    Disneyland Paris

    July 6, 2017 in France

    A surprise for the kids today. Off to Disneyland Paris. Alanah very excited again and Liam trying not to show how impressed he is that we have been able to keep this secret from him. What did I think of Disneyland? Well as far as theme/fun parks go, no body does it better than Disney. I'm not into big rides but have to say the rides here were pretty good. Star Wars space tour was really good and entertaining. The queue was done as a spaceport, keeping you engaged before the ride. Captain Nemo's submarine was fun and the Indiana Jones ride and wild west mine ride were a blast. Best ever haunted house I have been in. Done very well. Only annoying thing was the merchandising. Every shop in and outside the park you went into had pretty much the same products regardless of the theme of the shop. It became quite tiresome. We met Mike and he was very engaging and given it was the peak season, queues weren't that long. All in all a fun day.Read more

    Disneyland

    March 30 in France

    Tag 2 und 3 waren wir im Disneyland und im Movie Park . Trotz ein wenig Regen und viel Anstehen machen die liebevollen Details und die Abschluss Shows alles wett. Der Movie Park war süß aber reicht 1 mal. Danach ging es ins Paxton Resort, wo sie uns leider ohne Essen ins Bett schickten :D

    25 Jahre Disneyland Paris

    April 12, 2017 in France

    Juhuuu, wir feiern Geburtstag! Zusammen mit Mickey Mouse & Co.

    Der Shuttlebus vom Hotel ins Disneyland ist mega überfüllt, dass die so noch fahren dürfen? Naja, es sind ja nur wenige Minuten 😅
    Dort angekommen macht Elly schon mal grosse Augen.... Der Eingang alleine ist schon wunderschön. Am heutigen Tag wird eine Grosse Geburtstagsparty gefeiert mit mehreren Paraden und Shows. Also es hat sehr sehr sehr viele Leute angezogen. Der Park war rappelvoll. Bei jeder Attraktion musste man anstehen, ja sogar zum Mittagsnack, ich stand eine gefühlte Stunde an für einen stink normalen Hot Dog. Egal, meine Mädels besetzen draussen einen Platz für die Parade.

    Die Preise sind echt krass, okay Disney braucht viel Geld für die tollen Filme. Also wir haben uns nur von Snacks beim Mittag und Abendessen ernährt und dafür zu dritt einfach mal 47Eur liegen lassen 🤔 naja es hat geschmeckt.

    Man brauchte heute viel Geduld, die längste Wartezeit hatten wir bei der Achterbahn Big Thunder Mountain. Angegeben waren 100min. Am Schluss waren es 2 Stunden. Aber Elly hat sich gut durchgearbeitet und hatte dann auf der Fahrt auch Spass. Aber ein zweites Mal sind wir dann doch ned gefahren 😂

    Ja, nach einem gefühlten Marathon fallen wir nun ins Bett bevor es morgen wieder nach Hause geht.

    Disneyland Paris

    November 2, 2017 in France

    We did it! We boarded the plane with two children, 5 and 1, to fly across the Atlantic Ocean to....yup...you got it!...Disneyland Paris!! Having been to Disneyland and Disneyworld, we are trying a new one...Disney Paris for their 25th Anniversary year. The flight went well, with a free and unexpected seat upgrade, amazing staff, and our new favourite airline...KLM! The flight attendant made Aston a special bed on the floor, gave the girls activity packages, and provided awesome snacks!!...even ice cream! Our girls are super travellers....Morgan entertains herself with books, cartoons. and colouring....Aston was happy flirting and peeking at the other passengers. About 20 hours of travelling later, we finally arrived to our hotel...The Explorers Hotel~~~ and the adventures begin!! This is the BEST hotel we have ever stayed at with the kids...a pirate ship play area inside, a pirate ship playground outside, an indoor climbing play structure, and an amazing swimming pool (also pirate theme)....it's built for kids! We love it. Oh, I almost forgot the fire breathing dragon near the lobby and the cinema too! There is also an arcade and a kids fitness centre! The rooms are themed....ours was a ship theme with bunkbeds and even treasure map carpet! We are very excited for our stay!Read more

    Disneyland Paris

    November 4, 2017 in France

    It doesn't matter what Disney you are at, in what country, or what language they speak....it's still Disney!! And we love everything about it!!

