Hey everyone! Hope you are all well. Stef is going to do an update later but isn't sure if she should carry on and do the cruise arrival etc or, the recent Disneyland Paris trip. What do you think?

Oh and thanks for all the well wishes on the new job, everything is going really well and my department has some cool people in it

Have a sandwich at EoS for me! (and maybe an adult drink too )

Enjoy yourselves!

Just one personal question - do you still live at the same address? You know maybe there is mail from a certain friend who is about to visit the DREAM.

Disneyland Paris

Hi Guys

How are you all doing? Weekends going good?

Ours has been good, finally got some snow and its quite thick. Hopefully everything won't come to a standstill tomorrow when everyone goes back to work, but we shall see.

So, shall we get this party started? Will try and blitz our DLRP for you and then we can resume our normal schedule

We had an awesome time in DLRP, it was lovely and quiet. Everything was practically walk on and the weather wasn't as cold as we were expecting it to be. Apparently a week after we went is when it got freezing cold, so we were lucky on that account too

Sunday January 22
We woke up bright and early, got ready and waited for our car to pick us up to take us to St Pancreas. I had made some cookies the night before for the train journey and they turned out quite well, what you think?







We arrived at the station and headed towards the Eurostar bookings office, as I was curious about upgrading our tickets. Spoke to a lovely lady who told me that there were seats available and we upgraded to Standard Premier seats. Originally when we booked our train we just went for the standard seats as the upgrade at the time was ridiculous and we wanted to keep a low budget for this trip. But the call of a larger, quieter carriage was calling me and Dave, bless him, gave in and said we could upgrade

After the ticket office we made a few pitstops to pick up some lunch and snacks for the train. Then we made our way over to Starbucks for my must have peppermint hot chocolate.



Then it was time to head on over to departures. We made it through quickly and headed to our gate.



Apparently there was only one other passenger in our carriage, so we pretty much had it to ourselves. But then a few Eurostar staff decided to settle in, so we weren't completely alone, but as good as







We were served a continental breakfast, which was a croissant, bread, jams etc




Then we sat back and watched the countryside fly by.


I had loaded up my iPad with the latest Pretty Little Liars episode and Revenge, so watched those to pass the time. Anyone else watch these shows? So good!

Before we knew it, we were at Marne le Vallee and carting out cases over to this beauty.



Cntd...

Not sure if you said, but how long is the train ride?

Is that the Disneyland Hotel?! Holy cow, that's gorgeous!

for upgrading and having the coach to yourself (well, almost),

Food looks good and isn't it so convenient the train nearly runs "into" the Disneyland hotel?
Can't wait to hear what kind of view you had and what you did first after you had arrived.

The train ride is about 2hrs30, used to be longer but they came out with the new "faster" trains last year I think.

The Disneyland Hotel is a gorgeous hotel and aptly nicknamed the Pink Palace. Stay tuned as I have another update coming up, just uploading pics

I love that the train gets you literally to the parks

Stay tuned, update coming right up

Hi Stefy and Dave! Looking forward to hearing more about your Disneyland Paris trip ... we went on the Eurostar back in 2005 (when it used to go from Waterloo!) to Paris - not Disneyland though but we had an amazing mini-break

Snow not too bad here now... I'm not looking forward to driving in the morning though... think it'll be icy! lol

...cntd

We arrived at check in and got our room key sorted. A CM had come by on the train earlier to give us our park tickets and give us the opportunity to use the Disney Express to have our bags taken care of. But we thought that would be a waste and a long wait as the hotel is literally right next to the station.

We found our room and took the oblig pictures



























Is a lovely large spacious room and the beds were really comfy, apart from being a bit too small. View wise wasn't the greatest and we didn't take a pic, it overlooked the entrance (but to the side). But all in all we loved the room

Room explored, we made our way out to Disneyland Park.







We decided to hop on to the Disneyland Railroad as the line was short and we figured a round trip around the park would be cool.





Big Thunder Mesa


Space Mountain II




Train journey over, we started back on Main Street and made our way down slowly, taking pics. We decided that we would not worry about the rides and just explore the park taking pictures. Nice and relaxed
