I have to admit that Disneyland played a role in deciding to visit Paris with the girls. We always thought that this would be a good age to go to Disneyland for the first time, and when we looked into the cost of going, we were shocked to see how expensive it is! That being said, a high-level searched showed us that it would cost just about the same amount to get a family of 4 to Disney, whether that be California, Florida or Paris. And of the three, it was a no-brainer which one we would rather do. Having 3 of the 4 airline tickets covered by miles, and knowing that the girls have always been obsessed about Paris (after all it's where Daddy proposed) sealed the deal. Disneyland Paris, here we come!
No doubt Disney knows how to do entertainment. We didn't do many "thriller" rides (we used the girls' ages as an excuse, but in reality it had more to do with the length of the lines), but there was still enough of the smaller rides to fill the day. The highlight was the parade, where Addie got to tell Baloo the Bear a secret and some pirates rummaged through Ellie's hair. Our favorite ride was the Peter Pan because flying over London looked so "real." The girls gave their best attempt to pull out the sword in the stone.
All in all the day went by quickly, with just a bit of madness.
Last, but not least, I don't think that Addie would ever forgive me if I forgot to mention the dragon. By far, her favorite part of the park, we visited the dragon 4 times (mostly because the route was convenient). At first she wasn't sure what to think because the dragon looked so real, but it didn't take long for her to start obsessing about whether or not we'd get to see him again. And again. And again.
