When purchasing tickets for Disneyland Paris, you are going to need to understand how the park structures park tickets.

  • MINI TICKET is a weekday ticket (and the cheapest option) 
  • MAGIC TICKET is for weekends 
  • SUPERMAGIC TICKET is for major holidays (the most expensive option).

If you want to get the best price for park tickets to Disneyland Paris DO NOT wait to buy your tickets at the park entrance.

You will pay more.

Your best way to find the best price on Disneyland Paris tickets is to check all of the Disneyland Paris websites.

Yes, there are more than one!

Disneyland Paris has learned the art of capitalism and offers different discounts to targeted countries.

Currently, they have versions of Disneyland Paris ticket sites targeting the United KingdomFranceGermany, and Italy 

Each of these sites offer different ticket discounts. You will need to find the one that has the best deal.

We have found that you are best to purchase either a 2-day Disneyland Paris park ticket or a Park Hopper that allow you to move between the two parks on one day.

While it is possible to do both Disneyland Paris parks in one day, if you have time, choose a two day ticket.

Disneyland Paris Weather

The weather in Disneyland Paris will really depend on the time of year that you go.

Be prepared for rain and when it rains, be prepared for outdoor rides to shut down until the rain is over.

We have been to Disneyland Paris when it rained an entire day and it wasn’t that bad. Just make sure you pack a poncho and you’ll do just fine.

In fact, on the day that it rained, the crowds were much less and we were able to ride just about everything we wanted without having to stand in long queues.

If you come in the off season (Spring & Winter), it is much colder and you will want to wear layered clothing and even might want to bring a pair of gloves since you will be outside much of the time.

Where to Stay at Disneyland Paris

When planning a trip to Disneyland Paris you might need to find a place to stay. While there are several Disney Paris hotels to choose from, there are even more non-Disney hotels minutes away.

Disneyland Paris Hotels

Staying at a Disneyland Paris hotel is quite costly, but when it comes to convenience, it is a clear winner.

The resorts are literally steps away from the entrance to both of the Disneyland Paris parks and to the train station.

We’ve stayed at both Hotel Cheyenne and Sequoia Lodge at Disneyland Paris and both were comfortable.
