When I was in Paris, Disneyland Paris (I prefer to say Euro Disney) was on the top of my bucket list! We got the metro tickets, took the metro & at “Auber” station we changed to another metro line called “RER, A”, which reaches
Euro Disney. On the way, I kept imagining all the Fun & Excitement waiting for a Hobbit-Spirited one like me in that Big Fat Amusement Park!
Suddenly, 2 inspectors interrupted my daydreaming, asking to check our metro tickets. We showed them the
tickets but they replied those were tickets for ordinary metro trips “inside Paris”, while the RER needed different tickets & thus, we should pay a penalty of 33 Euros for not buying the RER tickets We told them the RER entrance was directly connected to the ordinary metro stations with no signs at all mentioning different tickets. The inspectors insisted we should pay…No
excuse! We paid 33 Euros… with a feeling of heartache!
Learnt Lesson 1: “RER”
to Euro Disney has its own tickets; better buy it at 15 Euros (round trip) than paying a fine of 33 Euros!
2: Euro Disney is about 32 km from Paris center & it needs a full day. “Park-aholic” pass several days there :D Check the varying opening hours on: http://www.disneylandparis.com/en-us/faq/park-hours-schedules/
Learnt Lesson 3: Euro Disney has many areas; the 2 main of which are “Disney Studios” & “Disney Park”. Enjoy the “studios” before entering the “Park”, as the “Studios”
