I know ye have been waiting patiently lol!!!
This is a bit long Im afraid! Good luck reading it!
Wow I cant believe ist all over and yes I have been bitten by the bug:)
Had such a great time and got to do everything we had planned on doing. Delighted!!! Had a few adventurous moments but survived!
Did I meet Donald Duck ........................!!!
Had every thing done the day before. Super organised!!! Went to bed but could I sleep, No !!! . Eventually nodded off dreaming of Disney :)
Our plane was at 6.50 from Dublin . We set the alarm for 2.30. Poor Dp was so tried. He is self employed and was working until 11.30 :( Poor guy.
Arrived at the airport about 3.45 am. Probably a wee bit early but better to be there than elsewhere! Checked in the bags and went for brekkie. Nom nom . Lots of free time , looking around the shops, then headed to our gate!! I was getting excited by now and poor dp was hanging with the sleep.. awwww!
Got on the plane.Ds had to sit by window :) He was dressed in his mickey t shirt and the stewards made a fuss of him . so cute.
flight was on time, landed about 9.40. Hadn't been to GDG since about 2002 but it all came flooding back to me. We had a bit of a wait at baggage collection as the buggies didn't turn up!!! Got chatting to the other families, where they were staying etc.
Buggies arrived, and we headed to the VEA bus. There was a queue waiting there when we got there. But we got on. All the other families that I had been chatting didnt make the bus as I saw them when were were pulling off !!! we must be fast walkers lol. Easy enough to locate.My goodness it is a big airport!!!
Ds and Dp slept on the bus. I woke them when I could see the Park !!!!! ahhhhhhhh that lovely feeling you get when you see the Disneyland Paris signs and then the entrance !!!
Bus dropped to the hotels and then the train station. Off we got , walked over to bus stop 54 to get bus to hotel. Ready to get on the bus when I asked Dp where is the Mickey mouse backpack?? You have it, no you have it, none of us had it!!! Panic i just yelled run , get it!!!
The VEA bus had carried on to hotel NY and there was my dp running like a looney, sweating in the heat, running through the security fence! The security guard got in his car and followed dp. He saw the VEA bus coming and started waving his hands like mad !! The security guards was trying to stop him but the VEA bus driver spoke english and understood him. Thank God. You are very lucky he said , so true as our money was in that bag!
I had to stop myself from laughing at him poor guy.
So eventually got on the next bus , arrived at hotel and checked in . Our room was ready which was great as I think we all need a shower after the previous events. Room was lovely. Really well themed. Ds loved the bunk beds. Gorgeous view. Very happy.
After shower and change of clothes we headed to the park. Waited on the bus outside. Was lovely as the waiting area is shaded. Bus came a few mins later. When we got off at the station and were headed in I realised the mickey mouse bag was missing again!!! du du du!
I had gotten a wipe out of it and had left it at the bus stop outside the hotel! I was begining to crack now! so back on the next bus , back to the hotel, was the bag there. Yes!!! I jumped off grabbed the bag and hopped straight back on. Holy God. Our passports were in it as we were getting out Annual Passports later on! I was like what else can happen!
Eventually got to the park and went straight to the Bureau Passeport Annual. No queue. Cm was lovely. Straight forward. We were about 15 mins in there.
We were all starving by now so went to Plaza gardens for lunch. We had different plans but things changed and we didn't mind. Plaza Gardens was nice. Nice selection .Thought it was ok but not great..I was so hot I couldnt eat much. Had visions of eating tonnes of dessert but that didnt happen!Ds loved the mini cornettos! and the sweets , and the pancakes!
Ok so first ride of the day Buzz lightyear. Awesome.'Love this ride.s does too. Queue wasnt too bad about 20 mins. Came off it and went straight back in. Then ds and dp went on Orbitron. Queue was ok again about 20 mins id say. Then we went on to Autopia. Love this ride too. Queue was about 30 mins. Was so cool. Dp and Ds went in one car me on another!. Was lovely being able to race them! Went on this again. The went to watch the Parade.
Did a bit of looking around the shops and got Ds a cars toys out of his pocket Money.Used the Ap so got our discount;)
Ds was getting so cranky and tired that we decided to call it a night then.
