Last year we visited Disneyland Paris. I must say we visited with trepidation, as we love Disney World Florida. However decided to give Paris a try. So here is what is great about Disneyland Paris.
We stayed at Disney’s New York Hotel.
The location of the Hotel was excellent, you stepped out of the hotel and you were at the top of Disney Village and just a short stroll from the Disney Parks. This was great at the end of a busy day as 5 minutes and you were in the hotel and able to chill with a nice glass of wine.
The hotel staff were so friendly and could not do enough for you.
As it was Halloween the Hotel was all trimmed up. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, breakfast was spread over several restaurants to make the experience more intimate, and it worked. We never once felt rushed; we were able to enjoy breakfast at our leisure. As the staff knew Jack suffered from Type 1 Diabetes they were happy for us to take away a snack in case he went low in the parks.
The pool was fantastic, we visited in the afternoons, which was great for us as we got to sit on a lounger and chill for a while ready for a hectic night back in the parks. Every day there was a couple of time slots for photo opportunities with the Disney Characters, we got to spend a little longer having our photos taken, and it was a touch more intimate than in the parks.
As it was Halloween the atmosphere was wonderful; the air was crisp and cool, and the leaves were falling from the trees.
As we walked through the avenues of Disney snug and warm wrapped up in winter coats and hats, the leaves crunched under our feet, and the boys threw them into the air and ran through them laughing, moments like that were as special as the parks themselves.
For all those princess fan out there, you will never see the Sleeping Beauty castle anywhere else in the world.
What I love about Disney is its consistency. When visiting the parks, you can expect the same quality as you experience in Florida or any other park.
Much to Chris and the Boys embarrassment my favourite ride is ‘It’s a small world’. And it was as wonderful here as it was in Orlando. The boys are very adventurous so could wait to get on Pirates of the Caribbean, again the quality and experience was fantastic and consistent with what I have come to expect from Disney.
