We are all Big Kids at Heart

Today was my birthday and to celebrate mum had bought tickets to Disneyland Paris!!! You can never be too old for Disney 🙂

Getting up early and having breakfast we packed our day bags and caught the train towards Disneyland Paris – The train tickets to Disneyland were €9 each.

When we arrived at Disneyland it was 10:30AM, because Walt Disney Studios closed earlier than Disneyland Paris we decided to head there first.

Walt Disney Studios is Pixar character based, so we went on rides based on Toy story, Cars and Finding Nemo,

Cheeeeese!

Cheeeeese!

There was also a Haunted House, which is similar to the giant drop and an awesome music themed rollercoaster. Everyone was proud of mum for going on this as it is in the dark and filled with turns, drops and loop de loops, not mum’s idea of fun. But we were proud that mum gave the rides ago 🙂

A couple hours later and with most of the rides ticked off, we went in hunt for some lunch. Unfortunately most of the shops were closed so we grabbed Nutella crapes and watched the Pixar Parade.

The line ups for this park were averaging about 30-45 minutes, so by the time we had done all of the rides and explored the park it was 3PM so we made our way to Disneyland Paris. On our way out we saw Mickey Mouse, so heading over to him we got his autograph and Alfie had a photo with him.

Entering Disneyland Paris we could see it was a lot less busier and the line ups were averaging 10 minutes, which was awesome!

We went on the Indian Jones ride first and then headed to where the next parade was. This time it was filled with the well known Disney characters 🙂

It was then time to tick off all of the rides, so we made our way around and took it in turns riding and looking after Alfie.

The minimum age to go on rides seemed to be 1 years, so when we went on the tea cup ride we told the lady Alfie was 13 months so that he could go on something and he thoroughly enjoyed himself.

Afterwards Tim and I got lost in the Alice in wonderland maze, and then we all went to grab a bite to eat. Lasagna, salad/chips, drink and ice cream was the lunch bundle meal at the restaurant we went in to and tasted very nice.

By 8PM the family was getting tired so they went to find a place to sit down and save for the night time show. Tim and I explored some more before heading back to find them.

The 9PM show at Disneyland Paris is amazing! It is based at the castle and involves laser projection to project Disney characters onto it. It was fun to sing along to the songs and watch the fireworks.

Overall it was a great day at Disneyland and a lovely way to spend my birthday. Thank you for a lovely day xx
