Tips For A Magical Christmas At Disneyland® Paris

  • After a long day at the park, what could be better than enjoying a unique fun-filled dining experience! The tables at the restaurants in Disneyland® Paris sell like hotcakes so make sure you book well ahead of time on the Disneyland® Paris App.
  • Make sure to visit the decorated boutiques and tick off the items on your Christmas gift list! La Boutique du Château and Merlin l’Enchanteur are two shops dedicated to Christmas decorations.
  • It's a good idea to layer up and wear warm winter clothes. Specifically, bring hats, scarves and gloves.
  • One of the biggest highlights of visiting Disneyland is the interaction you'll get to have with iconic characters like Mickey, Donald and others. In reality, this interaction becomes a little difficult because of the massive queue. To avoid this, you can book character dining which involves a meal at Inventions where you can individually meet 5-7 main characters from the Disney catalogue.
  • With two parks and over 50 attractions, it can be difficult to see everything in one day, and you'll be truly spoilt for choice at Disneyland® Paris. To avoid wasting time figuring out which rides and attractions to experience at the park, do all the planning before your visit. Want to experience as much of Disneyland as possible? Get to the most popular rides. This handy pass gives you quick access to the rides, helping you save precious time.
  • If you're staying in one of the main Disney Hotels, you'll be able to enter the theme park one hour before the gates open for public. Labelled Disney Magic Hours, this one hour early access is great since the park is pretty empty at that time and you can go for the popular rides without having to wait in queue.
  • During Christmas, Disneyland hosts various spectacular parades and lights at the end of the day. Do find the perfect spot to watch the parade, arrive at least 30 minutes before it's scheduled to begin. One good spot is at the bottom of Main Street, opposite Casey's Corner.
