Disneyland Paris Holiday Photos

September 11th, 2012

Some pictures from our trip to Disneyland Paris last week via Hull and Bruges. We had a great time away and it was nice to get another reasonable trip in the RX-8. Bruges was a really nice surprise as well, could have done with an extra day to explore.

  • A typically wet Isle of Man day waiting for the ferry
  • The view of the marina from our hotel room in Hull - the noise from a rowdy wedding when we got to the hotel helped us get an upgrade to an executive room :o)

As expected Eva frowned then pulled Minnie's whiskers and then tried to bite her nose!

  • "No, I've got your nose!"
  • "I'm Eva, pleased to meet you"
  • "So, did this thing make dinner then?"
  • Goofy, or "Dingo" in France. So this is Dingo and the Baby for all you Family Guy fans.
  • Jessie, just a bit scary.
  • Disney Village and the Panoramagique helium baloon
  • Eva sees her new Minnie stuffed toy for the second time. The first time wasn't photographed but her smile was awesome.
