Like Disneyland, but cold and bilingual

We turned up at the gates at 8am, wrapped up against the cold and the only ones in the park. Walking down "Mainstreet USA" the shops were all closed and there wasn't another person in sight (a more accurate depiction of Mainstreet than in Disneyland LA?). We went on Space Mountain 2 again and again, without ever waiting in line. When the other rides opened we went on all of them too - never waiting more than 15 minutes. We visited Disney's Hollywood studios as well - the Tower of Terror is a classic and the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster was fantastic (higher G forces than a space shuttle launch).
The rides were all the same (except not so old and shabby looking), but it was quite odd hearing Buzz Lightyear and others speak in French. Lydia and I were very amused that the English components of the parade had a strong Australian accent, even when the speaker would say a few English words ("Disneyland Paris") in the other languages.
