1. Paris is the Romance Capital of the World

Paris is known around the world as the “City of Love.” Add a dash of Disney magic, and tickets to Disneyland Paris may be the perfect couples vacation. From the fairytale setting of Sleeping Beauty Castle, a ride on “it’s a small world” there are plenty of places to steal a quiet moment together.

To really up the romance factor, combine your Disneyland package vacation with time in the city of Paris itself. The Disney theme parks are just a short trip from the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre Museum.

2. Convenient Transportation by Train, Bus, Taxi, or Shuttle

Getting to Disneyland Paris is easy whether you start your trip in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, or London. The Eurostar train service can connect you across Europe in a matter of hours. Take the Eurostar to Lille Europe station and change to the TGV high-speed train, which will bring you to the station right at the Disneyland Paris entrance.

From both the center of Paris and nearby airports, the Disneyland parks are accessible by bus. The Disneyland Paris Express will take you back and forth from the Eiffel Tower, Paris Opéra, or Gare Du Nord train station. The Magical Shuttle can transport you to and from Disneyland Paris and the Paris Orly or Paris Charles De Gaulle airports.

3. Attractions Fit for Thrill Seekers

While Disneyland vacation packages are ideal for families and children, there are plenty of breathtaking rides and attractions to thrill adult visitors. Whether you’re an adrenaline lover or just like a bit of excitement, there are lots to choose from.

One ride sure to delight grown-up guests is the Tower of Terror. This attraction is a Disney classic and one of the most popular. Thrill-seeking visitors will love the free fall elevator ride, the ghost story, and the shaft creatures that take control of your fate. Roller coaster enthusiasts will also enjoy the looping Avengers Assemble Flight Force, Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain, Crush’s Coaster, and the Toy Story RC Racer.

If your taste leans toward spooky scares, you’ll love the haunted Phantom Manor and Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains, or Snow White’s Scary Adventures. This attraction gives you a peek into the evil queen’s mirror and on a minecart adventure through the dark forest.

4. Savor Foodie Ambiance

Disneyland Paris's palate is a little more grown-up than you might expect. Between the two parks, hotels, and Disney Village, you'll find an impressive array of table service restaurants, quick service stops, buffets, and grab-and-go snack bars.

Disneyland Paris offers exceptional culinary options, including homemade dishes, bold flavors, organic products, and menus to suit more adventurous tastes. Reserve a table for Middle Eastern and Morrocan food at Agrabah Café, fine French dining at the banquet hall Auberge de Cendrillon, or get a rat's POV at Parisian Bistrot Chez Rémy.

For adults who want to indulge in French libations during their meal, beer, fine wine, and Champagne are offered at most restaurants and food stations. Set food and wine pairing menus are also available at Manhattan Restaurant in The Art of Marvel..

Staying at a Disneyland resort hotel keeps you close to the magic. Your party can jump on a convenient shuttle to get to and from the parks or even walk the short distance. While Disneyland hotels are convenient for any trip to Disneyland Paris, adult visitors will enjoy some of the more luxurious amenities.

Visitors staying in a Disneyland hotel can enjoy Extra Magic Time, which allows entry to the parks before they are open to other guests. Adult guests may also want to take advantage of the hotel spa services, salon treatments, and fitness facilities.
