i say avoid

Hi, we just come back from 5 days at disney paris and and have been to florida 3 times before and i will never go back to paris. it is grubby, with cigarette butts on the floor every where, litter being left, graffiti in the waiting areas of rides esp on the haunted mansion. the french pushing and shoving and really poor cust service in the shops as no one wants to look at you. we complained to the manager of hotel cheyene and she said that its the culture difference. also this is the reason why the rides never get updated as they do in usa. the cost of food is huge so all i can say is avoid because you will be dissapointed if youve been to Walt disney world.

It is almost like dlp and wdw are run by 2 different companies, i would rather save and back to florida anyday.

Have to say we have been to DLP twice & we have been disapointed twice.
We, like you thought people were rude, hated people walking about smoking or standing in queues smoking ! Food was very expensive & not always that great imho.
We would not go back as it is just so expensive & if you have been to WDW then you can't help but compare.
Sorry you didn't have a good holiday.x

if you go to DLP with the fact that ur in france in your mind you will think of it as a totally different experience, we went back in august, and we had no expectations, and tried very hard not to compare it as it just isnt florida, we enjoyed it for what it was, sorry you really didnt like it, I dont know if we'd hurry back either, but it was an experience, and I think people shoud try it out for themselves,
Our ds really enjoyed it, as we all did, we werent at home!

This is pretty much the case, the Disney company only actually owns about 40% of DLP.
The resort is run by Euro Disney S.C.A, with another 10% owned by a Saudi prince and the other 50% by various shareholders.

Sorry to hear you didnt have a good time, We have been to DLP 4 times and Florida 10 times, We visited Florida first, there really is no camparison, We also find it very grubby, cast members rude, food expensive and the overall atmosphere just isnt there for us, plus the hotels just lack the Disney feel! I doubt very much if we'll ever return to DLP, it's fine for a short get away, 2/3 nights is fine occasionally, but we could never visit on a regular basis, there just isnt enough there to justify returning, I think you have to look at DLP for what it is... a short break untill you can return to Orlando! :-) X.X

Have been to DLP twice and it is O.K. if you have nothing to compare it with but it is basically like English theme parks, no atmosphere and very, very expensive just to go for a short stay. I probably would not bother going back unless the prices were greatly reduced.
