If you are visiting any Disney Park over the next week, get ready for big crowds and long lines.
Traveling during the holiday season is a popular option for many as most adults have extra time off due to the holiday vacation days and kids are out from school. Because of this, there is often an influx amount of travelers worldwide, and of course, all of the Disney Parks see the outcome of this through their Guest count.
At Disneyland Paris Resort, both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park are both under a capacity limit. Still, we have seen tons of crowds flood the Parks as Guests continue to visit over the holiday. At Disneyland Paris, there are also a lot of attractions that are under refurbishment at the moment, which is causing the other attractions to fill up.
Below, we can see that Disney Cave 0f Wonders (@Cave0fWonders) posted a photo of Peter Pan’s Flight line, which is extending through Fantasyland. Around the time of the photo, we looked at the wait times, and it appears that the Guests were likely waiting around 80 minutes for the attractions.

Yesterday, we saw Big Thunder Mountain close down, which caused massive crowds to form in front of the attraction. Now, Peter Pan’s Flight is working, but we can still see that the amount of Guests has not yet slowed down at Disneyland Paris.
If Guests want to skip the line, they can pay the Premier Access cost. This means that they would have to pay per person in their party to skip the standby queue. The prices fluctuate but typically stay around the following:
- Autopia: €5 per Guest (which equals nearly $6)
- Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
- Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
- Star Tours: The Adventure Continues: €5 per Guest (which equals nearly $6)
- Peter Pan’s Flight: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
- Big Thunder Mountain: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
- Ratatouille: The Adventure: €12 per Guest (which equals just over $14)
Seeing these crowds at Disneyland Paris is interesting at Disneyland Paris has been undergoing some changes when it comes to the Omicron variant. The New Year’s Eve party has been canceled, and there is now a chance that vaccinations will be mandatory to enter the Parks, depending on a pending bill put out by the French Government.
At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios and their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.
At the moment, Disneyland Paris does not expect to shut down, despite rumors noting that it is a possibility.
