Georgia – February 2022 Trip Report Hi guys & welcome to my February 2022 trip report. We just got back late last night from our trip to Disney! This was our first time flying out somewhere by ourselves so thought I would share our experience to help anyone else out and give you views from a first timer! We booked a Disneyland Paris package & stayed at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne. We flew from Manchester and got to the airport an hour before we were advised to and I’m glad we did!! All flights going from Manchester were in the same check in queue so it made it a very manic experience. I would personally get there a bit earlier than advised as you can never be too prepared. They only briefly checked our Covid tests and sworn statements but I’m glad that we had them in case needed. We used Disney’s Magical Shuttle bus transfers and they were very easy to use and inexpensive, costing €23 per adult & €10 per child each way. We had to wait around for the 2:30pm bus as our flight was delayed but we just grabbed a McDonalds in the airport whilst we waited so it really wasn’t an issue. We stayed at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne and it was great! The staff were so lovely and our room was very nice. There were meet and greets with Woody and Jessie from Toy Story every morning and the shuttle bus took less than 5 mins to get to the park. We went to the Red Garter Saloon at the hotel twice and had some delicious cocktails at great prices. We would definitely recommend stopping by for a “Glowtini”. Time to hit the parks! We have to say that the parks themselves weren’t that busy. Queue times just depended on what ride really. Bigger rides such as Big Thunder Mountain usually ranged from 20-40 mins whilst smaller rides were about 5-15 mins. We had some great snacks around the park and I definitely recommend the mango whip and mickey waffle! The parade was also great so definitely watch that at least once. A Day Out in Paris We also decided to head into Paris for a day and it was super easy on the train directly from Disney train station. It cost €7 for a one way ticket and we got off at Chatelet-Les-Halles and walked to the Eiffel Tower. We didn’t realise how far away it was so I would recommend getting the bus or metro which was only €2! Dining at Disneyland Paris We thought the food throughout the parks & hotel which we tried was very good. I’m quite a picky eater depending on the foods but I never struggled to find something I enjoyed. On one of the nights we just caught a quick bite from Earl of Sandwich and took it back to our room. Another night we went to the Rainforest café in Disney Village. You can’t book this restaurant so it’s just a matter of a small queue or be given a time to come back & be seated. It’s amazingly decorated and the food was gorgeous. I 100% recommend going if you haven’t before. I had the Rasta pasta which gives huge portion and was so so tasty. I couldn’t finish it all so my boyfriend had some and he loved it too lol. On the last night we used the Hotel Cheyenne buffet and I personally believed it was great value for money. As mentioned before, I’m quite a picky eater but at Chuck Wagon Cafe I found food that I liked and was super full afterwards! Travelling Home Travelling home was so much easier than on the way here. The airport is huge and super modern but it’s a great place to shop and grab some food before the flight home. It was really easy using check in and security. Airport staff checked our passenger locator form and Covid Passport and of course our normal passport at different stages. I have to say that everyone at the airport was super friendly! We used Randox for our covid tests which we found easy to use. The results came on the app within minutes. We didn’t receive an email but you can download the results as a PDF which we found really easy and useful. I think I’ve just about covered everything! Feel free to ask any questions on my post on the DLPtips Facebook page! Hope everyone has as great a trip as i did!

Magic Over Disneyland Paris to return in 2022 Following the successful launch in January 2020 of the Magic Over Lake Disney event, it is being reported that this special event is returning for January 2022. The events name is having a slight name change and will now be called Magic Over Disneyland Paris. The special night-time spectaculars will take place on the evenings of January 14th, 17th & 19th 2022. Although the exact details of the event are not yet confirmed, we can be sure that guests will be in for a real treat on these special nights. At the 2020 event guests staying in the lakeside view rooms at either Newport Bay Hotel or the newly refurbished Hotel New York : Art of Marvel had prime viewing from their hotel rooms! This time however it is reported to be staged at Walt Disney Studios. The theming around the previous Magic Over Lake Disney event in 2020 was based around the hit Disney franchise Frozen. Following the incredible success of the first Frozen movie, many children fell in love with their favourite new characters including Elsa, Ana and Olaf! Will Disneyland Paris stick with this theme or will they delight us with an all new show? With the show being at Walt Disney Studios, perhaps we will see a Marvel theme? We have to await further details! For those thinking of travelling during this time you really should check out Disneyland Paris incredible offers for January which we detailed in our “Give the Gift of Disneyland Paris” article some weeks ago. Here’s what we can expect following the last event and hopefully there will be even more added to this seasons event. 2 floating LED screens of 12m x 6m 3 colour lasers 6 water fountains 8m high, capable of launching fireballs 54 Automated moving lights 1 seven-way multijet fountain 8 Flame generators 100 kg of powder for pyrotechnic effects by Show If you are attending on these dates we would love to hear your thoughts and share your experience on our DLPtips Facebook group.
