How to visit Disneyland Paris

One of the first questions that come to mind of those who want to visit Disneyland Paris is how much time should be allocated to the theme park. If you want to see Disneyland Paris in your Paris trip and you do not have a special interest and curiosity, 1 full day is enough. If you are planning a trip for your children, stay at least 2 days.

When you come to the gate where the ticket offices are, you will see the entrance turnstiles. When you buy your ticket and enter through the turnstile, you first go through the security screening. Then you have to enter a separate queue for ticket control.

At the entrance of Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland Park, a map and a program of activities to be held that day are given. By reviewing these brochures, you decide which side to start with first.

The park map given at the Disneyland Paris gate entrance contains brief information about all the toys, restaurants, food prices, and the levels of the toys. In the daily program provided with the map, it is stated in which park which activity will be held at which time. Since the parks are very large, you need the map in your hand to avoid getting lost.

On the other hand, it is not possible to visit all the parks in one day, so you have to choose what you like best from the available activities. By examining this information given at the entrance of the park, you can prepare a travel route for yourself by considering which animations, games and activities are available at what time.

You always have to wait in line in Disneyland Paris parks . You can attend the same event multiple times. When you enter an event, it is written on the door how many minutes you have to wait to reach the event from that moment on.
