(entri ni sangat panjang ok :P)
it was chura’s idea
i was reluctant at first.i dont fancy cartoons so that explains why.sue and tasha didn’t mind.rationally because we only hav 3 full days at Paris and i can’t find the reason why we should waste one whole day and EUR52(!) going to this childish place ha ha.expensive huh?but being the understanding friend that I am(masuk bakul jap), I agreed (ok angkat bakul).we were travelling in a group so majority rulez ;P
after all the drama (again,yours truly), in dec we bought the one day pass online – ada new year off.we got EUR52/head and believe me,it was a bargain!the tix price was actually EUR60 if u buy at the entrance itself.so kira jimat dalam RM40.banyak tu heh
we woke up soooo early that 27th Jan morning.mmg tiap pagi kul 5am dah takleh tido sebab mlm pjg sgt heee.we wanted to make sure that we arrive there just in time the gate bukak haha.mahal oh tiket tu.seminit pun takleh rugi.aci? 🙂
we took metro at Anvers and head to Nation to change from RER B(blue line to RER A(red line).the RER gerabak is a way bigger than metro’s and the system is quite complicated.we asked few local ppl just to confirm that we are heading to the Disneyland instead of to the other end hehe.
so cut the story short,we arrived the station(Marne-la-Valle) 9.00am and we were just few steps away from the main entrance,alhamdulillah 🙂 it was raining a bit tho
at 10am sharp,we went to the gate and the guard scanned our printed black and white tickets(thanks sue!) and off we begin our journey inside the theme park.we were a bit lost at first.so we took the “Guide to the Parks” leaflet and off we go.siap teramik yang french nya map.baca2 tak faham.rupanya ada english version.bimbo sungguh
so kami pun study map macam biasa.there are 4 Lands ie Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland. the main entrance is the MainStreet USA
we begin with the Frontierland.as mutually agreed, we focused on the “Big Thrills” and “What not to miss” first.then if time permits, we’ll proceed with the “Family Adventures” and “Fun with Lil Ones”.heheh
Big Thunder Mountain – superb.we all terhantuk2 like nobody cares.but the ride really awesome.almost similar to the Rolling Thunder,the one at genting.kat genting tu tiru kot.heh.they sell the jerit2 pix but we didnt buy it.instead, we snap the pix displayed.lol.masalahnya kenapa dalam gambar ni kitorang(kecuali chura) beriya padahal mat saleh depan tu ala2 berborak lagi.tak puas hati sungguh.huhu
then we had a walk.masa ni hujan macam dah lebat sikit.so kami berjalan2 saje.kabus pun makin tebal.sob
Pirates of the Caribbean – oh kat sini ada pirates tu.horror gak.mcm real.its a boat ride inside a cave.very dark.then here and there were harta karun and tengkorak.main ni baju basah gak la sebab kadang2 ada splash bagai.tapi best lah.even not that thrill.this one categorized as family adventure.after the ride we took the opportunity to take picture with the pirate.haha
Indiana Jones and Temple of Peril – wah yang ini sangat menakutkan.lebih takut dari yang kat Frontierland tadi.tapi tak sempat snap pulak masa atas ride
if i can still remember, this is the time when all the cartoon characters went out and we can find them almost everywhere.we manage to take picture with some of ’em.some of ’em needs us to queue yadayada and we dont want to waste our time tapi sebenarnya malu sebab yang beratur tu semua makbapak bwk anak2 diorang.
perut pun sudah lapar.energy bar yang bawak semua dah kehabisan.maka kami pun singgah di sebuah cafe yang ramai arab2 masuk.we had fish and chips plus tomato soup.wah sedap sebab dah lama tak makan kenyang.ngeh..
and this fantasyland, we went to the famous Sleeping Beauty Castle, the Alice in the wonderland Labyrinth, the choc cake sweets house, the jack and the beanstalk etc etc you name it.very excited ok.its like i was in my childhood again.kira macam i ni lebih2 pulak padahal aritu beriya takmau pi disneyland heheh.in this ‘land’, most of the rides are for kids.so we just take our own sweet time, went to each famous disney character.plus, we just had our lunch,full stomoch,not advisable to go on thrill rides huhu..
