Paris Day Three

I cannot even begin to express the excitement I felt waking up on an overcast Wednesday morning in the heart of Paris to start the journey to Disneyland with three of my best friends. To me, that is the stuff of absolute dreams! We started off by getting ourselves up nice and early to have our showers, do our makeup and get into the mindset of Disney Princesses - basically. Then we headed out for some breakfast at the next door cafe because we knew it was going to be a pretty long day. Again, I stuck to my typical Parisian holiday breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, yogurt, bread and pastries along with a cappuccino and then we were off! 
We got to the Metro Station, purchased our tickets to get us to Disneyland, bagged our seats on the train and started talking about everything there was to do in Disney! It took about 45 minutes to get from the train station at our hotel to the Disney stop which is pretty good because we spent this time wisely planning what rides we wanted to go on and where we fancied eating - priorities eh? 
I remember taking the first step off the train, walking up a staircase and seeing a massive archway with beautiful letters saying 'Welcome To Disneyland'. I absolutely adore everything Disney - what 90's kid doesn't? - and so seeing this welcome sign made me squeal and do a happy dance haha! 
We went through security which was very similar to airport security and then went through the famous pink Disneyland hotel archways to purchase our tickets. After the tickets were bought, we came out on to Main Street which always blows me away.. Decorated in the theme of spring/summer, it really was a sight. We rounded a slight bend and caught the first glimpse of Sleeping Beauty's castle and I basically reverted back to a five year old. Doing the walk up through the castle is such an amazing experience which I think everyone should have a shot at. I went to Disneyland Paris two years ago and there has been a serious development with the castle, there is now a beautiful staircase which allows you to go up to another level of the castle where the story of Sleeping Beauty is told by a series of stained glass windows and tapestries. You exit the castle by going out on to a balcony where you can see the whole of Disneyland and down a princess-esque winding staircase. 
After this amazing start, we knew this day was going to be as amazing as we had hoped. We managed to go on a load of rides including Snow White, Space Mountain, Hollywood Tower of Terror, RC racer, Crushes Coaster and Ratatouille. Each of the rides we went on were so incredible and we were quite lucky that the wait times weren't so bad. The longest time we had to queue was probably about 50-60 mins for RC Racer and Crush's Coaster, but the rest were all about 15-20 mins which we didn't mind at all! 
For lunch, we went to Casey's Corner which was very reasonably prices where we got french fries and a cappuccino to keep us going through our busy Disney day. Then for dinner we went to Au Chalet de la Marionette which was a Pinocchio themed fast food, sit down restaurant. We did have to wait an incredibly long time to get served here even though there wasn't too many people in front of us (we probably waited about 50 mins to be served). This did make us quite tired and irritated just because we could see there wasn't that many people in front of us and we had done a lot of walking and queuing throughout the day. But nonetheless we got salads and burgers and french fries and got a lot awaited seat! We were so happy to be at Disney but because we missed the entry time for the Eiffel tower the previous night, we decided we would miss the night time parade and go to the Eiffel tower instead. Also, it had started to rain pretty heavily and so we thought that was a good sign telling us to go to the Eiffel tower.
So we got back on the train and decided that the amount of stops and switching of trains would make us too late for the last entry of the Eiffel tower, again, and so we got off the train and jumped in a taxi which got us to the beautiful tower just in time. 
We went up the Eiffel tower to the second floor on the lift - because we were not allowed to climb up it or access the third floor due to the bad weather conditions - and went out to the balcony and looked over the breathtaking views of Paris. We took many photos of the views and of each other and decided this was a fabulous last night in Paris.
