We’re going to Disneyland! Cue the jumping around and ensuing madness as kids and adults alike go crazy at the prospect of visiting Mickey Mouse and friends. Whether your Disneyland Paris tickets are for New Years Eve, for Christmas or maybe a family holiday at another time of the year, you’re sure to have a memorable experience. You will find a lot of information online about prices varying but essentially, a ticket is €88, but don’t worry, we’ll look at how to bring the price down!
There are a number of different tickets available when you’re looking into visiting Disneyland and you can save some money if you find out which is the best for you. When there are different prices depending on variables it can be a little frustrating. We’ll try to break this down as simply as possible so you can decide which is the ticket for you. We’ll also take a look at ways to get to the park as Disneyland Paris is found quite a way outside the city center, 32km in fact.
Something people sometimes consider when going to Disneyland Paris is WHEN to go. By this I mean, do we go this year? Maybe next year they’ll open up a new ride? Well…
Let me put your mind at ease as we’ve done the research for you!
Until the year 2024 there won’t be any huge developments (they will roll out a new Frozen themed area then). But you didn’t find this page to plan a holiday in six years time! So if you’re thinking to go this year or next, to be honest, it doesn’t really make a difference!
Disneyland Paris has a ton of activities that can keep you happily exploring the park for a good few days going at a leisurely pace. When you think of Disneyland you will, of course, think about the parades, meeting characters, amazing rides but don’t forget the food! There are a ton of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy some delicious food whether you want to help yourself at the buffet, a ‘fast & hearty’ burger, a wild west dinner show or even… A meal with Mickey Mouse himself!
We must begin by telling you to BUY YOUR DISNEYLAND PARIS TICKETS ONLINE. Buying online can save you €20!
As a friend of ours found out to his cost when he decided to buy at the park. He ended up spending €86 on a ticket at the gate whereas the rest of our group paid around €65. A big difference to travelers or families with kids, €20 saved! (Or that can be spent on other things!) Be sure to take a look at the deals on offer down below!
Are there different types of tickets? But which one is right for me? Let’s take a look and find out:
There are 3 types of tickets for Disneyland Paris:
The different types of tickets for Disneyland refer to visiting times. If you have the mini ticket you can visit the park during the weekday. The Magic ticket grants you access to the park on weekends and the Supermagic ticket allows you to access the park on holidays such as Christmas, Halloween etc (so this is the one you’ll be going for if you want to spend Christmas at Disneyland Paris!).
Have you made your choice? Great. Now we need to pick whether you want a 1-day pass or multi-day. Needless to say this all depends on your situation. If you’re an experienced traveler on a trip with a travel buddy you can probably be efficient enough to get to see everything you want in a single day.
Anyone with a four or five person family with kids can forget about getting this done in one day! Kids desperate to meet characters, queue for rides as well as the time it takes to quell those pesky family arguments that are only 99% certain to happen. All in all we would recommend the multi-day pass anyway, the parks are enormous and it’s nice to be able to take your time strolling through, even stopping for a nice long lunch. So when the arguments break out or people are feeling tired and need a break, there's plenty of time!
First off, now you have your Disneyland Paris tickets in hand, you need to know how to get here. Unless you’re a millionaire, you’ll arrive by road or rail (helicopter is out of the question for most of us!).
The trains in Paris that take you to Disneyland are great, I’ll explain why. It’s a double-decker. For me, a train with two floors was amazing, more seats so travelers are crammed in like sardines. Plenty of space for me and my friends to sit and relax and get excited about our trip.
The destination you’re searching for (it doesn’t say Disneyland train station sadly), is Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for this stop! Although its only 2 minutes walk from the Disneyland gates so you won’t miss it.
This is my preferred method to get to the park as there’s no searching for parking, just a relaxing journey.
Disneyland Paris is located far outside the city center, although getting here is really straightforward. There are road signs all along the motorway, you’ll find the park on the street ‘Boulevard de Parc’ in the town of Serris/Coupvray.
Parking is free if you’re staying at the hotel but if not it can be as much as €45! This is why we recommend getting the train if you’re not staying at one of the park’s hotels.
