How to plan the perfect weekend at Disneyland Paris

August 27, 2021
As the second most-visited tourist attraction in the world, Disneyland Paris is on the bucket list of many travellers, and not just the little ones. Only 1 hour from Paris on the train, it’s a popular weekend escape for Parisians and tourists, all hoping to capture the magic of the ‘happiest place on earth’. From how to get there, ticket types and where to stay, our guide to planning the perfect weekend at Disneyland Paris is all you need. It’s time to get acquainted with Mickey Mouse.

Getting there

So, you’ve got the knack of getting around Paris, but now you want to leave for a weekend at Disneyland Paris. The theme park is just 20 miles from central Paris with trains running directly to Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy, the station right outside the gates, hundreds of times a day, all throughout the year. If you’re taking a vacation on the Eurostar International Limited, it’s also very easy to get to Disneyland Paris as the Disneyland Paris Express runs from Gare Du Nord where the Eurostar terminal is. The Disneyland Paris Express is a convenient shuttle that whisks you from the centre of the city to the park and tickets can be bought at the same time as you purchase entry.

Ticket types 

There are a number of options for buying tickets for Disneyland Paris, but make sure you book in advance as this will make it cheaper and means you can avoid some of the queues. You can choose one-day tickets if you just want to visit for 12 hours and perhaps explore the rest of Paris over the weekend. Or you can purchase a multi-day ticket which will grant you access for two or more days. There is also the option to buy some add-ons with your tickets, like passes to special shows and dinners as well as meet and greets with the stars. If you really want to beat the crowds then pay extra for a Fast Pass which will allow you to breeze through the queues straight to the front of every line.

Things you shouldn’t miss 

Rub shoulders with some of the worlds most iconic characters as you explore Disneyland Paris and the enchanting surroundings. With rollercoasters, ghostly mansions and parades, the kids will never be bored and adults can sit back and relax in one of the many eateries. Take your photo in front of the Magic Kingdom and enjoy the whimsical atmosphere and blaze of colour and excitement.

Where to stay 

While Disneyland Paris itself has many hotels, staying in an apartment in central Paris can be a great way to enjoy a more grown-up break. After the chaos of the theme park you can take yourself out for dinner at one of Paris’s best restaurants and soak up the ambience in the city of lights. Choose an apartment in Paris near the Gare Du Nord train station so that you’re within easy walking distance of transport links, or for something a little chicer, opt for a Paris apartment with an Eiffel Tower view for a quintessential Parisian experience.
