1. Disneyland Paris Low Season /High Season

The first point of this Disneyland Paris Crowd Calendar 2022-2023 is about the Disneyland Paris low season and high season. The high season and low season in Disneyland Paris are the same as in the French capital. The Disneyland Paris low season is considered from 1st November to 31st March, except for the holiday season (from mid-November to the first days of January). Disneyland Paris at Christmas is always one of the busiest periods!

The low season is the best time to visit Disneyland Paris to avoid crowds, and the tickets to the park are also cheaper, but the weather may not be ideal.

Also, there may be fewer scheduled shows and events during these periods.

The high season in Disneyland Paris is considered from 1st April to 31st October. It means better weather and more hours of daylight but also more crowds and long lines for the rides.

2. Best Day to Visit Disneyland Paris 2022-2023

The best days to visit Disneyland Paris – when the number of visitors is relatively low – are Tuesday or Thursday. Some schools in Paris have Wednesdays off which may be a good opportunity for the local kids to visit Disneyland Paris with their grandparents.

Weekends definitely attract more locals and travelers from Europe in general. Also, Disneyland Parks have extended hours during the weekends, making Saturday and Sunday more attractive for everybody.

3. France and Disneyland Paris Holidays 2022
