The best attractions for children at Disneyland Paris

If you are traveling to Disneyland Paris with children, the question will certainly come up in advance which attractions are suitable at all. We cannot provide a general answer either, but we would be happy to give you some advice as to which attractions are particularly suitable for which age group.

Great for all ages are the playgrounds that Disneyland Paris offers: Frontierland Playground (formerly: Pocahonta's Indian Village) and Pirate’s Beach. These two playgrounds, which you can find at Disneyland Park, offer enough space and play opportunities.
Gentle boat rides like It's a small world or Le Pays des Contes de Fées are also suitable for all ages.

We have divided our recommendations into three age groups so you can quickly and clearly find the best attractions for you and your offspring. Whether you are in the mood for a carousel, a roller coaster or a great show - at Disneyland Paris it will definitely never be boring!

You must of course decide for yourself whether the attractions mentioned are also suitable for your children; it could be helpful if you look at pictures (and possibly videos) of the attractions together with your kids so they know roughly what they expect there.

The tip: It is advisable to compare the size / age restrictions of the attractions in advance to avoid tears and dissapointment in the park. You can find all the information you need on the page "Access restrictions". There you will find a list of all attractions at Disneyland Paris that have an access restriction.
