  • Reasons why: DLP edition

    In light of Kevin Yee's recent episode of optimism regarding Walt Disney World, I thought I'd start this post. You see, despite the fact that no one is over the moon with Space Mountain anymore, Honey, I Shrunk the Audience has truly shrunk its audience, Buzz is a buzz kill, Phantom Manor actually needs dusting, the merchandise has you marching out the door, the Swiss Family Treehouse's is an increasingly deserted island, the Walt Disney Studios is not so much an Affair to Remember as the Big Sleep, Disney Village has been mistaken for an Eastern European outlet mall, the Cast Members are surly, the guests are pushy and the coffee tastes like sewage, or Nescafe... Where was I going with this? Ah yes, Disneyland Paris is still worthwhile. Let's face it, despite all of this, we're all still happy to put up with that coffee just to catch a glimpse of that castle. There are hundreds of reasons why we keep returning. There must be, or we're all just mad.

    Let us count the ways.

        Well, that's been a while. Time to remind ourselves once more, haha. And it seemed topical. (Okay, I had forgotten about that thread and should have bumped it instead of creating a new one. Bygones.)

        And my prime reason has to be Main Street too. It's the best version by a landslide. I mean it's really, really far ahead of the others, even though most people (including many a theme park enthusiast) never take the time to realize quite how much. Same with the castle.

          Well I hear WDW's main street's left side is all one giant shore. If this is true then I can proudly say that DLP's offers a huge variety of shops and eateries and allsorts, it's quite simply utterly wonderful

            Yes, they essentially sacrificed the west side of Center Street for more retail space. But it's more than that. DLP's Main Street was just so... Thoroughly designed. it's just marvelous.

                I liked Peter Pan's Flight with all the "glittery" stuff on the sip at the end scene.

                  In my experience, it's usually the cleanest part of the park. ) Disneyland Paris has my favorite version of Main Street definitely. The two arcades, the billboards with advertisements, the bricked road, the Disneyland Hotel in the background all combine to make it a wonderful and immersive experience (not that the other lands don't succeed at this).

                    Indeed it certainly looks the best facing away from the castle if nothing else! The DL hotel looks like part of the scenery!
