Disneyland Paris Halloween | ELLETRAVELS


Hello, yes, it's me... after a long break I thought that Disney would be the perfect time to put an end to this long overdue 'break' as I shall from now on shall be called. At some time, I will get around to a what I have been up to post, but I won't lie to you all it mainly involves me working my bum off and trying to be an active member to the 9 till 5 society.

So if you follow me on social media, if you don't the links to my pages are at the side of this post, then you'll know all about my recent trip to Disneyland Paris.

I've been thinking all week long, how do I write about this trip. Do I recommend places to stay? Do I talk about the party and where to go? But, I think I'm just going to talk about the amazing time I got to spend with my family and go into the 'where's best' in a later post.

Our whole trip was five days of well overdue family time. The first day involved travelling, which wasn't too bad, having both my sister and mother petrified of flying stuck on either side of me was a rather enjoyable giggle by the end of the takeoff and landing. But after an hour-long flight and 45-minute drive, we were at our resort, the pink palace itself the Disneyland Hotel.

Celebrating my own 21st, my mum's 50th and my younger sister 18th all being this year. My mum had splashed the cash well and truly with a stay in this amazing hotel her and my dad had their Honeymoon 24 years ago (I think that's how long it's been). We checked in and made our way down the big hallway facing the park to our room, kindly upgraded to a Peter Pan-esk room, with big bay window and plenty of the luxurious room as space to chill in before we headed into the park, hot chocolates in hand to watch the fireworks. Now, I don't know about anyone else, but the fireworks instantly reduce me to tears, the lights and music sends me into a trance and being the cold brisk night it was, five minutes following the display had finished myself and Romy had the park to sit and have a mini photoshoot down Main Street USA.

I won't bore you with a day-by-day itinerary of what we did, but our main reason for the visit had the be the Mickey Mouse Halloween Party, something I've wanted to do since I was a wee lassie. I will say this as my only default to the night, it's not all about the children, its dark, packed and not everyone was sober. However, me, my mum and my sister were living for the whole experience! We had a dance party with Buzz Lightyear, Got to ride Big Thunder Mountain after midnight, Eat sweet treats and enjoy the atmosphere - oh and a DJ set from Don Diablo! Who expected that?

I will eventually get around to writing up some separate segments about our adventure which could help you with booking yours. Until then, enjoy these images which we took. I had the best rest with my wonderful family, and honestly as I'm sat here right now having Dan force me to give him a back massage I SERIOUSLY wish I was back in the Magic Kingdom.

Until next time Disney x
