Disneyland Paris 110115


Visited Disneyland for the first time ever in my life! Can I safely say that Disneyland is every child's dream? Well mine came true during my 23rd year on earth. :D (2015 I'm already 23 years old OMG)

And since our trip was planned months ago and Disneyland was planned to fall on the 11th, we were so lucky the weather that day was perfect! Really sunny unlike other days during our trip which were either rainy or cloudy. Felt like it was meant to be. And I'm so happy I'm here with Tim. :) He's just one of the many many boyfriends dragged to Disneyland just to accompany their girlfriend? Haha reluctant or not, I'm sure he enjoyed himself very much too! Would have been even more perfect thou if my siblings were here with me because I've always wanted to go to Disneyland with them. :(





Got ourselves the 1Day1Park Mini tickets for €37 each which means we're entitled to access to one of the two parks: Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios. We chose to visit Disneyland Park. :) Disneyland Park is made up of classic Disney characters and fairy tales like Mickey Mouse and Disney Princesses, while Walt Disney Studios features more recent animations and high-tech experiences like Cars and Ratatouille.

Decision was made together to go for only one of the parks because we only had a day at Disneyland. Figured we won't be able to fully explore both parks in a day- would be disappointing if we left out anything and it would also be less enjoyable if we were to rush around pressuring ourselves to finish exploring everything. And I personally chose Disneyland Park over Walt Disney Studios because there's the castle and the parade and the fireworks, which are musts when you visit Disneyland especially if it's a first. Walt Disney Studios have a lot of exciting attractions and would be amazing if we had more time but it's okay, we'll save it for the next time! Something to consider before you buy tickets for Disneyland Paris. :)





Sleeping Beauty's Castle ♥ the entrance to Fantasyland and my Ootd shot with the castle as background. :) 

Really loving my baby pink short coat from HM. Super girly and pretty! The high neck saves me from the hassle of lugging around with me a scarf. Gorgeous sling bag is from River Island. Also if you've been following long enough you won't be weirded out by me eating ice cream in winter lol.




A picture with Mickey at his house. :D Many people left half way and some left right after seeing the queue but we persevered. Finally got a picture with the little critter after around an hour of queuing. #soworthit




Alice's Curious Labyrinth. :D From the entrance to the exit you'll have to go through a hedge maze which was really fun! You'd think it's easy but it's actually not haha. Suppose this is the simplest maze made for children, I don't think I'd be able to escape if it's any harder than this. :/



Short video in the maze taken by Tim. :) You can hear music playing the whole time and it feels really nice! Really felt as though you were lost in wonderland. At one point we laughed after realizing we were actually going in circles and returned to the same spot. Apologies for the below-par quality because I transferred it from his phone to mine through Whatsapp.


The Cheshire Cat with it's crazy eyes. So creepy. Am never fond of it!
The Queen's Castle

View of the maze from the castle taken by Tim. See the top right corner, the Red Queen
is hiding behind the gates and will pop up to scare passerby by yelling at them LOL


"Painting the roses red, we're painting the roses red."



Love this pic of Tim with the card soldiers. :D Really enjoyed this area themed after Alice in Wonderland but would love it more if they included the singing flowers which is my favourite part of the movie. Really really love the song The Golden Afternoon. "You can learn a lot of things from the flowers, for especially in the month of June~"







Sailed around the world in the happiest cruise "It's a Small World", featuring dolls dressed up in all kinds of traditional costumes, singing and dancing, celebrating festivals from all around the world. :)



Short video credits to Tim taken during the adorable cruise. :)

He was actually holding the selfie stick up without recording for a long while during the cruise (see second picture) and I thought he was having his camera on standby mode for pictures. Poor thing thought he was recording the whole time but turned out he didn't press the record button LOL. When we both found out, I couldn't control myself and was laughing non stop while the hurt expression he gave was too adorable!!



Was caught taking a selfie towards the end of the video above and this was it haha.




Highlight of Discoveryland was Space Mountain Mission 2. Can tell from the picture how much we both were enjoying the ride wheeee. :)



Visited Adventureland and Frontierland after that. :)





Captain Hook's Ship, and Skull Rock where Peter Pan hid Captain Hook's treasure. Love Peter Pan!



Picture taken during the Pirates of the Caribbean adventure cruise. Haha look at Tim's face. Really enjoyed the Indiana Jones roller coaster ride too!




At the Phantom Manor. Tried to act creepy but Tim called it cute. :/

The Phantom Manor was a memorable attraction. It's quite scary for me before entering and I held on to Tim tightly the whole time thinking it's a haunted house and there would be jump scares. The spooky ambiance was really on point! Was thinking to myself, why would any child want to visit this!? Turned out there were ghosts and stuff but it was not as scary heh.



Then came 4.45pm which was time for the parade! :D But I will continue in the next post cuz it's getting late and the post is getting too long. Haha the suspense right. Stay tuned! :)





With all the love,
Kxin
