Last weekend we were at EuroDisney, just outside of Paris. DB’s parents wanted to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary with the whole family so they decided to treat us all to 4 days at Disney. Hmmm. It would not have been my first choice, but what the heck! We went by train so at the very least I had a lot of knitting time. I don’t mean to sound so cynical. Maybe just a little.
The park itself was a lot better than I thought it would be. On Saturday and Sunday it was terribly busy and it was almost impossible to get something to eat and find somewhere warm to sit. If you went in the evenings, or early in the morning, it was much better. And also much colder. The temperature didn’t get much above freezing the whole weekend. Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip:
See all these people and how they are dressed? It was SO COLD!
I found this aspect of the trip very bizarre. I’m from California. Disney put his first park in southern California. He put the second one in Florida. What does this tell you? Disneyland is meant for NICE WEATHER. Walking around in the freezing cold, standing in line for rides, trying to get into a crowded restaurant as it starts to pelt down freezing rain – none of this sounds like fun to me. But you should have seen all the people doing just that! Droves of people. Some in ski clothes. Bizarre.
It was an interesting weekend, I’ll say that. And I’ll say no more.
If you have kids, I’d recommend it. It’s really Las Vegas for kids and you can’t go wrong with that.
