Paris, France


You might have seen that I'm off to Disneyland Paris in a few days and I couldn't be more excited! We're lucky enough to have two days in the park this time however I have done Disneyland in just one day before now. This will be my 5th time to the park and although I'm no expert I have a few tricks when it comes down to getting everything done.

Plan ahead
Hours pass in no time while you're having fun in Disney, so a rough plan of the day is a good idea. Queues can sometimes be 2 hours+ so you might not be able to go on everything. Grab a map and circle the rides you know you want to get on. Do these rides first, that way you have a better chance of getting them all done. The rides I've found that have the longest waiting times are usually - Space Mountain, Rock N Rollercoaster, Tower of Terror, Crushes Coaster, and The Disneyland Railroad (if you get on at main street USA).

Pack a lunch
You'll be queueing for rides all day so there's no point waiting in line for food as well, although I'll be the first to say those Disney hot dogs are a must have. If it looks like you'll be waiting a long time for a ride, why not munch your lunch in the queue? I've done that several times before now.

Dress appropriately
This might be obvious but I've seen women in heeled boots at Disneyland before and believe me they didn't look too fab after hours of stumbling around. You are going to be walking around all day so it's always best to wear comfy shoes. It's also a good idea to wear layers in case you get too hot/ cold. If you are comfortable you should be able to run around Disney all day without needing too many breaks.

The Parade
The Disney Magic on Parade is one of the main aspects of your day in the park. It's usually at around 5:30PM but make sure you check the times in the park guide or by clicking here as they do change with the season. I would recommend getting to Main Street USA around half an hour early to guarantee you get a space at the front. People with children can be ruthless when it comes to getting a spot so make sure you stand your ground!

There are a hell of a lot of shops in the park, you wont be able to avoid them as a lot of rides exit through them but I would recommend not spending too much time browsing these during the park opening times. You will probably be able to buy everything in the Disney Village which is open a lot later than the park itself. There's no point wasting your time shopping when you can pick it up later.

Shop my Disney essentials

So that was about everything I can think of right now. I'd say these tips apply to pretty much any theme park and not just my favourite one! I really hope you guys found these helpful, feel free to leave any of your own tips in the comments!
