There are many other rides that you don’t even know about but are literally amazing so you should plan accordingly. Your plan should include the priority list of the rides that you do not want to miss at any cost.

You will definitely have to miss few of them in order to enjoy the priority ride.  You can assemble the list according to your family members like for example priority rides for the kids, priority rides for the adults. Also you should write the activities that you kids and you can enjoy together.

Here are few examples that you can choose for your kids like for instance Alice’s curious Labyrinth, Dumbo the flying elephant, flying carpets, Sleeping Beauty Castle, meeting with their favorite Mickey Mouse etc.  And for yourself you can choose the big thunder mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones and many other.

4- Where to live:

In terms of the accommodation it is suggested for you to stay on a site. People who have visited their already have said that you can only love away from the site if you have the stamina of a mule. The days that you are going to spend at Disney are always long and tiring because you have to rush from one attraction to another.

Going here and there home make you tired but you will realize it at night, not when you are exploring Disneyland. When the time will come and the park would be closed, the only thing you’re the feeling is stress, and you will be exhausted and all you want at that time is your bed. It’s not about just Disney, wherever you go I need a very nice accommodation place that is near to the site.  

Talking about Disneyland here is benefit of staying in the Disney hotels and that is that you don’t have to worry about the parking lots. The Hotels that are providing accommodation at the in complementary buses service that takes you from the resort and bring you back. Another benefit is that you will enjoy the magic time because the guest that stay at the Disney hotel are able into the park earlier than other people.

You are allowed to enter an hour earlier if you are staying at one of the Disney hotels. You have to keep in your mind that during the magic time most of the rides will be closed. But there will be virus that won’t be closed and you can enjoy them without any Rush.

For your convenience there are few examples like the Buzz Lightyear laser blast is one of the rides that will be open in the magical hour.  You will only have to tolerate a 5 minute queue, for in the normal as there is a typical 40 minutes queue.

The example is star wars and Hyperspace Mountain that will be open in the magical hour are you can enjoy those rides without any hurdle. In order to check which rides are open and which are closed you have to go to the information board that is situated in the plaza.  

It is situated right in front of the Sleeping beauty’s Castle where you can find all the information’s about the rides that you can enjoy in the magical hour.

5- You must be worried about the food and snacks:

There are many packages that you can book before going to Disney for instance then Disney has to offer you a package named as “all you can eat Buffet”. It is dependent upon you that which package you go for but you have to request the dining times whenever you arrive at Disney. You should not get shocked that upon reaching there you will still have to struggle for the availability of the restaurants.

It can happen with you so here is the pro tip, book you’re sitting as soon as you reach. Talk about the timings of the breakfast and the breakfast starts at 7 and you also have the opportunity to avail the magic time hour.  It is suggested to book the slot because you will have no other choice. The Studios at Walt Disney open around 8:00 a.m., but you should check the time according to your dates. The Disneyland opens at 8:30 a.m., in case you are a one dream that how much time does it take from the bus depot to the Disneyland, then it’s hardly 5 to 10 minutes’ walk.

So, for the breakfast it is suggested that you should finish it till 7:30 because it is the ideal time if you want to visit the park early.

After enjoying the time at Disney you will have to think about your lunch or we can say dinner. It is recommended to enjoy the snacks while you are visiting the park and enjoying the rides.  The ideal time is around 4:30 or 6:30 that you eat something.

The time you spend over there will be all worth it and by the time that you come back to the place where you are staying all you will want is sleep. In case you want to enjoy a buffet in the parks you can have one there around the hotels. But, in the case of the buffet, you have to do the bookings early because of the limited availability.

6- Pro tip: Do not go for the Two for one park pass:

We are giving you this suggestion because this past is useless unless you have plan to visit only for one day. The two for one park pass is only suitable for the people who are visiting the park for one day and have to get most of the enjoyment in only one day.

If you are planning to go only for one day it is obvious that you won’t be able to see all the attractions, but only if you select advance. It is a recommendation that you will save a few euros if you opting for one Park one day tickets. for instance if you are going for 3 to 4 days then this pass will allow you to visit both Park every day, this will allow you to see all the attractions and get some rest as well.

The travelers always suggest to visit Disneyland for few days because it’s never enough.

7- Consider the usage of fastpass:

Before you are planning to visit to Disneyland you should know about this fact that they are many of the attractions at the Disneyland Paris do support the fast pass. The concept of the fast pass is same as the concept of the tokens that you get at some restaurant or Bank. To make it more clear, this concept can be explained that when you are going for rides you get a token number. But, with the help of the fastpass you get a pre-designated time, they will be printed already on your fast pass. The purpose of getting this fast pass is that you do not have to wait in the rush while you are going to take the rides.  

The time printed on the first pass in shows that you have to return back to the attraction at that time, and it says you from waiting in the queue. Why we are recommending to get the fast pass is that it helps you in two ways.

The one way is that it does save your time why you want to go on the rides, because you do not have to wait in the queue because there is already a pre designated time mentioned on your fast pass. The second way is that the time you have saved by utilizing the fast pass can be used in taking the other rides that you might have missed due to the rush.

In order to get the fastpass, all you have to do is insert to Disneyland ticket into the cost of the machine, you can find the fastest machine near the attraction and you will get the time printed. It is very suitable for those people that are visiting Disneyland for only one day or two.

The shop is situated right after the entrance of the Disneyland Park. When you enter the Disneyland Park and go towards the Disney studio that is the time and you have to submit the store back.

9- Staying up late , enjoying the nights:

This is possible when you do not have kids along with you, or you can drop off the kids at the hotel if you feel safe. But it is highly recommended to stay up late and enjoy the night at Disneyland Paris. We are saying this because the fun is not over, most of the people think that the one is over as soon as the fireworks have fizzled out. But this is not the reality because when the kids of the park have closed for the evening you should go to the Disney village because you will get the late night excitement over there.

Other options are that you can definitely get a concert at Billy Bob’s country western saloon.  There are many other options to enjoy the night like you can have a cold Brew at laid-back Sports Bar. A trip to Disneyland does not mean that you should only see the cartoon characters but you can also go and watch movie at Gaurmont cinema complex.

Also, most of the time Disneyland is following the seasonal themes which can make you lucky if you visit there.
