    Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    Discussions on another thread have lead me to wonder how people deal with Europe's best theme park being right next to one of Europe's best cities.... so which of the above are you?

    Re: Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    When I go in a few weeks, I will be staying on-site and I will not have the chance to see Paris. If I had my perfect way, I would have the time to go into Paris and also Disneyland, but the way things worked out was that I had to choose between Paris and Disneyland. Now most people I know, would choose Paris, but being the Disney freak I am, I chose Disneyland.

    Besides the Effiel Tower, there really isn't anything in Paris that I am wanting to see. I realize that isn't typical either, but oh well. You only live once and you have to do what you want while you are on this earth.

    Oh Sara, we can't blame you for not wanting something you don't know.

    But you're missing a chance to see something really beautiful. And I love Disneyland parks but it's P A R I S baby, not the knock off on Las Vegas Blvd but the real thing.

    Re: Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    I 'did' Paris for my honeymoon in 1996 (including a single day at DLP). We loved it but have had no compulsion to return to the city since.

    My opinion is that if you are staying on the resort, you really should take full advantage of the resort's facilities for the full length of your stay considering the not inconsiderable prices you are paying to be there.

    Re: Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    I've 'done' Paris, and I must say it doesn't strike me as one of the greatest European cities I've visited which is a fair few, perhaps it was overhyped (I very much think so) so I tend to simply visit the parks, though I do get a sense of guilt with that lol. I think I would rather visit London as a city and have a Disney holiday.

    I'm with the others. I went to Paris for a day on a birthday in my teens and that was enough for me. As beautiful the city may be, I don't feel the need to return for a longer stay. I'd rather spend that time in DLP.

    Re: Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    I always as a rule stay on site. I have been tempted to see more of Paris but usually end up having so much fun at the Resort that I in the end I don't venture out of Disney. Maybe one day perhaps.

    I share that opinion really.

    I've been to Paris on two or three occasions for full-blown holidays anyway,
    so don't see the need.

    Re: Disneyland Paris without the Paris?

    Even better than Paris, there are so many amazing sites in the area - Chantilly, Provins, Arras, Pierrefonds, Vaux le Vicomte, Barbizon, Riems, Meaux and so much more.

    Paris is overrated (though the museums and graveyards are fantastic). But DLP isn't what it once was either.

    We will be there for 7 days, and I am trying to convince my family to spend as little time with the mouse as possible (a few hours a day then off somewhere else).

    It's hard to tell who's British, you all have such great command of the American language.

    Haven't had the pleasure of visiting DL Paris. But, I would definitely visit Paris as well as the park upon a first visit.
