Crowds in Disneyland Paris vary greatly from season to season and even from day to day, the difference of a single day can save you hundreds of pounds as well as hours of queuing. You'll have to consider the European national holidays from France and all surrounding countries, the weather, school holidays, pricing and more. To help you with that we've compiled a detailed guide of when we think the best times to go to Disneyland Paris are, even including detailed analysis of weekdays.

Below is a guide to the best times of the year to visit Disneyland Paris and the times of the year to avoid.

Major French/European Holidays - in calendar order: (times to avoid if possible)
1st January - New Year's Day
1st January - 4th January - School Christmas holidays
15th February to 1st March - French school break, and half-term in UK...

Therefore the best times of the year to visit are the following, as well as most of the time being cheaper and out of season (meaning you'll probably need to ask the school for permission to take your kids):
Early December to Mid-December - There may even be Christmas decorations up already. Before schools are on holiday. Cold.
January - excluding the first four or five days when it is still school holidays. Cold.
