Disneyland Paris Day One

June 8, 2015

Departed Liverpool on time at around 1pm for our one hour flight to Paris CDG airport.

Once we landed it took a while for the steps to come so we had to wait a bit. Once passport control was completed we walked over to terminal 2F where we caught the Magical Shuttle to Disneyland Paris. Before boarding we scanned our ticket and won a prize, a Donald Duck key ring.

We boarded the coach and it took us about 40 minutes to take us to our hotel. Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne is Wild West themed and spread out over many different buildings. We were staying in the Annie Oakley block just a short walk from the main building. After we explored our room and unpacked we caught the internal bus to the parks.

As soon as we arrived at Disneyland Paris the Magic on Parade was in full swing so we stopped to watch that, although we did not have a great view we then went and took the obligatory photographs with the castle in the background.

Our first land was Discoveryland and the first ride was Buzz Lightyear which Matthew enjoyed immensely as he is a big Toy Story fan. We then went on Star Tours which would become Matthews favourite ride in the park. The last ride in Discoveryland was Autopia, where you drive a car around a track. We then went over to Fantasyland for dinner. Matthew had a chicken burger and I had a cheeseburger on a bagel.

Adventureland was next and we went on Pirates of the Caribbean twice before returning to Fantasyland to go on Its a Small World, Dumbo and the Mad Hatters Tea Cups before going back to Pirates of the Caribbean and exploring Adventureland and Frontierland going on Big Thunder Mountain.

We finished the night by watching the firework show Disney Dreams at 11pm before heading bag to the hotel on the bus which was crazy, people just don’t understand the concept of waiting in line and think it is perfectly acceptable to just walk past people to get in front!

We finally got back to the hotel after midnight and went to sleep.
