For your Christmas souvenirs, head towards World of Disney, Emporium, Ribbons and Hat, and Walt Disney Studios Store. The shops receive many themed items in holiday colors during the Christmas period. This year again, new products might arrive in stores, to the delight of all. Regularly, Disneyland Paris offers merch from its parks in the United States or from Shop Disney. The shops, being also beautifully decorated during the season, should draw you further into the Christmas magic.

Our Tip: Book Early to Save

Planning an end-of-year stay early can save you the most. Three months ahead seems to be the ideal time to take advantage of the best offers. You can book your Disney hotel through Disneyland Paris or its partner hotel through Booking.com. Also, monitor sites like Veepee.com and Showroomprivé for a last-minute bargain. Ideally, you could book now at the end of August to enjoy still reasonably affordable prices, according to our latest findings.

Annual Passes and Disney Premier Access Ultimate

Do you own a Disneyland Pass 2023? We advise you to keep an eye on your dates if you have Disneyland Pass Silver or Disneyland Pass Bronze, as they suffer many date restrictions for the Christmas season. The Disney Premier Access Ultimate could be useful, especially if you come on weekends and during school holidays.
