Guests Are Being Warned to Make Reservations to Enter Disneyland Paris

The Paris Olympics is a fresh topic across the entire travel industry. With the event looming, more and more people are descending upon the French capital. This has taken a toll on things like hotel prices, and the city has even increased the cost of public transport. It’s been about a year now since the price of admission at the Louvre Museum also increased. Disneyland Paris is by no means immune to this issue. According to local reports, people are being turned away at the gates!

In the post-pandemic era, Disney theme parks have been much more concerned with guest capacity limits. It seems that the Paris location is either the one reaching capacity the most or the place where these guidelines are the strictest. That actually may come down to local regulations as well. In Florida and Anaheim, the Disney company has a bit more leeway when it comes to what they can or cannot do within their parks. That doesn’t seem to be something that applies to France.

While Disney hasn’t exactly disclosed the exact number of guests that constitute peak capacity at any of its parks, posts dating as far back as 2009 have been speculating about these numbers. These estimates indicate that up to 85,000 guests can access the Disney property in Paris in a day. That number seems to be rather off when you take into account that the same post claims Disney World’s peak capacity is around 90,000 guests. The Florida resort is around four times the size of the Paris property.

Official data indicates that around 50,000 guests come through the gates at Disneyland Paris on the busiest days. In the last few days, the park has been hanging up sold-out signs and, as mentioned, turning back people who want to purchase a one-day ticket to the park. The best way to avoid this is to buy the ticket in advance for a set date. This is going to guarantee that you get access to the park even if the sold-out sign is up. Even with a dated ticket, it’s still a good idea to arrive early to ensure you don’t have any problems.

What may be scary to think is that these crowd issues are taking place about a month before the Olympics begin in Paris. That actually may be one of the reasons why the park is so full. People who are in Paris for the Olympics may want to take in the Disney experience before the games begin. Regardless, it’s still recommended that folks who wish to enter the park buy a dated ticket. At this point, it wouldn’t be surprising if those started selling out as well.

The park is not only barring people on same-day tickets from entering, they are also encouraging guests to leave! Signs across the resort also let people know that if they want to avoid massive crowds, they should leave before 3 pm. Anyone who is not a fan of big crowds may want to avoid Paris in general this summer.
