    I've lost way over 50% of my Euro Disney investments. It's about time I made some money off them!

    only been there once, doubt i'll ever go back...

    the mouse and entourage can't make up for the very french aspects of the park (line-jumping is a national sport)...

    So if it's trading at $5 now...would it be a good idea to pick up some of that stock now?

    we were so busy trying to create a human blockade so they wouldn't be able to get around us, we didn't even notice the smoke...

    reminds me when we walked into a restaurant in paris and asked if there was a no-smoking section..
    the maitre D' laughed..
    then said, yes there is a no smoking section..
    then laughed again and pointed in the direction of what we understood to be the 'no-smoking' section that was thick with smoke, with at least one smoker at every table...

    perhaps they mean no-smoking in the sense that it's so full of smoke, you don't have to light up a cigarette and smoke, you can just breathe in the air...

    My family is really hoping that this goes through. We are Annual Passport holders at DLP, because it is the only Disney option for us while we are in Europe.

    There are a lot of great things about DLP, but almost as many things that need to be sprinkled with some real Disney magic! Tops on my list are the resorts, and the attitudes of the French cast members!
