    Disneyland Paris ~ A Dream come true

    Disneyland Paris, I had been dreaming about visiting since I was a kid. I did not think one day I would be visiting this magical land all by myself. I did not think I would be adding this visit to my accomplishments list. This was a dream that was confined to the dream world because well I thought I was too old for Disneyland Paris. Yes I know it was silly of me to conclude that, but in my defence I only saw kiddy side to it and not the fun it was.

    On one fine day, I was busy bustling at work when MoH messages me a Eurostar deal to Paris or Brussels. I had just returned from Brussels so ย I knew I wouldn’t be rushing back (even though I wanted to) so Paris it was. Now, in my fantasy world, I would have gone to Paris for the first time with MoH and he would propose. Obviously that didn’t happen, I took the bull by the horn and hopped on the train and went.

    I have realised that waiting on people to help you accomplish your dreams is a waste of a dream. I had very much wanted to go to Disneyland Paris with someone, but alone wasย awesome too. Was it awesome, abso-freaking-lutely!! This was one of my best decisions in life ever. Though my initial intention was to visit Disneyland Paris with someone I am glad I went alone.

    Take control of your dream and go for it

    I have mentioned many times on the blog how much I have learnt about myself since I started solo traveling. I will admit I was pretty scared to start off with, I thoughts survivingย in another country alone? But do you know what, I threw all common sense out the window and just went for it.

    I say to you, go go go

    Certain goals in life that take a lot of hardwork and others just take stepping out of your comfort zone. I am happy that I was able to travel to Disneyland Paris and experience everything Disneyland and also explore Paris.

    Have you go after a dream? Stepped out of your comfort zone?

      I haven’t been to Disneyland Paris for several years but went without children, It was fantastic, really magical and I have fond memories of it. x

      • November 17, 2016 / 7:02 am

        I too made some amazing memories and hope to share with the future kids

    3. November 11, 2016 / 6:18 pm

      I saw a great deal recently for euro disney with flights- but I think I’ll be too pregnant to take my little one.. ๐Ÿ™ But as soon as I’m not pregnant I’m definitely going to book it!

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:08 am

      I honestly didn’t know paris had a Disneyland! How fun would that be for a taste of something different?!

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:06 am

        Really!!! I thought it was as popular as Disneyland world lol but it’s definitely something different but similar at the same time

      Disneyland is one of those magical places that I think everyone MUST visit at some point in their lives.

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:04 am

        Absolutely, if possible definitely should visit

      Well done for going and achieving your dream! I was lucky enough to go to DisneyWorld on a press trip, so not technically alone, but not with anyone I knew, and I had a fab time.

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:03 am

        How awesome and thank you. It was amazing realising my dream

      November 10, 2016 / 3:05 am

      I absolutely agree! You do not need a travel buddy. Explore the world on your own. It is more fun and you can do anything you want.

        So true and something I have learned along the way

      What an inspiring post! I’m not a huge fan of disney (sorry), but this post really resonated with me. I am a stronger believer that just because YOU want to visit somewhere and loved ones don’t doesn’t mean it should stop you. Follow your dreams!

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:02 am

        Thanks Jodie, you have to follow your dreams indeed

    20. November 9, 2016 / 9:21 pm

      Oh wow it looks like you had an amazing time! I would love to visit Disneyland Paris one day myself.

      No matter how old you are, you just love Disneyland Paris. I am 43 and use my 6 year old as an excuse to go there. Looks like a fab time was had.

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:01 am

        You’re so right, you need to have a dream and I want to visit Florida too

      Kudos for realizing one of your dreams without waiting on anybody! I knew a couple (in their late forties) who didn’t have any kids (or grand kids) and who adored going to Walt Disney so, you’re right, it’s not just for kids!

      • November 12, 2016 / 7:00 am

        Thanks Lydia and loving the sound of that couple

      I haven’t been to Disney Land, Paris, though I have been to Paris. I have been to Disney Land and Disney World here in the USA and its awesome.

      • November 12, 2016 / 6:59 am

        I want to come visit the Disneys in the USA

    28. November 9, 2016 / 6:55 pm

      Like you said I am guilty of waiting for others to help me achieve my dreams and going to eurodisney is one of them! I need to take a leaf out of your book and just go!

      • November 12, 2016 / 6:59 am

        Hope you do soon for you luv, I learnt my lesson never again

    29. November 9, 2016 / 6:14 pm

      OMG I didn’t event know there was a disneyland in Paris. How great that you got to experience it.

      • November 12, 2016 / 6:58 am

        Really!!! I knew if that one before Orlando ๐Ÿ˜Š

        Awww thanks Shannon

    31. November 9, 2016 / 3:16 pm

      How wonderful that you got to go to Disneyland Paris and I think it’s great that you travel so much. My husband and I plan on traveling more when we retire. Now we take one trip yearly.

      • November 12, 2016 / 6:58 am

        Thanks Julie, I am happy to be traveling as often as I am.

    32. November 9, 2016 / 1:52 pm

      Good on you for doing this solo – I’m liking that you will have been able to spend time in the parts of Disney that you wanted to. We’ve never been but hope to too soon!

      • November 9, 2016 / 2:09 pm

        Thank you Helen, hope you are able to go one day

    33. Joanna McCaffrey
      November 9, 2016 / 1:33 pm

      It’s great you are doing all the solo travelling. I am sure it can be scary sometimes for a single female traveller, but you are right that we learn so much through travel. Not only about the places we visit, but about ourselves.
      I am writing this from Bali. So, yes, I went with a crazy dream. Me and my family (husband, baby and a pre-schooler) came here to stay for a year, before we are trapped in the school system, and can only travel when the school is out. Best decision in my life!
      Now the next crazy dream is to stay here permanently…

      • November 9, 2016 / 2:07 pm

        Now that is one amazing and wonderful crazy dream that I would love to take part in. How amazing it must be

    34. November 9, 2016 / 1:22 pm

      So fun! I went years ago when I was a teenager. I hope to get back someday. We love Disney!

      • November 9, 2016 / 2:06 pm

      I want to go, we are so close by and the flight from Vienna to Paris is a short one. Not sure about going with our toddler so young but maybe that really is a great time to enjoy it. Loved your pics.

      • November 9, 2016 / 2:05 pm

        I can’t say since I dont yet have kids myself but for my from 2 years old I would love to take them

    39. November 9, 2016 / 11:43 am

      • November 9, 2016 / 6:14 am

      Fabulous! I went to Magaluf a few years ago by myself as my dream was to work a season there, isn’t it great when you accomplish it. That rush when you are on your way, the excitement outweighs the nerves. So glad you got to tick something off your bucket list

      • November 9, 2016 / 6:13 am

        Thank you so much, it is definitely the best feeling ever when you accomplish a dream especially by yourself.
        Glad your dream came true too
