Marne-la-Vallée Things to Do

  • Star tours - ummm

    When motion simulators were first around they seemed pretty cutting edge - but unless you are under the age of about 8 they seem pretty much run-of-the mill now.THis one is about some kind of space flight, zapping a few aliens and landing. Whilst my five year old loved it, I found more interest in the waiting area which features the robots from...

  • The rides of Disney.

    It would be fair to say that the 'Disneyland' part of things is aimed quite clearly at the younger age group. There are only two rides that have a 1m40 height restriction on them. These are the two larger rollercoasters. The 'sister' park of the Walt Disney studios is also probably more tuned to teenagers and older. Still, with a five year old and...

  • Star Tours

    Where?In the Discoveryland zone, close to the Space Mountain 2 (look for the jet!)What?A simulator ride that first takes you through a Star Wars-themed airport (which would take the prize for the best queue zone in the park, I think :) ) and then on a ride to the Moon of Endor. As you queue, you can see filmed 'commercials' inviting you to visit...

  • Self Service & a bit of cleaning

    We stopped here for a rest and a serious need for some coffee. Kyle was about to eat his candy floss when we noticed the glass topped tables were very dirty indeed. Fishing in my bag for a wet wipe soon solved the problem but really - self service OK - but not self cleaning - I would expect better but apart from the cashiers in side taking your...

  • Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show part I

    While you are at Eurodisney, you should go to Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This is a show with horses/buffalo's/some Disney figures while you are eating. It is such a great show and amazing thing to see!! If you are a vegetarian (like me), you should ask for it while you are showing your entrance card to the people. You will get a card that says...

    At Planet Hollywood you can order various dishes. Fries, burgers, salmon... I had salmon, mashed potatoes and vegetables. Really lovely and tasty!!

  • Games in the Hotel

    My kids loved the night at the hotel, balloons, paintings and the big one... the games room.With almost 2 euros a game you can stay some time playing with different machines.My kids loved the one on the pic.

Marne-la-Vallée Transportation

  • How to do a 'day trip'

    It is possible to visit Disneyland Paris from many places around Europe on a 'day trip'. Few realise that the connection from Charles de Gaulle airport to Marne-la-valle takes a mere 10 minutes and there is a train roughly every hour.Now all you need is an early flight in and a late flight out...I quickly checked out easyjet - and you can get a 6am...

  • Disneyland from London: Eurostar

    Paris and Lille today are not the only French locations accessible directly with a Eurostar from London. In fact, there is a direct train to Disneyland itself, which makes the park a very convenient weekend trip from London (if you only want amusement parks, that is). I took it several times Saturday morning (it actually leaves at a decent time, no...

    more
  • Train

    As there is a stop at Eurodisney, I went to Eurodisney by train. From any station in the Netherlands you can go to Brussels South. From Brussels South the train goes to Marne-la-Vallee. For the last part (Brussels South to Marne-la-Vallee) you have to make a reservation.

Marne-la-Vallée Shopping

  • Not all expensive tat

    Whilst my better half seemed to regard Disneyland Paris as more of a shopping centre than a theme park, Its difficult to avoid the corporation of the mouse trying to flog you yet more unwanted stuff.I am now the proud owner of a tee-shirt with a dwarf on it which pronouces that I am '100% Grumpy'. I object to that - I'm always 110% !Most prices are...

  • Clothes for the kids

    At the Disneyparc there is a shop where you can buy dresses/suits for the little ones. So, if your kid wants to look like Snow white, Cinderellam or Peter Pan, go to this shop and buy an outfit.

  • Last Chance to Shop

    Arriving at the Airport we realised we hadn't bought a thank you gift for our Son who was left at home looking after the dog. Problem solved = we had some time before our flight, enough to browse the airport's shops. We eventually choose a boxed set of French Beers. The shops had a wide selection of all kinds of everything but we knew Fraser would...

Marne-la-Vallée Local Customs

  • Sorting out the fastpass sysytem !

    Despite the French haveing a reputation abroad for being just a touch (understatement) arrogant and genetically incapable of understanding the concept of waiting your turn in a queue, I must admit they seemed to go against they sterotype when I was there at least.There is nothing worse than being in a queue and then seeinging someone 'jump' it at a...

  • Dapper Dan's Haircuts

    Most tourists just don't notice this barber shop. Too bad, cause when you want to have a haircut or a beard cut style 100 years ago, this is the place to be! The shop is not open every day. Information at the City Hall on Town Square.

    more
  • Disney Railroad

    If there is a queue at the stations of the Disneyland Railroad - don't wait! Walk where you want to go - it's faster. The queues are long and the train only comes every ten minutes. You never know how many people get off at your stop so you don't know how many get on. The ride has some nice areas but you are outside the park in the forest for a...

