Two theme parks in one - Disneyland Park with Sleeping Beauty's Castle and most of the well-known rides, and Walt Disney Studios Park with its cinema-studio ‘lots’, movie-themed shows and handful of rides – Disneyland Paris is within easy reach of both the French capital and London, the latter by direct Eurostar. It also has a range of hotels for all budgets, ranging from a fairytale palace to self-catering cabins.

Whether you’re going for the first time or thinking of making a return visit, there are plenty of reasons to book a Disney break for 2020. We’ve shared some of them.

Snow fun in Avoriaz, with Pierre & Vacances.

Unique amongst purpose-built and pedestrianised resorts where the taxis are sleighs drawn by horses! This high-altitude (1800m), ski-in ski-out plateau enjoys the best links to access the entire 650km Portes de Soleil ski area encompassing 12 different resorts in both France and Switzerland. It is perfect for families for a whole range of reasons and it’s only just over 90 minutes from Geneva:

• The beginner’s area in the protected Proclou offers nursery slopes that are totally separated from the advanced areas making this a very safe and confidence inspiring area to make those first turns.

• There are several snowparks all of which have a different focus, including Arare for experts and experienced freestylers featuring a big air bag, La Chapelle, close to the resort...

Horse riding at Holiday Village Normandy Garden.

Travelling by car means taking as many holiday toys (bikes, kayaks, games etc) as you like including the family pet! Plus it gives you the freedom to enjoy all the local activities and attractions under your own steam such as a historical theme park like Puy du Fou in the Vendée, a picnic on the secluded Calanque beaches in Provence, or joining in high octane adventures at ParcAventure in Normandy.

France remains a super popular holiday destination, partly for being so easy to reach, but more importantly for the vibrant cities, glamorous seaside resorts, relaxed rural retreats, stunning vineyards and, of course, the cuisine!

We’ve looked at the best destinations for a self-catering break and we think holiday villages offer the perfect solution for those travelling with...

Fun in the waterpark at Leonardo Laura Beach & Splash Resort, Cyprus.

Hotels and resorts with their very own water park or free access to one right nearby are hugely popular. They’re perfect for having fun together as a family or as places where older kids can go off and do their own thing without straying too far. And they’re also great for cooling down when the mercury rises.

We’ve brought you our hand-picked recommendations for family destinations with water parks or water-park access all over the world.

Mainland Spain
This is one of the warmest places in Europe, and offers family fun in abundance in the form of everything from sandy beaches, hidden coves, lively seaside resorts and cities and villages rich in culture and traditions to water parks, museums and nature reserves.

The super-stylish TUI SENSATORI Resort Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Easter is a great time of year for a family holiday – long enough for a proper getaway and long-haul travel, but with warm enough temperatures in parts of the Med for a European beach break too. We’ve shared our top overseas family holiday destinations for Easter.

Marrakech, Morocco   
This old walled city is the perfect destination for a long weekend and warm city break, with magical bazaars and winding alleys to get lost in and snake-charmers, storytellers and acrobats to wonder at in the medina’s main square.

Family time at Les Villages Nature® Paris.

Holidays that offer the ‘best of both worlds’ or ‘something for everyone’ – such as a combined seaside and city break, a camping holiday followed by a night or two’s splurge in a luxury resort, or a theme-park and countryside break – can be ideal for those travelling with children of all ages, ensuring variety and a welcome change of pace during the course of your getaway.

Theme-park holidays can be particularly full-on, and with all that fun and adrenaline it’s great to have somewhere peaceful to retire to and some quieter activities, such as those offered by Les Villages Nature® Paris, which is just an eight-minute drive from Disneyland Paris...

Family on the slopes in Andorra.

Those who’ve already skied or boarded in Andorra know that for a small country, it packs a big punch and is an ideal place to take to the slopes. Above all, this is a fantastic destination for family ski holidays, with masses of gentle green and blue runs to help build little ones’ confidence, some of the best English-speaking ski schools in Europe, and some hotels offering free kids’ clubs for ages 3–11 years. We’ve looked at what makes Andorra so special.

• Huge Investment in Ski Resorts
Andorra has invested 10s of millions of Euros in infrastructure over the last 5-10 years, meaning its resorts of Arinsal, El Tarter, Pas de la Casa and Soldeu have an almost purpose-built feel. Arinsal is great for families and beginners, with quieter, gentle slopes, excellent après...

Many holiday parcs have dog-friendly accommodation options. We’ve shared what you need to think about when booking a holiday with your dog in tow – and shared our favourite holiday parcs with dogs.

• Talk to your vet about your travel plans: where you’re going, how you’re travelling and what you plan to do there. He or she will give you all the information you need, including applying for your PETS passport.
