A Disneyland Paris school trip has so much to offer young students, both as an educational experience and as a special end of term treat. Primary and secondary school teachers alike will appreciate the opportunity to ignite the imaginations of pupils as they meet their favourite characters, as well as engage their creativity and teach them some history.

Below are the highlights of the park, which allow students to experience the fantastical world of Disney while learning its history and becoming inspired by its creation.

Walt Disney Studios Park

Take a break from the rides and take the time to truly capture the creative spirit of your pupils by visiting the dream factory during your Disneyland Paris school trip. This serves as an introduction into the world of media and animation and children will be delighted to discover how their favourite characters are brought to life. This attraction is perfect for any age and will even inspire the teachers.

How Magic is Made

Students will explore the art of animation as they learn about the legacy of Walt Disney. In a fun, interactive classroom setting, pupils will be shown a cinema presentation including classic Disney clips and demonstrations of character creation from over the years. They will also be given the opportunity to craft their own fantasy character using an interactive station.

Special Effects

This is an exhilarating and immersive experience for the students and teachers alike. The Backlot is bursting with fun activities and knowledge about Disney’s special effects. Learn about the history of special effects with the Armageddon crew, and then jump into the action as the orbiting space station you are in is spontaneously hit by a meteorite shower. Watch as your surroundings combust and are sucked into space on this thrilling adventure.

Fantasy Land

Teachers and children will love visiting Fantasy Land during a Disneyland Paris school trip. This enchanted world will be a nostalgic walk down memory lane (especially for the adults who grew up with Disney) as timeless moments are brought to life. The buildings are inspired by historic medieval French villages; take a moment to remind pupils of the real architectural history of their favourite magical place.

Here you will have the opportunity to illuminate the imagination of your pupils as they soar through the skies with Peter Pan, take a spin in the Mad Hatter’s teacups and meet iconic princesses like Cinderella and Snow White. You can also give your class a lesson on logic and problem solving as they find their way around Alice’s Curious Labyrinth – they must escape if they want to meet the Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit.

Meal times are also a chance to introduce the children to traditional cuisine from around the world as they tuck in to French delicacies, Italian fare and British classics in themed restaurants. There’s always an opportunity to combine fun with learning at Disney.

Trips such as these can be time consuming to organise and book, so consider a specialised educational travel tour operator to help design a Disneyland Paris school trip to suit you and your class – that way, you can focus on getting your students excited to experience the magic of Disney on your next holiday.

If you want to ignite your pupils’ imaginations, curate their creativity and sneak in a lesson or two, consider Disneyland Paris for your next educational excursion abroad.
