Disneyland Paris 2014 // Toon Studio & Toy Story Playland


It feels like forever since I've posted a Disneyland post, though it's only been since last Monday. I had been posting them every Monday and Friday to try and get them all up and out of the way but I still seem to have around 6 (I think) and have had to space them out a bit with other posts that needed to go up!
Sometimes it makes me feel abnormal that I have so many posts ready to go when others constantly go on about lacking motivation, inspiration and then there's those that say 'posting too much diminishing quality'. I hope you still think my posts have substance even if there are 4 of them a week. I put alot of time and hard work into everything I produce and personally think the quantity here doesn't effect the quality - what do you think?

Anyway, tangent diverted, this post is a few photos of the second part of our Walt Disney Studios adventures. THIS made me very happy indeed. Opening later in the same year of my previous (2010) visit I never got to explore the Toy Story Playland until now and I'll tell you it wasn't disappointing!






As you can probably work out there are rides based on different Toy Story toys like RC Racer, Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin and Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop. I was so excited to accidentally stumbled into what seems like 'Andy's Bedroom' after our first go on the Ratatouille ride, just aimlessly walking to where ever chattering away about what we'd just experienced. (Have a peek at what I thought of the brand new this year Ratatouille ride here). I'd totally forgotten about this addition to the parks so was very happy to explore and discover awesome touches like the 'Pixar Ball', even if the only ride we got to do was the Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin. It itself was pretty cool, though probably meant for the younger ones - that's my style!
My Mam has a fear of heights and so there were a few rides she couldn't do and I didn't want to do by myself haha. Fingers crossed I can get a new job soon and go again for a short trip next year to experience the ones I missed ;) 







To end my little double poster of the Walt Disney Studios Park is just a quick mention of Toon Studio. So okay, I admit, I failed again! Crush's Coaster was one of the main things I wanted to do from my Ride Hitlist and ended up being yet another I didn't do! We were actually in the queue for a while until we reached a sign that warned off people with back issues etc, etc so we bowed out then to save my Mam any discomfort. Afterwards we found a couple rides that we had already done no bother with the same warnings, so we could of probably chanced it. Oh well!  
What made up for it was surprisingly the Cars Race Rally! Something I'd never bothered to try before and a ride that we only did because of an non existent queue due to the rain. It was so much fun!! We did it twice :) 
This is also where we met Woody and heard the most brilliant story from a cast member. As a little boy questioned why Woody was so big the cast member proceed to say, 'Well we had to sprinkle Woody and Buzz with a little fairy dust to make them grow, 'cause otherwise we'd hardly see them in your photos!' The kids were awe struck...as was I to be honest and that is what sets apart the Disney staff! <3

Until next time...

    1. The studios park is what I'm trying to use to convince Jake to go to Disney! haha It's alot better and more fun for those who aren't total Disney fans - a little more 'grown up'!

  2. I love seeing all your photos. It's making me wish my sis and I had already planned our trip. We've been meaning to go for SO long. Though we need to find extra people to go with so she has someone to go on rides with and I have someone to stay with since I can't go on them. I was always worried that would leave me bored, but looks like there's plenty of other stuff to keep me entertained. :)

    Also, I don't think your quantity is diminishing your quality. Like you said, that only happens if the quantity means you spend less effort. I think it's different for each person. :)

    1. Oh I'll come!! haha There are actually alot of rides that are wheelchair accessible too and the staff are amazingly helpful! There would most certainly be plenty for you to do aswell and if you get the Eurostar it stops right at the entrance to Disneyland, the hotels are a 5-15min walk depending where you stay and how fast you go and free shuttle buses to the hotels/park for anyone who doesn't want to do the walk. You so need to go!! haha

      And thank you! I'm glad you agree :D

  3. Ah looks like you had lots of fun! I didn't like the Paris disney as much as the ones in the US, but it may have been because the weather was miserable and I was used to the ones in the searing heat! Crushs coaster was terrifying, I thought it was going to be fun but god it scared me!! x

    1. Aw no!! Everyone always says that but I love Paris! Obviously I'd like to go to both in the US eventually but I don't like flying and have no real desire to go there right now. We had one day of rain but it was fab as the park went super quiet that day! haha

  4. It does look like a lot of fun! I also think your posts are as good as ever! No need to worry there. I know what you mean about people saying they don't have ideas/motivation... I don't really understand it too much. I have ideas and motivation, what I lack is time. By the time I get in during the week it's around 7pm and then we eat and tidy up. It's 10pm in no time and I'm certainly not getting up extra early to blog haha. I'm already up at 6:30. Weekends are blogging days... but if you do something, then boom, time has gone again haha.

  5. This part is so cool! I love Rex he's so cute! It looks like Paris has gotten a lot better since I last went so may have to make a return trip sometime! I'd love to go on Crush's coaster because they don't have one in Florida
