What’s on When at Disneyland Paris

1st June – 13th September

Enjoy a Frozen Summer! Cool characters Elsa and Anna tour the park in a sparkling carriage and invite you to join them and their friends Olaf and Kristoff  in a singalong of all your favourite songs from the film.

1st October – 6th November

Harvest time and Halloween are celebrated throughout the month, with pumpkins galore, a parade of Disney villains, and Mickey’s Magical Bonfire firework extravaganza on 2nd, 4th and 6th November at Lake Disney.


9th November – 7th January

Disney’s Enchanted Christmas and New Year festivities are always popular, and this year the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle will be transformed into an ice palace. Main Street will sparkle with snowflakes and magical decorations, the gigantic Christmas tree will have even more lights, and Santa Claus will be in his workshop until Christmas Eve!

Tips for visitors

  • Dress for the time of the year, as you would in the UK. July can be surprisingly rainy, so bring ponchos and  umbrellas, as well as your sunscreen!  Closed toed flat shoes are best, and bring layers for cooler days and evenings. You might see real snow in winter, as well as the fairy snowflakes, so don’t forget your festive fleece and hat!
  • It’s ok to bring your own snacks with you to save money and time queuing for food. There are plenty of fountains dotted around the parks where you can refill your water bottle. Some coffee lovers bring thermos flasks, saving themselves around 3.50 euros per cup!
  • If your child already has a disney costume, bring it with you, or buy one online before you go, otherwise they’ll see other kids wearing them and pester for the more expensive ones on sale at the parks!
  • Request  the Baby Switch option if you have a child too small for a ride. One adult can ride whilst the other watches the child, then the other can go on as soon as they return.
  • Print out a park map before you go, and note where your “must do” attractions (and the loos!) are situated. Go to the back of the park and work forwards to reduce queuing time.
  • Go on rides when others are watching parades or having lunch. Parades and shows take place throughout the day, and you can have a sit-down meal later when you’re tired and hungry!
  • It’s worth checking out French school holiday times before you book, which are slightly different to the UK, and the dates of the 11 French public holidays.
