    Welcome back! You've been missed!

    Wonderful that you've booked a DLP visit. It's been a while since we've been there, so I know others here will have great suggestions for you. I'll just address the comment about being worried you might be disappointed. DLP is nothing like WDW. But I honestly believe if you go into it not trying to compare the two, DLP is a fantastic experience. I love it there, especially in the main park. The atmosphere is exceptional. I feel like the Imagineers took everything they had learned at Disneyland and WDW and made it better. Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder, Space Mountain...just fantastic attractions. I like the food, I like the resorts, and while it feels a bit like Magic Kingdom when you walk down Main Street, DLP has a character all its own. Taking it on its own merits really does, IMO, give you a great experience.

    Thanks Susan I am going to try and go into it with an open mind and we have the full board dining plan - the plus one - so I am excited about trying the food. As we love disney in this house I am sure we will have a great time

    On a different note - I watched the maleficent film for the first time today what a great movie! It's been a very disney day in this house - we also have been doing star wars lego - a lovely chilled Sunday

    Welcome back. I had the same fears about it not measuring up before our first trip to Paris last summer, but can only echo what Susan has said. We loved it so much we went back 6 months later!

    Possibly the biggest tip is to book dining in advance where at all possible. The main restaurants book up well in advance, so the sooner you book, the better. Getting a good sit-down at regular intervals is important at DLP as you will do a LOT of walking! And, for lunch, don't forget the Disney Village area as it is usually a LOT less crowded than the parks. August will be busy as it's peak season in France, but making early starts and taking a break for lunch/early afternoon will help.

    Oh, and while it is certainly different to WDW, there is a LOT to enjoy there.

    I know sadly we are visiting at a busy time, but we are planning a 2 week trip to France and DH knew that to keep me happy that had to include DLP

    We have the "plus" dining package which includes at least 15 restaurants - I need to check which ones - but which would you say are your top 5?

    You are all making me very excited!

    They will be interesting to read as we are THINKING of doing 2 nights there this June. I looked on the Disney official site and they wanted around 1400 minimum for 2 nights per person with park tickets including Eurostar returns from London. 2800 for 2 nights i could have a week in Orlando for that.

    I found a website on line offering 2 nights at the Kyriad hotel which has free park shuttles with park tickets for 3 days, breakfast included for 236 per person, we'd just need to get our Eurostar tickets seperately but i can get those for 60 each so 296 per person for 2 nights seems a reasonable deal which includes the hotel, breakfast, park tickets and our train tickets.


    We could always go for 3 nights for 288 if we would need the 3 nights. I was thinking of arriving on the Monday afternoon then the Tuesday at one park, check out Wednesday morning and spend the day at the other park before returning home on the evening Eurostar. If that is too hectic we could always do the 3 nights.

    I'd go for 3 nights your first time, there is a lot to see and night time shows in both parks.
