Disneyland Paris Tickets
How To Get Tickets
There are several ways to get your hands on those magical Disneyland Paris tickets. Although you can definitely purchase your admission passes directly at the park itself, you will most likely incur long queues prior to entering the park.
Alternatively, you can purchase your passes beforehand via Klook and skip the long ticketing lines to jump straight into the fun! Apart from the hassle-free booking, you can also count on Klook to provide you with the best prices for all your activities - Disneyland Paris included. Book your Disneyland Paris tickets on Klook and enjoy up to 50% off admission tickets.
Types of Disneyland Paris Tickets
As of 2019, there are (3) three available types of Single-Day or Multi-Day Disneyland Paris tickets. The main difference amongst these three are mainly their dates and validity. Read on as we break down the differences of each ticket. You may also refer to Disneyland Paris’ Price Calendar for further understanding.
If you’re visiting Paris Disneyland for just a day, we recommend just picking up a Single-Day MINI/MAGIC/SUPER MAGIC ticket. However, if you plan to stay for 2-3 days at the park, the Multi-Day ticket, which entitles you entry to 2 parks, is the best option!
These tickets can only be used during LOW SEASON dates until its indicated validity date. That said, if you purchased a LOW SEASON date ticket and wish to reschedule, you need to take note that the ticket would only be valid on other LOW SEASON dates. Check the price calendar for MINI/LOW SEASON dates.
The MAGIC ticket on the other hand is only applicable for HIGH SEASON dates. These dates are typically close to the holiday season, and can only be used on other indicated HIGH SEASON dates until the indicated validity date. Check the price calendar for MAGIC/HIGH SEASON dates.
3. SUPER MAGIC
Super Magic tickets give guests access to the park on PEAK SEASON dates, such as Halloween, Christmas, and New Year. Since PEAK SEASON dates are significantly less than the availability of low and high season tickets, you can assume that these cost significantly higher as well. However, with the Super Magic ticket, guests are given an entire year to redeem their passes - on whatever date they wish to use.
If you aren’t absolutely sure of your visit dates, this is the best ticket to purchase!
What time does Disneyland Paris open?

Extra Magic Time
If you’re staying at a Disney Hotel, you’re in luck!
One of the perks Disney Hotel guests can enjoy is what they call Extra Magic Time. On certain days of the week, Disney Hotel guests can enter the park a couple hours earlier, or leave up to two hours later than the normal park hours. However, the duration of the Extra Magic Time would vary depending on the day, and the parks it applies to. Be sure to check Disneyland Paris’ Park Hours for daily updates.

Disneyland Paris Fastpasses
Is the Disneyland Paris fastpass worth it?
Getting through most or all of any Disneyland park’s attractions is close to impossible without the help of a Fastpass.

You can only do this for several attractions, at specific time-frames. But once you’ve got your Fastpasses for a certain attraction, you can now skip through the long queues!

Disneyland Paris Accommodations
Where To Stay Near Disneyland Paris
Depending on your budget, there are several accommodation options for your Disneyland Paris stay. Of course, if you’re opting for a one-day visit, we recommend residing in Paris, France and taking a day trip to the park instead. However, if you’re visiting for at least two days, here are some Disney Hotels we think definitely add to the magic.
B&B Hotel at Disneyland Paris
Although this Disneyland Paris hotel is simple in terms of design, its location definitely makes up for it with its charming French atmosphere!
Disney’s Newport Bay Club
Here at Disney’s Newport Bay Club, every guest is treated like VIPs. With over-the-top room designs to delicious food options, it’s no reason why this hotel is a top pick for most park guests!
Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch
This Disney lodging option brings to life all of our Wild Wild West dreams. Hidden somewhere in the woods are the most charming wooden cabins - perfect for those who love the outdoors!
We would honestly book our stay in Disneyland Hotel simply because of it legitimately looks like a castle (and overlooks Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, too). So if you’ve ever wondered how it would be like to live like a prince or a princess - there’s no better option.
