After a fitful night's sleep courtesy of the world's most uncomfortable bed (it felt like a bale of straw wrapped in potatoes) it was time to say goodbye to Compiegne.

It's a beautiful little town and so close to Disney that I would recommend a stop if you can.

The journey took about 75 minutes and I can only describe the scream from the girls when they saw the first sign for Disney as blood-curdling.

Point of note: as you drive closer to Paris the quality of others' driving is in inverse proportion to the number of dents on their cars. Coincidence? I think not.

We check in to Davy Crockett Ranch and pick up our Magic Passes. We know our cabin won't be ready until 4pm so we hit Disneyland.



Walking from the car park. I'm not excited at all - can you tell?!



The queue for bag check. Yes it was hell, but it was Disney hell.



My crew



We classed today as a bonus day - if we get to the parks and get on some rides, all to the good. We're here until Saturday so there's no rush.

First up: IASW. Best we get it out of the way now and then we can enjoy the rest of the holiday 😂😂



Onboard "the most repetitive song that ever sailed". Save me!!















At the end, the ride has "good-bye" in many languages however this appears to say Fart, which made me laugh.



We then do Alice's Curious Labyrinth - the first time for team Blusteryday - and it was quite fun! Here is the view from the top - it's so beautiful here.



We snaffle some lunch and were starting to flag and so we decide to leave Disneyland for a quick browse around Disney Village.

Charlotte is born to shop (unlike the rest of us) and she was keen to see what she could spend her euros on.



It's only 5 minutes back to Davy Crockett Ranch and by the time we get back it's 4pm and time to pick up our keys...but the room isn't ready yet

In the same breath the CM comps us 5 free soft drinks (do I look like an ogre?!) and we sit back in the sun for another half an hour.



We have been given a prime spot, literally around the corner from reception and the swimming pool - thanks Mickey!!



Here's our home for the week. Two bedrooms - and we bagged half board so not much need for cooking.






Paula and I hop over The Trading Post and pick up a bottle of chilled Muscadet for €5 and enjoy the sun on our decking.



Here's the kids bedroom - they have their own loo and bathroom too. It's a real home from home.

The sun is shining. It's warm. And the forecast is for it to get warmer this week - we're finally home with Mickey.

Tonight we're off to the on-site restaurant for dinner - it's an all you can eat buffet which we treat as a challenge, not an offer. I'll post some pics up later if the Muscadet doesn't hit me too hard.



If you're looking for a great buffet, then look no further than Crockett's Tavern. A great buffet and the ribs! Are. To. Die. For!!!






Sorry, this was all that was left of dessert. Amazing meal, especially for mass catering. A great meal. Would I pay full price? Probably not - so snag a half board deal of you can.



Oh and the sangria is the best *HIC*

Goodnight all!



Thank you and goodnight!
