Time for another pair of Disneyland Paris vlogs! We are already on to day three of the five-day trip, so it’s going along quickly. In day three, we wait for hours to meet Minnie Mouse in her special 25th anniversary outfit. Was it worth it? Just about!
We also went on some rides, did more character hunting, and saw the new castle stage show. This one features all the main characters, as well as some more rare ones. The highlights are definitely the enthusiastic dancers with their crazy hats to represent the different lands in the park. It is too much fun.
This was followed by a few more rides, and Daisy Duck popped up randomly, accompanied by Sleeping Beauty and her prince. It was really fun to meet them so unexpectedly without having to wait in line for very long. The secret characters come out of a few doors throughout the park, and we found them near the Casey Jr train ride. Unless you knew to look down there, you definitely wouldn’t happen upon them so it’s a good tip to remember.
In the afternoon, we went on one of my favourite rides – Big Thunder Mountain. Another character highlight was meeting a very intimidating Darth Vader, who I had never met before.
We had a chilled evening going on the rides in Fantasyland, then had a great moment watching the Princess show in front of the castle while munching on Disney popcorn. Yum! Next, we headed to the New York hotel for some cocktails before heading back to the hotel after another hugely successful – and very tiring – day.
Here we are. The end is nigh. It’s been a great trip, hasn’t it? I’ve loved being able to look back on these amazing memories every week. I was really happy with how all of the videos turned out since it was my first time vlogging a full two-week holiday. Filming all the memories came surprisingly easy, too. After a few days of getting into the swing of it, I found that my camera rarely left my hand and I didn’t need to think too much about what I was going to record next.
Will I vlog future trips? Without a shadow of a doubt, yes. There is so much more to see in videos that in still photos alone. I know that I will look back and watch these vlogs so many times in future, far more often than I would get out a photo album, so it was completely worth it.
I was always very conscious of enjoying the moment as well as recording it. I never sacrificed my view or enjoyment at the time to capture a better shot. Hence why there’s a fair bit of shaky footage every now and then from when I was dancing or caught in the moment. If I sacrificed that, then I would be sacrificing some of the fun as well and I definitely didn’t want to do that.
Time to stop being sentimental and get on with the last day. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series.
If you have, then I’ve got good news. I’m off to Disneyland Paris in April 2017 and I will be getting out my vlogging camera once again. Be sure to subscribe to my channel to be notified when those videos pop up. Plus, there is more to come later this year as well.
See you real soon!
Cinderella’s Royal Table was our most desired reservation restaurant of the entire holiday. At a cost of two dining credits each, it was also the most expensive. Did the food, atmosphere, and characters make it worth the cost? Read my review and watch the vlog to find out.
