Disneyland Paris – The Scenic Bits

Posted on

Here’s a few picturesque Photographs that I took while walking too and from the park.

I was surprised to see how much wildlife Disneyland attracted. I noticed that they had bird boxes located around the park with active residents and their babies. I couldn’t resist taking photo’s of the Geese though 🙂

Disneyland Paris – Stars ‘n’ Cars Parade

Quite a cute parade that was located at the Studio Park.

The Parade was one of the main things I was looking forward to at Disneyland Paris. The floats were put together so well but it was a shame it didn’t go on for a little longer with a few more floats. Here’s the pics, sorry about the dark ones, we didn’t have the best weather on our first day but there’s loads to look at… enjoy!

Disneyland Paris – The Castle

This was the focus point of many of my photo’s and fascinated me the most.

Disneyland Paris 2012

Bonjour!!! That’s probably as far as my French extends to I’m afraid 🙂 this became one of the most annoying things I found about Disneyland Paris…. but obviously being in Paris it was expected of course and there was no way I could afford a trip to Florida at the moment. I don’t want to sound rude about the French in fact I have to hand it to them, we received good service in the hotel and wherever we went in the parks. Anyway it has to be said that I had a fantastic time away and would definitely go back at some point. We  went on most of the rides but missed out some of the smaller ones. I really enjoyed ‘Rock n Roller coaster’, a high-speed coaster that plays Aerosmith songs as you go round, we went on that 5 times. My heart temporarily left my body on the ‘Tower of Terror’, it was that frightening but I managed to get off in one piece in the presence of two very amused friends. The rest of the coasters like ‘Indiana Jones Temple of Doom’, ‘Big Thunder Mountain’ and ‘Crush’s Coaster’ were a little more mild but still lots of fun.

The queues were horrendous… we found ourselves queuing for everything but I expected that too. I’m just glad we didn’t go during peak season. The food was very good but despite saying that the restaurants cater for vegetarians, I was disappointed to find out that they only had one or two vegetarian options on the menu’s, myself and my friend had to have veggie burgers two nights in a row in different restaurants.

The characters are like royalty at Disney, they certainly know how to entertain the children and the adults alike. The parades are nice to watch and the new light show that they have introduced for their 20th anniversary year which included projected images, lasers and fireworks was very impressive.

I took so many photo’s, so obviously I can’t include them all in my blog but I was thinking that I may separate them into groups and post different ones each day so stay tuned 🙂

Wicked and Wild

Posted on

Wow! has it really been that long since I last posted? Yet again, there really isn’t any excuse for it so lets crack on. I’m currently listening to Lady Antebellum on my new MP3 player, I decided against getting an overpriced iPod and steered towards the Sony Walkman which seems to do the job well enough for me so now I have something to listen to when travelling to Spain and sitting around the pool.

Apart from the events which have consisted of the consuming of much alcohol I have enjoyed my first ever trip to the musical ‘Wicked’. I was impressed by the amazing set and Matt Willis’s performance of  Fiyero. Considering I was expecting to see Rachel Tucker as the main role of Elphaba I was pleasantly surprised by understudy Nikki Davis-Jones.

Friday night was a little wild. It started with the much-anticipated Lostprophets gig at the Brixton 02 Academy which didn’t disappoint but went far too quick. We moved onto the after show party at Jamm (not the most impressive venue) where the boys were DJing. I must admit, not all the songs they chose to play were to my taste but I was happy they played a couple of tracks by the Prodigy. One band that played there that night stood out for me, a female fronted metal band called ‘Orestea’, the lead singer had awesome blue hair. We left shortly after Lostprophets did. The night went downhill from there when we entered a crappy nightclub in Clapham which cost £10 to get in, we danced to a lot of cheese and I had my drink spilt all over me and whoever was standing nearby by some dude who thought he was the bees knees, needless to say that my friend Mandy stepped in and gave him a mouth full… to be honest, I think I had had a few too many to even care. We still managed to get in around 4 in the morning though so it can’t have been that bad 😛

I have 5 more sleeps until Disneyland Paris and I’m planning on taking many photo’s, some of which I shall post on here, so until then it’s over and out.
