I went to Disneyland for the first time when I was little. I think I was four years old, so I cannot remember a lot of my visit. A few years ago, I went again for my study and I had so much fun. I used to watch all the Disney films when I was little (and sometimes I still do…), so I can say that a theme park like this, is really something I should go to. In this article I will give you five reasons why you should go to Disneyland Paris at least ones in your life.
1. You get in a fairy tale atmosphere which make you forget everything else for a moment
Since Disneyland Paris is focused on radiating a fairy tale, you can get totally lost in a whole new world. Therefore, I think this is the most important reason why you should pay a visit to Disneyland. You can forget everything for a while and step into a new world with excitement, magical and all your favourite Disney movies.
2. You can meet all your Disney figures from your childhood (and from now..)
Most of the time, your favourite Disney figures are walking around in the park and if you are lucky, you can get a picture with one of them. Furthermore, in the afternoon there is a parade whereby all the Disney figures get with their co movie figures and a vehicle that fits their theme of movie.
3. You can eat all kinds of different food in all kinds of different themed restaurants
There are so many restaurants in Disneyland. The nice thing is that all the restaurants do have a theme as well. For example, you can dine at the restaurant from the movie Ratatouille. There are dining possibilities from luxurious to easy and quick.
4. You can release your excitement by going into all the attractions
The park is very big and there are so many attractions to go in: attractions for children till attractions for adults, there is something for everyone. Of course these attractions also all have their own theme of Disney movie and that makes it even more exciting. Some even play the story of the movie in the attraction itself, like Pirates of the Caribbean. My personal favourite is the Space Mountain. I love roller coasters and at this one, your ride has to compete to the other ride: red competes to blue. I went several times in this roller coaster and I just loved it. Every now and then, they also add a new attraction to the park. ‘Ratatouille: The Adventure’ is for example one of the newest attractions.
5. You can watch a beautiful light show by night at the famous Disney castle
Only for the Disney castle itself you would go to Disneyland Paris. It is such a beautiful castle and the image of Disneyland. At night, there is a light show which you can watch at the Disney castle. During this show, you can watch a timeless Disney story, while the castle will be lightened up by lasers and fireworks. Definitely worth it! Personally, this was my peak during my time at Disneyland.
And what my favourite Disney movie/figure is? Ariel from the Little Mermaid. This movie is based on the short story, written by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. A little fun fact about the Little Mermaid: In Copenhagen you can find the Little Mermaid statue. This small and unimposing statue is in Copenhagen an icon and a major tourist attraction. The Little Mermaid statue is based on the fairy tale of Andersen and is made by Edvard Eriksen.
