Arrive. Oh no, they aren't tickets, they are vouchers -- even though from Disney's website. Step 1: stand in a queue to convert vouchers to tickets. What corporate French sadist wants me to stand in line with three excited children? Brainless.

Meanwhile, things are looking up. I needed, and have found, fried food.

OMG. How is Julian doing this? Is he texting you what he wants to post? He just texted my phone to tell me to go onto this thread. I had no idea what was coming.

Poor Julian. He's awaiting his 3rd child anxiously and yet he's in his hell-on-earth: Disneyland Paris. I hope the kids are having fun at least.

Hilarious.

Yes, all posted via SMS and me. It really does sound like hell.

To whom I am delivering my son, my daughter, her friend, and her mother, a female still of breeding age. It used to be that such delights would be taken by force, and equally resisted, or at least exchanged for other juicy plunder. No longer: in the modern world I must pay about €30 to a large US corporation for these delicate souls to come close to the pirates. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum, my hearties.
The experience appears to be taking its toll on our dear pedantic friend.
