Is it worth going to Paris Disneyland?

Every meter here is an incredible photo opportunity, and each building is right out of your favorite childhood movies! Believe me, it will be a memorable trip for all. Disneyland isn't just for kids: you won't be able to remain indifferent, serious adults in the park! You can find tickets to Paris Disneyland here.

Attraction safety

All the rides in the park are safe. There have been two times in the past 27 years that a ride has gone out of service, but not due to injuries. So don't worry about safety, and just be prepared to have a lot of fun.

How many days do I need?

Many people wonder how much time they need to spend in the park. The first thing to keep in mind is that Disneyland is actually two parks. Each of them will take at least one full day if you want to do everything, and that's if you have no lines. One day is enough for an adult to ride everything, but if you have kids, it's better to take two or three days.

Where is the park?

It's paradoxical, but Paris Disneyland isn't actually in Paris. It's at RER Marne-la-Vallee station in the fifth transport zone. It'll take you 40 to 60 minutes from the center of Paris to Disneyland on public transport, and taxis are a bit faster (you can order one online). There's another option: you can rent a car and not depend on the public transport schedule. You can choose and book a car by using this link.
