In this step-by-step guide I will show you exactly how to buy the ticket on a website that on average, will save you 20 EUR, but it can be even more!
So that you know all the alternatives, I am going to describe 3 different ways to buy tickets to Disneyland, France including the one, where you save at least 20 euros from the price on the official website.
Click 1 of the buttons to skip other sections:
1. At the gate
1) The first and the most obvious one is buying your Disneyland ticket at the gate. Currently, the price of such ticket is 88€ per person.
– Is it expensive?
– Well, if you ask me, yes.
And even if you can afford it, why not be a smart traveler and save about 20 EUR per ticket to Disneyland? Read on to see how.
When I was there passing by the crowd, I felt pity for people queuing at the entrance ready to buy very overpriced tickets.
Why would they do it? 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 queues, and I am quite efficient avoiding them. Read my all time popular post “6 places in Paris with the longest queues, and how to avoid them”, you will understand what I am talking about!
2. On Disney website
2) Buying tickets on the official website. This option is the least tricky, everything is in English and quite intuitive.
Here is how you do it –
- Go to the official website ->
- Choose the amount of days (1 day or multi days) ->
- If you go for 1 day, I recommend choosing 1 day 2 parks option, you are missing out a lot by not visiting 1 park! ->
- Choose your preferred type: MINI (during working days), MAGIC (all week except holidays), or SUPER MAGIC (all year long including Christmas, New Years, Halloween etc.) ->
- Press “Book here” ->
- Choose the amount of people (kids have a discount), the type you chose. The price is in pounds because it is a GB website, you can pay in any currency, it will convert automatically ->
- Press “Add to cart” and then “Continue” ->
- Enter your contact information, pay with your credit card, you will receive your ticket by email, hooray!
At the moment when the article is last updated (15 Jan 2017), the price is 47 GBP for 1 adult 1 day/2 parks MINI ticket (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!
3. On the FNAC website
3) Buying tickets on the FNAC website.
FNAC is a huge retail chain offering books and electronics everywhere in France. You can buy tickets to almost everything through their website, including Disneyland.
Do not worry, it is absolutely official, I have bought ticket to Disneyland through the site 3 times for myself and many more for my friends! I assume it is cheaper because it requires some efforts of research in advance (Like reading this blog post for example!). The booking is in French, but you are a smart traveler, it is worth it!
Here is how to buy Fnac tickets for Disneyland:
Go to the website, choose English as your language (it does not fully translate it though), -> under “Recherche” type Disneyland, and this is more or less what you will see:
As you might have noticed, the prices shrink significantly – even if the official website is working and all the promos they have there, the price on Fnac is always better!
Choose the option you like more,
-> Press “Find tickets”
-> Choose the number of adults and kids tickets you need
-> Choose “Print at home” option (you will pay extra 50 cents per tickets, but believe me, it is much easier than to pay for postal costs or spend time of your vacation picking it up at Fnac store)
->Then you choose if you prefer to pay insurance for the cancellation cost (extra 2,5€)
->Finally, you will need to register on the site to be able to make a purchase.
->Afterwards, the procedure is really simple – you pay with your card, receive the tickets immediately by e-mail, print it
->Congrats! You have just saved around 20 € per person!
NOTE: You do not have to know WHEN EXACTLY you are going to Disneyland, but you do have to know what day of the week it will be.
The tickets from Mon to Fri are the cheapest (take the Billet MINI), the tickets during the weekends are more expensive (choose Billet MAGIC) and the tickets during the holidays (Haloween, before Christmas and New Years etc.) are the most expensive (buy Billet SUPER MAGIC). I know it is a bit confusing, let’s just say that – with the most SUPER MAGIC ticket you can go to the park any day of the year, with Billet MINI – only during the week days that are not holidays.
Got it? Here is the calendar to help you decide which ticket to choose:
P.S. Sometimes FNAC (FranceBillet) has its own promotions, so it can be even cheaper than 60€ per adult! Like the last week for example I have bought tickets for me and my parents through Fnac just for 47€! We came there passing by a huge queue of people buying the same tickets but for 88€.
I hope you will travel smart, my friends! Have a lot of fun in Disneyland!
Got a good deal for Disneyland?
BONUS – Where to stay in Disneyland, Paris
Now as we bought a good ticket for your Disneyland adventure, why not to stay in the area overnight?
It can be a great option for those
1)who want to stay till the closing show and don’t want to come back to Paris late at night;
2) people who bought ticket access to the park for 2 days or more.
I Have stayed in Dream Castle Hotel and can definitely recommend it!
This first class hotel is located very close to the entrance of Disneyland in Marne-la-Vallée
Dream Castle hotel is a 17th century chateau with decoration focused on the Three Musketeers theme.
From the moment you enter you will feel yourself in the magical atmosphere. Everything evokes that feeling – a concierge dressed in a circus uniform, brightly colored horse sculptures, decoration of your room and all the other details.
As it is a hotel for families, there was a bunk bed for kids in my room. The bunk bed is gently separated from the parents’ bed with a curtain.
There is a gorgeous carousel for kids, a green setting around the hotel to play outdoor, plenty of space and settings to play indoors as well. There is a great show for kids every evening, even an illustrator that will color your kids in all possible colors! There are children menus for breakfast and dinners.
You can send your little ones on an exciting scavenger hunt! A special surprise gift will wait for them at the end of the hunt after they stamp their personal passport given by the hotel.
It will truly make your kids’ eyes sparkle!
There is a beautiful running path around the hotel if you feel like doing some sports in the morning. If the weather is bad, there is a gym waiting for you indoors. Magic circus hotel offers variety of Spa services to relax after the day full of adventures. A bar with the selection of spirits and innovative cocktails is at your disposal as well.
I especially liked L’Occitane body care products that are available to use in your bathroom.
Car parking is provided at the hotel, a heated indoor swimming pool, fitness room, Free Wi-Fi, a free Shuttle bus to the Disney theme park and the TGV Station.
Of course, you can buy your EuroDisney ticket from the front desk, no need to stay in the queue. If you want to save significantly and buy your ticket online, I explained how to do it above.

HOW TO GET
There is a free shuttle (10 mins) that will take you to the Chessy-Marne-la-Vallee station (TGV, RER A etc.)
Low season can be 100 eur per night (breakfast included) or 125 if you want to stay with up to 2 kids. 180 eur (200 eur with kids) if you want to stay during Christmas.
