Disneyland Paris

We’re all kids at heart, and let’s be honest, there’s never a dull moment in this magical land. Disneyland in Paris is a fantastic day had by all; the young and the young at heart. Located on the eastern outskirts of Paris, you’ll need to make sure you organise your transport as this can be a very expensive taxi ride! Welcome offers some great alternatives to public transport – check out our Private Round-Trip Transfer to Disneyland! Also make sure to buy your tickets in advance, as the queues can be long and daunting, especially during the holiday seasons!
