    Just had an email from an ex work mate who still drives coaches and does a lots of visits to Disneyland Paris. And he asked me to ask on this forum the following questions!

    1. Would iit be exceptable for him to park his tour bus in a french aire and use ehu,

    2. Could he empty his Black & Grey waste tanks he understands
    that this is not allowed as the signs say so but cant we live and let
    live.

    Thanks

    Dont think this would go down very well and there would be quite a few Aires he wouldnt fit on. I did see a coach conversion camper on an Aire on the Siene once though.

    Hookups on Aires are usually on the Bourne and for an hour only when they work. Most Aires dont have hookup anywhere else and if they do it never works unless your on a posh one that charges say 10 euros a night.

    I see the irony in the post.

    Confused now.

    Is it or isn't it allowed to park a MH overnight in DLP and use the facilities?

    It clearly states on my Passeport Annuel that overnight parking is allowed.
    Also regarding the OP and EH,the only EH I know of is by the coach dump.I only know of that because I saw an Italian run a cable from the box,through the hedge and up to the parking. Cheeky beggar!!!
    Maybe that's the EH your friend is referring to.

    Got it in one. There is a coach park and a block with showers/Toilets for the use of the Coach Drivers only. some motorhome users seem that just cause they are there they can ignore the rule, and in case on the electric steal power. and some put power cables out of the toilet windows and run them to there vans.

    There is a coach toilet dump which is huge as it is built for coaches, then it would be as its coach dump. There is also 6 to 8 water stands once again on the coach park.

    my mate has already started to get a petition going to get the toilet block locked and keys issued on production of Coach Vehicle Documents to drivers when they require to use them.

    As they are feb up with Non Coach Driving persons using the showers, dumping their crap down the toilets and using the electric points.

    Some motorhomers harp on out the freedom but it seems to me that once there is free water, waste disposal for free they are there like a rat down a pipe.

    I dont wont to get in an argument just that if it says dont use the coach drivers toilets please dont. Simples:Smile:

    Don't want to get into an argument ?
    my arse.

    Isn't this something for Disney to decree upon rather than you ranting?

    Just a thought.

    What part of Disney give camping car owners permission to use the facilities do you not get? Its all on the sheet they give you at the entry gate.

    You are ranting at people for doing what they have been told they can do. The facilities are NOT just for coach drivers. You have the wrong information I am afraid.

    Is this just a case of you were not aware of these facts? If not I can understand why you would see it as an issue. However the facts are not as you believed them to be.

    The real solution is to stay away from Disney. I've managed it so far.:BigGrin:
