Really cool pics Ian. I like the Storybookland area there, much more detailed.
Thanks for the report.

i was at Disneyland Resort Paris this past June, and the Old Mill Ferris Wheel attraction was closed. what's the story there?
It seems that this attraction has been closed for several years now. I have not seen it in operation the last four or five years. I think it has everything to do with budget cuts, considering the poor financial situation Eurodisney SCA (the operator of the park) is in. It is however still listed as a functional attraction, so they can reopen it on busy days I guess. I hear since the opening of the Buzz Lightyear attraction attendance has gone up and lately the park seems to be packed, so there may be hope of seeing this Mill turning again.
The Old Mill has not been used for a while, in fact at Christmas they fill the buckets with presents to make it look festive at least. It was never a great attraction and had a really low capacity. It does at least look nice.
When I lived in Paris for a year and visited the park nearly ever week I think I saw it working once, but I don't have photos of it in operation.
As to the other two attractions, they two are seasonal and are closed in the quieter winter season. Basically they just fence off the access under the railroad, which is a pity.
