A crazy experience that I had already lived 15 years ago, 15 years later in family the emotion is always there. It's sensational, to do at least once in your life. On the other hand, a small downside which is important, you will have to arm yourself with crazy patience if you do not have a priority pass or emotion! VERY VERY... LONG WAIT FOR THE SITE'S FLAGSHIP ACTIVITIES (1h to 1h30 to queue to be sure to have a place and again, we are all piled up against each other and come what may, no management of flow by the par we self-manage then they place us at the enclosure). I would like to thank my 2 children who were EXEMPLARY during this long and exhausting day which they nevertheless knew how to appreciate. TO PLAN FOR YOUR STAY (phone charged to the max, stroller, good walking/running shoes, comfortable clothing, weather...).
