“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Disney parks are famous for their productions: parades, shows, and nighttime fireworks. The goal is to transport you into their stories and make the illusion real. Disneyland Paris is no exception in that regard. We caught the afternoon parade in the main park and of course the final show of the night – the fireworks extravaganza.

The castle grounds are surrounded by these square topiaries and other Sleeping-Beauty-esque details
The fireworks kick off around the castle – the castle becomes the canvas for the whole show


I don’t know this kid, but she looks like she’s having fun.

After the fireworks, we rushed back to the coach, 4 hours back to the ferry, 2 hours for border control, 2 hours on the ferry from Dunkirk to Dover and 3 hours on the coach back up to London. The upside is we pulled into England as the sun was rising over the white cliffs of Dover.
