As you might know by now (if you don’t where have you been?!) I am a huge lover of anything and everything Disney, so when I saw this tag I just HAD to do it!
I also thought I’d add in a few pictures from my trips over the years.
This tag was originally created by the wonderful Ellie Steadman who’s videos I cannot get enough of!
1. When was your first trip and how many times have you been?
My first trip to Disneyland Paris was when I was around 18 months I believe and I have been every year apart from 3 years since that trip, I am now 18 and often went more than once a year, so I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve been!
2. What Disney hotels have you stayed in? One you haven’t stayed in that you’d liked too?
I’ve stayed in the Disneyland Hotel every time I’ve been apart from four times, and it is of course my favourite! The other hotels I’ve stayed in are The Magic Circus Hotel, The Explorers Hotel and The Dream Castle Hotel. A hotel I would like to stay in would be the Newport Bay Club, as it looks so picturesque and grande.
3. What’s your favourite restaurant?
I think I’d have to say my favourite is the Plaza Gardens which is located in the Disneyland Park on Main Street U.S.A, because they have the most amazing buffet! Although, I did have Annette’s Diner for the first time this year when I visited, and that is good too!
4. A restaurant you’d like to eat in that you haven’t yet?
A restaurant I’d like to eat at which I haven’t yet would be Bistrot Chez Remy in the Walt Disney Studios, as the food looks so yummy!
5. What’s your favourite quick service/fast food?
My favourite fast food is without a doubt Restaurant en Coulisse, which is located in the Walt Disney Studios, which my boyfriend and I may have had everyday for lunch when we visited in April… It is basically expensive McDonald’s but there is just something about it which makes it soooo yummy.
6. What’s your favourite shop?
I can’t say I have one favourite shop, I definitely have a few. My first would be the Boardwalk Candy Palace which is on Main Street U.S.A in the Disneyland Park, simply because they do the most AMAZING candy floss, it is literally twice the size of my head, and getting that is one of the highlights of my trips to Disneyland Paris. As well as the fact I have a huge sweet tooth, so anything of the sweet kind just calls my name! Of course another favourite is World Of Disney in the Disney Village because they do so much Disney merchandise, they have everything you’re looking for! Lastly, the Walt Disney Studios Store, because there are often some hidden gems in there that you don’t actually find in the World of Disney.
7. What’s your favourite season or event?
I have visited Disneyland Paris for every season and event! It’s definitely a tie between Swing into Spring and of course Christmas! Swing into Spring is just lovely because of the colourful decorations and the colourful outfits the characters wear, as well as the fact my birthday is in during the Swing into Spring season ha ha. Then Christmas is of course Christmas! Who wouldn’t love Christmas at Disneyland Paris?! Seeing the park all decorated for Christmas really does make me so happy and I wish I could be there every year for the Christmas season.
8. Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios?
Difficult! I love them both equally for different reasons! Disneyland Park of course because of the nostalgia and happiness it brings me being in there. However, I definitely prefer the big rides in the Walt Disney Studios.
9. What’s your favourite ride in each park?
In the Walt Disney Studios, it’s a tie between Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster will always have a special place in my heart because it was one of the first roller coasters I went on when I was younger, but The Tower of Terror I just love! I love the feeling of the drop! Then in the Disneyland Park, I think I would have to say Big Thunder Mountain. I used to drag my dad on with me over and over and over again when I was younger, and it still excites me when I go on it! Although of course, I love a bit of Space Mountain, as that was the first ever roller coaster I went on.
10. What’s your favourite land in the Disneyland Park?
I know it technically isn’t a land in the Disneyland Park, but my favourite place would have to be Main Street U.S.A, I do just really love it there, popping in the shops and staring at the castle. However, if I have to choose a land it would definitely be Fantasyland… I always wished I lived there and it’s full of the princesses!
11. What’s your favourite character meet?
As I have been going to Disneyland Paris since I was 18 months old, I can’t remember every encounter I’ve had with characters, so I can’t really decide which is my favourite. Although, I know I used to adore Goofy! As well as Mickey, Minnie and Pluto. Also, I’m not sure why but I always too a disliking to Donald Duck.. sorry Donald, we’re friends now!
12. What’s your best character meet and greet experience?
Again, like I said above I can’t remember every meet and greet experience I’ve had over the years. However, when I went a few years ago, I think it was for my 15th birthday, my niece and I (she’s 11 days older than me, so we were celebrating her birthday too) had such a cute meet and greet with Tigger, he was bouncing all over the place, and was just having so much fun with us.
I cannot say I have a happiest or best memory at Disneyland Paris because every time has been special and magical in it’s own way, I couldn’t possibly pick just one!
However, I did really really enjoy my trip this year with my boyfriend for my 18th birthday. That was definitely a very special trip and one that I will keep with me and remember forever.
It was slightly weird as it was the first time I’d visited without my mum and dad being with me, but it made me so happy sharing my 18th Birthday with my boyfriend in the most magical place in the world!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my Disneyland Paris experience, let me know if you do this tag as I’d love to read other people’s experiences!