    After a short bus ride, an extra day of tickets, and some extreme confusion as to how, when, and the cost to purchase the multi-day tickets, we managed to make it to the park! Through all of our travels, Jay, Morgan, and I have never had to deal with jet lag...but Aston...oh boy...Aston was up for the first three nights....ALL night!! So our first couple of days were slow going, but we had accounted for that in the plans, just in case!

    Our hotel and Disney are still decorated with Halloween decor, but are starting the transformation to Christmas...so it's a bit of both right now! Pumpkins and Christmas trees! Disney is AWESOME! We've already visited both parks. Many of the rides and attractions are different than any others we have seen. So far, our favourites are Ratatouille (well, Aston doesn't really like this one as it feels like you are falling off of a building at one point.), and Crush's Coaster. I'm amazed at the size of rides that Morgan wants to go on!

    Disneyland Paris

    November 6, 2017 in France

    Four more days at Disney, two asthma attacks (from all the second hand smoke), lots of Nutella croissants, and tons of fun!! Not much sleep, very strange milk (and extremely hard to find), and only an hour in the pool and it was time to move on! The play place, theatre and playground were more appealing than the pool to our little ones....and to Jay, since speedos are a requirement in France swimming pools! We were surprised that milk was hard to come by...Aston is a milk lover and still requires a nightly dose before going to sleep. The milk at the hotel, when we could get it, was unrefrigerated, sugary, and just plain tasted funny.....so Starbucks became a nightly stop for us after leaving Disney. Anywhere in the world, and we can still get our Starbucks!....and McDonalds. We've made it a mission to stop at a McDonalds in every country....more out of curiosity than anything else. France has a few different menu items. We tried the 280 burger....it was honestly quite boring. Morgan's meal came with an ice cream in a tube....which was fun!...but she didn't like it...haha.

    Canada is a multicultural society, so we hear different languages spoken on a daily basis, many of our friends, and Morgan's friends have different cultural backgrounds....but it still amazes me to see the innocence in children....to see how non-judgemental they are....and how accepting of each other they can be. They don't judge, they do get curious of differences, but they don't judge. A child is a child...a playmate is a playmate...and language is not important. We can learn a lot from children....even though they can't communicate through verbal language, they still become friends....they still play....they still laugh...they still hug....and most importantly, they are kind, compassionate, and caring. They help each other without being asked, they share without being told to, and they smile without fear. Both girls made friends, Morgan speaking English, the friends speaking French, and Aston...well, she speaks her own language...lol. We're excited to move on and experience Paris!

    Paris Disneyland

    November 17, 2017 in France

    We packed up this morning and headed back to the Explorer's Hotel at Disney! It was a pretty relaxing day...settling in to the hotel and spending the evening at Disney Village. We had supper at the famous Rainforest Cafe....an amazing restaurant and experience for the kids! The animals move and make noise, a storm ravages the restaurant....it's fun! The food is mediocre, but I guess you pay for the experience. haha. We spent the rest of the evening walking around Disney Village, enjoying the switch from Halloween to Christmas! Tomorrow is our last day in France...and will be spent at Disneyland!...of course!

    Aston had a weird rash a couple of days ago...and today, Morgan and I are covered in what we are guessing are bed bug bites!! We're not sure...they don't really seem like bed bug bites, but it's only on our exposed skin....and doing some research...it seems as though we found a dead bed bug (flat) in the apartment we had rented...and the sheets were covered in what is apparently bug excrement! It all makes sense now....not sure how we didn't put it together when we were there!! Jay and I really need to get our "travel senses" back!
