    Would anyone have a Disneyland Paris Risk Assessment that they have completed? This is the first time my school is going and I am not very confident of getting started on this on my own!!

    Ask Disneyland. They'll have a generic RA lined up already.

    Disneyland will have copious documentation for risk-assessing the rides.
    You will need to focus on safety during the journey, particularly breaks at service areas and the crossing of the channel.
    While in the park, you will need to ensure that children cannot stray away from the part of the complex you are visiting and know how to find or contact you in the event of an emergency.
    It's a big place!

    When I was school EVC I bought a cheap mobile phone (£10) and put another £10 of credit on it. Then I could issue that number to all the kids so that they could contact me if necessary. It was also useful if you had to ring a parent because then they didn't get your personal number. The phone was kept specially for trips and borrowed frequently by those running them.

    Your school should have a trained EVC who is there to assist/train you in this sort of thing.

    Thankfully I did the French exchanges (covering a visit to Eurodisney) before the days of "Risk Assessments". The only risk I found to be present was my desire to physically and robustly remove the Spanish and other nationality kids when they were incessantly queue jumping.

    If you did get a risk assessment sent to you from either tmac or Disneyland I’d be interested in getting a copy too please.
