A short trip to Paris

Well, it's not the same as Disneyworld in Orlando but it's close to Italy and more or less ok. The point is that Paris is not the best sunny and hot city in Europe so cold wind from north happens. It's life.

We left from Bologna quite early in the morning of 24th November, just the right time to take a short nap on the plane and the we arrived in Paris. We had some delay in the baggage claim area due to Francesco's stroller but fortunately no strike in transport, just a lot of traffic on way to the resort area.

If I'm to be honest, the entrance of the parks was a mess; thousands of people waiting to buy tickets. Right, it wasn’t our lucky day but finally we got our tickets and enjoyed the rest of the day in some short line attractions. Francesco really had fun at Pirats beach and Alice's curious labyrinth even though he wasn’t at his top (days after we discover he got scarlet fever but this is another story).

The dinner at Dreamcastle hotel was good and huge (an "all you can eat" buffet for 27 Euro each and Francesco eat for free). I cant say the same for the room, I mean it was ok but it really didnt look like 4 start room.

On Sunday we came back at the park and got some nice attractions: Buzz Lightyear laser blast, Space Mountain: Mission 2, Honey I shrunk the audience, Autopia, Le Carrousel de Lancelot and Mad Hatter's Tea Cup.

In the evening we enjoyed Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. I strongly recommend this: horses, buffaloes, cows, cowboy and Indians make rodeo the live show while you eat, sing and partecipate in the show.

The short trip to Paris was over and on Monday Francesco and me flew back to Italy.
