Disneyland Paris: Day One

in disney, travel, February 5, 2017

We woke up rather early (6:30am) on the first day to get the Eurostar, after staying in London the night before. We checked in to the Eurostar and boarded pretty much straightaway. It felt like we got to France in no time because I fell asleep before we went in the tunnel and woke up after we came out. We got to Lille and the first thing we saw was Primark and ‘Le Pub’ so we felt right at home, however we had a long wait at Lille, it was freezing cold and the station was dripping. It was so cold I bought a cookie and it was rock hard! We got on the train to Marne-la-Vallée Chessy and it felt rather quick after waiting for it for so long.

After a quick shuttle bus ride, we all met up outside Hotel Cheyenne and checked in together. We paid 10€ altogether for an upgrade to one of the newly refurbished rooms. They were kitted out with Woody’s Round Up themed gear and we loved the Toy Story theming in the bathroom and bedroom – especially the curtains and the horseshoe mirror. We spent some time unpacking before heading out to the hotel shop and being amazed by everything.

We then headed out to the Disneyland Park, where I bought ears and I quote “I can’t see the castle if I don’t have Minnie ears on!”. I saw the castle for the first time and oh my god I nearly cried. It was magical. We went to City Hall to reserve a table at the Chuck Wagon Café in our hotel for dinner, looked around Main Street a bit and got our teatime treat from Casey’s. We only managed to get one ride in before Dreams, which was Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast – I was SO bad at it haha, but loved spinning around. We took our spot for Dreams and danced around while waiting because it was absolutely freezing! Once it began I couldn’t take my eyes off the castle. Dreams is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen and I wish I could watch it every night.

We went back to the Cheyenne for our dinner, it was such a relief to sit down and eat. I had plenty of carbs for dinner which is always good and a Cornetto to finish. We went back to the room and watched Disney Channel.
