Recently I’ve been watching a lot of Disney vlogs on YouTube. My current favourite channel being SeeYaRealSoon. I also recently found out that many college students vlog their Disney College Program experience which is very interesting to watch. And all these videos have made me want to look back at some of my Disney memories.
My first trip to EuroDisney was in 1993. However we have no photos or video from this trip, which is really annoying as I know my dad filmed some of it. I have seen that video! However this was before digital cameras, the internet and YouTube so it has pretty much been lost forever. But I do know that 3 year old me was not impressed with having to wait with my dad while my mum went off to do other stuff.
1998. EuroDisney has been renamed to Disneyland Paris and I have very few memories of this trip. Although I do remember going on Big Thunder Mountain with my dad during the fireworks because why would you want to watch fireworks when you could ride roller coasters and watch fireworks.
Our holiday in 2006 was very last minute. The entire trip was totally dependent on us being able to get Eurostar tickets. I remember being in high school and waiting on the phone call from my mum to say if we were going. It ended up being a good holiday, a relative had died over the summer so it was nice being able to spend time together as a family.
I love going to Disney and meeting the characters. However they scare me. One time my parents took me to see Postman Pat and I cried. So my mum and I are on Main Street USA just waiting to meet up with my dad and sister. Suddenly a monkey appears and sits down next to me. Now this particular monkey had a massive group of kids following it around and for some unknown reason it decides to sit down next to me. Possibly the one person that is actually scared of him. Thanks monkey. Oh and I’m almost certain my mum asked the monkey if it was okay to take a photo. But I may have just imagined that.
Writing this post has made me realise its been too long since I last went to Disney so if anyone is looking for a Disneyland/ Disney World/ EuroDisney travel buddy I volunteer.
