Visit Disneyland Paris with children

Like every amusement park in the world, the two theme parks at Disneyland Paris attract children. However, many parents hesitate to visit because they do not know whether the amusement park is also suitable for children. Disneyland Paris definitely falls into the category "suitable for children", because there is hardly any other amusement park that offers so much for children - but at the same time the big ones are not forgotten either. To help you spending a perfect day with kids at Disneyland Paris, we've put together some useful information for your Disneyland Paris holiday here.

Some attractions in the two amusement parks are particularly well suited for families and are therefore given special attention here, including of course, Le Carrousel de Lancelot and It's a Small World. Incidentally, the absolute hit with small children is the carousel Dumbo the Flying Elephant, which you shouldn't miss under any circumstances. This actually applies to the entire offer in Fantasyland.

Are you wondering whether a particular attraction is suitable for your child? First of all, of course, you have to consider the size restrictions. If everything fits here, it depends on how daring your child is. Is it more fearful or does it plunge into any adventure? You can certainly assess this best. Many parents have had good experiences by explaining to their child what to expect in the attraction, often children themselves know whether they want to ride a roller coaster that goes upside down or not.
Of course, you can also ride all the attractions yourself first and then decide whether you want to take your child with you or prefer to go on to the next attraction.
Just inform yourself on the individual attraction pages, on which we have put together a lot of information about the respective ride or show.

In addition, Disneyland Resort Paris offers a number of services that are aimed specifically to parents and children, ranging from stroller rental and babysitting services to practical baby switches.

Admisson for children

The entry to the two Disney theme parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios, is free for children under the age of three. They also stay in their parents' room for free at Disney Hotels. If necessary or desired, a baby cot can be provided. From three to eleven years old they will get discounted tickets and can stay in the parents' room for a reduced price.

Eating with children at Disneyland Paris

Children are always welcome at the restaurants at Disneyland Resort Paris, whether it's a fast food or upscale table-service restaurants.
All restaurants have special dishes for the little ones and there are also a high chairs available if needed. In the fast food restaurants in the parks, microwave ovens are available where baby food can be warmed up so that the little ones do not have to do without their usual food.
The children's menus are intended for children aged 3-11 years. Younger children under the age of 3 can eat with their parents free of charge (this rule also applies in buffet restaurants).
In any case, the food in the restaurants of the resort is popular with children, and if a Disney character stops by, the meal becomes a real experience that no one forgets quickly. The princess dinner at the Auberge de Cendrillon is very popular with girls, but the other meals where you can meet the Disney characters are also extremely popular. If you want to visit such a meal with your family, we strongly recommend that you reserve a table well in advance.
