Since opening its gates in April of 1992, the Disneyland Paris Resort has become the 4th most visited them park in the world, and has surpassed the Eiffel Tower as the most popular attraction in the Paris area.
Like its Disney counterparts, the resort features theme parks, numerous themed resorts, and a shopping complex.

To adequately experience everything that Disneyland Paris has to offer, a holiday of at least two days is necessary. All of the magic you’d expect from Disney is there: the parks are immaculately clean, the service is impeccable, the characters are enthusiastic, and the pixie dust is plentiful. Kids young and old alike will not be able to help getting swept up in the frenzy of Mickey Mouse!

Like any other Disney resort, the best place to stay in order to get the “full” Disney experience is on Disney property. Disney has partnered with seven off-site hotels to provide accommodations and transportation to the parks, but staying at one of the seven on-property Disney hotels will create a full-on Disney immersion experience.

Each of the seven Disneyland Paris resorts has a unique American theme to it. The jewel in the crown is the Disneyland Hotel. Disney’s on-property lodging options include the Hotel New York, Disney’s Newport Bat Club, Disney’s Sequoia Lodge, Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne, Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe, and Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch. Each resort is impressive in its attention to detail, and while staying there, you will enjoy fine amenities, dining, and service.

Dining is as much an experience at Disney as the rides or the resorts. Throughout both parks, there are fun themed restaurants that serve up a variety of quick service, a la carte, and specialty menu items. The resorts also offer a variety of dining options, both casual and more luxurious.

Character dining is available in a few of the restaurants at Disneyland Paris. Character dining is a fun and memorable experience for kids and adults alike. Enjoy a delicious meal, and mingle with a selection of popular Disney characters, who will dole out plenty of hugs, sign autographs, and take photos with everyone individually.

Character dining experiences are available at Auberge de Cendrillon in Fantasyland, Cafe Mickey at Disney Village, and Inventions at the Disneyland Hotel.At Disney Village, an extension shopping and dining complex, there are numerous quick service and table service dining options. From quick service places like McDonald’s, Starbucks, and New York Style Sandwiches to more relaxed table service places like the fun Rainforest Cafe, King Ludwig’s Castle, and Planet Hollywood to many more options, there is a tasty meal around every corner.

It’s Disney; see and do everything! Get caught up and feel like a kid again! Disneyland Park is the original – and main – attraction of Disneyland Paris.

Sleeping Beauty’s Castle looms large and beautiful as the park’s focal point, and from there you can explore five lands: Main Street USA, Discoveryland, Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Frontierland. Ride the classic Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups and Dumbo the Flying Elephant in Fantasyland, the fun Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland, the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland, and the thrilling Space Mountain and Star Tours in Discoveryland.

Stroll along the quaint Main Street USA and shop, enjoy street entertainment, and take a ride on the Disney Railroad.

Walt Disney Studios Park celebrates everything about movies and television, and is split into four stage lots: the Front Lot, the Back Lot, the Production Courtyard, and Toon Studios. Explore the Art of Disney Animation, let the kids have some fun at Toy Story Playland, and feel as if you are on a movie set with authentic props and sets all around you.

Due to its wild popularity, Disneyland Paris is virtually always crowded, especially on weekends and during school holidays.

To avoid the larger crowds, visit in May-June and September-October, when the local kids are in school and there are no holidays to work around.
