Disneyland Paris - What I look forward to most!

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Black!
Enjoy the ride as we share with you what we look forward to the most at Disneyland Paris!

If you're a fan of my blog you'll know that Disneyland Paris is my favourite place in the world! I visited Walt Disney World for the first time in October ... and even after being there ... Disneyland Paris is still my favourite! I think a big part of it is nostalgia ... I first visited way back when it opened in 1992 at the age of just 5! So it's a massive part of my childhood :) And it's continued to be a massive part of my life ever since!

What I look forward to when I visit Disneyland Paris is ... everything! Walking through the gardens down to the Disneyland Hotel ... going under the Disneyland Railroad to be met by the sights and sounds and smells of Main Street ... walking round town square to be met by the breath-taking view of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant! And all the attractions! Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Phantom Manor, Peter Pan's Flight, Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Pirates of the Caribbean and Buzz Lightyears Laser Blast are among my favourites! I can hardly contain myself every time I arrive!!

But what I look forward to the most is ... spending time with my family in a place we all love! I'm sure everyone knows what I'm talking about when I say Disneyland Paris offers a sense of escapism. We've been on family vacations elsewhere - but it's just not the same. Disneyland Paris is the only place I know that can make my mum totally forget the stresses of everyday life, make my dad skip down Main Street, make my sisters get on like best friends and not bicker :P and make me cry with happiness :) It really is like an alternate universe ... and I love seeing how happy and relaxed it makes my family :) They mean everything to me, so to have somewhere that can make that happen is Magical :)

I also asked my family what they look forward to the most :) My mum loves Peter Pan's Flight! She would quite happily sit on that attraction all day long lol! My little sister loves the fireworks (so do I!) and the parades :) and my littler sister loves Pirates of the Caribbean and meeting characters! Her favourite is Stitch but she loves meeting all the princess' too :) My dad also loves the fireworks :) We're a total fireworks family! We go to see them most nights when we're there! :D

We love Disney fireworks so much we tired to re-create some Disney Magic on Fireworks night last weekend :) We set off fireworks in our garden with some music playing ... but because the fireworks were so close they drowned out the music! But it was worth a try! :P

Thank you for joining me today! :)

I think that your "home park" is the one you use as your measuring stick. I've never been to DLP, and don't know that I ever will be - but you make it sound very appealing.

Manda said...

Same Deej! I LOVE Space Mountain! LOL Donna! I love it too! :) Thanks for the follow TigerEyes and corabeth, I'll check you out! You should visit Melissa! (Like I don't tell you enough! :P) Hope you can too one day Heidi! :D
