Disneyland Paris
Travel guide, planner, and organizer!

Authored by Sabine Rautenberg; Edited by Carrie Hayward


About the Author
Sabine Rautenberg
holds a master's degree in business management and lives in Germany with her husband, Manuel. Her love for all things Disney started in 1992, when, at the age of 10, she watched the grand opening ceremony at Disneyland Paris (then known as Euro Disney) on TV. An avid traveler, Sabine has visited places all over Europe, America, Asia, and Africa. She and her husband especially love embarking on Disney cruises, in addition to spending time at Disney parks all over the world. Sabine has been a PassPorter Message Board Guide since 2007, a peer reviewer for various PassPorter guidebooks, and a guest contributor to PassPorter's newsletter. Because Disneyland Paris holds a special place in her heart, Sabine took on the challenge of writing PassPorter's Disneyland Paris without thinking twice.

About the Publisher
PassPorter is one of the leading publishers of printed Disney guidebooks. PassPorter's print books are found on bookshelves around the world and have garnered 12 national book awards. We have a loyal, devoted following, a very strong community of Disney fans, and a genuine love of Disney.

Here's what some of our readers say about PassPorter books:

"PassPorter is the best guidebook ever. I buy one every year, even if I'm not going to Walt Disney World." -- Jennifer Benoit

"This is a one-stop information source. In my busy lifestyle, I don't have time to do exhaustive research. PassPorter provides answers to all of my questions." -- Robbie Holloman

"Great maps, well organized, easy to carry on our trip, and ratings of rides and restaurants. We just love the whole package!" -- Missy Harvey

"I love everything! I bought two books before I found out about PassPorter. I love your book the best. I can take this with us and have all our information that we need at hand. Thank you!!!" -- DeAnn Rega

"I love the organization, the pockets, the planning assistance. You guys have done a GREAT job. I even told the cast member at Disney reservations about you guys. She said she would check you out." -- Johm Buxbaum

"PassPorter helped me organize scrapbook type things like brochures and record memories. I can't think of anything I disliked. I loved it! That's saying something from a super-organized person like myself!" -- Tracey Coleman

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. I got your Field Guide to the Disney Cruise Line about three weeks ago. Since then there has not been a day I do not pick it up to check out something about our upcoming cruise. Your guide is well written, very organized, and a wealth of knowledge. Thanks again for a job well done." -- Bill, Dee, Teresa, Courtney, & Megan

"I love the comprehensive detail about almost everything! While ignorance may be bliss, it doesn't appear to be an effective way to enjoy the Disney experience. Congratulations to you, your staff and associates, on providing an excellent resource for those of us which, until now, have been full of bliss!" -- Melisa McCelvey

If you already have a copy of PassPorter Walt Disney World, PassPorter's Disneyland, or PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line, this e-book is filled with entirely new stuff. We think of it as the information we would like to include in our printed guidebooks if we had the room.


Explore a magical place where The Mouse speaks French!

PassPorter's Disneyland Paris is a comprehensive, 204-page e-book covering every aspect of visiting Disneyland Paris, including traveling to France from the United States and the United Kingdom. Disneyland Paris comprises two theme parks, a shopping and entertainment district, six resort hotels, a ranch, a golf course, and so much more. This e-book provides all the information you need to get the most out of your stay at this exciting vacation destination, plus it makes planning a lot of fun!

Among the features of PassPorter's Disneyland Paris are detailed descriptions of all the attractions and restaurants at Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, a look at Disney's on-site hotels and the partner hotels off property, and coverage of shopping options at the resort and in the area. Additionally, this e-book contains PassPorter's comprehensive maps of the theme parks, the Disney Village shopping and entertainment district, and all of Disney's hotels!

We supply tips on how to stay healthy, safe, and in touch, along with information about flying and international travel--including what to expect when arriving in France, duty-free allowances, passports, and immigration. Furthermore, we offer advice for travel via train, ferry, bus, or car; need-to-know facts about driving in France; plus how to get to Disneyland Paris from the airport or Paris' central train station.

Traveling abroad often means dealing with foreign currency. This e-book compares different payment options like credit cards, traveler's checks, and cash and has helpful tips for setting up a vacation budget. Handy clip-and-save currency-conversion-rate tables help you calculate how much your dollar or pound might buy you in France.

Because Disneyland Paris is located in a beautiful, scenic region near the French capital, we've included a look at what Paris and its surrounding areas have to offer. This includes an overview of the most popular sights, information on tours offered through Disney, and details on the nearby Val d'Europe shopping center.

PassPorter's Disneyland Paris is organized into six chapters, following the signature PassPorter layout:

Planning Your Adventure - Introduction, finding information, budgeting for your vacation, how much does it cost, money abroad and different methods of payment, and current conversion-rate tables

Getting There (and Back!) - When to go; staying in touch, healthy, and safe; travel insurance; international travel; passports and visa requirements; transportation methods; entering and leaving France; choosing an airline; getting to Disneyland Paris from the airport; and driving in France
