Queing for food, price of beer!

General Comments
Just come back from Disneyland Paris and have to say we thoroughly enjoyed it. I have no doubt that USA Disneyland is bigger and better, so go there then! But I can not really fault Paris.

Stayed at the Sequia Lodge, had a free upgrade on arrival which was much appreciated. On the whole the hotel was good, staff helpful etc, but the queues for breakfast were immense. Totally annoyed me on the first day, however then you realised that the queue actually moved very quickly and normally within 10 mins you were sat down and eating.

Food: ignore this at your peril: you will get sick of queuing for cold burger and chips. Fill up at breakfast and also make up rolls from breakfast and take them with you. It states that people are only allowed to "picnic" outside the park, however everyone takes their own food. It is worth it and can save you 100 euros on a 4 days break (assuming there are 3 of you).

Cafe Mickey: you have to book. When you walk past it on the way into the park, go in and book for that evening. Don't expect your kids to eat much as the distractions are immense. Food was much better than you probably have been eating although it arrived suspiciously quickly...2 adults and 1 child, 65 euros

Rain Forest cafe: personally don't bother. Food was worse than Cafe Mickey, nothing much happens in there and we paid 75 euros for the priviledge!

Buffalo Bills: brilliant show, great atmosphere, awful food, beer included in the cost of the show (2 adults, 1 child - 160 euros). Service was terrible - waiter had awful attitude and basically didn't give a hoot about whether or not you had your drink. Bbut the show more than made up for it, especially as other half got to fire a Winchester rifle! Little one also thoroughly enjoyed it!

Rides: enjoyed them all, especially the Tower of Terror in the studios. Clung on for dear life to some poor French girl who probably still has the bruises.

Fast Pass: great idea, but they don't tell you how long you will have to wait even with a fast pass. Tower of Terror, used fast pass, but still had to wait 30 mins to actually get on it.

Baby switch: brilliant! Such a simple idea which worked a treat... Cost of beer: 6.50 for a pint!



Overall thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be going back!

Well, indeed, Paris' Magic Kingdom is the biggest Disney Magic Kingdom Park ever built on Earth. Moreover, this park is considered by the fans and Disney itself as its masterpiece (along with Tokyo Disney's Sea). Some awesome attractions, like Splash Mountain or Indiana Jones Adventure, might be missing, but the thing is that all the great Disney rides like Space Mountain, the Haunted Mansion or Pirates of the Carribean have been improved as much as possible.
<br/>
<br/>The Imagineers (Disney Attractions and Resorts creators) redesigned this park from the original Californian park, and made the best Magic Kingdom so far. Big Thunder Mountain is set on an island, the pink castle is absolutely wonderful conpared to its American, Japenese and Chinese counterparts, and everything is much more detailed.
<br/>
<br/>But the second gate, the Walt Disney Studios, isn't as good as it's neigbor at the moment, that's right. And Walt Disney World is definetly (really) bigger.
