Once upon a time, in a land not so far away…I had a fantastic few days at Disneyland Resort Paris. We experienced the trip as a couple, but even if you travelled as a family stress levels are minimum because Eurostar makes the journey so simple. With trains for Waterloo or Ashford right to the heart of the magic in just a few hours.
I stayed at the Newport Bay Club Hotel about a ten/fifteen minute walk from the park entrance. The accommodation was comfortable, with a seafaring New England theme – but I didn’t spend a lot of time there. After all who wants to be inside when you could be climbing Sleeping Beauty’s Castle or fighting with the Pirates of the Caribbean?
Once inside, meeting the Disney characters are easy as there are specific meeting times and places on the park maps. There are also endless amounts of shows and parades that provide good opportunities to see all your favourites. I was relieved that all these shows and rides used French and English to provide a high level of enjoyment to us all, adults and children alike.
I would suggest making your stay a minimum of two nights, as a day trip or one night would definitely be exhausting! And then if you find you have some spare time, why not go to Paris? The train station is just a short walk away!
So if your routine is becoming hum-drum – follow me and escape to a magical place…. Where the baddies never win and the good guys live happily ever after!
