  1. I was lucky enough to visit Disneyland Paris in the summer of 2000. California Adventure had not yet opened so it was the second “Disney Park” I ever attended after years of regular visits to the original Disneyland. It was a very beautiful park and still relatively new- I remember buying my ticket from one of the train stations in central Paris…they were offering a significant discount for afternoon admission and since the sun would go down like at 10:00 PM in Paris you still got a lot of daylight hours. Some impressions-it was a lot bigger than Anaheim(but having now been to Walt Disney World) not nearly as overwhelming as the Magic Kingdom. I remember feeling like landscaping tricked you into perceiving there was more to do than there really was. The castle is very picturesque and while nearly as tall as Cinderella’s somehow doesn’t feel as large(but obviously way larger than in California). The Main Street Arcades that allow you to bypass the outdoor street are very charming and well detailed…in fact everything was fantastically detailed. And Space Mountain is as good as its reputation…just spectacular. But my favorite attraction was the Nautilus, my Father remembers touring the original sets in Tomorrowland back in the 50’s & 60’s and would often regale me with that and so it was fun to live that experience for myself in a slightly different way. They had the Main Street Electrical Parade which was a treat as at that time it “was gone forever” from Anaheim…and I remember a fireworks show that flanked the castle but didn’t leave the ground very much…almost like giant sparklers. I hope to go back someday.
