Disneyland Paris 2016 // Day 2, Part 1


Looking back, I think day 2 of our trip was my favorite day. There was so much good despite two very, very bad things...that you will find out futher on in this post haha. To me the best days at Disneyland are jam packed with as much as you can fit in as possible, an early start, a variety of activites and being there until the end!
Today was our first full day and we got up, had breakfast in Beaver Creek then headed out to meet Kerri and Kris to head over to the Disneyland Park for EMH. As we got in I spotted Donald! Seeing as our first day had no character meets at all I was itching to say Hi to some of my buddies so we queued, taking photos of the square as the stunning sun rose and got some nice snaps with The Duck in his snazzy Xmas outfit.
After that we had a quick peek in a couple stores at this end of Main Street before heading over to the Walt Disney Studios Park as it opened.


The Les L├ęgendes d'Hollywood draws me in whenever I pass and so we spent a little time shopping in there before heading over to queue for Crush's Coaster. This, for me (I know I'm in the minority here), is the worst ride ever. I hated it. Mam and I also wasted our time queueing for it in 2014 too but left when we saw the warnings about back problems. However, we'd decided 'what the hey' this year and oh how we regreted that lol.
With considerably sore throats and wobbly legs, it was off to some better rides lol - Les Tapis Volants (Flying Carpets Over Agrabah) and Cars Quatre Roues Rallye (Cars Race Rally) which always makes me laugh sooo much. We timed it so that as we got off Cars it would be time to wait for Mickey and the Magician and while in the 'holding pen' ate our bread dinner. This was obviously my first time seeing the show and as much as I'll always miss Animagique, it really was beautiful. I was blown away at the Lion King bit after having seen the stage show the year before and shed plenty tears at that.
As we had something booked for the afternoon there was time for one more ride. Something I'd planned to try since my visit in 2010, the Tower of Terror, and as you'll probably guess from my face in the photo, it was the other worst moment of the day haha. I detested it and have no idea how people find that fun...but I guess I can at least say we did it eh?

I'm gonna leave this part here as we then walked through Studio 1 to our appointment, stopping only to enjoy the band as I always do!

    1. haha Really?! I thought it wouldn't be too bad as I LOVE heights and stuff but you don't even really notice that, it's just the drop feeling. It does it over and over and I was just over it! lol
      I think you should go at the start of May :)

  3. Ooh I'm not usually one for heights (though it's something I'm working on) but Tower of Terror looks awesome! I love that shot of all of you with Donald too, so cute! Love the sign from Finding Nemo too with the protect the ocean sign, so lovely to see things like that at the parks encouraging environmentalism! Lovely photos. - Tasha
