Disneyland Paris

Friday, 27 June 2014

On the 11th June, myself and my boyfriend ventured off to Paris. This trip was all paid for as a birthday present off my boyfriend, which I was extremely grateful for. We managed to pack our suitcases the night before, slightly rushed but that's how I work best. We left pretty early in the morning as we had to travel to Gatwick Airport as this was where we were flying from. Our flight was extremely quick, only forty - five minutes on the plane, however this felt like a lifetime for me as I am not the best at flying. After we had landed in Charles de gaulles airport a shuttle bus picked us up and drove us to our hotel in Disneyland.

We stayed at the Explorers Hotel, as we had been to Disneyland Paris twice before and this was the hotel we had stayed at, so we knew we would have no problems. The Explorers Hotel is roughly a ten minute bus journey from the Disneyland Parks.  We decided to take it easy the first night and just wandered around the Disney Village as we would be doing a lot of walking the next day.

On our first day we decided to venture into Paris, as neither of us had been. We caught the train from the Disneyland Park and stopped at our first destination, the Arc De Triomph. This whole day consisted of hopping on and off a train to see all the best sights, this included, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Love Lock bridge, Notre dame and the Moulin Rouge.  My favourite out of all these places was definitely Notre Dame, it was such a beautiful building. I was extremely disappointed with the Moulin Rouge, it seemed very out of the way and didn't look very nice when passing it on the street which was such a let down as this was the place I was most excited to visit.  

 After our trip into Paris we decided to head back to the Disneyland Park as we had four days worth of park tickets which needed to be used.  We wandered around the main park for a few hours and then headed to Planet Hollywood for dinner, which was amazing. 

The next few days we spent in both the parks, the queues for the rides were so quiet and you could just walk off one ride straight on to another. The longest amount of time we spent queuing for a ride was approximately fifteen minutes, which for Disneyland is very good. My favourite ride during the whole trip was probably Thunder Mountain as we managed to go on that ride at least twice a day. I would recommend riding Thunder Mountain at night as you get to see the whole park lit up which looks so pretty and magical. 

We managed to get a photo with Aladdin and Jasmine, as the queue was quite short. However I did feel slightly embarrassed as most of the queue was filled with under seven year olds.

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Paris and Disneyland and cannot recommend the place enough, whether you are young or old you will have an amazing time as there is something for everyone. I managed to see a lot more things this time around as I stayed for six days instead of two days. We managed to watch the fireworks display which was phenomenal and the stunt show with the cars and motorbikes which was also very good.  Disneyland Paris was amazing and I hope to go again soon, however next on my travelling list is Disney world Florida, so fingers crossed.



  1. I'm not sure how you managed to only queue for 15 minutes, but that's pretty damn impressive! Sounds like you had the best time there, it is a truly magical place xx Rebecca - UK fashion blog

  2. It was so lovely, every other time I have been I would be queuing for ages, it was lovely to queue for a short amount of time. It is, I love it there, i'm hoping to go the Florida one next :)