Marne-la-Vallée Warnings and Dangers

  • Time to re-mortgage the house

    There is website called 'dad's guide to disney' that has a section on ticket prices to Disney parks entitled 'A history of Misery'. Superb.The misery is not only in their raw cost (53 euro for one park at time of writing for adults and 48 for kids), but you also have to queue up for an hour or more at the entrance to actually get the damn...

  • Disneyland in "High Season"

    LOL! Forewarned, forearmed!Tip: weekdays outside the European schoolvactions are calm days. No queues, no stress.

  • Blanche Neige (Snowwhite) is not that...

    Just a warning... a joyful little ride with your kids in the attraction of Snowwhite can turn into a real nightmare for your little ones. This place is a pure creep show, worse than the "Phantom Manor".(talking about what we experienced with our kids lots of years ago... and the attraction didn't change since)Now I'm writing about haunted houses......

Marne-la-Vallée Tourist Traps

  • The world's biggest tourist trap ?

    If the exhorbitant cost of going to Disneyland Paris wasn't bad enough, they will sting you for another 15 euro to park your car....sound of coughing and calling into question the illigitimacy of Disney managers...15 bloody euro. I would expect that Sleeping beauty would wash it..topless.. whilst I was in the park.I tried to work out if you could...

  • Disneyland shops

    All shops in Disneyland and Disney Village are splendid. The marvellous decors are unique. Their window dressing is perfect! I can spend hours admiring the theming of these shops.But... and maybe visitors don't remark this at once... all shops sell the same useless junk.Nice to see and very tempting the first time you visit the park, but tell me......

  • Autopia

    This 50's "superhighway of the future" is great! The two-cycle engines make a nice humming sound and little kids can drive their own gasonline car . Only one pedal, very easy and not dangerous at all.This attraction is one of my favorites!Too bad it's almost always..................closed, yes....And when it's open... count at least 45 minutes...

Marne-la-Vallée What to Pack

  • Save yourself quite a few euro

    It is a bit of an urban myth that Disney parks don't allow you to bring in your own food for a picnic or drink - it is untrue.Of course, Disney would like you to feed yet more euros down the greedy mouth of their megacorporation mouth by stuffing your own mouth with their Mickey Mouse Burgers. At least other theme parks like Alton Towers allow...

  • READY FOR THE RAIN

    dont forget to bring comfortable shoes, you`ll be doing a lot of walking here, in fact bring two pairs, the surfaces are very uneven and when it rains there are LOTS of puddles, you`ll be glad of dry shoes the next daywaterproofs are highly recommended, if you dont bring one then you`ll need to buy one of these stylish capes, which cost 7 euro...

    more
  • Be prepared for all weather

    Wear a pair of comfortable walking shoes. The distances you need to walk are huge. Especially when you plan to switch from one park to another. Also take out a least 20 minutes to walk back to your hotel.Most attractions in Disney are indoor and the queues are mostly protected from the rain too. So don't let the rain spoil your journey. A casual/...

Marne-la-Vallée Off The Beaten Path

  • Alice's Curious Labyrinth

    Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a maze attraction in the Fantasyland world of Disneyland Paris. Being a labyrinth, there are never any queues so it's a handy one to visit while you're waiting for your Fastpass time slot. For us, it's also a special location - having a huge Cheshire Cat as one of the characters. In addition, if seen from above, the...

  • Le Pays des Contes de Fées

    Where?In the Fantasyland zoneWhat?The attraction is an outdoor boat ride through a winding canal past some of the classic Dieny cartoon scenes to music from the same cartoons. In Disneyland (and to those of us more familiar with English than French), the attraction known as Storybook Land. Here's what you see:- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: the...

  • Casey Jr. Circus Train

    Where?In the Fantasyland zone, nearby the Storybook LandWhat?Casey Jr. Circus Train is one of the few attractions that are, I think, unique to Disneyland Paris. You board one of the carriages and the train goes past the miniature versions of scenes of Disney's best known cartoons - these are the same scenes that you would see from the Storybook...

Marne-la-Vallée Sports & Outdoors

    If you are staying at one of the Disney Hotels many of them have swimming pools and gyms. The New York Hotel has an ice skating rink and tennis court.Disneyland Paris also has its own Golf club. Three 9 hole courses, which can all be used together or seperately. If using the golf course is in your plans to Disney it is worth checking they do not...

  • The low down on the Parks

    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...

    Enthusiast roller coaster fans will know that at the end of the day, the wheels of the train are hot. It's the best moment to go for a ride. More speed and less jolts. Enjoy!
