Disneyland Paris 2016 - Part 1

We Are Going To Disneyland! Again!

Sunday - September 11th 2016

Claudia and I are really big Disney fans. So far we visited Walt Disney World twice, did a Disney Cruise in 2015 and earlier this year we visited the original Disneyland in Anaheim, but our Disney craziness started with Disneyland Paris ten years ago. Since then we have visited our "home park" seven times and now we are also proud owners of annual passes. Our current annual pass was about to expire and so we decided to go to Disneyland again. So Sunday early morning we hit the road towards Paris, where we arrived in the afternoon. Like during our last visits, we stayed at the hotel Relais Spa Chessy again. The hotel is located in Val d'Europe, which is only one RER train station away from Disneyland. However since last year the hotel offers a free shuttle service to the themeparks. The hotel itself is very clean and has nice rooms with a small kitchen, but the shuttle service and the cheaper hotel rates were the main reasons why we chose the Relais Spa Chessy again.

After a nine hours drive we finally arrived at the hotel, checked in and dropped our luggage off in our room. Later we took the shuttle service to Disneyland and walked straight to Adventureland to ride Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril as often as possible, because it was about to close for the rest of the week due to refurbishments. We rode it four times in a row, but then it was time for a welcome beer. So we headed out to Disney Village to get some drinks at the Sports Bar. On the way out I bought my first souvenir, an Indiana Jones T-shirt, and we had dinner at the Hakuna Matata Restaurant. Claudia and I both got the salad and Hakuna fries. We were really lucky weather wise, because even in the evening we were able to sit outside. A few beers at the Sports Bar later we took the shuttle back to the hotel and called it a day.
