22nd - 26th January 2020
Time to beat those January blues and have a well-deserved break at Disney! Pack all the essentials, print or download your E-tickets, and don't forget your passport. Make sure you are at the departure point at least 30 minutes before the stated time on your E-ticket. Bring your favourite music and some DVDs, your comfiest pillow, and maybe a blanket too. We want your journey to be as comfy as possible. Tinkerbell's Top Tip: There will be a couple of stops along the way but bring plenty of snacks and drinks for the journey. We are travelling overnight and the service station shops are not always open.
You have arrived at the happiest place on Earth, welcome to Disneyland Paris! Check in is not until 2pm, but if we arrive early there is a place you can leave your luggage. All the rooms have been allocated before departure so you'll know who you are sharing with. Don't worry if you can't remember, the Outgoing reps will let you know! Peter Pan's Pick of the Day: If you haven't pre-booked your character breakfast or any other Disney extra, we recommend you do it first thing at the hotel reception to avoid any disappointment. Remember the reps are happy to help if you need it!
Once you are in your rooms settled and freshened up, why not head to Down Town Disney for some shopping and dinner? The welcome party will be hosted tonight, so get your glad rags on... this is the perfect chance to meet Disney fans from other unis across the country!
Up early and ready to start a magical day. In your welcome pack you will have your park tickets for BOTH Disney parks and your Earl Sandwich Shop breakfast voucher - that's right breakfast is FREE on Disney Days! Head outside the hotel to collect the Disney shuttle. Please remember these can be very busy and you will need to show your Disney ticket. If you don't fancy the shuttle then you can enjoy the pleasant stroll from the hotel to Disneyland. It will only take you about 15 minutes. Don't be as ditzy as Daisy Duck - only take one of your park tickets as you don't want to lose the other!
Your Park Hopper ticket gives you unlimited access to both the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios, so make sure you've planned your days so that you don't miss out on all the world famous attractions on offer... Buzz Lightyear's favourite coaster is Space Mountain - he said it's not to be missed! Leave yourself plenty of time to queue for the rides and for meeting Mickey and friends.
The closing times for the park will be in your information pack, including what time the closing show is and the firework display. Don't forget there are 2 parks and 2 closing shows, so make sure you see one of them each night! You will have worked up an appetite after a busy day of fun, and tonight is the night for the Planet Hollywood meal. So if you have booked it, get ready for a delicious three-course meal! If you don't fancy the hustle and bustle of Down Town tonight, you can order room service while watching your favourite Disney Movie, or have a few drinks at the hotel bar.
You have a Magic Hour morning which means you get to go into the park before the rest of the public... use this wisely! Cinderella's Secret: head straight into the park and collect your 'Princess Visit slot' at the Princess Pavilion ready to see them later on. Also remember to collect your breakfast from Earl again, he will be waiting!
By now you'll have been on every roller coaster in BOTH Disney parks. So it's Parade time! Check what time the parades are on and make sure you don't miss any... there is a Princess Parade outside the Magic Kingdom, the classic Disney Parade through the streets of Disney Boulevard, and don't forget the Marvel Super Heroes Show in Disney Studios! Flounder's Favourite: Get yourself down to the Magic Kingdom early so you can get a good spot for the closing firework display over Sleeping Beauty's Castle.
It's the last night in Disneyland, so after you've seen the closing firework display for a second time, make the most of the shopping area to buy some last minute souvenirs and presents to take home. Pluto's Pick: a 10 minute walk away from the hotel is a small supermarket/garage, which is the perfect place to pick up some snacks and breakfast for the journey home tomorrow.
All good things have to come to an end... Sadly it's time to head back to the UK and upload those amazing pics to make everyone jealous - don't forget to tag us @weareoutgoing ! It's not goodbye, just a see you later from Mickey and the gang here in the land where dreams come true.
Disneyland Paris is located 32km away from the French capital. 2 fun-filled parks and a huge Disneytastic shopping area, all within a 10 minute ride from your hotel. Disneyland is home to the legend that is Mickey Mouse and his host of friends, Sleeping Beauty's spectacular castle, and the famous parades. You can take a ride round on the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups, go flying with Peter and Tink through Neverland, or make a splash on the Pirates of the Caribbean water ride. Top Tip: get your fast track ticket for Space Mountain because you will definitely want to go on the roller coaster again and again! Head down to Walt Disney Studios, where you will find Pixar come to life. Meet Buzz and Woody, Sully and Mike, or go for a swim with Marlin, Dory and Nemo. Home to the Tower of Terror and some of the fastest roller coasters in Disney, it will be sure to get the adrenaline pumping! If you want a break from the parks, head to DownTown Disney. It is filled with shops bursting with everything Disney, or relax and enjoy a sit down dining experience in one of the many restaurants. You will never be short of things to do at Disneyland Paris!
