    Getting to the park:Other points: TR6 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    Doesn't look to crowded, does it? Imagine Disneyland in CA 10 minutes before rope drop. Parisian's sleep in.
    TR7 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    Fresh flowers galore
    TR8 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    Disney in the details, per usual
    TR9 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    It seemed like the horses here looked more healthy than the state-side parks. Look at the cool park logo on the horses blind. Again, the detail Disney puts in to things may make projects take a little longer, but it's worth it.

    Finally found old glory...are at least a variation of.

    Just something about people in Europe - they are cool and they get it.

    Your attention please...

    Sorry, one more of this dude. I guess I like horses now.

    A bigger problem than potential ghosts are these bad shingles. There is a good chance there could be moisture and mold issues inside.

    Such a fine job by imagineering of creating something that looks old and decrepit, but yet you are easily able to imagine it during a different time. They certainly have succeeded at the art of guiding your thought process.

    Control, this is sub. I look like a ride, and you would think I was part of something bigger. But no, I just sit here and blow bubbles. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

    Taking a final bow. You will be missed.

    Greatly apologize for the blur - just wanted y'allz to see what the loading area looked like for Crush

    Quick drop and a short stop.

    Of course the Tower wins the prize for best decor. Year after year.

    Now, boy, flying is not merely some crude, mechanical process. It is a delicate art. Purely aesthetic. Poetry of motion. And the best way to learn it is to do it.

    If I haven't already mentioned in a million times, the flowers in Paris during the spring will knock your socks off.
    TR61 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    Fancy an ice cream? Well then fancy either waiting in a line for an hour, or walking up to the door only to find the place is only opened 2 hours out of the day.

    So many pics, so little time

    Bad photo, but just wanted to mention again how great of a job they did with this ride.
    TR74 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    There seems to be a slowing moving train up ahead.
    TR75 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    If trains had an attitude, this one's would be arrogant.
    TR76 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
    Boom! This is what I was talking about. This path actually led out of the park, and then back in. There were no gates, no fences, no railings. At one point I saw a guy setting up a full-on picnic with cheese board included!

      Great trip report! I have never seen this much detail of the park.

      That being said, this place is dirtier than DLR. The EVE statue is in sad condition.

        This was over by the labyrinth - no, not the one with David Bowie.

        A fairly large balloon coming out of one of the better dining areas. One thing that was weird, they had a lot of outdoor tables to snack at, but very few chairs. The tables to chairs ratio was in disarray.

        Welcome to the little mining town of Rainbow Ridge - seriously, it was a miniature version of DCA Cars Land.

        Had Luigi and Guido been on the trip with us, they would have fallen over multiple times due to the Ferrari and other supercar sightings. Especially in Bruxelles.
        TR85 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Long line for this puppy - I think the main issue was that half of the ride vehicle was having seat belt issues, so capacity was down a touch.
        TR86 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        But, once it got going it was a fun time for all.
        TR87 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Welp, those movies came out a while ago, so...
        TR88 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        The English language does have the right words to describe just how impeccably perfect the decor in the hotel is. So I won't try.
        TR89 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Kindly step all the way, and make room for everyone...

        It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life hums along like a song. But the man worth while is the man who can smile when everything goes dead wrong.
        TR91 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        A little blurry, but this is the inside of the Aerosmith queue. Such a cool effect - still trying to figure out how they did it!
        TR92 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Like I said, they are stuck way back in the late 90's over here.
        TR93 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Not many EuroDisneyland references in the park - this was cool, wish they were for sale.
        TR94 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        I was actually flat on my back when I took this. The CM let me go up and do it while everyone was behind the ropes waiting for the fireworks. Like I said, people are cool here. And even though everyone saw me do this, nobody else pushed to have their turn. People aren't so concerned that they are missing things - they are into what they are doing and focused on moments. Does that make sense?
        TR95 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Oooooh, A pirates life is a wonderful life, they never bury your bones...
        TR96 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        This might be my favorite of all the park photos. So euro.
        TR97 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Snow White was very cool and sinister from the outside. Now, if only the evil queen wasn't wearing Bermuda shorts and flip-flops, the theme might have carried along a little better.
        TR98 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Can't have too many of these
        TR99 by kyledaneanderson, on Flickr
        Such an impressive castle. Makes our Anaheim version look like a trailer park.

          I think it's worth mentioning that the Crush Go-Coaster loading area would not be possible in the U.S.

          In the U.S., guests have trouble enough just getting into and out of the bateau on IaSW or PotC. In Crush, you're stepping off a stationary deck way down into the turtle shells while they're moving, and half the seats face backward. And there's less runway both for exiting and entering passengers than the loading ramp for HM's doombuggies.

          In fact, one of the reasons DLP is so beautiful is because there are no ADA regulations in France, so paths can be narrow and hilly, with many, many steps everywhere throughout.

              The castle in Paris is the best Disney building ever. It really makes the other ones look cheap.
