Worth it for my disneyland paris christmas vacations?

• You like lights, christmas atmosphere and you want to see the Disney’s fantillusion? It’s the best times to go. The sun sets sooner in winter (5 pm) so your toddlers and young kids tired can see it.

• Don’t be afraid of the frozen condition? It’s the best time: all the familly will be gone after 7pm: no queue.

• Scared about the freezing condition? You won’t be alone and waiting outdoor with the kids could be difficult. Some tips to help you:

- Visit the walt disney studios when it’s rainy and very cold: most of the indoors attractions are in this park.

- Give priority to the indoor rides. Most of the rides are open (except Autopia in Discoveryland and River Rogue Keelboat in Frontierland). At freezing time, i have seen the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril closed.

- use the Disney hotel fastpass or the VIP fastpass to avoid the queue

- book you restaurant before leaving: (+33)1 60 30 40 50 - to get warm: parades and some shows are outdoor. Schedule a chocolate-coffee-break after or an indoor rides. Don’t forget the scarf, gloves and warm shoes.... Or choose a restaurant with a fire-place.

- Disneyland hotel (on the right side): the only one where you can see the fireworks in a warm place (the other hotels are definitely too far).
