Access to Attractions

Disneyland Paris issues 2 different types of Access Card (Priority Cards and Easy Access Cards), which allow disabled guests to access certain attractions via specially-adapted entrances. For further details, please take a look at the Disney Parks Accessibility Maps. Each attraction has its own access arrangements.
Priority Card: for disabled guests (anyone who is officially registered as disabled).
Easy Access Card: for guests with a temporary illness.
If the cardholder is not going on the attraction, the helper(s) must join the standard queue.

Important Information

These cards are issued based on the information you provide. It is vital this information is accurate, as it is used to determine possible access restrictions, thereby also determining your safety and that of your helper(s). Disneyland Paris cannot be held liable if you provide inaccurate information when applying for an Access Card.

These cards are strictly personal, and you may be asked for proof of identity. Access Cards remain the property of Disneyland Paris and can be withdrawn if misused. If you, as the cardholder, are not going on an attraction, your helper(s) must join the standard queue. We cannot guarantee you will be eligible for one of these cards.

Helpers

No more than 4 people.
All helpers must be present at the time the card is issued.

Helpers must include an able-bodied person at least 15 years of age who is capable of helping you, if you have:
- a mobility impairment,
- a visual impairment,
- Cognitive disabilities – including those on the Autism Spectrum *

*At certain attractions, several guests with this type of disability can be accompanied by just one helper.

For safety reasons, some of our attractions can only accept one disabled guest at a time. See the specific details for each attraction.

If the cardholder is not going on the attraction, the helper(s) must join the standard queue.
Helpers must agree to diligently carry out their role whilst in the Disney Parks. That means:
