So as you all know I’ve been to Disneyland Paris this week and my gosh was it amazing. Not only did I venture to Disneyland but my friends and I took a train into Paris and had a long adventure around Paris. 4 days of pure magic and excitement has exhausted me but it was so worth it.
Monday 23rd of March, I woke up at 3.30 filled with excitement. We arrived at the airport 2 and half hours beforehand and so we decided we could treat ourselves to have a Frankie and Benny’s breakfast. After checking in and sorting all our cases out we were ready to board our plane. I was a tad nervous while boarding the plane as I hadn’t been on one for 16 years and when you’re a kid you just don’t care but being 23 your mind goes on overdrive with what can go wrong. The flight was only short but I really worked myself up and got myself into a bit of a state. However one we’ve had gone through border control etc, it was time to get aboard the Disney shuttle bus that would take us straight to our Disney hotel. I could feel the excitement building up in me like nothing else before. The sun was out and made the sky a crisp blue which was something we didn’t see in England before we left. A 25 minute trip later on the bus and I could see in the distance Disney Studios. I think I nearly squealed with excitement. Our hotel was the Santa Fe, a cars themed hotel which was beyond amazing! After dropping our suitcases and things in our hotel room, we hopped on the shuttle bus that take us to the park and we let the magic begin. The outfit I was rocking was topped off with my first purchase in Disneyland and that was my Mickey Mouse ears. A floral bomber from Zara that was one my wish list before my birthday, with my burgundy roll neck and skinny jeans. I did wear my cape in the morning on the way to the airport due to it being so cold. Most of the day was spent taking in the sights of around the park and being huge kids in the Disney Store. We eat in few places like Hakuna Matata restaurant which was basically our first meal being in Disneyland. Then on the evening we ate in Billy Bob’s restaurant. Being awake for so long killed us, as well as the stress of the airport we we’re ready for bed that night!
The first part of day 2 consisted of heading the to the Walt Disney Studios to have a look at all the movie aspects of Disney. It was really interesting and just so cool. Getting to see all the movies like Toy Story, Monsters inc, Ratatouille and Finding Nemo in one place. My outfit for day 2 consisted of my Vintage Mickey mouse jumper with my dungarees and of course topped off with my Mickey Mouse ears. The only full picture of my outfit is this one with Mike from Monsters inc (sorry about the blur) We then went back into the main park and went on a few rides like Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice’s Curious Labyrinth. We didn’t eat too much on that day because we had a reservation within the Cafe’ Mickey, so we went to an all you can eat buffet within the Buzz Lightyear Restaurant the food was lovely. After returning back to the hotel to freshen up and have a change of outfit we returned back to the Disney Village for our reservation to Cafe’ Mickey. A Cafe’ where you sit and have a meal and all the Disney characters come around your table and you can have your photograph with them. This was the one thing I was waiting for the whole holiday. I just couldn’t wait. Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Goofy were in the night we was in the Cafe’. I got a photograph with them all. The food was also sogood!
Day 3 consisted of Paris. We got on a train all on our own because the people at the information desk didn’t help us at all, we spoke to them in English and they spoke to us back in French. Super helpful. However we made it to Paris and with a help of a trusty map we walked all around Paris to all the locations we wanted to go see. We saw the ppadlock bridge, The Notre Dame, The Louvre, The Arc De Triumph and most of all The Eiffel Tower. We went up the Eiffel tower which I can only make half way because I’m terrified of heights and also lifts. But I got to the second platform which I’m proud of myself to even get that far. photo to the left is the view from the second platform My outfit for Paris was my neoprene Zara coat, my peg leg trousers from ASOS, striped topman jumper, my fedora hat and my leather satchel back pack. It had a very Parisian vibe and I loved it so much. However the weather was windy and a tad cold so I did suffer a little but it was so worth it. After spending the day in Paris we took the train back to Disneyland to watch the Disney Dreams fireworks which was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.
The final day of our stay, most of the day was spent packing and getting ready to go home. We went to the park for the last time and brought lots of souvenirs and gifts for people. I got a lot of souvenirs for myself which I love! My last outfit of the holiday consisted of my brand new Mickey Mouse hoodie I purchased while staying in the park, with my skinny jeans, my trench coat and of course my mickey mouse ears. The last day was so sad, it just went so quickly. We were trying to take as many photos as possible before we left to make sure we had lots of memories from the holiday. This holiday was my first holiday in 16 years and I spent it with my favourite people in the world. It was the best birthday I could ever of wished for and it just was amazing. We are already in talks about going to Disney world next year! I hope so because that’ll be sun, sun, sun and Disney for 2 whole weeks!! How amazing would that be?? The picture below just shows all of the souvenirs I brought for myself. I did get gifts for other people who also included mugs, socks, tea towels and magnets. Best holiday of my life so far. I just can’t wait to go to Florida if it goes ahead!
