UPDATED: MARCH 2020
In this step-by-step guide I will show you exactly how to buy a Disneyland Paris ticket on a website that on average, will save you 20 EUR, but the savings could be even more!
So that you know all the alternatives, I am going to describe 4 different ways to buy tickets to Disneyland in France including the one where you save at least 20 euros from the price on the official website.
NOTE: I am only comparing the prices for 1 day/2 parks MAGIC tickets for simplification reasons (I will explain what ‘Magic’ means below). In case you only have one day to visit Disneyland Paris, I strongly recommend you buy the ticket for both parks any way!
Click one of the buttons to skip to other sections:
1. At the gate
The first and the most obvious option is buying your Disneyland ticket at the gate. Currently, the price of this ticket is 93£ per person for 1 day, 2 parks.
– Is it expensive?
– Well, if you ask me, yes!
NOTE: The picture above is old, I took it a couple of years ago, you can see the updated gate price below or on the official website here.
|1 day, 1 park||76£||70£|
|1 day, 2 parks||93£||87£|
|2 days, 2 parks||147£||136£|
|3 days, 2 parks||184£||170£|
|4 days, 2 parks||217£||200£|
And even if you can afford it, why not be a smart traveler and save about 20€ per ticket to Disneyland? Read on to see how!
When I was there passing by the long line, I felt sorry for people waiting in line at the entrance ready to buy very overpriced tickets.
Why would they do that? Lack of information I guess.
Just a bit of surfing the internet (like my website, huh!) and you will be able to save around 20€ per person and at least 1 hour in the queue.
As you might know, I hate lines, and I am quite efficient at avoiding them. Read my all time popular post 6 places in Paris with the longest queues, and how to avoid them and you will understand what I am talking about!
2. On the Disney website
Buying tickets on the official website is very straightforward and can also be the cheapest sometimes. Everything is in English and the interface is quite intuitive.
Here is how you do it –
- Go to the official website ->
- Choose the number of days (1 day or multi days) ->
- If you go for one day, I recommend choosing the “1 day 2 parks” option because you are missing out a lot by only visiting 1 park! ->
- Choose your preferred type: MINI (buy during working days), MAGIC (all week except holidays), or SUPER MAGIC (all year long including Christmas, New Years, Halloween etc.) Scroll down for the detailed description of the difference between MINI, MAGIC and SUPERMAGIC ->
- Press “Book here” ->
- Choose the number of people (kids have a discount). The price is in pounds because it is a Great Britain website but you can pay in any currency since it will convert automatically ->
- Press “Add to cart” and then “Continue” ->
- Enter your contact information, pay with your credit card, and you will receive your ticket by email, hooray!
That is it, just go directly at the gates with these tickets, no need to queue in the cash register!
NOTE: At the moment when this article was last updated (April 2020), the price was 82.67 GBP (vs 93 GBP if you buy it at the gate) for 1 adult for a 1 day/2 parks MAGIC ticket for the 4th of May 2020 (see print screen below):
TIP: Check Disneyland Offers and Packages – sometimes Disneyland in Paris throws crazy promos that are even cheaper than on the website I am going to recommend below!
Which type of ticket to choose – Mini, Magic or Supermagic?
Now, what the hell is all that? Just give me my ticket!
Let me explain, as it might be a bit confusing at first.
The MINI ticket is a ticket to Disneyland on working days (usually the cheapest), MAGIC is for weekends and SUPERMAGIC is for major holidays like Christmas, Easter, Halloween (the most expensive).
That means that if you have a SUPERMAGIC ticket, you can go anytime, including during a normal working day. In order to save money, it is best you plan in advance more or less when you will be heading to Disneyland.
Got it? Let me know in the comments if you have more questions!
You do not have to know exactly when you will be going to Disneyland, which is very convenient, but you should have an idea whether it will be during the work week or on a weekend.
Here is the calendar of tickets until June 2020 (green = MINI, blue = MAGIC, purple = SUPERMAGIC):
Now let’s find out how you can save some money on your Disneyland Paris tickets!
Reminder: I will be comparing the prices for the same ticket (1 day 2 parks, MAGIC on May 4th, 2020) on all websites:
3. On 365Tickets
365Tickets is a website where you can buy tons of different tickets for activities all around the world. It is a verified website, so I guarantee you will not have any problems with your tickets at the entrance!
Here is how much the 1 day/2 parks Magic ticket is on 365Tickets for the 4th of May 2020:
The prices you will find for your dates depend, of course, on the current promotions run by the website and on the season. This is why I recommend checking all 3 websites I am talking about (official website, 365Tickets, and Isango) and carefully making the calculations yourself in order to find the best price for your trip!
Here is how you can buy your ticket on 365Tickets:
-> Go on the website here
-> Select ‘1 Day Ticket’ (or longer depending on how long you want to stay)
-> Select ‘1 day 2 park ticket’ (or whatever ticket you prefer)
-> Insert the number of people
-> Click on ‘Add to Basket’
-> Select the date
-> Click again on ‘Add to Basket’
-> Select your payment method and click ‘Proceed to Checkout’
-> Fill in yor dates, make sure everything is in order and ‘Buy tickets’!
You’ll get an order confirmation by email, and your tickets will be available from the email as soon as your order is complete! Make sure you have them printed before arriving to the venue.
4. On Isango website
Isango is a UK chain selling all kinds of tickets for many destinations and activities. You can buy tickets to almost everything through their website, including Disneyland.
