It’s big, it’s popular and it’s a little overwhelming, so how best to maximize your time at Disneyland Paris? Be prepared! Make a plan!
Firstly, there are two actual parks: Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Do a bit of research to see what is where and which things are essentials on your list. A Park-Hopper ticket lets you go to both. For the shoppers among you, you may want to add a side trip to the nearby La Vallee Village designer outlets.
Disneyland Park has five magical lands plus rides and attractions galore. Walt Disney Studios brings you the magic of TV and film with shows and parades. At both you can meet Disney characters. The whole complex is 20 miles (32 km) from Paris (35 minutes by RER train) and while you can make a day trip, staying overnight will ensure you get the maximum from your visit. To really explore both parks properly, you’ll need to stay three or four days.
