The Best Time To Visit Disneyland Paris in 2024

The Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary has come to an end but there are many new and exciting things coming to Disneyland Paris in 2024. In this post, I share the experiences you can look forward to. Many of these Disneyland Paris* events are on my Disney bucket list. One day I will purchase a Disneyland Paris annual pass* so that we can visit them all!

The Best Time To Visit Disneyland Paris in 2024

We love sharing our Disneyland Paris adventures on our blog. Make sure you visit our Disneyland Paris Trips and Experiences post to read all about them.

What’s The Best Month To Visit Disneyland Paris in 2024?

This is the main question that people ask and many blogs and travel sites do answer it. Listing the months and the possible weather conditions. They normally advise you to avoid school holidays and weekends. Visiting during term time when it is normally quieter. I would advise this too but when you have children in school, term-time holidays aren’t really a viable option.

As this post is about the events coming to Disneyland Paris* I won’t go into details about the best month for the lowest crowds, weather and cheapest prices. I would say go when you can, there can never be a right or wrong time to visit. It is cold in the winter, layers are a must. We put leggings under our jeans. It is hot in the summer, plan for lots of rest breaks and enjoy the slower pace. Use the price estimate calendar* to work out the cheapest day to check-in. We find that arriving on a Sunday or Monday can reduce the price of your visit.

Find out when the French public holidays are and avoid them if you can. I have listed 2024’s dates below for reference.
