Your day trip to Disneyland Paris will start in the morning with a shuttle bus leaving from central Paris. It will drop you off right next to the park. Once you get off the bus, let yourself dive into a magical world, making your trip a true fairy tale!
When you enter the park you will have a mesmerizing view of the Sleeping Beauty Castle. Do not hesitate to take a picture. Then, during the whole day, enjoy the landmarks, rides, events, music, and settings of both parks which will take you to a whole other world.
Go back to your childhood by enjoying the parade. Characters from Disney will come and wave at people. It is a chance for you to catch a glimpse of the most famous Disney characters. If you want to take pictures with characters, there are areas where you can meet them. Also, Disney characters sometimes wander around the park, which is another great way to greet them.
At the end of the day, spend some time on Main Street USA or at the Disney Village where you can buy souvenirs and gifts. Then the shuttle bus will then come and get you to go back home.
✓ Think about your meals in advance. Reservations are highly recommended if you plan to eat at a restaurant. Otherwise, you can pack your own lunch and save time.
✓ To fully enjoy your day, wear good shoes and dress comfortably. High heels are not recommended as you will spend a lot of time walking and standing. Carry a sweatshirt, a hat, sunglasses or sunscreen if needed, and pack an extra pair of socks and t-shirt in case you get soaked from water rides. Bring a refillable water bottle with you and your portable battery pack for your smartphone if you have one.
✓ Before going, pick out three or four attractions that you really want to do (especially the popular attractions) so you won’t waste your time trying to find the area and you can avoid the queues.
✓ Make use of the Disneyland Paris FASTPASS. It is the best way to avoid the endless queue. All you have to do is scan or insert your Disney Park admission ticket into the FASTPASS machine (usually located near the attraction). You’ll receive a FASTPASS ticket with your return time. Experience other rides elsewhere while you wait, and come back between the time indicated on the ticket. You’ll be able to enjoy your ride within a matter of minutes thanks to the special entrance. The FASTPASS is only available for certain rides. You can have one ticket per person. Another ticket can only be obtained once the previous one has been used (valid for only 30 minutes) or 2 hours after the previous one. You can only obtain a FASTPASS with the Disney Park admission ticket valid for the same day.
