    I've read some OK reviews. It seems like a nice setup just outside Paris but I think they should have built it further South. My wife and I aren't Disney fans but we are going there in early February. Almost by accident so I'll try to report back.

    Too funny. Yes I know. I've heard Paris is great. Seriously we are spending some time in France doing Paris and Normandy areas mostly. We just happen to get an almost free hotel night right in the Eurodisney area so we have 1 day before we fly home. It seems like the plastic version of Paris but I'll let you know. I'll try to post a follow up on this thread when I get back.

    As Disney fans (not addicts) we have one day planned at EuroDisney as part of an upcoming 5-day trip. Not expecting to be blown away but imagine it will be a good break from sightseeing for our kids.

    It was cold, even for Paris and even for February but we really enjoyed it. If you are expecting DisneyWorld then adjust your sights a little lower, more like Disneyland California. If you like Disney you will like it. I enjoyed it even with the cold weather. We stayed at the Relais Spa hotel in Val D'Europe area (next train stop away, like 2 euro and 3 minutes) and it was a very easy, very short commute and we really enjoyed the area. The shopping at Val D'Europe was very good as well. I would suggest all but the hardcore Disney folks to stay at Val D'Europe. We did Disney on our last full day in Paris and then took the high speed train (10 minute) to CDG the next morning.

    If your a Disney fan you will love it and figure 2 days is enough.
    If you sorta like Disney and don't have little kids you'll like it and figure 1 day is enough.
    If you hate Disney but your spouse likes Disney then it will be torture but you'll do it anyway for them and 1 day is more than enough and You'll think Captain EO is lame.
    If you both hate Disney just stay in Paris.

    My ranking would be this for Disney properties:
    1. Disney World
    2. Disneyland USA
    3. Disneyland Paris
    4. Disney Tokyo
    5. Disney Hong Kong
    6. Any other overpriced Disney random resort properties

    (disclaimer: I haven't been to Disney Tokyo or the Disney resort in Hawaii but I can imagine the cost).
