Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios Park at Christmas – Day 2

Our second day at Disneyland had come around and Chris and I had planned for Walt Disney Studios Park in the morning till early afternoon and the main park for the rest of the day.

We got up bright and early at 7am and took the shuttle bus down to the park vicinity and got breakfast at Earl Of Sandwich. We didn’t eat too much as we wanted to get on the rides asap.

It was my very first time being in the studios park and I was really looking forward to it, especially the exclusive rides like Ratatouille and Crush’s Coaster.

It was raining slightly but no where near like it was the day before so I got to wear my Marie ears instead of the Alien hat.

The one and only iconic Mickey Mouse!

Once again, it all felt like a dream. I’d always seen pictures of this place and it was surreal standing in it myself.

First ride we went on was Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. I’d read up a lot on this ride and it was one of the newer ones in the park as well as being a trackless ride which increased the hype around it.

The queue wasn’t massive, we were in line for only 20 minutes.

It was incredibly fun! We had to wear 3D glasses (or something similar) and they were quite uncomfortable on top of my actual glasses but I managed to hold onto it pretty well. It was my first trackless ride which was a very cool experience!

After Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Chris and I headed to Crush’s Coaster which was another important one on our rides list. It was by far the longest queue we were in throughout our entire 3 days there – I think we were in line for almost 2 hours! It was one of the best rides though, a solid 10/10 and I would highly recommend it.

We then headed into Toy Story Land to soak in all the cute decorations.

Rex was a tall boi! Or am I just tiny?

We sat on the Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin while we were there even though it was more of a kiddy ride but there was no queue at all. The ride was actually more fun than expected! I think I might’ve screamed.. once.

Chris and I headed back to the main park after wandering around and taking some pictures just in time for the Christmas parade to begin. We didn’t get the best view once again but it was a lot of fun.

I even caught the attention of Woody at one point as I put on my Green Alien hat again and I guess he ‘recognized’ me, he kept waving and trying to get my attention for ages while I wasn’t sure whether or not he was actually waving at me. It was the cutest moment ever and my boyfriend and I wouldn’t stop talking about it.

We got a fastpass for Buzz Lightyear’s Laser Blast which was sooooo fun. We got to hold little lasers and shoot at targets throughout the ride. Chris earned about 4 times as many points as I did which was embarrassing.

After that, we had a bit of a slow wander to see the park decor which I love.

One of the most beautiful restaurant signs.
If only all houses looked like this!
Chris looking suave with Mike!
Another beautiful restaurant sign!

Thankfully the weather cleared up and skies were getting brighter on our last full day there.

We managed to catch a little bit of fake snow (soap) whilst walking to get a Mickey biscuit from the shops on main street. If you’re there at the right time, just listen out for very bell chimes and head outdoors – snow will begin falling from the sky and it was a very nice experience even if it was only for 5 minutes.

Sadly didn’t manage to get the sword out of the stone 😔

Chris and I struggled to find good Disney-themed snacks as most of the snack stalls were closed, I’m guessing due to the rain, and I didn’t get the cute ice creams I wanted but as we walked out of the main park to go into the Disney Fashion store, I saw a store selling candied apple! Yes, I did get it all over myself and yes I enjoyed myself thoroughly. 

Got a Disneyland Paris embroidered t-shirt from the store for €29 and started wearing it immediately, it was the most comfy material ever and just thick enough for the chilly weather. 

As it was our last evening in Disneyland, Chris booked us a table for 2 at the Rainforest Café which had already closed down in Singapore for over 10 years now and I was stoked to finally be dining there again. 

Had the best pasta dish ever and Chris had a huge beef burger, everything was delicious. I really liked where we sat as well, we were tucked behind the trees next to some animatronic monkeys that came to life every 15 minutes or so (they sometimes made me jump!) and I was as entertained as some kids were.

It was an extremely tiring but satisfying day, I got to live out my dream of visiting the best place in the world with my best friend and partner and we went back to our lovely hotel room beaming, but also sad that all this was about to end. 

We did a bit of packing, had a quick shower, ordered some room service drinks and went off into dreamland pretty much as soon as our heads hit the pillow. 

It was our final half-day tomorrow and we wanted to be fresh enough to do everything else that remained on our to-do list 😊 Stay tuned for our final day of Disney!

  1. I’m gutted I missed out on Crush’s Coaster! We visited this park on our last day and we were quite limited for time before we had to leave so it was either see the rest of the park or queue for two hours! If I go back I would definitely like to spend more time in the Studios park!


  2. I loved reading about your trip to Disneyland! I’ve always wanted to visit there. Your photos are so cute xx

  3. I never researched about Crush´s Coaster so I was not prepared at all about not actually seeing anything so I screamed alot, but when the shock passed after a couple of hours I really thought it was so much fun. And hey the zig zag spin you just had to try out, like there was not a choice at all haha. I did like the Ratatoille ride so much, probably one of my fave rides of the trip not counting on Peter Pans Flight. And all those parades was a dream. We had a special Halloween one and one of the guys in the parade made shure that he made my visit a hell when he saw me, scaring me all the time when I didn´t see him. Loved ever minute of it I tell you and he will probably be the thing I remember most hahaha


    • Crush’s Coaster is honestly SO FUN! It was worth the crazy queue we had to endure. kind of wish I had the chance to sit on it twice now 😂 I hope to visit Disney during halloween period one day x


  4. Disneyland Paris looks beautiful! I live in Florida so I’m familiar with Disney World and its magical experience. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos and amazing trip. Hope to experience Disney in Paris some day.💕


  5. I visited Disney Paris two years ago. I was very surprised about how different it is from Disney in Florida. Mostly I felt like in Florida they have so many vendors selling souvenirs and food everywhere you go and it was not like that in Paris. Thank you for sharing your experience. It was fun to be reminded about our trip there.


    • When I was in Paris, there weren’t many stalls open so I couldn’t really get cute Disney themed snacks, but I guess it was because of the weather – it did rain a lot!
