Oh yay! This post is a super duper happy one because it’s about our trip to Disneyland Paris! So far, I had visited Tokyo Disneyland with my family twice and also Hong Kong Disneyland with my university friends. Likewise for misterchewy who had also been to these two Disneylands before, so this means that we experienced the magic of our third Disneyland together, in the city of romance!
That morning, I woke up with a pretty bad headache but I brushed it aside, thinking that I would feel better after a while. The train ride to Disneyland Paris took about an hour and I slept all the way. When I woke up, the pain was still quite unbearable, so I popped a couple of Panadol pills on an empty stomach because I did not have any appetite to eat. Paid €79 per person for entry into Disneyland and Walt Disney Studio.
This is why I love love love Disneyland! It really feels as though I’m being transported to a totally different and magical world upon stepping in.
Love walking along these streets in Disneyland! It never fails to excite me even after all these years! 😛
I was keeping a lookout for Disney mascots roaming around but misterchewy was more keen on conquering as many thrill rides as possible. The Big Thunder Mountain queue was freaking long and I think we waited for about an hour. Friends would know that I’m not the most patient person on Earth. LOL.
The ride was mild but it was kinda worth the wait, as compared to some of the other attractions in Disneyland. I reckon the Big Thunder Mountain is suitable for kids too!
Before I could suggest anything else, misterchewy dragged me to the Space Mountain ride. We have tried the other Space Mountains before and loved it! It’s the most thrilling ride in Disneyland! 😀
Needless to say, the queue was even much longer than the one for Big Thunder Mountain. Oh yeah, I mentioned earlier that I was having a headache right?!
YES! Yours truly actually survived the crazy Space Mountain 360 degrees ride with a splitting headache! In fact, I had thought for a moment that my headache went away thanks to the ride. Haha!
The Chewys accomplished Space Mountain Mission 2! 😉
Next, we decided to check out the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters ride.
My memory is really poor! Realized that I had experienced this same ride before in the other Disneylands!
Basically, we were supposed to shoot down some aliens and stuff. Pretty lame but I suppose kids will love this.
When we were in Paris, my mum whatsapped misterchewy that I love churros and asked him to buy some for me in Disneyland. Sadly, I don’t think churros are being sold in Disneyland Paris. We didn’t see anyone else eating it so I settled for a crusty waffle with chocolate sauce! As I was still having a bad headache, I took more pills but apart from the headache, I was feeling quite nauseous because of taking Panadol on an empty stomach earlier in the day.
Of all characters, Darth Vader was the first out of the handful of mascots that we saw in Disneyland, before the parade. Quite pathetic and I don’t even fancy Darth Vader or Star Wars. Mehhhhh. And the trend in Paris seems to be getting these autographs from these characters rather than taking photos with them. Kinda weird I would say. Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland were much more happening because of all the high profile characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, etc, walking around.

At this point, I felt really weak and wanted to throw up every now and then but since we came a long way and paid so much for the tickets, I tried to force a smile and take as many photos as I could for memory’s sake. You have no idea. LOL. Told misterchewy that I felt like an old granny because I was finding somewhere to sit and rest every 10 minutes.
I seriously have no idea what’s with the husband’s act cute expression. Really unlike him. LOL.
I kept complaining that I wanted to vomit and faint, to the point that misterchewy announced that it was time to head back. But of course, I refused and told him I wanted to stay for the parade.
Since we had a bit of time to kill before the parade, we walked around Disneyland aimlessly and took more photos. It sucks to be sick.
The parade was scheduled to start at 5pm and about half an hour before that, the entire pavement was filled. Luckily, we managed to find somewhere to sit.
This 3 year old boy named Zack kept talking to me and he asked me a lot of funny questions! We started talking because he held on to me to balance himself as he sat down and I gave him a surprised look. He then smiled cheekily at me. Awwww..
All photos of the parade were taken by misterchewy while I took some videos. Enjoy! 😀
We didn’t check out Walt Disney Studio in the end and went back to our hotel. The first thing I did was to throw up and that night, I ran a slight fever But I’m still very glad that I survived an entire day at Disneyland Paris because it’s my dream to visit all the Disneylands in the world!
