I have written 36 blogs about the Disneyland Paris Resort, and I've barely just scratched the surface.
Although the Walt Disney World resort is larger, take a look at how many pages the Allears.net website includes to try to describe everything. A Paris website would also have to be enormous to cover all of the information there is about the resort. My goal was simply to give you an overview and try to point out some of the highlights.
As I've mentioned earlier, Disneyland Paris is my favorite of the five Magic Kingdom-type parks. And it's my second favorite Disney park after Tokyo DisneySea. If you're into theme parks, you definitely should see this one.
I know I was somewhat harsh in my description of the Walt Disney Studios Park. But I haven't been there in three and a half years and the Imagineers are making some decent progress to bring it up to snuff. It is worth seeing.
Also, the overall resort is very nice. I've spoken to many Disney World fans that tell me they enjoy hotel-hopping. They find pleasure discovering what each inn has to offer, even if they never stay there. Well, there are six themed hotels to explore at Disneyland Paris. Not to mention Disney Village and all of its shops and restaurants.
As I mentioned in my first blog, I would try to separate the Disney portion of my trip from the rest of my European travels. Plan on spending two or three nights at Disney and immerse yourself in the magic. I feel that you should plan on spending two full days at the Disneyland Paris Park. You can see everything in less time, but I can guarantee you that you'll want to experience a number of the attractions twice - maybe more.
I think most guests could see all of the Walt Disney Studios Park in one full day. This would leave you some time to see CinéMagique twice.
I would avoid visiting in the winter. It gets cold! Very cold! It snows.
Well that's it. I'm going to post a few more pictures just to whet your appetite.
