We've finally booked and we're off out there on 23 September for four nights!! We'll be staying in the Newport Bay Club (looks almost the same as the Yacht and Beach, it even has its own lighthouse!) on the Admirals Floor with a lake view (their version of concierge). I can't wait! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Congrats! Wow - would love to hear a trip report about it when you are back! I have the Travel Guide for DLP and there are some pretty neat looking resorts over there - enjoy the stay (how many days, hours, minutes 'til?? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] )
Elaine thank you for both links - the unoffical DLP site has tons of good info and of course who could ever plan a trip without hitting the official DLP site. Both should come in handy in planning a trip to DLP!
Thanks for both links Elaine. Neither website has much on about restaurants and meals, which is a great shame. Considering the French are so keen on their food, you'd think there'd be more information! Despite that, I'm gradually starting to get a target list together of places to try!

We were in DLP last year. It was pretty fun, as there were almost NO lines! The longest line was 10 min. for Space Mountain (you get shot out of a canon!) 5 min. for Thunder Mountain.
We had fun, but we stayed for too long. We were there for 3 days, and were bored afer the first. It is a small amusement park. Most of the food and other stuff is based on the European stereotype of American culture.
Their MGM Studios had just opened and was great fun. Rock and Roller coaster: wait in line for 5-10 minutes, ride, run around, repeat, until about ready to be ill.
We were in the DLP Hotel (the ground floor is the gates to the park)
The French: not necessarily unfiendly, but a definite change (and not a good one) from WDW staff. It is a different culture. The customer is not always right. But, that said, they are friendly enough if you make an effort.
The workers and almost all of the guests speak English, but it is nice to know how to say Hi, Where is the restroom, and thank you.
Don't rush throught the hedge maze, it is terrific! and the dragon was cute.
Have fun, and do not hestitateto e-mail if you have any questions.
