Just thought I would share my views on DLP after a trip in December. We had a great time and the Magic Kingdom is a beautiful park but for some reason it just didn't scream Disney at me. I have been trying to put my finger on what was missing and honestly I just can't, all I can say is it seems to be missing the magic that the US parks have. I know that we toured off season and in Winter but I was very disappointed by how much was closed. We tour off season at WDW and apart from one or two rides down for rehab everything is open. In DLP at times it felt like a ghost town, particularly the Frontier & Adventureland areas. The other thing I found really disappointing was touring at night time. There simply were no lights on and quite frankly it was downright dangerous as in places you literally couldn't see where you were going. I love touring the parks at WDW at night and I love going on the rides late but at DLP everything shuts down, you can't even get dinner in the park as all the restaurants close before the fireworks, which in Winter is early. As for the night time show on the castle again I was disappointed. Before we left so many people raved about it, yes it was lovely but it just didn't bring a tear to my eye as the shows in the USA. I really don't like writing negative reviews but here it is. Lets hope that with the Disney Company takeover things will change at DLP and I can't wait to visit WDW in 2 years time.
I also totally agree. I wonder if the cast members are trained differently. I also agree with the closed rides. We went one Sunday and both Space Mountain and Big thunder were closed and tha parks just couldn't cope. Another part of the problem is that annual passes are very cheap so a lot of locals have them and use them all the time so it is never not busy.
