That would have been enough for one little girl to take in, but as I mentioned, I’m a bit crazy over the top at times. I thought it would be an idea to go to Disneyland Paris, the very next day! I only thought about it two or three weeks before the party. When you are sick, it's not practical to book something miles in advance. You have to go when you feel well. The adverts sucked me in and before I knew it, it was booked. I’ve priced it up before and thought it was a bit expensive, but there seemed to be adverts after adverts all over the TV saying “book now and get this that and the other free”. You know sometimes these deals are not as great as the make out, but I swear this one was good. We were staying in a top-notch Disney Hotel, having three course meals everyday, drinks and cakes everyday and practically spent nothing because we had a complimentary voucher for most things. I couldn't believe our luck.
Daisy loved meeting all the characters, Spiderman, Merida, Woody and Jessie, Mickey, Minnie, the Disney Princesses and of course, no Disney visit would be complete without meeting Anna and Elsa! There were a few hairy moments at the start, namely a scary roller coaster in disguise. I've never been so glad to get off a ride. I swear we though it was a child's train ride, you know quite tame, but Jesus! It was a super fast roller coaster and believe me I'm no thrill seeker. We got into our seats, I casually rested my arm behind Daisy and within seconds it became apparent to me that arm was going to move to pin Daisy in like a seat belt. We saw the funny side of it, while mum and I were telepathically saying all our swear words. Daisy was shouting at the top of her voice "this is fun", she had the best time. It was a very tiring holiday for the adults however.
So if you ever forget where you were for your 5th Birthday Daisy Well, you woke up in a Disney hotel in Paris and had breakfast with Mickey Mouse. Then we took the train into the centre of Paris and went up the Eiffel Tower. I even managed to take the photo I would use on our family Christmas card. Looking forward to our next adventure, whatever it may be.
