Jodie August 2022 Trip Report Arrival Day Home after a fab 4 night break. We tagged it on to the end of our camping trip in the Netherlands. We choose to stay in Hotel Campanile and bought 2 single day/single park tickets. We arrived Wed and had a lovely evening walking around Disney Village. We had pizza and chips meals in the café next to the sports bar. Reasonably priced and OK quality. Day one – Walt Disney Studios Thursday we spent the whole day in Disney Studios. We headed straight for Avengers Campus when we entered at 9.30am and onto Web slinger within about 25 mins. Next up for us was flight force and a parent swap (which has worked great for us and is so efficient). Avengers Campus Top tips & highlights * If you want any chance of doing the training you have to be super quick to even get on the virtual queue list. We missed out on this but enjoyed seeing Spiderman leaping around the roof tops & Wakanda Warriors show. * We ate in Stark Factory sharing a pizza and pasta. Better quality than the village pizza, but more expensive. 1 Pizza slice, 1 portion of pasta and 4 drinks costing €43 but was a fair size to share between 2 adults and 2 low appetite children! * Kids loved the Stitch Live! show * Tower of Terror scared my 5 year old, but a trip onto the Cars ride soon helped him forget. He also loved Toy Story area, Slinky Dog being one of the faves for him, he’s 5 years old. * My daughter and I choose to single ride on Crush’s Coaster and then got parent swap for dad. Here they will not issue the parent swap pass unless the other adult is waiting at the exit, all others have just handed them over no question. * Ratatouille was awesome, always love that one. We enjoyed the Frozen show, and got there to be right at the front of the queue. This did not guarantee a decent view as you get moved through several rooms and all shifted about. Nobody cares that you were there waiting and there can be a bit of shoving even with little ones. Good show, however a lot is in French. Although they do kind of relay the story across characters in both French and English. * We spent the late eve in Avengers Campus again and made the most of the shorter queues again by riding both rides several times. There was a moment where we had to be evacuated off of Flight Force! Be warned Web Slinger hurts your arms if ridden too many times 😄 Disneyland Park Top tips and highlights Into Disneyland Park and our little man wanted to do Star Tours so we rushed in the direction of Discoveryland. Whilst there, we realised Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast was only 15 mins wait so we hopped on there first as we know this gets busy. Followed straight onto Star Tours with only a 10 min wait followed by Space Mountain for hubby and 10 year old and Autopia for little me and little man. * Missed out on the Shine Bright parades as we were always quite busy fitting in all the rides we wanted. It’s a Small World is currently closed for refurbishment. * Big Thunder Mountain was next… or so we thought. After getting about 2 trains from front, and queuing about 45 mins the ride closed, we did however get fast passes to return and thoroughly enjoyed it. Probably our favourite attraction of the 2 parks. * Pirates of the Caribbean was a little scary for the 5 year old, but it didn’t make him cry like Tower of Terror! * We grabbed some lunch from Cool Post by the steam boat. They had great chicken nuggets and turkey legs for a fair price and we sat and ate this queueing for the Lion King show. * WOW! probably my absolute highlight. The Lion King show was awesome and well worth the queue. Kids were glued to their seats cheering and whooping along. * Disney parade at 5.30pm was fun. It was the same show as 5 years ago but kids couldn’t really remember so it was magical all the same. * Peter Pan’s Flight was our longest queue of the 2 days, sadly made longer by a ride breakdown, once again JUST before we were due to ride. * we then crammed in some more Fantasyland rides before the lights show at 10.55pm. Autopia said a 5 min wait, but we kind of dibbed out and got put in the lane where they had started off loading the cars before closing and it took a fair while then to get on. If going last thing, they seem to remove the cars on the right hand side of the tracks as you sit into the cars to drive off. *As everyone said the light show was awesome. We loved the 30th celebration drone section, 2nd bit again was pretty much same as 5 years ago but still pretty awesome and kids loved it. **** Best food of the trip – VAPIANO – good price and awesome food. It is situated just outside Disney Village (literally behind the Gaumont cinema) you leave the security check area beside the World of Disney shop and it’s just out there. We all highly rated this and hubby said it was better than Pizza Express. **** Best ride/show of the trip for each of our family : Daddy – Big Thunder Mountain, daughter (10) Flight Force, son (5) Web Slinger/Star Tours, Mummy Lion King/Space Mountain. **** EXTRA TIPS – All vendors take card, however a fair few of them selling from mobile stores often crashed and were cash only, we had a few disappointed moments when ice cream could not be purchased. The queues can get very hot, take a little compact …………read full article
