We’re back from Disneyland Paris! Taking two toddlers to Disneyland is quite the undertaking, but we all survived!
We took an overnight Stena Line ferry from Ireland to France, and the boys did amazing sleeping in the bottom bunks! I was a bit worried about them falling out, but they never got close to it!
The castle is a bit smaller than the one I’m used to (I grew up in Florida and have been to Walt Disney World many times) but it is beautiful! They do a show called Disney Dreams when the park closes where they project images on the castle, and it’s amazing. Malcolm really enjoyed watching it! Nate wanted to leave 3/4 of the way through!
The boys loved riding Dumbo and the Orbitron–the rides that go around in a circle, and you can control it going up and down. We got rained on a few times during our visit, and only got rained out one morning.
Walt Disney Studios has a Cars themed ride–if you know my boys, they LOVE Cars. It was nice to let them “meet” Lightning McQueen, Mater, Luigi and Guido. They had a ton of fun pointing out the things in the line–a Piston Cup, and posters of Doc, Sarge and Fillmore to name a few.
The boys did a great time walking around, and we used our single strollers for taking them from land to land.
Thankfully there were a few rides where we could all ride together, like Slinky Dog Zig Zag Spin.
Nate apparently wanted to ride with me on the Flying Carpet ride. I was sitting out with Malcolm, because he didn’t want to ride.
I bought some glow sticks from home to entertain the boys while we waited for Disney Dreams to begin. Much more affordable than buying the glow stuff from the park!
By the last day, the boys were exhausted and ready to go home. We had a great time though!
Now that we’re home, I better get cracking on our Halloween costumes! I haven’t started yet!!
