If you visit during April, it is likely you will experience a rainy day, however, this is nothing like a rainy day in Walt Disney World.

Our Top Tips for Visiting Disneyland Paris in April

One of our biggest tips for guests staying at Disneyland Paris during the month of April is to stay on-site, if you budget allows it. When creating this guide, we found that many Disney hotels were actually cheaper than partner hotels. The DLP Hotels are located very close to the parks with each only a short 5-10 minute walk or bus ride to and from the park, which makes it far easier to change clothes, add extra layers or take a break if needed!

Our other top tips include;

  • Try to book outside of the Easter Holidays for the lowest Hotel prices and lower crowd levels.
  • Take advantage of Extra Magic Time (EMT). During springtime, the park will begin to have longer opening hours, and by using this extra time you have more chance of doing everything you want during your Disney holiday.
  • Meet Disney characters in your hotel. Each morning or evening you can meet a selection of Disney Characters with your hotel, and you can often find even shorter queue lines. Plus you are indoors, keeping warm!
  • Take appropriate clothing! We always advise you to take warm or thermal clothing options, along with waterproof coats. If you plan to sit and wait for parades or stay in the parks to watch the illuminations and the fireworks you will need them!
