January 2012, 3 nights at Hotel Cheyenne.
My first trip ever to Disneyland Paris!
I loved every minute of it. I´m already dying to go back there.  :D

Summer 1994 - Hotel Cheyenne - coach - Me, my sister, mum and dad
First trip ever.  I don't remember much of it, but I remember I was too scared to ride It's a Small World, as I had an idea that it featured big dinosaurs!  :lol:

Summer 1996 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me, my sister, mum and dad
I remember much more from this trip. I really started to pay attention to the fantastic entertainment, streetmosphere and general atmosphere that filled every inch of DLP back then. I've also been told that I went completely crazy when my parents took me (and my sister) to Paris for an afternoon! I did not want to!!

Summer 1998 - Hotel Sequoia Lodge - coach - Me, my sister, mum and dad
A very fond memory. I remember that I got a jungle explorers hat (not Indy, no character), that I had wanted already in 1996, so I could really explore Adventure Isle. I also remember that only my dad and my sister went to Paris this year - they had learned from '96 ;)

Easter 2001 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me and my mum
Perhaps my fondest memory of all! Me and my mum visited my sister as she was working at DLP this time. Being 11 it was very hard to live without my sister at home, so it was fantastic to visit her and spend some time with her in the heart of the magic.

Summer 2001 - Hotel Disneyland - coach - Me, my sister, mum and dad
My sister was back home as she had had some unfortunate experiences during the 1.5 month she worked at DLP - bad managers, thrown around between jobs and 6-7 different roommates. My parents wanted to show her - once again - the side of Disneyland that she loved, so we stayed at Hotel Disneyland. Amazing experience and a great trip as my sister too got to hook up again with some of the friends she had got during the time there.

Summer 2003 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me, mum and dad
First family trip without my sister. First experience with the studios. Last autograph trip of mine. I started to pay much more attention to what is Disneyland for me now and what was Disneyland for me in 96. The atmosphere.

Summer 2006 - Hotel Newport Bay Club - coach - Me, mum and dad
Officially our last family trip to Disneyland and a great one of course. First time I brought a long a big camera and I remember taking loads of photos. First experience with Newport Bay Club too!

October 2008 - Hotel Newport Bay Club - coach - Me, my sister and my mum
I had finished school and found a full time job and had promised to invite my mum and sister to Halloween in Disneyland if so. First season experience and some great time with my mum and sister, who revisited Newport Bay where she had worked briefly in 2001.

October 2009 - Hotel Sequoia Lodge - coach - Me and my mum
We had to visit for another Halloween season, but my sister couldn't get time off work. A lovely time revisiting our most beloved favorites and memories of 15 years of trips.

Summer 2010 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me and my friend Kristian
First trip "on my own" - with my friend Kristian. It was the first visit where I really tried Thrill Rides with my first on: TOT, Space Mountain, Star Tours and Crush' Coaster. Great, great fun including an afternoon in Paris.

December/January 2010/2011 - Hotel Santa Fe - train - Me, mum and dad
My christmas present for my parents - a new years trip. First ever Christmas in Disneyland and first ever New Years Eve away from home. Quite simply: pure magic!

Summer 2011 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me and my friend Kristian
Me and Kristian repeating the success of 2010 with a wonderful summer trip. Comeback of Tarzan reminded me of when I took part in this show. First visit to Toy Story Playland and Rock'n'Rollercoaster.

To come....

Summer 2012 - Hotel Santa Fe - coach - Me and Kristian
Third consecutive summer trip with Kristian. Looking forward to celebrating 20 years of magic (18 for me).

I remember this being my first trip without my parents and I loved it, not so much the coach ride which seemed to take forever! I was more into Disneymania than any of my friends who thought it was a trip to meet boys ( we were an all girls school lol) we went in mid november i think because i remember that the christmas celebrations were happening, and that was the time they were doing something to the castle so it was all covered up in scaffolding, which was a huge dissappointment!

September 2009- Santa Fe
Persuaded my partner ( who has no interest in disney) to take us and our then two and half year old daughter to disney and I loved it! The fact that i got to see the castle without scaffolding was breathtaking as it signifies that you are in the world of disney! seeing my daughters face watching the parades and meeting the characters ( not even scared about them bless her) was a tear jerker for me and a memorable trip indeed!

Jan 2011- Santa Fe
my partner was more willing to go this time as we had a real bargin in the price and he knew what to expect, so we done a lot more, went to see the buffalo bill show, which was average on the food side, but a great way to wind down the evening, and we took every opportunity to use our half boards for character meals i think we had three meals at the lucky nugget saloon and two at cafe mickey which was wonderful for my daughter who was even more taken in by it all, only bad side was that it was -6 on our first day and stayed like that until we left, lucky i was prepared. and the hotel had a refurb which was better than the previous stay although i know people have complained about it in the past but i think that considering you are on site and at the cheapest hotel you cant expect too much, but i liked it considering all we done was go straight to bed as soon as we got back into the rooms!

March 2012- Sequoia Lodge!

counting down the days and i cannot wait, my daughter definately has caught the disney bug from me and I have decided that I know the parks well enough to venture on my own with her, and looking forward to being in a different hotel! We popped into the sequoia lodge on our last trip when our daughter was having a toilet moment issue and said to myself that if i was going to come back again anytime soon i would stay in this hotel, so cannot wait to see what it has to offer, my daughter remembers sooo much from her last visit and has already told me where she wants to go so it will be great fun, only down side is that i wont be able to go on the tower of terror as my daughter is too young and would be scared, so have to give that a miss, have told all my family that this would be my last trip to dlp until she is old enough to go to florida, but i have already been looking at going for a few days during the christmas season  


Hi everyone.
I stayed in Sequoia Lodge in the end of August 2005. That was the last time I was in Disneyland. We are returning this year in June 2012 and guess where we are staying Sequoia Lodge. This hotel is beautiful as its cosy in winter and beautiful camp site in the summer. The rooms have been done up this year and they are fabulous and cant wait to go this summer. When I stayed in the lodges the last time I loved the walk up to the hotel for breakfast early in the morning. Thats when you recognise you are in sunny and warm Disney, Paris, France