September 2022 Disneyland Paris Family Trip Report Our family consists of myself, my wife and our 2 children who are 14 and 18 years old. Our 18 year old has Autism but absolutely comes out of shell on trips to Disneyland Paris. It’s a beautiful thing to see for us. We stayed in Disneyland Paris for 3 nights and 4 days from September 20th to 24th 2022. It was an amazing family holiday in Disneyland Paris with so many amazing experiences, great food and magical memories. I hope you enjoy our trip report and it helps you and your family make the most of your stay. Travelling to Disneyland Paris We travelled from our home in Scotland to Disneyland Paris with EasyJet flying from Glasgow. Our flights were straightforward and had really good flight times which meant we arrived early on day one and flew home very late on our last day. This allowed us to maximise our Disney park time and really make the most of our family holiday. We landed in Charles de Gaulle airport at around 10am and were picked up swiftly by our private transfer company rstransports.com. It took around 45 minutes by car to Campanile Val de France hotel. The return journey was just as easy. Our choice of Disney hotels As said, we were doing a split stay this time as we really wanted to get the most out of our family holiday to Disneyland Paris. On this trip we had a split stay over 3 different hotels including the Campanile, Disney Sequoia Lodge and finally the stunning Disney Newport Bay Hotel. Campanile Val de France hotel We chose Campanile Val de France hotel as it is just a short 10 minute shuttle (this is free and every 15 minutes) to Disney Village. The Campanile hotel is great value and an excellent base to see the area. The rooms were clean and modern. Our family room had a double bed, single bed and also a set of bunk beds. The breakfast was continental buffet style and we enjoyed our one night here. Disney Sequioa Lodge Hotel Our second night was spent in the Disney Sequoia Lodge hotel which was absolutely beautiful. If you can imagine a woodland retreat with a hint of “Bambi” theming then you are on the right track. The lodges are gorgeous and you would think you were in the middle of a huge forest! Staying here gives you an immediate sense of relaxation after a busy day in the parks. The breakfast buffet was delicious with hot and cold selections including sausages (vegan), bacon, scrambled eggs, Cereals, fresh fruit, cold meats, breads, pancakes and of course Mickey Waffles with syrup! We would highly recommend this hotel if you want something relaxing, warming and close to the parks. Our family loved it! Disney Newport Bay Hotel For our last 2 days we moved to the 4 star Disney Newport Bay Hotel. This is an iconic hotel overlooking Lake Disney and just a short walk to the parks through Disney Village. It has a nice nautical theme and really looks and feels a bit more luxurious than your standard hotel. You could be forsaken for thinking you were on a posh cruise ship! I would recommend getting a lake view room as they are stunning. Our room was well themed and the walk to and from the parks was just a few minutes. Breakfast was tasty and similar to the Sequoia Lodge. You can even book room service breakfast if you want a lie in or just have that luxury experience! The swimming pool is amazing and our family enjoyed a dip in the early evening. Family fun in the Disneyland Paris parks We had 3 full days in the parks. Our son has Autism and can become overwhelmed at times but we applied for a Priority Pass for those with a disability which was very straightforward and really helped us enjoy our time in the parks. We have been to Disneyland Paris on numerous occasions before so know our way around. If it’s your first time then I highly recommend you plan in advance as there is so much to see and do. Unfortunately our daughter became unwell on the second day so we limited our time to let her rest but still accomplished everything we wanted in terms of rides and shows. Our favourite family ride is Twilight Zone : Tower of Terror and we rode about 6 times! We were lucky to see the decorations for Halloween season beginning to emerge around the main park and it really created a buzz for us. Wait times were never too large on most rides and the weather was great. Our family love Frontierland area in Disneyland Paris and especially with the Halloween theming. Big Thunder Mountain was awesome as usual and Phantom Manor beckoned us a few times too. Hyperspace Mountain was thrilling as ever and Star Tours took us on a fantastic journey to the stars. Our family also love to just wander around Fantasyland and do the classic rides. You are never too old for Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Snow White or Casey Jr! MARVEL Avengers Campus Of course the highlight of our family trip this time was our first look at the newly opened MARVEL Avengers Campus. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE! Disney have really stepped up the game with this new area and we loved everything about it. There’s such a buzz in the air anytime you walk through Avengers Campus as Superheroes can appear from nowhere and put on an amazing show. We were lucky enough to spot Captain America, Captain Marvel, Wasp, Warriors of Wakanda and of course…. Spider-man and Ironman! There are 2 new rides to discover too with Spider-man : W.E.B Adventure and Avengers Assemble : Flight Force. Our family absolutely loved both rides and the technology that went into Spider-Man W.E.B Adventure was awesome. It is a family friendly ride where you …………read full article

