Disneyland Paris 2014 // Main Street USA


On a scale of 1 to Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, how much do you want to skip down that road and click your heels in the air ala Burt of Mary Poppins during 'Steppin' Time'? Exactly.
It's a completely idealic and magical view and even better seeing as it was early morning and had been raining! 

So this post brings us to the close of my photo documenting, Disneyland Paris 2014 series and to say it's a shame is an understatement. It's one thing to return home from a place like that, experiencing the holiday blues, but it has kept me happy and enjoying the memories week to week editing these photos to share with you all. Now the blues are back with a vengeance
I look to others who seem to have an ever replenishing money tree growing in their garden, booking countless trips to Disney resorts year after year (sometimes multiple trips in one year) and I wish it were me. Then I stop to think and realize that the longer I'm away, the more I miss everything about it and in turn the more I appreciate it when I return. I may not be lucky enough to not work and still get to travel the world, but I will work hard to get back there, my camera in tow and show you all every detail when I get there.

So without further ado...welcome to Main Street USA.


Main Street U.S.A, in the Paris park, is the 1920's themed 'passage' you travel through to get to each land, full of restaurants, refreshment stands, boutiques and shops and home to the route of parades as well as old fashioned vehicles and horse drawn carriages (which, I'm sure you'll of guessed are not my favorite 'attraction'.)
I am a big fan of all things old fashioned, so to say and so mixing my favorite architectural eras with Disney is like heaven. The best welcome to the park ever for me.
As you can see, with it being Halloween, everything was decked out for the season, well and truly! There were ghosts dotted everywhere, sunflowers galore and lots of those super talented musicians that I mentioned in this post.

October has got to be one of the best times to visit the park not only for atmosphere and decor but for the weather, as we got to experience the sunrise on the castle, rainfall emptying the park, warm air for riding high into the air on Dumbo and chilly evenings to wrap up and watch the fireworks. Now tell me the American parks are better!



I don't think there is much more to say after the above image. So I'll thank you for following my Disneyland journey and hope that you enjoyed it. It's only taken me approximately 10 weeks to edit these photos and post them weekly without overloading you all but it's all over and done with now. I'm going to miss putting these posts together. However, I do have some great ideas to keep the Disney magic alive....

Oh and of course I still have my Disneyland Haul to come too ;)

    1. I'd love to see the Main Street at the other parks to see how it compares. If I ever go to the US, I'll remember that restaurant and give it a shot!

  5. Main Street is definitely my favourite bit of all the Disney parks. It's the first and last thing you see and the atmosphere is always wonderful whether you are coming or going. I love the use of colour in the first picture it's gorgeous!

  6. Beautiful pictures Danielle, especially the one of the castle at sunset. I feel like I'm there again. There's something so magical about Disneyland; it doesn't matter whether you're 4 or 104, it's so much fun!

    1. Thanks so much! I took way too many photos of the castle, but they were all different with things like sunset etc. haha
      And you're not wrong. While we were there we actually say a day trip of elderly people, all in wheelchairs, thoroughly enjoying themselves - it was so lovely to see.
