    Re: Strikes, Indian Bankers and Trash Cans: a Week at Disneyland Paris

    I would have pulled the cigarette right out of the guys mouth. Very rude of him.

    I loved the pictures of the trashcans!

    Re: Strikes, Indian Bankers and Trash Cans: a Week at Disneyland Paris

    Actually, now that you mention it, I am the person that leaned on the bin to throw my sandwich into the grounds of Phantom Manor. I must apologise for this, I simply wanted to dispose of my sandwich and perhaps could have found a better place and time to do so. In my defence, the sandwich was almost immediately devoured by a colony of hungry rats who I assumed were a tie-in with that Pixar movie - Cars.



    BTW Puss, surely the question on everyone's lips is - did you witness any public urinating?

    Re: Strikes, Indian Bankers and Trash Cans: a Week at Disneyland Paris

    great trip report, i recently came back from a first trip and found the DLP crowds to be of the "six flags" variety.

    BTW Puss, surely the question on everyone's lips is - did you witness any public urinating?
    believe it or not, i've seen public urination at the original disneyland. some trashy family allowed their son to pee in a corner of the indiana jones adventure queue's rotunda room.

    Thanks for the report - I really enjoyed it. I'm afraid I would have said a little more to the cigarette guy. But, good for you speaking up to the indian banker guy! Some people don't realize that they're not better than everybody else, they're just making a fool of themself.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Ah yes, laugh! Laugh at my little one-in-a-million. Just wait until the smoker too tracks me down and my posting mysteriously stops.

    Hmmmm. I wonder how David Sedaris handles these things?

    And the urinating... Actually, now that you mention it, Adventure Isle smelled of chlorine and nothing more. Excellent progress there.

    Well, with all due respect, I don't think it's that bad yet... Disneyland Paris is still mostly visited by families. Families with occasionally questionable views on waste management and second hand smoke, but it's not nearly as bad as your average Six Flags, where you stand about a 30% chance of running into a man exposing himself to a security camera.

    You're probably right, but to be honest I kind of felt for him. He was obviously shocked to be reprimanded at all, and he was just trying to prove his masculinity to the other apes in his party. Come to think of it, that was a bit of a Six Flags moment...

    I just hope the smoker and the cheery taxi man don't show up...
    Last time I drive you to Disneyland Paris for 15 euros!

    P.S. Nice shoes.

    Thanks for the report!

    About the rude guests, I just heard a piece on NPR about Expedia France doing a survey about the worst tourists. Here's an article about it: http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/20...worst-tourists

    Re: Strikes, Indian Bankers and Trash Cans: a Week at Disneyland Paris

    Thanks, enjoyed the report. Certainly the trashiest one I've ever read

    BTW I was one of those Indian bankers at DLP that day. But my mission there was top secret so I can't tell you much about it. I will say that I gave a confidential document to Aladdin247 which self-destructed after he read it...we can't have all those non-shareholder-types reading such things, after all!

    NPR listeners, meanwhile, must make fabulous tourists. All excited to finally put that degree in linguistics to good use, trying hard not to be recognized as Americans, recycling all their trash... But I have a feeling you won't find too many of them at Disney.

    Hey, I do own shares. With any luck I'll be able to sell them one day and buy a latte.

    I was there and May and didn't think people behaved all that badly. The one thing I did see was two idiot guys in their late teens throw one of those "slippery when wet" cones off a bridge on Adventure Isle onto a path below and run off laughing at how amazingly daring and witty they were. If someone happened to walk around the corner and was hit it could have caused a very serious injury judging by the force with which it hit the ground.

    That would have been ironic, wouldn't it. Death by a "caution, wet floor" cone.

    Re: Strikes, Indian Bankers and Trash Cans: a Week at Disneyland Paris

    This is a very nice trip report from you Pussnboots. Great photos, nice shoes, and commentary that is spot on. I agree with most of your comments and observations. I am also glad to see (from your pictures) that the main soundstage entrance into WDSP is being renovated and the huge Cars billboard on the building has been removed at last!!

    Great report. Thanks.

    Yes, I guess it would. The last thing you'd see flying toward your head at high speed would be "CAUTION" in bright red letters.
