What is the best time of year to visit DLP? When is it least crowded and the weather is relatively decent? I really want to ride Space Mountain there. Sounds very cool.

Thanks for any info.....

Carl,

The best time to visit is in the winter. Apart from anything the train fare is cheapest and the total lack of any queues anywhere mean that it's quite feasible for you to do the entire park in a day - and the best rides twice.

One thing to watch out for is that the park will shut one of it's rides a week for maintenence through the winter, so it's best to ring up and check before you leave.

Oh - and take some warm clothes. Paris in January isn't exactly warm.

I've been two Januarys on the trot now. The first year it was clear and sunny but chilly, but last year was foggy and cold (wasn't it Moose!) The first year, I managed about 9 goes on Space Mountain alone. So yes, winter is best and it's cheaper to get into the park, too. Don't forget there's also a shopping arcade/restaurant area just outside the park should it get cold.

You were only cold because you were only wearing a bikini and hot pants.. someone should have told you it was the Pairs Disney we were going to and not the Florida one.

Did I mention that I'm going to Florida on Thursday? (gloat) :)

The Pairs Disney? Is that, like, for couples or something? Anyway, I was wearing my leather strides! I never wear bikini tops on rides unless I've a T-shirt over the top on account of the fact airtime and inversions can play havoc with a lady's frontal assets. And I have no desire to be featured on that Flash Mountain website!

Pick on my spelling will you?! Well fine. See if you get a postcard from the Sunshine State... :P

Look out for me on Flash Mountain - once an exhibitionist, always an exhibitionist.
