August 2022 Disneyland Paris trip Report We enjoyed a fantastic 4 days and 3 nights trip, staying at Disney Hotel Cheyenne from 3rd to 6th August 2022. Hotel Cheyenne is lovely and quaint. Maintenance came out immediately to fix a fault in our room. The beds were comfy and there was lots of space and storage in the room. The hotel shuttle was often packed, but they seemed to run more regularly than the 12 mins advertised, so we didn’t have many issues apart from some other people who were rude. They also had a Woody character meet in the hotel in the morning, and I think Jessie can be there too. We only met Woody this time. Travelling on Eurostar We travelled from the UK via Eurostar at St Pancras. I booked special assistance and we were whizzed through bag checks and passport control. We arrived about an hour and a half before our train, but probably could’ve left it till an hour before. Our return journey we done the same, though it didn’t seem entirely necessary in France until we got back to the UK for passport checks. We also had the Disney Express check in service: helpful for luggage, especially on the last day as we left it there and enjoyed the park until we had to go. When we arrived we realised we needed to go to the hotel anyway because City Hall was rubbish, honestly, so we went to get our priority cards and activate the photo pass. Disneyland Paris food review We had pre-booked Half Board meal plan, and upgraded 2 of those meals to Princess Dining at Auberge de Cendrillon and a Character Breakfast at Plaza Gardens. The food and atmosphere at Bistrot Chez Rémy’s was by far our favourite dining experience. My Teenage son had the vegetable stew with plant-based Meatballs – he’s a meat lover and he really enjoyed this dish. I had the roasted cod and crushed potatoes and they were delicious! Captain Jack’s was Day 2 dinner, and though the food was nice & the restaurant looks good, it seemed really dark in there. Either I need new readers, or they need to change the menu writing from a tiny black scrawl because I could hardly read it! I had the Smoked Chicken & vegetable salad and the Chicken and Prawns with Rice. I wasn’t keen on their desserts though, and around the table we had all of them, which nobody seemed keen on. Of course i also treated myself to a lovely cocktail. Auberge de Cendrillon was lovely: I had the warm scallops & cauliflower, the Beef Casserole in a red wine sauce (with the best cheesy mash!), again, our table wasn’t hyped by the desserts, but we also had the celebration cake. Plaza Gardens Character breakfast started off lovely: Food was the standard Hotel buffet style breakfast (which we all really enjoyed every time) and characters were rotating round parts of the packed restaurant. Tigger was cute and kept bopping his nose on my phone as I did a selfie. Rabbit was cute too as was Pinocchio and Geppetto loved our Pinocchio tops. One downside of this experience was that we felt Captain Hook was so rude. At first we thought he was being cheeky as a villain, but he’d barely allow us to take photos meaning most of our group missed out, and kept pushing me away, using his hands to signal to hurry up (after 1 photo) and would just quickly move on. It was rather disappointing, so I mentioned it to a member of staff who turned out to be the restaurant manager. She was horrified but quickly made it up to us; she did offer for us to come back for free for the evening meal, but it was our last day, so instead she sent us straight over to Mickey as we hadn’t met him yet, and gave us a queue jump. I am a foodie – the 30th anniversary snacks are really cute if you’re into that sort of thing. The Beignets are soooo delicious. I had the chocolate one and I really wish I hadn’t brought it on the last day for the train home, cause I could’ve eaten so many more! Using Disneyland Paris Priority Pass As a group, we had 2 priority cards, and these were honestly a god send. I don’t know if we just got lucky as some people we spoke to in queues reported issues with getting times to come back etc, but we flashed our cards at the premier access line and got on every ride we wanted almost immediately. We ended up doing Hyperspace Mountain 4 times, at one point we rode twice in the space of 15 mins, because it was my son’s favourite. Only attraction we got a time to come back for was to meet Stitch. Now Stitch is my son’s favourite so this was an absolute priority for us, and our time was an hour after we queued. In the meantime we did a ride during that time to keep him occupied. Stitch was very popular. My boy has Autism & ADHD, and it was a lifesaver. We also used the priority areas for the parades and Illuminations, and for the line at the hotel breakfast. Parades, Weather & Illuminations The weather was gorgeous, and although the parks always said at full capacity, I didn’t think it seemed too busy – until the night we stayed for the illuminations! It was heaving! Little tip: if you want to watch it but don’t want to deal with the crowd and young kids being up that late, I’m pretty sure it’s on Disney + – I realised when it started that I’d watched it a few weeks ago. The 30th anniversary parade is amazing, I don’t know the lyrics as they’re mostly in French (well, there’s the familiar Disney songs from films in English, but the 30th anniversary bit is …………read full article

James – August Disneyland Paris Trip Report Disneyland Paris Trip Report Aug 2nd – 6th We flew from Manchester to Paris CDG airport with minimal delays at security! An excellent start. We stayed at Disney Sante Fe hotel and had booked connecting rooms as there were 5 of us. The hotel was lovely and perfect for our youngest child who loves Disney Cars. The rooms are of decent size with two double beds in each room. There is a ceiling fan in the rooms. My wife and I felt a bit warm during the nights but nothing you can’t cope with. There is a free shuttle bus to take you directly to the Park which only takes a couple of minutes and they run back and forth till 1am. The bus was usually busy, with some unnecessary pushing and shoving to get on the bus which was a bit irritating. Plaza Gardens buffet Character Breakfast Arriving to the Park was unbelievable. On the first full day we had booked a character breakfast at Plaza Gardens in Disneyland Park. Both our children loved meeting the characters including Pinocchio, Tigger, Captain Hook, Smee & Rabbit. The buffet breakfast is of good quality and lots of variety with both hot and cold food offerings. Our two children, who can be fussy, ate quite well. Lots of rides and attractions! The rides that we went on were great! We used premier access fast passes for some of the rides and the ones the children wanted to go on! The wait time for some of the rides were not too bad fromwhat we experienced. Our longest wait time in fact was about 45 minutes. It is better late in the evening as queue times can shorten to about 10-15 mins for certain rides. Some of the rides we went on : Disney Cars Road trip Ratatouille Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast Big Thunder Mountain Aladdin Flying carpets Cars Race Rally Slinky Dog Toy Story Parachute Drop Hyperspace mountain Dumbo Flying Elephant World Class shows We booked two shows, the Lion King in Frontier land and Mickey and the Magician which is situated in Walt Disney studios. I’d advise to pre book these shows, just so your not waiting in line or missing out on the shows due to popularity. Both shows that we saw were absolutely unbelievable and are definitely worth it. Night-time Fireworks We went to see the fireworks and light show on both Thursday and Friday. This is definitely a highlight of the holiday. We got our spot to watch this from about 21:50 on both nights. We brought snacks and drinks whilst we waited. Blankets and jackets were needed too for the kids as it got a little chilly. On the Thursday everyone sat to watch the display. Unfortunately, on the Friday, a few people were standing up in front and refused to sit down which was very irritating. We had to stand but we enjoyed it nevertheless. We rented a buggy from the park for the week which was a god send. We also had the photo pass and the photos we got from them were brilliant. See you real soon Mickey!
