What an awful place to visit, nothing but an overpriced paedophiles paradise, after earning a free 3 day trip for myself and my family, we genuinely expected this to be a once in a lifetime holiday...

It is once in a lifetime, i would honestly never spend 3 days with 2 children aged 7 and 1 anywhere in the world and have less to do, the highlights of the park were the park (as in childrens park with 2 slides) and the scenery ('nice' scenary)

The rides (what rides?) are literally scenary with little or no excitement, i checked google to find the top rides after day 1 thinking that we just have missed something, it turned out that we had already done the top attractions, leaving day 2 to try and find something fun within this ridiculously expensive mass of land (hence the park with 2 slides)

After hours spent queuing for rides that would be disappointing at a primary school Fayre, we decided to watch one of the shows, this turned out to be just as awful as the rides, the same song blaring out for hours upon hours with no connection to Disney, yes the characters are there, but they simply don't connect with anything, its just awful music, repeating itself, again, and again, and again, and again, and again....

My daughter had been massively looking forward to coming here and wanted to leave after 3 hours, even spending hundreds of euros in the shops barely helped matters, on day one she told me that 'this is the worst holiday you have ever taken us on'(and we've been to pontins!) on day 2 she told me that she doesn't want to sound ungrateful but, Alton towers is loads better (anyone who has been to both will agree)

Moving on to the juicy stuff

On day 1, although disgusted by the place, i tried to feed my family at tea time, we literally tried every restaurant in the Disney village, all were either full or entered via the wrong door and after queueing we were forced to go to another entrance that was not clearly marked,

After trying to spend a ridiculous amount of time in numerous places we eventually found somewhere that was capable of taking my money and putting something on a tray..... If I could swear here I would, we purchased 2 chicken wraps and a kids chicken nuggets, expecting as it's €42 that the food would be warm....

Nope, the type of thing you buy in a petrol station half way through an 11 hour journey because you are starving, only 15 times the price,

Day 3 will occur tomorrow and this is the most exciting day, simply because we get to go home, no one could possibly pay me enough money to take my family to this vile place again !

Disneyland Park is the larger of the two parks at Disneyland Paris (the other being Walt Disney Studios Park). If you have been to the Magic Kingdom in Orlando everything will seem very familiar ! You enter at Town Square running into Main Street which leads to Central Plaza with the highlight Sleeping Beauty Castle beyond. Radiating from this central point are four themed zones; Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Discoveryland. There is nothing quite like the Disney experience and this is true here. My only gripe was the poor planning that closed a number of key attractions for maintenance at the same time. That said, it remains a great experience for kids and adults alike. Well worth a visit !

It's hard not to be drawn into the magic. My wife and daughter really enjoyed every second of the visit to both parks. I tend to be a bit grumpy about paying over the odds for everything and spending all day queuing for 1 hr at time to go on a ride for 90 seconds! They will take all of your money and you will have to queue patiently but there's something special about the whole experience that makes you much more tolerant of the negative things. Everything is so well put together and the facilies are all clean and well stocked. It would be better if there were more places to eat at peak times and maybe a few more rides to keep the queues down a bit. The shows and parades are outstanding.

For all the grumbling though - you have to like it....and I will go again one day.

I have been in almost all the Disney parks in the world but this is the first time 50% of the rides have issues. Is almost impossible to cue and not get a technical issue or having the ride closed for maintenance.
This is really a shame

The rides are great and since Disney taking direct control the place is smarter and more like Florida, all good. But it’s still let down by terrible service in the food courts. A 30 minute wait for a burger with six people in front of you in the queue is a joke and being told a further 20 minuets wait for a burger without cheese is a joke. McDonald’s can do this stuff in 5 minutes! Even had to wait 15 minutes for a couple of ice creams with about 3 people in front. This stuff is easy to get right and it takes the shine off.
