I have been throwing an idea round to take Carol and Christopher to Eurodisney in June this year. Big suprise but Carol has an inkling as I have the brochure sent to me from France a couple of days ago.
Has anyone ever been for a couple of days to this one or any of the disneyland places. Are they ok for a four and a half year old, a 31 year old wife and me (the biggest child of them all).
It would mean for me driving for about 12 hours inc a ferry trip but so be it - however, is it all that its meant to be? I want it to be magical for them both.

I can't obviously comment on Euro Disney, but since I live an hour from Disney World in Florida, I can say that it would be a fun time for the family. Some of the rides may be too much for a 4 year old, but there is plenty that is geared toward younger kids. Funny you should use the term 'magical', because that's exactly the feeling they go for.

Let me add a P.S. by saying that I just went to their website, and the Disneyland part is very similar to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. I think the family will love it, especially if you haven't been anyplace like it before.

I went to Disneyland in California once when I was growing up and it was a fantastic esperience! My younger sister was 5 or 6 years old at that time and it was very suitable for someone her age. Besides the rides, there were alot of other attractions that were fun for the whole family. The only negative thing about it was that we were only there for 1 day and Disneyland was so huge we weren't able to see it all.

I think you should go ahead with your plans to take your family to Eurodisney, if it's anything like the original Disneyland, it will really be worth it!!!!!

Kev that place would be a blast for you to take your family to if it is anything like DisneyWorld in FL. Ken and I went there for our Honeymoon Oct 2002. I can tell you that was the most fun I have ever had, I don't know if it was because I was a newlywed or the fact that Disney is AWESOME or both

I know your whole family will love it. Have a great time if you do go

I know a number of folks that have planned full vacations around Disneyworld in Florida. A day or 2 at Disneyworld, another couple of days at Epcot (not sure if Eurodisney has something comparable), then a 3 day Disney cruise. I think that 4-1/2 years old is a magical age to go, as well as 31 or 40.

I've been to Disneyworld in Florida shortly after their opening in 1976 and Disneyland in California in 1980. Both were fun trips. I would go back but my husband swears he will never go.

I worked at Disneyland throughout high school- it was and is always a magical place to be. Kids love it and to experience it through the eyes of a child for the first time would be magical. I worked behind the scenes, near it's a small world, but my id badge got me in free all the time, and I never tired of it.

I've been to both Disneyland and Disney world. I have to say that Disney World has a lot more to offer (in my opinion) but they are both awesome! Of course they are great to take the family to! That is what they're for!

Kev, the thing about Disney is that it's good for all ages. Occasionally there will be rides that you won't want to take your child on (my SS didn't like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland--where we go since we live only an hour away), but most will be okay. I have memories of the Pirates of the Caribbean from when I was 4 and we were sitting behind some teenagers who started screaming when a skull started speaking and I tapped them both and said, "It's NOT scary!" I'll bet those Highschoolers were really thrilled to have a 4 year old say that to them. I also had good memories of the Haunted Mansion, but I thought they were a dream until I was 21 and went back to Disney and went on that ride and freaked out when I realized the dream was real! Everyone on the ride with us was laughing at me and so was I, so Disney at 4 is not a bad idea at all. I love the memories I have.

I've taken my nephews to Disney as young as 2 and they enjoyed it! Some rides are too much (my 2 yr old nephew hid his face thru the Haunted Mansion) but most are fine.

One hint that works in ALL parks. When you go in the front gate, go to the LEFT. Most people enter the part and go right. If you work the park from left to right, you'll hit less lines.
