"All The Single Riders" .... **COMPLETED** 10th Feb 2012

Hi everyone

I’ve just returned from a great couple of days at DLP staying at The Disneyland Hotel

I travelled solo on this trip and for those of you that had the misfortune of reading my last DLP trip report you will probably remember that I did the same trip back in February 2011

I hadn’t really intended to visit again this year as I’m off to WDW with DH in May but a 50% discount offer dropped into my inbox on a particularly boring afternoon at work and I just couldn’t resist

For those that haven’t witnessed my ramblings previously here I am, complete with ridiculous head-gear



This trip was my fifth visit to DLP and my second without DH who loves WDW but isn’t quite so keen on DLP

So I hope you can join me in the single rider line for a quick visit to Le Mouse

Oh and I will sign off for now with something to make you smile on a Monday

Travel & Day One

So I was up at stupid o’clock and a bleary eyed (that’s “bleary eyed” not “teary eyed” ) DH drove me to the station

No surprise that the early morning train to Paddington was packed but it’s only a 20 minute journey so it wasn’t too painful

A couple of stops on the tube and I was at St Pancras in no time at all and as is typical for me, I was far too early so I hopped over to King’s Cross to see if I could catch a train to Hogwarts





My next port of call was Le Pain Quotidien for a spot of breakfast and a caffeine fix



Ahh boiled egg and soldiers – takes me back to my youth (a very long time ago!!)

Once I had settled my bill I went for a wander around the station and a look around the shops before heading to check in

Check in was quick and easy but I still had about an hour to kill before the Eurostar was due to leave so I did the sensible and healthy thing by ordering yet another coffee and just so I had some company I was joined by the rather wonderfully named “Ginger Giovanni”



Giovanni’s conversational skills were lacking so I bit his head off (a bit like early mornings with DH some days )

It wasn’t long before I was boarding the train and tucked into a good book and in what seemed like no time at all the train arrived at Marne La Valley

As I was staying at the Disneyland Hotel it was only a short walk from the train and I was standing at the reception desk with Chip ‘n’ Dale fooling around behind me in the lobby soon after

Next Up – Room 1010

Glad to have you reading along, the Mickey Cookies were from the Boardwalk Candy Palace on Main Street and they were divine

there is certainly something to be said about a solo trip once in a while, you can be totally selfish
Some photos of DLH coming right up

Day One - Checking In At DLH

Right two choices for my lunch break today

1) Walk down a rainy and cold Kensington High Street and hand over £5 for a soggy sandwich

OR

2)Post another (not very) gripping instalment of my trip report

Unfortunately for you option number 2 won as I have forgotten my umbrella and have found a tin of soup in my desk drawers

So where was I, ah yes, checking in at the Disneyland Hotel



Disneyland Hotel

I was greeted by a wonderful Cast Member who was super friendly and chatty; it’s always nice to be welcomed so nicely at the end of your journey

He handed me my room key and 6 fast passes, I think I was only supposed to get 3 but I wasn’t complaining.

It turns out that in three days in the parks I only used one; it was so quiet at both parks that there really wasn’t any point in using them

I hadn’t made any advance requests for a specific room location but was delighted that I was so close to the reception, especially as I was travelling alone

My room was on the ground floor which is a first for me, I wondered if I might hear footsteps above me all night but it turned out to be a really quiet room

Here are some pictures for you:



Room 1010



Window View



Patio View - this must be wonderful in the summer



Bed – Taken later that evening (note the chocolates on the bed )



TV & Minibar (in case you really have to get peanuts at 3am)



Bathroom- yeah this is getting dull now isn't it

I pretty much dropped my bag off, popped my passport in the safe and headed straight to DLP as it was closing at 6pm and I wanted to get as much park time as possible
