It could be very hot at that time. Also very busy.

Unless it’s combined with being in France, personally I’d look at a different and quieter time.

You can’t go wrong with an onsite hotel as you get extra magic time.

Summer hours are long so do one day with extra magic time and one day late for the fireworks if you don’t think you can do early until very late.

Book character dining in advance if you’d like that. We always do inventions.

With a 5 and 2 year old I would def go for an on site hotel. It’s busy, and tiring and I doubt they’ll manage a whole day without a rest. If you’re going with another adult, one could take the little ones back for a test and the other could stay in the park with the 11 year old and do the things the little one will be too small for.

It’s an amazing place, but your 11 year old will want to do completely different things to you little ones. With tiny kids I would also try and book the character meets in advance. Queues can be two hours long and the little ones will be bored and grumpy waiting.

Also lots of water bottles and fill them up at the fountains as it’ll be hot. If you stay on site you’ll get extra magic time, which will be the best time for less queues to do tings with the little ones. So def be there early to make the most of it. Then take them back for a nap in the afternoon, so the have the energy for the fireworks, which were 10pm when we went, but might be later in the summer.

We loved it there and would like to go back, but unless your two year old is very placid, it maybe be hard work.

I’d stay at the resort, although I found them to be very tired looking. If you stay there you get early entry and it really makes a difference! I found the food was awful, all fast food type. We went in October and it was pretty busy then so I’d imagine July would be hell. I’m not sure the 2 year old would get much from it. Definitely take a pushchair, preferably with something like a buggy board for the 5 year old. We did upwards of 40,000 steps a day!!! Also the fireworks are on quite late so they might be fractious!

DD 10 loved it. I thought it was shit, but it wasn’t for me.

Double buggy if possible, there's cheaper hotels in val d'europe if the Disney brand ones are too much. Could be baking hot and will be very very busy - 11 year old and 2 year old is a tricky combination
