Consider what attractions you’d like to see/do at Disneyland Paris®

One of the first things to do is make a list of the attractions you’d like to visit. Whether it’s rides, shows or character meetings, note them down to make sure you fit all these into your trip. Take a look at some of the best rides at Disneyland Paris and take your pick. There are some iconic ones to choose from including:

  • It’s a Small World
  • Big Thunder Mountain
  • Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast

Take into account the time of year

Depending on the time of year that you’re heading to Disney, ride queue times can vary. Usually, the queue times are longer during the summer months, typically because families want to explore Disneyland Paris in the sunshine.
