Holidays to Disneyland Paris are back ON!

Travelling is a little bit different at the moment, but we are here to help guide you through that. Under the current rules, here's what you need to know...

Entry to France (from 14/1/22):

  • Adults (over 18) must be fully vaccinated to holiday in France. They must also provide the result of a negative PCR or antigen test (in paper or digital format) carried out less than 24 hours prior to departure from the UK.
  • Teenagers (ages 12-17) travelling with fully vaccinated adults need to show a negative test within 24 hours before leaving the UK. [Please see new information below regarding 16’s and 17’s and France Health/Vaccine Passes].
  • Children (under 12) don't need vaccination or tests to visit France.
  • All passengers need to complete a simple form to enter France called a "Statement of Honour" - it's a straightforward health declaration.

Returning to England:

Great news! - Adults (18+) and Teenagers (11-17) are NO LONGER REQUIRED to have a private pre-departure test. Also, people are NO LONGER REQUIRED to self-isolate while waiting for the results of the day 2 test. This means holidays to Disneyland Paris are much easier than they were before.
  • Before returning to the UK all adults need to complete a Passenger Locator Form online (within 48 hours of the return time) and all passengers over 4 years old will need to take a covid test on day 2. This has to be pre-booked as you will need to enter the booking confirmation number on your passenger locator form prior to returning to the U.K. This can be a PCR or a cheaper lateral flow test. This Day 2 test has to be taken on or before Day 2, so you can take it as soon as you are back in England.

While in France and at Disneyland Paris:

  • In France to enter services and venues, including Disneyland Paris, the Disney Parks, hotels, bars, restaurants, all those aged over 12 years and 2 months have to show a Health Pass or a Vaccine Pass, as explained below.
    • Adults (18+) and older teenagers (16 & 17) are required to present a Vaccine Pass to enter Disneyland Paris, Disney Village, Hotels, public transport etc. This must confirm that you are fully vaccinated. From 15/1/22 you will need to have had your booster vaccination if it is more than 7 months since you were fully vaccinated. From 15/2/22 you will need to have had your booster vaccination if it is more than 4 months since you were fully vaccinated.
    • Children (12-15) will be required to present a Health Pass to enter Disneyland Paris, Disney Village, Hotels, public transport etc. This must confirm that you are fully vaccinated OR evidence of a private negative test within the last 24 hours for either a PCR test or Antigen test OR evidence of recovery (at least 11 days and less than 6 months from a positive test).
  • Self-administered tests, whose results are not certified by a laboratory (e.g. tests provided free of charge by the NHS) are not considered valid for travel. The NHS indicates that it will not carry out tests for travel purposes. Private entities offering the same service must therefore be used.

Helpful tips:

  • Create an account in advance of travel for your Passenger Locator Form - this will make it simple to complete ahead of your return to the UK.
  • Speak to a Government approved testing provider to arrange the correct tests required to enter France.
  • Book your day 2 test and make a note of your reference number for when you complete your Passenger Locator Form.
  • Preinstall the TousAntiCovid app (French equivalent of NHS Covid app) on your smartphone. You can scan and upload your proof of vaccination or negative test results from the NHS covid app into this French app.
  • There is a covid testing centre in the Disney Village, so if you need a test, it is easy to book one, or walk in.
