3 Great Times To Visit Disneyland Paris


Disneyland Paris is one of our favourite places in the whole wide world. Even as adults, here in the Abbey Travel office, we ADORE going back for a visit. As for our children, the night before we leave for Disneyland Paris is like Christmas Eve on the excitement scale.

We have lots of mammies and daddies coming in to visit us in the Abbey Travel office, knowing they want to visit Disneyland Paris but unsure about the best times to visit.

Fear not, based on our extensive knowledge of Disneyland Paris, here are our three favourite times to visit the magic:

Christmas begins early at Disneyland Paris, running from November 10th and until January 6th. You can add that extra sparkle by spending time with your family in Disneyland Paris during the Christmas season festivities. You can take our word for it; it is nothing short of spectacular.

You will be dazzled by the exquisite Christmas decorations and sparkling lights as you walk through the magical paths that make up Disneyland Paris. But don’t be surprised if your kids’ smiles are the most dazzling things you see – we can guarantee their excitement will be off the scale!

Disney’s twinkling and glittering Once Upon A Dream Christmas parade is a real treat. Not to mention your kids will get to see and meet all their favourite Disney characters in their finest Christmas attire. They will also have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus in Santa Claus Village. You’d better have the camera charged for all these photo opportunities!

Don’t worry; they haven’t forgotten the Christmas tree! When you book a Christmas-themed bedroom you get the whole package: a magical Christmas tree, sparkling decorations and even a little gift or two!

Even though Disneyland is tucked away in Paris, it still celebrates along with rest of the world. Yes, at Disneyland Paris, even Paddy’s Day is celebrated in style.

The trademark Disneyland Paris castle goes green, as a superb St. Patrick’s Day parade marches through the park. All the main characters will be dressed in green with traditional Irish and Celtic music in the air. Just imagine a kind of enchanted world ruled by the Irish and you’ll get the idea! To finish off the celebration in style, there is a special St. Patrick’s Day fireworks display at the end of the day – you can probably expect some green at that too!



Another great time to visit Disneyland Paris is February.
