    Disneyland Paris Trip Report May 2013: Driving There

    This most recent trip to Disneyland Paris, May 26th-30th, was a last minute visit booked just a few weeks before departure. Usually we get plans sorted at least 6 months in advance, so I wasn’t quite prepared for the £500 cost of booking the Eurostar, our usual method of transportation between the UK and France. What to do now? Well, I could drive, I mean, I’ve been a passenger on a drive to Disneyland Paris, didn’t look that hard. I’ll confess, before this trip I had never driven abroad, let alone…

    I Finally Rode Big Thunder Mountain in Disneyland Paris

    Last weekend was my 13th visit to Disneyland Paris, and on my previous 12 visits I had not once ridden Big Thunder Mountain. In fact it’s probably fair to say that I hadn’t even contemplated it. I’m what you’d call a thrill avoider when it comes to rides – the falls in Pirates of the Caribbean and Casey Jr are enough of an adrenaline rush for me.
