To ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience, it's essential to pack smartly and come prepared to any Disney resort. In this ultimate Disney packing guide, specifically tailored for UK travellers, we'll provide valuable tips and recommendations on what to pack for your Disneyland Paris holiday, including essential items and what Tripp Disneyland Paris Suitcases and luggage to take to enhance your travel experience.


Packing For The Park

Essential Clothing For Disneyland Paris

When it comes to clothing, packing season-appropriately is crucial. Disneyland Paris experiences different seasonal weather conditions throughout the year, so it's important to check the weather forecast and pack accordingly. From comfortable t-shirts and shorts for warm summer days, to layered clothing and jumpers/cardigans for cooler seasons, plan your outfits to ensure comfort and flexibility. Many visitors dress up in Disney-themed clothing whilst visiting the theme park, but it’s important to note that Disney does not allow adults to wear full costumes. So why not combine Disney character clothing colours and a print t-shirt for a similar effect! After all, costumes can be quite restricting, especially when a lot of walking is involved. Poncho’s are a great choice for sudden rain; they are readily available in shops across the park, or bring your own. Whilst rain may appear during your trip, it won’t ruin your holiday due to the countless attractions and things to do that are protected against the rain.


Comfortable Shoes For Disney: The Magic Key To Queuing And Walking!


Comfortable Shoes For Disneyland Paris

Comfortable shoes for Disneyland Paris are a must-have! Comfort should be your top priority as you roam the park. With long hours of walking and standing in queues, your feet will thank you for footwear that offers optimal support and cushioning. Trainers are one of the best shoes for Disney walking and will provide stability, shock absorption, and durability to keep your feet happy throughout the day. 

Slip-on shoes, such as walking sandals, are also great alternatives for those who prefer a more casual and relaxed style. These shoe types often feature more breathable materials, and with their flexible designs, sandals and flip-flops allow your feet to stay cool and comfortable, especially on warmer days.

Whatever shoes for Disney you choose, opt for supportive footwear that can withstand hours of walking and standing in lines to ensure your visit to this enchanting realm of magic and imagination isn't spoiled by sore feet! 


Adventure Awaits: Enchanting Essentials For Disneyland Paris 

 

Read on to discover the must-have personal items, money options, cameras, and more for your trip to Disneyland Paris. Let's dive in and make your adventure memorable for all the right reasons!

 

Bags & Rucksacks 

Choosing the right bag for visiting Disneyland Paris is essential. You will be spending a long time walking and queuing at the theme park, so ensure you have all your important items to hand and that they are comfortable to carry while still looking stylish. 


You will want a bag that is spacious enough to fit essentials, such as water, snacks, sunscreen, camera, phone, wallet and souvenirs, but not too bulky or heavy that it will weigh you down or get in the way of enjoying attractions. You will also want a secure and easy-to-access bag so you don’t have to worry about losing your valuables or wasting time looking for them. One backpack ideal for Disney available from Tripp is part of our Style Lite collection, which, as the name suggests, offers you everything from comfort to practicality. Whilst it can be used as a laptop bag, it is a great all-rounder with plenty of back support and functional organisation. With its five-star reviews, our Style Lite Laptop Backpack is an excellent choice for Disneyland Paris. 

 

Embrace the Puddles And Pixie Dust: Rain Gear For Disney

Don’t let the rain slow you down! Be prepared with practical yet fun items for you and your family, with Disney-inspired ponchos and rain jackets to raise a smile if the rain clouds set in.


Rain Gear For Disneyland Paris

Opt for waterproof footwear to ensure comfortable and dry feet throughout your park adventures. Most wellies are not designed for walking long distances, so the usual go-to footwear doesn't apply at Disneyland Paris (even if they have Minnie Mouse on the side!) 

Remember to pack a compact umbrella, as unexpected showers can occur even on sunny days, so they can help keep a magical day magical. If you are expecting a lot of rain, keeping your electrical items and smaller personal possessions, such as documents, in plastic bags or pouches will keep them safe from water damage. Packing your Disney park bag with rain gear will help you make the most of your time and even embrace the wet weather. 


