Does your trip to Paris need some more trippy-ness? Disney Paris has the hookup you’re looking for. There are two parks just outside Paris proper: Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios. You can make a reservation or buy an undated ticket to explore the Star Wars universe and Alice’s Labyrinth with the chance to eat at Chez Rémy and then either stumble to bed at a nearby hotel catering to the Mickey-loving crowd or somehow make it to the RER train back to Paris. Think of the location as a not-far, but not super-close either suburb to Paris and plan accordingly.
Enjoy all of the wonder and revisit your childhood (before rent and health insurance premiums became a thing), or just flashback to some shades of that ayahuasca ceremony from your last vacation to Peru.
As it’s located about an hour or so outside of Paris, you can take the RER A train back into town. But honestly, after a day of walking among the weird wonderland of exaggerated, LSD-inspired architecture and trippy faux villages throbbing with freaky cartoon personages, don’t kill your buzz by getting onto the train. There are plenty of hotels with varying degrees of family friendliness nearby. For adult travelers without kids/in need of an evening buzz, note which hotels lack alcohol and overflow with children. Trust us on this. Out here there’s likely no hotel bar nor delivery so whatever you are are bedding down with is it. Plan accordingly #accidentaldetox
