We got home last night from Euro Disney, bruised, cold and tired but we loved every minute of the holiday! We had tears from the kids when it was time to go, but we have promised them that we will try the US Disney when our youngest is old enough to remember. We went on Tuesday for four days, and got there on the Eurostar.

When we arrived on Tuesday, we were shocked at how cold it was there, and there was a good layer of snow too. They still had all the Christmas decorations up and with the snow, it felt like a real christmas all over again. My wife and I packed loads of warm clothes for the kids but we didn't bother with much for ourselves, so we were freezing all the time. We knew it was going to be cold but not THAT cold!:)

That was real ice on the waterfall, just as an indicator of how cold it was.

Our eldest and me in FrontierLand, we thought that this part of the park was one of the best looking.

Apart from the family pics, this one was one of my favourites I took.

My wife and our youngest waiting for a ride to start, she loved it when it got going but wasn't so sure before-hand. For toddlers, there aren't that many rides, but there were plenty of shows and sights to see to keep our youngest amused.

Me and the kids meeting Pluto(?) Our youngest was a bit wary of him.

Mickey and Minnie in the Disney Winter Wonderland show, which the kids loved! All the shows were great. One of the best for the kids was a Stitch show, where Stitch appears on a massive screen and interacts with the audience.

Our eldest got a laugh out of me on Friday, on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which we both went on. She was really scared before we went on, as they set the atmosphere with a creepy video while you wait. She chickened out on Thursday, but decided to go on on our last day. When the ride started, I was holding her like there was no tomorrow, while it shot up and free-falled repeatedly:p

We heard some bad things about Euro Disney before we went, regards the quality and pricing of food, and the quality of some of the hotels. I don't agree now after going, we spent no more on food than if we had gone to the coast or theme parks here in the UK. There is alot of fast food joints, but there are also some decent restaurants too.

All in all, although we never got on all the rides and shows, due to it being so cold and there being some large queues, we done most of them and we loved it. :)

Cheers,
Stuart

Speaking to you on msn you sounded like you had a great time mate, but it's nice to see you back safe and sound. It's hard to see who was having the most fun - you or your daughters :D. Euro Disney sure looks like a pretty spectacular place to vist too (y) :)
