There are two parks to visit in Disneyland Paris, the Disney Studios and Disneyland Park. We bought a two day hopper ticket which allows you unlimited entry to both parks. Ticket prices are expensive at 103 euros for a two day pass per adult and sadly not much of a reduction for children - 87 euros. Oh and according to Disney Children cease to become children at twelve years young! All attractions were open in Disneyland Park but quite a few new attractions in Disney Studios don't open until later in the Summer. The parks are open from 10.00 till 19.00 Disney Studios close one hour earlier, peak summer hours are until 23..00
Fondest memory: For beauty, both natural and imagined it has to be Disneyland Park, such a pleasant place to enjoy. For fans of films and characters it has to be Walt Disney Studios with its almost harsh reality of film sets but if you look hard enough you will always find some beauty here too.
Name: Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Opening: January 2008
This ride will be the same as the one in Disney's California Adventure. The one in Orlando is slightly different.
From all the thrill rides I did in one of the Disneylands, the Tower of Terror is ansolutely the best!!!
For more info: visit DCA or check my homepage.
The picture shows the tower on 2006 January 2th.
Magical! Step into the tales of thousand and one nights. This part of the park is much more enchanting as dusk falls.
Notice that at the time the night pararade is going out, you wont be able to cross Central Plaza anymore until the parade has passed.
this was the best part of the visit, a Disney autograph book filled with character`s autographs is a great souvenir for your little ones, and what fun to see that the characters behave off screen just as they do onscreen,
petulant King John from Robin Hood was the funniest, he was trying so hard to be imperial but just resmbled a spoilt child, Tweedledum`s use of our grandsons pen to pick his nose made our little ones giggle, and poor Eeyore, of course you cant have his autograph, for he has no fingers, so all you can have is a hug
you may have to queue for a very very long time to meet the most popular characters such as the Disney Princesses, Mickey Mose, Winnie the Pooh and Donald Duck, our grandsons favourite Disney character is Donald Duck so he was the only one we queued for, and it was worth every cold damp minute to us to see him getting his wish
this was our daughter`s must-see thing, there are shows throughout the day in English and in French and the tickets for the show are given out at the train station in Discoveryworld, check your park map for times, you will need a ticket as this show is very popular
we all enjoyed the show immensely, it is a very condensed version of the popular Lion King show currently running in London`s theatreland, you are allowed to take photographs without flash only
this is a really charming ride, take your seat in a small galleon and then fly through the air over London and onto Never Never land, passing by scenes from the Peter Pan film, we all enjoyed this ride immensely
there may be long queues for this ride, so use the Fast Pass system to avoid having to wait in line for long
If car chases and stunt action are your thing then you`ll love this show, and you get a great insight into how stunts are staged and edited into films
there is also a chance for audience participation, our son became a film extra for the show and had to be shot at by a sniper, I suspect he was a little disappointed not to have been given a stunt car to drive, but the staff have obviously heard about his driving skills and wouldnt allow him behind the wheel
you need to get here 30 minutes before the show starts especially at peak times, and the show lasts about 35 minutes, check the park map for show times
Oh how OTT is this gentle ride.... its ubelievably CUTE and ends just before you get sick of the saccharine sweet little people, but the music.... AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHH its a real ear worm, you`ll hear it all day, and for many days to come, its playing in my head right now as I write
da da da dee dee, da da da dum dum, da da DEE DEE DEE da da DUM DUM DUM.......
this is a lovely, gentle float through a miniature woirld, forget the glaring discrepancies like the Maori with the kangaroo and boomerang, and just enjoy
Fondest memory: if you are nearby as the hour strikes look out for the clock chimimg and the procession of small figures moving around
This is a real must see, but it may be a touch scarey for little ones,
Imagine yourself in a big disaster movie, or better still imagine yourself in a real space craft during a meteor storm, theres a big crash.... your ship had been badly hit ! smoke, flames, collapsing walls you really feel that its all happening, it gives you a real adrenaline buzz
the craft shown here which is outside the Armageddon building is a copy of the one used in the film
given the choice our little ones preferred Uncle Christian over Grandad to take them on this ride, because Uncle Chris spins much faster, however much to their disappointment Uncle Chris could only manage two goes back to back before becoming too queasy to carry on
its a real fun ride though, and definately a favourite with our grandchildren
Fondest memory: n
this starts off as a tour explaining about studio sets and special effects, but you get a big thrill in the middle
the tram stops at a `film set` where a tanker is rigged to explode, its very noisy and very hot ! then suddenly almost 250,000 litres of water come hurtling down from the top of the set, you think its going to go all over you ! but it doesnt, well, just a little bit of it does but not a lot
then you carry on with the tour, seeing sets and props from Dinotopia, and a great collection of classic cars
Fondest memory: my fondest memory is of the expression on camcorderman`s face when he saw all the water rushing down the set towards him !
Lots of visitors stroll in the Liberty Arcade, but few of them stop to take a look through the display windows facing the shops. A pity... however interesting. Where was the statue built? Who built it? How was it shipped to NY? I learned all kind of petty facts about the Statue. In my opinion, a good exhibition!
If you have some time left... or, while your spouse is shopping and you hate it...
In fact you're not supposed to bring your own food into the parks. There is a special picnic area next to Disney Village at the back of restaurant "Annette's", just where the traveling apron from the parking lot to the park ends.
But... no living soul there. Never! Not in Winter, nor in Summer!
This is France... very tolerant and comprehensive ;-)

There are various tickets you can buy.
For 40 euros you have a day in either park, but if you chose to go to Walt Disney Studios for the day 3 hours before Disneyland closes you can go across to Disneyland.
For 49 Euros you can buy a 1 day ticket, and move between the two parks as you please with no restrictions.
You can also buy a 2 and 3 day ticket for 89 euros and 109 euros respectively, with these you can move between parks freely too.
