Preparing for a visit to Disneyland Paris can be exciting, but it can also be stressful if you’re not well-prepared. In order to fully enjoy your day at the theme park, it’s important to know the essential items to bring along. Whether you’re a seasoned visitor or it’s your first time, my guide will help you remember everything for a successful day at Disneyland Paris.

If you’re planning to spend a day at Disneyland Paris, you should prepare for a magical and exciting experience. However, with so much to see and do in this theme park, it can be easy to overlook some important details that could spoil your day. To help you remember everything, here’s an essential checklist for spending a day at Disneyland Paris.

My checklist related to organizing your day

Tickets: Make sure you have purchased your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment, as it’s no longer possible to buy tickets at the park. You can now only purchase them online.

Opening Hours: Check the park’s opening and closing hours before heading there. You can also verify the schedules for shows, parades, and character meet-and-greets to plan your day accordingly.

Character Meet-and-Greets: If you want to meet Disney characters, plan in advance to know where and when they will be present in the park. I recommend downloading the official Disneyland Paris app for real-time information.

Weather: Check the weather to know how to dress and bring spare clothing if necessary.

Transportation: Plan your route to Disneyland Paris in advance and allow enough time to arrive on time. You can use public transportation, take a taxi, or use your own car.

Meals: Remember to book a table in advance (at least 1 month) at one of the many restaurants in the park to ensure you have a spot, or alternatively, save time by opting for click-and-collect on the day of your visit. You can also prepare your own meal if you prefer.

My checklist of equipment not to forget

Backpack: A backpack is essential for carrying all your personal items such as your wallet, cell phone, keys, water bottle, snacks, camera, rain poncho, etc. Be sure to choose a comfortable and practical backpack for moving around the park.

Water Bottle: A water bottle with water to hydrate yourself throughout the day is crucial. This will also save you from queuing to buy drinks.

Umbrella or Poncho: If rain is forecasted, bring umbrellas to protect yourself. Ponchos can also be handy.

Sunglasses and Hat: If you’re visiting Disneyland Paris during the summer months, make sure to bring a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun, as well as sunscreen especially for the younger ones.

Portable Charger: If you plan to spend a full day at Disneyland Paris, you’ll likely need to recharge your cell phone. Bring a portable charger with your external battery to ensure you don’t run out of power.

First Aid Kit: Packing a few medications in your bag is also a good idea to prepare for any eventuality. You can, for example, include medications for headaches, stomach aches, and blisters.

By following this checklist, you’re all set for a magical and unforgettable day at Disneyland Paris. Make the most of it, don’t forget to take lots of photos to remember these unique moments and share them with me on Instagram.
