Visiting Disneyland in Paris has always been a dream of mine and I get to thoroughly enjoy it. My idea of pre-booking the tickets was on point. I really didn't want to take any chances. Every moment I spent there was magical and I even got past the queue pretty fast. If you are going to visit Disneyland you better get an advance ticket booked, trust me it really helps.

The transport to La Vallée Village was very comfortable. The pickup and drop off was conducted very well. I and my partner engaged in a good shopping escapade where we spent hours buying various things. The village is one of the prominent places to shop and have a good time, overall. I would recommend every person who wants to get into some shopping should definitely visit La Vallee Village. It is worth every penny.
The Picasso National Museum carried a ton of history. From the painting to the sculptures to the actual design of the museum everything is historical. Me, being a history buff I was engrossed in the place.
What an elegant place to discover. I always wanted to visit Picasso National Museum and I found this great discount they were providing on the tickets so I booked them for myself and my parents on our trip to Paris. We just showed our Thrillophilia vouchers on the location and they instantly allowed us in. I really liked it and would definitely recommend Thrillophilia.
The overall experience I would say was very positive. A must-try, I would say.
