Walt Disney Studios Park
Adjoining Disneyland Park, this 2d theme park offers visitors a behind-the-scenes look at cinema, animation and television, through 4 “production zones”. The park is small next to its big brother. There are only about fifteen attractions, in addition, of uneven quality. Some are really extra, others much less.
- Frontlot: You must enter Studio 1, a reconstruction of a mythical Hollywood. In fact, it is mainly a passage to access attractions and a mini-shopping center with shops and restaurants (the equivalent of Main Street after all). The walls are only facades, decorations in fact.
- Toon Studio: This area is devoted to the art of animation, the source of Disney's success. This is where you will go primarily with children under 10 years old.
- Production Courtyard: Here we are behind the scenes of cinema and television.
- Backlot: This last area is especially devoted to special effects and stunts.

The rapidus pass (€ 30!) Gives priority access to the 8 main attractions.
Parc Astérix is divided into 6 universes:
- Gaul, where we find the village of Asterix,
- Roman Empire,
- ancient Greece (great reconstruction of a small village on the Aegean coast, with its taverns and white and blue houses),
- Through time, for a journey from the Middle Ages to the XNUMXth century,
- the Vikings zone, for those who have goudurix
- and finally, Egypt, with its pharaonic attraction, Oziris!
In terms of entertainment, the park is divided between 2 strong points: shows (3, plus entertainment in the Village) and thrill rides.
Guinguettes of Val-de-Marne
Chez Géla-Sardine, La Goulue, Le Petit Robinson, L & rsquoPêcheur: names that are sometimes poetic, often evocative, willingly scoundrels. The open-air café has been on the rise for a few years, and that's good.
What are the constraints of moving outside the new borders? Banks of the Marne for many of them, edges of the Seine for others.
The dictionary recalls that it is "a popular place of pleasure generally located in the suburbs of a big city". We drink there of course (and not just white wine), but we dance there too. The main dances performed from the XNUMXth century in taverns were imported by the different waves of immigration: waltz, mazurka, quadrille and scottish. The musette will come only later, brilliantly relayed to the accordion by phenomena like Jo Privat.
Tombérétro and have found a new youth, at the same time as a new audience. So wax your heels, secure your boater firmly and "heat Marcel, heat!" ".
Today, they remain masters of the menu.
- Bergerie Nationale farm in the park of the Château de Rambouillet:
For more than two centuries, the Bergerie has been a place of agricultural experimentation. It is here that the technique of artificial insemination was developed. Today, it brings together production activities but also training in various agricultural professions. She specialized in agroecology. Although sheep remain the most numerous, cows, chickens, goats, pigs and poultry are also raised there. Educational panels, demonstration workshops, and even a “cuddly” corner punctuate the visit, which lasts about 2 hour.
