Dedicated to Disneyland Paris Podcast

The bedroom renovations of the Newport Bay Club were all we had for news this week, so we opened it up to all of you, and you gave us your opinions of the Christmas celebrations in Disneyland Paris this year. We also gave you the opportunity to Ask Us Anything, and as always we got a wide variety of interesting questions. Listen as we discuss the good and bad of Disneyland Paris, the best restaurants, Armageddon, a 3rd park and much more.
