Best price on Disneyland Paris Tickets

Unlike the United States, Europe doesn’t have a ton of discount Disneyland Park ticket brokers.

The only one we’ve found is Attraction Tickets which is based in UK and they will only save you a few pounds.

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.

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.
