Disneyland Resort Paris

Postby hansrubens » Sat Feb 07, 2009 6:56 am

Hi everyone,

First park of my new coaster season. Traditionally we go to Disney on the first week of february cause this time of year the crowds are light and the weather should be nice and it was.

We did have some snow but that was just part of the Disney winter experience.

There were no lines at all except for Crush Coaster which has a very low capacity and it has very bad operations. Now we only had a line of 20 -30 minutes but on crowded days this line is unbearable with lines exceeding 100 minutes.

On to the pics.

Great report Hans.

It's really to cold now for me to enjoy a themepark. I think my only Disney visit this year will be in California.

Thought "Laser Snake Horse" was real.

Thanks! Great pictures. I can't wait to get to DLPR. It is the only Disney resort I haven't been to. DLP is such a beautiful park.

Really great pictures, thanks for sharing. DLRP looks a way more relaxed than the Floridian or the Californian Disney Parks (Maybee it just was depending onthe date and the weather!), but anyway, great TR!

Did you go on Indiana Jones too? Isin't the Indiana Jones ride in paris different from the ones in California and Florida?
Best: | 1. Medusa (SFDK) | 2. Coaster (Playland) | 3. Behemoth (CW) | 4. Giant Dipper (SCBB) | 5. Titan (SFOT) Worst: | 1. Grizzly (CGA) | 2. Flight Deck (CW) | 3. Corkscrew (Playland) | 4. Dragon Fire (CW) | 5. Rainbow Chaser (Fun Forest)
- Rides don't hurt people, people do. (although some exceptions)

I know more about donkeys than women!

^ There is no Indy ride in Florida. The Indy in Paris is, I believe, very similar to a Pinfari looping-in other words, nowhere as good as Indy California.

Oh ok, sorry I've never been to any of the disneyl parks so I'm sorta unfamilliar.

A looping indiana jones ride, sounds cool. But maybe rough?
Best: | 1. Medusa (SFDK) | 2. Coaster (Playland) | 3. Behemoth (CW) | 4. Giant Dipper (SCBB) | 5. Titan (SFOT) Worst: | 1. Grizzly (CGA) | 2. Flight Deck (CW) | 3. Corkscrew (Playland) | 4. Dragon Fire (CW) | 5. Rainbow Chaser (Fun Forest)

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Cool report.

What did you think of Tower of Terror and have you been on the others? I thought it was the worst one simply as it was to bright, you could see the all the walls. Seeing as its the same as the one in California I did not even find it as good as that.

We also found Space Mountain really rough and I dont know what they have done to Thunder Mountain but it was running so slow when we went in October.