NOTE: Isango is an international website, so you can buy your Disneyland Paris tickets regardless of the country you are currently in; you do not have to be in or from the United Kingdom.
Here is how much the 1 day/2 parks Magic ticket costs on Isango for the 4th of May 2020:
NOTE: Please note that you have to print the tickets yourself before going and present them at the gate; you can’t show them on your phone (yet), but the good news is that you can print them for free at Donald’s desk at the entrance. One-day tickets have instant processing, but for the multi-day tickets you may have to wait to receive your e-mail ticket for 1 or 2 days during peak season as there are many people buying from Isango. Do not worry, your ticket will arrive but keep in mind – do not buy it last minute!
Here is how to buy cheap Disneyland Paris tickets through Isango:
Go to Isango and type ‘Disneyland Paris’ in the search box:
-> Choose 1 Day/1 parks or 1 Day/2 parks. Click on ‘details’
-> Select the date and number of guests and click on ‘check availability’
-> Select the ticket you want and click on ‘add to cart’.
As I said above, I recommend visiting both parks. The Disney Studio park is small, but it is SUPER cool and it has some amazing rides entertainment!
-> ‘Proceed to payment’
-> Check that the dates are correct, fill in your info and click on ‘Confirm booking’
-> Congratz, you got your tickets!
So, which ticket website is cheaper in the end?
In order to show you which website is cheaper, in the print screens I have compared the prices for the 1 day/2 parks MAGIC ticket for 1 adult in May 2020.
For a better overview, I have also made the calculations for Magic and Super Magic on all 3 websites and at the gate. See the table below:
At the time of this update (April 2020), the Mini tickets for 1 day 2 parks are cheaper on 365tickets – 63.5£ compared to 66.8£ (you save 3.3£) on the official website. The Magic and Supermagic tickets are also cheaper on 365tickets – 78.5£ and 89.4£ compared to 82.6£ or 94.1£ (you save 4.1£ or 4.7£) on the official website.
So, in conclusion, 365tickets usually has better prices than the official website. But sometimes Disneyland Paris throws great promos on their official website as well where they offer cool perks (such as free lunch in a restaurant), so I recommend checking the Promos section of Disneyland as well!
All in all, it is more time-consuming to check all 3 websites, but you will be able to save about 10£ on average (even more than that for SUPER MAGIC tickets) per person, so I would say it is worth 5 extra minutes of your time! 🙂
NOTE: Sometimes these money-saving websites I am recommending have better prices, but not all the time! You will need to make the calculations yourself for your specific dates and see which one has the best offer.
NOTE 2: At the times of previous updates, it was indeed possible to save as much as 20€ on your Disneyland tickets, but because of the pricing policies and current promotions, the situation has changed a bit. You can still save quite a bit of money, though if you buy your tickets in advance and if you research all 3 websites I am talking about.
NOTE 3: In case you want to buy the Fastpass as well, you do not need to queue at the entrance of the park – you can buy it once you get inside!
UPDATE: 2 DAYS/2 PARKS VS 1 DAY/1 PARK TWICE
Some of the readers who were going to visit Disney for 2 days asked me if it is better to buy 1 day/1 park tickets twice because it is cheaper this way. While it is indeed cheaper to get individual tickets for each day instead of the 2 days – 2 parks ticket, you will not actually trick the system.
Here is why: The main Disneyland Park is huge (you can count it as 1.5 parks), so you will definitely need more than one day to enjoy it properly, while Walt Disney Studios is smaller and can be easily done in half a day (so we can count it as 0.5 parks).
In my opinion, it is way better to by the 2 days – 2 parks ticket and continue to the main Disney Park after you finish with the Disney Studios park on the same day. Buying individual tickets makes sense if you don’t have 2 full days anyway (only 1 and a half maybe) or if you have small kids, as Walt Disney Studios has simpler rides fit for infants so you might want to spend a full day there.
I hope you will travel smart, my friends!
Got a good deal for Disneyland?
BONUS – Where to stay in Disneyland, Paris
Now as you bought a good ticket for your Disneyland adventure, why don’t you get a hotel in the area overnight?
Luxury (100€ and up):
L’ELysée Val d’Europe is an amazing accommodation located super close to the park (less than 2km away!). It has an on-site restaurant that serves French cuisine dishes, a terrace, a bar, free Wi-Fi and more! My other recommendation for luxury travelers is Hôtel Le Cheval Blanc – a 4-star hotel with 18th-century vibes, gorgeous rooms and other great facilities. Moreover, guests staying there can use a free shuttle to get to the park each day!
Middle-priced (from 50€ to 100€):
Residence Alassa is a great apartment-type accommodation located almost 3km away from the park. Some of the perks of staying there include the existence of a beautiful garden, free Wi-Fi, free on-site parking and more! Chambre Disney is another great option – this nice and cozy B&B is located the same distance from Disneyland (3km) and you will enjoy its free Wi-Fi, gorgeous terrace, clean rooms and friendly staff!
Budget (up to 50€):
Eric Lau is located around 2km away from Disneyland Paris and is a great B&B for budget travelers. You will be close to the park and also have access to free Wi-Fi, a shared lounge and a delicious breakfast at the accommodation!

UPDATE: Disneyland is closed in these crazy times of pandemic, we do not know how long it is going to take, but I hope they will open their door as soon as possible! I know this is hardly an alternative, but take a look at my comparison of Best inflatable water slides, it might entertain your kids (and you!) during the lockdown.
