Disneyland Paris is located about 30 km east of Paris in Marne-la-Vallee. Disneyland Paris comprises two parks, Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios, as well as 7 hotels, a golf course and Disneyland Village.
We went to Disneyland Paris at the busiest time of year, European and British school holidays, during June. I must admit that we lived in the US for a few years and were fortunate to have visited Disneyland in LA and Disneyworld in Florida, when our kids were younger, so this wasn’t our first ride at the rodeo. Although we did have a good time during our day visit, it does lack the organisation, friendly and exuberant staff of the American Disney, many of the good rides were closed and its a lot smaller. If I’m being honest, our kids, especially the eldest two are probably a bit old to enjoy the magic that comes with visiting with young kids, although they enjoyed the rides they had no interest in seeing the Disney characters or parades. I did take Ava to see the princesses and unlike in America where you get to see all of them, you are led to one for a quick photo but she did speak English among other languages, before you exit, all after a 2 hour wait.
Both my husband and I have very fond memories of the fun we had with the kids at Disney in America and today came the realisation that our kids are growing up. If you are going in the European summer be prepared for queues and have a great time.
