Though going to USA remains a distant dream – but Disneyland always resided in the back of my memory. And when I visited Paris last year and I came to know of the Paris Disneyland, there was nothing stopping me and I told my family to redraw our Paris tour as Disneyland had to be visited at all costs. And the fourth day in Paris was designated as the Disneyland day – the entire day of course.
To Disneyland Paris
Disneyland Paris, originally Euro Disney Resort, is located in Marne-la-Vallée, some 32 km east from the Paris centre, and is said to be the most visited theme park in all of France and Europe. So on Day-4, we drove to Marne-la-Vallée to realize my childhood dream.
It would not be possible for me to cover our visit in just one post as there is so much to see and describing all in one post may not be possible – in fact we were not able to see the entire Disneyland due to shortage of time as one day is too less to see everything there. So I will divide my visit in a number of post to cover many major events – and mind you the last post will compel you to visit Disneyland Paris!!
Concessional 37 Euro ticket for all - and for us too!!
Going to Disneyland is quite costly - something like 70 Euros per adult and 37 Euros for under 18. But it was just by stroke of luck that the day we had chosen for Disneyland Paris, there was a special concession for the entire day - and that is even adults could enjoy at kids' ticket. So we hurriedly purchased four tickets costing 37 Euros each lest the deal expired.
These children (above) would surely cherish the memory of visiting their first ever Disneyland tour

The first glimpse of the Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant - "Sleeping Beauty's Castle" - there will be much more about it later in one of my next posts
Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast
Driving these tiny cars was simply fun - my son and my wife too ventured to ride these. Here in the photo above my son reaches the finish point while my wife watches on
Reaching this eatery had consumed almost half of the day and we haven't had started as yet. But it was time for a quick snack and a little rest to move on and go through the science world, meet Mickey Mouse, enjoy rides on roller coasters, cup and saucers and flying elephants, a ride in the simulator of the Star World and the train through the wild west, and mid-day star show of the day - the Disney Magic on Parade!
Keep reading my posts as I would write about each adventure bit by bit to keep the interest alive.
