If you are looking for a romantic trip to Paris, you may be considering a trip to Disneyland Paris. Disneyland Paris is easy to get to from anywhere in Paris, making it worth considering for your trip.
So after you have seen the Eiffel tower and spent some time in the Louvre, consider making your way to Disneyland Paris for a fun day together.
Where is Disneyland Paris Located?
Most couples visiting Paris will find Disneyland Paris easily accessible by metro.
The park is located about 20 miles east of Paris in Marne-la-Vallée. The closest metro station to Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy, which is right outside the gates of the park.
Depending on where you are coming from you will likely take your closest metro line to connect with the RER line, costing a total of 5€ and taking around 40 mintutes to an hour.
How Long To Spend in Disneyland Paris
If you are accustomed to Disney World, know that Disneyland Paris is a lot smaller. You will need 2 days in Disney if you want to ride every ride, but for most people, 1 day will be fine to split between both parks. Make sure you purchase one-day park hopper passes so you can visit both parks on the same day.
We arrived at 10 am and left at 7 pm, having ridden most of the rides. We actually recommend arriving later in the day so you can last till 11 pm to catch the fireworks show. We will also say that the Avengers Campus will be opening soon which will add to the time you need to see everything.
This is our personal opinion based on the fact that we are ok missing some of the rides, we do not wait in line to meet characters, and the fact that we just do not have the energy anymore to go a full 10-11 pm day in the park.
One other thing I will say is that Disneyland Paris lacks the variety of food and drinks we see at the US parks, making it less attractive to stick around for multiple meals.
With that in mind, the perfect day for us would be arriving around 1 pm. This will get you on your first ride by 2. Soon the families will be leaving to give the kids a chance to rest and you can last until well into the night.
Things To Do For Couples At Disneyland Paris
There are plenty of things for couples to do at Disneyland Paris. Here are some of our favorites.
Ratatouille – You can’t miss the Paris original, Ratatouille. This is a 4D dark ride that simulates being shrunk down to the size of a rat. You’ll race through Gusteau’s kitchen on a wild adventure.
Pirates of the Caribbean – This classic ride has been updated with Jack Sparrow and a bit more of a “splash” than the Pirates of the Caribbean rides at the US Disney parks.
Disney D-light – This is special nighttime event that includes spectacular drone light choreography that illuminates the sky over Sleeping Beauty Castle as if by magic, followed by the spectacular Disney Illuminations.
Disney Illuminations – This is the nighttime spectacular at Disneyland Paris. You’ll want to make sure you see it before you leave.
Visit Phantom Manor – We love that it is not called Haunted Mansion, but that is how we know it coming from the US.
Interspace Mountain – Space mountain is rethemed to create a Star Wars adventure.
Go for a horse-drawn streetcar ride down Main Street U.S.A.
Sleeping Beauty Castle – See the stained glass windows & have a wonderful view of Fantasyland.
Have a break with a tea time moment at the Victoria’s Home Style Restaurant.
Dine at Bistrot Chez Rémy where you can feast on French-inspired cuisine while Remy from Ratatouille scurries around the restaurant. And make sure you get restaurant reservations before you come. They can be booked well before your visit.
Crush’s Coaster – This is a fast-paced roller coaster located in Walt Disney Studios Park. We actually did not go on this ride because of the wait, but if you are smarter than us, you will stay till later in the day and enjoy the ride.
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror – If you’re looking for a thrill, ride the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. This ride drops you 13 stories!
