Disneyland Paris Trip Reports


Robin Goble and Larry Wilmot - July 2005

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Plane
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Infant, Teen, Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Novice, Frequent
  • Comments: Frequent trip report writers Robin Goble and Larry Wilmot decided to safe space on the internet and combine their efforts into a single report after visiting Disneyland Paris together this last summer.

Greg Ferguson - May 2005

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane
  • Resort: NBR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: This isn't the first tript o Disneyland Paris for Greg and his wife but it is the first in almost 10 years and he is able to see how the resort has changed over the decade.

Larry Wilmot - October 2004

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: You'll find this hard to believe about a Larry Wilmot trip report, but this one is just overflowing with sarcasm, wit, and strange punctuation. Perhaps growing weary of Walt Disney World, Larry and friends (and family) head to Disneyland Paris.

Saskia Linders - April 2004

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: SL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: It isn't often that we get Disneyland Paris trip reports from people able to drive there. But Saskia lives in The Netherlands and it is her local park. But some things just don't change and her family thinks it a bit odd that she and her partner are returning so soon after their last visit.

Tobias Schulz - December 2003

  • Time of Year: Holiday
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: SL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Tobias knew he wanted to go back to Disneyland Paris over the holidays and a surprise gift for his mom's birthday was a pretty good hook. His dad's only requirement for helping with the surprise was that it be a whole family event. In the end, the Disney magic works for everybody and makes for a great family trip.

Iris Messina - November 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, train
  • Resort: None
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Iris and her husband are Disney veterans, but this was their first trip to Disneyland Paris. It was just a day trip since they only had a week in Paris and (gasp!) apprently wanted to see other things as well. The weather wasn't perfect, but they were prepared and now they're going to have to experience Tokyo Disneyland.

Larry Wilmot - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: HC
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Elementary, Teen, Adult
  • Comments: Larry and his family make their third trip to Disneyland Paris. A French air traffic controller's strike throws some kinks in their plans, but as Larry says, no one is going to come between him and Disney.

Steve Zlick and Isaac Martin - July 2003

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: HNY
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Another epic trip report. Though this one was originally written and posted to our message boards for friends, it is still an entertaining read for everyboy. In a rare exception to our usual methods, this report includes many photographs that will make the page a heavy download, but it is worth the wait.

Rachel Van Houten - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: HNY
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Our second consecutive Paris trip report has Rachel, her sister, and their father spending three days at Disneyland Paris.

Lisa Cubbon - June 2003

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: DRP
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: This is our first Paris trip report since last September and it looks like we have a couple coming. Lisa and her husband took a week-long trip in June and they had a wonderful time, even if her husband did have to change his name.

James Malin - September 2002

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: HC
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: James visited Disneyland Paris mostly to see the new Walt Disney Studios. He's been to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Paris before, so the main draw was to see the newest Disney park.

Jody Grantham - May 2002

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: NBC
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Jody's conclusion was this, "I highly recommend the Disneyland Paris Resort to everyone. If you can get a good rate on airfare, a trip to Disneyland Paris Resort is very affordable, and worth a stay of about five days." This is a report of a personal side trip attached to a family visit to Holland. It's filled with information on those things that distinguish Disneyland Paris from Walt Disney World.

Edward and Lisa Perkis - March 2002

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: NBC
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie (DL Veterans, though)
  • Comments:  This is a fun trip report in part because of the back and forth dialog that Ed and Lisa provide.  It's an unusual style, but a fun one.  If you really want to know what it's like to visit DLP as an American, this report should be one of the first ones you read!

Frank Sauvestre - March 2002

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite (Frank lives within driving distance to DLP)
  • Accommodations: n/a
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: This report gives Frank's initial impressions of the new Walt Disney Studios park at Disneyland Paris.  It's presented in a summary style, and is a great summary of the new park.

Larry Wilmot - July 2001

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: HSF
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Primary School, Teen, Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: Larry provides a very entertaining -- and informative -- report on his family's visit to DLP is late July.  If you've never read a Wilmot report before, check this out... but beware, you'll be in stitches from the get go.

Dennis Greenblatt - March 2001

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: HNY
  • Accommodations: Suite
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent (Dennis' other trip reports to DLP are on MousePlanet, too!)
  • Comments:  In this report of his two-day visit, Dennis gives a great description of Disneyland Paris, along with some fun-to-read comparisons with Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. He also gives some great information on Hotel New York.

William - August 2000

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: RER A from Chatelet
  • Resort: Offsite (Youth Hostel at the Cite Universitaire, Paris)
  • Accommodations: Standard Room (whatever that is at a hostel)
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie (but Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort connoisseur)
  • Comments:  Billy spent a month studying in France, and couldn't pass up a day at DLP while he was in the neighborhood!  The comparisons between the Paris and U.S. parks that he paints are very interesting.  This isn't a long report, but it's fun to read.

Dennis Greenblatt - October 1999

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments:  Dennis revisited DLP in the Fall of 1999, after a similar trip in 1998.  Like his 1998 report, this one is fun to read because of the contrasts that he draws between the Paris and Florida parks.  There is definitely a difference in culture from the US parks versus DLP.  This report makes that very clear!

Paul Bittorf - February 1999

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane
  • Resort: Sequoia Lodge
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie (but freqent visitor to the US Disney parks)
  • Comments:  Paul and his wife, Bobbie, were able to go to Europe for almost a week, including a nice visit to Disneyland Paris.  This is a fantastic trip report for those US citizens that are planning a trip to DLP.  It also includes a wonderful description of the couple's stay in Paris before going to the park.

Christina Pitman - February 1999

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car (We are US military stationed in Germany)
  • Resort: SL, HNY
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie (but vets of WDW)
  • Comments: This is a fun-to-read report about a weekend trip to DLP.  Christina and husband Chris -- ironic, huh?  :) -- spent most of the weekend at DLP.  They stayed on property, so they were able to enjoy the park as well as the ambiance of the resort hotels, too.

Laura Chapman - January 1999

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Eurostar and TGV train
  • Resort: SL
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Rookie at DLP, Infrequent at WDW
  • Comments:   Laura's report is a wonderfully written description of a weekend foray to Disneyland Paris.  The Chapmans stayed at Sequoia Lodge during their trip.   Laura's descriptions of the couple's time in the park just whets the appetite to jump on a Concorde.

Dennis Greenblatt - September 1998

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Train
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments:  Dennis spent a day at Disneyland Paris during his vacation in France.  The report is a really interesting one because of Dennis' observations about the park versus the Magic Kingdom in Florida.

Edward Gentalen - August 1998

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: RER Train
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Frequent Disneyland Visitor, Rookie at Disneyland Paris
  • Comments: Edward visited DLP with his two children.  His wife decided to spend the day in Paris and passed on the Disney day.  Both parties had a great time (and it would be VERY difficult to choose which way to go if I was in Paris).

Peter Schouten - June 1998

  • Time of Year: Summer
  • Travel Method: Train (High Speed Train (Thalys) and RER-metro (fast subway) )
  • Resort: SFE
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments:  This is the first ever trip report posted on this site for Disneyland Paris.  I'm not sure when I'll be able to visit DLP myself, so I won't be adding a DLP trip planning guide anytime in the future, but the trip reports will be fun.  This was Peter's 9th visit to the park.

Peter Schouten - February 1998

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: DCR (Davy Crockett Ranch - on site)
  • Accommodations
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • DLP Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Rookie
  • Comments:  Peter's report of his February trip to DLP provides some insight about visiting the European park with a youngster.  Peter's friend brought his 10-year old son along for the trip.  This was a quick (two day) visit, but covers some details that are unique to Disneyland Paris.
