Disneyland Paris with toddlers

Are you planning a visit to Disneyland Resort Paris with small children or infants? Then you've come to the right place to find out about some basic things that will make it easier for you and your family.
Since those responsible at Disney always keep an eye on their little guests, the parks and hotels offer a number of services that other amusement parks do not offer in this form.
Here at you will find numerous tips and tricks that will make your stay with toddlers at Disneyland Paris easier.

Disneyland with toddler, is that possible?
That's fine! It's even going very well, because Disneyland Paris is a theme park that is very much geared towards the needs of families. This is primarily because Walt Disney himself strived to create a place where young and old can have fun together. Disneyland Paris is the perfect example that something like this is possible in an amusement park.
From a height of 1.07 meters, most attractions are accessible, except for the wild rides. Many carousels and attractions can also be visited with a smaller body size. There are also various shows and meetings with the Disney characters - here the whole family can have fun, regardless of age.
It is important that you, as a parent, know your child. What can it do, what is it afraid of, when does it need a break and so on.
It is clear that you cannot have a power day with a toddler in the amusement park, as you would perhaps do it without children. You need time, because a lot of things just happen differently than expected and there are always small breaks. So plan your visit, but don't add too many points to the program. This leads to stress and tears are inevitable.

At what age is my child old enough for Disneyland Paris?
It's hard to say in general. We keep hearing from parents who are taking their babies to Disney Parks and are having a wonderful time full of magic.
But when are children really old enough to experience the Disney magic for themselves? There is probably no fixed age, because every child develops differently. But we would say that 3 or 4 years is a perfect age to really have fun at Disneyland Paris.
By the way, children up to the age of 3 years have free entry to both Disney parks, only from the age of 3 years on a ticket for Disneyland Paris is required.

Tour with toddlers through Disneyland Paris?
We have put together a tour that is primarily aimed at visitors with small children. Take a look at the suggestions before you travel, maybe you can benefit from them?!

Tips for parents: Disneyland Paris with small children

  • Be sure to take a stroller with you if your child is still using it intensively. There are rental buggies at Disneyland, but they cannot be adjusted, so there is no space to lay down.
  • Allow time for the pirate caves, tree house, Aladdin's passage, the cave of the dragon and other walkthrough attractions.
  • Take breaks and take enough time for it, because you are on your feet all day, you quickly will walk 10 kilometers and more.
  • Bring drinks and a few snacks for your children. There are many restaurants, but if you like to have something on hand that the little ones definitely eat, then you better pack some things.
  • If you book a Disney hotel, give yourself and your family a break at lunchtime, so you hold out in the evening until the final show.
  • Always have the park map or app ready to quickly find out where the toilet is nearby.
  • Before you visit, get bracelets that can be labeled. Label them with the name of your child and your mobile number. If you lose sight of each other in the bustle of the parks, a cast member can contact you directly.
  • Have change clothes for your kids with you in case of an accident.
