When to book for 2026 and where to eat

I am looking at going to Paris for our 10 year anniversary in May 2026- 3 nights Paris and 3 nights Disneyland. I am not bothered about spending lots on the accommodation so happy to stay at Santa Fe or Cheyenne. I havenít been for 20 years so havenít got a clue where to start and when I should think about booking to get the best deal? is it best to book through Disney?

Any must do food spots? Knowing how overpriced Disney food is we might just do one character meal in case we miss them in the parks and one sit down meal then more casual for the rest. Husband is a huge Marvel fan- are the themed restaurants in the hotel or the park worth it?

We would be there Weds-Sat so thinking Weds and Thurs to do the parks, Fri to do what we missed and see the Marvel and Disneyland hotel and Village, Sat just go to the Village depending on flight time.

Flights I am hoping we can get Easyjet to fit in as the transfer from Beauvais takes up too much time and cost, Orly seems a bit easier.

We loved PYMs Kitchen in Avengers Campus (buffet), really good range of food and fun theming!

We are going to be trying Royal Banquet in September for character lunch, very excited for that (and to see inside the newly renovated Disneyland Hotel!)

Im currently looking at the dining options for DLP for our trip in June but i really do feel the options here are very poor, especially in comparison to WDW.

We will be trying PYM Kitchen and we've added a character breakfast at Plaza Gardens again. Other than that im struggling.

As its your anniversary maybe Walts could be a nice idea?

Yo! Cheyenne is a great choice, 15 minute walk to the parks, perfectly comfortable and all you need if spending all day in the parks. The buffet restaurant there (Chuckwagon Cafe) is pretty good too if youíre looking at having breakfast there.

If you book direct with Disney youíll get park tickets included for all four days. You can hop in and out of both parks as you wish for the whole stay. Disney Village is currently going through a big refurb which should be pretty much done come 2026. Nevertheless, it still wonít be worth spending too much time there.

Restaurants - PYM kitchen in Avengers campus is good fun and pretty decent. Also Downtown restaurant in Hotel NY Art of Marvel is very popular.

If youíre planning on eating at a few table service restaurants and are breakfast people, Iíd recommend a half board dining plan.

If Manchester is a workable departure point for you Iíd recommend flying EZY into Paris CDG as it is closer to DLP.

Iím sure many others will post more tips, but hope this is of some use.

Have you thought about staying outside DLP at a walkable distance to Disney Springs? We have done that the last few times as we like having a choice of restaurants at our doorstep which arenít the Disney ones. Really like LíInterprete and there is a good creperie around the corner (though this was pre COVID)

thank you if PYM is similar theming and food to the California one then will definitely check that out- buffet sounds like a better way to try more options

Thank you thats really helpful- i think we would choose lunch and dinner over breakfast, i will have a look at the price though and see if it's worth it for us

Flights- i just had a quick look at this Mays prices and CDG was a lot more expensive, i appreciate that it's close to May now so i will see what next years are like to compare when they are released

I wouldnít agree food offerings are poor in DLP, sure it is a different beast when compared to the US parks, especially WDW.

You wonít find the vast snack and counter service options, it just isnít a thing in France. You will however find decent table service and buffet offerings. Of course itís subjective but weíve never had a bad meal. In my experience Iíd recommend Bistrot Chez Remy, PYM kitchen, Yacht Club, Manhattan restaurant, Downtown, Waltís. Iíve found the Chuckwagon buffet surprisingly good for dinner. If you go for counter service Iíd avoid cafe Hyperion and En Coulisse (burger/fries/nuggets etc) food is generally cold and service painfully slow. En Coulisse closes at the end of next month, will be interesting to see what they do with it.

If youíre into something more typically French, Brasserie Rosalie could be an option in Disney Village, itís not a Disney-operated location so would not be on the dining plan.