Luke’s Disneyland Paris Snacks report 2023 Disneyland Paris Snacks We have just returned from our 7 night stay at Disneyland Paris and one of my goals was to try as many of the Disneyland Paris snacks as possible. I noticed this was one topic that isn’t discussed as much so I wanted to give my reviews on the many snacks we tried with pictures to go with them. Mini pancakes (Poffertjes) These sweet treats can be found at the Old Mill snack stand in Fantasyland. These were €6 for 12 and you had a choice of Nutella or sugar topping. They were hot, light and fluffy and the whole family loved them. We would definitely recommend 8/10 Cheese balls (Bitterballen) Also located in the Old Mill snack stand in Fantasyland. I cant remember the price for these but i think they were around €6 and you got 6 of them. OMG! These are the nicest cheese balls I’ve ever had, cheesy and almost so melted it was saucy, crispy and light, anyone who loves cheese will love these. These Dutch dipping balls come filled with either Beef or Cheese. Both are accompanied with a choice of mustard, ketchup or mayo. 10/10 BBQ Turkey Leg The Turkey Legs can be purchased at The Last Chance Saloon in Frontierland. This was top of my to try list after reading all the hype about these. The cost was €9 each. This definitely met the hype, it had a very strong BBQ taste on the skin and the meat was so smoked it had a ham taste to it. The meat was tender, not dry at all and literally fell off the bone 10/10 Pineapple Dole Whip This delicious ice cream is located at Café de la Brousse in Adventureland. I have to say this was amazing! I would describe it as a pineapple flavoured sorbet version of a Mr Whippy ice cream covered in pineapple sauce. These were soft but icy at the same time, perfect for a hot day and not sickly at all. 9/10 Churros Churros can usually be bought at Fuente del Oro Restaurant but it was currently closed so we had to go to the snack stand in Disney Village. €5 for 3 or €7 for 5 & €1 extra for Nutella. These were really decent. Sadly not freshly cooked but warmed up on order yet they still tasted fresh. 7.5/10 Disney Macarons Delicious Macarons were available at Broadwalk Candy Palace on Main Street U.S.A. There were 6 different flavours each with there own pictures costing €2 each. I tried the Minnie raspberry and the castle salted caramel butter. I thought the raspberry was really nice and filled with raspberry jam 7/10 The salted caramel butter was amazing!! Thick layer of filling 10/10 Mini Mickey Waffles Located at a snack stand in Adventureland near Indiana Jones. The price of these sweet treats was €5 for three. You have a choice of Nutella or cream topping with decorative marshmallows and chocolate castle picture. These were precooked but heated in a waffle iron on order. If I hadn’t seen them get the premade waffle from the bag I would of thought they were freshly cooked, they were really nice and a huge hit with the family. 8.5/10 Star wars Waffles We found these novelty Waffles at the food stand behind Hyperspace Mountain. They cost €5 each with a choice of sugar or Nutella. These were freshly made on order and we watched the man pour fresh batter into the waffle iron. We agreed these were really good! We definitely recommend 9.5/10 Corn dog We purchased these at the snack stand next to buzz lightyear meet and greet in Walt Disney studios. These were €8 each. It was nice and i am glad I tried it. The batter was really nice but the beef hot dog was a bit strange. It had a really crunchy texture, not like your typical snappy feeling hot dog but crunchy to bite through. The flavour was nice but the texture just wasn’t for me. They came with a choice of ketchup, mustard or BBQ sauce topping 6/10 Disney Popcorn Last but not least was the famous Disney popcorn (located everywhere ). These come as part of a deal costing €6.50 individually or €8 with a drink included. You could also choose souvenir options for an extra charge. You can’t walk anywhere in Disney without smelling the freshly made warm popcorn. We always go for the sweet version as this is our favourite snack. Its literally just sweet popcorn but there’s something magical about walking around Disneyland Paris or watching the parade with your warm Disney popcorn. I don’t know what it is but it wouldn’t feel right if you didn’t get your popcorn! We must have had about 5 to 6 boxes on our holiday 11/10! There were a few more Disneyland Paris snacks I would have liked to try but I was so full from all the snacks and our meals Feel free to add the snacks you had that we didn’t try on our post in the DLP Tips Facebook group.
