    The ranch you are staying at (can't remember the name) is awesome! At least it was when I went about 15 years ago! Had the best time there.

    In regards to Disneyland Paris, I wasn't overly excited by it to be honest. It may be because I had been to the parks in Orlando a number of time before and Paris will always struggle in comparison. If this is your first experience of a Disneyland park, you will have a great time!

    Oh and reading your previous post, 2 days was plenty for us.

    So glad you thought the Davie Crockett Ranch was good. I was a bit wary of booking that instead of a hotel! Thanks for your reply. I am so excited to go! Only 30 days now. Yes...I am counting

    Tbh you probably don't need a disney guide but I suppose it does no harm to get one. When you get into the main park be sure to pick up a map and times guide for the day which if I remember rightly are under the train station bridge that leads to main street

    So now I'm not going to Disneyland my car went to get serviced yesterday before we left to make sure it would be ok for driving such a long distance and it's basically been written off. The sump is about the burst, the breaks are too worn out, the tired need changed, the exhaust is blown, the gaskett is faulty, the engine is bust. Basically everything is wrong with it. So I've had to cancel my holiday and buy a new car. The money I could have spent renting a car for the holiday, I could just spend on a second hand car. I'm pretty bummed about missing my holiday but my safety is more important. Family said they would send me back to Reykjavik next year for a week instead

    One of Europe's most popular tourist destinations, Disneyland Paris is a fantastic place to visit for all the family. It is a small piece of Disney away from the United States of America, but still manages to bring a fantastic experience to every one of its millions of visitors each year.

    Opening its doors for the first time on 12 April 1992, Disneyland Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallee, a town in the east of Paris, the French capital. It was decided to build a Disney Resort in Paris after the resounding success of both the Disneyland resorts in California and Florida as well the first Disneyland to be built out of America, the 1983 opening of Tokyo Disneyland. Taking four years to build, work began on Disneyland Paris in 1988. There was much debate to where the site should be, with a preliminary list of 1,200 possible places. Reduced to a mere four, the two Spanish sites were disregarded due to foreseeable construction problems, leaving Toulon and Marne-la-Vallee in France. After much discussion, the latter was chosen for the fact it would be less than a four hour drive for nearly 70 million people and short 2 hour flight for over 300 million more.

    The Disneyland Paris complex consists of three main areas, which can be broken down into -

    Hotels - Built over the entrance to the Disneyland Park, the hotel is widely regarded as the most impressive hotel in the whole area. Disney have also provided guests with a selection of other hotels, or built around 'Lake Disney' and themed to their high expectations. Whilst there are several Disney run hotels on site, there are a selection of other hotels that cater for all tastes and, more importantly, budgets. None of the hotels are actually based on the Disneyland site, however a free shuttle bus is provided throughout the day.

    Disneyland Park - the actual place where most people consider 'Disneyland' is Disneyland Park, the 140acre site where almost fifty attractions are housed. Split into five separate 'lands', each is themed around a specific Disney idea. Main Street, USA features, as expected, several American based rides whilst Frontierland has many cowboy and Indian themed rides, including the famous Big Thunder Mountain. The final three lands, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland all feature some spectacular rides and attractions, themed so fantastically and to such an extent it's difficult to believe you're not part of a cartoon or movie!

    Extra attractions - Whilst most would be content with the fantastic hotels and masses of rides in Disneyland Park, Disney decided that a selection of extra attractions would make the complex that extra bit special. Starting with Disneyland Village, which features a wide selection of restaurants and shops (themed by Disney, of course) there's a variety of other attractions, including two separate golf courses.

    There are many Disney theme parks around the world, each designed, themed and created professionally by Disney. Each Disney theme park around the world will be slightly different, but each guarantee that you will have a great time, whatever your age.
