The first years there wasn't much in the surrounding area. I really wonder what the life of a cast member must have been like. In 2000, Val d'Europe opened in Serris, a gigantic commercial center. It continues to expand.
Over the past few years the area has changed so much, I hardly recognize it. Loads and loads of houses and apartments continue being build, there are schools, university, medical centers, supermarkets, banks. Everything and anything really.
The Pep's bus I take is number 34. It goes from Val d'Europe to Chessy (and the other way around) and goes through the villages of Serris, Bailly-Romainvilliers and Magny-Le-Hongre. It used to feel like a cast member bus, but nowadays all kinds of people take this bus. Heck, I remember having to walk from Les Pleïades to Val d'Europe!
