Disneyland Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallée, about 30-45 minutes away from the center of Paris. It offers 2 theme parks as well as an entertainment area called Disney Village. All within easy walking distance. We are huge Disneyland Paris fans! It has amazing attractions and takes care of even the smallest details.
This year we visited Disneyland Paris in October, during Halloween. We were served with plenty wickedly fun surprises. BooOOoo! Such a fun place! Our favorite rides? Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Phantom Manor, Big Thunder Mountain and Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast.

The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands show
Inside the reborn Frontierland Theater you are wowed from song to song through the musical hits of Disney’s The Lion King. Dancers, acrobats and singers bring back the musical enchantment of this Disney animation Classic. Access to this show is included with a valid entry to Disneyland Park, however places are limited. To be sure to see this incredible show, you can secure your seat for a fixed price. Don’t miss it!
We just can’t get enough of this fun park. But we are not the only one. It can be a very crowded place. If you want to avoid lines, be at the entrance gates the minute the park opens. Or stay at one of the onsite Disney hotels and get there even earlier with the extra Magic Hours. Disneyland Paris is least crowded from opening until about 11:30 am or so. If your party doesn’t mind riding the busy attractions separately, opting for the single-rider line will usually spare you from lengthy wait times. Disneyland Paris retired its complimentary Fast Pass program and start charging those who wish to have quicker access to attractions with Premier Access.
Walt Disney Studios Park
Don’t forget to discover the magical world of cinema and television at Walt Disney Studios Park. It’s a great park with the best shows. Ratatouille, Tower of Terror and the Crush’ Coaster are our favorites!
Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel
Lots to see, plenty to do! So stay for at least two days and book one of the amazing Disney hotels for the ultimate Disneyland experience. We were fortune enough to stay at the renovated Disney’s Hotel New York. More than a hotel, A Manhattan and Marvel masterpiece – This metropolitan New York-style hotel hosts the world’s largest collection of Marvel artwork with over 350 stunning original works by 110 international artists. With unique experiences such as Super Hero Station and Marvel Design Studio, Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel is the perfect place to stay for Marvel fans of all ages. Take a dip in the Metro Pool, train like an Avenger, stop by the New York shop and discover the cosmopolitan tastes of New York in one of the restaurants. The hotel is located just a short walk from the Disney Village. We absolutely loved this hotel!
There are other hotels as well. You’ll find Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Newport Bay Club, Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne, Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch, Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe and Disney’s Sequoia Lodge.