we played the
1. Le Carrousel de Lancelot (merry go round)
2. Dumbo the Flying Elephant
3. Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups
4. Peter Pan’s Flight
coolness.ohhoho dan disinilah tempat di mana cik aizura kita terkena taik burung!mmg marah betulla.ala darling,bukan selalu nak kena taik burung disneyland.sekali seumur hidup kot.so kami pun take a break la dengan meneman cik ai ke toilet untuk membasuh ‘hasil buangan’ tersebut.huhu.marah sungguh cik ai 😛
selingan : so we head to perform our zuhr-asr prayer.truth is,its always a challenge when you have to perform solah in this/any non-muslim friendly country(read:no room/surau/musollah).but alhamdulillah,despite this, we managed to perform each solah anywhere,everywhere ie on the boat, at the airport corridor(amik sudut sikit lah) etc etc.yang penting,bawak kompas sekali.dan alas yang bersih.there was once we use the map to be the sejadah.takpalah,yang penting kewajipan sebagai seorang muslim tidak diabaikan inshaallah
since our food already digested(partially),so we resume our thrill rides here, which are (drum roll);
1. Space Mountain : Mission 2 – ok this is the most thrillest bestest ride i’ve ever ride on in my whole life.spinning, rocket powered,twisted body,everything.all 4 of us queued up but when we almost there, 2 of us surrendered.they cant stand the jerit2 they heard which sounds horror.so they both wait outside.while me and tasha experienced the most adrenalin rush ride everrr.recommended to those who love adventure.suka sangat.rasa macam nak q dan naik lagi tapi hari pun dah petang huhuhu
2. Star Tours – masuk ramai2 duduk dalam bilik kemudian ada 3D nye show,lepas tu tempat duduk tu bergerak2 ikut 3D tuh.best jugak la.tapi tak thrill sangat.ngeh
3. Naik roket yang pusing tuh.tak ingat lak apa nama ride huhu.mainan kanak2.siap rebut ngan budak2 lagi.tak boleh blah
after we finished with the rides in the Discoveryland, we saw all ppl heading to this one direction.we heard the disney song played.oh its the parade!the disney characters parade!it is called the Disney’s Once Upon a Dream Parade.we were all excited and rushed to the crowd of ppl.we saw thousands of ppl from all over the world.ada jugak malaysians.students kot.tapi who cares.the parade excites us more.we took pictures and videos.there were Sleeping Beauty,Little Mermaid,Beauty and the Beast,Lion King etc etc.
u can find almost all here, in their dedicated ‘car’, following the route.sambil lambai2 gitu.dan miming nyanyi lagu ikut turn kartun masing2.hehe comel ok parade ni.the route started from the Fantasyland and ends at the Mainstreet USA.we waited until the parade is finish to take picture with the characters but NO, WE MISSED THE CHANCE.sebab sepatutnya kami semua amik kesempatan masa kartun2 tu berkeliaran pagi tadi.oh bimbo lagi sekali.maka hampa (terutama chura).takpe,kalau ada rezeki kita gi lagi ye.wuhuuu
WALT DISNEY STUDIOS
its almost dark when we took our step to the disney studios.oh the tix we hav is for both park and studio.the park is much2 smaller than the first one.lesser rides.mainly the park relates to the hollywood movies eg Armageddon, Stitch and Twilight Zone.we had a brief walk and after that,both me and tasha went for…
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror – woosh best jugak.even before the ride, the staff pretend like the hotel is haunted.even all the furnitures covered with dust and spiderweb.just to get the feel of it.then we were brought into an escalator with seats inside.wore our seatbelts.we were facing to the hotel window.the hotel height is around 100 metres high.then the window opens and we were going up and down with high speed – sebijik macam solero space shot yang kat genting tuh.tapi less takut sebab ni dalam lif.space shot tu open hehe
its freezing cold when we head back to our hostel.coz its already 8pm.but we had fun so who cares.kaki mmg sakit toksah cakap lah.memang terlelap lah dalam RER dan metro.but we cant complain much coz we were tooo happy 🙂 we got back, had our ‘malaysian’ maggi+brahim dinner and of course packing!because we have to catch an early flight to barcelona the very next day 🙂
confess : disneyland is not that bad 😛
p/s : happy 7 month,dear 🙂