Sunshine And Smiles: Sun Protection At Disneyland Paris

Sun protection is essential in the very often sunny kingdom of Disneyland Paris. Pack a high-SPF sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. Remember to wear a hat or cap, and sunglasses, for extra protection and to keep you cool under the sun, especially for those with young family members. 

 

Your Passport To Adventure: Personal Items And Documents

Ensure you have all the necessary ID and travel documents during your trip to Disneyland Paris and your days out. Being able to easily and securely find important documents will ensure a smooth journey and an enjoyable entry to Disneyland Paris. This includes passports, ID cards, travel insurance documents, and required visas. Keep them safe and easily accessible in a backpack or in a travel bag or carry-on case whilst travelling,

 

Capture The Moment: Camera And Memory Cards

Capture the magical moments of your Disneyland Paris adventure with a camera. Whether you prefer a DSLR or a smartphone, ensure enough storage to save your unforgettable experiences with memory cards or phone internal storage. After all, who wants to spend their time in the magic kingdom deleting old photos? Not us. 


Disney Memories: Bring An Autograph Book And Pen


Disney Memories - Autograph Book

An autograph book and pen are a delightful addition to your packing list. Collect signatures from beloved Disney characters and create lasting memories. An autograph book is a fantastic way to engage with the characters and capture their personal touch in a unique keepsake. Characters at Disneyland Paris often personalise their autographs with special messages or drawings, making each one unique and memorable.

So, remember to pack an autograph book when visiting Disneyland Paris. It's a wonderful way to capture the enchantment and create a lasting memento of your magical encounters with Disney characters.

 

Snacks And Sips To Fuel Your Disneyland Paris Adventure

When exploring Disneyland Paris, it's essential to pack snacks and drinks that will keep you energised and hydrated throughout the day. Opt for non-perishable snacks such as granola bars or packs of crackers or biscuits. These treats are tasty, easy to carry, and provide a quick energy boost while you navigate the park's attractions and experiences.


Snacks At Disneyland Paris

To quench your thirst, bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day. Disneyland Paris offers water fountains where you can refill your bottle, ensuring you can access fresh water whenever needed. Additionally, consider packing small juice boxes or electrolyte drinks to replenish lost nutrients and stay refreshed.

By bringing a selection of your snacks and drinks, you'll save time and money, maximise your Disney adventure, and keep everyone's energy levels high. Remember to be mindful of any food restrictions or park policies regarding outside food and beverages.

 

Don’t Forget Those Entertainment And Comfort Items 

With photo and video opportunities around every corner, phone and tablet batteries can quickly decrease. Ensure your devices stay charged for all-day fun by packing a portable charger. Whilst Disneyland Paris provides charging stations, having your own power source guarantees uninterrupted enjoyment of the park.


Winter Packing For Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris In Winter: Warm Clothing And Layers


Disneyland Paris In Winter

A winter visit to Disneyland Paris can be extra magical, especially when the Christmas/Halloween decorations are up. Just be mindful that during these winter visits, temperatures at Disneyland Paris can be chilly. Packing warm clothing such as jumpers or cardigans, trousers or jeans, and long-sleeved tops is important. Layering is key to adapting to changing temperatures throughout the day. Remember to bring hats, gloves and scarves to stay cosy. 

 

Disneyland Paris In Winter: Cold-Weather Accessories

In winter, when embarking on a Disneyland adventure, it becomes crucial to pack the appropriate cold-weather accessories to shield yourself from the chilly elements. As you prepare for the magical journey, consider including earmuffs or a hat to keep your ears snug and protected from the biting winds that may sweep through the park. These accessories will shield you from the cold so you can enjoy the magic of Disney at wintertime. 

 

Disneyland Paris In Winter: Wet Weather Items

While rain can occur year-round, winter months may see more frequent rainfall. Pack a waterproof or water-resistant jacket, rain trousers, and waterproof footwear to stay dry during your visit. As mentioned previously in our guide, remember to bring a compact umbrella or a poncho for added protection from the elements. If it does rain during your visit, use the opportunity to tackle some of the indoor attractions or shows. Not only will you stay dry but you’ll be able to give your feet a bit of a rest!


