Because I've been so busy lately, I still haven't gotten around to Part 2 of my trip report, which shows DLP Park in all it's glory. But, due to the intense amount of emails I got regarding the whole rat thing at Blue Lagoon restaraunt, I've decided to post a preview including not only the rat thing, but a photo essay detailing Main Street USA.
From the site: Ah yes, the Blue Lagoon. Supposedly the Ďbestí restaurant in Disneyland Paris. Certainly, the theming is beautiful, and how itís set up is much more exciting then the other Lagoon restaurants in the other Disney parks. Disneyland Parisí version of Pirates of the Caribbean is a radically different Ďre-imaginationí of the ride and contributes immensely to this wonderfully themed eatery. However, they seem to have a bit of a rat problem. Real rats. Not Audio Animatronics. And not just a couple. A whole bunch. Now, to be fair, every single version of Pirates I have been on (except, amazingly, Tokyoís) I have at one point or another seen a real rat or two scurry about inside the attraction. The water, humidity, and darkness of the rides are a natural place for rats to call their home. However, I have never, EVER seen a rat in either of the other Lagoon restaurants. Not so in Paris. Actually, to be completely honest, Iíve never seen such an unbelievable quantity of rats in ANY restaurant (and Iíve been to third world countries) But the photos kind of speak for themselves. Despite literally TABLES of guests jumped to their feet in terror as these little guys scurried past their feet, in their brazen (and fearless) search for food. Personally, I think rodents are kind of cute. They certainly didnít scare me, but it didnít make my meal feel too appetizing primarily because, not only did the CMs not do anything about it, but actually laughed at the guestís reactions. No apologies, and no refund on the meal that I really didnít care to eat. Yet STILL, despite the weirdness, Iíd recommend at least walking through the restaurant to see how cool it is. Just uh, Iím not too sure Iíd eat that food.