Halloween Trip Report 2021 – Andrea I have just returned from a 4 night break in Disneyland Paris with my daughter and would like to share our trip report with you all. I was a bit worried at first after reading a few negative hotel reviews but I am pleased to say we had such a fantastic stay at Newport Bay Hotel. Check in was smooth and the Newport Bay staff were very friendly. Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions we had to show our vaccination QR codes daily. You then get a wrist band, which was a different colour each day, so staff know you have a health pass. It was so easy and we did that before going for breakfast. It was quick and straightforward. The hotel room was a great size with 2 double beds, plenty of towels and an added bonus of a kettle with tea, coffee and sugar. The “mousekeeping” maid came in daily to make the beds and a general clean. Breakfast was plentiful with a good choice of cooked breakfast or a continental selection. It’s a good start to the Disney day and we always went away satisfied. Top Tips My top tips would be download the Disneyland Paris official mobile app which gives you maps of the parks, wait times for all the attractions and where they are. You can also check restaurants and other amenities too. You get good wifi in the parks so best to make use of it! Another top tip we would give is to try to book restaurants before you arrive as they get filled up quickly, especially during busy times such as Halloween. We had some nice meals and really enjoyed Billy Bob’s restaurant in Disney Village. They serve an “all-you-can-eat” buffet for around €36.00 and they have a delicious selection of Tex-Mex to choose from. We also managed to eat at Cowboy Cookout BBQ on the night of the Halloween Party. We didn’t have a reservation but managed to get a walk-in table at about 10pm. The cost was about €17.00 for a selection of ribs, chicken, sausages and chips. Great value which included a drink and dessert. We would also recommend Earl of sandwich, also in Disney Village if you are looking for a good value light meal. We enjoyed all the rides while we were in Disneyland Paris with our highlights being Ratatouille, It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean and Phantom Manor. All in all we both had a fantastic trip, especially with the Halloween party on October 31st itself. This was our 3rd time visiting Disneyland Paris and we had such a fabulous time yet again. We are already looking forward to going back!
Family Halloween Trip Report 2021 Travelled to France on the 17th of October which meant the park was already decorated for Halloween. We stayed at the newly refurbished Hotel New York : Art of Marvel. Amazing décor, not only inside the hotel, but also in the bedrooms and carried on outside to the gardens. There’s a great chance to meet a superhero in the Hotel… we met Spiderman! Well worth booking if you have a little one who has a superhero who they like. We were in Disneyland Paris for 4 nights and loved how close our hotel was to the parks. It was well within easy walking distance. Day 1 On our arrival day we decided to head to the Disneyland Park. Most of the Disney village shops open at 5pm so we headed straight to the park itself. The Disneyland Paris Official App proved to be a real help. We could follow the park map, see wait times for attractions and then plan which rides we wanted to go on, or should I say, what our 5 year old grandson wanted to go on!! His favourites were Buzz Lightyear Laser blast, Mad Hatters Teacups, Dumbo The Flying Elephant and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. The waiting times were pretty accurate. Another piece of advice which will make your trip more comfortable and enjoyable is to wear comfy shoes as you will walk miles during your stay as there is so much to enjoy throughout the resort. We ate at The Plaza Gardens restaurant on our first day which is a buffet restaurant. There is a lot of choice so you will find something for everyone on the menu. We recommend eating here with the highlight being the desserts. Oh my! Divine! Day 2 Day 2 gave us the chance to visit the Walt Disney Studios Park. Our highlight for the Studios park were the Cars rides, which we all loved, especially the Cars : Road Trip attraction with its secret event in the middle of the ride. Annette’s Diner was our main port of call for tea in the evening. This restaurant is an American 50’s diner style with a waiter on roller-skates and typical diner food such as burgers, hot dogs and sundaes. We enjoyed an amazing cheesecake for dessert. Day 3 On our 3rd day we headed back into the main Disneyland Park. We decided to visit Mickey’s Philharmagic, which is a 4d experience tucked away behind Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain. It was lovely to see all the little ones trying to catch 3d things coming towards them. We then explored Frontierland, which had some great Halloween decorations including from the movie Coco. We took a ride on Thunder Mesa Riverboats to give our weary feet a rest. Our evening was spent at Chuck Wagon Cafe restaurant in the Hotel Cheyenne. The restaurant décor was like being in the wild west with tables set under the backs of wagon canopies. Great BBQ style platters and again, amazing desserts! Day 4 Our last day was a chance to repeat our grandson’s really favourite attractions including Lancelot’s Carousel, Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups, Cars rides and more. That left us some time for souvenir shopping in Disney Village and our last night’s meal in The Steakhouse. An amazing wood panelled interior adorned with atmospheric old photos and the feeling that you really have stepped back in time once inside. I can highly recommend the steak which was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed every minute of our holiday and I hope you enjoyed our family Halloween trip report 2021. We are looking forward to returning soon! Until then I will see you on the DLPtips Facebook Group!
