    If you could change just ONE thing at Disneyland Paris, what would it be?

    Maybe to an attraction, or in general.

    Queuing for the characters - I wish the CMs looking after the characters would create and enforce a line like they do at WDW. It's absolute bedlam and we've stopped trying to get photos with them, unless there's a really rare character out. I hate being pushed and I hate pushing other people.

    Same goes for the buses, but you did say one thing :)

    I'm torn between a few things (food prices, smoking) but think I'd opt for better crowd management - that covers a lot of things! :hehe:

    Move it from France :notlook:

    But yes crowd control should be better, the food prices are stupid but that is down to the exchange rate at present. I love some of the rides as they are actually better that Disney World (POTC, BTMR, ToT, RnR).

    I would love them to do an EPCOT version there

    :lol:


    I was between food prices and crowd control too - or really, prices in general. Hotels are stupid, stupid expensive to stay at, and even worse with the Euro as it is now. I was thinking of maybe a summer visit to DLP to get a little Disney fix, but 3 nights at Cheyenne with passes would be over £500. I didn't even check the DLH!! Maybe I'm just used to going off-season in January!

    Have you looked at some of the Hotels just away from DLP, there are the usual chains in the next village/Town with only a 10 min drive or the train to DLP

    We don't even consider going there anymore. We'd rather save up and go to Florida for longer. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it when we went, but I prefer going to Florida as we can take our time rather than feel we have to rush around.

    We've stayed at the Holiday Inn and the Dream Castle (or whatever it's called now!) just round the corner, but I haven't thought of staying a bit further afield!

    We're used to taking the RER, so that might be an option for next time!

    My initial reaction was the same as Red's....get it out of France :lol:

    The main thing that infuriates me is their different rules on disabled access to rides e.g DS is not allowed to ride things like Peter Pan in Paris but it is ok in WDW. We can't go there any more as DS does not understand why he can't go on some of his favourite rides. For those that don't know they have a two tier system and depending on your disabilities gets you a pass, each one allowing access to different rides and attractions.

    I would have to go with crowd/queue control. It's absolute mayhem and I bet the US visitors are gobsmacked by the lack of organisation. We used to go regularly but it's so expensive for what it offers now with the poor exchange rate, we rarely consider it. We'd rather put the money towards our flights to the USA.

    Refurb Davy Crockett resort - it was old and tired when we went and not worthy of the Disney name.

    For me as a Euro country citizen, I'm very happy with the food and merchandise prices. Not so happy with the hotel prices though.

    I'd love to see a third parc in DLP :)

    Isnt there somewhere (i think in Germany?) thats like a mini Epcot? I remember seeing it on TV once and it even had a small Geosphere a la Spaceship Earth.

    Back on topic though :oops: It would have to be overall cost of everything. Even with the year round offers, going peak season is hard to justify. (WDW is catching up quick too sadly)

    Agree about R’n’R, it’s definitely a blander version of the ride, although not a bad attraction overall.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks RnRC at DLRP isn't as smooth as the one at WDW. Sadly I'm with majority of people who cite crowd control as the one thing to change. I was thinking about going back for the 20th anniversary next year, but, I would rather save the extra and go back to WDW low season.

    RnR may not be as smooth in Paris, but it does feel much quicker than the Florida RnR, was in Paris last September then Florida October and the Florida version felt very very slow in comparison
