What disadvantages does tourism bring from disneyland paris to the locals?

More people, crowds, noise, rubbish, but no money as they spend all their money in Disneyland who do not pay for the extra work of handling those large crowds (I’m talking about those people who go straight the park and then straight home, of course). As well, the locals around the park (it isn’t in Paris but in the far subburbs) do not have many advantages. The jobs go to young bi-lingual people, very few of them are from the surrounding areas, the food and other items are bought from big non-local companies, the traffic jams from visitors can grid-lock the town, and the cleaning up, repairs and maintenance of the area around the park is paid by the locals through their taxes. Of course, the park does pay taxes but it got many, many tax cuts and financial advantages to build it here. You asked only for disadvantages so I didn’t put in the advantages.
