Planning a trip to Disney is very exciting but it can also be very stressful. I spent several weeks reading blog after blog about what to do at Disneyland Paris so that I would feel prepared for my first visit. Since I was only spending two days at the parks I wanted to make sure to make the most out of my time.
What to do at Disneyland Paris
Best Photo Spots
The Partners Statue
The partners statue of Walt Disney & Mickey Mouse can be found at Walt Disney Studios. This statue is always a favorite for Disney fans. I love that Tower of Terror is in the background. Tower of Terror is one of my favorite rides and I am still sad that they replaced it with the Guardians of the Galaxy ride in California.
Disneyland Paris has my favorite castle of the Disney theme parks that I have visited. It is the most stunning on the inside and out. In the bottom of the castle you can even find a dragon.
Boo’s Door From Monsters Inc
Boo’s door is one of my favorite photo spots at Walt Disney Studios. They also have scream canisters that you can yell into.
Downtown Disney is a good place to stop for a more relaxed dining experience and some shopping. Earl of Sandwich, Five Guys, and Annette’s Diner are my top recommendations for where to eat at Downtown Disney. I really enjoyed walking around the area and loved stopping in the World of Disney store.

What Shows Should You See
The entertainment offerings have changed this I visited. The parade has been updated and looks amazing. I was very impressed by the parade that I saw in 2014 but the one for 2017 looks even better! I recommend getting a seat near the gazebo on Main Street. I was able to get a front row spot about thirty minutes before the parade began.
Disney Dreams was the night time show when I was there and that has now been replaced with Illuminations. Do not miss the night time show. It will be one of the highlights of your visit.
