Disneyland Paris on arrival day
Arriving at Disneyland Paris late in the evening is never a good idea. Especially for a die-hard Disney fan.
We left the house after hubby walked in at 2 pm which meant we still had 5 hours to drive before arriving to our amazing Disney long weekend. We pulled in around 9 pm-ish. It was late, we were tired, and most of the rides were shutting down.
The first thing we did was get a crash-course in Disney layout and function; nothing like Disney World. Disneyland Paris is divided into two parks, Disneyland Parks – which is essentially the Magic Kingdom – and Walt Disney Studios – same as Hollywood studios (or MGM studios, depended on when you last visited Disney World).
3 days in Disneyland Paris
We decided our first stop was going to be Disney Village – downtown Disney, for a much deserved dinner. The Rainforest Cafe was fairly empty and munchkin enjoys rainforest animals. The food was great and the service was amazing. They served munchkin his burger and fries right away, not making him wait until my steak was ready. After dinner, we looked at a few of the shops. Munchkin wanted everything and nothing at the same time, so we didn’t stay long. We figured it would be easier to buy him something when he wasn’t so sleepy and could actually make up his mind.
