Experience the Magic of Disneyland Paris with Kids

Imagine shaking Mickey’s hand and inviting him to dinner. That’s the kind of magical experience you can expect when you visit Disneyland Paris with your kids.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Disneyland is an unforgettable experience. As you walk down Main Street, the air is filled with joyous Christmas music. Everywhere you look, you’ll see twinkling lights, festive decorations, and a towering Christmas tree. Even the biggest Scrooge can’t help but feel a little skip in their step.

But with such a vast park to explore (including the Disney Studios), where should you start? To help you plan your next visit, here are the top 5 attractions for little kids in Disneyland Paris.

1. Ratatouille: The Adventure

This is my personal favourite! Ratatouille: The Adventure is a thrilling combination of VR and 3D. You’ll hop into a carriage shaped like a rat and embark on an exciting journey through Chef Skinner’s kitchen. As you’re transformed into a rat, you’ll experience an adventure like no other. Both Floris and Lotte loved it, with Floris excitedly recounting how he got wet from the champagne bottle the rats opened.

2. Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast

This is Kev’s top pick. Why? Because you get to shoot with a laser gun! Buzz Lightyear is in trouble, and you’re his only hope. You’ll board a carriage and shoot at enemies throughout the ride, helping to bring the space mission to a successful end. Floris found it a bit thrilling but great fun. Meanwhile, Lotte snoozed through the entire adventure in her baby carrier.

3. It’s a Small World

It’s a Small World is a favourite among kids. This ride takes you on a boat journey around the world, showcasing various countries from the Netherlands to India and Africa. Be prepared for the catchy tune of ‘It’s a Small World’ to be stuck in your head all day.

4. Casey Jr. Circus Train

The Casey Jr. Circus Train is a delightful blend of a train and a slow rollercoaster. Modelled after the train from the ‘Dumbo’ film, this ride takes you through a miniature world featuring various scenes from Disney films. Despite the snow obscuring some of the landscapes, the train ride itself is a hit with the kids.

5. Les Voyages de Pinocchio

Les Voyages de Pinocchio is a charming dark ride that takes you through familiar scenes from the Disney classic “Pinocchio”. Although the narration is in French, the captivating visuals are enough to keep the kids engaged.

Visiting Disneyland with kids at New Year is a truly magical experience. There are numerous other rides suitable for young kids, stunning shows to watch, and the grand parade at park closing. Don’t forget to capture a memorable photo of your kids with their favourite Disney character!
