10-6-08 Disneyland Paris, by Jodi
Up early, get ready, and go down to Rue Cler to buy patisseries and milk, mmmmm. 3 metro changes to the RER A train and almost an hour later, we are at Disneyland gates right at opening time of 10am.
We decide to go into the Walt Disney Studios Park first since we had never been. We ride Tower of Terror, Rock n’ Roller Coaster, see Animagic puppet show, and then walk around and take photos. There is really nothing else to do there that we haven’t done elsewhere, it is such a small park. We have lunch in the food court on their Main Street type movie studio, just burgers and fries but decent.
We walk over to Disneyland, I notice a family standing front of the entrance sign with Mom taking the picture. I motion to let me take it of all of them, so Mom was happy. Sounded like they were German, but they wanted to return the favor for us, so we finally have a photo at the entrance.
We enter the park, instantly admiring the European architecture. The Halloween decorations are already out with the same pumpkin men painting the park orange. They have had this same theme since our first visit in Oct. 2001. We still end up taking a few of us with them, we couldn’t resist since they are in funny positions.
We ride just about everything we want the lines weren’t too bad. Walked the whole park and took the train completely around the park.
We were actually done seeing everything a little after 6pm, so we decided to get back on the Paris train before everyone in the park did at 7pm when they closed. We ended up walking back into the Rue Cler and having dinner at Café du Marche, even though it is now after 7pm. I ordered Roast chicken with carrot sauce and herbs, potatoes, carrots and salad – pretty good.
Back to hotel bushed and get to bed so we are ready for our last day of adventure on this trip.
