The trip from England took quite a while and we left Dover with two hours delay. Alex was pretty excited about his ferry trip and we had time for some proper English lunch as well – fish & chips for papa and ham sandwich for Alex. The journey to Paris (3h to Disney parks) was reasonably uneventful bar a burning truck half way through! What a sight! We finally met up with granddad Bodo and off we went to Disneyland Paris! First adventures included the small world boating, a maze, Disney castle and adventure land (hello pirates!). After a quick dinner at silver spur steakhouse (expensive & slow service, food average) Alex was still not tired and we ventures to a ghost house. Fabulous. Then off to see buzz lightyear to everyone’s enjoyment and then a brief glimpse at the closing show … But heavy rain convinced to get back to the car and off to Davy Crockett ranch. Great first day.
