    Disneyland Paris Diary: Halloween 2015 – Day 3

    The only time it’s good when your body wakes you up at stupid o’clock is when your in Disneyland. Making the most of the early morning I decided to head to the park for extra magical hours. So far the Parisien weather is behaving which meant a beautiful sunrise over the resort and one of the best things about extra magical hours at Halloween is experiencing daybreak in Fantasyland The Disney Villains have taken over the castle again this Halloween. Maleficient’s Court with the dragon shaped brambles has returned where she…

    Disneyland Paris Diary: Halloween 2015 – Day 2

    Waking up in Disneyland Paris has to be one of the best feelings in the world. Have to admit I’ve wondered around the park today in a bit of a daze, I don’t think it’s sunk in yet that I’m actually here! After a slow start, you can get jetlag from travelling to France right?, I spent a lot of the day exploring Frontierland and Adventureland, so I will let the photos do most of the talking. The Pumpkin villagers and Jack Skellington have taken over Frontierland for the Halloween season…

    Disneyland Paris Diary: Halloween 2015 – Day 1

    I’m home! Today I arrived in Disneyland Paris, and at this time of year every day is Halloween. This is one of my favourite seasons the parks celebrate, and I’ve been lucky enough to experience it for the past three years so this time I thought I’d bring you all along for the ride and to share the magic. Each day I’ll try my best to post photos and a bit of information from the day so you can all feel a little closer to the place we all love. Hope…

    Relais Spa Chessy Val d’Europe Aparthotel (Near Disneyland Paris) – Premium Double Room Review

    On my recent trip to Disneyland Paris I was booked into Hotel New York on the Saturday night for the Frozen Summer Fun press weekend, but wanted to be there first thing in the morning so as not to miss anything. This meant a night in Val d’Europe and a chance to try out a different hotel. I actually looked at the Hipark Serris-Val d’Europe where I stayed in December 2013, but I was drawn to the Relais Spa by the promise of a large double bed in their Premium Double…

    Hipark Serris-Val d’Europe (Near Disneyland Paris) – Studio Review

    Last November I visited Disneyland Paris for the launch of the 2013 Christmas Season, and on the Friday night I stayed for the first time in a studio at Hipark Serris-Val d’Europe. I had seen quite a few people speak favourably of these apartments so wanted to give it a go – plus at £52 it was only £2 more expensive than Séjours & Affaires. I got off the train at Disneyland Paris, and then got another train to Val d’Europe. The walk to Hipark was about 20-25 minutes, which was…

    Disneyland Paris Trip Report May 2013: Staying Off Site at Séjours & Affaires Serris Val d’Europe

    I have covered the driving there part of this trip report and now comes where we stayed. For the first time in 14 trips, we were going to stay off site, not in one of the Disneyland Paris resort hotels. I’d priced it all up before, but never seemed to find a price which was cheaper than staying on site. That was until I explored more than just the partner hotels, and also factored in annual passports. In the past I had heard people talk of how cheap it was to…
