This article shares everything you need to know about Disneyland Paris minimum height requirements before you book park tickets.

In the end, you’ll be able to plan your day at the theme park better and make the best use of your time.

Why Disneyland Paris has height requirements

The heart of any amusement park is its rides. 

If the rides that swing you in the air or make you glide on boats don’t fulfill safety requirements, then the adventure may turn into an accident. 

Every ride has safety equipment like belts, seats, bars, and padlocks that are designed keeping in mind a certain body structure. 

If you’re too tall and big, your shoulders and waist might not fit properly in the seat, and you may find it difficult to fasten the seatbelt. 

This is why all the rides at Disneyland Paris have set up minimum height requirements to ensure safety for all, and everyone gets a chance to enjoy the rides. 

Depending on the rides’ popularity, the ride waiting times vary.

Type of ticket Cost
1-day Disneyland Paris ticket €56
1-day Flexible ticket €105
Multi-day Disneyland ticket €142
Entry tickets + Express Shuttle from Paris €139
Entry tickets + Coach Transfer from Paris €144
Express tickets + Train Transfer from Paris €139
