Hey guys! 😀
So as some of you may know, I recently got back from my trip to Paris with Adam and we went to Disneyland (main reason for going *bigkids*) and we had a wonderful time and had so much fun along the way. I have always dreamed of going to Paris one day and when my boyfriend told me we were going for my birthday I was simply over the moon, what a gem. We went for 4 nights and we had 2-day 2-park tickets for Disneyland and honestly did not want to leave that place! It was amazing and everything I dreamed it to be and more, I am most certainly going back there one day. I could honestly write a huge essay on our trip there so I am going to try to fit it all in this little post! *WARNING* huge spam of Disney photos! Couldn’t help it haha..
We arrived at Paris Charles de gaulle airport on Tuesday afternoon around 1pm and after unboarding the plane and getting our bags and stuff we then got picked up by our transfer taxi and travelled around 30 minutes to our hotel. We checked in and went up to look at the room and we were very surprised that the room was bigger than we thought, it was more of a mini apartment, it had a kitchenette and sofa, tv and table and chairs! It was pretty decent, even tho we didn’t stay there much it was nice to have lots of room. It also came with a lovely bathroom with a big shower and a bath so we had baths every night after being so exhausted from lots of walking around! We went out to explore that evening, found the train station and travelled somewhere for food. Not really sure where we got off but it was a huge place with lots of shops and we got ourselves a McDonalds! Typical us, we love our McDonalds! 😉 We then went back to the hotel and got some sleep ready for Disney the next day!
We’re going to Disneyland yay! We woke up, had our breakfast in the hotel, croissants, hot chocolate and fresh orange juice YUM! Then got the shuttle bus to Disneyland from our hotel which was only €2 a day each and took like 5 minutes! We spent the whole day at Disneyland from about 10:30am until it closed and got back about 9:30pm. Obviously the first thing I did was go into the nearest shop and purchase myself some Minnie Mouse ears with the red bow! AWWW love them. We explored both parks and got to meet some characters including Captain Hook & Smee, they were so funny! My sister got me an autograph book before we went too, so every character we met we got their autograph as well as a photo with them. 🙂 One of my favourite bits was getting to see the Parade and I was loving the song and dance atmosphere. We had our lunch/dinner in the Hakuna Matata restaurant which was pretty cool if I must say! The meal we had was Chicken strips, hakuna fries, a yoghurt and drink, it was unbelievably good!! So delicious and really filled us up! We carried on walking around both parks and explored as much as possible. I dragged Adam on all the rides haha, Space Mission 2 was awesome! I was so friggin scared before tho, but I loved the thrill of it, especially as it is inside and in the dark so you have no idea what to expect?! We also went on Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast which we really enjoyed, even tho it kept crashing down and stopping for a minute hahaha technical problems ayy 😉 You had a score for your gun and Adams was so high, he’s good at everything! LOL. Another thing I loved was Alice in Wonderlands Curious Labyrinth! It was so cool to walk around and finally we found our way to the castle and the view of Disneyland was beautiful up there. At the end of the night we seen the Magical Castle light show and OMG it was everything I dreamed it would be and more, I was fascinated watching it and didn’t want it to end. All the lights and fireworks and songs were just so fantastic, it was BRILLIANT! After a long day we went back to our hotel, muched on some junk food before we went to sleep, we so needed to rest our legs! Zzzzz…
Our 2nd day at Disneyland today! So we woke up and had breakfast and got ready to get the shuttle bus to Disney again for the day. We wanted to try and meet lots of characters and we succeeded! We got autographs and photographs with Mickey, Woody, White Rabbit, Pinocchio & Geppetto, Marie & Goofy! My favourite has got to be Marie, she was so cute and funny, she is one of my favourite characters too and I went and bought a teddy of her to take home with me. 😀 We seen the magical parade again which was great to watch and we were also luckily enough to see their Harvest festival Autumn Halloween parade thingy in the morning! As it was the 1st October, so that was awesome. I loved that the parks were filled with Pumpkin decorations for Halloween and it was really well decorated and set out lovely, loved it. Obviously at the end of our amazing day at Disney, we stood and watched the Magical Castle light show again, and it was great to be able to experience again before we went home, cannot wait to go back again in the future!
So we only had 1 day to try fit a few things in as their is so much to do and go see in Paris, but we mainly came here for Disney but will be organise a trip in the future to just go to explore Paris on all it has to offer. So we managed to get the train into the centre of Paris, right to the Eiffel Tower. When I first laid eyes on the tower, I was like WOW it is so tall! So amazing to actually be seeing it with my own eyes rather on just a picture, incredible. As we got closer we took lots of photographs and selfies *ohYEAH* and it was such a warm day too, the sun was shining and it was perfect. The queues to go actually up onto the Eiffel Tower was crazzzzyyyy so we thought we didn’t want to waste a couple of hours that we have left just queuing so that is on our checklist for next time for sure! We walked around some shops and sat outside a cafe in the sunshine and had baguettes! YUMMY. We then went into Notre Dame and seen the cathedral which was wonderful to look at, we had a character drawing done of us right outside too which was a nice experience. We walked along to the famous Love Lock bridge which was insane! Soooo many locks, crazy. Adam got us an engraved lock before we went to Paris and it had out names in a heart, such a sweetheart haha. We added our lock to the bridge, had a kiss and chucked our keys into the river and made our wishes. Was perfect! ❤️ we then went to have pizza and spaghetti bolognese and some drinks in a lovely restaurant before we headed back to the hotel. Before we went back to the hotel we also got crepes with chocolate and banana, it was soooo good, I LOVE CREPES!
The next day we woke up and had our last breakfast at the hotel and headed to the airport. We were exhausted!
We both had such an amazing trip away filled with lots of laughs and smiles! Loved it 🙂 cannot wait to go again one day!
