What to pack for Disney? What should I bring to Disneyland Paris ❓
What are your must bring items into the park? Things you’d never leave home without? Things you wish you would’ve left at the hotel? These are common questions that may come up to you, when preparing your trip at Disneyland Paris.
If it’s your first time in Disneyland Paris, then we know that packing can be a struggle. And above all, weather in Paris is not stable. And definitely this is not a place where you want to have to buy the things that you have forgotten.
That’s why we have created this list to help you out in order to get the most out of your Disney experience 😉
What to pack?
A compact portable charger. You need to have one of these in your carry bag because it’s certain that you will need it. Your cell phone will be working overtime (photos, videos, sharing, WhatsAPP, etc) on your trip and chances are you won’t have time to fully charge it throughout the day.
Re-usable water bottle. You can get it everywhere with you and refill it for free as there many drinking water fountains in parks.
Hand Sanitizer. Disneyland Paris is a clean place but still very very crowded. You need to have one of these hand sanitizers in your carry bag and you won’t regret it. It’s lightweight and practical.
Comfortable shoes. Disneyland Paris is not the right place for your high hills. A day full of queuing and walking is waiting for you, and you need to have with you a pair of comfortable shoes.
Boots during winter season. Paris and rain are synonyms. The probability that it’s raining during your stay in Disneyland is high. It’s important to keep your feet dry and warm during this long day.
A medium sized backpack. Let’s be simple. You don’t need to carry your handbag around the park, and you will also need to have your hands free to take pics.
Rain ponchos or better a waterproof rain coat. We told you, Paris and rain are synonyms. You don’t want to have to buy these rain ponchos in the shops of Eurodisney. These are more expensive and you better spend those money elsewhere.
Weather in Disneyland Paris ☔
And now let’s talk about the weather in Disneyland Paris. In Paris, the summers are short, comfortable, and partly cloudy and the winters are long, very cold, windy, and mostly cloudy.
The average amount of annual precipitation is 25.59 in (650.0 mm). Rainfall is distributed fairly evenly throughout every season. On average, May is the wettest month and February is the driest month. For instance, there are about 171 days a year with precipitation of over 0.1 mm (0.004 in.), yet only 16 days with more than 10 mm (0.4 in.). Thus, it is practical to carry a small umbrella with you in all seasons 🌧
Below there is also a table with the average temperature in Paris. As you can notice, it’s pretty cold during winter and mostly during January where the average temperature in Disneyland Paris is less than 3.3 Celsius degrees. If you plan to visit Disneyland Paris during these cold months, better be prepared and get yourself warm clothes (wool clothes).
Gloves, scarfs, wollen caps are equally essentials during the cold months ❄
