One of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, Disneyland Paris is a fantastic place to visit for the whole family. It is a little piece of Disney outside the United States of America, but still manages to bring a fantastic experience for all its millions of visitors each year.
Opens its doors for the first time April 12, 1992, Disneyland Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallée, a city in eastern Paris, the French capital. It was decided to build a Disney resort in Paris after the resounding success of both the Disneyland resort in California and Florida, and the first Disneyland to be built outside of America, the 1983 opening of Tokyo Disneyland. Taking four years to build, work began on Disneyland Paris in 1988. There was a debate in which the site should be, with a preliminary list of 1,200 places as possible. Reduced to only four, the two Spanish sites were rejected because of problems building predictable, leaving Toulon and Marne-la-Vallee, France. After much discussion, it was chosen because it would be less than four hours to almost 70 million people and only 2 hours flying to over 300 million more.
The Disneyland Paris complex consists of three main areas, which can be divided into -
Hotel – built over the entrance to Disneyland Park, the hotel is widely regarded as the most impressive hotel in the area. Disney also provided guests with a selection of hotels or other built around ‘Lake Disney’ theme and their expectations. While there are several Disney-run hotels on the site, there are a selection of other hotels that meet all tastes and, most importantly, budgets. None of the hotels are in fact based on the Disneyland site, but a free shuttle service is provided throughout the day.
Disneyland Park – the actual place where many people consider it a ‘Disneyland’ is Disneyland Park, the site where 140acre sites are hosted almost fifty years. Divided into five ‘lands’ separate, each is themed around a specific idea Disney. Main Street, USA features, as expected, several American-based racing and Frontierland has a lot of cowboy and Indian themed rides, including the famous Big Thunder Mountain. The last three lands, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland all with some spectacular rides and attractions, theme and so incredibly to the point that it is difficult to believe you’re not part of a cartoon or a movie!
Extra attractions – While most would be satisfied with the hotels and masses of fantastic rides in Disneyland Park, Disney decided that a selection of other attractions that make the whole bit extra ‘special. From Disneyland Village, which offers a wide selection of restaurants and shops (a Disney theme, of course) there are a variety of other attractions, including two separate golf courses.
There are many Disney theme parks in the world, each designed, themed and professionally created by Disney. Each Disney theme parks around the world will be slightly different, but all guarantee that you will have a great time, whatever your age.

Trekking to Everest to continue to capture the imagination of mountaineers and trekkers from around the world. Since its discovery, hundreds of shipments have been made to the highest mountain in the world. Some have ended in disaster, others have found new routes to the record high reached or significant. Here are five of the most famous expeditions to Everest …
1924 – The expedition Mallory
The famous English explorer and mountaineer George Mallory had made a previous attempt the summit in 1922, an expedition which met with disaster when seven porters, died in an avalanche. In 1924, he returned to Everest base camp determined to make the top, causing one of the most famous and tragic expeditions in the history of the mountain.
On June 8, 1924, George Mallory, next to his climbing partner Andrew Irvine, made his second attempt, and ultimately unsuccessful on the top of Everest. Trekking and climbing on dangerous ground, were identified by Noel Odell (another member of the expedition) on what seemed to be the second step, a few hours after the ascent of the summit itself. Either Mallory or Irvine had down. Mallory’s body was finally discovered in 1999, but Irvine has never been found. Debate rages on in the mountaineering community as to whether or not one of them made the summit before his death.
1953 – First ascent of success
29 years after the shipment Mallory, Edmund Hillary (a New Zealand climber) and Tenzing Norgay (Sherpa Nepalese one) has finally made the first confirmed ascent of Mount Everest. Their journey to Mount Everest was part of a British expedition in March 1953 it was finally determined to conquer the highest mountain in the world. Settled in Base Camp, two members of the expedition (Tom Bourdillon and Charles Evans) made the first attempt, but were driven back 300 meters from the summit due to bad weather and a faulty oxygen system. Two days later, on May 29, 1953, Hillary and Tenzing made up, becoming the first man to climb the highest point on Earth. On his return from the summit, Hillary met with her partner George Lowe and said simply. “Well, George, we beat the bastard off”
1980 – First solo ascent
In 1980, the veteran Italian climber Reinhold Messner Everest trek had put a record already in 1978, he and his climbing partner Peter Habeler became the first climbers to climb Everest without using bottled oxygen, rejecting the demands of a large number of mountaineers and doctors of the time, he thought that this was impossible. In 1980 he founded another record, becoming the first solo ascent of Mount Everest (without oxygen).
1996 – Everest Disaster
1996 was a tragic year for the Everest trek – Fifteen people died, eight of them in one day, in what is the worst disaster on Everest to date.
On May 10, 1996, 30 climbers from Everest Base Camp party to make their attempts at the top. A series of delays and the large number of climbers making the ascent has meant that many reached the summit after 2:00 am, much later than is considered safe. During the descent, a sudden storm hit the mountain, burying the fixed ropes used in climbing and hiding the path back to base camp of Everest. Because of poor visibility mountaineers were quickly separated and lost, and eight of them died of exposure. More poignant was the case of Rob Hall – having stayed behind to try to help another member of the expedition was stranded on the south summit. It ‘been able to talk to his wife by satellite phone, saying: “Sleep well, my darling. Please, do not worry too much,” before he died soon after.
2004 – Ascent faster than ever
There are all types of records associated with climbing Mount Everest, in 2004 and Pemba Dorje (a Nepalese Sherpa) set an impressive one – the fastest ever ascent and descent of Everest success, making it return on the southeast ridge est in eight hours and ten minutes.
With plenty of records to break and even hundreds of climbers each year, determined to make the top, Everest trek will continue to create new heroes (and new tragedies) for the years to come.
