This is my 3rd attempt to give a trip report but keep getting it wrong re filing, so now will just give conclusions. travel- car and Seacat. Journey fine, but too long. Wish we'd taken the Eurostar! NBC- on place which would accomodate 5 of us. Lovely hotel, but too big for the facilities on offer - couldn't cope with all the people staying there. Tahnk God for breakfast via room service. Too far away for us - it's the Disneyland hotel next time ! Meals at hotel fine, but v expensive and needed to be booked well in advance. Parks - great but exhausting. Certianly paid to be there at 9am, but only Fantasyland open then - the rest of the park opened at 10 ! Don't bother with the Critter Corall - waste of time. Not all restaurants open. Didn't queue too much - worst was 40 mins for Dumbo. Studios - get there at opening time. Armageddon ride disappointing. Val D'Europe shopping. Lovely, but alas I had the family with me which restricted serious spending. Use Porte Danube section of covered carpark to be nearest to Auchan. All in all, use SV's fab book to plan in advance to get the most out of the trip - after all, it costs a fortune, so you want the most out of it ! ENJOY !!!!
