Here goes with what will probably be a very detailed trip report. We travelled with 2 adults and 2 girls aged 4 and 19 months. we stayed at the hotel l'elysse between sat 19th may 2012 and wed 23rd may 2012.
Alarm goes off at 5am, but i'd hardly slept and was up and out of bed at 4.58am! Had finished packing the night before so just had to get ready, load car and go! we just picked the girls up put of bed at 6am and put them in the car, pjs and all. We arrived at edinburgh airport at 6.20, but with a massive queue for check in and only 1 desk open for all easy jet flights i was panicking. all passengers for paris were called forward at 7am though, 10 min before check in closed.We took the girl's to the loo, got them dress and boarded the plane. arrived in CDG slightly early, collected luggage and walked to TGV station (its not as close to the terminal as i thought it would be) anyway we got there, realised i'd left all my cards at home and couldn't use the ticket machine, there was a massive queue in the ticket office and next train wasn't for 50 mins anyway so we decided to walk out for the VEA bus. while we were waiting a mini bus drove up offering a transfer for 50 euros ( would have costs us 51 on VEA) i am normally very cautious of this type of thing so was reluctant but he took another family of 4 to new york hotel in same the run as us and so we all jumped in and we were at the hotel l'elysee in 25 mins! he left us his card and we called him up and booked him for our return transfer also.
By this point it was about 1pm. our room was ready so we dumped our bags and went to val d'europe RER station as there is no shuttle bus over lunch. Unfortunatly i had put my passport and purse in the hotel safe before we left so had no id to swap our avios vouchers for park tickets at guest relations so i had to buy a 1 day, 1 park ticket, which was 61 euros. but we finally made it into the park and i am afraid by this point we were all very tired and had had a long day already. My oldest was not excited at all :( she just wanted to go to sleep) by the time we made it to the top of main street it was 1.30pm and the celebration train came past, this totally transformed the mood and we were good to go. We looked at winnie the pooh but decided not to queue to see him, instead we walked through the castle into fantasyland, dd wanted to go on dumbo straight away but a 40 min wait was too long for me, so we walked round and went on the storybook boats, only a 15 min wait. we bought an autograph book and pen ( 10 euros) and had a seat outside its a small world. snow white and cinderella walked passed on there way to ADC and the 3.30pm train went by bella norte. The tiredness had set in again so we decided on pizza planet for dinner but it was closed so we wandered round to cafe hyperion. we enjoyed some burgers and fries and ice cream, watched some cartoons and headed back to val d'europe. we nipped into the supermarket for some milk and bits and bobs and got stranded inside whist a massive thunderstorm raged outside. we later found out the storm shut down most of the attractions and cancelled the parade that day, so we are quite glad we made it an early night.
