Disneyland as a kid was always the dream, but I’m telling you… Disneyland as an adult is even better.

A couple of weeks ago I visited Disneyland Paris with my family, we took the kids but the adult to child ratio was quite hilarious and the adults were definitely more excited than the kids. It’s because we all knew what was coming, we knew we’d soon be stepping into this bizarre, magical land where nothing feels real and it all seems like an amazing dream. We stayed at the Disneyland hotel which meant we could really get the most out of the weekend as it’s literally in the park. Everything is so grand at Disney, including the hotels and the huge staircases and high ceilings bring back so many amazing childhood memories for me. It was one of my nephews’ first time in a hotel so having to explain to him why he has to put shoes on when he leaves his bedroom was definitely memorable.

I’ve never been one for rides, as a kid I was always the bag holder and I’d prefer to soak up the experience instead. This time round I seemed to have a bit more courage as I was with family and well, they’re very good at convincing me to do things. We went on pretty much all the big rides (and all the kiddy ones too!). My favourite rides were Ratatouille, Crush’s Coaster and Pirates of the Caribbean. Somehow I survived Space Mountain despite being told it definitely doesn’t go upside down… it definitely did. The Disney Studios park had so many great rides but the atmosphere at the Disneyland Park can’t be beaten. I ate far too many toffee apples and far too much candy floss, I was pretty much on a sugar high the entire time.

It was a great opportunity to practice some of new camera skills and I became family photographer for the weekend (I took 703 photos and edited them down to 93 great ones for our family album). One of my highlights from the trip was without a doubt the beautiful light and fireworks display on the Friday night. It’s incredible how the projections are shown on the castle whilst a water and fireworks display compliments the most memorable Disney songs. I was grinning ear to ear the entire time!

I love sharing my trips every now again by doing these travel photo diaries so I hope you like seeing my snaps. It’s rare for me and my family to all go away together so it was a trip that I won’t be forgetting any time soon. Very special indeed.

    Your photo with Mickey is so cute! It seems like you had the best time ever. Disney as an adult is definitely the best ๐Ÿ˜€ I haven’t been in about two years, and I miss going there, especially that I’m living so close to it. Pirates of the Caribbean is also one of my favourite rides, I love the Rock’n’Roller Coaster as well (not sure you’d like this one though :P)

    I think maybe Space Mountain in the US Disneyland doesn’t go upside down? I remember going on it and really loving it, but I don’t remember it going upside down!

    All of these photos are so beautiful as well Lily, you really captured that whimsical Disney feeling that makes you feel like a kid again.


  27. Ashley says:
