Main Street U.S.A.

Main Street offers hours of entertainment, known for its famous parades, shops, and restaurants. You can spend hours on this street alone, though your wallet will become significantly lighter the further down the street you walk.

You can explore the park in one day, though it is advised to take the time to plan your trip, prioritising any attractions you don't want to miss. We have put together some useful hints and tips to ensure your visit is maximised.

Early birds catch the worm and this is true when exploring Disneyland Paris. Arrive early to bear the crowds. It's common for the gates to open before the official opening times. This gives you access to prime spots when the rides start. If you enjoy being in the front seat of a roller coaster, then arrive early to secure your spot

If you want to fill your day with rides, then it's advisable to purchase a FAST PASS. Yes it is a little on the expensive side, but it can be a useful tool to reduce your queuing time, enabling you to ride as many rides as you wish throughout the day

It's recommended on arrival to make your way right to the back of the park and make your way back towards the entrance. This strategy is valuable, enabling you to gain access to rides with short queues and having you closer to the gates when your children start tiring, making it quick and easy to exit when you need to.
