We have just got back from Disneyland Paris – it was our second visit, but this time we had wall to wall sunshine instead of wall to wall rain! We learnt some fantastic tips from different books and online and want to share our top, absolute must do tips with you.
Pickle says….We had the BEST time! I just LOVED it. A lot of my dreams came true, including meeting Buzz Lightyear and Belle. Our full review is coming soon, we just want to share our top tips for visiting Disneyland Paris:
*Buy your entry tickets before you leave the UK. Attraction Tix have the best prices, great service and email you vouchers to print off and simply exchange for the ticket at the park entrance. You also get some food discount vouchers.
*Watch the main parade from near It’s a Small World ride. You will get a great spot at an hour before the parade and see the parade as it starts. As soon as it has passed you can explore the park and head for usually busy rides. The best way to have the least waiting time. The perfect spot is on the left side as you walk up to It’s a Small World. The Princesses and Princes walked up this street after the Starlit Waltz too! Bonus!
*Take empty water bottles and mini squeezy squash bottles. Fill up at the water fountains near each toilet building – it is fine to drink and always cold! Free squash for everyone. (So many people were doing this).
*Take snacks in a rucksack. We had crisps, Pringle type tubes take up less room, breakfast bars, raisins, biscuits (not chocolate), and individually wrapped pain au chocolate. We saw others with sandwiches, breadsticks, fruit etc. We ate whilst queueing up for rides or meet and greets – saving so much time and money.
*Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland do not have their Fastpass systems connected, so you can hold one for each park at the same time. It is a 15 – 20 minute walk between the centre of each park.
*After the main parade so many people leave the park. The teens walked on so many big rides with barely a queue such as HyperSpace Mountain, Phantom Manor and we all walked straight onto Star Tours and the Snow White ride.
*After the Illuminations, the shops stay open later – this is the best time to shop with virtually no queues whilst the main volume of people leave. We drove straight out of the park with no delays.
Are you visiting Disneyland Paris, or have you been? We are hoping to visit again before Christmas 🙂
