Our next full day was an opportunity to head to Disney Studios for another full day of Disney fun. The weather had improved by this day, so it was much easier and more pleasant to be outside wandering around the park. This park is much more tailored towards the larger attractions so me, being the pregnant one, had to sit a number of rides out. However, I did get to ride the Ratatouille attraction a couple of times (it’s advised pregnant women don’t ride, but I loved it) and I wasn’t stopped from having an awesome day enjoying the atmosphere and all the new things that had been built since our last visit. It felt like it had changed hugely with the addition of the Toy Story and Ratatouille portions of the park, and I adored all the theming that goes into these areas; they make up some of my favourite photos of the trip ties some of the Pixar titles into the park perfectly. The Mickey and the Magician stage show that was taking place in the Animagique Theater was incredible and definitely worth at least one viewing.
We headed over to Disney Village at the end of the afternoon and had a lovely meal at King Ludwig’s Castle, followed by another go at shopping. We didn’t buy a huge amount, not by the standards I’d managed on my honeymoon to Walt Disney World back in October 2015, but we came away with a few lovely mementos to enjoy and remember the trip by. We also had some drinks in the Sports Bar, which was a nice, relaxing end to a long day. We resisted the urge to jump up and join in on the karaoke, but it was still enjoyable to enjoy some entertainment and have some more adult socialising time after being in the parks for a few days. There were times we considered going off-site to enjoy some of the other drink spots of the resort, however, with our limited budget and one of our party being alcohol-free, we decided against it. Maybe something for next time.
Our final day meant we could enjoy another (almost) full day in the resort, so we went back to both parks to enjoy our favourites attractions and soak the Disney magic in for a few last hours. The sun was out and it was a beautiful day, so we took plenty more photos and enjoyed being outside for as long as possible, before having to make our way back to the airport. We had an amazing few days at Disneyland Paris and although it doesn’t, in any way live up to Walt Disney World standards, it was lovely to really enjoy some Disney magic closer to home. We’ll likely head back in a couple of years, before we decide to make the trip to Orlando, and I would still recommend it to friends and family, it was the perfect choice for one last girly trip before I become a mum late this summer.