Suzanne – August 2022 Trip Report First time family trip to Disneyland Paris This was our first time visiting Disneyland Paris. We travelled by Eurostar and booked a package which included tickets for our whole stay at Disney Sequoia Lodge Hotel. We were there for 3 nights and 4 days. There was myself, my husband & our 2 children who are 2yrs & 7 yrs old. We travelled directly on the Eurostar and wish we had done the same on the way back. On our return journey we transferred at Lille Europe. This probably would have been fine on the way out, but the local train to Lille was crazily busy. This made the return journey not as smooth or as enjoyable as the way out. Next time, I would still happily transfer, but I would rather do this on the way out when the magic and excitement is running high and, crucially, legs are not so tired! When you first see the parks it is just the best feeling ever. It is simply Breath-taking and just a real WOW! moment. The Disneyland Hotel was looking great and the first sight of Sleeping Beauty castle is so perfect. We walked right into the Shine Brighter parade. Wow, this was sensational. The song lives with me now and it’s just so happy and Disney! We then had reservations at Pym restaurant which had really good food and a suitable variety for all of us. We liked Pym’s restaurant more than Downtown restaurant which was ok, but not as much for children in my opinion. The desserts were amazing though. Sequioa Lodge Hotel Each day we used our Extra Magic Time (A Disney perk given to hotel guests) and headed back to the hotel for a mid afternoon break. We used the swimming pool twice. The outdoor pool at Disney Sequoia Lodge was very welcome in the heat. Our 7 year old daughter absolutely loved the slide! The hotel itself I loved and pictures do not do it justice. The rooms are slightly dated and no USB etc but we were prepared with extension lead and travel adaptors. We loved the atmosphere of this hotel and would definitely stay here again. We were lucky with the lake view from our room (photo below!) and there is a lovely decking area to sit out in the evenings. There is a free shuttle bus provided but we walked to the parks each day. It’s a really nice 10 minute stroll through Disney Village to get to the parks. Rides, Shows, Characters and Champagne! Over the course of our stay we did every attraction we wanted to. We did miss out Crush’s Coaster but none of us were that fussed and it gives a great reason to come back! Parent swap for one of us to stay with the 2 year old was great. You get a little ticket which you take straight to the premier access line so both adults can ride at different times and second one does not have to line up again. The whole thing was probably a bit much for our youngest (heat, crowds, change of routine) but he still enjoyed himself. I wouldn’t say there are many rides suited to this age but all children under 3 year olds are free entry so we didn’t feel like we had wasted money and it’s all about the atmosphere at their age. He loved Autopia, Storybook Land Canal Boats and Dumbo but other than that the fountains and the cranes fixing the hotel were his favourites. Autopia is pretty after 9pm and the line is relatively low after 9:30pm. Our 7 year old loved all of the rides especially Big Thunder Mountain and thanks to parent swap, she rode 4 times in one day. We didn’t arrive too early for parades or shows and saw everything we wanted to. Just to the right of the castle, beside Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast, is a quiet spot and we literally walked over just before the start. We watched the main parade from the curb outside city hall. We arrived 30 minutes before while I enjoyed a glass of champagne. There was plenty of space with no pushing. Princesses and Magical Moments Everyone we came across was polite and very helpful. Mickey and the Magician was a great show with so much space that we didn’t feel the need to upgrade to a premier seat. Our 2 year old had a push chair but our 7 year old daughter walked everywhere. By the last day she was shattered as we were doing around 25,000 steps most days. Seeing as it was our first visit to Disneyland Paris, and not sure if we would return, we booked princess dining and character dinner at Auberge de Cendrillon as we wanted to get the full Disneyland Paris experience. The Princesses were magical BUT it was very expensive and I maybe wouldn’t do this again as there are lots of other opportunities to meet characters. You can use the Disneyland Paris Mobile App to check meet ‘n’ greet times and where they will be throughout the day. Princess lunch however was amazing and a great way to meet 4 Princesses without lining up at Princess Pavilion which can have a large queue. To save money it was just me and my daughter whilst the two boys went to explore Adventure Isle. Adventure Isle area is fabulous and a great way to hide from the heat. We added on the Half Board meal plan to our package but felt it was too much food for us. It was useful for a first time visit until we knew what the other options were but I think we would just pay as you go next time. Yes, we are already looking at our next trip! I would definitely recommend to take water bottles as we refilled ours so much and only needed to buy one or two drinks in …………read full article
