Our Best Family Holiday
Sat at the computer trying to write my Childminding policies, I found myself flicking through snaps of the children when they were younger and I happened across our Euro Disney photographs.
This is the only holiday abroad we have ever been on as a family and I was quite shocked to find that it was all the way back in 2003. Believe it or not we went for hubby’s 30th Birthday (not that he is a big kid or anything *ahem*)
I cannot remember all the minute details, but I do remember struggling on the train from Bournemouth to Waterloo with numerous suitcases, three very excited children and a buggy. The sheer annoyance in London that stations and tubes are not particularly child friendly (especially when travelling with a buggy) and the relief when we finally got on the rather packed Eurostar.
The train journey was uneventful and fairly fast and then we were there! We were shown to our Wild West rooms at the Hotel Cheyenne, which were small but perfectly formed. Of course we couldn’t wait to get exploring, so off we went.
The sheer wonder on the children’s faces as we reached the main park will stay with me forever. One of our first stops was to a shop to buy autograph books and then off we went!

Everything about Disney caters for the family and I was most impressed that I could get to ride the roller coasters too, without having to queue a second time. This was unheard of in the UK at the time, but I went off with the little ones whilst hubby and Abbey queued and then we swapped at the exit. My favourite was the Rock N’ Roll Coaster. The ride is exhilarating – being shot from a catapult from 0-60 in just a few seconds, it’s certainly not one for the faint hearted! The Indiana Jones one was great too, as not only did it send you round the right way, you then went round the same course backwards!
