Disneyland Paris for first timers

The Tickets

First think first, the tickets. Don’t buy your Disneyland Paris tickets on last minute or at the park entrance. The tickets at the park entrance are the most expensive. Choose the official Disneyland Paris website or an official authorized reseller. Some resellers do great deals.

The Date

What date are you planning to visit? During summer ( mainly during July and August) and during school holidays the parks are busy, but keep in mind that Fridays can be the less crowded even during high season months.

Inside the parks you will find rides for all ages and tastes. During summer, the parks are usually open from 10:00 to 23:00. That should give you up to 13 hours for rides, attractions and eating.
Days in Disneyland Paris are long.

The Show

Dinseyland Paris nightshow is a must see. It’s called “Illuminations” 🎆✨ and it is a spectacular show with lights and lasers on the Disneyland Paris castle and film projected onto water fountains. And all these under a sky in fireworks.

The Rides

First time at Disneyland Paris- Informations and tips

You just can’t do all the rides and attractions in 1 day. You better choose in advance what are you going to do.

Our favorite rides in WDS:

Crushes Coaster: Maybe the ride with the longer queues in WDS. It’s a stunning indoor roller coaster. Maybe, you should start with that as the waiting time is important during the day.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: The decoration is amazing. If you are not afraid of highs, you are going to live this attraction.

Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy. In the shoes of Remy the mouse flying inside the “Bistrot Chez Remy”.

Many other rides and attractions are currently closed as WDS is changing.

Our favorite rides in Disneyland Park:

The Disneyland Park is bigger, divided into 5 thematic lands. As a general idea, the WDS is better for thrill rides, and Disneyland Park is reputed for its iconic out-of-this world ambience. Disneyland Park is the main park and it is usually more busy with families with young children.

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain: The fastest indoor roller coaster in Disneyland Paris. A must if you like thrill rides.

Indian Jones Temple of Peril: An outdoor coaster with a 360 loop. It is situated in the Adventureland, and has the tallest height requirement in the parks, so not usually as busy as other coaster rides. 😉

Pirates of the Caribbean. This ride is also in Adventureland. It’s an indoor ride and the decoration is amazing. Queues are moving relatively fast for this attraction as the boats’ capacity is high.

Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast: Shooting at target while flying. Great fun for both adults and childen.

If you have small children, Fantasyland will be worthy for you.

Times of shows and parades will be on the park programme. You should not miss the main parade in Disneyland Park. 😎
