It’s cold and wet and miserable outside, an actually…I think it might be snowing?! There’s a flurry, and it’s not just Olaf’s…
Why does it feel like Autumn and Winter go on for ever and ever yet Spring and Summer seem so brief? As Brits we seem to just accept this, keep our heads down and carry on. We function better in the cold. And then in summer soon as the mercury hits 28° we seem to turn into puddles and simply can’t function (unless there’s Pimms, we can usually manage if there’s an icy glass of Pimms about!)
I long for a warmer time, a happier time…a Disney-filled time. Earlier this year I made a wild decision to purchase a Passeport Annuel Dream aka a years pass to access Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park as many times as I wanted for a solid 365 days. Admittedly I’ve only managed 13 days but totally feel that it was worth the investment. If you’re looking to go for more than 3 days and you aren’t staying in a resort hotel I highly recommend you look into the membership scheme – you can find out everything here in this handy DLP Guide.
There’s so much more to these theme parks than just rollercoasters (though nothing beats riding Big Thunder Mountain in a loop as the sun sets, or spending 3 consecutive hours doing Twilight Zone’s Tower of Terror Hotel until you’re on a first name basis with the Cast Members); there’s spectacular shows such as Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular in Disney Studios and season productions in Le Théâtre du Château just off Main Street; several parades every day where you can catch a glimpse of your favourite characters; and of course the magical firework show at the end of the night in front of Aurora’s beautiful castle.
Hopefully through some of these photographs I took on this years adventures you’ll see that the Disney teams stunning attention to detail that keeps the magic alive throughout the parks (and I’m sorry in advance if you find yourself accidentally booking a trip there by the end of the blog!)
