2016 Update: What can my child ride at Disney?

by - 09:00:00

When we were looking to go to Disneyland Pairs with young children, like everyone we started to worry that there would be nothing for them to do or that they would be too young to go on the rides. We need not worry though, Disneyland Paris is made for families and its packed with tones more than just rides! However if rides are what you're after, then great news! There really isn't much that young children can't do.