Summer Packing For Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris Summer Outfits: Keep It Light And Breathable


Disneyland Paris In Summer

Embrace Disneyland Paris in the summer by dressing in lightweight and breathable clothing. It can be hot and humid, so go for loose-fitting t-shirts, tank tops, or dresses made from airy fabrics like cotton or linen. These fabrics allow for better airflow, preventing overheating as you wander the park. Also, choose moisture-wicking fabrics, if possible, to stay comfortable during warm days.

 

Sun Protection: Unleash The Magic Of SPF At Disneyland Paris!

Sun protection is crucial during the summer months. Pack a wide-brimmed hat or cap, sunglasses, and high-SPF sunscreen to shield yourself from the sun's rays. Consider bringing a cover-up or a long-sleeved top for added protection.

 

Hydration Essentials

Staying hydrated is key during the summer heat. Pack and refill a reusable water bottle throughout the day to stay refreshed. Consider adding electrolyte packets or tablets to replenish minerals lost through sweat.


Disney Water Bottle

Disney Fans For Disney Fans: Keeping Cool At Disneyland Paris

Consider packing cooling accessories such as a portable misting fan, cooling towels, or a handheld fan to beat the summer heat. These items can provide instant relief during long waits in queues or outdoor shows.


Additional Disneyland Paris Tips And Tricks

Transportation To Disneyland Paris

Before reaching Disneyland Paris, it's essential to plan your transportation. Research the nearest airports, train stations, and shuttle services to ensure a smooth journey. Consider travel time, location, and budget when choosing your transportation options.

 

Accommodation And Luggage Storage

Finding the right accommodation near Disneyland Paris is crucial for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Explore and book hotels that suit your preferences and budget.


Disneyland Paris Luggage Storage

To make the most of your visit, consider staying at one of the Disneyland Paris hotels or a nearby partner hotel. These hotels offer the advantage of being near the park, allowing you easy access to the park. Many of these hotels also provide extra perks, such as early access to the park, character meet-and-greets, and themed rooms that will further immerse you in the Disney experience. Choosing the right accommodation sets the stage for a magical experience by maximising your exploration time. 

Additionally, inquire about luggage storage options within the park to make your visit hassle-free if your first port of call is the park during your travels. These lockers are a secure and reliable storage solution for your belongings near the park entrance. Say goodbye to carrying bulky bags or backpacks throughout the park – simply store them in the lockers. Whether you want to lighten your load or keep valuable items safe, these luggage lockers make your visit more enjoyable and worry-free.

 

Park Tickets And FastPass

Purchasing park tickets in advance can save you time and ensure a seamless entry into Disneyland Paris. Check out the different ticket options and consider purchasing FastPasses to reduce wait times for popular attractions.


Disneyland Premier Access App

Disneyland Paris have upgraded their FastPass’ to Premier Access. A great tip is to download the app and make sure you are signed up before heading to the park. You can also have it as an add-on if you book to stay at an on-site hotel. Premier Access allows you to skip the regular queues and enjoy a shorter wait time, during a designated time slot. By pre-booking you will be able to maximise your time and have a plan for the day already in place! 

 

Dining And Meal Options

From quick-service restaurants to character dining experiences, there's something to suit every palate. Make the most of your time by booking reservations in advance, especially for popular restaurants and character dining. Go for off-peak dining times to avoid crowds, which will save money and offer a more relaxed atmosphere. Take advantage of quick-service restaurants and mobile ordering options to skip the queues and save time too. Also, explore the various unique dining experiences at Disneyland Paris, like the Ratatouille-inspired restaurant, and watch out for seasonal events. 

 

Magical Money: Payment Options At Disneyland Paris

When it comes to payment options at Disneyland Paris, convenience reigns supreme. The park accepts various forms of payment, including credit cards, debit cards, and cash. However, consider using contactless payment methods such as Apple Pay or Google Pay to streamline your transactions and save time. These options allow for quick and easy payments without the need to handle cash or dig through your wallet.
