My favorite panel inside Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland Paris. Who didn’t want to grow up to be a Disney villain?
Inside Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant, or Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, where we spent a LOT of time when the sprinkles we’d been seeing on and off all day became a torrential downpour, and we had to take cover! The rain was coming from every direction, flooding the ground, and lightning was striking all around us. At one point, a bolt hit so close that the speakers pumping sweet music throughout the park abruptly made a huge static sound and then just went off. Creepy!
Jack had never been on It’s a Small World! Can you believe it? What have you even been doing with your life? This was shut down for a rain shower, and when it opened back up, we were basically first in line! It seemed cool to me at the time, although typing this out makes me realize I’m a nerd.
Discoveryland at Disneyland Paris, where we rode Space Mountain TWICE because it was raining off an on and the park had really cleared out by the end of the day. Rollercoasters give me such a sense of dread while I’m in line for them, I’m terrified the whole way through them, and then I have such fun that I’m dying to do it again. When we got off the first time, Jack asked, “Was that you screaming the entire ride?” Yes, yes, it was.
