Disney in France

Anelia Marston

Disney. Disney! DISNEY! That about sums up my trip last weekend.
To elaborate a bit more, last weekend, me and six other people took a weekend trip to Paris and EuroDisney. We arrived on Friday morning and spent the whole first day seeing everything Paris had to offer.

This wasn’t my first time in the beautiful city, but I still enjoyed every second of my trip. We started off our day by visiting the catacombs, which I had never seen before. It is crazy that there are millions of bones just lying under the city of Paris. I definitely would not want to be stuck down there overnight.
After the catacombs, we visited the Notre-Dame Cathedral. It was just as beautiful as I had remembered it the last time. Next on our list was the Eiffel Tower. We saw it in both daylight and when it was twinkling at night. We also adventured to the outside of the Louvre and to the Arc de Triumph. We had an extremely eventful day despite how exhausted we were from traveling, so we had an early night because we were about to be heading to one of the happiest place on Earth… DISNEY!
Bright and early the next day, we were all up and ready to go to Disney. With big smiles plastered to our faces, we were equivalent to 9-year-olds there. Our first stop at Disney was to buy some Mickey ears because what Disney trip is complete without a pair of sequin Mickey ears?
Once we got our ears, we rode on all the European popular Disney rides, such as the Tower of Terror, Ratatouille, Space Mountain Mission 2, and Buzz Lightyear. We also got to meet Ariel, which was awesome. I was star struck and could barely form a sentence when I was speaking to her. We ended our fun-filled day by watching the fireworks at the Sleeping Beauty’s castle. I wish I had more time in Disney and Paris, but it was a great weekend.
School has been crazy the last few weeks as finals in slowly creeping towards us. On Wednesday, we visited the Palazzo Vechhio in Florence and got to see the Room of 500, which is where the rumored missing Da Vinci fresco is located. We also saw the Room of Maps. The room is exactly as it sounds. It is a room filled with maps painted everywhere, which is basically a Global Studies major heaven. The terrace has opened at the roof of our school, so it has been a mad dash to get a spot up there to study, get work done, catch some rays, and make the best of the time we have left.
