We visited Disneyland Paris a few years ago. It was a fun trip. We had the lovely opportunity of exploring the entire park in 2 days and I am seriously looking forward to taking the kids. The kiddies have visited Paris a few times but we have not had the opportunity to take them to Disney. I have been thinking of doing just that and I am hoping we can visit as a family this year.
Disneyland Paris is a dream vacation destination for many families. There is a lot to see and enjoy, and kids love it. I remember watching the parade at night and seeing how excited the kids were. We even had a child next to us, crying in awe as she saw one of her favourite character, I think the character was Minnie Mouse.
Disneyland Paris Tips
If you have plans of visiting the beautiful park, you may find these tips very useful –
Wear comfy shoes
The best shoes to wear to Disneyland Paris are very comfy shoes. I go for flat shoes but not flats. So comfy trainers would work great. There is plenty of walking involved so heels are a no-no if you want to have an amazing time and not focus on uncomfortable shoes that make you want to comfy bare feet.
Go with a crossbody bag or a backpack and camera
The last thing you want to deal with a heavy bag while exploring Disneyland. I prefer to go with a crossbody bag to keep all my valuables. A backpack would work if you are going with younger kids and need to take essentials with you like nappies and change of clothes. Also good to go with a camera if you have one. So you can capture all the amazing memories.
Bring a push chair with you
If you have younger kids, make sure you come with a push chair. Exploring the park can be tiring for young kids, so have a push chair to ferry them around when they get tired is smart. There are push chairs available to hire but they are usually pricey and very basic, so do come with yours if possible and a bike lock.
Take your time
We couldn’t see the whole park in a day. It took us 2 full days to explore the entire park and those days were very long. I would recommend 3 days to explore the whole park and all the fun it brings, especially if you are going with younger kids. You don’t want to rush the experience so best to make the time and enjoy the fun.
The last thing you need is dealing with “hangry” (hungry + angry) toddlers. So make sure you have your children’s favourite snacks at the ready. Also take snacks for yourself if you can as food and drinks can be pricey in the park.
