I absolutely love Paris. Like anywhere, I always have a different experience when I visit the known capital of love. Paris is exceptional and is a great romantic getaway. I managed to book a package deal with Secret Escapes for a 3-day trip with flights, hotel and Disneyland tickets for £289pp. I wrote about this recently in ‘Where Dreams Come True: My Experience at Disneyland Paris’. Today I want to focus on my 3 day trip to Paris. See the breakdown below of the days.
3-day trip with flights, hotel and Disneyland tickets for £289pp.
Day 1 – A view of Paris
We landed at Charles de Gaulle Airport very early in the morning. I think we arrived at like 8 am in the morning! I thought this was great because we would have a full day in Paris.
We stayed at the B&B Disneyland Hotel (it wasn’t the most luxurious hotel I’ve stayed in and there are a number of hotel option to stay in), and locating the hotel on google maps wasn’t the easiest.
There were so many options and routes. The first option was to buy a single for the hotel, which cost €38.99 for two people. The second option was to get a travel card which would allow us to travel the whole of Paris for a week at just €22.89 each, (you need a passport photo for this). We decided that it would be smarter to go with the second option.
We managed to get to the hotel at around 10 am!! When we got there, we were told that we had to wait till 3 pm before we could enter our rooms! The was hella long! I think because of the shock on our faces they allowed us to enter the rooms at 1.30 pm. We had a little nap, freshened up and headed back into Paris. Of course, we headed to the Effile Tower and had a photoshoot literally. See the pictures below.
NB: When booking a package ask relevant questions like when is check-in at the hotel etc.
We finished the night at a lovely Asian restaurant called Le Point De Sichuan and headed back to our hotel.
Day 2 – My Birthday Disneyland 😊
After a lovely day trip to Paris, it was time to be a BIG kid and head over to Disneyland. We first did Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, which was a maze that took forever to go through! Then tried out a few rides. Unfortunately, Walt Disney Studios Park but Disneyland Park was a better option if I do say so myself.
We then headed back to the hotel to have some dinner and catch a nap before the fireworks.
P.S for more photos at Disneyland head over to Where Dreams Come True: My Experience at Disneyland Paris
Day 3 – Another day trip to Paris
The final day was also beautiful; we woke up early to have breakfast. Then checked out of our hotel room. We had a late flight so paid to lock our suitcases in their lockers and headed to Paris. We made more time to see more of the sites on Day 3:
- Louvre Museum
- Arc de Triomphe
- Place des Vosges
- Palace of Versailles
We ended the trip at KONG, a lovely restaurant that serves some of the best Asian food I’ve ever tasted.
