Here are the 8 essential tips for your first Disneyland Paris vacation:

1 ✦ Pay Attention To Discounts And Deals

Deals, discounts, and offers are marketing tools used by many businesses.

Indeed, this park also uses this strategy for the fans who have a burning desire to jump right into the bandwagon and enjoy the experience.

This strategy makes you feel like you are getting the most value for your money, while at the same time you will have a great time in the park.

2 ✦ Check The Refurbishment Schedule

Certainly, I don’t think anyone would be happy to get to the park and then realize that the attraction they were excited to experience, is under renovations.

The visitors to the park are actually informed of the scheduled refurbishment.

Practical Information

The ride refurbishment list can be found on the official website.

5 ✦ Download The Disney App

This app has all the useful information about the park.

This includes from checking the waiting time, to reserving FastPass, and to making dinner reservations, just to mention but a few.

The App is an incredible tool and a source of information.

I would recommend that if you are planning to visit Disneyland Park in Paris, that you download the App and learn how to use it.

6 ✦ There Is A Train Station Nearby

Unless you are traveling from the other countries in Europe, the personal or rental car is not a necessity in your vacation to this park.

This is because the park is located next to the train station at Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy. This is conveniently served by Thalys/TGV/Eurostar trains.

Last but not least, if you use the train, and you are staying in one of the Disney’s hotels, they offer services to bring the bags to the hotel. Thus, you can directly start enjoying the park.

Last but not least the Disney owned hotels are also all within walking distance to the parks.

If you are staying in one of the Disney owned hotels, you can also hop on a bus which is free of charge. Without a doubt, this makes the logistics of the Disneyland Paris vacation easy.
