Planning to finally treat your kids (and yourself) to a once in a lifetime trip to Disneyland Paris?! Well, you’re in for a rollercoaster of emotions as you dance and sprint through the lands. The magic of Disneyland Paris is like no other, as you take flight and land in a whole new world! Children can chitchat with their heroes whilst parents can relive their childhood as they engage with interactive experiences.

There’s no better place than to let down your long hair! Fitting in many rides, meet and greets and meals into a long weekend can be plenty thingy-ma-bobs especially when there are two parks to explore. But with this buzzing guide, you can find the right park for you, or realise that both are your cup of tea! Be our guest as we breakdown the details of the two parks and look forward to your magical trip…

Starting off with our main attraction, Disneyland Park is world-renowned for its range of rollercoasters, themed restaurants and its dazzling display of fireworks each evening. With thrill-seeking rides Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain, the park is far from just being whimsical. For all the younger mad hatters, there’s Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan’s Flight, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast and of course Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups!

There’s something in Disneyland Park for everyone. When your energy is running low, you can go from zero to hero with the various dining opportunities available. Whether its eating on the go from Rocket Café or sitting for quick bites at Restaurant Hakuna Matata or leisurely dining at Walt’s, you don’t have to worry about going hungry. Not Olaf for you… Every day 30 dancers, performers and Disney characters fill the streets near Sleeping Beauty’s castle and give you a parade like no other. And at last, you’ll see the light with the Disney Dreams Nighttime Extravaganza as fireworks fill the sky with colours of the wind!

Not as large but just as enchanting, Walt Disney Studios Park is the second park in Disneyland Paris. Famously home to The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, this park is also full of thrills. However, you don’t have to stay in your tower as there are many unique experiences and opportunities to witness behind-the-scenes magic! With a Studio Tram Tour, hop onboard with Mickey and travel through the park in style.

Live your culinary dreams on the Ratatouille: The Adventure attraction and sit back and relax at the Moteurs…Action stunt show! You’ll go into the unknown and return home, excited by the innovation of animation and magic of live shows. For 2024, Walt Disney Studios Park are hosting Alice & The Queen of Hearts Back to Wonderland as an exclusive take on the childhood classic. Every corner you turn in Walt Disney Studios Park is a feast for the senses!
