    I'm going to Disneyland Paris in June if that counts. I might end up going down to Flower and Garden if I can get a good cast deal.

    You're going to love it.

    What type of things do you like? Coasters? Also what type of food do you like? If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them for you:)

    Not too crazy about coasters. I might end up avoiding Space Mountain full out because of the loop. I'm interested in all the 25 stuff, Mickey and the Magician (possibly the only reason I'll end up going in the Studios), and the little side things that other parks don't have the the dragon and the Alice Labrynth.

    The Dragon is a must do! It's very cool. Pirates of the Caribbean in Paris is probably the best ride at the resort, but it might be closed when you go. Space Mountain is a very very good coaster, it's like a better version of The Rock n' Rollercoaster than Space Mountain, but if you don't want to it's not a deal breaker.

    Please go on Big Thunder though... while I prefer SM DLP's Big Thunder is absolutely stunning as well as the entire Frontierland. The Phantom Manor is also great. Disney World's HM is superior for the ride itself, but the backstory makes up for it as it covers all of Frontierland. If you haven't yet, take a look at it here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_Manor





    Overall Disneyland Parc Paris is just gorgeous. It's worth it between fast passes just to look around and see everything.


    At Walt Disney Studios the Tower of Terror is a clone of DCA's, and is the last place to have that version.
    Ratatouille is of course a must do.
    I haven't done the Mickey show there, but I've heard it's fantastic.
    While the park is absolutely horrifically ugly, the rides are very good. Crush's Coaster's spinning isn't bad at all, but instead adds to the curves, so you feel the G's. compare Crush with a non-looping RRC.
    What makes Walt Disney Studios worse is because DLP Parc is so pretty.


    I've been twice and the first time it was very crowded in August. The second time we went in May and the highest wait for Space Mountain was 15 minutes. Two completely different experiences no doubt.

    The restaraunts I would recommend are Blue Lagoon (like Blue Bayou), Inventions (Buffet), and Bistro Chez Remy over at the Studios.
    Videopolis is a nice place for a quick service lunch.

    Overall coasters in DLP are more thrilling than WDW.

    I'll only have two days at most so I'll really only have time for the best of the best. Noted on Ratatouille. I've seen a video of the Mickey show. Anything that uses the French version of Beauty and the Beast is a plus in my book, it's gorgeous. I'm genuinely curious about the two castle shows coming. The parade could go either way for me because the music and some of the IP choices are ridiculous but I appreciate the aesthetic. Illuminations is just Ignite the Dream on Paris's castle but I enjoy Ignite the Dream.

    When Disney Dreams! was still around I loved it. If Illumination is anything like that you should definitely see it. Be warned though... the crowds are massive exiting the park in the Summer -- worse than what I have experienced at the Magic Kingdom after Wishes.

    Since you are going for two days you might want to stay from opening until closing to maximize and be able to appreciate the lovely resort.

    Probably do one or none of the restaraunts I mentioned since you you my have two days.


    These are what I would consider must-do's over at DLP, but if here's any you don't want to do then that's okay! The ones in bold are the ones you should really try to do though.

    Disneyland Parc Paris
    Pirates of the Caribbean (best iteration of the original ride).
    Big Thunder Mountain (also the best version)
    Phantom Manor (a really cool take on the classic with an enchanting backstory, and a breathtaking score).
    Peter Pan, Pinocchio, and Snow White. (classics you cannot go wrong with).
    Space Mountain
    Buzz (free movement blasters)
    It's a Small World (if you don't have a lot of time no big deal -- just enjoy the beauty from the outside:D).


    Walt Disney Studios
    Ratatouille (Don't miss!)
    Studio Backlot Tour (very nostalgic:p)
    Crush's Coaster (one of the best themed spinning coasters on Earth).
    Cinemagique (it's really good, but takes a while so you might want to skip it)
    Tot & RRC (probably a skip since they're both in Orlando in similar iterations).

    Since you're pressed on time, skip at least half of these at Walt Disney Studios, and spend some time enjoying the beautiful Disneyland Parc Paris.

    Also, be sure to take advantage of the Main Street arcades. You can walk all the way from The Disneyland Hotel up Main Street to Frontierland through Adventureland all the way to Fantasyland where Pirates & Peter Pan are.

    Btw popcorn is like Kettlecorn there.

    We got on the third limo of the day, headed over to ToT for a ten minute wait, and are now in the queue for TSMM, all before 10:00! :D:D

    That's the best feeling -- getting all 3 of those done in a few hours!
