When comparing prices, bear in mind that Disney hotel prices include park tickets, breakfast (and air conditioning!), and the opportunity to do most of the rides in Fantasyland one hour before everyone else. There are shuttles from the hotels, if you don't fancy the 10 or 20 minute walk.

I also don't recall any streetmosphere characters either in Studios, but then they would probably have to do their act in several languages.

When I was there last, Crush's Coaster also had a 2 hour wait from park opening.

I understand that when building Main Street, the designers wanted to go for a 1920's street, instead of a 1900's street, but the bosses said "no" - and later regretted it.

My condolences go out to Dawn, and I hope Len is having a good time sleeping in the back of the car.

This may be becoming an Inside Joke.

Matt said it to Len as a comment to his TouringPlans blog, and said it to Fred Hazelton (superfan99) to say to his girlfriend in Episode 537 (at 36'30").

I am so glad that I did not have a mouth full of drink when I listened to Episode 537!
Does DLP onsite have a bus system?

Hey Len, awesome show. Was just curious, you said how even Disney owned hotels had a 12-18 min walk. Do the not have a bus service for their guests, like WDW does?
Park Cleanliness

Len...you didn't comment on park cleanliness, so maybe it wasn't an issue for you, but I have heard from other Americans who've been to all of the US parks that the degree of cleanliness of the Paris parks was not up to what they were used to.

Oh...I hope Dawn has at least let you back into the house. My condolences Dawn. LOL

Great trip review! It was fun listening to your thoughts on Disneyland Paris.

I seem to remember thinking the wild west scene was a bit............different? It definitely took me by surprise.

What time is the 4 o'clock parade?

I wish that I could share the colorful text messages that I got from Dawn during the 8 hour layover.
