Disney Diary 2017, Day 1.

This year we decided to head straight to the hotel using the Magical Shuttle service unlike last year where we headed into Paris from CDG and made our own way there on the train. I could not recommend using the shuttle service enough, it was so easy to get to the parks using it and super quick although it did take us like an hour to find it as CDG is a fucking maze. We rushed straight into the hotel though and got our room sorted as quick as possible, we had a Texas suite at the Cheyenne which was the cutest hotel I've ever stayed in. I loved the theme, so much western and Toy Story I love how much detail goes into even the 'budget' hotels at Disney. I have to say for a hotel that is having a lot of work done on it we didn't feel inconvenienced at all, we got breakfast vouchers for a few mornings of our stay for in the parks which was fab as it was a nice change and the staff were ever so friendly, I'd love to stay in this hotel again it's definitely now my favourite Disney one.
Our first stop once we'd taken in sights of Main Street and the castle was Discoveryland which is probably my joint favourite land (obvs with Frontierland) I was so excited to see Star Tours without all the boards. I was even more excited to ride it, sadly I only rode it once and probably wont ever again because I have never felt motion sickness like it, even though I loved the scenario and the entire ride set up it made me feel so ill which broke my heart. We also rode the newly done  Hyper Space Mountain and of course had to sing the Star Wars music. To conclude our little Star Wars time in the park, of course it had to be the Sunday while I had all my R2 clothes on we headed to Cafe Hyperion for Yoda Cupcakes which were soooo good, I wish I'd eaten more of these on the trip tbh. The chocolate brownie was so rich and dense and the frosting was just lush. Like I need to go back just for one of these if I'm honest.
Once we felt refueled we headed off to Frontierland which was looking even more beautiful than usual with all the Halloween decorations. I swear this land just has my heart it is perfect. After a good wander and riding The Phantom Manor which is like one of the best rides ever we checked the app to see what was free and noticed Buzz had a small queue and pretty much ran there. I've wanted to ride Buzz since opened and it's been closed every time I've been! So I was properly excited when I saw a queue time of 25 minutes haha.
As you can see I was far too excited about riding Buzz Lightyear, like way too excited aha. It was so worth the years I've waited though, I love everything about Toy Story so this has to be one of the best rides I've done at Disney I'm so happy we got a photopass for this trip, it was so worth even if it was just for the photos on this ride the concentration on our faces is ridiculous. 
Finally we did a bit of shopping which meant I got myself a replacement set of Han and Leia pins as I lost Han and a Porgs mug which is the best thing ever, along with a couple of gifts, before we headed to Fuente Del Oro for Fajitas and Churros. We skipped the fire works and headed back to the hotel fairly early as we were exhausted and really needed our bed. I love the first day of a Disney trip you just feel so happy when you see the castle and you can't help but get excited about every single thing and I love that feeling you get while walking down Main Street, I had so much anxiety about this trip but a lot of it disappeared when I saw the castle and Main Street and it was like all my problems no longer existed as I was in Disney and I love that about the place, it's like a happy place you can just go to and be in a little bubble and real life just doesn't effect you there most of the time. 

I can't wait to share the rest of my trip with you, I'm properly proud of my photos from the trip this time around so I'm super excited to share my favourites and what we got up to on here! Keep your eyes peeled for more.
