A friend of mine is going to Disneyland Paris in April. She wanted to hire one of their photographers to capture the special moments with her boyfriend. The price quoted was 600 Euros (£466) for one hour and 10 photos Eek . As an exercise, I priced how much it would be for me to get a return trip on Eurostar and a one day pass to the park. £175 Smokin' This would also give me 3 hours to follow them around. How can they justify such a price?

Add the £75 hourly charge and it is still a rip off

Easy, they would simply state:

We have a legal obligation to maximise the profits we create for our shareholders.

Have you priced a wedding photographer lately? Relatively speaking, this is pretty cheap.

Relatively speaking, this is pretty dumb.

Bring your digital camera and swap picture taking with other guests.

Personally Disney World is one big rip off everywhere, but I am in the minority about that. However they don't have any of my money, so I'm good with it. Big Grin

Wonder why locals call it "Tragic Kingdom?" Odd how people who go there, have nothing to say about the place, or say that it was not as great as they thought it was going to be!
