The title is seriously all I really need to sum up the day I had.
So yesterday my father and I got on the RER for the first time, thank goodness I’d read the guidebook or I would have gotten on the wrong train. Just a heads up, if you’re going to Paris and you intend to travel using the RER line first find out exactly where you want to go and then whilst at the RER station look at the big black board, check to see if you’re destination is lighted up.
We were headed to Marne-la-Vallée - Chessy station so this was what the board looked like when we got there.
This is the right train because our destination was lighted up, voila! Simple.
Anyhoo, the ride was lovely once the rush hour group left and we were in the outskirts of Paris more or less. Do take note that if you’re traveling out of main Paris you’ll need a different kind of ticket (we’ve made this mistake twice now).
Here’s a photo to tell you where we were.
My father and I managed to score some really affordable tickets on the train ride down and thought why not? So yes, I suppose its kind of a shame to spend a beautiful day in Paris at Disney Land/Studios but honestly I don’t regret it. Disney Land/Studios is fun and silly and I had a kick ass time scaring myself half to death on pretty intense roller coasters fulfilling the adrenaline junkie urges that have been passed down from my father to me.
- Aerosmith Rock’n’Roller Coaster
(Yes there’s a loop, no it isn’t bad, Aerosmith triple yes, hell yes you’ll want to go again)
- Stunt show in Disney Studios
(Fun for all)
“Ohai, I’m a car driving along as a car- WHY AM I FLYING OH GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING HOW DID I GET HERE?”
- Tower of Terror
(If you have the balls)
- Star Tours
(If you’re a Star Wars geek like I am you’ll enjoy the kitschy nature of this simulation ride)
- Space Mountain: Mission 2
(As many times as you possibly can, I only managed to get on twice because of time constraints but oh my good god it was amazing! Click this link to watch the virtual version of the ride.
It has really brilliant sharp turns, a big loop, drops, a corkscrew that made me scream ‘THIS IS AWESOME OH MY *laughs* SO AWESOME FUN FUN FUN!’ just ask my dad, to top it all off it was all in the dark with flashing lights.
Seriously go on it if you can.)
Just a tip, if the map has an FP icon next to the ride location it means you can get a fast pass, it’s free, go get one it will save you the hassle of lining up for over half an hour to get onto your ride of choice.
Oh and the food I had was crap, seriously. Disney in the states is way better food-wise.
All in all it was fun as it should be and as usual Paris is making me exercise so my legs feel like they are about to fall off for real this time. More updates soon, drop me a message/comment/suggestion!
