The Parisian maps combine to bring you Le Plan de Parcs. Inside, the top has the WDS and the bottom has DLP. On the other side of the paper has the entertainment schedules. (The news: this saves paper!!)

The Disneyland Resort used to do this, if I'm not mistaken.
That is correct. I much prefer separate park maps... and if possible, the same quality and color caliber of the ones in TDL and USJ guideBOOKS...but that would be too much to ask from the american, HK and Paris parks...
BOOOOOO! To be honest, I think, judging by DLRPMagic's pictures that this is not as good or handy as the two smaller ones. Maybe, from a business angle, the pros outweight the cons or whatever but, I dunno, it just clumps them together untidily somehow. WDS is just starting to stand on its own two feet (well I always liked it but it wasn't Disneyland park) and this kind of implies it can't...which I think it can! If it was me, I'd have each park having a very individual themed map, but I guess that aint good business.
DLRPMagic says this is just for marketing, to get people rollin' the turnstiles at WDS. The new maps show new tourists what's inside. (Because people already know what's in DLP, it's basically like DL.)
Let me just say this. If I am paying money to go to a theme park halfway across the world, I expect separate maps for each park. It's just cheap otherwise. They're not doing it to be environmentally friendly. They're doing it to cut costs, and when it's my money that's paying for it, I'm not pleased. I was very happy Disneyland knocked off this cheap business. Hopefuly DLP will too.
(Because people already know what's in DLP, it's basically like DL.)
I wouldn't quite say that, firstly because it's not '' it's interesting, it's different to DL, and most visitors probably won't know what DL is like, at least in detail, at all. This bunching together, in my opinion is ugly and horrid, it doesn't really matter, but it aint nice.
It does make sense. Almost everyone that goes on a daytrip to Disneyland Paris just visits the Disneyland Parc. Many people wont know much about the WDS park and the new rides. This is an easy way of marketing it to them.
I don't think it has anything to do with saving money.
Maybe I'm just being cynical then, but I don't think they'd do it for that purpose alone as there are other, better ways to do it probably. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to make/save money, it's sensible, it's just not particularly good. And thank you for your welcome, again, Mr.Detroit.
