy attractions like the ‘Disney Illuminations’ and the ‘Disneyland Paris Parade’ it is best to secure a good spot well ahead of time. You are guaranteed to get a beautiful view of the fireworks or the parade without having to worry if someone will block your view. Trust us, these are two shows that are going to be worth the wait.
Dine during off-peak times.
Restaurants at Disneyland Paris can get painfully busy during peak times. The best way to avoid big crowds and have a fuss-free meal is to have a late lunch or an early dinner. If not you will be wasting a lot of valuable park time waiting in a never-ending queue.
Another perk of not dining during peak times is; most rides will have shorter queues as visitors will be at lunch or dinner. So, this also makes it a great opportunity to experience a few more rides with the added bonus of shorter lines.
Let the magic continue at Disney village.
The Disney village comes alive at night, where the magic continues for hours after the park closes. It has an array of unique shops and restaurants that you may not even find inside the park.
However, even if you aren’t interested in shopping or dining, Disney village is still worth the visit. The atmosphere comes alive especially at night, to keep the magic alive till dawn.
BYOS – Bring Your Own Snacks!
The food at Disney world Paris is a tad bit overpriced, so you may find yourself opting to eat less. However, you are allowed to bring your own snacks which is sure to save a significant amount of money.
Hop on the popular rides first.
Like any other Disney theme park in the world, Disneyland Paris also has its very own popular rides with endless queues. So, the best option is to hop on these popular rides as early as possible and get them out of the way. This will save you a lot more time to explore and enjoy the rest of the park.

Patience is the greatest virtue.
