    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 things.

    The lesson here is that you really need to purchase your tickets before arriving - saving both time and money.

    I managed to find 'Billitte ete' (or something like that) tickets on the Disney site. They charged an almost reasonable 29 euro (adults and kids) with a second day free (but must be taken at least 7 days after the first and by end of sept). I think it is intended for the french only - you had to give french address to deliver them to. I printed out the tickets at home after giving the site the hotel address ! - this worked fine apart from the fact still had to queue to exchange my paper voucher for a 'real' ticket -a whole bloody hour !

    Blanche Neige (Snowwhite) is not that cute!

    Blanche Neige, Disneyland Paris

    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... the attraction "Pinoccio" is the same style, whether less creepy than Snowwite.
    Don't worry, If your kids are tough, they will probably survive ;-)

  • Train ticket trap

    RER ticket

    Buy your train tickets and your ticket for the park at a RATP office in a station in Paris before you go. Queues at the entrance - and on the way back at the ticket machines - are long!
    After the park closed we spent 30 minutes in a queue for a train ticket - more than in any queue at Disneyland itself!!!! Blaming the Euro.... ;-)

    When you see this sign, turn around. A bientôt is French for goodbye. Except for when you are absolutely sure you want to leave, don’t pass this sign.

    Aaaargh

    Beware! Enter the rides on your own risk. If you have heart or back problem it is advisable not to go on the rides. But there is so much more to do, you won’t get bored here easily.
