“Watching the Americans is fun as well!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I visited Disneyland Paris more recently and the contrast between the two parks is really marked. Disneyland is the real thing; an American theme park in the USA and that's a big part of what makes it so much fun. The cast members were polite and helpful, there were actors in character wandering about and, although expensive, what you get is almost worth it. Lot's of very long queues allowed me to watch the Americans, which was most amusing.

On the negative side, Disney is a rapacious business and that showed pretty clearly in their attempts to flog expensive tat and manipulate you to buy overpriced, very unhealthy snacks. Could anything be more American?

If ever I find myself within driving distance again, I'll be back..

“Never gets old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Our last trip was our last hoorah before our first child gets here. Even at 100 degrees and 6 months pregnant, I had a fun time! I can't wait to bring our little girl back!

“Family Attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

My Partner and I went to Disneyland and California Adventure on a 2 day park hopper pass, Disneyland has very little adult rides the two we enjoyed were the star wars ride and splash mountain (space mountain was closed for maintenance). The line to get photos with the characters was always long and quite frequently you would get close to getting your photo and that character would have to go to join the band or something highly frustrating.
You could also only get one fast pass at a time which was typically for 2 hours later so there was always quite a wait at Disneyland compared to California Adventure where spending 30 minutes getting all the fast passes at the beginning of the day meant for short lines and a lot of rides.
My advise if you don't have kids only one day is enough at Disneyland otherwise California adventure is amazing and you need the two days.

“Halloween at Disneyland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

One of our favorite times to vist Disneyland is during Halloween! On weekends, you can take your little ones as well as your teens to Disneyland and California Adventure Park to go trick or treating in California Adventure and the teens can go rock out at Mad Hatters Tea Party over by Monsters Inc. They do allow the kids to dress up and the adults do as well as long as its age apporpriate. The Halloween decorations are scary and fun! Inside Disneyland make sure you go and hit Haunted Mansion which turns into Jack Skeletons House from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas! The fireworks is a Halloween theme and always exciting and fun to watch! For the older kids, take a ride on Space Mt. they turn it up a few notches and its to scream for!! In California Adventure, you will get a map that shows where the little ones can go trick or treating and get some candy, or a healthy snack. Look for the evil characters that roam the park,and try and get a photo with them. Halloween is a fun time at both parks and if you haven't been you should at least try it once and like us you will return almost 6 times for the Halloween fun in Disneyland. Happy Travels!

“The Happiest Place on Earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

No one does it like the Walt Disney Company. Holiday time is DLR at it's best. All the rides and attractions are always being refurbished and kept looking as nice as possible. The park is always clean and there are droves of Cast members keeping things tidy as well as safe.
