I'm not a huge Disney fan. I mean I watched the films when I was younger but I'm not obsessed like it seems everybody else is. But when we were in Paris for the weekend, we decided we should go. We have already seen a lot of Paris, but had never been to Disneyland, so why not.
It feels weird giving Disneyland a bad review, but honestly, it wasn't my favourite.
I don't like scary roller coasters or rides, I don't like crowds, I don't like queuing.. which is basically all there is to do in Disneyland. I mean, I enjoyed some of the day, such as seeing the Sleeping Beauty Castle (which by the way, was a lot smaller than I thought it would be!) and seeing the Disney characters walking around the park. But I probably would have enjoyed walking around Paris more.
We went on several rides, some I hated, some I enjoyed. But for example, Crush's Coaster, we queued for over 1.5 hours for a 3 min ride..!! What a waste of time! And I didn't even enjoy it.
The worst one was Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain which I closed my eyes for and I literally had to concentrate on breathing as I thought I was going to pass out. When we pulled up at the end, I couldn't move as my body was in shock. I got off and was shaking and crying and I felt so travel sick, I could barely stand. Thanks to this one, I felt sick for the whole evening and even the next morning. It was horrible!
I enjoyed a couple of rides as they were slow and cute. My favourites were Ratatouille, Buzzlight Year Lazer Blast, It's A Small World and Pirates Of The Caribbean. These 4 were the ones that weren't scary, but not boring either.
I hate to give Disneyland a bad review as lots of people love it, but if you're like me and hate crowds, tourists, queuing and rollercoasters, maybe spend the day exploring Paris instead..!!
