Anticipating A Visit to Disneyland Paris During the 30th Anniversary

Anticipating A Visit to Disneyland Paris During the 30th Anniversary

In almost two weeks my wife and I will be heading to Europe. For my wife this is her first trip as we see the United Kingdom and France. For me it is a returning trip, but as it relates to visiting Disneyland Paris, it has been some 17 years since I last visited. I’m anticipating this trip and excited to not only take in all that is precious and beautiful about this park, but to be able to see things I haven’t had a chance to see before. I’ll walk through both the Disneyland Paris park and the Walt Disney Studios park to outline places that are new that I haven’t taken in before–even places you may have never heard of. I’ll also talk about the resort end of the experience. Plus, I’ll discuss things some really wonderful things I may be missing as a part of this experience, because I was too late, or too early (i.e. Avengers Campus).

The outline for this podcast along with photos and more are below. But the podcast carries the narrative and is available on PodbeaniTunesSpotify,  and ListenNotes. Please subscribe to the podcast and to this website so you can be notified of upcoming posts and podcasts! 

Be sure to check out What We Love About Disneyland Paris, which focuses on the original park in larger part.
