If you are reading this it’s because you are seriously considering crossing the pond just to enter the magical world of Disneyland in it’s European version. No one is ever too old for Disneyland. Not only that — I personally believe it is actually healthy for all of us to visit every now and then. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris from London three times already and as soon as I leave I already want to go back again. It’s actually very easy to do — so let’s dive in.
How long to visit Disneyland Paris
Disneyland Paris has two parks: Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. If you have been to Disney World, Disneyland Park is the equivalent to the Magic Kingdom Park and Walt Disney Studios Park to Hollywood Studios.
It is totally possible to visit both parks in a weekend, it is also possible to visit both Disneyland Paris parks in just one day leaving Sunday free to visit Paris a bit and to go back home to London. I have done that in three occasions and left feeling satisfied. I was able to visit all the adult friendly rides this way and some kid friendly ones that seemed fun.
On my latest visit to Disneyland Paris, I was looking for the perfect accommodation. As I explain on my Disneyland Paris post, Disneyland Hotels are very expensive. There are other hotels around the Disneyland area which are a lot cheaper but typically budget chain hotels, so not really pretty or my style.
I was so glad I found Le Vieux Puits! It is a lovely B&B in a French maison located in the quiet town of Bry-sur-Marne. It has various rooms you can choose from which all seem really nice, but in my opinion I stayed in the best, most magical room available: The Gypsy Caravan.
Howdy readers! Are you up for some Wild West action right in the heart of London’s Chelsea? Moonshine Saloon invites you to spend an evening drinking amongst fellow cowboys in a clandestine saloon. It is an immersive experience where you will be part of a cowboy story while you sip incredible cocktails. It’s also BYOB — you’ll need to bring 35cl of your favorite spirit per two guests and the bartenders will craft three to four delicious drinks. This is how it went for us.
Upon arrival, we were directed to the local tailor and provided with a Stetson hat, jacket and cowboy bandana. We then entered the saloon and got comfy in our table.
Have you ever dreamt of becoming a pirate? Well you can now do so just for an evening and right in the middle of London at Pirates of the Hidden Spirit. This is your chance to become a pirate and drink cocktails at the same time!
Your life of piracy will begin in a ship docked somewhere in central London, location to be revealed once you purchase the ticket. Upon arrival, one of the members of the crew – a pirate – will greet you with a little bit of pirate talk and then escort you to the ship. You will leave your belongings in the cloakroom and receive your special pirate attire as well as meet other members of the crew.
