What To Pack?
Assisted access passes
For guests with special needs Disneyland® Paris will provide assisted access passes to make your visit as easy as possible. These passes mean only one member of your group need to queue and the guests with disabilities can wait until they are ready to ride.
The passes are available to adults or children with physical or mental disabilities. Let us know if you have a member of your group that requires these passes on your room list with details of their disability and we will take care of the rest.
You can rent pushchairs in both the Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios® for a nominal daily fee (around 6 euro’s per day) allowing you to leave your own buggy behind and reducing the luggage you have to carry.
There is a refundable deposit of 150 euro’s to cover breakages.
Be the first through the gates and head straight for the ride of your choice. Don't be distracted by the bubble-gum pink castle, there's plenty of time for that later. Instead, make for the big rides like Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Peter Pan, Buzz Lightyear® etc; that will get busy by midday.
If you can take the pace, stay in the parks as late as you can or come out the parks mid afternoon, go for a rest, then go back a bit later. As sleepy heads go to bed and the French go home (after the parade), queues get shorter and crowds thin, so you can walk straight onto your favourite rides.
Seen the parade before? Target the main attractions while everybody's watching.
Blue Skies aren't guaranteed during low season (Jan-June, Sept-Nov), but quicker access onto the rides more than makes up for the temperamental weather.
Get onto the rides fast with a free FASTPASS®, offered to all visitors. This maximises your time in the parks as you can go straight on the rides with little or no queue.
Parents with tiny tots can get a piece of Disney's® white-knuckle action, by taking advantage of the "Baby Swap".
While the first partner rides, the second waits for them to come back and then it's their turn, without queuing again. Simply mention at the start of the queue that you are two parents with a baby

The Disney® Characters want you to have the best possible experience with them. Don't force children up to a character that they feel uncomfortable with; the characters happy to spend some time making a child feel more at ease.
Most characters can sign autograph books, although if a character signals with its hands or paws when handing them a book, they are probably asking for something to be done (open the book, give the pen first). Make sure you have a clean page opened ready to sign; test the pen works, is turned on and the cap is removed. Characters can hear and see, and most enjoy communicating with guests. They love it if you are wearing a piece of clothing with them on it or are holding a stuffed animal.
