have you been to eurodisney

G'day my fellow Australians. Just wondering if any of you have been to Eurodisney. We don't have kids, but I am a big kid at heart. What else is there around the area. We will only be there 2 days (thats all i can convince the wife for).

Not staying in the Disney Hotels as they seam to expensive. What are your tips and suggestions.

cheers

H/Z I have never been to Eurodisney but we have been to Paris numerous times due to business (not a snob!)..so we do know Paris extremely well if you need any tips..ie..restaurants/ cafés or better still for your dear wife the "wholesale areas" to shop till you drop !

Give me a PM if you need any assistance ...hubby always wanted to go to Eurodisney but I'm not a great fan of any amusement park and never have been..however, we did try out Luna Park after walking across SHB the other week and had a ball !

A work colleague once took his kids to Eurodisney and left fifteen minutes later, cancelled his hotel and went straight to Versailles.

He is an avid Christian and felt it was to much of a bad influence on his kids and there was a lot of black magic and commercialism in the park that he does not want his kids exposed to.

He also will not allow his kids read Harry Potter because its black magic and nobody should be encouraging this type of activity.

So, the parks are not for everyone just for the ones who like to enjoy themselves.

Just to annoy you a bit I was checking flights to Paris and two adults return from where I live to Paris is €49 return in TOTAL.

Im paying €2956 to get to Perth next year. Im sure your going to be paying something similar to get to Paris.

For two nights on the 1st March for two adults in hotel Santa Fe in Disneyland is $798AUD. Expensive stuff and cheapest hotel.

I'm not an Aussie, but a Brit that has just come back from Disneyland Paris!

I would say that you can spend a couple of days there. The parks are nicely laid out and there are things to enjoy not just the rides. We had a nice trip on a mock paddle-steamer around the Big Thunder Mountain lake (very peaceful) and also went up in the Panorama (tethered balloon that goes up for view across countryside).

We stayed at the Sequoia Lodge and the rate included parks admission. Having looked up various hotels in the area, I found that those within very easy reach of the park were not significantly cheaper especially with parks admission added on top. I think you would have to stay quite a bit further out and maybe have a car to benefit from cheaper hotel prices.

If you were staying in Paris itself, it might be worth keeping that as a base and travelling on the RER direct to Disneyland. Its only about 40 mins. The train arrives close to the park entrances.

You can get a pass for one park only or for both parks in the same day. We did find that if you want 3 days then its only a euro or two more expensive for a years pass and you get 10% off merchandise and food!
