Disneyland Paris - your thoughts investigated

Disneyland Paris: I'm going there this weekend - anyone like me to check out anything specific?

I know that there have been previous discussions about various negative issues at Disneyland Paris, like smoking in queues, rude Cast-members. I'm going for a Hen Party this Friday (2nd March)... Would anyone like me to look out for anything specific? Happy to confirm or deny anything you've been wondering about this faraway and hotly contested Disney satellite...

Post a trip report! Have a great time! Could you let us know how well the resort's upkeep is?(is there too much run down looking places, non-working effects, etc...).

As its a hen party do I need to request a bit of info on how many cocktails are available??? :-))

Have a great time, a trip report would be great. If you get a chance - what sort of parade are they having at the moment?
(Got some free tickets as a Sky customer and hoping to use them if its worth the travel costs)

Time for me to give away my ignorance:

Hen Party?

Mike, I believe you might know it as a Bachelorette party?

Have a great time Lauren, would love to see a trippie. I don't often read ones at DLRP.

Are you going to Studios as well? Could you see if the queues for Crush's Coaster are still constantly 90-120 minutes? Thanks.

I would go for a trip report. I have been there and while I loved it, the cast members were either really good or really terrible.

Here are some gems to check out:

Alice's Curious Labyrinth
Crush Coaster
Phantom Manor

Brilliant guys, thanks for all your suggestions. I will defo post a trip report when I get back next week.

And yes we are going to the Studios - which I'm very excited about, as the last time I went they only had Rock n Roller and Motors, Lights, Action (couldn't believe they opened the park with only two main attractions ready).

I wil be sure to check out the Alice maze - was wondering if that was worth it. Crush’s Coaster is on the list, and will note wait times. Phantom Manor – always. But how does this differ from WDW?

Other things – upkeep and parade… ooh, getting very excited now. 2 more big sleeps.

And sorry Mike – in Blighty the bride and groom to be are known as the Hen and Stag respectively. (don’t ask me why!)

As for the cocktails…apparently we’re having champagne in the airport before we fly, so if that sets the scene, cocktails will definitely be flowing!

Okay, deal. I won't ask. But a female chicken and a male deer? That'll be some wedding night!!!!!!!!

The Crush coaster is a must as well.

I know the Alice's Curious Labyrinth sounds a bit odd, but it is something that I really feel represents DLP vs its American Cousins....the environmentals! This maze is very well themed and actually a bit more challenging than you expect. It also allows you to literally walk through Wonderland from Alice's eye.

All of DLP is quite spectacular. Their Thunder Mountain is very large too! The best I have been on!

In the Studios, at the side of Toy Story Playland, could check if the construction of the Ratatouile ride has already begun?
