Disneyland Paris, all you need to know. How to get there, attractions, tickets, app
Disneyland Paris is a unique experience that you can do even if you are an adult! It is huge, so I propose a short guide to know the most important things.
From how to get there and the opening hours to which attractions to go, even if you don’t have a lot of time. Plus, you will know why is it a good idea to download the Disneyland Paris app, if it is possible to buy a ticket from your phone and where you can go to eat something.
As you can read from many reviews on the net, this is considerated the happiest place on Earth by so many people. If you are skeptic, you will surely admit that at least this is one of the best entertainment parks!
Disneyland Paris, attractions and tours
The Adventure Isle that recalls Peter Pan; the labyrinth from Alice in Wonderland. Another of the attractions that I like is the Buzz
Lightyear Laser Blast! If you feel very adventurous, you can go to “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril”.
If you want to do an activity that is calmer, you can go for the Dumbo Flying Elephant. Some attractions never get old! Just like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups or the Pinocchio voyages.
When you go to Disneyland you will meet the main characters such as Mickey Mouse and you will surely see lots of antique-style cars. They are very fascinating. Going to Disneyland means immerse yourself in a magic atmosphere. It is all so dreamy!
You can also decide to take part to a tour. The Barbizon and the Chateaux ones are to make you discover Paris and its region. Joining some tours, you will go from Disneyland to the centre of Paris. For example, if you stay your whole holiday in Disneyland, you can visit the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) and the Notre-Dame church in just one day, joining the special tour.
You can also join tours at night or to explore Paris in just one day. You will not experience the city but you will surely see what you can’t miss since you are in France!
They also propose tours in small towns near the park. Blandy-les-Tours, Meaux, Provins. You just have to choose which one you want to see and when you want to leave the park.
Disneyland Paris, how to get there
To get there, you can take advantage of bus and train rides. You can go there by RER or by metro (i.e. subway).
If you are going to Disneyland from the center of Paris, go to Nation station and then take the RER A. This one will take you to Mame-la-Valée-Chessy stop. You will be very close to the park!
When you go to Disneyland from the airport, you just have to wait for the Magical bus that take you there! If you take it from Charles De Gaulle CDG airport, go to 2F Terminal. From Orly, you must go to the bus station Gate G, Quay 5. If you arrive in Beauvais, you must book a SuperShuttle.
Disneyland Paris, opening hours and entrance ticket
Extra “Magic” Time is from 8.30 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. It is a variation that depends on the day, on your ticket or on special events. So, consider the 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. as assured opening hours.
If you are in super advance to book your stay to Disneyland, take a look on their site. They always do special offers such as Super Early Booker Winter 2019/Summer 2020, that include 25% off your package and a Free Half Board. Another example is a special ticket offer that ends in March 2019. With this last one, you pay an adult ticket at the price of a child ticket.
Other benefits are the extra magic time, so you can spend more time in the parks, or free parking. I think this is very good if you plan to stay there just for one day! If you have your ticket on the phone, you can ask to print it there as you show your ticket code. Another possibility is to show your ticket on phone by the Disneyland Paris App.
The prices are various. If you go there for just one day, the child ticket costs around € 50 and the adult one € 130.
You can also choose for tickets that include transports. If you choose to buy a ticket for more days, it may cost around € 160.
If you want to go more times in one year in Disneyland Paris, you can also buy a 1-year pass. There are many packages at various prices but it is only worth if you are planning to go there many times in just one year. Click here if you want to know more about that.
Dinsneyland Paris app
Using it, you will know which are the waiting time to go on the attractions and you will have a map where you can follow your movements thank to GPS! If you are not joining special excursions organized by Disneyland Paris staff, this is the perfect app to not get lost!
You can download it from the MacAppStore or from Google play. It is available in many languages. English, French, Italian, Spanish and Deutsch are just some of them.
With the app, you will just have to tap on the “Tickets” section to buy and show your tickets just from your phone!
I think this is very comfortable because on the app there are always updates about special opening hours, shows, parades…
Disneyland Paris food, the best restaurants and dining reservations
When you are in Disneyland Paris, even the lunch and dinner hours are special events! If you stay in one of the hotels in the park, you can make a dining reservation and enjoy what the accommodation staff planned for lunch or dinner time.
They often hosts Disney charachters, and they also propose special short shows.
In Disneyland, you have lots of places where you can eat high quality food. You can choose to go where they have very quick service, as “Au Chalet de la Marionnette” or at the “Cable Car Bake Shop”. If you prefer restaurants, you can choose the “Auberge de Cendrillon” or the “Captain Jack’s”.
Every restaurant or food spot is very quality checked. Just like the attractions, you only have to choose which theme you want to enjoy while eating. I think I would try “Hakuna Matata” Restaurant and then Fantasia Gelati, where they make ice cream!
