When we planed our trip, we didn’t include a visit to Paris Disneyland, however after mulling it over we decided to dedicate one day to it because Teddy wanted it more then anything else and we were going to have something to compare with, when we get to one of the US Disney resorts later on. I decided to go to Disneyland Park only and skip Walt Disney Studios Park because the activities there are mostly for children older then Teddy. Even though it was the beginning of April and a weekday, Disneyland Park was crowded as Canada's Wonderland on firework night.
Teddy was a Pirate - thanks to loose top that was big enough to put over winter jacket. It was chilly and sunny day. When we got in we met Duffy and Teddy play with him. Suddenly our attention was caught by Disney’s 20th Anniversary Celebration train with Mickey Mouse clubhouse gang. Teddy was happy to see all his TV friends live. Then we spent some time to meet Winnie the Pooh - to hug him and take few pictures.
As pirates we could not miss a walk by Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing and took a ride around Old West sights of Frontierland. In Fantasyland we took a teaspoon of spin and a twist of twirl in one of the Mad Hatter’s giant Tea Cups.
Then we enjoyed a great view of Disneyland Park as we swoop and soar with Dumbo Flying Elephant. Teddy wanted to meet Mickey, but the line was so long that it could take 2-3 hours and could be closed even before our turn, because it has a strict closing time.
We learned that if you want to go to Disneyland - you need to reserve at least one week to cover everything. Next day was dedicated to Les Invalides, Musée de l'Armée, Musée Rodin and Musée d'Orsay.
