Disneyland Paris holidays

February 9th, 2009 by paris

Disneyland Paris is just 40 minutes away by train from Paris, so it is easy to experience all the thrill of the rides and the magic of Disneyland Paris holidays.

You need to buy tickets for

    1.Disneyland Paris Entrance ticket

    2.Rail ticket to reach Disneyland (Mobilis recommended) or Shuttle from CDG or Orly

You do not need to book in advance, and as the tickets can be bought from tourist information centers and RER ticket offices you can choose a day when the weather is perfect (there are often long queues to buy the tickets at Disneyland itself so it makes sense to buy them at the station). It is quieter on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, even during the holidays, so go then if you want to avoid the queues.

The most popular attractions are

  1. Big Thunder Mountain
  2. Indiana Jones and
  3. Space Mountain

You can buy a fast pass to avoid the queues but a good tip is to either go first thing in the morning, or wait for the beginning of one of the parades and start queuing then.

Lunchtimes the cafes and restaurants can be very busy, especially during the holidays,with not enough seating, so it is best to eat earlier, or later, than usual and avoid the rush.

Disneyland Paris holidays are increasingly popular, but you can also really enjoy a day-trip.

A one-day ticket for Disneyland Paris is approx 40 euros and allows entry to either Walt Disney Studios, or Disneyland Park, with Disneyland Park being the more usual Disneyland Paris holiday choice.

How to get there

Take the RER A-4 ligne (destination Marne La Vallee-Chessy, is the last stop) direct to Disneyland Paris, a return ticket costs the same amount as a one day MOBILIS Zone 1-5 travel pass, so buy the travel pass (at any RER or Metro station) and the rest of the days travel (on RER, Metro, Bus, Tram, Funicular, within Paris) is free.

Between Orly, Roissy Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airports and Disneyland
