We set our alarm for 7am and did some last minute packing, and then dropped our bags at the Disney Express luggage room at our hotel. We had our last breakfast in the hotel and then said goodbye to Hotel Cheyenne as we made our way to Disneyland Park for our last morning in the Parks before our train back to Ashford International at 4.55pm.
As we arrived we made our way to Buzz lightyear laser blast for one final battle, which Mrs Geeky Dad won by a huge margin, making the score 2 – 2. We then went over to Fantasyland and rode the carousel and It’s a Small World. It was then that our little lady said she wanted to go on Phantom Manor. We were all apprehensive about this as she really didn’t like it last time, but she even said she would keep her eyes open throughout the attraction, so we decided to take a gamble. Now knowing what to expect, she really enjoyed the trip through the Manor and even found the laughing Phantom funny. I was really pleased she enjoyed it the second time as this is one of our favourite attractions.
It was now lunch time, so we headed over to the Cowboy Cookout for a final meal in the park. We all had either the BBQ ribs or BBQ chicken followed by a chocolate brownie or pecan pie. All of the food was lovely and probably the best counter service food we ate in the parks during this trip. There was also a country and western band playing in the restaurant which added to the atmosphere. With only a couple hours left to spend in the park we walked over to Discoveryland and did Autopia one last time. Our little lady really wanted to drive the car, so she had the steering wheel whilst I controlled the accelerator. By now we only really had time for one last attraction, so we decided to finish as we started the trip with one last ride through It’s a Small World.
Feeling a little blue about our holiday ending (although ready for a few days rest), we took a slow stroll down Main Street USA, turned around and took one last look at the castle and said goodbye.
We spent about an hour in Disney Village buying some last minute gifts in World of Disney and spent some time in the Lego Store where our little lady designed her own minifigures which we brought. We then went to the Earl of Sandwich and brought some food for the journey home. We love the sandwiches here as they remind us of our honeymoon at Walt Disney World. I ordered the Hawaiian and Mrs Geeky Dad had Le Frenchy.
We arrived at Marne La Valle train station an hour before our train departure and there was already a long queue. Apparently the incoming train was late, therefore passengers weren’t allowed down on the international platform. Once the train arrived the queue started moving, we were soon through security and on the train which departed about 30 minutes late. The journey to Ashford International was very quick (we only arrived 5 minutes late so the train clearly made up some time) and we were through passport control in time to catch our train home.
We all had a fantastic trip and we have already booked another trip back in June. We have really fallen in love with Disneyland Paris, no it’s not Walt Disney World, but it has it’s own charms and we can’t wait to get back.
