The weather at Disneyland Paris can make a big difference to your holiday. Like the UK, Paris has four distinct seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. It experiences an average of about 200 days of sunshine per year and runs similar to what we experience here in the UK! The temperature in Paris varies quite a bit depending on the season. In winter, temperatures can go as low as -5 degrees celsius but in summer they can reach up to 30 degrees celsius, and I have even experienced them surpassing Orlando! Disneyland Paris also experiences a fair amount of rainfall, so it’s best to pack some rain gear if you’re visiting during the wetter months.
Disneyland Paris in January
Average temperature 1 – 7°c
Disneyland Paris is a great place to visit any time of year, but it can be especially beautiful during winter when the resort is covered in snow! In fact, it's personally one of my favourite times to visit! The average temperature in Paris in January is about 2ºc, so it’s important to pack warm clothes if you’re visiting during that time. There’s usually not a lot of sunshine during winter in Paris, so you’ll want to bring an umbrella or raincoat as well, just in case!
Expect low crowds throughout the month, other than the few days after the New Year and 5th which is the Three Kings Festival, but Christmas does usually run through that first week so it's a great time to visit!
Disneyland Paris in February
Average temperature 2 – 8°c
In February, Paris experiences cold temperatures with an average of about 5ºc. Although there isn’t much sun this month, Disneyland Paris is still a beautiful place to visit and it’s one of the quietest British half-terms terms to visit.
Winter is a great time to visit Disneyland Paris with kids, as the parks are equipped for cold weather. Almost all entertainment continues including character meets, you can easily get hot drinks and hot delicious crepes and waffles. Another perk is the fireworks tend to happen a lot earlier which is great if you have small kids who tire easily!
Disneyland Paris in March
Average temperature 3 – 12°c
Much like the UK, March is a rather wet month in Paris, with on average 8 days of rainfall. However, there’s still plenty of good weather to enjoy and the temperatures are mild, with highs of 12ºc and lows of 3ºc. This is a great time to visit Paris if you don’t mind a bit of rain!
It’s the last month of the Winter pricing season and is popular with visitors wanting lower prices and moderate weather. Weekends can start to become very busy.
Disneyland Paris in April
Average temperature 6 – 15°c
The weather at Disneyland Paris in April is usually mild with average temperatures of around 11ºc. However, there can be highs as warm as 16ºc during the day. This is another rainy month, so be sure to pack your raincoat! Although it’s not as warm as some of the other months, Paris is still a beautiful place to visit and enjoy all the sights and sounds the city has to offer.
The Easter school holidays in Britain and France can overlap. Expect larger crowds and high prices throughout most of the month.
Disneyland Paris in May
Average temperature 9 – 19°c
In Paris, May is usually a mild month with average temperatures ranging from 9ºc to 19ºc There can be highs as warm as 23ºc, the rule of thumb is if it's warm in the UK, it's slightly warmer in DLP. There are usually about 9 rainy days in this month, but these are quick showers.
One of the best school holidays to visit. French schools are not on holiday at the same time, but there might be a public holiday that clashes.

The weather in Paris in June is usually warm with average temperatures of around 16ºc. There can be highs as warm as 23ºc as has been seen the past few years. There are usually about 8 rainy days in this month, but these are quick showers and everything dries up quickly.
One of the best off-season times to visit Disney. Prices are generally very good and the weather is at it's best.
Disneyland Paris in July & August
Average Temperature 15 – 24°c
July & August are usually the hottest months of the year in Paris, with average temperatures ranging from 20ºc to 24ºc. There can be highs that surpass 30ºc as seen over the last few years with European heatwaves. It's important to remember in these times of hot weather that like the UK, Disneyland Paris isn't really prepared and there isn't a lot of air conditioning.
However, Disneyland Paris is a beautiful place to visit any time of year, but it’s especially lovely during the summer when the parks are bustling with tourists and the weather is hot and sunny, you are on holiday after all, you probably want to see the sun!
French schools break up earlier than in Britain so expect crowds early in July. Avoid 14th July as it’s Bastille Day and the parks are swamped. Expect large crowds and high prices, although things tend to get better crowd wise later into August.
Disneyland Paris in September
Average temperature 12- 21°c
In Paris, September is usually a mild month with average temperatures of around 17ºc. There can be highs as warm as 20 ºc and lows as cool as 12ºc. September usually sees about 6 rainy days and is typically the driest month of the year in Paris so a great time to visit if you want to avoid rain!
After the crowds of the summer and before Halloween, the parks are quite quiet.
Disneyland Paris in October
Average temperature 9 – 17°c
Paris in October is one of the most beautiful times of year to visit. The average temperature is usually around 12ºc, but can range from highs of 16ºc to lows of 9ºc or even colder towards Halloween. There is usually an average of 8 rainy days in Paris this month, but these are short showers. If you venture into Paris itself the leaves are changing colors and the city is a beautiful sight to behold. Be sure to pack a coat though, as it can get a bit chilly at night.
October is a very, very busy month at Disneyland Paris. Halloween is an extremely busy season as it's very popular. You don't need to pay for extra tickets to experience the festivities as you would in the US parks! Expect large crowds and high prices during the half terms and over the weekends.
