As someone who’s never really done collaborations with other bloggers on their blog before, this month I have a grand total of TWO! Can you believe it? I’ve really enjoyed these posts and I’d love to collaborate with more bloggers in the future. So today’s post, is a little collab with one of the sweetest bloggers on the entire planet. If you love anything Disney, the she’s the person to go to for all the amazing Disney content. I mean, obviously the only person I could be talking about here is Lize in Disneyland isn’t it?! Obviously our collab had to be Disney related and having both been to Disneyland Paris, today we’re both posting about our ideal day at Disneyland Paris. And it’s giving me all the nostalgia and all the feels. As soon as you’re done here, do head over to her blog and check out her post! Anyway, let’s head to Disneyland!
So obviously, I’m going to be waking up in the Disneyland Hotel. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris 3 times and each time I’ve stayed in Santa Fé – which is a great hotel and definitely perfect for if you’re on a budget but staying in the Disneyland Hotel would be a dream. Just a standard room will do, I’m not planning on spending much time in it!
After getting ready for the day, I’d head to Main Street to have a Disney character breakfast at the Plaza Gardens Restaurant!
I’d start with the Disneyland Park and head straight for Peter Pan’s Flight as my first ride of the day. Each and every time I’ve visited, this has always been my first ride so I’d like to keep to that tradition!
After Peter Pan’s flight, I’d stay in Fantasyland for the morning and do some of the cute little attractions that I enjoy like Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups and the Carousel.
11:15: Meet and greet with Winnie the Pooh and friends!
I love meeting Pooh and the gang at Disneyland, so I’d definitely carve out time in my day to ensure I can meet them and take a few pics! My favourite is Tigger but unfortunately I haven’t managed to get a photo with him yet! So maybe in this fantasy visit I can.
Assuming the character meet takes a little while, I’m guessing by the time it’s finished it’ll be time for lunch! I’ve not tried an awful lot of restaurants etc at Disneyland Paris because I’ve always taken loads of my own food into the park (on a budget yo) but if money was no object, I’d head into Pizzeria Bella Notte for a quick pizza to fill me up!
After lunch, I’d head to Frontierland which is arguably, my favourite land! I’d start with the Riverboat and have a relaxing cruise around the lake and take some photos whilst my lunch goes down before heading to my favourite ride of them all…
Big Thunder Mountain
I absolutely love Big Thunder Mountain, it’s definitely my favourite ride in the whole of Disneyland. It’s just so much fun, I love the theme and flying through the tunnel.
Walt Disney Studios Park
Now because this is only one day, I’ve had to cut out quite a lot of what I would want to do to fit in my absolute favorites so unfortunately, I’d have to skip out Adventureland and Discoveryland (sorry Space Mountain!) and head on over to the Walt Disney Studios to go on…
Another one of my absolute favourite rides at Disneyland Paris, I just think Crushes Coaster is SO much fun so I’d always make time for that!
After Crushes Coaster I’d probably head to the Toy Story land (what’s it’s official name?!) and have some fun on the rides in there before stopping for dinner. The race car ride was still being built last time I was there so I’d love to have a go on that!
I have absolutely no idea what the parade timetable is like at Disneyland Paris at the moment but watching the parade is always one of my favourite parts of the day! So after the fun of the Walt Disney Studios, I’d head back to the Disneyland Park and get a good spot (and maybe an ice cream) and watch the parade!
I’d definitely head to Annette’s Diner for dinner. I’ve been there before and absolutely loved it. I love the 50’s theme and the proper American diner style food. Plus it’s super Instagrammable!
And before heading back to the hotel I’d definitely have a mosey around the shops down Main Street. Although merch can be so expensive at Disneyland Paris, there’s nothing like strolling around the shops, without a care in the world at the end of the day. And maybe bump into a character or two.
I really hope you enjoyed this post! If you’ve been to Disney and enjoy the attractions etc that I’ve mentioned, do let me know! I’d love to hear your favourites and what you’d include in your ideal day at Disneyland Paris!
* Please note, hardcore Disney fans that I haven't been to Disneyland Paris in years, I don't know the current schedule / ride closures and some of the times mentioned may be wrong so don't @ me because quite frankly, I don't give a sh*t because it was fun to write.
