On with the journey....to Disneyland


So it was a very early rise the day we set out for EURO DISNEY,PARIS.How exciting ! It was board a bus with all 5 dragging the luggage.Travel the underground in peak hour,to then climb aboard the very comfy Euro Star. Bit like a plane, except its a train.How lovely it was to watch the very green countryside go by.

Disneyland was amazing.So must to see and do( of course a pic with Mick Mouse is a must) The grounds are immaculate and on arrival walked into a street parade with all the characters.The park had a Halloween theme so there were pumpkins everywhere.We saw such alot that first afternoon,and due to a slight drizzle of rain saw us walking onto rides, no queuing.This had my husband boarding INDIANA JONES roller coaster,mumbling 'this isn't right,I haven't had time to think this over'.Closed eyes and white knuckled he rode it out,brave soul.It was THE best roller coaster ride Ive ever been on.Bring it on !

How lucky was my girlie to have her 14Th birthday there.At lunch 6 waiters singing happy birthday brought out her birthday cake.Her face was a picture as she scanned the room to see who was getting the cake, realizing they were heading her way.Excellent surprise.She shared half her cake with some french children who had come over to have a look.
Dinner at the wild west show finished her day with us whooping and hollering with Buffalo Bill, cowboys,Indians,buffalo and Annie Oakley.What a great day!



Above is a shot I took of the haunted mansion.The sun behind the house gave it a spooky look.Of course I meant to do this !

So much detail everywhere you look.Three days there just wasn't enough to see all three parks.My favourite was movie world where I saw the best demo of stunt driving ever.

What wonderful memories we all came away with and a grand time was had by all.
Next stop PARIS. wee-wee
