That’s why we’ve put together this ultimate guide, so that you have everything covered before the adventure even begins!
What to bring to Disneyland
Packing for a trip isn’t always the most relaxing activity, and while we can’t tell you exactly which clothes to bring, we can help you make sure you bring all your Disney essentials. Here’s everything you’ll need for a delightful time at Disneyland:
Things to do before you arrive
There’s nothing more exciting than planning your trip to Disneyland Paris, but where do you start?
Get the paperwork out of the way
Disneyland is an enchanting place to visit and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy the magic as soon as you arrive. Once you’ve taken the exciting step of booking your tickets, you’ll get a pre-arrival email including your printable booking form. It doesn’t take long to fill in, but if you do this before you arrive at your hotel, it will be one less task in the way of you and your Disney experience.
Plan your meals
You can save time and get to the Disney Parks quicker by pre-booking your meal plan before you arrive, choosing from three tempting options:
- Standard, which gives you access to a delicious buffet menu and a refreshing soft drink
- Plus, which includes everything in the Standard meal plan, as well as a set menu with table service and a Dining with Character experience at Café Mickey
- Premium, in which you’ll get all of the above, plus an a la carte option and the chance to enjoy Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Dinner Show with Mickey and Friends!
No matter which meal plan you choose, you’ll also get a scrummy tea-time treat to enjoy during your stay.
Get ready for show-time!
Even if you don’t go for the Premium meal plan, you can still book tickets to Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in advance. The kids will love joining Sherriff Goofy for dinner in Colonel Cody’s Saloon, where they can get stuck into a spectacular Texan BBQ meal during this epic show. You can even save 10% on certain dates if you book before you travel!
Your journey to Disneyland
There are plenty of ways to reach the spellbinding world of Disneyland, and many can be booked in advance to make your journey as convenient and time-saving as possible!
If you’re travelling by plane…
There is an airport transfer service available on Disney’s Magical Shuttle Bus, which will transport you directly to the gates of Disneyland. If you’d prefer more flexibility, you can also get there via Hertz car service.
If you’re travelling by Eurostar…
You’ll arrive at Marne-la-Vallée Station, which is only a two-minute walk away from the excitement beyond the Disney Parks gates. Travelling with Eurostar also gives you access to Disney Express, which takes care of your luggage so you can skip the hassle and go straight to the Parks to begin your exciting adventure.
