C’est parti for some Frenchie adventures!

Book your Eurostar Tickets

No need to stress out about driving and crossing the border. Eurostar is fab. From Ashford, it took us less than 2 hours to arrive at the destination in the comfort of the train. Le plus, while you wait to board le train, it is literally full of kids so your little one can make new friends and you can catch up on Facebook! Free and easy! I swear Baba found 2 friends in less than 20 minutes. Life is so easy for toddlers sometimes…

Once on the train, it is comfy and you can enjoy some Merlot while le bébé is:

  1. Playing with his dad, pulling his hair, climbing on him instead of you
  2. Enjoying some Disney cartoons on the tablet
  3. Not leaving his dad alone. You are loving this new freedom, right? Top up your glass now 🙂
  4. Eventually falling asleep

More wine, more social media, more gossip magazines! Great start to the holiday!

Super excited to visit the park as soon as we arrived!

Stay at the Disneyland Hotel

Don’t bother with a cheaper option. You will regret it and you will miss out on so much fun! The staff is amazing, the place looks like a castle from one of their movies and you get free chocolate every day when your room is cleaned! Hurrah! I can actually get used to this kind of life…

Plus the bathroom is super gorgeous (we had little piggies on the wall! How fancy is that!?) with a maxi king size bed. Super handy if you decide to have a big family cuddle!

And dairies too, as Baba loves them!

The breakfast is délicieux. Baba made the most of the brioches and had a couple of Frenchie madeleines.

Bring it on Mickey! I am ready!

Frenchie Mummy had no choice but to forget about her diet (why to make your life more difficult than necessary, right?) and she secretly enjoyed the extra cuddles with Mickey while eating dinner at the Invention Restaurant.

Some flirting with Minnie took place…

Book a table while you stay at Disneyland Paris. It is worth every penny!

Hurrah! Tigger is babysitting tonight!

While you stuff your face (literally what Baba and I did! Pourquoi pas!?), Disney characters come around for cuddles and photos. Once more, c’est merveilleux as you can have more wine. The little one is too busy with all of that!

Posing with Walt Disney. When two legends meet each other…

And if you want some fancy cocktails, head off to the Fantasia café for a fab atmosphere.

So much fun at the Fantasia Café!

Not to forget the pool with the spa! You can sneak off there for a little sauna while your other-half take care of the kids.

Invite some family to take over

If yet, you have not had enough free time, why not taking your mum with you so that she can look after the kiddies and you can do the grown-up rides? Don’t forget to book some fast track tickets so that you don’t have to queue 1 hour or more!

Family members are also handy to entertain les enfants while you have a coffee and you can have a good catch up. Both Frenchie Mummy and Frenchie Granny had some serious conversation!

‘Blah Blah Blah..’. Now imagine it in French!

Don’t miss the Parade or the Nighttime Show

We know all the famous rides and I will not bore you with those. The Tea Cups are fun, the Buzz Lightwear Laser Blast will get you super competitive and Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain will make you want to date a Star Trooper or peut-être un Jedi?

5 Tips to Enjoy Disneyland Paris with Toddlers, Disneyland Paris, The Season of the Force, Disney
We went on so many famous rides!

But what you need to see is the Parade so that you can say you ticked the box. Personnellement, je préfère the Nighttime Show. Easy to find a good spot to see it, you can even enjoy it more than once if you are staying a couple of nights! We did not make it that far as the bar at the hotel was very tempting…

They have it all to entertain kids!

Enjoy the Season of The Force

Until the  25th March 2018, the most epic of Star Wars adventures takes over both Disney Parks with more intergalactic immersions than ever before.  This is the Season of The Force! And the entire Frenchie family loved it!

5 Tips to Enjoy Disneyland Paris with Toddlers, Disneyland Paris, The Season of the Force, Disney
Frenchie Mummy thought he was going to ask her out, but he was fast to go!
  • Grumpy Boyfriend got himself a new mug so that he can carry on dreaming that he is a Jedi
  • Baba had some intense conversation with his new Star Wars Teddy
  • And Frenchie Mummy enjoyed the First Order March! Well, she did not see much of it as she is too small but it sounded good!

I so felt the force! You know, the one that said that I needed more food :)

5 Tips to Enjoy Disneyland Paris with Toddlers- Last Randome Ones

  • Bring your own food if you want to avoid long queues in the restaurant. Maybe book it in advance if you can?

Be prepared to pack up the snacks!
  • Bring your own buggy. It can be a long day and your toddler will have some naps for sure!
  • Try the Train or the Boat. It is a nice break when you walk all day long!
  • Get yourself a souvenir but be careful when shopping! It is magical and you might get tempted! Literally, it was like Baba had no toys at all back home. He managed to come back with a lot of food, two new teddies, a bag full of toys and some Star Wars souvenirs! But the force was with Frenchie Mummy and she was a good girl! For once, she did not shop too much!
  • Book a character experience in advance. So magique!

Any famous person should go there once in their life!
  • Fantasyland is probably your best friend as there are more rides for this age range. If you have only one day, don’t worry about the Walt Disney Studio Park. It’s more for grown-ups in my opinion!

One day my prince will come… Oh no! Sorry I already have the grumpy version, right 🙂

I hope you enjoyed reading our 5 Tips to Enjoy Disneyland Paris with Toddlers. This short survival kit should keep you safe. Bring on the food, and le vin! After all, you are in France so you are allowed! That’s it!

    I would love to revisit Disneyland Paris – I loved it so much when I went with my friends when I was younger and would love to take the kids! The Disney Hotels are always the best option regardless of what park you visit – they tend to be pricier but are so much more convenient!
