What an amazing experience - even though we don't speak French this did not effect our experience. You can hire a machine to translate but we didn't bother but would probably do this next time.

Wow! This was a fantastic experience for the whole family. We went with grandparents as well as young children. The attractions were brilliantly done. Our only problem was lack of food for vegetarians if you didn't want to sit in the restaurants. Good memories and photos though.
