It's funny as I actually ended up coming WDW with DLP whilst we were there. Big Thunder at DLP is FAR better, as is Buzz and Rock N Roller. The main park is beautiful with so many places to go and take great pics. I definitely would consider it, but I would suggest combining it with seeing other parts of Paris too.

Space Mountain and POTC are far superior too.

Yes - those too! Plus the dragon and going upstairs in the castle is great.

With no school age children you would have been better going in term time during the week. At 8am when we get there for EMH the park is empty!

Depends where you go. France doesn't have much of a fast food culture, and the CS options are mixed (Earl of Sandwich and the croque monsieur from Market House Deli are our faves, also Colonel Hathi's Pizza).

The TS restaurants, however, are superb. Walt's, Blue Lagoon, Manhattan, Yacht Club and California Grill all have wonderful food and gracious service.

And for a fun relaxed meal there's Annette's or Cafe Mickey.

And don't forget Inventions character buffet, a favourite of many.

This is another example of how you need to 'think European' to get the best out of DLP!

I hated DLP it just isn't the same, this is only my opinion and loads will come along and say its great, but its not for us.
Ditto!

It was ok but I wont be rushing back. Thought the service levels weren't great either.

I am waiting for my first trip to WDW so I can't compare. I have been to DLP three times over the last 7 years and have enjoyed every trip. I have always managed to get 50% off by looking out for the special offers.

I have become more aware myself if you go looking for problems or for something to not be as good then that is what you will find. If you look for the positives and aim to have fun then that is what you will get.

On the whole I have found the parks to be clean, CMs friendly and willing to joke around with you. Charactors can be a scrum but more often than not if they see you being pushed back they will move others to the side to get to you. Tigger was very good at this!

Totally agree, we haven't been to WDW yet either, but have been to DLP 3 times, and are going back in November for trip number 4. We love DLP and have never had any issues as described in previous messages, I can't remember ever meeting a rude CM, and have not had any complaints about the food... yes people smoke, but they smoke at Chessington when they're not supposed to.
