What is the FNAC Store in Paris?

I read that FNAC is where you can get tickets to Disneyland Paris. They have a few locations at CDG. Is this a retail store or like a Ticketmaster where you can get tickets for tours etc. Would the tourism desk at CDG have Disney tickets as well? Only interested in 1 day 1 park. Want to take in a day at Disney, but main reason to come to Paris is to take in museums and Eiffel Tower. Where is the best place to get them? I don't want to get off the RER and wait in the ticket line. I want to have tickets or vouchers in hand upon arrival.

For the museums (but not Disneyland), look into the Paris Museum Pass. There's a pass with a similar name that you don't want, so be careful before buying.
You can buy the Paris Museum Pass at CDG (look for the red circular "I" sign), FNAC department stores, other TI's, or at some of the museums.

FNAC are large book, music, electronics stores in Paris and all of France. The ticket counters are usually on the ground floor.

I've also seen a printing kiosk in their outlet in the Gare de Lyon . . .

When are you going? I took the RER to Disneyland last September and walked up to the gate and bought tickets immediately. There was no line. I went from train station to the first ride in about 10 minutes.

Going in October. I am looking to buy the tickets prior to arrival. You will pay full price at the gate vs online in advance.

I went to Disneyland Paris last April and purchased the tickets right at the main park entrance when I arrived. The whole process took maybe 10 minutes. If you aren't able to buy them in advance, don't worry and just get them when you arrive to the park!

According to the official Disneyland Paris website, a single ticket for 1 day is $85.00. I would just buy at the gate.

To an American, things Disney are neither unusual nor exotic.
...and how is Disney exotic to a someone in France??? The theme park has been there for over 20 years. It's films, and TV show, are viewed by millions of people in France everyday.

Disneyland Paris is for a European audience a glorious mixture of France and America. A dubbed USA. It is a theme park America, from Main St, USA through the rides. Some better, some worse than the American versions.

It also represents the best of the USA. And that is the key point. For Europeans America is exotic. We get the best of it on TV and in film, possibly the America America wants to be and this American-ness we like. Because it is different. And Disney represents this America. We hold the United States to the standards it claims for itself. And if the USA does not deliver, Disney does. Disneyland Paris is the United States of America we want the United States of America to be.

I would like to add that I am a natural born cynic, and I love Disneyland Paris with its cracks and strange Franco-Americanism.

Though if you want French, Parc Asterix is brill!

To add to the subject, le Fnac is one of my favourite lurks in France. French comic books (Bandes Desinees) are one of my weaknesses and le Fnac (la Federation Nationale des Artisans de Commerces) are one of my favourite places to find them.
