Laundry or an update..... Good choice in the update!

The parade looks nice. Being that it is different would have defiantly made it a must see for me.

I agree with you, rude families who shove 10 people In front if you is bad. I've let little ones share out spot but just one or two that fit and went crazy!

The Toy Story area is so cool! I line how they've made it a whole area. I bet it very popular.

It wasn't laundry I was meant to be doing. I was supposed to be making some sort of radio yoke. I got it finished like 5 minutes before I was meant to be getting a bus to dancing though lol

I don't mind letting them in front if they're shorter than me and don't block my pics. If they shove then no! Also if they have one of those Mickey Balloons no because they get in my way

I think Crushes coaster is the most popular in that park but that whole area was the most crowded area of the park. Although slinky dog's wait time was only 5 mins but I tihnk that's because of how tame it was.

Food, cars and sleeping!

Day 3, part 5:

So when I left you we were wandering around Toy Story Playland. Momma announced she was hungry and wanted to know where we were going for food. I had a look at the map and we headed back up the way we came of course taking pics along the way:


I spied McQueen... he was in the corner of the Cars ride:

On the way in through Studio 1 of Walt Disney Studios there are shops and restaurants. We went back in there for food. Can't tell you the name of the place because it's not on the receipt lol. I took more pics on the way in:

Momma got a chicken burger meal it came in a Mickey Mouse box:

Looks messy. She said it was nice though:

I got a 20th Anniversary Meal to try it. It cost 14.99 and you got a burger with some funky sauce on it that had 20th anniversary burnt into the bun, there was fries, a drink and a 20th anniversary weird dessert thing. It wasn't quite a cookie, wasn't quite a brownie. Overall I didn't like it and thought it was a waste of money but pictures:




We were in no real rush to go anywhere so we sat for a while. Momma was falling asleep at this point. I just enjoyed taking pics of whatever was around:

Then suddenly they announced the time of the next show would be moved forward half an hour and it would be the last showing of the day. It was Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular we wanted to go so we headed off towards a pretty full stadium of course taking pics along the way:

We ended up in the top of the seating but got quite a nice view from up there!

I spy the castle:

See the building with the green pointy roof to the left of the pic that's actually one of the resort hotels the New York hotel. The balloon rises over lake Disney in the Disney Village... that's how close everything is at Disneyland Paris:


The show started and it was similar but not as exciting as the one in DHS. Momma fell asleep. McQueen was there but it was just lacking some umph!



It ended with a big fire explosion so I woke Momma up and we headed back towards the exit.

Along the way I was looking at the hat and there seemed to be a CM guarding the entrance so I decided to go over and ask her what it was because it wasn't quite clear on the map. She said it was a show about cartoons so Momma and I decided to go since we now had about three hours to kill. It was called The Art of Disney Animation it was as the CM had said a load of cartoon movies mixed together and then in the second half Mushu and a CM were talking about characters that had been left out of the movies. It was in French but there were headsets for other languages. Like any good show it emptied into a shop as well. We had been in the shop earlier in the day but decided to take some more pics:


I only noticed when I was editing this pic for the update that this is actually broken. Goofy, Pinocchio and Pluto are headless. Do people really have so little respect for even merchandise in a shop like?!

Look up and it was Mickey Mouse in the stars:



Next: Disney Dreams, part 1

That does seem a little pricey for the 20th anniversary meal.

I like how the Hollywood tower looks different. It's pretty cool. And its cool how you can see it from the LMA (French version) show. I'm surprised it wasn't as exciting.

Things are expensive there anyway and then they just charge extra for that because of the stuff with 20th on them and they know people will buy them

I dunno what it was about it. It just seemed to be lacking something. It was lacking the man on fire and the man falling from a building anyway but it just seemed to lack umph or something.

I dunno. It left out alot of what DHS has. There was no speed boats, no man on fire, no man falling from the roof but then in the video at the end where they showed how everything was put together once it was filmed all those things were in the video.

They only have the one cars ride. The rest is Toy Story mostly except for Crushes Coaster.

Great update. I'm sorry your meal was a let down, but hey, at least you tried it. No regrets about missing out on that special 20th anniversary deal.

I have to say I love seeing the pictures and comparing to DHS. I really had no idea that they had a similar themed park there, and it really is fascinating to see the similarities and differences between the 2.

I know I totally only tried it because it was the 20th Anniversary, other than that I would have been looking at the kids menu because it's cheaper

It is really cool to compare the parks. I like finding the new things as well and then thinking how they would fit in WDW.
