4 Nights In Disneyland Paris || Travel

 So December was the best month of 2016 for me! Not only was it full with Christmas markets and cosy shopping trips, but it also meant I finished work for 19 days and got to relax and enjoy my Christmas break with friends and family. For 4 of those days, my boyfriend and I travelled to Disneyland Paris and celebrated the festivities with Mickey and Minnie!
We have been twice together in the past (I've posted a Tips To Make Disneyland Cheaper post if you want to see it) and absolutely love it. We are in no way Disney 'pros' but I just wanted to share my experience with you, basically so I can relive it again! We flew on Sunday with Jet2 straight into CDG airport, we booked a package holiday as we stay in the Relais Spa Chessey in Val d'Europe, which is literally 5 minutes drive from Disney. The rooms are lovely and all the staff are helpful, there's also a free shuttle to and from Disney (last one is at 11:00pm) which is an amazing service. Our flight landed at 8:30pm so we got a transfer (ZIP transfer) to the hotel and crashed out for the night!
As we have done both parks before, we thought we'd start with Walt Disney Studios. Obviously, we went at Christmas time so  the parks were really busy but we prepared for that before we went. It was pretty cold so we headed straight for the shops to pick up some Earmuffs and then to the Tower of Terror. The bigger rides were actually quieter, Crush's Coaster had a queue of 120 minutes pretty much the whole time. We spent the day soaking up the atmosphere and basically having fun. Lunch was a quick burger fix and we headed to Disney Village for tea and cocktails.
On Tuesday we went straight into Disney, we got up and ready for 9:00am and managed to beat a few of the queues. Big Thunder Mountain is one of my favourite rides and I was crazy excited that the new revamped version opened the day before our trip. Unfortunately, the ride did keep breaking down but luckily us 'fastpassers' managed to get on it without too much of a wait. Again, the rollercoasters had significantly less wait time, hello 5 minute queue for Indiana Jones! We booked Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (the 6:30 pm showing) so we had that to look forward to. It was amazing and definitely worth it, I'll admit I was pretty tired before tea but it gave me a little energy boost! We then finished there, did a little bit of shopping and caught the Disney Dreams fireworks #magical
Our final full day was a kind of easier day! We floated about each park doing the rides we really wanted to do again. In the hotel the night before we decided we would just wait for rides we wanted to do again and really it went quite quick. The shuttle driver had said it was the busiest day he had seen in years so you can imagine the queues! We visited Earle of Sandwich for lunch which was incredible and The Rainforest Cafe for tea - it's quite a tradition of ours! It was really lovely to have a chill day and appreciate the beauty of Disney, we got a good look at all the decorations and really embraced the atmosphere.
Our final day was filled with shopping (#sephorahaul) and flying home :(! Disneyland was truly amazing and i'm already looking at a visit this year eek! The weather was pretty cold and the crowds were rather large but it just added to the atmosphere. Would I go again in December? I'm not sure, i'm aiming for October as I think that would be the perfect time of year.

What's your favourite holiday?
