Euro Disney, Paris
The big day is here, we are off to Euro Disney, I don’t know who is more excited me, my daughter or my granddaughter.
The hotel we are staying at provides a free bus shuttle to the park so getting there is nice and easy, it takes approximately 10 minutes to get there and as we pass each poster, my little granddaughter gets more and more excited.
There really is nothing better than seeing life through the eyes of a 3 year old, everything is so new and exciting
There are 2 shuttle bus car parks (which explains why we couldn’t find the bus when we arrived. There are moving walkways so the walk to the park isn’t so bad.
When you arrive you have to queue to get in, this involves going through security scanners similar to the airport, all bags have to go through luggage scanners also.
There are security personnel all around here, some with machine guns and some with muzzled dogs, again, this does detract from the fun atmosphere, but some people feel safer. I guess it just comes down to personal preference.
We had not bought tickets in advance which meant a queue at the ticket booth of approx 30 minutes. It also meant the tickets were more expensive; if possible always buy in advance. There are many different types of tickets and concessions, but on the door it is 89 Euros for adults and 79 Euros for children over 3 years of age for just one park.
You also have to choose if you want one park or two parks, we choose one and didn’t have time to see and do all we wanted (but we did leave at 6 pm)
The weather was reasonable and only rained lightly.
We did not take a picnic with us and the food selection in the main street is quite limited, hotdogs, chips etc but there are different restaurants located in the different sections selling a better variety of food.
The only real downside for us was the lack of Characters that walk around; they are not available for long and only at specific times.
The shows are fantastic and we saw each one, having a toddler the shows were more important than the rides.
We went in April and the average waiting time for a ride was 40 minutes, with the park not looking too crowded.
Overall the park was wonderful (pricey, but definitely worth it) here is a photo diary of the day.
