Disney Adventure - Day 1

I feel like all i ever do is apologise about my bad blogging & how i haven't blogged in ages! I have litterally been so busy.. So once again i apologise for my lack of blogs but i have been on holiday.. so bare with me whilst i catch up! 

Me and my bestie (lifewithoutafunsponge.blogspot.co.uk) shortly decided that once we had got back from America we would book a cheeky mini break to Disneyland Paris! This first blog is mainly shopping and food, so you will have to keep an eye on my blog over the next couple of days for the real Disney magic! I just couldn't fit it all in one post...

Emma actually lives in London so we got a lie in before jumping on the Euro star from St Pancreas International which was very handy! Our train ride to Lille Europe was so quick & also full of people going to watch the football match, which wasn't ideal as they didn't serve ANY alcohol.. We changed at Lille Europe and caught another train to Disneyland Resort  (Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy). This literally comes up inside the Disney resort which is perfect!

We headed over to the Disney Village which was about a 2 minute walk from the train station in search for a quick snack and some wine as we hadn't eaten since the morning.. We ended up in an American Diner having a massive meal and drinking cherry coke.. this was not the wine and snacks we originally planned out but how can you resist a cheeseburger and a cherry coke? The American Diner was called 'Annette's Diner' it was decorated like something out of Grease and the servers even wore roller blades which was pretty cool! The food was delicious and the service was super quick, i was really surprise as it does look a little run down from the outside & somewhere you would go with kids for a quick meal. I would say it wasn't even that pricey at about 13 euros for a massive burger and chips!! I would 100% recommend.. expecially if you just want a quick bite to eat. However, we did walk past the next day and the que was MASSIVE! So i would advise booking, i think we went at a weird time and got very lucky!



 As we hadn't even checked in to our hotel yet we decided to head over to the taxi rank to try and get a taxi to our hotel. We were both surprised at how much he charged us 15 euros when his meter said 6! It was literally so close to the park! Naughty French taxi man! Our hotel was such great value for money (I got no photo's because I'm a bad blogger and was too excited for what was about to happen - Sephora & Michael Kors..!) It worked out at about £179.00 including all city taxi.. this was for 3 night stay for 2 people in a small studio apartment equipped with a double bed, flat screen TV, little kitchen area, en suite & a free Disney shuttle which was a massive perk (even though we decided to walk both days) we then discovered our hotel was about 2 minutes from a massive shopping centre including an outlet store...!!
 

 The little purpose built outlet with restaurants was really pretty, they had court yards surrounding the shopping centre and also inside, the shopping centre itself is called Val d'Europe! If your in the area i would check this out, it's a great place to go to kill some time and do some shopping. However, the outlet is open on a Sunday but the inside shopping mall isn't so make sure you go Monday - Saturday. After we had done some shopping we had a lovely glass of red wine & headed back to the hotel for an early night in preparation for our busy 1st day at Disney!
